Improved by Uss of Purebred Rami
I Using purebred rams on the com
mon mountain hcep of Kentucky in
tests at the Kentucky Agricultural
experiment Station, added all the way
from three-fourths of a pound to
more than two and a half pounds of
wool to the average of five pound
which these animals generally shear
and In practically every instance Im
proved the quality of that wool, ac
cording to a new bulletin, "Breeding
Experiment with Kentucky Mountain
Ewes," which has Just come off the
press at the experiment station of
the College of Agriculture. The new
publication summarizes the results of
experiments that have been carried
on by the station since 1015 to show
how the native mountain ewes of the
state could be berd up with purebred
Rams of the Rambouillct breed
should be given careful consideration
by Kentucky sheep men when they
are considering the blood to use in
building up their flocks, the new bul
letin points out. This was found to
be the most satisfactory breed for
improving the mountain ewes. Ewes
from this cross produced heavier,
finer ahd more valuable fleeces and
when bred to purebred mutton rams
they produced market lambs of bet
ter quality and type than the Iambs
from the common mountain ewes.
Southdown, Cheviot and Hampshire
rams also were used in the experi
ment. The grade Hampshire lambs re
sulting from crossing the mountain
ewes and purebred Hampshire rams
gained rapidly and were ready for
market sooner than those from any
of the other crosses. However, they
lacked the quality of the Southdown
and Cheviot grades.
The Southdown grades had excel
lent quality and good mutton form
but gained slowly and required a
longer time to reach marketable
weights than those from the Cheviot,
Hampshire and Ramboullct crosses.
Rams of the four breeds used in
the experiment sired lambs that were
more meaty, crew more rapidly, were
of finer quality and dressed out a
higher percentage than lambs sired by

PROSPECTS FOR AG
New Year's Statement and re

from Secretary of
Twelve months ago most of the six
million fanners of the United State
were starting on the long hnrd climb
ot of the valley of economic depres
sion. They have not yet attalncil
the heights which are bathed In the
grateful sunshine of prosperity.
Some, Indeed, have fallen by the way.
Others arc still In the valley. Never-
theless, as we stop a bit and look
backward we can see that very con
siderable ground has been gained by
the great majority, and we can enter
the New Year with renewed hope and
with that courage which comes from
the realization that we arc really
A year ago, when speaking of the
prospects for farming in 1S:!2, I said
that while there was no reason to ex
pect boom times for the fnrmcr In
the near future, there was promise
o fbettcr times, both for the farmer
and for those whose business is
largely dependent upon him. The
year has brought fulfillment of that
promise. Speaking generally, times
are better, much better, than a year
ago, both for agriculture and for In
Crops have been good, on hte
whole. Trices of the crops are most
ly considerably higher. While there
has been a corresponding advance in
the prices of the things the farmer
must buy, the total sum which farm
ers will receive for the crop of this
year is greater by a billion and a half
dollars or more thsn that which they
received for the crops of last year.
This will certainly mean better times
on the farm, and farm folks will be
able to ease up a little on the grind
ing economy they were forced to
practice the preceding year.
The labor cost of producing the
crops of 1922 was still further re
duced. There were some substantial
reductions in freight rates. Much
helpful legislation has been enacted
and more will be this winter. In
terest rates ar elower and the credit
strain has been eased. This has
made It possible for many farmers
who arc rather heavily involved to
refund their obligations and get
themselves In condition to win thru.
There are still some dark spots.
In some sections weather condition
were unfavorable and crops were
short, and farmers in these sections
are having a very hard time of it.
Freight rates are still too high, es
pecially for those who must pay for
n haul to market.
Taxes are high, but this is largely
due to the increase in local taxes,
over which farmers themselves must
There has been gratifying growth
In farmers' cooperative marketing
associations, and more of them are

Aside from the help which ha
been given by the legislation and by
administration activities, strong cca-
nomtc farces arc at work to restore
a more normnl relation between agri
culture and other industries.
The peril in the agricultural de
pression is more keenly realized by
other groups than ever before, and
on every hand a sincere desire is be
ing evidenced to do what can cb done
