DEHORNING WITH CHEMICALS.
Ftrmart are Beflnnlnf to Undentnd That Da
hernln Can Ba Done with Caustic Potaah.
The practice of dehorning conmion
cattle has Ikx-oiiio quite general over
large sections of the country. The
edict has gone forth "the horns must
go." The advantages in feilingand
shipping are so many and obvious
that farmers who handle large num
liers of cattle will no longer tolerate
horns. Dehorning is easily done at
the proper season of the year either
with the saw or with the shears.
The better way, however, is by pre
venting tho growth of tho horns by
the use of chemicals. A numlxr of
preparations were put on the market
some years ago, hut their uso has
been largely discontinued. Farmers
are beginning to understand that de
horning can lie done most readily
with caustic iMitash which can be
purchused at any drug store. Alxmt
half a cent's worth is snltieent for a
calf under a week old. The best way
of applying it is.insert tho small stick
in a tulje,or hold a pair of tweezers,
so that considerable pressure may lie
used nnd the fingers not burned.
The caustic should lie rubliod vigor
ously over the bump for a minute or
so xintil it has a sore appearance
A heavy scale will then form around
tho horn, which will cease to grow,
and in the course of time the seal
will rub off and the bud with it. Th.'s
no doubt causes the little animal con
siderable pain but there is no danger
of any serious consqueiices,and the
horn being removed a nice smooth
poll will be developed. It should
however, be bcr ie in mind that
nature provides somes means of de
fense and hornless cuttle are notor
ious kickers ; they learn to use their
heels rather than their heads. This
is particularly true of the naturally
hornless breads, but Wii have no
doubt tho homed breeds, if dehorned
in ealfhood, will soon lea ru the trick.
The gentlest dehorned cattle are
those on which the horns are allowed
to grow until they learn to use them
for offunua and defence and then
re dehorned, --Kx:hange.-
