BUILDING A BEEF [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 3 November 1898
BUILDING A BEEF A BUNCH OF BEEVES ON A DAKOTA FARM . BY OUR SPECIAL ARTIST , C . TUEGEL . Edited by W . B . Lloyd . A Few Words with Our Readers . IT is with pleasure that I send out this number of the good old Rural to our thousands of readers . I say old Rural , for as long ago as when I was a boy the Rural was read by the farmers in the states near Chicago . It was the Western Rural then . Now it is read by farmers and towns-people from Maine to California and from Minnesota to . the gulf—it has a national circulation and is the National Rural and today it goes out under its new name . I call it good because it has so much in it that will help men and women and children and anything that helps any one is good . Those who have been reading these good things for years love their old friend and may be sorry to have the name changed , but as the friend will be just as good , just as true as in the years gone by . they will love it just as much with the new name and the new readers th...

Profitable Cattle Feeding . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 3 November 1898
Profitable Cattle Feeding . By Prof . F . B . Mumford . BUILDING THE FBAMEWOKK i HE general public has . little cons ception of the magnitude of the business of beef production in . the United States .- The latest statistics show that , the combined value , of ill cattle in this country in 1897 reaches the enormous sum of over $ 1 , 000 , 000 , 000 . This array of figures has little significance until . we begin to compare the cattle industry with other agricultural products . By authority of . the same statistics quoted above , we find that the value of cattle in the United States is twice that of eorii , more than double that of wheat , and seven times greater than the entire oat crop . As compared witn other animal industries , the value of cattle exceeds that of horses by more than 000 millions of dollars ; while the total value of all , the sheep in . the United States is , but one fifteenth of the . value of cattle : The swine industry , generally asso ciated with beef product...

SHELTER FOR FATTENING CATTLE . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 3 November 1898
SHELTER FOR FATTENING CATTLE . THERE is much difference of opinion among feeders as to tlie actual value of sheltering feeding cattle during tne fattening . period . Sheltering cattle involves considerable extra expense over the ordinary method of feeding in open lots . The first cost includes an expenditure for barns , and the annual cost will be represented by cost of-repairing . buildings , greater labor in caring lor animals , and possiblv a / slightly greater risk from disease , arising from too close confinement . The advantages claimed are : 1 . Less -waste in feeding . and less food to produce a given gam , and 2 . Saving of manure e , * * t - i THERE is little question but that there is a saving of feed and certainly a saving of manure from indoor / feeding . The last ¦ proposition , that less food is , required for a given-gain , needs some investigation . This question has occupied the attention of several western Experiment Stations , and the results , agree in a gen A G...

^ •w How I Feed for Beef . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 3 November 1898
^ •w How I Feed for Beef . By . J . ¦ W . Robinson . I HATE been a feeder for fifty years , and the following is my , present method of feeding for beef : In the first place , I get good Short-horn , or Whiteface , or Polled Angus cattle . I buy from spring calves up . I feed well , have plenty of grass and keep them growing . When I commence to feed I get them to a top feed and never let them get hungry . My choice way ^ of feeding is on grass and corn . I was among the first who fed on grass . Some men talk of fattening cattle m sixty days and . some in six months . I can beat that , feeding them twelve months . It takes that long to get hog fat , and that is what you would call mellow , and the butchers all want them . It is a very hard matter at present to get cattle of good quality be . cause of being adulterated with milk 3 . W . ROBINSON stock . Just now I am raising some Polled Angus cattle . I like them very much and believe them to be good cattle and good feeders . I comme...
Killing Beef on the Farm . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 3 November 1898
Killing Beef on the Farm . By W . B . Lloyd . A FARMER should have some meat besides salt pork . A nice fat beef riicely dressed will help out wonderfully and with the-addition of a tripod to the tools usually found on a well regulated farm the killing and dressing may be done without driving the animal to a slaughter house . M AKE a tripod as follows : . . Take three poles twelve feet long , 2 x 0 scantling will do , bore a hole through each on the six inch face six inches from one . end and bolt them together with an eight bolt , having a clevis clasping the middle scantling and •included in the bolting .- In this clevis fasten the . hook of one block of an ordinary-block arid tackle or if you have not a block and tackle fasten a pulley into the clevis in the tripod and have a roller fastened between two of ithe standards of the tripod near the ground and run the rope used for hoisting the carcass over these . - . - ; TPO kill the creature shoot with a 32-calibre rifle , placing t...
