TH ^ -JE & M D ATOY- [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915
TH ^ -JE &amp; M D ATOY- Cow Testing Associations There is no doubt but that numerous cow testing associations formed by dairymen in various parts of the country are of great benefit to the industry . Of course , this co-operative work is more or less a new departure . The benefits to be derived from such associations are manifold . The co-operative cow testing associations are founded on the principle that a number of dairymen who are situated near each other can organize and employ a man to do their testing cheaper and more satisfactory than they can do it themselves . The most convenient association to operate is one formed of 26 members . This number permits the tester to spend one day each month at each place without having to work on Sundays and holidays . In some associations the tester furnishes his own horse and buggy and drives from place to place ; in others , each farmer takes him to the next testing place . The tester , supplied with an outfit , arrives at the h...

( EXPERIMENT STATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915
( EXPERIMENT STATIONS \ Reports from the ybnim Fertilizing With Ashes and Hen Manure One of the most popular questions , according to the Ohio Experimental Station , is how to use ashes and hen manure to the best advantage as a fertilizer . Many persons who use ashes and lien manure make the mistake of mixing lime . The lime will cause a liberation of a considerable part of the nitrogen in the manure , and will escape as ammonia gas . Unleached hardwood ashes should contain about S or 6 per cent of potash with 1 per cent of phosphoric acid . Potash seldom produces its full effect unless used in connection with more phosphorus than is contained in ashes . Ashes should be mixed with such such carriers of phosphorus as acid phosphate or steamed bonemeal , 250 pounds of unleached ashes and 180 pounds of 16 per cent acid phosphate would carry as many pounds of phosphoric acid and potash as would be found in 300 pounds of a 10-4 fertilizer . Ashes are about one-third lime , and the additi...

POULTS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 June 1915
POULTS jfabiag the Hen Productive Past experiments have long ago derided that the hen should average from JS to 180 eggs per year . In other words produce sue times her own eight annually . . The average is , howl er the exception to , the rule . The Ihortage in production is most probably L to the fact that the majority of Hocks are left to literally scratch for hemselves . At least , insufficient attenion is paid to the feeding of flocks . The hen has to produce food and also fulfill the function of reproduction almost every day in the year . To do this it is essential that the feeding of the flock should be reduced to a science and that the poultryman be familiar with food values and the balancing of rations . There is no one best method of feeding hens to produce eggs , but there are a few fundamental principles that must be followed , no matter what method is used . Hens must have congenial surroundings to respond readily to scientific methods of feeding ; in other words , they...
