Proper Care of Horses Feet Often Neglected [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Proper Care of Horses Feet Often Neglected An Important but ofttimes . neglected job is to trim the feet of farm horses . In dry weather the feet become , tough and hard : and it is difticult to do anything with them . However , following a rain , or a spell , of damp weather , they will cut -easily ; and it is no great effort to get them into shape for the season s work . Most farmers own a rasp which . can be used to file down the rough , unsightly edges of the hoofs which have grown during the winter . Few farm horses are expected to work on cement or concrete roadways and they do not have shoes . A little judicious trimming at this time will give the horse better grip on . the ground and more confidence -to go at heavy pulls . * The colts , also , should not be forgotten for the care which ; you give the feet of a colt may govern to . a large extent the conformation of his legs at , maturity .
Find Lambs on Pasture " Are Most Profitable [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Find Lambs on Pasture Are Most Profitable Lambs : produced -on pasture are more profitable , is the conclusion of Purdue university agricultural experiment station after two years work . When ewe . and lambs were both fed on grain and hay the profit per Iamb amounted to $ 4 . 11 , and when both were pastured on timothy , oats and alfalfa pastures , the profit per lamb amounted to $ 9 . 81 . The market finish of the two sets of lambs was the same , said Claude Harper , sheep specialist . Does it pay to feed lambs , on pasture ? is a question often asked by Hoosier farmers . Purdue found that lambs developed on pasture returned a profit of $ 9 . 81 and lambs fed grain , on pasture returned a profit of $ 9 . 97 per lamb above feed costs .
Red Clover Excellent Pasture for the Hogs [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Red Clover Excellent Pasture for the Hogs Red clover makes an excellent pasture for hogs and ranks close to alfalfa as a forage . From the standpoint of the average farmer or hog feeder , it will . probably be the most used forage crop particularly because it fits better into almost any system of crop rotation than does alfalfa . However , it will not usually support quite so many head per acre , nor will the forage season be quite so . long , but if not pastured too closely and not allowed to go to seed , it will generally produce an abundance of good forage all summer . An acre of clover should furnish ample pasture for from 8 to 16 shotes if- properly handled . Clover Is high in protein and will replace a large part of the tankage or similar feeds , necessary to get maximum growth .

MANY MORE PEOPLE DIE FROM HEATSTROKE THAN OF EXPOSURE TO THE COLD , INSTITUTE FINDS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
MANY MORE PEOPLE DIE FROM HEATSTROKE THAN OF EXPOSURE TO THE COLD , INSTITUTE FINDS Heating Plant Now Used to Circulate Cool Air in Homes in Summer . Summer heat is from two and a half to five times as deadly to humans as winter cold . Yet . although 7 cents of every home building dollar is spent for heating equipment , the Holland Institute of Thermology -of Holland , Mich ., . points out that home cooling plants are rare , although modern sci ence has made v them entirely practical . According to the latest figures of the United States Public Health Service , 646 persons died from heatstroke and only 246 as a result of exposure to cold in one year . In the preceding summer and winter 1 , 355 were killed by heat and 239 by cold . The statistics do not account for the vast number of non-fatal heat prostrations . But though the cooling of theaters , auditoriums , schools , hospitals , banks , factories , offices and other structures has become common practice , air-con-ditioning the ...
ALFALFA HAY IS GOOD FOR HORSES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
ALFALFA HAY IS GOOD FOR HORSES LIVE STOCK m NEWi Fed With Corn , It Makes a Well-Balanced Ration . Alfalfa hay can safely be fed either as the sole roughage for horses , or to replace half or more of timothy or prairie hays , according to A . O . Bhoad of the New York state college of agriculture . Experiments have shown that horses at hard work and fed alfalfa hay as the sole roughage , maintained their weight on 20 to 22 per cent less grain than , others fed timothy hay . Alfalfa makes a well-balanced ration when fed with corn alone . Timothy hay may not be fed with corn alone , as this ration is low in protein and needs a supplement to balance it . With grains other than corn—such as oats , barley , peas and bran , which in themselves contain considerable protein—alfalfa should not be used as the sole roughage . Under such circumstances lower the amount of al falfa fed ; use , for example , half alfalfa and half timothy . For horses , the first cutting of alfalfa is more benefici...
Find Sour Milk Good Ingredient of Protein [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Find Sour Milk Good Ingredient of Protein Sour skim milk in unlimited quantities gives a higher total and average egg production , higher profit over feed cost , and produced eggs at a lower feed cost than semi-solid buttermilk , dried buttermilk , meat scrap or sour skim milk whey . The dried buttermilk and semi-solid buttermilk pens gave a smaller percentage of large eggs and a larger percentage of small eggs than did the sour skim milk pen . Some skim milk whey is inferior to the other feeds in every way . The dried buttermilk pen gives the highest hatchability . A comparison of semi-solid and dried buttermilk shows the semi-solid pen gives higher per cent production and eggs per pullet . The dried pen , however , gives slightly higher yearly average profit over feed cost per pullet , cheaper feed cost , per dozen eggs and higher hatchability ; . ., .. The results of experiments indicate that a vegetable , protein supplement to sour skimmed milk , such as pe ameal , alfalfa meal ...

