Bloat Among Cattle or Sheep Can Be Avoided [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

Bloat Among Cattle or Sheep Can Be Avoided Feeding cattle . or sheep dry hay each morning arid then turning them on clover pasture after the dew is off is one of . the surest ways of preventing bloat during the first month of pasturing . The practice of leaving the animals on the . . clover only a short time is a sound one , especially so during the beginning of the pasture season ^ Under no circumstances should hungry animals be permitted to gorge on clover , alfalfa , or sweet clover when the foliage is wet with dew or rain water . Generally prudence is also required in watering them soon after they have filled themselves with green food . : When a serious case of bloat does occur , tapping is by far the surest way of relieving the animal . The incision should be made on the left side at a point an equal distance from the last rib , the hip bonej and the sideways projecting portions ? of the backbone In < ¦ the region of thelira ; A . trocar . is the Instrument intended...

FARM jgSjPCK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

FARM jgSjPCK INFANT MORTALITY AMONG BABY PIGS Guard Rails on Pen Walls Will Save Many Porkers . So high is the infant mortality among baby pigs that one out of every three farrowed ( lies , while on some farms as many as half the pigs are lost , according to Dr . W . B . Carroll of the University of Illinois . If the 140 pounds of feed required to farrow a pig were visualized as each dead one is disposed of during the farrowing season , the thought of such waste would be so startling to farmers that prompt measures would be taken to reduce it . . More pigs are mashed by the sow than die from any other single cause . Guard rails on the pen walls will , of course , save many from this fate , but the sows themselves are frequently at fault . A sow may be deaf or blind or excessively heavy and lazy or even downright careless . Those with any of these defects should be replaced in the interest of saving pigs . Damp , drafty pens likewise take a heavy toll of pigs during a cold farrowing ...

COCCIDIOSIS IS EASY TO CONTROL [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

COCCIDIOSIS IS EASY TO CONTROL Success in controlling coccidiosis depends to a large extent on immediate recognition of the affected chicks , points out J . C . Taylor , associate poultry specialist at the New Jersey College of Agriculture , Rutgers university , New Brunswick . It is possible for chicks to become infected with coccidiosis at any time during the growing period , but the disease generally makes its appearance when the birds are between four and eight weeks old . Chicks that have coccidiosis will stand around near the stove or in the corner of the brooder house with their eyes closed and wirigs down . The beaks and legs of the affected chicks will be white . To , diagnose coccidiosis definitely , it is a good plan to cut open one or two of the affected chicks . The cece , or two blind pouches of the intestines , of diseased chicks will be greatly enlarged and filled with a hard , cheesy mass . AVhen such conditions are found , steps should be taken to stop the spread o...

Kill "Gad Flies" While ' Still in Grub Stage [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

Kill Gad Flies While Still in Grub Stage Gad flies or heel flies , which pester cattle in the springtime , may be killed while still in . the grub stage , imbedded in the backs of cattle , by placing an ointment consisting of one part iodoform and three parts vaseline on each warble hole . This ointment should be placed on the hole of each - ; warble , or large swelling on the animal s hide , with the finger . The grubs can be removed from the backs of animnls by pressure with the fingers , but this seems like a hopeless undertaking . Then , too , crushing or destroying the grubs in the backs of cattle is liable to bring on dangerous anaphylactic symptoms .

No Advantage in Mixed Ground Feed for Pigs [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

No Advantage in Mixed Ground Feed for Pigs There r is usually nothing to be gained by grinding corn for pigs . However , barley and oats both feed a little better to young pigs when they are ground . To simplify feeding , it would be all right to grind the corn along with the-barley and oats . There is no particular advantage to be gained , however , by . mixing this ground feed into a slop before feeding as it can just as well be fed dry so long as the pigs have water available most of the time .

Poultry Houses Badly Infested With Vermin [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

Poultry Houses Badly Infested With Vermin When a poultry house becomes badly infested with mites , It is hard to control them with one application of any material . Mites may gather ln the walls and around the ceiling and -under the dropping boards or behind insulating material in . the walls . They depend on the blood of the roosting • bird as a means to live and if the perches are treated about once each week for a few weeks , all the mites in the house will eventually gather there and be killed . The nests often need considerable spraying , especially if they consist of boxes nailed on the side walls of the house . By adding a little carbolineum to the kerosene oil or engine oil , the mixture will have greater powers for destroying mites . It may be best to paint the roosts , dropping boards , and . nests with clear carbolineum . If the side walls are rough and infested with mites , it may be best to whitewash them to seal up a lot of crevices and make the surface as smooth as po...

Gravelly Soil Is Most Desirable for Sites [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

Gravelly Soil Is Most Desirable for Sites Poultry yards and the sites for poultry houses should be selected with a view to dryness and shelter . A sandy , gravelly soil is most desirable for this purpose , while the lay of the ground should be such as to provide a free natural drainage . If the topography is of such a nature as to render the latter difficult or impossible , recourse must be had to some artificial means of securing dryness . Excessive moisture of the environment is always objectionable from the standpoint of poultry production , while furthermore the presence of surface water , which birds are apt to drink , must be regarded * as a very serious source of mischief . For this reason , pools and puddles , filled wagon ruts or open drains should never be tolerated In yards used for poultry .

Small Shriveled Combs Indicate Poor Layers [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 12 June 1929

Small Shriveled Combs Indicate Poor Layers Some poultry breeders have the impression that the larger the comb the better breeder the bird will prove . It is true that small shriveled combs of females indicate that they are either temporarily out of production or poor layers . The same kind of a comb on a male would lead one to expect him to be a poor breeder . The opposite is not necessarily true , that the larger combed birds are any better breeders than those with combs of average size . Exceptionally large combs on breeds normally having large combs disfigure and handicap the individual .

Occasionally ,-it is true , a loafer gets into college , but he usually doesnt etay long . The principal-object of the modern college is to make a man s education worth something to him .

Grave Necessity for Reorganization of Government in United States \ . : ¦ ¦ . By DEAN WALTER J . SHEPARD , Ohio State University . If democracy is to survive under the present complex industrial system , and America is to avoid falling back on a centralized dictatorship as have several European countries , the government must be fundamentally reorganized along functional and group lines , rather than on geographical lines . We are attempting to operate a Twentieth-century industrial system with an Eighteenth-century scheme of industrial control . We -have advanced by leaps and bounds . in . the field of industrial technique and organization ; We have lagged far behind in the necessary social and political adjustments which such industrial transformation requires .

Devastating Diseases Contracted in Yards It sliould always be kept in mind that usually the most devastating poultry diseases such as tuberculosis , typhoid , cholera , blackhead and coccidiosis arebut rarely contracted in the houses . The yards , that Is the place where the birds find their food and water , are just as important in connection with , disease transmission as the houses . The soil of the poultry yards presents a hygienic aspect of a tremen . dous Importance because on , it are deposited the body wastes of the fowls and those constitute for the diseases mentioned the most common , if not the usual vehicle for their transmission .
