Growing the Calf If the udder of the cow is in good condition and shows no signs of garget , the calf may be removed after it has nursed once or twice . This is of advantage not only to the cow and calf but to the patience of the master as well . _ When the calf is removed it should be placed in a clean , warm pen out of sight of its dam . It should be fed from four to six quarts of milk daily , thc amount given depending upon its size and vigor . In nature the calf takes its feed frequently and in small quantities . Its stomach is quite small at first , hence it is very easy to overfeed . l * or this reason it is better to feed it three times per day rather than twice for the first few weeks . For the first week the milk given the calf should come directly from its dam . The milk of a fresh cow is so different from that produced later that it is termed GRAND CHAMPION HOLSTEIN COW AT NEBRASKA STATE FAIR ( Fitted and Shown by the Indians . ) colostrum . This is unfit for human consum...

• nil n _ • ^ ___ ^ Fairy Magic—Telephone Reality A tent large enough to shelter his vast army , yet so small that he could fold it in his hand , was the gift demanded by a certain sultan of India of his son , the prince who married the fairy PariBanou . It was not difficult for the fairy to produce the tent When it was stretched out , the sultan s army conveniently encamped under it and , as the army grew , the tent extended of its own accord . A reality more wonderful than Prince Ahmeds magic tent is the Bell Telephone . It occupies but a few square inches of space on your desk or table , and yet extends over the entire country . When you grasp it in your hand , it is as easily possible to talk a hundred or a thousand miles away as to the nearest town or city . In the Bell System , 7 , 500 ,- 000 telephones are connected and work together to take care of the telephone needs of the people of this country . As these needs grow , and as the number of telephone users increases , the s...

Training the Collie [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

Training the Collie Steady there ! Whoa ! Come easy ! To anyone who has heard an experienced trainer of the Collie dog giving : his commands , these are familiar phrases . Ever alert , active and graceful ; this noble animal responds quickly and with apparent ease to each and every one of its master s commands . To the casual observer , it appears to be an easy task for the shepherd to guide and corral the band of unruly sheep with the aid of his dog . However , back of it all there lies a tale : It is an easy task now for the master and his trained dog to manage the flock , but the hours and days of toil , patience and stubborn persistency which the shepherd has spent in training his dog are factors worthy of consideration . Taking the wee puppy , the trainer makes it his first duty to gain the friendship and confidence of the little animal . This is done , of course , by kind and considerate treatment . Never once does the experienced Collie trainer permit himself to abuse his cha...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

Maintaining the Nitrogen Supply The problem of maintaining the nitrogen supply has caused scientists a good bit of anxiety since it was learned that nitrogen is one of the elements necessary to plant growth . There are two good reasons why this is true . First , nitrogen is easily lost either by being converted into soluble forms and leaching out in drainage water or by denitrification and going off into the air . Second , nitrogen is the most expensive element of plant food when it must be purchased . This is best illustrated when we know that the nitrogen necessary to grow a SO-bushel crop of corn ( about SO pounds ) would cost in its cheapest form not less than $ 7 . 50 . Fortunately the growing of leguminous crops gives us a means of adding nitrogen to the soil without any expense other than - seed . Using common red clover as an example : It is now estimated that for every ton of clover hay produced on the farm 40 pounds of nitrogen will be added , provided the hay is used as a...

ORCHARD l AND GARDEN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

ORCHARD l AND GARDEN Higher Potato Yields In picking up potatoes you could not have but noticed the great variation m number and size of the tubers in each individual hill on the same piece of ground . While this variation may be due in part to differences in soil fertility , soil moisture or from insects or disease , yet much of the difference is due to the inherent productive power of the various tubers from which were cut the seed pieces that planted the hill . When the grower has mixed his potatoes together after picking them in the fall , as is the common practice , he has no way of telling whether the tuber he selects in the spring for planting is from a high or low yielding hill . Under such circumstances he unconsciously plants many potatoes that were the product of the low yielding hills and these can not help but reduce his profitable yield . On the other hand , by carefully selecting at digging time only the high yielding hills he knows the quality of his seed and will be...

PQULTO [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 October 1913

PQULTO Preparing for Winter Plans should be formed this month and work done to make winter poultry keeping profitable . The poultry house should have a careful cleaning and whitewashing , and everything about it put into repair . Nests should be cleaned and thoroughly sprayed with a louse spray and disinfectant . They should be filled with clean straw , as hens have no desire to lay in a dirty nest . Make sure that there are no open cracks or no _ holes behind the roost or at either side of it . Heavy tar paper should cover this part of the house . The paper will prevent any SHOT YOUR EYES draught over the fowls while they arc on the roost . The dropping boards also should be void of cracks so that no draught can come up under the fpwls . Draughts not only endanger the health of the fowls but greatly lessen winter production . A box that is a few inches high but several feet long and wide should be filled with dust or dry earth in which the hens may wallow . Have the dropping boards...
