THE SHEAF [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
THE SHEAF AN important , if true , suggestion comes from a correspondent of thc American Cultivator . He says that the milk of cows of different breeds must be kept separate to secure the best results in the dairy . The mixture of milk invariably reduces the yield , and lie gives the statement of sev . eral dairymen in support of tli is assertion . They show a loss by mixture , as compared to each separate , of about one pound in six . One benefit of the mixture , however , is lost , the rich and nutty flavor of the milk being impaired . It would bo a simple matter to test this experiment . FKOM advance sheets ot thc report of the Department of Agriculture , the following figures in regard to the hog product of Illinois . for 1879 are taken : Number of hogs assessed May , 1879 , 2 , 799 , 051 ; hogs marketed in 1879 , 1 , 984 , 194 ; total gross weight of IIOSIN marketed in 1879 , 504 , 165 , 816 pounds ; average value per 100 pounds live weight , $ 3 . 30 ; value of hog product mar...
AGRICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
AGRICULTURAL THE ICE HOUSE . A good natured critic of the Agriculturist says that now is the season to pick icicles . Perhaps it is , though they have ripened very late . But joking apart , there seems to be every reason to believe that a light crop ot ice will be gathered this Winter , and in consequence ice will be scarce and high next Summer . The residents of cities are more particularly interested in the prices , but the convenience and luxury to be obtained by having a bountiful supply of ice is common to all , and as a matter of profitable enterprise it may be put down by the farmer , as well as the regular dealer . But for family use every good farm should have an ice house and store its supplies for the hot Summer days . An ice house can be made very cheaply , the roughest lumber being just as good as if dressed nud painted . Even old rails may be laid up to form a wall that will keep ice if it is properly packed and covered by a tight roof . Many farmers have old buildings...
USE OF BUCKWHEAT TO DESTOY IN SECTS . . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
USE OF BUCKWHEAT TO DESTOY IN SECTS . . Here is something new to us , says the American Entomologist , in the way of an insecticide . It comes to us from the other side of the Atlantic . Perhaps it works on the principle of the hair of the same dog curinghisbito , forit has long been claimed that a too free use of buckwheat cakes caused cutaneous eruptions in man , and that the raw grain had a similar effect up . on birds . It is a fact , also , well-known to entomologists , that the plant is wonderfull y free frem insect attacks . The Tartarian buckwheat referred to in the following extract from the Farmer ( London ) , has a rough kind of grain different from the ordinary varieties , and it is sometimes cultivated in the New England States under the name of Merino Buckwheat : Many years practical experience has convinced M . Lagarde that sowing buckwheat in soils invested by white worms , grubs , ants , etc ., etc ., allowing it to grow till it flowers , and then plowing or digging...
THE APIARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
THE APIARY COMB FOUNDATION . Messrs . Oatman &amp; Sins , Kane county , 111 ., are very successful bee-keepers , as well as dairymen . They use what they call the Modest hive . A correspondent of the REVIEW recently visited their apiary , and found everything in most excellent shape . They use the artificial foundation comb , which is a great saving in time and labor to the bees . They estimate that it takes forty pounds of honey to feed the bees , to enable them to make the comb for tlie storing of their hive with honey . With honey at fifteen cents per pound , this expense would be $ 6 . 00 . Seventy-five cents worth of the foundation , therefore , saves $ 5 . 25 to each colony of bees . These gentlemen took the flrst prize at the English show last year , where they were in competition with British and Continental honey .
BEE-KEEPING AND FARMING [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
BEE-KEEPING AND FARMING There are few farms on which seed crops are not grown for profit , and in many , large areas are devoted to them , and there is not one of them but yields beefood in greater or less degree . There are several of these crops lhat , in good seasons , would yield ia honey more than would pay the cost of rent and tillage , while individually they would be greatly increased by the more certain fertilization of its blossoms , which the presence of the bees would insure . In green crops there are many that yield tioney enormously , those nf the clover tribe being the most productive ; yet the greater portion is allowed to waste itself , or serve only as food for insects other than tiees . If a keen farmer saw the liquid strength of his manure-pit running to waste in the ditches and brooks , he would think his bailiff was crazy for permitting such a shameful waste ; but the product which insensibly steals away the strength of his land , he quietly allows to evaporate...
H ORTICULTURAL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
H ORTICULTURAL IN THE GARDEN . —NO . 7 . nASPBERlUES . Every garden should include at least a dozen raspberry bushes . Next to the strawberry , it is the most useful Summer fruit we have—excepting always tlie cherry , which I would prefer to cither of the others if I could have but one . No garden fruit yields larger returns from a small investment of money , time and labor , than the raspberry . It is not necessary , in most localities , to be at any real cash expense in procuring plants , for there is generally some one in the neighborhood who has plenty of young plants to give away . The raspberry likes a rich soil . If you And it in the woods , or in old clearings , where it grows to perfection , you will find that it selects an old stump , whose roots are deep in decayed vegetable matter , for its favorite location . There , in the light , porous soil , its roots will penetrate the earth in every direction , and a correspondingly vigorous top growth will also take place . Thc c...

