Ideal m solicited from our Farmer one Lei am ered address to the editor. Tames Wilson Ames 1 the summer and fall pig must come now theories to the contrary not withstanding. The Maine station finds that if the dry matter of turnips is fed against equal parts of the dry matter of Grain the Grain having More protein fattened sheep quickest a boy at am is in discussion being asked Why he took the agricultural course replied for the agriculture in it for the horticulture in it for the Dairy culture in it for the scientific culture in it and for the general culture in it the Maine station finds that seventy two per cent of Corn fodders of various kinds Are digestible while Only sixty per cent of Timothy Hay is digestible. This is another objection to Timothy that can Only be gotten Over by Early cutting. The Minnesota station Barley to be better than Corn weight for weight in making pork. The investigation is Wise As Northern Minnesota can grow Barley better than Corn. Barley has an old history As a Good Stock if it is Plunie Barley. A Kansas county reports a loss of sheep equal to Twenty fire per cent and an increase of dogs however that makes up the loss of sheep. No com plaint is made concerning friction be tween the sheep and the dogs but simply the sheep moved out to make room for the dogs. The tests of the jerseys Guernsey and shorthorn at the exposition begin to come. The Surprise is in the Good behaviour of the shorthorn a Breed that has been neglected As Dairy cattle. The total solids of the three Breeds vary but Little. The jerseys Are ahead at All Points except that so far a Short Horn has Given the most milk and High est per cent of butter fat. The Dairyman now should use the Babcock every Day. If be fills his churns More than one third full away goes his fat in the Buttermilk. The in crease of milk is the cause that leads to filling the churn half or two thirds full and we believe that thousands of Dol Lars Worth of butter fat Are lost in the Buttermilk where no testing is done. Creamery companies should look to this. As Long As Farmers Are prone to Rush out of one kind of Stock and into an other the Only safety lies in stocking Iho farm evenly with horses cattle and hogs or sheep if taste and convenience leans to them. People Are getting out of horses and into cattle at present that is Well As far As the fur needs cat Tio. The foolishness was in Ever reducing cattle below the Power of the farm to twp. Our farm Economy is saving the women and we Are pleased to see it the separator in the factory saves them from Many a toilsome hour reverence be it family More Money than making the product at Home because the separator gets out All the fat if Well managed. Most farm machinery saves the men folks. We suggest to the ladies that they now go out of doors More and get natural roses on their Cheeks. Clover behaves differently under Dif Ferent conditions. A Field gave three Good crops of Clover Hay and was plow de under. Then a crop of Oats and after being slowed for Corn last fall shows a Good stand of Young Clover. The seed had remained dormant in the ground for two years without germinating. In the old Clover growing states tins is so Well understood that when a Field is seeded Down it is not necessary to sow Clover while it is necessary to sow Timothy. There is no doubt about requiring loss Clover seed after having grown it for several times in rotation. We All know that a Peck was Noue too much in Early Days when the Prairies were first broken hav ing grown Clover. We wrote some time ago about keep ing Stock off Bare pastures As they gnawed the roots to their permanent injury. This can happen As Well in summer grazing. The injured Plant can not make vigorous growth. In Early Spring the animal eats Down in. The Plant to get the nitrogenous mat Ter at the seat of life in summer on a ban pasture this want is not so great but the animal eats close to live it is a very wasteful practice. The pasture can not do As much by Stock after it is Bare. The Sun scorches the p ant and cracks the soil and prevents growth that would be vigorous if there were grass enough to make a partial Shade and mulch. Generally our acres not overstocked As far As acres go. But they Are not in Good heart or eaten too Bare. A Light manuring gives life to a Bare pasture helping it every Way. Of ten More seed is needed. It pays to care for a pasture As you care for an animal. When we Farmers look Over the Fence at the discussions that go on relative to the enforcement of statutes in town we reflect that while we Experiment More than any people in making Laws to Are More lax in their enforcement than any people. Whatever the Law is it should be enforced until it is repealed. Rich and poor High and Low should a made obedient to existing Law. Then if it is not what is wanted repeal it or change it to answer the intelligence of the Day we live in. Parliamentary bodies enforce obnoxious to the letter until they Are changed. It is very dangerous to society to permit violations of Law. People Gron indifferent to All Law and this encourages anarchy. The country people obey the Laws better than do City people but there is every reason Why they should. Vice congregates in the Back allies of the City and we should pity the offend ers and do our part in educating to bet Ter conduct. But broken Laws Call for punishment repeal or modification or anarchy Fellows. One of Hoard s epigrams la Only the Rich can afford to Burn Green Wood or feed Hay to the last half is not generally accepted but if he la talking of cows in milk we second the motion Hay is not Good cow is wild Upland Hay. Or Slough Bay or Timothy Hay. Early