Poor Dairy Ration Not Bad in Many Respects The commonly considered poor ration is not so bad in . some respects , according to Dr . F . B . Hadley of the department of veterinary science of the University of Wisconsin . The data , that have been gathered on this subject have come from the herds , of dairy cows at the experiment station that are being put through- a five-year test to determine the importance of ration in the ability of cattle to withstand the ravages of the abortion germ . . , The poor ration is one composed of corn , silage ,, timothy hay , non-legume , pasture arid corn gluten meal .

Healthy Calves Raised Without Use of Milk [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Healthy Calves Raised Without Use of Milk Although it is much easier to raise calves by feeding them milk for six • months or more , good calves can be raised without milk after the first two months , provided that they have a good start and are strong , healthy calves at weaning time . It is essential that such calves be allowed to eat grain and hay at an early age . The grain fed during the first - two or three weeks is cracked corn or crushed onts , or a mixture of both , fed dry . When the milk Is discontinued a more complete mixture Is used . It is best to feed some form of leguminous hay , because of the protein content .
Dairy Notes [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Dairy Notes Higher production from the dairy cow means higher profits . . » * • ¦ Young bulls as well as older . ones should have access to salt . ¦ » * • . Every calf should be provided with plenty of roughage , such as alfalfa or mixed hay , as soon as it will eat it . * • » Members of New York dairy improvement associations prove that a larger ration of grain , for cows is not an expense but an investment , and in some instances the return is as much as 300 per cent . * « » . It takes two purebreds to make a world record at the pail . The best cow in the world cant do it with a scrub to handle her ! * * * There is no better dairy feed than silage , legume hay , ground corn and cob meal , cottonseed meal , and wheat bran or ground oats . * * * That the foodMi ;; of sil . ige to the dairy herd increases milk production and brings greater profits is just one of the many talking points in favor of the silo on the 1 arm .
Scratching Found Not Essential to Fowls [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Scratching Found Not Essential to Fowls Three flocks of Rhode Island Reds and three White Leghorns at the University of Illinois indicated that hens do as well when fed grain in boxes as when they are obliged to scratch for it in deep litter . This method has the advantage of being much , cleaner and more sanitary . One lot . of each breed was fed dry mash in hoppers and scratch grain morning and night in straw . litter . A second lot received dry mash in : hoppers , but the grain was fed twice daily in shallow troughs . For the third lot the scratch grain was ground and mixed with the mash and the . whole ration self-fed in hoppers . No high records were made , but the egg yields , were not affected materially by the methods of feeding . The test ran for 41 weeks . The grain mixture was shelled corn , 70 pounds arid oats , 30 pounds . The inash was made up of 17 pounds each of ground corn ,-ground oats , wheat bran and flour middlings , 25-pounds of dried-buttermflk , 5 pounds of b...
Pigs at Weaning Time Need Plenty of Grain [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Pigs at Weaning Time Need Plenty of Grain Pigs at weaning time should be getting all the grain they will eat The ration should include tankage or some form of milk . With a good pasture on which to run , pigs should be getting a good start for market weight Pigs which are doing . well should make a pound a day gain in weight . Self-feeders are a convenient means for feeding com and tankage , and the use of self-feeders results in as good and often better gains than the handfeeding method . A self-feeder should keep the feed dry , keep feed before the pigs at all times , and . prevent waste .

Ensilage Is Essential to Cattle and Sheep [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 25 September 1929
Ensilage Is Essential to Cattle and Sheep Feeders of beef • cattle and sheep have even . more , reason to build a silo and-feed silage than the dairymen , according to experiment station results . Yet nearly all dairymen feed silage , while the majority of beef mqn and sheep men dp not . After summarizing the results of all experimental data available Prof . F . B . Morrison ,, director of the New York Experiment ; station , finds that the average ton value of silage for dairy cows is approximately one-third that of good mixed hay , while the per acre yield of silage Is four or five times greater than ; that of hay . For beef cattle , he finds silage worth half as much per ton as clover hay , and for sheep more than half as much . In an average of 20 trials with two-year-old steers , gains on sllagefed cattle cost $ 1 . 22 a hundredweight less than ; on steers fed no silage . In these tests a ton of silage replaced 27 pounds of concentrates and 605 pounds of clover bay . V Prof . Mo...
