Practical Cattle Feeding [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

Practical Cattle Feeding By J . G . Imboden . I TRUST what I may say in this article may be of profit to the small farmer and feeder , as well as to the larger grower , and producer qf beef . ¦ The question is now asked by the breed- ; er , feeder , butcher and consumer , Where is our future supply of cattle to come from ? ¦ My answer is ,- They must be Med and raised ; they are not alive to-day . The number of cattle in this country to-day is less in proportion to population than for many years , and we will certainly see cattle scarcer and higher in the next few years . , No farmer can afford , to breed or grow a common calf . Do not do it . . If you cannot raise but one or two calves each year , have , good ones . Do not pay for or accept the service of a mean bull . Better pay $ 5 for the service of a good one for each calf . I know the question arises , Will it pay to keep cows to raise calves on our highpriced lands ? The wastage on our farms is great , and could be put to pro...

own experience and my observation , and knowledge gained from others . : FEEDING SHOOK CORN . : [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

own experience and my observation , and knowledge gained from others . : FEEDING SHOOK CORN . : I WISH to pay my respects to shock corn A by saying that I believe it is the best single feed on which to fatten a bunch pf cattle , and when fed under coyer with plenty of hogs followirig , it is an ; econbriiicol way to feed , but without hogs , it is an extravagant way , especially if the cattle are young and the corn big . The man whois afraid of work wont much enjoy f eedirig a large burich of cattle through ? the winter entirely on shock corn . . While a great believer in the merits of shock corn , I believe that cattle fattened entirely on it will sometimes eat , too much , fodder for the best results . I know riiariy good feeders will not agree with me in this , and among them ismy friend Mr : Samuel Weaver . Mr . Weaver is the closest observer of ; animal lifd : in all its . forms of any man I ever knew . He notes their habits , their likes and dislikes ,, and seems to forget not...

Grundy's Practical Ideas [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

Grundys Practical Ideas L AST winter I received quite a number of letters from farmers stating » that they were not getting-any eggs and wanting to know what was the reason . As spring opened up a large number wrote me asking if my fowls were a laying strain . They wanted a variety of fowls that would lay in winter . They had tried this , that and the other variety , and all mixed , and they still failed to get eggs when they were worth money . Most of them had heard or read that there were laying strains of several different varieties , and they thought that if they could only procure a start of such a strain they would get some winter layers . When I informed them that my hens layed the year around , and that almost any variety , would do the same thing If properly fed and cared for . many of them seemed incredulous , and several orders intended for me went elsewhere . I showed a poultry breeder a pen of 21 hens and told him that every one of them was laying , yet if I so desired ...

The * Bacon Pig . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

The * Bacon Pig . By ; Prof ;; Thomas Shaw . - THE cry has gone Up froiri . nearly all parts of the land against the bacon pig . Andi nowhere has that cry been so loud or so fierce as in the corn belt , that place above all others where the bacon pig would help to bring healing to the great source of , disease which is preying so heavily upon the swine in so many parts of the country . It is not the . first time , however , that men have been found resisting what would bring them greatbenefit whenthe attempt was being made to help them . . The history of , vaccination to prevent the smallpox will furnish an instance to sustain ; the statement just made . Men have positively resisted vaccination aid Its , introduction into communities in which , it . has since wrought untold benefit . But V these were communities in which dense ignorance prevailed . In : that respect they were very unlike the intelligent men who are kicking so hard against the introduction of the bacon pig . And this...

United States Agricultural Ma -chinery in Scotland [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

United States Agricultural Machinery in Scotland By Consul Rufus Fleming . A MERICAN-MADE agricultural machinery is-widely used on the farms in Scotland . Most kinds of machinery for farm purposes manufactured in the United States have long been preferred by farmers here on account of price , quality and . design . While the obvious merits of their machines have been the essential recommendation , it is nevertheless true thai American manufacturers in this line have obtained the market by the readiness with which they met the special requirements of the Scotch farmer . ! : They adapted their machinery to the market . I refer to Scotland in- particular , but the same thing may be said generally of the United Kingdom . * * * THE old-style American reaper or harvester cut on the right side . This did not suit the Scotch farmer ; he wanted a machine that cut oni the left side . Therefore ,. he would not buy the American machine , and the English-made reaper was practically without a com...

