GOOD CARE OF Y0?.\'G CALF

on Accci'r.i of Flics.
The Maine Farmer thus reports the
address of Prof. R. W. Redman given
on thc Farming Si ccial trip, on the
subject cf the dairy calf: His sug
gestions were the results of the best
practical experience along that line.
Afior some preliminary remarks a!or.g
the line of selection of the cow and
the use of a pure-bred bull, in which
he emphasized the quite generally ac
cepted assertion th^t tte sire is half
the breed, he spoke particularly of
the treatment of the cow before calv
ing. She should rest a few weeks and
should be fed well but not high, and
should have some succulent feed. She
should have good care and attention
and will respond with better offspring.
Ke suggested the following treat
ment of the calf: Leave it with the
dam a few days and then take lt
away and teach lt to drink. A clean
pail shouid be used and the milk
should always be thc same tempera
ture. After a few dnys of whole milk,

menced, with some substitutes for
the fat which is taken out in the
cream. The feeding of grain and
clover hay may be commenced and
gradually increased as the calf is
able to assimilate it.
Professor Redman said that the calf
should be kept growing and not al
lowed to get a setback at any time,
for it might never fully recover fror
it and would not be likely to m?ke
the high quality cow that it ott ,r
Professor Redman did not favor pas
turing the calves during the first sum
oner, but rather keeping them Inside
and away from the annoying flies dur
ing the warm days, for often they lose
more in fighting flies than they gain
by the open air and pasturing. They

CARE OF THE YOUNG CALVES
Especially Susceptible to Ravages of
Flies and Should Be Kept In
(By W. W. KIMBALL.)
The young calves are especially
susceptible to the ravages of flies and
it will seldom prove profitable to al
low them out of the barn except for
exercise during the night when the
files will not prove troublesome.
There are numerous remedies that
may be used as fly repellents but the
following formula recommended by
Doctor Moore has given excellent sat
isfaction wherever used and where
many of the expenuive preparations
have failed to perform what th*ir
manufacturers claimed for them.
Fish oil . 100 parts
Oil of tar. 50 parts
Crude carbolic acid. 1 part
The cost of the mixturo is about
30 cents a gallon and it may be ap
plied with a hand sprayer every two
days. Some prefer applying the mis

Loads of clover and other forage
hauled to the stable every two or
threo days will keep tho calves and
cows in excellent condition and the
manure thus made will nearly pay for
tho increased labor required in cut
ting and hauling.
WI'en wo consider the relationship
between the comfort of the cows and
calves and the amount of milk and
growth wr can hardly fail to see that
we shouh do all in our power to Im
prove their condition in fly time.
