Those green fields lying like emerald lakes , in the gray and barren scenery of those mountain valleys are still fixed firm in memory . Our company s general agent in Denver was Henry Lee , a large seed merchant and to him I talked , I fear , more about alfalfa than what concerned our implement business . I was born on a farm in Northern Illinois and was thinking constantly of the farm lands of the middle west which were giving a grudging yield of clover and timothy . I wondered why the wonderful forage , then known , mostly , as Lucerne grass would not thrive here . Mr . Lee assured me it was ...

How Interest Rates May Be Reduced [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914

How Interest Rates May Be Reduced J . H . Went , President N . D . Agricultural College There is no question that if farS-Mfe were to engage more largely in dairying and raising live stock , and were to farm their land more scientifically , the rates of interest they are required to pay the banks should be materially lowered . Why , do you ask ? Because certainty of receiving prompt payment when principal and interest are due , to a very large extent , determines the rate of interest As a matter of fact , there is not much charity in matters of a purely business character . Even should some new banking system be devised , a banking system calculated to benefit the farmer by furnishing him with cheap money , yet money must be safe before it will become cheap . Good farming offers reasonable assurance of profitable crops . If . all farmers were good farmers , the crops would be more likely to ; prove profitable than where many of them are careless , or rather where they undertake to f...

Planning a Farm Power Plant [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914

Planning a Farm Power Plant By Prof . L W . Dickerson , Illinois College of Agriculture . The purpose of the farm power plant is to take care under a single roof of the various power operations which usually are scattered at various places about the farm . This will allow the farmer to make the gasoline engine do a good part of his drudgery , such as pumping , grinding and crushing , and to devote a greater amount of his energy to planning and superintending his work . In planning such a farm power plant for a farm of 160 acres , the farmer must consider carefully such things as kind and amount of farm operations carried on , nearness to market and repair shop , quality and quantity of labor carried on , conveniences installed , location of buildings and wells , fuel supply , and probable amount of custom work for neighbors , but this amount of custom work must not be understood . It will be assumed in this case that the owner lives on the farm , is engaged in general grain and live...

THZKE >® M : JMnnr [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914

THZKE &amp;gt;® M : JMnnr Turning Out to Pasture By Prof . P . L . Roberts , Purdue Afri . College All dairymen welcome the time when the cows can be turned out on pasture , for it is then that the largest and best results are expected from each animal and the labor and expense connected with winter feeding are done away with . Pasture is a term which means various things . It may mean the old virgin fields which have been allowed to remain in native grasses from year to year without any attempt at improvement through cultivation or rotation of better forage plants , or , it may mean the more succulent and nutritious crops of alfalfa , cowpeas , clovers , soybeans , AT MILKING TIME oats , rye , corn and other similar forage plants . The amount of forage produced by native grasses is very small and if the price of land , is high , it is poor economy to allow the soil to lay idle , since by a proper system of rotation , the production of feed material can be increased from ten to ...

Dairying For Profit and Pleasure ( Concluded from page 5 . ) [Newspaper Article] — Better Farming — 1 May 1914

Dairying For Profit and Pleasure ( Concluded from page 5 . ) be all through by seven . Deduct two hours for meals and you will find that we have actually put in 12 hours of work . Those who know anything about farm work will agree that 12 hours of that kind of work is preferable to 10 hours of ordinary factory work . This habit of moving around as many hours as possible out of each 24 has , I think , been handed down to us from the days of exclusive grainfarming when the farmer hired his help in the spring for a term of eight months and , consequently , tried to make them work as nearly every hour of those eight months as was possible . In this era of dairy farming we have no period of four or five months in which to rest and store up energy for the coming months of continuous toil , hence the necessity of arranging our work so that we have time for rest and recreation each 24 hours . We are engaged in an entirely different occupation from the old one . One that requires work every ...

Frank -Qeinhelnz , Wisconsin College oi Agriculture The sheep is one of the most valuable animals on a farm if properly handled . It is an economic producer , with its wool clothing us and with its meat feeding us . A person engaging in sheep husbandry must first of all like sheep . Anyone who dislikes them is likely not to give them their proper care and feed , which naturally results in failure , or at least , small profits . To be successful with sheep , the flockowner must not hold the common idea that sheep can live and do well on little and the poorest kind of feed . They need their share of feed as well as other classes of stock . If he thinks a flock of sheep VISIT THE FLOCK FREQUENTLY can be wintered on what they find from a straw-stack , and be profitable to their owner , he is mistaken . If he does not supply them with any kind of succulent feed in winter , and tries to feed them on pure...
