WHY SHEEP PAY . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903
WHY SHEEP PAY . Prof . Kennedy , of the Iowa Experiment Station , says that there are 600 jkinds of weeds and grasses growing in / the agricultural states , and of these \ sheep eat 550 , horses eat 82 and cattle leat 56 . He says sheep relish most wveedsand do well . on them , and , therefore , every farm of a quarter section Vjhould have at least a flock of twentyBve sheep to help keep down the weeds , and that small flocks pay their way on most farms In this way . He says : Less labor is required in handling sheep , than almost any other kind of . stock , during a large portion of the year they will take care of themselves and at the same time utilize the weeds and other wastes found on so many lta . rma . True it is that at certain seasons of the year they must be given food , care and attention . This Is es- . pecially so at lambing time . The successful flockmaster ls the one who ! Watches the old and young very closely I at this season of the year .
MILK FEVER . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903
MILK FEVER . Mr . E . P . William s writes the Jersey Bulletin : It chanced about four years since that on a jury of freeholders called to try an eminent domain of very considerable experience . I knew that one of them had in years past been a serious sufferer ; loser from this dreaded scourge . During an interval of recess mention was made of experience with milk fever . Surprised was I to learn from them that after perhaps ten years last preceding their herds had not suffered from the scourge save in a single instance . Neither of these men made claim to superior learning . However , each was well up in dairy literature , were likewise practical men and dairymen . They suggested to me that even under our artificial system of breeding and caring for dairy stock , nature was ever present and with wise prescience planning with a view to promote the wel fare of both dam and offspring . That since bringing forth the calf tended materially to deplete the system of the dam it was imperat...

FARMERS , TEST YOUR SEED CORN . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 April 1903
FARMERS , TEST YOUR SEED CORN . Will your seed corn grow ? This question every farmer should be able to answer for himself before the corn planting season arrives . The question is very imperative this year , because there Is every indication that a great deal of the cribbed corn of last year s crop , which furnishes the greater part of the seed corn planted , will not germinate this spring . The conditions during the past winter have been very unfavorable for the maintenance of vitality of seed corn ; the late maturity , the sappy condition at husking time , with consequent increased moisture in the cribbed corn , has made It more susceptible to the past winter s freezing and the result is a very large per cent , of corn low ln vitality . Corn husked early and stored carefully where It became thoroughly dry before cold weather , is not damaged and will cermijj + cci . vveen . uie HolstelM-, v _ - &gt; osult Jersey .

In a general way two difficulties seem to confront those who are laboring In the field of improved dairying . The first is the difficulty o £ making farmers see the advantage of dairying as a factor in diversified farming ; and the second and subsequent difficulty is that of convincing them that , once Started in dairying , it is worthy the most careful thought , the most diligent study and the most persistent effort . It would seem almost unnecessary to have to argue the value o £ dairying either as a specialty or as a branch of farming . Butter making is a fine art of agriculture . No product of the farm can be made to exhibit the skill employed in its production as readily as butter . One bushel of potatoes resembles in a great measure every other bushel , but one pound of butter made from the milk of well-bred , well-fed cows ,...
