Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 26, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia A Jersey prize Winner. Or. Widener a gentle Little lady Isabel a Many Blue ribbon. Little lady Isabel whose picture la shown Here is one of the most Beautiful and Best producing jerseys on this Side of the water1 and she is the Pride of her owner p. A. B. Widener at his show farm Elkins Park. She has won enough Blue ribbons to decorate her stall All round its top railing and the fancier whose Money could take her away from the widened stables has not yet come into Public prominence. She 1 As gentle As she is pretty and her butter average is More than fifteen pounds per week. The Jersey cow is a highly specialized product of centuries of Breeding for the primal in purpose of the economical production of butter says the breeders Gazette. The intelligent breeder will Hope to produce butter making function by reproducing this form. There is a fascination in watching a lot of Beautiful Fawn like Jersey heifers As they Are developing into sows especially if their Breeding is such As to give Promise of unusual excellence. There is enough of Chance in it to satisfy in some degree the gambling spirit that we mortals Are cursed with. The science or lottery of Breeding has such a Charm for the Amateur that Many formulas of inbreeding have been experimented with to the detriment of some families of jerseys. To be sure a few remarkable freaks have resulted but these Are of questionable value since they never reproduce themselves. The phenomenal results of mating the st Lambert Herd with Stoke Polis Iii. Have been the inspiration that has resulted in inbreeding. A there is no place for a dog on the same farm with a Jersey cow. Decide which you prefer to keep and then either kill the dog or sell the cow. I once sold two fresh heifers to a Friend at a modest Price a says h. S. Chapman. A they were gentle pets kind to milk and giving eleven pounds of but p. A. B. Widener a pet cow. Ter each per week. My Friend took them Home and turned them into a Woods pasture. At milking time the big Black dog was sent to the Woods to drive up the heifers. When the heifers saw that dog coming at them they went up All right As High As they could go without climbing the Trees. They did climb the fences. The dog was a a Good dog Aud kept on in line with his instincts chasing the frightened heifers till finally the two together my Friend and the dog got the poor Little cows into a Fence Corner where my Friend milked them the big Black dog watching the while to keep the heifers in that quiet peaceful condition of mind so imperatively necessary to a Normal flow of milk. A a few weeks under this system and the heifers were nearly cry. When my Friend wished me to take them Back which i did. The next year they made recorded churn tests of Over fourteen and a half pounds of butter each in seven Days and at five years old the two were sold to satisfied purchasers for $400.�?� general farm notes. No Man who thinks anything of a tree will Ever make a hitching Post of it. There is a Little mint of Money saved in buying feed in the fall of the year and Bolding it till Spring need comes. One of the Best tools a Farmer can have is a Good Riveter for mending leather straps of All kinds. One of these will save a Good Many trips to town and maybe More than one run Uway. Keep a Blank Book and Jot Down the mistakes you make this year As things to be avoided next year. It is easy to remember what you made Money on but it makes a pretty smart Man to see his own failures. A Good Many Farmers Are getting so they would rather sell their potatoes in the fall right from the Field Aid not have to bother with storing them and running the risk of Low prices next Spring. The shrinkage too is a big item to be figured on. To get the beat results from the agricultural paper it should be read and discussed by every member of the family. A discussion upon subjects relating to the farm and the Home will interest the younger members of the family and give incentive for More thoughtful Reading. Good news. A a mtg dear our landlord says he a going to Rais our a glad to hear he Cau do it. I a Baltimore american. Though some of us Are poor let Nall be . Many kind of knife. An extraordinary thing about the cutlery Trade is the variety of knives made. At the Suffolk works in Sheffield for instance they have 10,000 different patterns on the books. They make sometimes 3,000 patterns to or Der at one time. The same thing is True of the Large cutlery works at so Lingen in Germany. One firm has 9,000 patterns for Germany alone. New ones Are constantly coming out. The Suffolk works have averaged ten new patterns a week for two years. This is a Trade that will not be standardized which is one reason Why America has filled hitherto to Romonto. Obs Iory a Al Alfuns forage kind. Grows anywhere needs Only int sell gent Cere and brings big prices. _ hire Are some Points on Alfalfa indicating principally its value to every Farmer East West Mortti or South. Or. John Waltl of Wisconsin in an interesting letter to hoards Quot Dairyman says in part a six years ago Many Farmers in the Vicinity of Monroe claimed it would not grow on their land. Several Farmers started with a Small Patch and soon found it to be a Good feed. Year by year they continued growing it in larger Fields. Last year they raised such an amount that by heating in the mow it caught fire and destroyed lots of feed and Many buildings. But that can All he overcome. If Alfalfa is properly cured there is no More danger in itself heating than in Timothy Hay. Quot a recent article in a farm paper tells How a farm proprietor in Texas sowed five acres of Alfalfa and soon discovered its value. Six years later Rte a blowing Fob Alfalfa. He owned 1,300 acres of Alfalfa. Besides feeding his Stock he shipped Hay ind made a net profit of $109,000.&Quot j. T. Anthony of Maryland says in the american agriculturist a some ten years ago 1 made a Start with Alfalfa and after a succession of failures and successes covering More than half this period the Light began to break. In Short you have to learn How to grow Alfalfa just As you must earn How to grow fruits or vegetables it of the finest Quality. A select a Well drained piece of Loam and not necessarily a a Knoll but a Ilece of land that is not wet and soggy he subsoil of which is porous so that he plants can Send their taproot Lown Down without striking water. If the plot selected is deficient in Plant food and humus let these be supplied Tud the land cultivated in some Hoed crop such As tomatoes potatoes or com. A it is a rank feeder As evidenced by its tremendous Root system and As All plants take their food in solution both food and moisture must be present to sustain the Young says the Orange Judd Farmer a there is no longer a question but that Alfalfa can be grown anywhere. The Only requirement is that the soil be free from surplus moisture. In other words it must be Well drained. This being accomplished a Clay subsoil or even a hard pan is no Barrier. Alfalfa roots have been known to grow through Twenty feet of hard Clay. A it is a very profitable crop. When sold for Hay a Good crop will bring Alfalfa a wonderful Root. By Courtesy Long Island agronomist from $15 to $35 per acre. When used for Stock feed it will often return $35 to $60. When grown for seed very frequently $30 has been secured. A but in considering Alfalfa the return from the crop is not the Only consideration. It adds greatly to the Richness of the soil. It takes nitrogen from the air and stores it up in Large Quant Les for future crops. It is a protein feed and. Promises to solve the cheap feed problems on the High priced lands of the Middle West Farmers Lei this locality must have cheap feed if i hey Are to raise live Stock at a profit. They must have live took if they Are to keep up the Fertility of their land.
