Perpetuating the Good Qualities nf m. t .
u. u o ! ,he Te*,ed Making * Herd
Much Better Than You Can Buy.
It has become an axiom, with some
dairy men, that the beat resulta ure
obtainable only with the best breeds
of animals. I3ut success with such
•nimals implies also the best manage-
ment; and not every beginner is capa-
ble of the skillful handling necessary
with high-bred cows. The higher we
go in the scale of animal life the
more delicate the animal mechanism
becomes, and the greater the need of
wisdom In the human agency which
controls its movements. It is a long
time before a baby can care for Itself

aay old. A bronco colt can stand
more simple hardship and abuse than
can a colt of a standard high bred trot-
ting mare or a hlgh-clas draft ani-
mal; but the bronco will never have
the great speed, at the trot, of the
standard bred, nor will it grow large
enough to have the power of the
drafter. The scrubby native cow can
stand more.hardship and abuse thau
a highly-developed dairy cow capable
of doing great work, and the latter
loses her superior commercial value In
unfavorable surroundings and under
It Ib found, therefore, that success
In dairying depends as much on the
kind of care and management be-
Btowed on the herd, as upon the
breed. Care and management are for
this reason, given the first considera-
tion here. These should Include a
much greater degree of attention to
the comfort of the animals than Is
ordinarily bestowed. In fact, It can
bo demonstrated that the nearer we
come to applying the Golden Rule
to the treatment of the dairy herd,
and treating Its members as we would
like to be treated, the larger will be
the satisfaction and rewards of dairy-
These are the touchstones of suc-
cess. When the cow is comfortable
and contented, she responds with a
flow of milk far In excess of that
which she gives when she has been
uncomfortable and Irritated.
Everybody knows that In June
weather cows give a larger amount of
milk than in cold and wintry weather.
If we aim to produce, all the rest of
the year, In Rtali and barn, conditions
as nearly as possible like those of June
-In warmth, light, freedom from
files, etc., with succulent food in the
form of silage and roots to replace the
j June grasses—who shall say that
( *,068y will not make ample returns iD
! the milk pail?
In nothing have most farmers so
Binned against their herds, probably,
i ns In the Inadequate shelter pro-
i vlded them against winter's cold
and the hot sun of summer. Warm,
j well-lighted and ventilated stables are
I e8sentlal to a high rate of production,
i A sanitary barn should have froln four
; t° six square feet of window space for
| each cow kept. Where cows are kept
| In the stalls much of the time, it is
not unreasonable to Bay that the barn
should be light enough for one to read
1 in. Good ventilation is essential; but
it should be so arranged that the cows
shall not be exposed to a draught.
"While warmth without ventilation is j
conductive to disease, ventilation with-
out heat is a consumer of feed.” The
rage of temperature in the barn
should be kept between 40 and 60 de- j
grees F. In summer, the shades '
should be pulled down, lest the well- )
lighted barn become too warm. They I
will also keep out the flies. It is well
to have gunny sacks hung in the door-
way, so that, as the cow forces her
way through, the flies will be brushed
off her back.
Nowhere on .Jhe farm Is cleanliness
more desirable than in the dairy barn.
' Stalls and calf-pens should be kept
freo from filth and moisture. Plenty
of bedding should be used at all times,
and the pens cleaned out frequently.
If the calf pen is not a large one, it
should be cleaned out every day. In
the gutters, it is well to use common
slacked lime, or wood ashes, as an ab
Cows should not be kept in "an ice
house, a hog pen or a dungeon." A
dark, damp and dirty place is verv
favorable to the growth of bacteria,
which may attack the health of the
animals. Plenty of sunlight keeps the
place dry, purifies the air, and kills
When kept in the barn, cows should
be brushed daily, not only to keep the
dirt and hair from falling Into the
milk pail, but to keep the pores of the
skin open. This makes the cow more
comfortable, and It cannot be too often
repeated that anything done to add to
the comfort of the cow adds to her

CAUSE OF THRUSH
IN HORSES’ FEET
Trouble Due Frequently by Ani-
mal Standing in Filthy Stall
and too Dry Floors.
(By M. H. REYNOLDS. Veterinarian,
University Farm. St. Paul. Minn.)
This trouble is due quite frequently
to standing In manure or other filth,
which alters the condition of the horn
and may be accompanied or followed
by Infection. Long continued stand-
ing on very dry floors may lead di-
rectly to this trouble. In some cases
thrush seems to be associated with
contraction. The frogs in horses' feet
need exercise Just the same as any
other part of the body. When a horse
Is shod with high heel and toe calks,
or the wall is allowed to grow down
very long and the horse stands on a
board floor without getting frog pres-
sure, the condition of the frog Ib Im-
paired and It easily becomes subject
to Infection and disease.
Such cases need a clean, dry stall.
Tht hoof should be properly trimmed;
the diseased parts removed as thor-
oughly as possible; and a strong dis-
infectant used over the sole of the
foot. Any of the coal-tar disinfectants
may be used In full strength, or even
pure carbolic acid, care being taken
that the disinfectant does not run
down the heel and burn the skin.
After this first strong disinfectant
calomel Is a vory satisfactory treat-
ment for ordinary cases. The calomel
can be dusted over the diseased sur-
face and then some thick clay applied
over the entire sole of the foot
VALUE OF SILAGE
AND CORN STOVER
Interesting Tests Made at Ne-
braska Experiment Station
in Cattle Feeding
<Byr„iR Anlmnl Husbandman
' " varsity Farm. 81. Paul, MlnnT '
While at the Nebraska experiment
station the writer conducted tests to
determine (he relative value of silage
and shredded corn stover (stalks) for
cattle feeding. In order to determine
the amount of stover fed each Bteer It
was necessary to husk the com from
the slalk, and as the cattle were kept
in the barn, shredded stover was more
convenient although more expensive
The use of bundle corn, however
would greatly reduce the cost as it
can bo harvested and shocked as eas-
Hy aa the ears alone can be husked
from the stalk and cribbed. During
the fall and early winter the use of
bundle-corn containing ears might
even prove more profitable than the
use of silage.
The further fact that this expert-
ment was conducted during the sum-
mer months without the use of grass
pasture, Is evldente that calves can
make very satisfactory gains by using
corn silage and alfalfa as a substitute
In sections where enough grass can-
not be grown to carry the number of
cattle wanted through the year but
where a large tonnage of corn can be
grown on n relatively small acreage
