J ^ i ^^ s _ . [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

J ^ i ^^ s _ . Computing Rations For Dairy Cattle Professor L . S . Corbett , Maine , College of Agriculture To become a good feeder requires a knowledge of the needs of the dairy cow and of the nature of the different feeds . The question most commonly asked is , What is the best feed for dairy cows ? This question may seem simple and easy to answer , but it is really quite difficult . No short , definite rule can be given which will serve as a guide under all conditions , nor can a ration be given which will apply in all cases . Therefore it is wise for the feeder to understand the methods by which he can work out these problems for himself . In most cases the largest direct expense for running a dairy herd is for feed . Everyone familiar with the prevailing conditions knows a large amount of feed is used without producing the returns it THE FOUNDATION OF A PROFITABLE HERD should . It would be safe to say that the average yearly milk production per cow could be increased one-half ...

feTVraSTOfejg [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

feTVraSTOfejg Spring Management of the Work Horse By Prof . J . 6 . Fuller , Wisconsin College of Agriculture At this season it behooves every farmer to see that the work horses are given the very best of care during the continuance of the spring work in order that they may stand up under it without their health and future usefulness being endangered . The farmer should know just about how much spring work demands of his horses and early provide himself with horses sufficient for his tasks . He should select a type of horse suited to his work . If he has a farm of heavy soil and is producing cultivated crops , large and strong draft horses will be most essential . On a small dairy farm , where much produce and feed has to be hauled to and from the farm , a smaller and more active type of horse will be the most useful . Whatever the type of horse or horse work to be done , do not put him into hard work without some preparation . Work horses being kept over winter on READY FOR WHAT TH...

ATX i ^ yr ^ s ^ rlter Final Preparation of the Seed Corn Every grower should now spend a day or more getting his seed corn entirely ready for planting . Of course the germination test has been given and the ears are now ready for discarding , nubbing , classifying , shelling and the testing of accuracy in the drop of the corn planter . , The quality and productiveness of tne seed supply can now be improved by discarding the poor ears and poor kernels . The seed corn should be as dry as a bone . Among the ears that appeared desirable last fall some undesirable ones will be found . Discard . any that have discolored kernels or cob or have dead appearance : discard any that are light INSPECTING KERNELS OF INDIVIDUAL EARS in weight and any with kernels that are small sized with germs of poor development and appearance .

• ORCHARD I AND r PARPEN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

• ORCHARD I AND r PARPEN Small Froits and Their Management Prof . E . F . H-tchi- _ s , Msine College of Agriculture There is no excuse for a man , who owns a half acre of land , in not growing enough small fruit to supply his family with choice berries throughout the season . Fruits are a necessity , not a luxury , from the standpoint of ideal conditions of health , and should be on the table in every home . A few rods of land will produce bushels of choice fruit , if properly cared for . A small bed of strawberries , a few short rows of raspberries , a half dozen currant and gooseberry bushes will yield a rich harvest of lucious berries . We will discuss the proposition on a larger scale : Selection of a Site—For ideal conditions we would prefer a gentle slope to the east or southeast , although for some fruits like the raspberry and blackberry , a northeast or even northerly slope would not be objectionable .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 April 1914

When the Hens Begin to Lay Yes , we very well remember When the snow began to thaw , And we stood beside the saw-buck , With a newly sharpened saw , Working hard , when of a sudden , There arose a fearful din , As we dropped the saw and hastened To the henhouse and within Saw the rooster on the nest-walk , And the hens on nests of hay , And we knew the time was with us When the hens begin to lay . WHEN THE HENS BEGIN TO LAY For the Young and Growing Chicks Feed moist mash sparingly . Avoid damp and soiled litter . Disinfect brooders frequently . Test all beef scrap before feeding . Feed only sweet , wholesome foods . Keep dry mash always before them . Have fresh , clean water always available . Give grass range or plenty of green food . Provide fine grit , charcoal , shell , and bone from the s . tart .
