EDITORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
EDITORIAL Ideas , Devices and Methods Under this heading we purpose to establish a permanent department in The Berkshire World . Hundreds of valuable practical ideas are lying in selfish unuse on stock farms throughout the country . Dozens of effective methods for doing given things are unknown to more than a score of farmers in neighborhoods here and there . Plans for reaching profitable returns in various lines of stock farming and animal breeding are similarly limited in their application by a lack of publicity . We know that among our readers there are thousands of useful ideas , which would prove immensely helpful to others . We know also that hundreds of them could describe methods , devices and plans of their own which would make money for multitudes of their fellow farmers . We wish to assemble as many . of these ideas as possible each month in this journal for the benefit of its readers , and with this end in view we have decided to inaugurate a separate department to which...

Second Masterpiece 127900 . Sold by G . W . Berry &amp; Sons for $ 1000 . 00 to J . T . Bayer &amp; Sons , Kansas Breeders . The noted boar , Second Masterpiece , has been sold by his breeders , G . W . Berry &amp; Sons , of Topeka , Kansas , to J . T . Bayer &amp; Sons of Yates Center , Kansas , for $ 1000 . 00 , the record price paid by a Kansas breeder . Second Masterpiece was farrowed April 17 , 1909 , sired by Ideal Masterpiece a great prize winning son of Masterpiece 77000 and his dam is Royal Empress 150 th by Black Robinhood 66086 . It will be seen that Second Masterpiece is a grandson of both Masterpiece and Black Robinhood . It must be with considerable regret that Berry &amp; Sons part with Second Masterpiece , their only reason for doing so being that tne boar is closely related to all their breeding sows . Second Masterpiece is a boar of strong , distinctive type , being exceptionally wide and deep , with uncommon breadth of back ...
Feeding by the Dietrich Stand -ard . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
Feeding by the Dietrich Standard . Continuing with the report of the test where we left off last month—the close of the week of January 1 st . Their weight January 8 th was 240 pounds . Calculating the ration then for the week of January 8 th , the eighteenth week of their lives ; turning to the respective charts in Prof . Dietrich s book on Swine we find for each one hundred ( 100 ) pounds they will require 10 . 5 pounds water . 637 pounds protien and 2 . 4 pounds carbohydrates daily . Should say here , that Prof . Dietrich has informed me by letter , that pigs intended for breeding purposes should be fed . 1 poundless protein than those intended for pork , for which purpose the :.-charts in book were intended . Also-that the water requirement should decrease from 12 pounds at 8 weeks , to eight pounds at eight months instead of 4 pounds as required when feeding for market . Multiplying these quantities by the weight of pigs , 240 pounds , we find they will require 52 . 2 pound of ...
A Pleased Customer is the Best Advertisement . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
A Pleased Customer is the Best Advertisement . Nothing is more pleasing to Berkshire breeders than to receive letters from their customers stating that shipments are entirely satisfactory . If a breeder s business has a future , he must necessarily receive not a few such letters as the one printed below . We are led to believe that Penshurst Farm , Narberth , Pa ., often receive letters of this kind and we have pleasure in printing the following : Penshurst Farm , Narberth , Pa . Gentlemen—The sow , Artful Linda 5 th , shipped in fine shape . I am more than pleased with her . Please accept my thanks for sending such a good one . She certainly has improved right along since I first saw her up at Penshurst , and I am looking forward to her farrowing some grand champions , as long as she is bred to such a famous boar as Star s Royal Masterpiece 2 d . She looks in the pink of condition , as does all the stock I have ever received from you . And again the promptness with which you send o...
Warm Pens and Swill Makes the Young Pigs Grow . [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
Warm Pens and Swill Makes the Young Pigs Grow . As many Sows farrow pigs during the months of February and March , and as to the future of the pigs , much will depend on care and feed that the brood sows receive . Young pigs are tender and should be furnished a good warm pen , that is clean and sanitary to sleep in ; then again , during the cold mornings and evenings , the mother should be fed a warm feed as it will do much in the way of increasing the milk supply for the little fellows . It stands to reason that proper feeding and care of the mother and young pigs will mean the future for the young pig . We visit many farms , and find many of the breeders and farmers using the Rippley Combination Steam Cooker and Hog House heater , for the steaming of feed , heating water , and heating the hog pens . Breeders are loud in their praise of the Rippley Cooker , some of them claiming that their brood sows and young , pigs do at least 50 per cent better when they are fed warm swill durin...