Cut Clover is Good and Corn fodder is we think brother Bennett will per Mit a modification. While we agree with him regarding Hays As they Are mostly made and Corn fodder As it should be made still our readers can make Hay that is Good for the milking cow. If the wild and Slough Hays Are out Young and Green and just As the blossoms Are coming on they Are succulent and palatable and digestible. Iowa dairymen do rely too much on wild Slough and Timothy Hays that when Cut late Are not As Good As Corn fodder. Or. Bennett and All of us can perhaps Best serve them by suggesting when the Hays should be Cut the Hay Fields of Iowa Are expensive and not luxuries they should be added to the pastures and a Superior fodder got from Green Cut Clover Oats and Well cured Corn stalks. But our Farmers inherited the habit of sowing Timothy and Many articles must be written before the Foroe of heredity in this regard can be broken up. We Are pleased to see help coining As we have Long since taken this ground. Perhaps Hoard and Ben Nett occupied it before we did. All the same it is tenable and in the direction of More profitable farming. We might add Here that we do see Many evidences of improvement farm writers have fewer grounds to dispute. The disposition to act Donnybrook is growing less As editors realize the great work ahead. Of course new hands swing the Shillal until they learn that veterans have bits of Sticks they can use and of ten in pity do if the cow la to do her Best As a milk or she must have plenty of protein in her feed. A German feeding Experiment just reported in the station record finds that in the Case of every cow the yield of milk and fat increased As pro Tein was increased and shrunk As the protein was decreased. Rations were made i part of protein to 8.19 of Carbo hydrates the first period then 1 to 5.42 in the second then 1 to 4.31 and Back to 1 to 8.19 again. The per cent of fat in the milk did not vary perceptibly As the changes were made. It is fairly Well settled that the cow to milk Well must have one Pound of protein to five or six. Or thereabouts or one part of what makes her Casein to five or six parts of what equals her fat and sugar. We can fatten a steer very successfully on what a cow will not milk Well on. The wider ration mentioned Here 1 to 8.19 would fatten a fast but the steer is not required by the Laws of his being to Lay up protein As he lays up fat in certain proportions while the cows in this Case gave the same per cent of fat on All rations but gave less total fat on the wide ration this is a Point that our friends North and South who make comparisons Between the Cost of making a Pound of beef and a Pound of butter should consider. The cow must be fed so As to enable her to make Casein or she will not make fat the steer will gain weight by filling his tissues full of fat from a ration that a cow can not make Casein from. Practically it Means to the Dairyman that he must provide his cow with a ration equal to Good Clover Hay or Good Pas Ture if she is to do her Best. If he gives her it ration that contains less per cent of protein he less milk. How much protein gives the Best results in milk or meats is an open question. There is a Point where the growing or feeding animal will not respond As Well As with less protein. The cow that make great butter records Are fed a ration having much More digestible pro Tein in it than they can assimilate and the average Iowa cow does not get enough. Beef of butter. It is True that three beef animals can be grown and disposed of while one butter an Imal la being fully developed As Good steers can a fitted for Market at two years old while the butter cow does not begin to give returns until about three years old. But when she does. If a Good butter cow she will give As Good returns each year As a beef Ani Mal will for two and will last five to six years. You can make a Pound of butter taking everything into consideration at about the Cost of one and a half pounds of beef. Good butter is Worth Twenty to Twenty five cents per Pound the year round beef four to six Rural world. This subject is looked at a Little Dif Ferent from the View Northern papers take of it one thing is Clear. The cow pays better for her feed than the steer but the work of the Dairy Man goes with it our exclusively Dairy friends rarely consider that every Farmer can not milk All the Stock his farm will keep. He looks at the world from his contracted standpoint no farm work pays As Well As the care a Good cow gets but Man s ability to care for cows in Iowa is limited while his farm yields with the leverages of Superior soils and implements to work them far beyond his Power to consume with the cows he can milk. The comparison then in our state Between the Cost of a Pound of beef and a Pound of butter to the Man who is milking All the cows he can is not edifying. Nor Are the perpetual blasts we hear from people up North of us and Down South of us in favor of special Dairy cows of value to to the Iowa Farmer who grows More than his cows eat Ouk pos mox of we despair of Ever getting our critics to understand our position on Dairying in Iowa. Some say we Are to iterating the abilities of fellow Citi Zens Aud others say we advise a sort of half hearted Dairying. We do neither. We say to every Farmer who has labor to set at work the cow will give you work and pay you Well for it let the Farmer with six milkers who will milk keep All the cows they will milk. But let the Farmer who has two milkers milk what he can get done and keep dry Stock to eat his grass and Corn and let such Farmers keep As big cows As the soil will sustain. What we have been