Feeding Growing Pigs . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 May 1886
Feeding Growing Pigs . The hog has usually been fed as if he were capable of digesting all that could be crammed into his stomach , and he has been treated as if he were as . hardy as a wild boar , and could endure extremes of heat , cold , filth and neglect . Now . the hog can only digest a certain amount of food within a given time , and when he has eaten too much he suffers in consequence , and especially if the food is of a kind not adapted to his requirement . His digestive organs can be disarranged as easily as can those of the horse , and filth taken into the system will cause him to become diseased the same as is peculiar to humans . The accepted theory regarding cholera now is that it is a form of typhoid fever , and if this is true there is but one conclusion to arrive at , which is that filth is at the bottom of the difficulty . The eating of filth is bad enough , but the drinking of filthy water is worse , as the animal is then thirsty , and the filth , being in a solubl...

A Dairyman by Proxy . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 May 1886
A Dairyman by Proxy . The so-called humorist , who runs Hoard s Dairyman , and also as alleged , im annual convention , extracts an article from the FABM , FIELD AND STOCKMAN relating to the dairy cow which he does not object to , neither do we , but there is extracted an alleged paragraph from . mother article which we have not been able to find , but which is practical in ihe lines in which it was written , and is M follows : The large majority of farmers cannot afford to keep a cow for the milk alone ; they want to raise the male calves for feeding steers , and a cow that will raise a large calf is more valuable to them than one that will make a large amount of butter . We think this will suit the average former first rate . They do want calves that will grow into something besides runty skim milk steers , and the average dairyman who does not look through the eyes of a convention President , will also think so . But this hoard-ed concentration of what some other fellow knows abo...

The Eggs Must be Made . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 May 1886
The Eggs Must be Made . The hen involuntarily produces the egg from the materials consumed , but nearly the whole egg is composed of water . That is , if an egg be burned to ashes , the water and volatile matter will-escape aud leave but a small amount of mineral matter . But there are other substances than mineral matter , for although the white of an egg contains over 84 per cent of water , there is also 12 per cent of albumen , which must be made only of substances in which albumen is contained . To feed a hen well , and yet allow her no food containing albumen , is to deprive her of the power of producing an egg . This albumen is derived principally from meat , milk and the gluten of grains , while the large amount of water in the egg indicates that it must be supplied liberally . The yolk also contains a large amount of casein and albumen , but the fat and oil in the yolk amounts to about 30 per cent . Corn is the best substance for producing the yolk , but as nearly all feedin...
APIARY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 1 May 1886
APIARY . The Profit from Each Hive . As to how much honey may be expected from each hive no one can give a correct answer . A swarm may store a large supply one season and fall short the next . The temperature of the atmosphere , the duration of the winter , the length of the following season , and the number and kind of plants within their reach affect the result . Then , again , something depends upon how much the bees are assisted . By supplying artificial comb , and arranging the hives so as to permit the colony to have plenty of cells to fill , as well as keep up their numbers , they will perform a greater amount of work . Bee-keeping is a science , and he who engages in the business should make himself familiar not only with the habits of the bees but also with the condition of the colonies at all periods of the year , as well as with the plants upon which the bees work . By strict attention to his duties a New York bee-keeper succeeded in netting $ 20 per hive from his bees f...