Is It Surprising ? [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
Is It Surprising ? That for some time now it has been almost impossible to take up a farm or stock paper without reading that hog cholera , sheep scab , or some profit taking disease has broken out in a new locality , this too , even after repeated warnings from government officials , live stock inspectors , and the prominent writers of the day . Few farmers seem to realize the enormous amounts lost annually in this way , unless it should so happen that their immediate vicinity is being visited by something of this kind , even then they often fail to take the proper precaution , either trusting to luck that they will not be troubled , and if it does get them , think they must take what comes . In the case of cholera , a proven germ disease , the one logical treatment is disinfection before and not after it has the start . Using a good dip every few weeks will not only practically eliminate this danger from cholera , but will also keep the animals free from lice and ticks , prevent a...
We Are Advertised by Our Loving Friends . " [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
We Are Advertised by Our Loving Friends . The Berkshire World , Springfield , III . Gentlemen—On my return from the Berkshire Congress and Sale at Columbus , Ohio , I feel that I should say a few words to the Berkshire breeders of the impressions gathered . The trip was a pleasure from start to finish . I came in contact with men who were working together in a very harmonious manner , their chief aim being to devise means by which our great American people could be taught that the Berkshire hog is , what he is , the best hog on earth . The Berkshire Congress and Sale is a means of reaching the people with a view to help them . It is working in entire accord with the American Berkshire Association and is ready to carry out any plans that will advance the interest of the Berkshire hog . I was also impressed with the unselfish motives of the Editor of The Berkshire World . I feel that this organ should receive the most hearty support possible from every man who owns a Berkshire . I hav...
From An Old Breeder [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
From An Old Breeder BY GEO . W . BERRY , TOPEKA , KAN Why the Berkshire is Preferred Prejudice has been the cause of re tarding progress in civilization per haps more than any other cause . This Is true in religion and in politics and it is true ; in the improved breeds ; of . A live stock . Like . intolerance of sectarians in vthe dark ages , and tyranny jn -all ages , selfishness and prejudice in trades and ; pro fessions are among the meanest ; attributes to human nature . In no other occupation does selfishness or prejudice crop out plainer than in the common live stock breeder . The different breeds have their merits and some points of individual excellence . The improved breeds show what has been accomplished by intelligent men who have devoted their best efforts in life to improvement of farm animals . Any of the improved breeds are better than scrubs or grades , and wnoever fails to see any good in them occupies a very narrow position . In discussing the merits of our favori...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
REV . W . N . TOBIE A Right Start . Shakespeare wrote a play called All s Well That Ends Well . My observation is , however , that things- do not usually end well if they begin badly . What begins in a blunder usually ends in a botch . This applies to boy s 1 : and young men ; Boys who start out badly are likely to feel the effects of that bad start all their lives . I- , have known a large number of capable men who started out in business on a mistaken policy and have never beenrable to change their course . The kind of a start they made determined the whole direction of their business and moral lives . A brilliant lawyer whom I know , when he started out in his career , began by defending every law-breaker among the disreputable class who applied for his services . The result is that this talented lawyer s practice is still confined largely to the defense of saloon-keepers , negro brap shooters , gamblers ; murderers and the low criminal classes ; and he -is put in the unfortunate...
Arkansas to the Front [Newspaper Article] — Berkshire World and Cornbelt Stockman — 1 March 1911
Arkansas to the Front Some well posted people smile audibly when the statement Is made that thousands of acres of the most fertile agricultural land in America is found in Arkansas . This is a fact and perhaps no country has a greater future than Arkansas . This Is true of Berkshires as well as of general agriculture , and the state points with pride to a number of high class herds of Berkshires . Among the good ones is that of the Hamburg Live Stock Co ., G . P . George , prop ., Hamburg , Ark . Mr . George is a prominent attorney of Hamburg , Ark ., and breeds Berkshires because he believes in them .

Few Like Her On a recent visit to the farm of Mr . W . K . Pickens , Livingston , Ala ., we were greatly attracted to a magnificent yearling sow by Livingston Masterpiece out of a daughter of Baron Premier 8 th . Grand Champion boar at the Illinois State Fair in 1907 . We have seen few sows of the eaual of this sow , and learn from a letter Just received from E . J . Blow &amp; Son , Teddy , Ala , that these gentlemen have purchased this good sow from Mr . Pickens , and she will be placed in the Magnolia Lawn Farm herd of Berkshires . Messrs . Blow are to be congratulated on their selection of this great young sow .
