IRRIGATION Careful Use of Irrigation Water. In these times when gigantic reser voirs and canals are being planned and constructed by our great govern ment, we are likely to forget that the development of irrigation in this country lies not alone along engineering lines, but depends, to an equal or greater degree, upon the manner in which the farmer uses the water in the production of his crops. The building of canals and reservoirs has been greatly improved during the last fifty years. All the skill of the en gineer has been bent to produce irri gation structures that approach per fection. Meanwhile, the farmer has been left to develop his methods, un aided by expert advice or assistance; and, in fact, the methods employed by the farmer today in producing cropr, by irrigation are very little in ad vance of those that were introduced during the first few years after the Mormons entered the Salt Lake Valley. The projected storage of the wato/s which now run to waste in the streams and...

LIVE STOCK BEEF PRODUCTION. Considerations .In Buying Feeding Cattle. (Copyright, 1906, by H. W- Mum ford.) There is always that first consid eration as to whether or not the farm er should buy cattle to feed at all or not This is a very important ques tion and the correct answer to it de pends upon so many factors that it will seldom be answered twice alike. One thing is certain: It is always wise to be conservative in consider ing cattle feeding propositions. In general it would seem good practice not to buy cattle to feed unless the larger part of the corn and roughage necessary for finishing are available from products grown on the farm. Profits in cattle feeding, while not al ways denied to the man who is oblig ed to purchase corn, other concen trates and roughages, are necessarily smaller than to the feeder who pro duces his feeds, provided of course, the same methods and intelligence obtain in each instnace. This is the chief advantage of the corn belt cattle feeder over his ...

Light, thin lambs cannot be fat tened sufficiently in three months to command the best price in the mar ket. 7. In one experiment in feeding 100 wethers for 65 days, 50 wethers, fed a maximum ration of one-half pound of grain a day, gained as rapidly and made as economic gains as a band of healthy wethers. Being small and thin, however, they would have to be fed at least twice as long to get them to market. Keeping Records of Ewes. Ewes are of little value unless they can make profitable returns for the owner. Many ewes cost from $2 to $5 annually, and to give profitable re turns they msut be able to yield a heavy fleece of a No. 1 quality of wool and one or two growthy lambs. There are very few ewes that have such records, and consequently the real profits from sheep in many flocks are not as high as desired. The only way to select profitable ewes is by keeping records through out t...

on the Crow Indian reservation aad buys surplus hay from the Indians. About thirty thousand of his sheep are on this reservation. Owing to Mr. Baer's constant and careful at tention his sheep generally come through the winter in good condition, and never yet in all his years in the range business has one of his herders lost his life in a blizzard. With spank ing fine teams at many stations near his grazing country, which can make a hundred miles a day, he is out with his men roughing it as only a Wes tern stockman can. If overtaken by nightfall far from camp, blankets and feed for himself and horse, a good warm fur coat and arctics, with the clear cold heavens for a tent, make him quite as comfortable as else where.

THE RANCH . VOL. XXIV. No. 6. Composition of the Clay Soils By M. 6. Ghambarlaln. IT has been iterated and reiterated in this publication that tit farm er today mut be thoroughly la miliar with the nature of the soil with which he has to deal in his operations. Every man who has some intelligence knows that upon the fertility of the soil depends the material prosperity of the nation, because it is from the soil that man must obtain, primarily, aia food, clothing and shelter. The day of hap hazard farming has imUt be.n i>*st, and we have with us now a day, ir which science has become the bervant of tne tiller of the soil. In many sections, especially In the older agrloultural reg ions, the virgin fertility of the soil has been exhausted by long and con tinued cropping and the failure to pui back on the land the elements of ferti lity that have been taken away. This condition calls for aggressive methods of artificial fertilising to restore the missing elements and to keep the soil...

