TAKE A DOSE OF
PERCHERONS FOR FARM WORI
Two Stallions and Two Mares of Puri
Bred Type Used on Big Manure
Spreader in Virginia.
(By S. M. CLINTON.)
A little over a year ago I paid
visit to a breeding farm in the fa
mous "Valley of Virginia," where Per
cheron horses were raised, and wa.
struck with the fact that this bree<
possessed admirable qualities as farn
horses, as well as city drafters.
Two stallions and two mares wer
working on a big manure-spreader
being all driven by one man. Thesf
superb animals were pure-bred Per
cherons, and averaged 1,850 each
The young stallions were easily man
aged, although they were being used

structure of their feet, all go to make
'he Percheron popular, both as a

I have followed the business

about six years with varying succes!
Sometimes the refuse from factorie
where corn and peas are put up (an

it is stacked. I think the latter to b

more this is done the better. Fre
quently the stack is made in the forn
of a loop so that the horse and empty

which they entered.

Is lost in recovering a normal' condi
tion. The writer at one time had oc
casion to weigh the silage and found
that a steer would eat as much as
100 pounds per day of this pea silage,
but at the same time he was drinking
no water. In a herd of 125 head the
writer has seen several days pass
without a footprint near the vwter
A small amount of hay is fed in
connection with the silage, as is
shown by the hay shed, which is a
necessary part of the equipment. This
hay shed holds from 18 to 20 tons and
has ample capacity for 125 head.
About a year ago -a writer in your
columns cited gains made of nearly
100 pounds in eight weeks. No one
either in my experience or observa
tion has made such gains, and our op
portunities have been exceptionally
good. The writer has weighed his
cattle off the pastures at the end of
the grazing season, shrunk them3
per cent., and weighed them again at
the beginning of the grazing season
the following spring, and at the end
of a 30-mile drive they showed a loss
of 35 pounds per head, from which WE
conclude that they lost some flesh,
but grew enough to about hold their
own. This was on pea silage. Corn
silage would have shown up some
what better. In any event they must
be wintered cheaply. The advantage
of selection and buying in the fall Is
a~n important one.
