REINDEER FOR AT . AHTV-A . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
REINDEER FOR AT . AHTV-A . OUR leaders will recalfour reference a - short time ago to the effort being made to secure reindeer for Alaska . In furtherance of that object the Secretary , of the Interior has approved and forwarded to Congress the recommendation of the Commissioner of Education that the sum of $ 45 , 000 should be appropriated the present year for the purchase of reindeer ,, the same to be furnished by the lowest bidder and- delivered at suitable points on the Alaskan coast . Fifteen hundred to . 2000 reindeer would it isi-thought , be secured by this sum Added to the-900 or more deer already in the herd kept at Port Clarence , near tiering strait , there will be a stock of 2500 or niore . The natural increase of a herd of reindeer , judging from the experience of the last four years in Alaska , amounts to . upward of 50 per cent increase of the entire herd . With 3000 reindeer the annual increase would be at least 1500 , and the bureau of education could distribute in...
EARLY . MATURITY IMPORTANT [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
EARLY . MATURITY IMPORTANT A T a Wisconsin institute a sheep breed- *»¦ er expressed his views on breeding sheep for mutton , and said among other things : . . The . most important thing perhaps for us to consider is the value of the lamb as an animal that shall mature early . Now we understand the . difference there seems to be between ; the product of mutton as it goes onto the market that is immature , and the value of it as mature . The same relation exists in a carcass of mutton that exists in fruit as to whether it is ripe or green . One of the great detriments to . the mutton market in America is we have been putting so much green stuff on the market for people to consume . This has come about-from the fact that we have been producing mutton from a breed of sheep that were adapted to grow wool . There is not anything that is consumed as food that gives us any more satisfaction that the fine mutton . lamb , and the only reason that it is not a popular meat is because the peopl...
FATTENING LAMBS . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
FATTENING LAMBS . For fattening lambs Prof . Roberts gives the following ration in the Rural New Yorker : Cornmeal should form in connection with the other foods mentioned , one-third of the . grain ration . Cornmeal , 100 pounds ; wheat bran , 100 pounds ; oil meal , 20 pounds ; peas , 30 pounds ; oats , 50 pounds . Mix and feed from one-half to one pound per day per lamb . This will do when shredded corn stalks are used , but when clover is fed there should be a greater proportion of corn , and less of oats and peas . If one feed is of shredded corn and one of clover each day then the corn should not be increased and the oats and peas diminished as much as when clover is fed exclusively . Sheep do not relish wheat as well as the other grains , either whole or ground . Better feed the wheat to the chickens . The grain alone would give a nutritive ratio of- one to five and five-tenths . The shredded corn fodder would widen it possibly tq one to six or one to six and five-tenths ! It...

CROSS-BREEDING . [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
CROSS-BREEDING . O PINIONS of A Crank , in . a Country Gentleman : It is strange that few in discussing this question give any practical views of what they have done ,, or what their observations may warrant . While my experience has been limited , it may be of value to those who are at work &lt;&gt; n this line . In an endeavor to improve the native •cows which were to some extent graded with Ayrshires , say one-quarter , a Jersey Ibull was used . This was continued on the produce , always using a good sire , and not inbreeding . - Up to . the . three-fourths and seven-eighths cross ) every generation was an improvement in style and producing qualities ; but thereafter our hopes ¦ were shattered , although each succeeding generation was superior to the . last . Tnis was continued until- the cross was 127128 ths , when , a positive failure resulting , it was stopped , and registered Guernseys substituted , which change has never been regretted .. One cow in particula...

AMONG HORSEMEN [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
AMONG HORSEMEN AN TERROR IN HORSE BREEDING . IT is the opinion _ of the Homestead that the depression which has existed in horse breeding for the past three or four years will presently disappear ., With the resumption of work , the light of experience in the past should be consulted in order to avoid past mistakes . One of the serious mistakes was made in the breeding of draft horses by a great many farmers , and care should be taken to avoid it in the future . The mistake referred to was this : Many farmers bred good sized , native mares to good sires of one of the draft breeds . The colts resulting from this mating were of good quality , and for the time , of good weight ; that is to say , they were much better in size and weight than we had been in the habit of seeing from ordinary farm breeding . Indeed they were so much better that farmers thought they were good enough for any possible future demand , and tempted by good prices they parted with the colts regardless of sex , re...

Farm * Garden , and Orchard [Newspaper Article] — Western Rural and Livestock Weekly — 5 March 1896
Farm * Garden , and Orchard MULCHING . IT is the general opinion that by mulching heavily around a fruit tree when the ground is frozen , the flowering , and consequently the ripening season can be controlled . Now let us look . at the conditions necessary for vegetable growth and then apply those facts to the case in hand , says Wallace s Farmer . ; The essential conditions for vegetable growth are a supply of assimilated matter ^ free oxygen in contact with the plain :, and ., a proper temperature . In common parlance we speak of a tree ripening its wood in the fall , which is simply saying that it stores elaborated food , mainly starch , in its body for future use . In spring when the required degree of temperature is reached , the buds begin to develop by appropriating for their immediate use the starch held in store since the preceding fall . This takes place regardless of whether the roots are kept dormant or not . If , however , the roots are kept dormant while the buds are l...