T ; JJ [ Fertilizing for Profit • [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

T ; JJ [ Fertilizing for Profit • By Bryan Tyson . I NSTEAD of applying fertilizers to crops direct , they should be applied to some suitable crop of the legume family , such asclover or cow-peas , and these turned under at maturity . Then follow with ¦ corn , wheat , or other desired crops . . Some ; months , back I saw an article ini a papeivthat a farmer by turning under three ¦ crops of pea . vines increased the yield of wheat from seven bushelsi per acre to twenty-one bushels . Another farmer had some worn land that produced eight bushels of corn ; , per acre . By growing and turning under several crops of clover , he increased the yield to sixty bushels . At first glance ft would . seem impossible that said . crops , turned under , can virtually return fertility to the soil Vastly in excess of trie quantity • drawn therefrom , but such is the ! case ,. owing to the fact that plants of the legume -family do not require nitrogenous , or perfect , fertilizers , at least to a very...

Alfalfa in Southwestern Nebraska Bv . Uncle Billy Coleman . [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

Alfalfa in Southwestern Nebraska Bv . Uncle Billy Coleman . OUT here in Red Willow county , alfalfa makes three to four crops . of hay every year . If each crop is cut as soon as it is ready , it will yield four crops every season . I have seen fields yield four crops of hay and then be pastured six weeks in the . fall . The driest season ever known here was 1884 / and it was cut three to four times that year , without irrigation and almost without rain . I . commenced farming oyer fifty years ago , and have kept at it ever since , and I dont know of a . crop of . any kind that-is , so sure of a crop every year as alfalfa is here on bottom land . Some farmers have 100 to 300 acres in alfalfa , and one has 800 acres in . It furnishes a large amount of feed per acre . Twenty acres was cut twice and then kept sixty-seven head of three-year-old steers the balance of the season ; and this was the fearful drouth year of 1894 . A patch of fifteen acres was cut twice , and then kept forty-s...

The Private Dairy Best [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

The Private Dairy Best By P . W . Moseley . A J . BENEDICT has a farm of 340 acres In Kenosha County , Wiscon- • sin . He is a thorough and successful farmer , an enthusiastic breeder of improved live , stock . He is also a dairy 7 man . For many years Mr . Benedict converted his milk into butter in his own dairy house , and , being progressive , he was one of the first , if not the first , to put in Improvements for cream raising and butter making . A few years ago a butter factory was started in his locality , and later also a milk train for Chicago . I conclude from remarks in a letter received from Mr . Benedict that he has been through the mill in both enterprises and is now satisfied to return to private dairy butter making and that he thinks a portable creamery and the Swedish system of cream raising is good enough for him . This is what he writes : I think , and do know by bitter experience that taking milk off the farm has been a great curse to all farmers . This has been b...

American Butter in Cape Colony [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

American Butter in Cape Colony IN my recent report on butter , I called attention to the large quantities imported into South Africa from Australia andi Denmark , and offered ; advice as to the preparation and packing of American butter . I am Informed tliat within the last two months from 3 , 000 to 4 , 000 boxes ( of fifty-six pounds ) -fromv America have reached this city through London . This was shipped here , as Australian , butter , all the American marks on . the boxes having geen erased and Australian ? marks substituted . By this means-all credit to the products of the American producers is lost , and this action is prima . facie evidence that the American- : butter is , now satisfactory , although complaint is stillmade that it , is too yellow .. Other shipments of V butter , to the amount 6 t several thousand pounds , have been , recently received direct from America with the American marks thereon .

The Cow's Complaint [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898

The Cows Complaint BUDDHIST priests are constantly active in- China ,- Japant and other eastern countries , making and circulating tracts and leaflets condemning the use of-flesh food and inculcating the principles of kindness to animals .- One of these missionary priests a few years ago wrote and circulated very widely at his own expense , a poem- entitled , The Cow s Complaint , for an English translation of which . we are indebted to a medical friend in China , and from which we quote the following stanzas : - - Despite : my long and useful life They : give me to . the . butcher s knife . He ties me up without a tear , And cuts my throat from ear to ear . My mouth Is dumb , unformed for cries . But hot tears glisten in my . eyes . ¦; Soon all -my luckless flesh and bone . Ungrateful mortals fatten on . My murderers shall , come to grief , Along with all who relish beef ; When Im a man and you a cow ; Ill , treat you as you treat : me now . —J . H .