2 Building Up Worn-Out lands (L- L. Brooks) I wish to urge the people to go to raising clover, because I know it is much better than grain farming. It builds up the soil at the same time the land is increasing in value every year by raising the legumes, such as red clover, Alsike, alfalfa, crimson, clover, vetches and peas. All of these plants feed from the air, taking the nitrogen from the air and storing it up in those little noddles on the roots caled becteria. When the plant has all it can use itself it stores it up to be used on the crop that is raised next year. Land can be built up in this way by plowing under clover and vetches till the land will produce as good a crop as the first year it was broken up. The quickest way to build up old wheat land is to sow 100 pounds of vetch to the acre, disk, it in a stubble field in September. Sow it in a field by its self.shut the gate and lock it and throw the key in the river. Let that grow all fall and winter and let it go to seed th...

4 The Use of Commercial Fertilisers. In a recent bulletin of the New Hampshire station, F. W. Morse thus briefly sets forth certain important facts which should always be clearly kept in mind in using fertilizers: It should always be borne in mind that the success of a crop depends on four other conditions besides that of the fertilizer used to feed it. All farm crops require certain average amounts of heat, light, air and water in order to develop an average growth, and just the right amount of each for the largest possible yield. Thus weather conditions may favor or hinder a crop to such an extent that the fertilizer has ap parently no effect, and these facts have led more than one to the conclusion V~ at fertilizers were useless. . . Fertiliz ers can not make good a lack of sun shine or rain, but they can help the sunshine and rain to do their best; there fore when the weather is favorable they increase the profits and when it is un favorable they lessen the losses. The condition...

How to Fertilize Every farmer knows that plants need food as much as cattle. He knows that plants cannot get all the food they need out of the ground alone. He must suppl/ them with certain foods himself, or they will not thrive or bear their full yield of fruit. Exactly as he supplies hay and oats to his horse so he must supply nitro gen and phosphate to his plants. He may buy these in the open market exactly as he does his hay or his oats, or he can buy them in combi nation in the form of a "complete fer tilizer." There is no secret value in the complete fertilizer, it is nothing more nor less than the ingredients combined and sold at a higher price Nitrogen is by far the most expen sive of plant foods, and it will pay the farmer well to stop and think before he buys it in this combination form. The Best and Cheapest Ammoniate The cheapest and most practical form in which to furnish nitrogen to plants is nitrate of soda. In the rainless region of Chili are stored away vast quantit...

HORTICULTURE ByF.WAIPEW — A good many fruit growers in the Pacific northwest remember with pleas ure Prof. S. W. Fletcher, who now fills the position of professor of horticul ture in the Michigan agricultural col lege. A few years ago he filled the position of professor of horticulture in the Washington agricultural college at Pullman. I know he was wel) liked. The death of his beloved wife caused him to resign and return east. He filled important positions in New York, and then was called to his present posi tion. A man could scarcely be more honored as a horticulturist than to be called to this great institution In the capacity of the professor of horticul ture. The editor of this department esteems it a favor to be reckoned a personal friend of Prof. Fletcher's. We have kept up more or less of a correspondence ever since he left Pull man. Three letters have been re ceived from him this winter. He is an indefatigable worker. very con scientious, and always tries to go to the botto...

10 Dairy Interests How to Improve Dairy Herd*. (H. B. Young.) How to improve our dairy herds is a big subject and I will only call atten tion to what I consider some of the most important things we should en deavor to do. First of all, as we all know, or at least have been told many times, the herd bull is half of the herd. So it goes without saying that the herd bull should be the very best we can procure If you have an inferior animal at the head of your herd, don't hesitate to sacrifice him at any price and procure at once a bull of merit. Get a good in divdiual, as nearly perfect a dairy type as possible, but not only this alone, but see that his sire is from a good, rich milking strain and that his dam and grand-dam both have a good record, and when you find what suits you, buy him at any price within your means. With a good bull at the head of your herd, commence weeding out the poor cows, and the best way to do It is to use the scales and test each cow's milk. It is a whole l...