protesting against is the advise of specialists who keep cows Only special Dairy cows perhaps that every Farmer must handle As they do. The specialist will make More Money in Iowa than elsewhere because grass is ple Tiest and Grain cheapest Here but tens of thous ands of Iowa Farmers most keep More grazers and Grain eaters than can be milked. Then we have had dispute about the cow for Iowa. We insist that All animal life will be Large Here from the boy to the sheep including the cow. It is the lesson of history. Jerseys grow to and in Iowa. Then Why bother with Small cattle on Rich soil like ours nor do we agree that it is Wise to turn the whole crop output of the state into Dairy products. On the other Nana we do not Tonii exclusive beef making is profitable on Quarter Section farms. We believe in departmental farming cows to milk and Breed feuding steers Marea to work and raise Colts sheep for Mutton and Wool hogs to take Byo products and Odd things. This is our theory of profitable farming in Iowa for million. 3hoktuobns. There is demand in Iowa for All the Young shorthorn bulls for beef herds and at present prices for the Best beef it pays so Well to make steers of about All the Young things that there is not much inducement for breeders to lean in the direction of milk. It can easily be done however. The shorthorn herds have All Fine milking families and by using Young bulls from Good milk ers a milking Herd can be bred out that will meet the requirements of the Farmer in the grass and Corn Belt if bred for milk Aud beef As they do to this Day and have done All along the years since cows in the county of Durham England first attracted attention to milkers and feeders. Rent paying Farmers on the heavy Rich soils of the old countries from which we import never think of keeping Small sized milk cows. The Farmers at Home and abroad on Light soils never think of keeping the beef Breeds. Milk is All they can As Pire to and they wisely make the most of it the Channel islanders and the dwellers on the thin soils of Ayrshire and on the mountains of Kerry must be Content with Small milking Breeds. We Are not compelled to rest satisfied with Small cows. They would not stay Small unless we starved them or bred them too Young. Iowa needs the grangers cow. A cow commensurate with the wealth of our soil a cow As big As a shorthorn or a Holstein or a red or Black poll or a Hare Ford and one that will milk Well we know there is work to do to make herds of shorthorn or polls milk Well. Selection is imperative and Wise Breeding necessary. So it is with the to Stein before it will feed As Well As it can after selection. But selection will do it sooner than we can develop Fine feeders from the Small milk Breeds. It is Folly to ask the Iowa Farmer to be Content with less than milkers and feeders in the same Herd. People away up North on the outer Edge of the nation where Corn grows under protest Tell us we need the Spe Cial Small sized milk Breeds. If they had Iowa conditions they would sing another song. So we say if you want milk and breeders of Good feeding calves select and Breed to that end As or. Shehan of Osage does and you will accomplish your purpose and no mistake about it if you Only want beef All right this was not written for you. Are fixed already with any one of the beef Breeds you fancy. Con Sider your wants in View of the soil you cultivate and its demands on you and your ability to make cattle pay. If you have plenty of help nothing pays like the milking cow and rearing her calf by hand and growing a Bunch of pigs. All fit in together. If you Are scarce of help then plenty of pasture and Well bred cows will pay without milking but you must sell on the top of the beef Market we will get our selves fitted to circumstances gradually but Iowa conditions must have Good cattle and Good sized cattle. We might keep the 700 Pound cow Down in size by sending her North or South or East or West to Graze in summer but if she wades through Iowa grasses she will grow in spite of us. We conclude that it is Wise then to select what we want from what we have and develop to our liking. R. Budd recommends the follow ing treatment for Balky horses when your horse balks Don t say a word to him. Get off your Wagon in hitch your horses tie up the lines and Bitch the other horse to the Wagon now take the Balky one by the bridle or Halter and make him go around you in a Circle for fifteen or Twenty minutes or until he gets tired and dizzy headed. Then hitch up your horses As though nothing unusual had happened get. On your Wagon and say go. And they will go and Don t you forget it. If after awhile he tries it again repeat the dose and this will last him one year at the Hen Prevot Ducoudray a French scientist inter ested in the attempts of prof. Garner to learn the Monkey language took it into his head that if monkeys could talk to one another there was no Rea son in the nature of things Why other animals could not do so too and pro curing a phonograph he proceeded to the barnyard to investigate the speech of the fowls there. After a Large num Ber of interesting experiments he concluded that the hens have a singular language by Means of which they communicate with one another. His deductions Are said to be marvelous and he is now lecturing before the Academy of sciences on the Hen Lan Suase. There will be no world s fair excursion trains run before August 1, if the agreement made last Friday by the Western passenger association is lived up to. They propose to meet again july 25 and take up the subject once More and if no agreement is reached each Road will be at Liberty to do what it pleases. Do.
