Sheep on the Shares . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
Sheep on the Shares . We are asked now and then as to the propriety of putting out sheep on the shares . We began .. eeping cheep on ihe shares , giving half of the wool and half the Increase . We would like very much to put out sheep in that way to the right kind of men , but we would not advise any of them to take them . If they are the right kind of men , they can do a great deal better by buying the sheep at present prices and thus taking to themselves all the profit If a man can buy a flock ol twenty-five or fifty sheep at their value , or ten per cent above their present value , on a year s time without interest , he can pay his note easier than any sale note we know ol and have a start in sheep . II he fails to study the sheep and think about it , he will not have , alter paying his note , the same number ol sheep left but he will have bad luck , indeed , it he is not able to pay off his note and pay himself for all the feed and trouble that the sheep have given him .
Ewes and Strange Lambs . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
Ewes and Strange Lambs . Mr McCann , a prominent shepherd ol West Virglna , gives the following directions as to how a ewe can be made to own her lamb : To make a ewe own a lamb not her own , shut her up with it In a dark stall , and compel her to let it suck until its discharges come from her own milk ; smear the lamb s rump with these and she will love it This will no doubt work with a ewe that has plenty of milk , but our observation is that a ewe that Is short in natural affection ia also short in milk In fact , we do not blame them very much .
The Evils of an ail Grain Ro -tation . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
The Evils of an ail Grain Rotation . Our readers understand that when land is first broken up from the prairie or the timber it produces flne crops ol small grain for a number ol years . The universal experience in all countries is that when tnese lands are larmed for a number of years they fail to grow spring wheat profitably , hence the spring wheat region is constantly moving west and northwest This failure is generally attributed to a change of climate or to the exhaustion of some element of fertility in the soil . Since the establishment of the weather bureau , farmers are learning that while the climate changes Irom year to year , iu a series ol ten or twenty years , the mean , whether ol moisture or temperature , is practically the same , hence it is not the change ol climate that leads to the failure ol the wheat crop . This , however , finds confirmation strong as prool from Holy Writ from the fact that these same lands when subject to a rotation with clover as a basis and ...
Changes in the Agnculai . al Society . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
Changes in the Agnculai . al Society . The appointment ot Mr . John Cownie on the board ol control has necessitated his resignation as president of the Agricultural Society . His resignation has been accepted and Mr . W . F . Harriman has been appointed president ; Mr . R . J . Johnston , of Humboldt , vice-president , to fill the place of Mr . Harriman ; and Mr . G . A . Johnson , of Maquoketa , director , to fl I the vacancy occasioned by the election of Mi . R . J . Johnston to the vice-presidency . The General Assembly , in its closing hours , enacted a law which has long been needed , namely , requiring the election of the secretary and treasurer by the board of directors instead of by the representatives of the county agricultural societies . This is in line Willi the suggestion made some time since by Wallaces Farmer and is essential to the welfare and prosperity of the Association . So long as the secretary , no matter who he may be , is elected by the representatives of the...
The Maize Propaganda . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
The Maize Propaganda . We called the attention of our readers some time since to the organization lor opening the markets lor corn in European countries . The following , taken Irom the Scottish Farmer , gives the foreigners views as to the benefits accruing to them and to us Irom this movement : The Indian com propaganda , organized recently in Chicago , is not being received with that lavor even in America that its promoters wished or expected . It is generally felt that those who have been most eager to push the matter have got an axe to grind , and they want the United States Government to find the grindstone , and pay for turning it There is something of the principle of volunteering-to-teach-your-granny-how-to-boil -eggs in the Americans proposing to come and teach Europeans how to cook . Well , as they are going to pay their own expenses , or get their Government to pay them il they can , we need not mind the harmless invasion . The core of the movement lies in the tact that ...

