Racine Manufacturer Agriculturist (Newspaper) - September 1, 1884, Racine, WisconsinI " tace Breed of cattle. The Cuttle of the Little Island of Guernsey Bear its name but if a vis Tor to the Island asks about the cattle there he will probably be told the t they Are of the Alderney Breed or that they Are identically of the same Breed As those of the adjacent of Alderney. It is indeed True the t the cattle of these two islands Ai e very closely Allied the islands then Are in the same judicial District the same Laws govern the Irr por tation of neat Stock and occasional transfers of Stock takes place. This however does not make Guernsey there is really no such Breed As Ajder Neys but that name As has often explained i s Given in England and More or let s even though scarcely any other White is obvious. Solid coloured cattle occur but the fashion has never set decidedly in that direction and As useful Points have so greatly the preponderance in the estimation of Guernsey breeders it is earnestly to be hoped that they will not lend themselves to the Folly of placing a fictitious value upon any color Points. It is enough if the colors of a Fine animal Are agreeable and indicative of purity of Hood. Brindle not in frequently occurs either As obscure lines upon the head and neck Black upon Fawn or or More extensively covering the body. It is not an admired color but is certainly no indication of impurity. The skin of the Guernsey is soft pliable and in this country indiscriminately to unctuous abundantly supplied with any of the cattle of the Channel ii is to both jerseys and Guernsey. Stringent regulation s prevent introduction of Breeding cattle from anywhere else even Thoi e of the sister Island of Jersey Are subject to to e embargo and Are not regarded of the same race though in Jersey the Cross with the Guernsey has been taken and valued and to e regulations which enforce the immediately Slaughter of any cattle which is almost universally of a Rich Orange Peel color. This is of course most conspicuous within the ears and when the hair is parted upon White spots especially on the head and shoulders. The udder scrotum and the nearly hairless parts like the Between the forelegs and brisket and around the eyes have a similar Rich glow while the muzzle which is characteristically Black in the jerseys is White or Buff of Breeding which Are brought to tie in the Guernsey and usually in Island i anywhere else do n to circled by a fillet of Light Short hair apply to those of the other islands c f the Island group. Thus it Wourl appear that in the opinion c f the islanders themselves the Ger i says Are the Choice Breed of the Channel improving the jerseys b it not themselves Benefit cd by the Jer sey or other Cross. They Firfer greatly from the Jer Seys in Many respects. They ha1 e Little or Ione of that Peculiar Deer acte Rize the jerseys. They a coarser in Bone heavier in carcass larger every Way and naturally less Precopio is. Thev Are allowed o first calve at about and a hat cars of which gives them to and probably also u tendency o carry flesh. Their breeders Are nit in mind i of the facts that the is e of the calves and the aptitude of the cattle to make beef and turn Orl 11 when their usefulness in the Dairy is from any cause at an end Are matters of no Small importance to the s Mallvil commons to All who Are obliged to study by the economies of farming. The Are preeminently the Farmer s cows for Cream and butter product jr., and for colouring the butter of other cows. So Strong the race characteristics pre Potency that grades even Only halt Bree is possess the Best qualities of i 11 bloods t a remarkable degree. It might be inf Rcd that the Guernsey Jere not a Good looking Breed the contrary is True of Many specimens. There Are indeed among them not a few whose sloping Rumps big Hea is and heavy limbs Are not ornament 1, but As these Are Likely to be the be y Best milkers and butter cows of the Herd their defects Are easily Over looked or even magnified into Vir tues or Points of Beauty. For i i stance the Long head and Broad Square muzzle Are regarded As characteristics of value if not of Beauty and one can hardly visit a Guernsey Herd either in this country or on the Island without having his feature pointed out or dilated upon. The colors which predominate in Guern sey cattle Are yellow Reddish yellow though this marking is much less conspicuous in the before named Breed. The Guernsey Are certainly deeper average milkers than the jerseys. It cannot be said perhaps that they give Richer milk but it is much higher coloured and will impart its Beautiful tint to the butter of a number of common cows being in this respect decidedly Superior to the Jer As to Quality of the butter like Stilt and expression which Char aside from color there is nothing to Lane express the leading Industrial paper of England Are two valuable articles of a Page each on Dairy cows an essay by or. E. C. Tis Dell before the Dairy conference at Gloucester and an editorial upon it. Both give the decided preference to Dairy bred Short horns for the Dairy and both deprecate the Mien of Many Short Horn strains by Breeding solely for beef and this explains the opposite Opin ions in regard to Short Horn for the Dairy. Many regard them As the Best cows to be found As Superior for Dairy As they Are usually supposed Fawn Brown shading to nearly to be for beef while others Thiak and Yellowish Fawn Dun of various shades never however choose Between them and As to which Breed will give the most milk or make the nost butter upon a Given Quantity of feed that has never been determined. Cow for cow the Guernsey s have the advantage in size and would probably on that account not produce so much in proportion to their live weight. As a Breed the cows have excellent udders and teats which fill a Man s hand. Many Are Well marked according to the Guenon theory. They hold out Well in their milk Are quiet docile and tractable both on the tether and in the pasture in Short for general usefulness As butter fielders they Are nearly perfect. Or. John Langlois or of this City who furnished us with the above facts on his late visit to the Island of Guernsey had paintings made from life of both Guernsey and Jersey cattle which May be seen at Lang Lois son s store. Into wonderful smoothness and sym Metry of torn precocity in develop ment and excellence of beef or into a robust Cap icily for producing the Best Dairy Stock giving All their energies to the j reduction of calves and milk. Men c m do what they choose with Domestic animals but if they seek one value to the neglect of others those neglected will suffer. In English Dairy cows. A recent number of the Mark them both opinions Are Correct. Are the sower. What the leaders say about it. A successful seasons use of the Strowbridge sower has just closed and from All c directions the dealers Are writing in High Praise of the implement and saying they must have it next year. I rom the fall wheat sections the inquiry is for car dealers do not want and will not have an implement they cannot sell and the judge tent of a number of men who have sol 1 and tested a machine is a very reliable guide to its real Worth.
