Raising Calves for Beef Making [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Raising Calves for Beef Making By Prof . Geo . E . Morrow . T HERE is a marked Improvement In the cheerfulness and good spirits ot beef producers in many parts of the United , States . Prices are better and there is Increased interest in rearing cattle for beef making . Predictions are unsafe , but there are good- reasons for hoping that for a few years we may havefairly satisfactory prices , giving a profit to those who economically rear or cheaply purchase cattle and wisely feed them . There Is much reason to believe that many farmers In the chief corn and grass states will go back to their former custom of rearing calves instead of depending upon purch a s i n g from the ranges or from other regions . Possibly there mav not be s o PROF . GEO . E . MORROW . many as formerlymerly of the men with hundreds of cows kept solely to produce a : calf each year , but I believe and hope there may be a marked increase in the number . of cows kept on many ; thousands -of farms in the central ...
Consumption of Indian Corn in Germany [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Consumption of Indian Corn in Germany THE import of Indian corn into Germany , is of especial interest to Americans . The past decade has witnessed a phenomenal growth in tliis trade . The first imports took place in the fifties , and were of slow growth at first , but during recent years , they have been far more rapidly developed than those ot any otlier cereal coining through the North Sea ports . This rapid increase is a sign of the increase lu German cattle raising , aiid the dependence of German farmers upon foreign cattle foods . In 1897 . it was perhaps especially due to the damage caused by rain to the oat crop . The principal and almost only source of corn supply is the United States . Bremeu and Hamburg are the great corn-importing centers of : Germany . In the year 1897 . tlie arrivals of corn at Hamburg were 018 . 8 ( 51 tons , valued at 42 . 000 . 000 marks ( $ 51 . 5 ) 11 ( 1 .- 0 ( 10 ) : and at Bremen 242 . 054 tons , valued ai 10 . 000 . 000 marks ( $ 3 , 808 , 000...
Soil Exhaustion [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Soil Exhaustion R EPORTS from this section are that quantity nnd quality of wheat are poor . The statement hns been made that it seems that each succeeding year has witnessed a decline in the wheat yield . Inquiries as to the cause bring out varied answers ., some of which are correct aridlsome are not . Many attribute it to the season , seemingly thinking that the seasons have so far gone back on the farmer through various parts of Illinois , that the state is rapidly becoming less and less a wheat- state . To my mind this is not the reason , but the true causes are quite apparent . Illinois has long been regarded as one of the most fertile states of this fertile country of ours and her soil . Iri sections at least , has been regarded as-inexhaustible . This ¦ belief . 1 think has led to some serious er rors . • • A recent trip took me through Crawford . Jasper , Clay , Richland . Fayette , Bond and neighboring counties and . while some of these counties are naturally poor in soil ...
4 . « » : f . 0 ' Improving Waste Land [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
4 . « » : f . 0 Improving Waste Land ¦ Mr . Dow , has wisely urged the young farmer to improve . his farm . He loves liis farm Uie more for every . improvement made , even at the cost of much hard work . But it is not always an improvement to • clear the bnish from rough places . We sometimes improve such places by making them wood arid timber lots . - Forest and ¦ Stream says , The work of the forester is to eliminate the struggle for life . It will be easier for the young farmer to go into his rough . Imshy lot-and give the valuable trees , no matter how small they may be , a ¦ chance to develop into something valuable . Stumps and rocks will not have to be removed . The net profit will sometimes be ¦ equal to that from the best arable acre s . We need to reforest many places on our farms . —F . F .

« » Cattle Raising West of the Rockies By E . H . Libby . THOUSANDS of head of young stock-are 1 bred west of the Rockies , in eastern Washington and Jsorthern Idaho , and are sold to the , graziers ; of Montana and Dakota . One party of buyers alone , from Montana , buy up . each year , such stock to the amount of $ 250 , 000 more or less .

Bohemian Butter and Pork Products [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 1 December 1898
Bohemian Butter and Pork Products By Consul Frank Mali in . A RECENT article in an American newspaper received at this consulate said that the United States Secretary of Agriculture had successfully introduced American butter into Europe . If the , price of American butter sold in Europe is no higher than that of European butter , the former should gradually gain a large sale as its superior quality becomes known . The first day : after being made . European butter may seem equal to the American product ; but generally : by the second or third day it will have an old , strong taste and smell . It may be thntthe butter is not properly worked : or the dificulty may be due to the practice of keeping cows in barns all the year round , instead of turning them loose in pastures , as is done in the United States . ? . •¦» Table butter sells here : at about thirty cents a-pound .
