DEHORNING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 February 1900
DEHORNING . One of the most important of the many silent revolutions which liave taken place in agricultural methods in the past decade has been the change in public sentiment in regard tp dehorning cattle . When first practiced it was thought by many to be both cruel and unnecessary . Time and experience have demonstrated beyond question that it is not only a most humane practice , but is highly profitable to the owner of the stock . The best authorities now endorse dehorning , and it is practiced to-day in all the experimental stations and prize dairy herds of the country . Probably no one had more to do with bringing this about than the late A . C . I-Srosius , of Cochranville , Pa . Early methods of dehorning were both crude and painful . Mr . Brosius invented a dfihomer which he patented in 1892 , which has a quick powerful action and makes a clean smooth cut .

With a few sows to beg-in with , I was naturally giving my hogs . pretty good care , and was in hopes to get a good lot of hogs to feed that fall , but after doing the best for them I could with good pens and good feed and care , I had only an average of four...
