Grades of Wheat and Prices . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Grades of Wheat and Prices . There is a difference in the quality of the many varieties of wheat as well as a difference in grades of any given variety . The value of a wheat depends upon the amount of fat , starch , sugar , albumen and phosphorus contained in its composition , the albumen existing as , gluten . The greater the proportion of gluten in the wheat , the more valuable the flour produced from it . Hence the object of the miller is to get as much of the gluten as possible , and sell the flour upon its quality . The farmer should learn a lesson therefrom . He too should receive a price for his wheat in proportion to its quality , but it seems that when the arbitrary gamblers and speculators in wheat fix a price for the farmers to take , they pay very little attention to the fact that wheat depends for quality on the kind of soil it is grown upon , and the season in which it is grown . WJien the time arrives for grading wheat according to its gluten , as is done with flour ...
The Minnesota Dairymen at Red Whig . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
The Minnesota Dairymen at Red Whig . The Minnesota Butter , Cheese and Dairy Stock Association met according to program , at the prqsperous little city of Red Wing , December 15 th , and after the usual polite address of welcome on the part of the Mayor , Mr . Herbert , and reply of the President , Mr . Marvin , and the formality of prayer by Eev . McKinley , and music by a Glee Club , the Association got down to business in a direct and sensible manner , refreshing to see and report . This is the fifth annual meeting of the Society , which was the first to organize in Minnesota . Since the organization , and owing greatly to the labors and example set by the Society and its members , the number of cows in the State has increased 300 per cent in the past six years , there being now over 400 , 000 in Minnesota . Diversified farming received its usual and just meed of praise in the opening address of President Marvin . The cow was exalted , not only in horn but also in hoof , and the ...
Reduction of Bones . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Reduction of Bones . In reducing bones care must be exercised not to drive away the ammonia . Consequently , when grinding or pounding them , this fact must be considered , as a great many persons are in the habit of charring the bones in order to render them brittle . Slightly heating them does not cause injury to any great extent , but when they are burned in such manner as to form charcoal on any part of them it indicates that so much of the bone has been deprived of its ammonia . But , though suffering a loss of nitrogenous matter , the bones still contain the phosphates , and are as valuable in that respect as before being charred . In the use of sulphuric acid for changing the chemical structure of bones , the acid not only liberates r the phosphoric acid , and sets it free , but forms sulphates with the lime and ammonia . Hence the commercial superphosphate is composed largely of sulphate of lime ( plaster ) phosphoric acid uncombined , and sulphate of ammonia , the amount of...

Composition of Soils . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Composition of Soils . No chemist can give the composition of the entire soil in a field , by simply analyzing a portion or sample therefrom . A shovelful of manure , a vigorous plant , moisture , exposure and other causes operate against basing the value of the soil upon any particular part taken from the whole . The composition of soils changes every season , for if such was not the case a fertile soil would never become impoverished . But though a soil may lose fertility , yet such loss may be of only a particular kind . A crop of clover grown upon a field and plowed under , will impart nitrogen to the soil when the green manurial matter has been thoroughly decomposed , yet the soil may be deficient in phosphoric acid . For that reason we Know that when a crop of clover is turned under , the land will produce an excellent yield of corn , but in the effort to do so the soil is stimulated to yield sufficient phosphoric acid for tho supply of the corn , while the nitrogen , being in...
System on the Farm . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
System on the Farm . In the workshops and factories everything is done systematically . There is a time for beginning work and a time for work to cease , while each and all have certain duties and places allotted them , which they are supposed to be familiar with , and which enables them to perform the greatest amount of labor in the shortest time . If machinery is used , the most competent persons are selected to manage it , and all the details are faithfully attended to with a view of lessening expenses and increasingprofits . It is not always that regular hours of labor can be adopted on the farm . The nature of the work varies with the seasons . No length of time nor certain number of hours of labor can be fixed upon . The farmer is governed by the demands of his crops , the nature of his soil , the weather , the climate and many other considerations . Yet there should be system . As much as possible systematic methods should be pursued . The laborers on the farm should be given...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Properly Balanced Rations . Those who have given the matter of feeding a thorough investigation , know that there is a saving and gain in so equalizing the feeding materials as to balance them in accordance with the requirements of the animals . The average farmer will be slow to look deeply into such results obtained by others , as he does not thoroughly understand them . He is told that he must provide certain proportions of hydro-carbon , protein , fat , etc ., but the terms used are too unlike those to which he is accustomed to attract his attention closely . While we believe that the work done by investigators in experiments for the purpose of discovering how to feed for the best results , have been of incalculable benefit , yet the farmers can be best induced to adopt such systems when he is informed in regard to the proper quantities of hay and grain to feed . Our investigators cannot formulate feeding materials for the farmers at large , and hence , the difficulty of giving ...

Managing Dairy Cows . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 2 January 1886
Managing Dairy Cows . At tho late convention of the Minn sota Cheese , Sutter and Stock Association , Mr . W . E . Pulman , Eed Wing , Minn ., in the premium essay on How to Manage a Herd of Dairy Cows , called attention to the various methods of management , including those who buy cows , feed heavily for the production of milk and sell the cows when fat . Another class practice mixed farming and raise their stock . Still another class sell the milk or cream direct to the factory . The Ayrshire cross on cows was advocated , as producing a grade that would give milk and make good beef when fat . The three prime essentials advocated were : plenty of good grass of mixed varieties , absolutely pure water , and good shade where the cows may chew their cud in contentment , without fear from worrying dogs . The barn should include convenience in filling with forage , economy in feeding to stock , and the securing of warmth , pure air and cleanliness , the two latter not always easy when t...
