THE SHEAF . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

THE SHEAF . THE Messrs . Hamilton met with unfavorable weather at their sale ol Shorthorns at Dexter Park . Bad weathsr always has a bad effect upon a public sale . Prices were not as high as the previous day at the sale of the Bow Park herd , yet some of the animals brought good figures . The highest price was $ 1 , 300 , to Mr . Seth E . Ward , of . Westport , Mo ., for the Rose of Sharon cow , Rosebud the Seventh ; the next , highest was Geneva Belle , a straight Young Mary , to Senator John S . Williams , of Kentucky , at $ 725 ; the the next , to same party , for $ 680 , was a Ruby Duchess , Bell Bates . Several more of the Young Mary and Josephine famir lies sold for from $ 400 to $ 500 .

AGRICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

AGRICULTURAL . A CHAT WITH CORRESPONDENTS AND READERS . PROF . CYRUS THOMAS , of Uarbondale , 111 ., desires us to say to our readers that , as numerous applications are coming in for his paper on the chinch bug—Bulletin No . 5 , U . 8 . Entomological Commission—that the flrst edition is exhausted , but Congress has ordered a second edition . Parties , therefore , desiring copies may obtain them by writing to their respective members of Congress . A CORRESPONDENT at Erie , 111 ., informs M . Reisenberger that he has for live years used a sorghum pan that he had made from heavy galvanized sheet iron . He finds it to work well . Z , C . CLAYTON asks for a : good recipe for packing eggs . There are many ways recommended . The idea on which they are all based is to keep the temperature so low that decomposition of the fluids shall not take place , and at the same time exclude the air from the shell so that the oxygen can not act upon the contents . A preparation once patented was made i...

HORTICULTURAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

HORTICULTURAL . AMERICAN VINES IN FRANCE . The following letter addressed by M . Jullian , fils of Ville-neuve-les Maquelone , which we translate from a recent number of La Vigne Americaine , will serve to show the appreciation in which our vines are held in France , and more particularly the value of the Taylor as a stock for those vines which are susceptible to phylloxera . In October , 1874 , I had cleared , good and bad together , a piece of land over four acres in extent , skirting the road to Mireval . In January , 1875 , that is to say , three months later , without having the soil plowed or broken , I replanted it to American cuttings of Taylor . My returns were 95 per cent . I took the precaution to set about twenty French cuttings in amongst the American . By the third year every French cutting had disappeared , while the Taylor is in splendid condition to-day , having victoriously defied the attacks of phylloxera . This fact might have been noted by any number of visitors...

ENTOMOLOGICAL . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

ENTOMOLOGICAL . FLOWERS AND THEIR FRIENDS . The relations of flowers to insects have attracted in recent years the attention of scientific men , and . they prove to be most interesting . Those relations appear to be based upon a few simple facts , such as the following : Many flowers depend for their propagation upon the visits of insects , which carry the fertilizing pollen-grains of one flower to another . Many , without being absolutely dependent , are improved —that is to say , the resulting plants are improved—by such transferance of the pollen . Insects visit flowers in pursuit of honey ; color , form , and scent guide the movements of the insect . We can not here trace out in detail all the results of these principles , which may be read in St . John Lubbuck s Scientific Addresses and elsewhere . The object of the present paper is chiefly to suggest some general reflections on the subject . Now , without pronouncing upon the vexed question of evolution , without asserting the...

THE DAIRY . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

THE DAIRY . THE MILK ROOM . The milk room must be cool , airy , and dry , wherefore it has the best situation on the north side of the dairy building . If this can not be taken , an east or a western aspect must be chosen ; but it ought never to be exposed to the south , as it will be almost impossible to keep it cool . It it is impossible to place the milk-room or cellar in the shade , it ought to be at least protected by a projecting roof , and by partly filling up the space between the ceiling and the root with saw-dust , or some other non-conductor of heat . To keep the milk-room also airy and dry some other points have to be observed . A low room or cellar which is kept cool and screened from the sun is very often damp and musty : also mould appears frequently there . We must , therefore , counteract these influences by giving the milk-room a sufficient height ; 3 , 31 , and even 4 yards , are to be wished for . Forthe same reasons the milk-rooms are made large , and space is g...

