THE BERKSHIRE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1900
THE BERKSHIRE . Mr . George F . Weston , superintendent of the Biltmore Farms , writes the American Swine Herd as follows : In your issue of this month , I . O . Waylance states that he considers the Berkshires the Aristocratic hog , and mentions the Biltmore Farms as strengthening this idea . . Now he may say what he likes about the Farms , but must find something better than this to sling at the Berkshire , if he wants to hnrt them . I wish to add to trie ^ SBl £ a « ^|»^ BerksW ^^ - ^ j ^^ e 5 i ^ jre _ also the packer s hog , and the poor man s hog , and can prove it , also . These farms have been breeding hogs for nearly ten years , and when in 1895 it was determined to go on a large scale for some breed , a careful examination was made of the merits of the different breeds , there being no sentiment at all in this matter , and quite as much attention being given to the probable demands of the future as the present sales of any of these . The Berkshire gained the day for many r...
PUBLIC SPIRIT . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 June 1900
PUBLIC SPIRIT . The members of tbe Board of Supervisors of Sangamon county are noted for their public spirit and enterprise , and have done much to promite the development of the agricultural resources of the county . Sangamon county for years past has had a large and very creditable display of farm products on exhibition at the Illinois State Fair , which has been made possible only by the aid rendered by the Board of Supervisors . A committee of public spirited citizens , appointed by the County Farmers Institute without any compensation , has devoted much time and labor in collecting and placing on exhibition at the State Fair a creditable display of the products of the farm . The premiums offered by the State Fair for such exhibits with the appropriation made therefor by the Board of Supervisors , have not been sufficient to cover the expense of the agent employed to do the work and such shortage has in several instnees been made up by the business men of Springfield . The follo...

SiDine : RAPE FOR SWINE FEEDING . By W . A . Henry , author of Feeds and Feeding , Dean and Director of Agricultural College and Experiment Station , University Of Wisconsin . Every stockman who has pigs should have a patch of rape for them , and now is the time to provide it . Rape may be sown any time from early spring until the first of August , and is ready for use from eight to ten weeks after the seed is sown . The seed may be sown with oats or barley , or it may be sown by itself . If with the former , let the oats appear above ground , and then sow on two or three pounds of rape seed and cover lightly with a harrow . The dragging will not kill -the oats , and will cover the rape seed . The rape starting after the oats will g ; row spindling because shaded . If sown at the same time , the rape would grow as fast as the oats and make trouble in harvesting . When the oats are cut , I the rape will spring 1 forward and fur- I nish feed . I Another way Is to sow the rape seed by ...

f ~ Poultry j * mr II ¦ POULTRY TOPICS FOR JUNE . Mr . - H . H . Flke , Worth , 111 ., writes The Farm Home : As the season advances , we find that work on the poultry farms increases , and the fancier is more than busy taking care of his chicks . The man or woman who has not the time or inclination to give the chicks good care will tell you next fall that they had poor luck raising chickens this season . Breeders have been to considerable labor and expense in hatching the chicks and it is to your interest to develop them into as fine specimens as possible and to do this they must be kept growing . Do hot . let the old hen wander in the wet grass with her chicks , as such neglect is fatal to them . Young chicks must be kept warm and dry , and must be fed often with suitable feed . - The time of year is now at hand when the young stock must be separated . AU the early hatched chioks should be carefully inspected , all found to be good , enough for breeders , should be given plenty of...
