Lamb Feeding in Colorado [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
Lamb Feeding in Colorado We regret that during our recent trip to the mountains we were not able to visit Ft Collins and gather for the information of our readers the exact data with reference to feeding lambs at that point which has become famous the nation over as a center for feeding lambs on alfalfa . We are indebted , however , to the Denver Field and Farm for the following data with reference to sheep production in that country , and we give it to our readers as something which interests them , and especially those who are feeding lambs in competition with the Western sheep . The cost for ranging , that is , keeping sheep on the range , is given by the Field and Farm at from 30 c to 80 c per year , and the return is a fleece worth from 50 c to 80 c and a Iamb worth $ 1 . 50 to $ 2 . 25 . The wether lamb is usually sold in the fall . The ewes are kept until five or six years of age . The fatter sheep go to the Eastern markets , while the poorer grades are sold for local consump...

The Farmer and the Pooling Bill . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
The Farmer and the Pooling Bill . When we began in our first issue of this year a series of articles on the pooling bills now before Congress for several years , we had little hope of seeing the granger —that is , the farmer who attends to his own business and has no political aspirations—so fully aroused as he is at this moment . The policy of silence had been maintained so long and so successfully , not merely by the political papers but by the agricultural press as well , that we feared we were speaking to deaf ears and to a sleepy , if not a sleeping , audience . We proceeded , however , in the faith of the old prophets that there is always a remnant according to the election of grace whose ears are open to the truth , and hoped that in perhaps a year we could secure the attention that the pressing necessities of the case demand at once . In all this we have been most happily disappointed . The response for which we hoped has come quick and full and strong . The whole state is m...
New Principle in Shoe Drills , [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
New Principle in Shoe Drills , You farmers who are users of shoe drlTs let us ask yon what part of your drill is the first to wear out ! In a majority of all eases the answer will be the shoe . Uince tbis is true why do you not bethink you to seak or buy that drill which has a shoe constructed on a principle that makes it practically as durable and as long lived as the other parts of the drill ? Yon say they cannot be had ? Oh , yes , rh » y can , and we illustrate one such herewith . The cut hero shown Is that of the Van Brunt Shoe Drill made by the Van Brunt &amp; Wilkins Mfg . Co ., of Horlcon , Wis . In addition to being a high-class drill in every particular , and adapted to the sowing of all kinds of grain , it excels in the fact that it has the only special sheaved reinforced steel shoe we know of . This shoe , instead of being made like the ordinary sho « of two plates of steel of even thickness welded together and drawn down to a fine edge , is made from specially p...

Shipping Cattle—No . 3 . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
Shipping Cattle—No . 3 . ro W ALLA—•• rixa-xa . The importance of having cattle ride in comfort when en route to market , and at the same time arrive at destination with dry sides and hips , giving no indication of scouring , cannot be overestimated , and no pains should be spared to put the cattle in the very best possible condition for the journey before it is commenced . Thin , gaunt cattle , with all the marks of scouring , while en route , do not prove attractive to the eye of the buyer , and cattle in this condition will neither eat nor drink as well as if properly cared for , and neither will the price realized be as good as if opposite conditions prevailed . The pernicious habit of giving salt to cattle before shipping cannot be too strongly condemned , for aside from the torture to the animal from thirst while on the journey , the salt acts as a laxative and at times a violent purgative , defeating the very object sought to be attained . In preparing cattle for shipment , m...

The Flock at Lambing Time . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
The Flock at Lambing Time . To W __—as r—uanv Where winter Iambs are raised lambing time is near at band and I want to offer a few suggestions for tbe benefit of tbose inexperienced in tbe business . First , make several small pens in tbe sheep barn by making hurdles of four inch fencing four boards to the panel ; bave them about three feet high and ten feet long ; sixteen foot lumber will make bne side and one end . Set stakes about six feet from the wall of the barn to hold the panel in place , divide in the middle and you have two pens ; have the ends so arranged that they can be removed readily to let the sheep go in and out . Several such pens will be needed if the flock is large . When a ewe is noticed about ready to lamb if she is in the yard put her in a pen ; then if she has twins the first one dropped cant get away from its mother before she can care for it , as they sometimes disown them if they get cold before getting dry . Have the sheep shears convenient and clip the w...
How I Have Grown Potatoes Most Successfully . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
How I Have Grown Potatoes Most Successfully . r- w » i » « *¦» --r . B ** a — I much prefer fall plowingfor the reason that it is susceptible of being put in much-finer tilth than spring , is also freer from trash , and can be planted usually a little sooner . I first cultivate or harrow , or better both , mark out one way as near three feet as possible with a single shovel plow , run deep , or better still , go twice to the row . I plant one piece about every fifteen inches , stepping on the same that all parts of seed may come in contact with the fine , soft , moist earth that it may the more easily receive nourishment . I- cover with an ordinary corn cultivator . In a few days , say a week , depending on circumstances , I harrow , harrow so often and long that all the weeds are killed , or better still , prevented from starting , even if it appears to destroy some of the potatoes . When I am sure they are too large to harrow , I cultivate with an ordinary corn cultivator , eagle ...
Cause of Failures . [Newspaper Article] — Wallace's Farmer — 25 February 1898
Cause of Failures . ro WAI _ * . G _&gt; * - __ &lt; B . In your issue of January 21 , in answer to a Nebraska correspondent under the title of Causes of Farm Failures , you say , among other things : Insufllcient capital and lack of proper methods . That includes a great deal . It did last season in this vicinity . Much of the land here is rented , and land is nearly all the same ; mostly rented for cash . Some will pay their rent and have more grain left than others raised altogether . Some , crops will scarcely pay the rent , and those invariably are the ones who have to sell when they ought not , and are nearly always in the position of the fellow who tries to catch and hold a pig with a short tail . A great many do not stop to figure that a one and a half cent rise on 15 cent oats or corn in ninety days , is 40 per cent per annum on money , sixty days is 60 per cent , thirty days is 120 per cent per annum on money , and a three cent rise would be just double tha...
