Mr. Noble trekked i as high as 130 bushels per nto the country in the year 1009 and commenced breakiig a choice bit of prairiu on thc Aldersyde branch of the C. P. It. about 18 miles N.W. of the city of Leihbridge. The soil was a rich brown loam, but moisture, al- thougii not absent, was a limiting fac- tor in crop production unless careful cultivation were practised. Mr. Noble believed that moisture, like time, was money, and from the inception of his farming activities he has adopted the policy of thorough cultivation. The secret of success iii the farming operations on the farms now owned by the winner of the world's record, lies in successful sum- mer fallow, in cutting grain, stubble is alv-ays left as high as possible, not only for the sake of getting as little straw as possible to handle in thresh- trado if she iB ready, and to this end we recommend that the following measures bo taken: "We want an adequate intelligence system, which will collect data on the condition and quality of cattle as well! UB the number, iirffl forecast tho market conditions ao that the farmer i may have ready tho cattle that will bo j demands! at a certain time, and so j have a greater share of profit. "Thie system should also prividc, j by correspondence, figures on the con-1 (HtloiiB of the cattle iiidufitry in the' United States, Argentine and Australia j so that tho homu markets may be prc-j pared to cope with their competitors.' "Wo should have field officers ap-; pointed to assist farmers, and a tech-; nically trained man to represent tbe Canadian cattle trade in Great Bri- tain, to assist 3n organizing the ex- port trade, which will involve millions of Canadian money. Another necessary aid is the establishment of an annual census on tbe number and condition of cattle in the Dominion. "We waat the co-operative action of the farmers in selling cattle encour- aged, as it lias been in wool and eggs. "Eggs worth were handled by co-operation 'action last year, and I between two and three million pounds of wool. The sale of wool in this manner lias led to an improved pro- duct and great profits to the farmers. "Finally we want sale by grade and government supervision on the stock- yards and control on the exchanges. "The government is now at work i replenishing the supply of female cat-j tie for breeding and feeding. Far too! many have been slaughtered, find to increase production the government U has sent out men to interest tbe far-j mer in buying un the female cattle offered for sale and returning them j to the west.
