Ai ^^ jto ^^ -PM [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915

Ai ^^ jto ^^ -PM jprug Plants Not Usually Profitable The Department of Agriculture has issued a bulletin No . 663 , Drug Plants Under Cultivation , that helps dissipate a rather common impression that the cultivation of drug plants is highly profitable . Drug plants are subject to the same diseases and risks as other crops and , in addition , there seems to be less knowledge of cultivation and handling than in the case of the other and better known crops . The demand for drug plants is limited and prospective growers are advised to acquaint themselves with market conditions before investing any considerable sum of money in the cultivation of drug plants . Harvest Mites or Chiggers Those microscopic harvest mites known as chiggers and red bugs , attack the skin of the human being , entering the sweat pores where they die , and cause much suffering from intense itchings . Chiggers are most troublesome to people with tender skins and especially to children . The irritation and inflamma...

lEXPfflMENT STATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915

lEXPfflMENT STATIONS Reports from the , FmmnLafnmto ^ When to Make Hay According to the North Dakota Experiment Station there is a best time for cutting the crop to secure the best results . Alfalfa , for instance , should be cut when it is coming into blossom , or better yet , watch for the new shoots coming up from the crowns . These are the new crop coming on , and the alfalfa should be cut before these shoots are long enough to be cut off by the mower . Clover should be cut when in full bloom , or when the first blossoms are beginning to turn brown . Cut timothy when blooming or soon after . Rye or wheat grass needs to be cut early , a little before blooming , as otherwise it becomes woody . Brome grass can be cut at blooming . It is often left until the seed is ripe . Cut it high for the seed as the seed stems extend above the leafy part , and then cut the rest in the usual way for hay . This does not make as satisfactory hay as when cut earlier . The point to remember in gener...

Tr- __ WE > 2 E-MDATCTV- [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915

Tr- __ WE > 2 E-MDATCTV- Producing Cream to Make Good Butter The farmer holds the key to the quality of the butter manufactured and the price received for same . The market price of butter is governed primarily by its quality . Good butter which brings top market prices can be made only from good cream and the quality of cream in turn is controlled by the care it receives on the farm . Under present market conditions the quality of butter affects its price more than ever before , the difference in price between first grade and second grade butter is very great . This is due largely to the increase of imports of foreign butter , made possible by the reduced tariff . In order to successfully meet this competition with foreign butter and to preserve American markets for American butter , better butter must be produced , at least equal in quality to that nf imported butter . The dairy farmer is the controlling power which determines the destiny of the dairy industry . The car...

POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915

POULTRY Saving the Lives of Hens and Chicks Lice , mites and fleas are more disastrous to poultry stock than all the host of diseases that chicken flesh is heir to . The best treatment for lice is to grease fowls with 33 per cent strength mercurial ointment ( which is poison ) . Apply a piece of ointment the size of a grain of wheat to the flesh of the hen at the rear part of the body , covering a space of skin not larger than a silver quarter . Be careful not to use too much ointment , because if applied too freely the mercury will be absorbed by the chicken s system and egg production will cease . For baby chicks that have head lice , annoint the head with carbolated vaseline or apply the mercurial ointment very sparingly . A little grease rubbed on the chick s head and under the beak will kill all lice lodging there and prevent development of the lice eggs . One application of the poisonous grease is good for a month and is better than dusting with insect powder . Mites live in c...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 July 1915

European War Means Money to Horse Breeders It s an ill wind that blows no good . In the opinion of many leading horse specialists the American horse breeder is due to experience many profitable years of business as a result of the wholesale slaughter of horses in Europe . It is estimated by English army officials that the horse has a life of ten days at the front . Of course , that is an average , but it does not alter the fact that up to the present time thousands of horses have been slain and thousands more will be slain before the warring nations call a halt . Europe will turn to America for its horses . Already horse breeders in this country have shipped many thousands of animals abroad . Agents representing many European armies are in this country buying horseflesh . The war has made a big inroad upon the horse industry in the old world . Belgium , the father of the great Belgian breed of horses , has suffered a blow in the extinction of that breed from which it will never reco...
