Plan to grow practically all food and feed needed on the farm....2. We should keep at least enough good livestock to consume the roughage that usually goes to waste, to provide a lull year’s work for men and horses, to furnish milk and butter. to provide pork and pork products, and to supply poultry and poultry products for home use....3. We should keep at least one brood mare on the farm to do the light work and to raise the necessary colts to furnish horse power. This will save the money paid out for mules, and horses, but the greatest profit will come from securing in this way sufficient horse power for the most economical production of crops. 4. Only the most prolific seed of all kinds should be planted....5. A systematic rotation of crops should be practiced, and a leguminous crop should be grown on every acre of land every year....6.Liberal applications of acid phosphate should be made on all soil deficient in phosphorus, and lime should be applied to soils needing lime....Labor saving farm implements and machinery of all kinds should be used for the most economical production of crops.
