Best Breeds for the Farm [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
Best Breeds for the Farm By J . Garretson Terrill . IN selecting the several breeds shown in our illustration , it was my intention t . o portray without partiality the breeds best adapted . to the farm . If I have left out your favorite fowls dont . blanie me , as my space was limited . Then , again , there are good breeds that I cannot recommend to the farmer as a general iiurpose fowl . For instance , take the Hamburgs . truly one of the most beautiful l owis in existence , and good layers , yet I could not honestly recommend them as a f ami fowl . So before you condemn rn 67 consider the fact that I have tried to be fair . : Study carefully the different varieties and choose the one you like . best . Do not select a fowl that you do not care for , just because others say they are the best . I assure you that you will do best with the breed you really love . : • ; No doubt the Light Brahma is the most popularAsiatic breed . They are the largest breed in : existence and truly a fa...
A Good Dairy Book Free [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
A Good Dairy Book Free We have arranged with the science department of the American Cereal Company , Chicago , 111 ., to send a copy of a very valuable book on feeding dairy cattle , entitled Modern Dairy Feeding , free to those who ask for it . All that is necessary , is to ask for it on a postal card , mentioning this paper , and it will come-by return mail . Those of our readers interested in dairy feeding will miss a good thing if they do not send for it . 4 » &gt; » —The kind of expansion which most interests the farmer is how to expand the quantity of crops per acre , the quantity of milk and . butter per cow , orbeef or pork per quantity of feed , but more especially the contents of his pocketboolc . The regular readers of the Rural get many hints as to ways and means of producing these desired results . Take a sly peep at our great war plan outlined on page 135 and try how it goes yourself .
An Experiment in Turkey Raising [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
An Experiment in Turkey Raising By Emmerette R . Wheaton . A FINK bronze gobbler and four hen turkeys were the . foundation of our stock . In March a nest was discovered in an old fodder stack . Eggs accumulated until three hens that had nests in the hay loft were given sittings of nine eggs each . In . due time the twenty-seven eggs hatched within the same twenty-four hours , and the striped , downy ; turks were fed several days before leaving their warm bam home . The hens were then put into coops within a movable enclosure , so that the little ones might have freedom without wandering too far from brooding wings into the dewy grass . Their earliest food was a mixture of oat and corn meal , scalded with hot water , and cooled with curd . A few weeks , and the raw meal was mixed with skimmed or sour milk . The hens weaned them in about six weeks , and they cuddled together with a fatherly rooster under a shed at night , un . til their wings fledged but so that they could join turke...

Poultry for the Chicago Market [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
Poultry for the Chicago Market By P . H . Sprague , President Sprague Commission Co ., Chicago , Illinois . NO reliable estimate can * be given- of the value of poultry , raised in tbe United States , but it reaches into the millions . Much could be done on the part of those who raise poultry and the shippers &gt; of it to increase the annual income from this crop if more care were taken in the selection of . varieties best suited for market use and the feeding and housing of the . same ; but the-general farmer gives little . atfention to his poultry ; that is a side issue with him and not given much consideration by the majority / Again , when the poultry reaches the dresser like carelessness , if not ignorance , is shown in the matter of handling , for market . so that , taken all around , there are many half cents and cents per pound lost whicli would add greatly to the value of the crop MOST SUITABLE FOR MARKET . THE best kinds of chickens for market are those withyellow...

Goose Breeding : [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
Goose Breeding : ( Continued from page 145 . ) - barrels or tubs , where they are hot able to get out . 7 \ . ¦ ; . . . . 7 . 7 If possible , they should have opportunity to roam in the pasture or field , so as to get some exercise , and , as the season advances , pick up some grass and green , food . This exercise helps not only to stimulate the egg production , but a larger , proportion of the eggs are more likely , to be fertile . • A goose usually covers her eggs whenever possible , and they ; will be found buried in the straw in the .. nests ; - When , geese are laying in cold weaither , the eggs should be gathered frequently to guard against their becoming chilled ; as they frequently lay during the night , it is almost impossible to prevent some from getting too cold . Where more than one colony is kept , they may be located a little distance apart , and each colony should be fed on its own grounds and taught to recognize that spot as its home . The ganders may occasionally m...

~ . . T ^ : — . Our Prize Poultry House A SHORT time ago we offered a fivedollar bone mill for the best plan of a house and yard for 200 chickens and a years subscription to National Rural for the second best . More than a score of plans were sent in , arid it was a hare matter to decide which was the best . In making the decision we considered a few points : Proper size , simplicity of construction as regards nests , perches , utilizing space and ease with which the premises may be kept clean . Some excelled in one point , others ; in another . Between the first , which we publish herewith , sent in by R . S . Elliott , Westp ort , S . Dakota , and the second ,. sent in by A . J . Havens , Lewis Center , Ohio , we gave the preference to Mr . Elliotts plan because of the reversible nests .. We shall publish in the near future the . plan sent in by Mr . Hay ens and maybe one or two others . We are pleased that so many of our readers have such well arranged and convenient poultry hous...

Poultry Raising on the Farm [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 2 February 1899
Poultry Raising on the Farm By . Lillian E . Ballon . WE believe the demand for fresh . eggs and . toothsome chickens ¦ was never greater , than now ; and poultry raising on farms should be a main source of supply . During the past four years we have supplied private customers with both eggs and chickens ; -from pur farm at : prices which , considerably in ; advance , of the market , were cheerfully paid for eggs guaranteed to be daily gathered , and delivered in : less than seven days after laid ; and for chicks properly fattened and neatly dressed and packed . From March 1 st to October 1 st we received fifteen cents per dozen for eggs . Prom October 1 st to March 1 st twenty-five cents . For chickens we ( have ) received from ten to twenty-five cents per pound . Hens , ten to fourteen cents . From a flock of 100 Plymouth Rock hens we have netted something more than $ 100 yearly , besides the eggs and chickens freely used in our large family . During the summer of 1898 , if we had...
