PRACTICAL FENCE FOR STOCK
Barrier Constructed of Wire Froves
Entirely Satisfactory With AM
Kinds of Animals.
A good stock fence is one that will
turn all kinds of stock without inj'iry
to the animals. The cheapest and
best fcnco to build is a wire f?nce.
At tlie +op of the picture ir. shown a
fence which I have on my farm that
has proven satisfactory in every par
ticular, writes R. O. Clr-g^tt ol' Carroll
county, Maryland, in the Farm and
Best Stock Fence.
Home. The posts are set '?0 inchos
In the ground and placed 10 feet ]
apart. >.*o. 9 galvanized wiro is run j
through holes in the posts. 'This has;
proven to be one of the great attrac- j
tions of the fence, as there are no |
staples to pull or rust out and the
wires are always held in their proper
position. A ratchet is piaced on the
end post and the wires can be kept1
tight at all times.
With a monkey wrcr.ch ard winding
ratchet the wire on the entire length I
of fence is stretched at ene time. The
wire can be loosened in thc ia!l ol' thc !
year and tightened in thc spring, and j
in this way the fence can be kept in \
perfect condition at all times. Wood
pests were usc-d from the farm wood,
lot, but w?re all materials need to
be purchased, concrete posts with !
holes for wire would not only be the
cheapest, but a fence put up iu this1
mani.er would last a lifetime.
A fence ;::nr=t have strong and well
braced end posts. Figure 2 shows a
good brace for this purpose. The
three end posts are placed three feet
in the ground and are a foot in diam
eter. The braces aro -1x4 inches. In
figure 3 is shown bracing arrange
ment for corners.
FLOOR FLAW BARN AND SILO
Building Will Accommodate Sixty!
Head of Cattle and Tank Holds
200 Tons of Ensilage.
I am sending you floor plan of my
cattle barn and silo, writes R. P. El
liott of Lathrop, Mo., in the Missouri
Valley Farmer. The barn accommo
dates 60 head of cattle and the silo
bolds 200 tens of ensilage. The en
silage is carried to the troughs by a
Loudon carrier that runs on a track
attached to the rafters. Tiio hay rack
is built irom the lirst floor to the up

that when tho hay is put in it is con
sumed on the ground. The mow holds I j
100 tons of hay and is equipped with |
a hay fork. The cribs hold 4,000 ? ,
bushels of corn and have doors next | (
the troughs that make it convenient to
get the corn in troughs.

arator and then remixing, a good many
genus are removed, but this does not
imply that the disease genus are re- j
moved. The chief effect of the separa- !
tion is the purification of the milk
from solid filth, and this is some gain.
The keeping quality of tho milk is not,
however, greatly improved bj' the
clarifying. If there were disease germs
in the milk before being separated
they will most certainly be in the milk
alter being separated.
Incomplete Milking Bad.
Incomplete milking nut only robs
the dairyman of the richest portion
of the mi.k, the drippings, but dam
ages the cow, tending to lessen her
daily production and to shorten the
period of lactation. It takes a littlo
more time to draw the last ...tnt ot
milk from the udder, but the time is
well spent in view of the gain both
to the cow and to its owner.
Should Be One or Other.
The dual purpose cow that gives
about three gallons of milk a day, and
produces a long-legged, slab-sided steer .
that takes three years to mature to j
make just passablo bec!', Is not the
animal suitable to run on the high
priced farm of the twentieth century.
Water Supp.'y Important.
Watch the water supply. Milk is 90
per cent, water, and if something hap
pens the supply so that the cows are
forced to without for a few hours
the drop in the milk flow will be as
tonishing. Heavy milkers are always
GWMW? CHhtSES Bi PARAFFIN

animal industry, recently issued by
Lhe United Slates department cf agri

cludes that it is an effective way of

DEVELO? LONG MILK PERIODS
YiXioh Depends on Breed, Individua'
Character of Cow and Feed
One Good Plan Given.
The length of the milking period
if a cow depends largely on the breed,
he individual characteristics of the
?ow ann her feed. It is generally be
ieved by dairymen, however, that the
length of the lirst milking period of a
lieder will influence tho milking peri
ods of ber life, and to this cud the
Srst milking period is prolonged as
long as possible.
In developing a milker the plan is to
deep up the milk flow clear up to with
h two cr three weeks of calving the
second time in order to fix the habit
if long milking periods. The milk
Irav.m will often be in too small
amounts to pay for the time and trou

Cement makes the best foundation

Intelligent care of cows brings a lib

Clover or alfalfa seem to contain

Usually it takes about 75 per cent,
of what a cow eats for her mainte
nance. The way some people feed it
takes much more than that.
The average milk cow will drink
from SO to 100 pounds of water per
day, and the more we can induce her
to drink the better for the milk flow.
