Making More Milk [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

Making More Milk Am I going to do as well with my cows as I ought ? Am I producing milk as economically as I might ? Is it possible with such , feed as silage my cows may be kept in a more healthful condition because this feed having in it the natural juices make it more easily digested and a cow is able to do more work and better work ? Many farmers who nave recently built silos and many who did not build , are asking themselves the above questions , and well they may . Those who have built and have good silage are now getting their eyes opened , and those that have no silos are now beginning to see the handwriting on the wall . A natural feed of this character which has the natural juices all retained in it keeps the digestive organs of the animal in a cool , laxative condition and permits us to feed more heavily of the other feeds , and thus , we are able to increase her capacity for producing milk in a far greater degree . Experience has taught me many things about the silo . Wh...

Im just going to quit milking for fun ! B . —Well , how s that ? A . —These cows are eating their heads off ! B . —They are , eh ? But how do you know ? A . —I just weigh and test the milk from the herd and keep a record .

FSr ^ BiSTOfem [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

FSr ^ BiSTOfem Care of the Sow for Spring Litters On account of the high prices of hogs it will pay all who have brood sows to take the best of care of them this spring , if they expect to share in the profits in pork later in the year . I find it pays to begin to fatten the sow the least bit when ready to breed her , and to continue to keep her in a thrifty condition while car WARM MEALS AT ALL HOURS rying her litter , if large , healthy litters are expected . It is not a good thing to allow more than five or six sows to sleep in one cot or house while they are carrying pigs , and a few weeks before they are due to farrow I put them in separate pens with a house for each sow . This pays during the spring months , and one should be particular that the bedding for the sow does not get too wet or filthy . It should be changed whenever it becomes damp and dirty . Brood sows should have access to a bluegrass pasture or fall-sown rye in the spring , if possible . It is a fine thing to le...

Open Shed Feeding of Cattle [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

Open Shed Feeding of Cattle There has been some difference of opinion among cattle feeders as to the relative merits of open shed feeding and feeding in enclosed quarters . Some of the leading experiment stations of the country have recently conducted experiments along this line . At the Missouri station steers fed in a-barn made a daily gam of 1 . 7 pounds , while another lot of the same age and breedfed in an open shed made a daily gain of 1 . 9 pounds . The same lots of steers gained 52 pounds daily for each bushel < of corn when fed in an open shed and only . 4 . 9 pounds when fed in the barn . The steers fed in the open shed ate } 0 . 3 ; pdunds of digestible matter per pound of gain , while the barn-fed steers ate . lli-3 pounds of digestible matter per pound .-: At the , Pennsylvania station a comparison of barn and open shed feeding has &&* fed in the barn was $ 11 . 05 .

A Concrete Smoke House for $ 65 . 00 [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

A Concrete Smoke House for $ 65 . 00 PROF . C . F . CHASE . North Dakota Agricultural College Some years ago when all farmers understood butchering and the curing of meats , few of them were without a smoke house and a meat storing room of some kind . Upon the advent of the centralized plant or packing house , a great majority of our farmers have lost this art . With the present market value of fat stock and the high price of cured meats it is easily profitable for farmers to cure meats for home use or even for the local trade . ^^ ^ One of the essentials for good meats is a properly designed smoke house . This should be a fireproof building . The accompanying figure shows plans of a con 6 Q 0 bf . sheatmng . „( Set studs for the forms 2 inches on centers , wiring at middle , making a 4inch span . ) SOE SECTION crete structure about the proper size for an average farm .

ORCHARD , AND j GARDEN * [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

ORCHARD , AND j GARDEN * Spraying for Better Fruit Where are the orchards of yester year ? Gone to the devilish fruit-tree pests . Why do we allow our farm orchards to decay and go to ruin ? It is because we do not bestir ourselves and spray . Who of us does not remember about the orchards which used to adorn almost every farmstead , and each autumn yield up its bounteous store of luscious fruit to the cider mill , the huge preserving kettles , the storage cellar and even ( in years of overabundance ) to the pig pens . It seemed that planting the trees was about all that was necessary . They grew and bore profusely . Rut now there is a change , the pests have come—San Jose scale , codling moths , OUT AFTER THE CODDLING MOTH borers , curculios , blights , rots and innumerable fruit-tree enemies . They have come into our orchards and most of us have surrendered , as if there was nothing that could be done . What a fallacy ! It was inevitable that the bugs and their allies would come a...

Starting a Fanner s e £ s . T-iVirai-ir The modern minister , doctor or lawyer W 0 uld not think of trying to practice his profession without the text books and professional bulletins that his library affords nor , could the engineer , the manufacturer or merchant do as good work without the help of previous experience of others , largely found in books . Just as valuable as law books to the lawyer are the works on agriculture to the modern farmer . , It is easy with a little work and a very little expense to start a library , especially on the professional side . The Federal eovernment , the State and numerous other Sources and private correspondents issue nublications of great value to those who will gather and use them . Then there is Ihe great agricultural press , whose publications are very moderate in price . Good books can be purchased m plain , but substantial bindings , at a fractional part of their cost some years ago and a few more expensive volumes purchased from time to...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 February 1914

Better Poultry The poultryman who was disappointed in the results of his work last season has been taught a lesson that v , ill prove valuable to him unless he is one of those who blunder along year after year trusting to luck and heedless of the lessons that his errors of the past ought to teach him . Josh Billings says that Success does not consist in not making mistakes , but in not making the same mistake twice . The poultryman who goes on year after year with his fowls in a haphaz MATED FOR SPRING HATCHING ard way , regardless of the laws of nature or reproduction , and is too careless or shiftless or lazy or all combined lo spend a little time in obtaining knowledge that would put him on the right track can not expect any better results than he had last year . Every one should strive to do a little better each year . The thats good enough fellow never cuts much figure in the poultry world , but the fellow who strives each year to get his fowls a little closer to perfection is ...

r TT—war — ^ THEJ ^^ OJJSBWFE Some Short-Cuts to Better Housekeeping By A Domestic Scientist , Who Knows Every woman cannot afford to have all the latest labor-saving devices that are sold on the market and as the problem of each household is so vastly different , it is hard to formulate rules that could apply to all , yet the woman who thinks and knows how to make her brains save her heels needs only to learn of suggestions and she will solve her own problems by applying only those best suited to her use . Orderliness , a place for everything and everything in its place is the keynote to easy housekeeping and the mother of conveniences . A surprising amount of time and energy is wasted by not having a convenient arrangement of the most trivial things . If one day would be set apart and spent in the rearrangement of these things many steps would be saved in the days that follow in the days round of the good housewife s work . For instance , how often time is wasted by opening and cl...
