THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

THE SHEAF HON . J . J . WOODMAN , Master of the National Grange , Patrons of Husbandry , is now in New England , addressing tbe people and attending to the business of the Grange . Mr . Woodman , is a citizen of Michigan . ON the 24-27 th of this month the farmers will have a grand pic-nic at Miller s Grove , in the Cumberland valley , Pa . Last year 20 , 000 people were present on a similar occasion . It is believed that the number will be much larger this year . SOME experiments recently conducted in the French Academy by Mr . Panch , have revealed the dangerous consequences of tuberculosis , a disease which , at times , is prevalent among cattle , and which many animals have been found to be suffering from when slaughtered for food . The milk of cows so affected is a ready vehicle for the communication of the disease . In the experiments alluded to three rabbits were fed with milk irom cows so diseased . One of the rabbits died and the other was killed ; both of them showed tuber...

AGRICULTURAL FARMING AND FRUIT 6 R 0 WIN 6 IN CANADA . The FARMERS REVIEW has many readers in the Dominion of Canada who will will be particularly interested in what we print below , and we believe all our subscribers will be glad of the information imparted regarding our neighbors over the border . The Ontario Agricultural Commission has been prosecuting an investigation into the progress of Agriculture . They adopted the method of calling witnesses and questioning them regarding farm and orchard work . Mr . Edwin Cady of Kingsville , Ontario , was called : He said : I am a pruner and grafter . About ten per cent , of all our fruit trees are apples . Apples bear in ten years after plantioe ^ mm the nursery and about fourteen ye _ H ^ lter budding . We ship about 10 , 000 barrels from the South Riding . About three-fourths of our apples are of the Winter varieties . Apple trees should not be planted too close , as sun and air are very influential . Plant from 35 to 40 feet . We have...

THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

THE APIARY BEST MODE OF INCREASING SWARMS . President L . C . Root , of the Northeastern Beekeepers Association , Iowa , says : There are many beekeepers who disprove of any mode of handling bees that checks or controls their natural tendencies . Consequently they favor natural swarming . Now , I desire to say that unrestricted natural swarming is the most unprofitable system of increase that can be practised—in fact , I know of no one thing which is practiced to any extent that is so thoroughly undesirable and so far behind the times . Even the box hive and brimstone pit do not prove their advocate so unwise as are those who allow this mode of swarming . Those using the box hive might ) control swarming to the extent that sufficient honey would be secured to warrant the application of the brimstone match . A little over one year ago I suggested this motto : Keep each colony supplied with a laying queen at all times . Now I desire to make a strong assertion , and I ask beekeepers to...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

THE DAIRY . THICKENED SKIMMED MILK FOR CALVES . The natural milk of the cow is , of course , the best food tor the young calf during the first few months after birth , but the use of the whole milk for this purpose is not economical , and it is not good practice ; cream is too valuable to be fed to calves , since substitutes can he found to take its place . With respect to such substitutes the farmer may be placed in one of three positions : if he makes butter for sale , he has an abundance of skim milk ; if he sends milk to the cheese factory he can get whey for the trouble of carrying it home ; or he may sell milk outri g ht , and retain or recover no portion of it . With sufficient skim milk the problem of raising the calves is a very simple one . Good animals have been raised on this alone , beginning with it on the fourth day , and at four weeks old giving also a little cut feed composed ot good hay and a mixture of Indian meal , oatmeal , bran and cottonseed meal . Recent numb...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO 26 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS-NO 26 HOLSTEIN OR DUTCH CATTLE . Within the last few years several hundreds of large black and white cattle have been imported to the United States from Holland , and have gained a fine reputation among farmers , especially dairy farmers , in portions of New York , Pennsylvania , Illinois and , to a less extent , in several other States . Dutch cattle were imported into New York in the early settlement of the country , and at different times in the early part of this century . These were not uniform in quality , but , as a class , were good dairy cows . At different times between 1852 and 1861 Mr . W . Chenery , of Boston , Mass ., made several importations from the north of Holland , giving them the name Holstein . The pleuro-pneumonia appeared in this herd about 1860 , and it was practically destroyed ; the importation of 1861 re-established it . There has been much controversy as to the appropriateness of the name Holstein . Few , if any , cattle have been i...

THE PREPARATION OF FOOD FOR ANIMALS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

THE PREPARATION OF FOOD FOR ANIMALS . Apart from the nutritive qualities of food , much difference of opinion still exists as to the manner in which the food ought to be given ; whether sliced , chopped , bruised or crushed , or prepared by cooking , steeping or fermentation . As many practices , as many opinions . M . Jean Kiener , a Frenchman , is an authority—scientific as well as practical—on these subjects , and for twelve years has studied and experimented in regard to them . He does not like cut hay for horses ; true , they will in this state consume their feed of hay in one half the time , but if their excrements be examined , the particles of hay will be found in their natural length and thickness , unaffected by the process of digestion ; the mastication and the salivation of the food were incomplete , and the horse in addition will absorb a great quantity of water , to make good that furnished in lesser volume pending a deglutition ot double rapidity . Horses then , that ...

QUERIES AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

QUERIES AND ANSWERS QUERY : WHAT CAUSED THE DEATH OP THE COLT . —D . C . K , Dansville , N . Y ., says : I see that all subscribers have the privilege of consulting your Veterinary Department , which is the most valuable part of the paper . My sucking colt had a burst between its legs when born . We turned it , along with the mare , on pasture with three head of horses ; one of the horses bit the colt in two places on the hip and side . The bite on the ribs made a bunch as big as a cocoanut ; the one on the hip as large as a hen s egg . The treatment I adopted soon caused the wounds to heal , and I thought every thing was getting along all rfght until a few days ago , when I noticed the colt lying down often , and when helped on his feet he seemed weak and hardly able to walk , and as it would not take any nourishment we gave it some condition powders and then some laudanum , and it died in a few minutes afterwards . The next morning we opened it and about four quarts of bloody wate...

THE POULTRY YARD [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 August 1880

THE POULTRY YARD CHAT WITH CORRESPONDENTS . A subscriber asks if his barn cellar , which he describes having at the top only narrow windows a foot high , would be a good place for fowls . No , no . That is unless they have another indoor apartment to stay in part of the time . Light , and that , too , the direct light of the sun , is absolutely necessary . Every animal is in a sense partly vegetable in constitution , and if you want to know how the want of sunlight will affect it , look at the pale potato sprouts in your cellar . If possible , have no nooks and corners that can not get an occasional sun-bath . Aud yet , this is a good thing of which it is possible to have too much . Fowls need considerable shade , and a cool place is very desirable , especially at noon on Summer days in the hottest weather . Another correspondent asks if roup is contageous . Yes , ; if the matter discharged from the beak of a sick fowl comes in contact , at a certain stage of the disease , with the ...
