MANAGING THE BULL.
Head of the Beef Herd Should Be Well
The usefulness of a herd bull depends
very much upon the way he is cared
for. The ration should be such as
will bo conducive to n pood growth of
frame and enough flesh to give aim
the appearance of being a well nour
ished animal. The mistake is more
often made by not feeding a sufficient
quantity than by feeding too much,
thinks Professor A. L. Haecker. The
fiesl) carrying quality, which is so im
portant in beef cattle and one which
has developed generations of skillful
feeding, can only be maintained by the
liberal use of the right kind of feed
If a herd bull is undernourished he
becomes thin in flesh, and his offspring
are likely to be less responsive to feed.
The quickest way to breed out the
rapid fattening tendencies which we
have in our improved beef cattle is to
underfeed the breeding sire and darn.
On the other hand, much care should
be exercised to avoid the other ex
treme. Dulls and cows that have been
subjected to forced methods of feeding
for show ring purposes are sometimes
greatly incapacitated as breeding ani
mals. This is especially true if the
A well known breeder of Here
ford cuttle .says: "I like the Here
fords best because they have been
the most profitable cattle ever main
tained on my farm. Our farming
is Intensely practical in every re
spect. When we introduced Here
fords into it we did not change our
methods or take up so called fancy
lines of farming. We required that
the cattle selected should make us
money under practical farm condi
tions, such as obtain on almost
every corn belt farm. The Here
fords filled the bill and were money
makers from the beginning."
ration used has contained starch and
fats in excess, such as we find when
corn is used in large quantity.
The owner of a breeding nord could
handle his cattle with the prpatest
protit by keeping his cows in just mod
erate flesh with a liberal use of alfalfa
and clover hay, silage (if It is availa
ble) and but a small quantity of
grain. It is much less expensive to
ftvd a whole herd of cows in the same
manner, and the influence on the off
spring is the same in each case.
If a mature bull has all the alfalfa
or clover he will consume, together
with twenty to thirty pounds per day
of corn silage or roots, he should keep
in good breeding condition on what is
usually considered half a full ration
of grain. For a growing bull weighing
1,000 pounds a daily grain ration con
sisting of four pounds of corn, three
pounds of oats, two pounds of wheat
bran and one pound of linseed meal
would do very well. With corn silage
this ration could be reduced one-third
Much depends upon the individuality
of the animal. He should be made to
carry as much flesh as possible, so
long as it does not interfere with his
use as an active breeding yire.
