WINTER CARE OF THE HORSES
Many Farmers Allow Their Work
Teams to Stand in Stable Without
Necessary Exercise or Air.
(By J. M. BELL.)
Why do so many farmers neglect
their work teams during the winter
months? By neglect I mean, why are
so many farm horses kept shut up in
close stalls, close stables, when not
actively at work; fed a heavy allow
ance of heating grain, all the forage
they can stuff, and only given exercise
when actually at work on the field or
on the road?
In a natural state, in any climate,
the horse, like all animals, must nec
essarily take exercise in seeking a
means of subsistence, therefore, a
horse which is kept by man must have
exercise in the open air (whenever
practicable) in order that he may be
able to give his owner the full equiv
alent in good honest work for the feed
that he eats.
Farm teams are used to working
hard all spring, summer and fall. The
dull season for the farmer is when in
clement weather prevails. Outdoor
work for the faithful farm team will
Don't let them stand up In the stable
for days at a time, fed heavily on heat
ing food, breathing only the vitiated
air of the stable.
Under the most favorable condi
' tlons, the average stable does not
furnish pure oxygen to horses or cat
tle that are kept constantly confined.
They get the much-needed daily exer
cise at irregular intervals, and in con
sequence suffer from many ailments
incident to close confinement, along
with heavy feeding.

which is very serviceable and durable,
says Wisconsin Agriculturist.
Tha fence is built up in the manner
shown by the illustration. Each pole
is driven into the ground and rested
in the crotch of the crossed uprights.
Ail are then, nailed, and the nails
should be of uniform length; and the
more regular and alike in size they
are, the better will be the fence.
TEMPERATURE FOR CHURNING
If Cream ls Too Warm the Butter Will
Come Soft and Salvy-Best to
Use Dairy Thermometer.
The proper temperature for churn
ing varies at different times of the
year, with character of feed, with pe
riod of lactation and breed of cows.
As a rule, the temperature should be
about sixty degrees in winter and fifty
six in summer, and the cream should
be held at these temperatures for at
least an hour before churning. If the
cream is too warm, the butter will
come soft and salvy. It will have a
poor keeping quality and there will be
a large loss of fat in the buttermilk.
If the cream is too cold, it will froth
and stick to the churn. It is well to
have the temperature so that churn
ing may be accomplished in twenty
five to thirty minutes and the butter
come in firm condition. A dairy ther
mometer should be used in controlling
DESIRABLE QUALITY IN EGGS
Actual Age la Only One of Factors
Which Affect Excellence-Term
"Fresh" ls Synonymous.
Because of the readiness with which
eggs spoil, the term "fresh" has be
come synonymous with the idea of
desirable quality In eggs. However,
the actual age of an egg is only one
of the factors which affect the quality.
An egg 48 hours old that has lain in
a wheat shock during a warm July
rain would probably be swarming with
bacteria and be absolutely unfit for
food, while another egg stored eight
months in a first-class cold-storage
room would be of much better quality.
A cow will not do her best when she
is In the least worried.
