PRACTICAL BARN FOR COWS
One'. With Sheep Fold for Breeding
Ewes Found Very..Comfortable
I herewith present the plans of my
Cow barn, with sheep fold for breed
ing ewes, both of which I have found
very comfortable 'and convenient. For
all -practical purposes I would ask for
nothing better. The dimension of
. building Is 28 by 52 feet with room
above for 20 tons of hay and a wool
room where I can store away 600
fleeces, writes Edwin E. Sedw'ick in
the Farmers' Review. The corner
posts are 12 inches at butt, 8 to 10 at
top and 16 feet high. They are white
oak and were obtained from my own
timber. Such pols could not be
bought for less than $1 each. All the
woodwork, except shingles and siding,
were obtained from the farm timbet
lot and are mostly oak, elm, and bass
wood. The logs were cut and hauled

SHORTHORN IS 600D MILKER
Properly Fed, as They Are in Eng.
land, They Will RetainStrong
Place Among Dairy Cows.
(By R. 'G. WEATHIERSTONE.)
While the Shorthorn is generally
regarded as ( prime beef breed, there
are among the best milkers 61 this
country 'many strains of well bred
Shorthorns. In New England there
are one or two herds tnilng back to
Arabella 'a'd the Constance and Wa
Many herds of Shorthorns can be
found whose cows produce from 40 to
60 pounds of milk, per day. These
cattle are smooth, well fleshed, and
fatten off into prime beef.
The admirers of Shorthorns claim
that they can be so bred and fed that

they will produce good beef Ianimals
and at the same time make good dairy
cows. Or, they can be bred and fed
for the dairy to the opposite extreme
and make good beef as well.
Of course such breeding . will, In
Ump, ruin the constitution of the
stock, and destroy their qualities both
for the beef and the dairy. The ten
dency'of the Shorthorn to fatten too
easily is one of the objections to this
breed; but properly fed, as they are
in England, they still' retain a strong
place in the dairy.

writes Monroe Conklin, Jr., in the
Farm and Home. The board is then
driven on the tines, which are broken
off -at the face- of the board. The holes
should be a very little smaller in di
