Rearing Ducks and Gucesc [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1914

Rearing Ducks and Gucesc Either a flock of geese or ducks make a pretty picture upon the landscape , and what is more alluring than the same fowls at sport upon the water of either brook or pond . This , their native element , seems to show them off to the very best advantage possible , as they skim along upon the surface , at ease ; or madly dash and storm about , striking the water with their wings . Both geese and ducks are easily raised . There is usually a good market for both the fowls and their eggs , and their feathers prove another source of use and profit . The parent stock at this time should be fed very little corn , as it is too fattening . If the ground is bare they DEEP-BODIED TOULOUSE GEESE need very little grain . They get their living from the ground , especially if allowed the freedom of a pond or creek . In the summer , spring and fall their living is grass and water . If one desires to rear a large flock of geese , the first eggs laid may be set under hens or in...

I AlX j ^ fcl &^ M [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1914

I AlX j ^ fcl &^ M Farm Help The reason some farmers cannot afford to keep a hired man is because they do not know how to manage their business to make it pay . I have seen farmers with only 20 acres , who keep two hired men all the season and one the year around . A UTTLE EXERCISE FOR THE BACK Then I have seen men who owned 100 acres who could not afford to keep one . It s all in knowing how to make the soil give up every dollar of profit there is in it . It s a poor farmer who cannot pay a man $ 30 a month and make a dollar a day profit from his work . Some of them make three or four times as much . Final Selection Seed Corn The wise farmer selected his seed corn for next year s crop last fall , hut as there was so little time to select the ears , more than all that were of a desirable type , shape and general character were selected . Consequently , a second or final selection should be made before making the germination test later . This will save trouble and expense...

aTasW VtlVI V ^ j ^ - . - A Ol AW a . UK Test Your Cows Some cows make the farmer large profits . Some merely pay their way . Some are boarders and almost always indebted to their kind and unsuspecting owners who furnish them with feed and shelter . Of course , it is not profitable to keep a boarder cow—she costs money ; neither is it profitable to keep a mediocre cow—she makes no money . It is profitable to keep the cow of the high butter fat testshe pays well for her feed and care and has a surplus , too . It is plain that the man who makes money milking cows , selling cream or butter , must have some means of selecting , some way of distinguishing good cows from the poor . TESTED COWS AND A There is a way to check up on the cow s production . It is by means of the scales and the Bapcock tester . It simply means that each cow is milked separately and the milk is weighed , morning and evening and the weights are tabulated in their proper order on the chart . At stated intervals , s...

Hotbeds for Farmers [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 January 1914

Hotbeds for Farmers There are many advantages in the use of hotbeds on the farm which will more than repay the smalt extra expense and labor involved in their usage . The most important advantage perhaps is that the farmer has vegetables earlier in the season than his neighbor who trusts to sowing his seed outdoors . The hotbed should be located where it is convenient to farm buildings and where water is available . It should have a full exposure to the south in order that the suns rays may do the geratest amount of good . Protection from the north , either by a board fence or a building , will give more satisfactory results .. In preparing the hotbed , the pit shoqld be dug before heavy freezing weather sets in and then mulched with a straw and manure to prevent freezing . It will then be ready for use early in the spring before the frost is out of the ground . The soil should also be prepared , mixed , and placed near the beds and mulched over with manure . In fact , all operation...
