WORILD'S FAIR WINNER . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

WORILDS FAIR WINNER . Baron Lee II . 30294 of World s Fair fame , has made a great reputation for the herds of the Rileys , of Thorntown , Indiana . Baron Lee II . 30294 is not only a noted sire , but his pigs have been great prize winners at the leading fairs on the State Fair Circuit for years past . When Baron Lee II . 30294 ln the hotly contested battle at the World s Columbian Exposition was awarded the second place , many of the leading breeders of the country predicted for him as great reputation as for his half brother that by a scratch won the first place .

THB CORN STATES MUST DO IT . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

THB CORN STATES MUST DO IT . The appropriation by the National Government for a display ot our agricultural resources at the Paris Expostgon in 1900 Is but $ 75 , 000 . When that Is subdivided so as to present all our products that have claim upon it , lt will be wholly inadequate to even attempt the practical showing which corn must uave If it ls to receive any benefit from the opportunity which the Exposition offers . It becomes the duty of the states most Interested ln corn , and whose prosperity so largely depends upon the prosperity vf the corn grower , to provide tbe means to make an adequate presentation of the food value of corn . Money so spent will return an hundred fold in the advance in price of theirs greatest product . If the six great corn states would devote onetenth of one per cent o » . the annual value of their present corn crop for a single year to the effort to find a foreign market for our surplus product , it would provide ample funds , and would be returned a...

I ADVArrw TMjf ™ T - , T ™ OF HOGS There seems to be 9 a M WfHf ^ Kt ^ Wf rWf the advance . While the production or meats has increased to some extent , the export has increased far more , showing that there is a very brisk , strong demand for hog products the world over , says Wallace s Farmer . Tho export clearances-, for example , of pork week before last were 787 , 000 pounds as compared with 680 , 000 pounds the corresponding week last year . There is an increase of 3 , 000 , 000 pounds in bacon , of 8 , 000 , 000 pounds in • lard , and the total product exported during the same week was 29 , 522 , 000 pounds as against 18 , 243 , 000 pounds a year ago . It is this that is putting tho money in hogs and causing a splendid feeling all over the hog growing country . We are glad to see it . There has been less advance in the price of hogs and hog products in the last two years than in any other product of the farm . Naturally so , because hog pro ducts are less perishable and can b...

THE REAL FACTS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

THE REAL FACTS . To come down to the real facts , your advertising is the most important part of your business . Yet how many breeders of improved stock seem to give it the least attention of anything . If you gave as little attention to your breeding as you give to your advertising , you would soon have nothing but scrubs on your farm and bankruptcy would follow . You say anybody can advertise . Yes , and so can anybody breed liye stock , but can they breed skillfully just the right kind that will win at the leading fairs or top the markets ? To advertise properly you will have to think to give special seasons of thought to the matter and devote time to this very important kind of work . You should be just as careful to ad- \ -ertise at the right time and in The Farm Home as that you breed the right kind of stock desired by the up-to-date breeder . Just as much depends upon how and when you advertise as whether you advertise . If you advertise in poor mediums you not only do not de...

THE PROFESSOR AT A STOCK MEETING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

THE PROFESSOR AT A STOCK MEETING . Now that the Fair season is about over , we hear the usual complaints of disgruntled exhibitors or their friends . In a recent issue of the Breeders Gazette , a writer calls to task Prof . Curtis , who passed upon the Down breeds of sheep at Springfield State Fair , because the Professor did not make the awards to English bred sheep , which were Royal winners , Instead of picking what were considered the most meritorious in the classes before him . And he goes on in a carping and faultfinding way , because the judge was a professor and theorist , as he said . Instead of a practical breeder , etc . Now , while we are not in position to pass upon the merits of Prof . Curtis decision in this particular instance , it reminds me of an incident at the last annual meeting of the Illinois Live Stock Breeders Association . Just as the meeting was beginning , the writer asked a very successful breeder and feeder , who rather prided himself upon being a pract...

maama-araamammmmmmamaaammaaa j Swine j [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

maama-araamammmmmmamaaammaaa j Swine j THE FASRM HOG . Mr . N . J . Shepherd writes The Farm Home as follows : Every sow kept for a breeder should be accustomed to being handled so that if at any time it should become necessary , it can be handled without unnecessary excitement . A sow in a good , thrifty condition at farrowing rarely needs assistance . At the same time there is nothing lost in having the sows accustomed to being handled in case it should be necessary . Much of the success or failure with pigs depends upon the condition of the - sow for weeks before farrowing . If the sow is kept in a good , thrifty condition , given plenty of opportunity to exercise , given food that will develop bone and muscle rather than fat , there is but little danger but that she will come out all right . But if kept closely confined and fed on a fattening , constipating diet , there is considerable risk of the pigs not doing well , if they are farrowed alive . Good care must be taken at this...

j Jersey Cattle j [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

j Jersey Cattle j !|««»««»« SJ «« .. «| 4 . 4 . « . SISISI « . « S * DOBS IT PAY TO FEED LIBERALLY ? Prof . D . H . Otis writes : At a Farmers Institute , Tonganoxle , Kan ., a dairyman gave in his report on producing milk for the Kansas City market from common cows , picked up through the country . So far as possible these cows were fresh in the fall . During the winter they receive a ration consisting of a mixture of 14 to 16 pounds of bran and corn meal and what clover hay and sugar cane they will eat . In summer they receive in addition to pasture and soiling crops , four to five pounds of bran . By this system of liberal feeding , a two years record shows an annual income per cow of $ 70 . 99 , the milk being sold at an average of 8 cents per gollon . Last year at the Agricultural College our best cow cost us $ 32 . 80 for feed , the highest of any cow in the herd , and about $ 3 . 50 above the average of the herd , and yet the profit from that cow over the cost of feed was $ 2...

! PoultriT i [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 November 1899

! PoultriT i maaammaammmmmaaaaaaaaaaaam r NOTES ON FEEDING . Give a little salt seasoning , but dont overdo it . . Onions are a healthful food , tending to keep fowls In good condition and do not effect flavor of eggs . Fresh milk for chicks , and milk in any form is good for the grown up ones . Carrots , green corn , cabbage , beets , turnips , pumpkins , and apples are all good green food . Dont be a medicine crank ; use good judgment in variety of food , and expend the medicine time in keeping your fowls and houses clean and free from vermin . Feed the poultry on a mixed diet of chopped turnips and clover , with only , grain enough to balance the ration , as you do a cow , and see if you do not get better results . Turnips are one of the best of winter foods for poultry . They are excellent cooked , if this can be managed . —National Fancier . BARGAINS IN FINE POULTRY . Mr .
