Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 13, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta IK' biifitiit die Fanner OP SHOHT- addivss before the Cen- -tjMl^Jikkortilurn ni-rotlcrs' Convention 1^4 KkiiMui Cit\ Professor ,W..) J Ki-n-^y.Vot the lo�tt Agricultural Col-tnve fcOHK- advice th�t shott - change tot the l.i�tti�jr, elw got out of (he shorthorn breeding business. THE DCAt. PURPOSE,COW, ''T*ie. dual purptse cattle man demands an unima) that comibincs in a liberal way the ability to convert ' foo'* into inlll.t lac successfully contra dieted, and it is a rcgi-ettablc fact that these aninvals are far too few in numbers for the best iirterests of tlie taruwrs of the Midtllc West. That the breeder who attempts 'to perpetuate both beef and milk in the same (inimnr has a most difficult task to perform, cnnuot be denied, but it can be done, and tlio man who docs it will be weU repaid for his trouble. MUST IMPROVE MILKING QUALITIES. "This la one of the lines of work that breeders of shorthorn cattlemust take up. No breed excels the shorthorn from tl>e standpoint of beef and milk, where prcpor, care has been used'iu the selection and mating of the animals. But this matter must Le given more consideration. Shorthorn men, as a class, have been work ing :the blull game too long. The time is at hand when the shorthorn cow nuist be more reliable from the standpoint of a milk producer if she is to rela'n the position wWrfi she has so nobly occupiod for almost a century, the world's most famcusbegf iind butter cowi. It is up to the breeders of this breed to say whether or not she nmst lose her place, but there is one thing that is certain, there must be more milk, else there will Le fever of the reds, tlte whites, and ihe roans. IIOW TO EFFECT IMPROVEMENT "Htivinij discussed the essentials that are, and will be dentanded otthe shot-thorn cattle, another important point has been reached. How are wo to improve the breed, jnaintain a high standard of excollonco. and let those outside of our own fraternity know what we are doing. In thefirst place, no breed of animals bns ever been brought to a high standard of excellence, and that standard nmin-tained for any considerable length of time, where a vigorous process of weeding out the inferior animals and the retaining of only those animals tf the desired t.vpe was not pursued. Even where tiic most rigid precaut -ions in this direction are p\irsucd, inferior animals among the offspring are always "loo much in evidenco. Too much and attcn'tion can -not ie given to this phase nf the work. Breeders mH.�rt ca-ftrni*- nwio of their ycung hulls. A GOOD STEER VS. A POOH lU'LL This is not poor economy. It is OMist more proAtable to proiii-phasiTting the strong points of the other breeds, whose breeders are more aggressive and wide awake to thoir owTi best in'terests. There arc many breedei-s of shorthorn cattle at the present day who ore advertising from six to twenty young bulls tor .sale, who shoutd be fcotling more than half of that number of pure bree young bulls for breeding purposes Jliat you would deem good. KEEP MILKING RECORDS. "So much for the mothods of improving and maintaining the stand -arrt of the breed. The next stej) of of the breod. The next step in our work is to demonsrtrntc that we have the goods.. How can this be l>csl accomplished'? Thotv is an old and very true .sa.ving thai �'Nothing suc-coiMls liUe success." .Iii.'^t apply this to the aninml.'j ot the shorthorn br�d. The test wa.v to deuions'trato thnt the shorthorn cow is capable of producing milk aiwl but tor is to keep II ye.�rly rcci)rtH-in)cn.s of Ihi" brcod to the fat sioil� slunv.s. For this.purpose tl�> l-.ost is none too good for there is no hettor achortise nnjnt for an.v bouf than the winning of prizes nt the fat stock show.s. oi - i.vtj;:rj.;h'i to smaij.iox owners.
