I EXPERIMENT STATIONS [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 September 1915
I EXPERIMENT STATIONS Reports from thk FanimLal ^ V Beet Yields in the United States Low With the exception of Russia , the beet yield per acre in this country is lower than that of any other beet-producing country . Climatic conditions , the character of the soil and the relative cost of labor and land , which prevents as much work being spent on each acre as is done in Europe , account for much of the differences in the yield . But even when no such factors have to be taken into consideration , in the same localities , on soil of the same character , under cultural methods that appear identical , there is the widest range in the yield . It is common to find • one farmer hauling twenty tons of beets from each acre to the factory when his neighbor can barely muster seven or eight tons . The variations in beet yields under apparently similar conditions are so striking that the Department of Agriculture has conducted an investigation into the causes for these differences . The investi...

Handling Damp Wheat by Mixing [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1915
Handling Damp Wheat by Mixing The moisture content in much of the wheat delivered from the farm is high this year , and if put in storage without special treatment is very likely to cause trouble by becoming musty and hot . By mixing high-moisture and lowmoisture wheat together , a method whereby part of the damp wheat of this year s crop can be put into good condition was demonstrated in an experiment at Baltimore which was directed by a grain standardization specialist of the Department of Agriculture in cooperation with a manufacturing concern of the same city . The experiment was performed to determine if it would be possible or feasible to handle damp wheat in such a way that it would not be necessary to put it through a commercial drier and yet insure its keeping safely in storage or during shipment . One car of Pacific Coast white wheat containing 1 , 098 bushels was mixed with one car of Eastern red winter wheat containing 1 , 126 bushels , and put in storage in an elevator ...

The War As a Tonic [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1915
The War As a Tonic AMERICAN industries , including agriculture , received a smack in the face when the war started , and yet , while deploring the fracas we have every reason to congratulate ourselves as a nation . We have been forced to create new branches and enlarge the scope . of existing phases of manufacture , and this has opened the way to utilize , on a vast scale , greater natural resources of the United States , and induced manufacturers and merchants to expand their markets into foreign fields with prospects of permanent results . American ingenuity has been applied with great success to the making of articles previously imported . A review of the chief industries ministering particularly to the temporary needs of the belligerents across the Atlantic shows that the final outcome will be a very material addition to the manufacturing plant of the United States . Part of this plant will be simply anticipatory of the normal growth of the country s mechanical equipment ; part ...
Little Things That Count [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1915
Little Things That Count IT WAS little things that started the great war now sweeping Europe . Little acts , words and movements often develop into astounding revolutions , movements and results . If is a little thing to save a few bushels of seed corn every September , another little thing to see that it is dried and stored properly , and still another little thing to test every ear by the germination test before planting the corn in the spring ; yet the doing of these little things by every American farmer would add at least a quarter of a billion dollars annually to their wealth . It is such a little thing to test the cows and see if they arc paying for their keep , merely the weighing of the milk from each animal at each milking , and testing for fat percentage once a month ; yet were every cow in the United States so tested , we could get as much milk from half the cows , half the stable room , and use only half the feed , while having a great deal of the time spent on milking ...
Timely Topics [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1915
Timely Topics How Many Hogs to the Acre ? The question is frequently asked : How many hogs will an acre carry ? It is an impossibility to answer such a general question in a definite way , but it can be answered approximately as follows : Hogs from eight to twelve months old ought to average a pound and a half to two pounds of gain a day during the fattening period . We know approximately the amount of food required to make this amount of gain and if we make a guess of the yield , we can make an approximate guess of the number of hogs required to consume the crop in a given time . A crop of twenty-five bushels of corn with the accompanying cow hundreds peas ought to make four pounds of pork , or be the equivalent of peas ought to make four hudred days . To consume that amount in thirty days , it would require seven hogs . If the hogs are mixed ages , including ligs , it will carry an average of ten to welve hogs per acre . Peanuts would make a little more pork per acre than corn , b...
The Tractor and the Hired Man [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1915
The Tractor and the Hired Man J UST as the automobile opened up a new field for thousands of men , so does the general adoption of the farm tractor mean a new era for the hired man . At the present time the greater number of men who hire out to farmers for the summer are of the class who might be called unskilled . Many of them , after harvest is over , return to the big cities or wander off to lumber camps . Of course , it is impossible for farmers to keep the extra hands all year round , at least , under present existing circumstances . In many cases the regular man is glad to put in his winter months doing chores for his board and keep . The farm tractor is going to make the hired man more valuable in the future , providing he wishes to be . With a knowledge of how to operate the tractor , and keep it in repair , he will be able to hold his job the year round , and at a better salary than hithertofore . The utility of the tractor does not cease immediately after plowing and seedi...
