BUILD IN JUNE [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 May 1903
BUILD IN JUNE A correspondent to the Stockman and Farmer says : In our last two letters we described the style of a house wo like best . We do not advise you to build such a house , or indeed any house , out of new lumber in the winter . Colds , roup and all sorts of trouble are quite sure to follow . The right time to build a new house is in June or July . Finish the framework , roofing and flooring then ; put on the three-ply tarred paper then ; give it a thorough coating of tar then . Let it stand and season during July , August and September . Begin to occupy it with your pullets in October . Give it another co : it of tar then , an additional coat of tar each year , and the house will last indefinitely .
SHIPPING EGGS FOR HATCHING . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 May 1903
SHIPPING EGGS FOR HATCHING . In discussing the packing of eggs for shipping—that is , in small quantities for hatching—a Michigan Farmer correspondent writes that he prefers a good strong basket to any other kind of package . He puts a layer of excelsior in the bottom of the basket , wraps each egg in paper , then in excelsior , and places in tlie basket small end down . When the layer is full it should be so firm that there is no moving about of the eggs with the motion of the basket . If more than one layer of eggs is used he puts a good thick layer of excelsior on top of the first layer and proceeds as before , finishing with a layer of excelsior . AVhen the basket is full he stretches stout unbleached muslin across the top and sews to the edges of the basket , drawing it light . Then he plainly labels the basket so that it will be carefully handled . He says a half bushel basket will hold fifty eggs packed in this way .
BREED OF TURKEYS . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 May 1903
BREED OF TURKEYS . A Canadian correspondent , in speaking of the matter of growing turkeys , says that the fanner should grow the breed or crop that gives the dressed turkey , Jbes . t , suited . to-your wants . They uiUer as much as do cattle , hogs or horses , and all may be suited . What suits one will not suit all , hence the demand for several breeds . My preference may not be yours . Wild turkeys are hardiest nnd dress fir-fine carcass of good quality . Bronze and Narragansetts are the largest , big boned and the heaviest for early markets , while Holland , buff , red , slate and black are medium to large in size , medium bone and good quality in flesh . Any or all may be great rangers , very domestic , or anywhere between these extremes , depending on the individual bird or strain . The turkey farmers , or the farmer or suburban resident , who essays turkey growing for profit on a market fowl finds no place for fancy exhibition slock , as a rule , and the first outlay for eit...
FARM MUST SUPPLY RANGE . [Newspaper Article] — Farm Home — 1 May 1903
FARM MUST SUPPLY RANGE . At a recent meeting of the FrancoAmerican Sheep Association , held in Detroit , Robert Gibbons , the wellknown Michigan authority , in the course of his remarks , said : At present well-bred flocks in the agricultural states arc largely maintriiiwrt to supply new blood to those of tlie great ranges and ranches of the West , and the type their owners aim to produce is such as will meet the approval of Western fiock masters and maintain the characteristics necessary iu those flocks in their present environment . AVith the change of that environment will come a change in type of sheep demanded , and also , I fully believe , in the extent of that demand , as tho stud flocks will move westward to be nearer their market , as did the great herds of beef cattle which were once features of the agricultural states from New York to Kentucky , Indiana and Michigan . Then the stud flocks in the older states will necessarily have to depend upon the demands of the states i...
