The sheep husbandry which obtains
on 10 per cent of our farms at present
considers the production of wool and '
Ijimbs, the latter to be marketed in
normal season. We cannot see any
thing but encouragement for this plan.
w e have attained large proportions
as consumers of mutton. Study any
of our large markets, by 10 year per
iods, and note the phenominal growth
in the receipts of sheep and lambs;
in 1870 the Chicago market received
350,000; in 1880, 336,000; in 1890,
2.180,000; in 1900, 3,500,00; in 1910.

17,000,000 sheep and lambs anually
in this country or a total weight of
Approximately, 80 per cent of these
animals are lambs, and the bulk of!
the supply comes from the west ay
present, but this supply Is likely to .
be reduced because of the restriction
cf the range. If the supply is kept
up to the demand of consumers it
will devolve upon us to grow more
6heep, and with production reduced
in the west we shall be assured of
more remunerative prices for a good
With increased consumption it is
only natural that a part of the de
mand will be very discriminating in
wbat it buys. We can send better
lambs from our farms to the markets
than can the ranges of the west, and
since we can do it, we are missing
our opportunity if we do not do it.
We should give our flocks better care
aid attention for the day is present
v. hen in efficient handling of any fea
ture of farm operations will prove un
profitable. Producers of lambs should never
forget that the lamb that is not fat
cannot grade as prime The offering

food which will perhaps give his crop ;
an extra start in spring and enable
it to draw more heavily upon the soil
than it otherwise would, thus using
in the one crop more plant food than
was applied in the fertilizer. Such a
system appears to be profitable for
the year, but in most cases it leaves
the land poorer than at the begin-;
ring, so that ultimately the system
cf using small amounts of acid phos-,
phate or so-called complete fertilizer :
tends toward land ruin. !
While the application of raw rock
phosphate produces but little effect
during the first year or two, where it
is used liberally it usually pays for ;
itself during the first rotation even ;
though three-fourths of the phosphor-!
us applied remains in the soil for the
native lambs. In preparing our lambs ; benefit of future crops and for -the
for market we should keep in mind j d finite enrichment of the land
that in summer the consumer prefers
fat lambs weighing between 70 and 80
pounds. In winter the weight may get
up to 85 or 90 pounds.
