Concrete End Posts Are Most Durable [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 2 October 1929
Concrete End Posts Are Most Durable Concrete end posts are more durable than wooden posts , . be &gt; cause they are affected neither by not nor fire as are wood posts . The estimated life of concreteend posts is about twice that of wood posts . The appearance of the post depends upon the ingenuity used in making the forms . The important thing in any end post is that it shall stay in place and prevent the fence from becoming loose . This property in any post depends upon the bracing . The bracing of a concrete post can be done as effectually as in wood posts . In addition , the concrete post has greated weight and can be so made that the heaving action of frost has no effect . Concrete is strong in compression and weak in tension . By the use of reinforcing the steel takes care of the tension . The important thing in end posts of concrete is the correct location of sufficient , reinforcing and the use of good materials to make a strong concrete . Reinforcing in end posts sh...

TORWT POULTRY ¦ »«¦¦ ¦ i I ...-1 n . i , i i . i i .- i i . FLOCK HISTORY IS GUIDE IN CULLING Always Better to Improve Production by Care . In culling poultry the history of the flock should be the first important consideration , say the extension specialists , in poultry husbandry at the Ohio State university . If the flock as a whole has been laying heavily throughout the entire year , culling should be comparatively easy , as the good birds will show evidence of high production , while the few poor birds will be outstanding , showing very definite evidences of low production or none . If the flock has laid indifferently throughout the year , or has suffered from parasites sucli as red mites , lice , or intestinal worms , or is improperly hciiseo or cared for , the culling will bi very difficult , for many of the birds that are really worth keeping will be questionable , due to their condition . Under such circumstances the first step should be to correct conditions , and allow th...

This means that they are in poor condition at the close of the lactation period . Practical dairymen are agreed that such cows must have form six to eight weeks of rest following each lactation if they are to produce large quantities of milk year after yen * The feeding of such cows during the dry period should he such as to enable them to regain the losses sustained in the previous lactation and before . the onset of the demands of . the succeeding lactation . The same principle of management is recommended for cows not capable of producing a...

Replace Broken Windows Before Blustery Season Before the blustery weather and fall rains set in all broken windows in the cow stable should be replaced . . A little time and a trifling outlay for glass and putty may be the means of preventing an outbreak of garget , in the herd during the winter . Inflammation in the udder is often caused by exposure to drafts . This may develop and encourage garget , a contagious disease which , if ¦ not checked , may spread to other members of-the herd , cutting milk production sharply . It may also cause the loss of quarters of , udders which become badly infected . Two or three years ago I visited a herd where a splendid cow was suffering from garget . Her stall was located near a window and a few days before . she freshened one of the window panes had been broken . A cold east wind blew , in on the cow all night with the result that a little swelling developed in the udder and some -thick milk came from two quarters a few days later . Garget se...