The Cattle Feeding Problem . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
The Cattle Feeding Problem . It is a fact well known to all intelligent men that the farmers of the Old World , of Canada , and of the Eastern states , manage to fatten their cattle on a great deal less grain than we are accustomed to use in the West . It seems incredible to them that a steer weighing a thousand pounds will consume and apparently relish from 18 to 28 pounds of shelled corn per day and a moderate amount of roughness besides . They lift up their hands in surprise and exclaim : What wasteful , poor farmers these Western fellows are , anyhow ! • * • The reason they think so is because they are not able to put themselves in the Western farmers situation and realize tne cheapness of corn , the high price of labor , and the use of the hog as a scavenger . Under ordinal y conditions these three Items justify the wisdom of the Western farmer in feeding his cattle from a third to a half a bushel of corn per day in fodder or snapped corn with plenty of hogs to follow . « » « N...
The First Crop Report . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
The First Crop Report . The Weather and Crop Service has issued the first crop report of the season , of winch we give the following summary : The season opened early , and has been unusually favorable for farming operations and seeding ; but cool , dry winds , with freezing weather at night , have retarded the germination of seed and the growth of vegetation . A much larger area than usual has been planted in spring wheat in the northern and central districts , with the soil in fine conditions , and it appears to be uninjured by the low temperature . The seeding of oats and barley is nearly completed , except in the extreme north and in the eastern counties , where work has been delayed by excessive moisture . Reports from numerous localities indicate that some fields of early sown oats have suffered damage by freezing , and re-seeding has been necessary . The extent of damage , however , is not large . More than the usual amount of grass seeding is being done , especially in the c...

Our Front Page Illustration . The front pafie of Wallaces Farmer this week Is graced by a pood likeness of the Short-horn bull . Peculated Wild Eyes 109348 . one of the chief bulls In service In the Enterprise herd of C C . Bigler , of Hartwlck . Iowa . This bull will be remembered as the one which did such good service In the herd of Elbert &amp; Fall , of Albla , Iowa , from whom he was purchased by Mr Bigler . Peculated Wild Eyes was bred by the late Col . H . M . Vaile . and his pedigree represents the very choicest of Bates blood . He was got by Winsome Duke 3 d ( a son and grand-son of the -3 . 000 31 st Duke of Alrdrie . and his dam was- Wild Eyes 46 th . by Winsome Duke 3 d ) . This concentration of the highest type of Bates blood has manifested Itself , not only In the individual , but In the individual s power to transmit and reproduce the points that have made his ancestors such potent factors in the upbuilding of the Short-horn breed . For Instance , at the 1896 ...
Legal Tender Seed Corn . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
Legal Tender Seed Corn . The lUustratlon on this page will give readers of Wallaces Farmer a good Idea of both the form of the ear and the depth of the kernel of the well-known Legal Tender seed corn , as grown by Nims Bros . Emerson . Iowa . This corn has stood the tests of time and the longer lt Is known and grown the more popular lt seems to become . It has been grown by the side of other varieties at different experiment stations , notably at the Illinois station at Champaign . In bulletin 42 of that station Legal Tender , grown from seed purchased of Nims Bros . yielded eighty bushels of shelled , air dry corn to the acre grown In 1895 . while the average yield per acre for six years was 59 . 5 bushels . In 1896 the yield of Legal Tender at the same station is reported ( bulletin 46 ) as 96 bushels per acre Legal Tender Is , beyond question , a valuable variety and one well adapted to Iowa and adjoining state , although it should not be * taken to the north and expected to Eet ...

Road Making . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
Road Making . As noted In the Farmer a couple ot weeks ago , the law requires threefourths of the road tax to be worked out hereafter before the 15 th of July , which practically means that it must be worked out in May and June , as after that the farmer has no time . Good roads are essential to the comfort and the prosperity of the farmer in every section of the state . They are the arteries , the highways of farm traffic . It is important to every one that these roads shall be in such condition that they can be traveled safely , day or night , from January to January . There is no use , in the greater portion of Iowa and adjoining states , talking about macadamized roads or brick roads . The material for the first is not available , and the expense of the latter if far beyond anything within reach of the farm . We must , therefore , satisfy ourselves with dirt roads , the best of all roads , after all , the greater portion of the year , when properly constructed . Bad roads , in t...
A Critical Time on tho Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 15 April 1898
A Critical Time on tho Farm . The next month or two will be a critical time on the farm . The preparation of the seed bed for corn and the securing of a stand will have a very important bearing on the profits of the year , but not less important , and requiring even more thoughtful care and attention , will be getting the young things started that are to consume this crop when it is grown . The calves , the pigs , the lambs , and the colts are coming , and if these are not started right , they will never be profitable animals . A sickly or stunted calf never makes a profitable steer . A colt , that through neglect get started wrong , will never pay for his keep . A little lack of care will make the young pig s life a very short one . The same may be said of the lamb . Hence , it is fully as important , even more so , to get these young things on the right track , started off into vigorous life , than to get the seed bed for corn properly prepared . The hired hand or the fanners hoy ...
