Holsteins make any animal husbandry events of importance have been held during the last few weeks. New records have been made in the Sale ring when registered beef cattle passed under the Hammer at startling figures. In this Issue of the Homestead detailed reports Are Given of two events where a Large number of animals sold at almost unprecedented prices. But rivalry for the ownership of valuable animals is not confined to those who. Favor the beef Breeds this being attested by the record made in Worcester mass., last week when 143 head of holsteins sold for a average of a single individual was knocked Down to an Eastern breeder for the neat sum of which is said to be the highest figure Ever paid for a his name is King Ormsby Jane rag Apple a name made famous by the enormous sum at which he was hid off. He comes of Royal blood his. Dam being none other than the great Ormsby Jan Segis Maggie a six year old cow with five world s championships to her credit namely a seven thirty sixty ninety and. 100-Day record. As a four year old the dam of this calf has a record of 44.42 pounds her five year old record was 46.33 pounds the milk yield for the seven Holster calf King Ormsby Jane Pas sold _ Day period being 879 pounds. The for standing behind him is the consignor Oliver sire of this High Selling calf rag Cabana or and the purchaser at his head or. D. W. Field Taro con mass. Apple kor Dyke 8th, formerly passed through the auction ring for the neat sum of with the Dairy inheritance therefore that this youngster possesses great things May be expected of his progeny and no Man can predict with any degree of accuracy the possibilities in production of blending his blood lines with High producers of a different Strain Dairying represents a Mammoth Industry As there were Over 000 000 Dairy cattle in the United states the last count was made in 1916. These cattle were valued at considerably Over a billion dollars. The ten Central West states own Over Dairy cattle valued at something like an event therefore like the one held at Worcester last week will be far reaching in its effect because it Means that the placing of these 143 animals in new herds will introduce forces of inheritance that pull strongly in the direction of in creased production. When values run into the thousands Are Apt to think that wild speculation pre vails hut after All most of these animals represent a new and improved kind of leaven and when we consider their Selling value spread out Over their progeny generation after generation we can but conclude that the improvement made toy the addition of these Ani Mals to herds is not too costly. Of equal importance to that of this great Holstein Sale was the an Nual meeting of the Polstein association which was held on the Day preceding. This is an association that has performed some Superb service to the Dairy Industry carried on its work in such a Way As to warrant it being used As a Model for other organizations that Are working to popularize a particular Breed. Those who have Man aged the affairs of this association have been men of vision and they have striven above All else to bring the Breed to the highest possible Point in the matter of production but doing this without sacrificing the constitutional Powers of these great cattle. A most interesting business ses Sion was held at this annual meet ing and among other topics Dis cussed tuberculosis came in for its share. Or. F. F. Field related in an interesting Way How he had cleaned up his own Herd and above All else he emphasized abundance of fresh air and Sunshine. The germs of disease says or. Field nourish in dark Corners but never where the direct rays of the Sua can strike and therefore Holstein breeders should take advantage of this condition and keep their cattle so that they will never be placed in contaminated quarters. If a cow reacts take the new born calf away from her. At once and by All Means pasteurized the. Milk that is fed to the calves. Heat it to a Point of at 145 degrees and hold it there for thirty minutes. The so called Flash system was not recommended As it has a tendency to destroy some of properties of the milk thereby making calf raising much More difficult than where the milk is never heated higher than 145 degrees in a discussion which followed or. Field s address widely varied views were expressed regarding ways and Means of controlling this much dreaded Dis ease though there was no difference of opinion regarding the importance of keeping the Herd in the open As much As possible and stabling them in Well ventilated quarters. Some idea of the flourishing Finan Cial condition of the Holstein tie Sian association May be obtained from the action of the Board at this meeting when it to appropriate the sum of for Liberty loan Bonds and in Addi Tion to the great work of the red Cross. So successfully have the affairs of the association been handled since the last meeting that d. D. Aitkin was unanimously re elected president for the ensuing year. Or. W. B.