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 14 . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

AMERICAN FARM ANIMALS . —No . 14 . SELECTING A BREED . —Continued . Fashion has much influence in this as in other matters . Oftentimes much injury has been done to the live stock of a community by the general introduction of some breed not well suited to the wants of the farmers of the locality , but which gets a temporary popularity , perhaps because of its deserved good reputation in some other region for which it is well suited . When the injury has beer ! doni ^ in such cases , it will frequently be found that the class of animals formerly bred was much better adapted for the special wants of the community than are those with the greater notoriety or fashionableness . It must be kept in mind , however , that while mere whims of influential breeders , or skillful advertising , or the exhibition of a few remarkably fine specimens of a breed may give it notoriety for a time , nothing but substantial merit will long retain popularity with intelligent men . If any breed of horses , ...

BERKSHIRE BLOOD IN THE POLAND -CHINA . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

BERKSHIRE BLOOD IN THE POLANDCHINA . Does any man now believe that Berkshire blood was never used in the formation of the Poland-China breed of hogs ? Especially so when all reputable breeders have been , year after year , making exchanges in the use of stock . If Berkshire blood was ever used in the formation of this Poland-China breed , it exists in all the stock of all the breeders . It may be asked , in what consisted the improvement resulting from the crosses made with the Berkshire ? The answer is easily given . The symmetry ot our hogs was immediately improved . The stirring , muscular qualities of the Berkshire were imparted to their progeny . Thus crossed , our hogs were made more active and better able to stand up and travel under the great weight they oftentime attained . Another thing was obtained from the Berkshire cross , and from no other source , tpwit : the spotted and sometimes darker color . The Russia , the Byfield , the China and the Irish Grazier , subsequently...

BROOD SOWS AND SPRING PIGS . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

BROOD SOWS AND SPRING PIGS . A correspondent of the Country Gentleman says : Every farmer should know the exact time when his sows are to farrow . She will not vary two days from the sixteen even weeks , or 112 days . She should be confined inher room at least one week before her time is to expire , so that she may be reconciled to her quarters . Care should be taken to have the straw for her bedding soft and fine . She should have been so often washed and curried when a pig , that she may be readily approached , and be so gentle , that if any of her pigs stray away , and are liable to become chilled , they can be gently placed to the teat without disturbing her . When she wants food or drink she will call for it . Peed very lightly for several days . The two or three first days , give only a little slightly warmed slop . Then steadily increase to full feed , giving all she can eat , As soon as possible urge the pigs to get into the trough to learn to eat . This they will do when fi...

LIVE STOCK NOTES . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

LIVE STOCK NOTES . SHORT-HORN SALES . The Short-horn sales at Dexter Park , near this city , last week , resulted very satisfactorily to the owners of the herds and to Shortborn breeders generally . The attendance was good , the Western States and Territories being well represented . The first animals sold belonged to Mr . Millard Ketchum , of Westport , Connecticut . The herd numbered thirty-three head . They were in very poor sale condition , though so far as pedigree is concerned they were all right Had they been fed and cared for properly , prices would have averaged much higher . It is a point that Eastern men who wish to sell at the West should bear in mind , that corn is plenty , and that Western men know how to feed it . The cows averaged $ 121 . 80 , and tbe bulls $ 61 . 20 . The Spring Brook herd of Mr . H . B . Sherman , Burnett Junction , Wis ., was in fine condition . The sale was lively , and the average price for the whole lot was $ 204 . The next animals offered were...

THE POULTRY YARD . [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Review — 29 April 1880

THE POULTRY YARD . BRAHMAS vs . LEGHORNS . The following was written by Professor Cook , of Michigan Agricultural College , for the Detroit Post and Tribune : For three years I kept the brown Leghorn and light Brahma . I paid a good price for my eggs , in the endeavor to get the best strains of these two breeds . I gave to both kinds the same treatment , which was that recommended as best by the leading poultry books and journals . This included great cleanliness , a warm house in Winter ! with much sunshine and light , ample ventilation in Summer , warm food at least once daily in cold weather , as much variety as was possible to their food at all seasons , and fresh water always before them . I found that the Brahmaswere much superior to the Leghorns as Winter layers . Their eggs are scarcer , and always com mand a high price . If we take the whole number of eggs in a year , the Leghorns might excel by a little , but a very little , If we count by weight , then the Brahmas are ahe...
