An Appreciation of Live Stock [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

An Appreciation of Live Stock An Appreciation of Livestock IN these days we hear much about better agriculture , more permanent agriculture , better living and better homes on the farm . Our agricultural colleges have taught us that in order to supply the wants of the coming generations we have got to farm in a better manner and do something to keep up and increase the fertility of our farms and build for the future , so that when we are done with them they will be better than when we took them . As a farmer I have myself passed through all these things . From boyhood until I was of age I worked at home with my father on the farm in the extreme northern part of Illinois , and I early began to learn that it was only a matter of time until changes would have to be made . As I remember my boyhood days about the only thing we raised was wheat , oats and corn , which was nearly all sold on the market . Oftentimes the straw from the thresh PERCHERON COLTS THAT PAY ing machine was burned t...

Lime for Alfalfa [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

Lime for Alfalfa By W . W . Weir Alfalfa , no doubt , is responsible in a large measure for the revival of the practice of liming . In some sections the farmers have learned by costly experience thai without lime alfalfa is an absolute failure . Since lime is such an excellent material for alfalfa , why should there arise any misconceptions concerning its use ? If lime will help alfalfa , it will help everything else , is the argument that causes some farmers to buy lime when they don t know whether they need it or not . Then , too , there are those who are led to believe that carbonate of lime is the longlooked for magic fertilizer that will in some mysterious way restore all lost fertility . Perhaps some of these erroneous ideas are the results of unwise advertising we see round about us ; for example : Soil Fertilization . How to supply the Missing Elements in Worn Out Soils . TWO TOMS OF ALFALFA PER CUTTING AFTER LIMING Pulverized carbonate of calcium and magnesia correct sour o...

Plannirfg a Drainage System [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

Plannirfg a Drainage System The system used in drainage is of such importance that much study and attention should be given it before the actual laying of the tile takes place . Good tile drains are permanent improvements , but iv drain poorly laid is not even a temporary improvement . The first step in the construction of a drainage system . s the location of the outlet which must , of necessity , be lower than the land to be drained . Where the land is slightly rolling this is a comparatively easy matter since the general location of the slope of the field is apparent and streams or open ditches arc not difficult to reach . Draining flat areas is a different problem and involves the construction of large county ditches to furnish outlets for the tile and open surface ditches . After the outlet is located the next step is the direction of the main line of the tile . On slightly rolling land the main tile should occupy the lowest part of the field and follow the general slope as far...

There is no advantage gained by keeping three or four breeds of cattle in the same community , except the satisfaction of personal preferences , but there are many advantages to be derived from keeping one and the same breed in the same community . Probably the most important reason why the same breed of cattle should be kept in one community is that it makes for community interest . The more we can have in common as farmers the more in TTPICAL WAUKESHA GUERNSEY terest we will have in the welfare of our neighbors . Such community breeding is certain to be a sympathetic tie binding the people together in the accomplishment of anything they desire . Community team work is worth much in the improvement of any country community . In fact , it is essential . It brings strength without much effort . It teaches efficiency in th...

I ^ VBSdciQj W % « ass ^ Realizing on the Wool Crop Wool is worth good money and the returns from it may mean all the difference between a considerable loss and a snug profit from the farm flock . The fleece should be made ready for the buyer with the view to securing the greatest possible returns from its sale . The proper time for shearing sheep varies with the sheep and with the section of the country . One should be careful not to deprive the flock of its protective fleeces too soon , so that the raw wintry winds will work harm . On the other hand , to greatly delay the operation is to throw away the chance to get the most SOMEWHAT OF AN ART \ out of the wool . Nature provides the dense growth of wool as a protective measure against the weather , and it is heaviest in the winter . Left until too late the fleece begins to lose its oil and density and to grow straggly . Its life goes , too , and then the buyer is not in the mood to pay top prices . As in everything else , there is...

Am ^ WEJ ^ M [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

Am ^ WEJ ^ M Traction Ploughing Traction plowing has solved the problem of spring labor so far as preparing the seed bed is concerned , for these engines not only do the plowing , but do the disking and the harrowing as well . The work is often done much more cheaply and better than is usually done with horses . Moreover , it is done much more quickly and usually the seed bed is prepared at the right time . For one farmer to invest in a traction engine to be used only on his farm requires such a large investment that only those with enough work to keep it busy a large part of the season make the purchase . The methods of co-operation adopted by many , however , are such that the size of the investment is scarcely considered . .. . A good engine , with two men that know how to operate it to best advantage , will . l B 5 ° i p e q tl a c a t s ll DOING THE WORK OF TWENTY-ONE HORSES AND SEVEN MEN do the work on five or six good-sized farms .

Gasoline Engines For Operating : Binders [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

Gasoline Engines For Operating : Binders The gasoline engine is coming into its as a farm servant . One of the most hnportant of the new uses is to operate erain binders . Cutting and binding grain h « always been a horse-killer of a job . The binder itself is heavy enough ; pullinr . it over the soft soil is hard enough , it the real work for the team comes from the power necessary to operate the binding machinery . A few vears ago a gasoline engine on a « ain binder was a thing undeard of . Today it is a familiar sight in Canada ; ranadian farmers were quick to adopt the idea when they saw its value demonstrated . The engine does all the work of operating . Ordinarily two teams are required on the binder . With an efficient light-weight gasoline engine to operate it the number of horses is reduced to two . The extra team is available for other work . The horses simply draw the machine . All its complicated mechanism is run by the engine . The gasoline engine supplies steady even p...

The First Year the Colt Works [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

The First Year the Colt Works By PROF . EARL H . JOHNSON , Iowa College of Agriculture Training colts , like raising boys , is often ticklish business . It is easy to spoil either , yet colts like boys are quick to respond to common-sense treatment . This is especially true during the period that the farmer is getting the three-year-old ready for work . As a rule , the colt is caught up this month , often scarcely halter broken , with long , coarse coat of hair , by which nature protects him from the severe winter weather . As this thin , weak condition indicates , he has little or any grain in his ration . Some farmers favor this sort of care . It makes the colt rugged and tough , but this seems doubtful when we compare at the end of a season s work to colts that have had reasonably good care and one that has been neglected . Some successful stockmen find it more economical to supply the body heat of the colt by a good warm barn rather than by the use of feeds . Other equally compe...

ORCHARD j L • AND J GARDEN 1 [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 March 1914

ORCHARD j L • AND J GARDEN 1 Setting Out The Orchard By Prof . R . R . Jeffries The setting out of the orchard assumes you have studied over with care the many prerequisites which naturally come before the planting time . It is taken for granted that you have chosen good orchard soil and site and have purchased the best orchard trees possible to secure , bought of some reliable nurseryman , and to further insure yourself had your county advisor or some competent horticulturist examine the stock you have purchased . For convenience , planting plans for an orchard may be classified as square , rectangular , quincunx and hexagonal . These all have their advantages , but by far the larger number of orchardists use . the square system because of its simplicity . The system of planting is not as important as the distance apart the trees are set or the care exercised in setting the trees in the ground . The setting out of the stakes for the tree holes in any of SUCCESSFUL ORCHARDING DEMAND...