MONEY AND COMMERCE [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
MONEY AND COMMERCE FINANCE , TUESDAY EVBKINO . Feb . 10 th . 1880 . The money market remains easy at 6 @ 8 per cent ., and the demand is below the supply ot funds , seeking ; loans in good business paper . There is in fact nothing in the present business situation to induce desirable customers to become borrowers , as the show for profits on invesmentsare decidedly small , and there is no reason to look for an improvement until the Spring trade fairly opens . There is , however , a light improvement in the demand for money from the interior , and an active call from that source is anticipated as soon as grain begins to move forward to market with freedom . Advices from the Eastern cities report I money plenty , and rates to good borrowers low . There Is a large amount of money seeking loans on real estate security , but lenders are cautious as to the quality of the property accepted . Exchange on New York sells at par to 25 c . premium per $ 1 , 000 . The New York stock market has b...

C ROP R EPORTS THE FARMERS REVIEW OF THE SEASON . EFFECT OF THE OPEN WINTER ON THE GROWING WHEAT , HAY , CORN AND CATTLE —REPORTS FROM DAKOTA , MINNESOTA , NEBRASKA , KANSAS , MISSOURI , IOWA , WISCONSIN , MICHIGAN , OHIO AND INDIANA . A week of cold freezing weather . The roads have been in a passable condition and considerable stock and grain has found its way to market . Yet the readers of THE REVIEW who have followed our reports for the past few weeks need not to be informed tbat the bulk of all our crops of 1879 have long since found their way into market , hence we have reason to be encouraged in regard to prices for the future . In Kansas at present , rain is greatly needed on the Winter wheat . In Iowa hog cholera has broken out in many counties . There seems now to be no doubt that our corn crop of 1879 has been very largely over-estimated , as but very few of our correspondents report any thing more than an average crop . DAKOTA . BISMARCK . —75 , 000 bushels of oats raise...

LIVE STOCK NOTES OVER ten thousand sheep were brought info Nebraska in 1879 . The Siate is proving well adapted to sheep husbandry . RON . JOHN SCOTT , of Nevada . Iowa , has commenced the breeding of Shetland ponies . We doubt not the Colonel will receive a handsome profit as the result of this new . venture .

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 4 [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 4 HAVING A STANDARD IN BREEDING . It is obvious that an animal can not be adopted in tbe highest possible degree for normal different purposes . The horse best fitted for drawing heavy loads is not well adapted for fast running ; the sheep which produces combine-wool of the best quality , is not to be criticised because it does not also produce the best possible felting-wool . A fair degree of excellence in ditterent directions may be found in one animal , and such an animal may be adapted for the uses of a large number of persons ; but if one wishes an animal for one given purpose , he will not do wisely to select because of other qualities . It is equally obvious that an animal can not be equally well adapted for widely varying conditions of life . If well suited for subsisting in a mountainous region , it may readily happen that a level country may prove anything but suitable . Keeping these two points in mind , the intending breeder should , flrst o...
VETERINARY [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 12 February 1880
VETERINARY QUERIES AND ANSWERS . QUERY ; ABORTION IN CATTLE . —B . H , Illinois , says he is greatly troubled by abortion among his dairy stock . The trouble commenced in August , and still continues . He asks the FARMERS REVIEW to . explain the cause , also how to prevent it . ANSWER : When cases of abortion occur here and there , over a wide extent of country , without any relationship as to causes , they may be said to be sporadic , or accidental . But when , on the contrary , pregnant animals , say cows , ewes or mares over a large district or country , miscarry , and the mishap is evidently due to the same cause or causes , then it is said to be enzootic , epizootic or infectious . The causes of sporadic abortion are very numerous—thoy may act directly or indirectly , and produce their effects in an evident or an obscure manner , and may be ranged as external or internal . External causes—atmospherical influences , bad weather or irregular seasons—the abrupt setting in of cold ...
