^ am ^^ ^ Ipbairy and Live Stock J mr wWW ^ -r-r- --mj » -- SUPPORT THB OBBAMEHY W HEBE a creamery has been established it should be supported and it should be supported right . Good butter-makers are expensive and it costs considerable to keep a factory running the year round . In most factories there is more milk in summer than there is in winter and the factory must be arranged to take care of the larger quantity . This means that there is a lot of machinery and a lot of room idle all winter . There are employes that must , be kept when there is very little for them to do . During this time the creamery is probably running at a Joss . , , Butter brings better prices m winter than it does in summer . It pays better to raise fall calves than it does spring calves . Dairying pays better in winter because there is less work to do on the farm and the help may be kept busy when the cows are turning out lots of milk . The , . only reason why there is more milk supplied to creameries jin...

The exact procedure , may var y with different judges , but each man should have , a definite method of work and follow it . A very satisfactory plan is tc . approach I hog from the front . From Ee observe 8 the width of the back , he uniformity of width throughout , the width and 7 smoothness of the shoulders on top , the evenness with which tne neck joins the shoulders , the width of the head , its length and the shape and set of the ears . The presence or absence of wrinkles in the face should also be noticed , and , in breeding classes , the eyes should be observed . Next , stepping to the side , the dish of the face is easily seen , and the trimness of the jowl , and the way it carries back to the shoulder , and the depth of chest and body is also to be noted ,...

STAIilONS SHOUI-D BE WORKED [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 February 1907

STAIilONS SHOUI-D BE WORKED By M . Stenson Among the questions that present themselves to the horsebreeder none is perhaps more important than how to get a suitable sire to mate with brood mares . On this question depends whether the blood in the mare is g 0 . ing to be improved in the progeny or allowed to degenerate . When selecting a sire , the main points to go by are the looks of the animal and its pedigree . But these two factors , however important they are , cannot alone secure an efficient offspring , it must be remembered that what is required in a horse is strength and vitality and these qualities are not necessarily combined with a good conformation , a smooth surface , shiny coat and heavy weight . Fat increases weight and makes the horse look good to an uncritical observer , but it does not increase strength . On the contrary , it will diminish the working strength of the muscles , the strength that will last . Take a fat man . He may be strong as a bear for a moment b...

CATTLE GOING TO MEXICO [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 February 1907

CATTLE GOING TO MEXICO Since the Mexican duty was removed from American cattle a great many Mexican ranchmen are importing thoroughbred stock from the United States . It is noticeable that hundreds of good milk cows have been shipped from Illinois and Kentucky to the vicinity or Mexico City . The time will come when horned cattle will be bred only as curiosities or for show purposes as fancy breeds ot poultry are now . The advantages or the mullies are so many that the horns must go . It is just as easy to breed cattle without horns as with horns , ami it is a great deal easier to take care of them afterwards . • Do you know that . your horse s teeth are in a good condition and that they fit together properly so he can makf profitable use of dry feed this winter ! .

FEBDINO WHEAT TO HORSES [Newspaper Article] — Farm Press — 1 February 1907

FEBDINO WHEAT TO HORSES THE Washington state agricultural experimental station at Pullman has under consideration a series ol experiments of feeding wheat to work horses . Feeding experiments during the last ten years with cattle and swine show that wheat yields better resiilts than any other cereal . In the Northwest oats and barley have been tho traditional feeds for horses . Wheat has been used in mixtures , but there has always been fear of foundering from it , the idea being it is too heating . However , in the case of hogs and cattle such uniform results have been attained that it would seem likely that horses should be peculiar in this respect . It is probable that the vast number of work horses on the farm , in the towns and cities and on the many construction lines for railways and irrigation enterprises in the Northwest , can use wheat as tbe foundation and the largest part of the ration . To get exact data on this point and thus promote the interests of consumer and produ...

I tried a standard variety of stock food with no results , and I changed feed with no results ; then I tried the sugar beet , and inside of ten days they did not show any signs of distemper , also quit the cough , which had been very severe . Now they are slicking up , the same as if they were on grass . I feed from twelve to fifteen pounds per day of beets ( pf course I still feed grain ) .

SPRING PLANTING F ALL planting of fruit trees is sometimes recommended in Wisconsin . It is an attractive argument , and if tho plan would only -work out successfully in practice it would be generally followed . By practicing tall planting trees could be dug in the nursery and set in the orchard within a few days ; theoretically root growth would start at once nnd the tree become in a measure established and ready to begin growth long before trees could be set in the spring . Again , the farmer or fruit man has no time in the spring to plant trees , etc . All of these arguments and many others equally plausible are advanced by advocates of fall planting . These are offset , however , by the plain fact , demonstrated by ample evidence , that fall planting of fruit trees in Wisconsin has not proven as successful as early spring planting . A larger percentage...
