argentina cattle industry much more
patronized than in the united states
In Temperate Zone Almost Entire Life of Animal May Be Spent
Out of Doors Without Shelter of Any Kind—Luxuriant
Growth of Alfalfa Makes Beef Production Cheap.
WHERE HER THOUGHTS WERE
Champion Short Horn Bull, Sold at International Stock Show, Chicago, for
Export to Argentina.
(By W. H. MUMFORD.)
Cattle raising for beef in Argentina,
especially in the temperate zone, is a
much more favored industry than in
the United States. The climate makes
it possible for the entire life of cat-
tle to be spent out of doors without
shelter and generally without shade
of any kind. Alfalfa grows most lux-
uriantly, and the suitability of a very
large acreage for the growth of that
crop and of other nutritious indig
enous and introduced legumes and
grasses together with cheap land and
labor, makes it possible to produce
beef cheaply. To any one unacquaint-
ed with the possibilities of the coun-
try, the degree of fatness which the
cattle acquire on grass or alfalfa
alone is a marvel. Corn feeding as a
supplement to pasture for beef pro-
duction is extremely rare Heef-mak-
ing in Argentina at present there-
fore is practically a strict pasture
There is quite on extensive area
well suited to. and at present partial-
ly used for. the growing of corn, but
as yet, and probabV for some years
to come, this product will be either
exported or used for horse, dairy cow,
and pig feeding. Only the flint varie-
ties are grown generally. It is evi-
dent that the natural advantages of
Argentina enable her cattle products
profitably to compete as they are
already doing, with the grass cattle
and lower grades of native beef pro-
duced in this country North Amer-
ican corn-fed beef, so long as the sup-
ply lasts, doubtless will continue to
command a premium over Argentina
grass cattle in the market of the
world. Although "Argentina eventual-
ly may develop the production of
corn-fed cattle which her soil and
climate render quite possible, it is
probable that thf> domestic demand

Lamb That Is Bred in First Year
Will Remain Stunted—Mucti
Food Is Wasted.
It is natural that a lamb should put
In its first year in growing, both in
height and breadth as well as in vol-
ume. The feed consumed should con-
tribute to this end. When the lamb
is bred, much of the nourishment in-
tended for itself must go toward the
nourishment of the foetus. For that
reason the development of the mother
is retarded, and, in fact, is never
again resumed to anything like the
degree first seen.
A lamb that is bred in the first
year will remain stunted. Even ite
wool will fail to make anything tike
normal growth. The first year's wool
crop is usually counted on to be the
largest, but it is little to boast of if
the lamb is bred. Like tissue, wool
requires feed to promote its growth,
and when the feed has to be used for
other purposes the wool does not
It may be argued that heavier feed*
Ing of the lamb would overcome these
objections, says New York Farmer,
but as a matter of fact there is a max-
imum amount of feed Jhat the not
yet fully developed digestive system
of the lamb cannot handle, and be-
yond this amount the food is voided
from the body in an unassimilated
state, without doing the lamb any
good. Rather will it exhaust the ener-
gies of the lamb still further to han-
dle this mass of food from which it
cannot derive any benefit.
If an unusually fine lamb resulted
from the breeding of a young ewe,
then there might be some reason for
sacrificing the growthiness of the
mother; but as a matter of fact, quite
the opposite condition holds true in
the majority of cases. An immature
ewe seldom produces a sturdy lamb.
Her offspring is usually lacking both

to be a growthy, prolific animal.
The reasous for this are obvious
absorb, and Indeed already absorbs,
ljractically the entire amount of beef
produced here, thus rendering our ex-
port trade, and consequently foreign
competition abroad, an unimportant
factor in the industry. The chief con-
cern of beef producers in this coun-
try should be not what effect will
South American competition have
upon our export trade, but what ef-
fect will the possible importation of
South American beef to the United
States have upon the production of
beef cattle here.
That corn, and likewise corn-fed
cattle, can be produced in Argentina.
Uruguay, and some other South Ampr-
lean countries is an assured fact The
extent to which it will be fed to cat-
tle. however, is limited by the rela-
tively small production of corn and
further by the fact that it is a new-
industry and will not gain favor rar>
idly because it involves more crop-
i ping and labor and considerably more
It is significant that the expansion
of cattle raising in Argentina has
ceased, and largely because grain
growing is proving more profitable
than cattle raising. The beef product
will be much improved but the supply
available for export doubtless will not
increase more rapidly than the coin
bined factors of increased population
there and among nations consuming
her surplus, and the relative decrease
of beef production elsewhere. South
American beef surplus will be in
strong demand; obviously countries
willing to pay the highest premium
for it will secure it. Again, the cost
of production is sure to increase wit ti
increased cost of labor and lanrl
Under such conditions it is not antici-
pated that the business of raising
beef cattle in the United States will
b«' menaced permanently by Argen-
First, the lack of competent develop-
ment of the mother and the some-
what imperfect functioning of her va-
rious organs; and. secondly, the ex-
istence of such conditions of affairs
that the food which should go to the
nourishment of the foetus must be
utilized in part for the upbuilding and
growth of the mother.
A flock in which a practice of
breeding young ewes is made deteri-
orates rapidly, and in a short time
undtTsized. weakly and ungrowthy
sheep will be found in it. The man
who desires to maintain size and
growth in his sheep, to keep up a high
wool yield and to improve his flock in
general should not yield to the some-
times great temptation to breed his
young ewe lambs.

Only Way to Control Disease Is
to Destroy Balls—Change
of Land Benefits.
(By V. M FREEMAN, riant Pathology
and Botany. University Farm. St. I'aul,
Corn smut may occur upon any part
of the corn plant; it may also infect
any young and tender part, at any
stage of the corn plant's life. During
the winter the spores live* in the soil
or in manure. In this respect corn
smut is different from the grain
smuts; in none of the latter is there
any appreciable danger of infection
from spores which have lived over in
the soil. In the spring the spores ger-
minate, producing long chains of new-
spores, which are blown about by the
wind and infect any growing part of
the corn plant, producing, finally, smut
balls. The spores may live in the soil
or in manure piles for years. This, of
course, makes seed treatment useless;
and the only way to control the smut
is to destroy all smut balls, when pos-
sible, to prevent them from shedding
their spores on the ground or into
manure, and avoid placing fresh
manure on corn land. Changing corn
land ,from year to year also is bene-

effort to amuse the children by means

other adults present were highly

deigned to chuckle mildly. The mother

work he gave Henry the task of fur

fellow worked faithfully for half an
hour. Suddenly, however, he turned
to his father and said:
