I THE DJSERET FARMER Saturday, JULY 25, 1908.
I , DAIRYING H FEEDING THE DAIRY COW. B Our present knowledge of feeding H can be boiled down into the follow- H ing maxims: H The more food the cow can be in H ducrd to cat, the more milk she will H produce. Cows do not usually eon' H sume more food that they can prop yl erly digest. The ration, therefore H should be made as palatable a$ poc H siblc in ordor to induce (ire cow to H oat large quttatftics. H The larger the amount of protein H in the ration, the larger the milk flow. H Protein in the ration is essential to H the production of the milk. H The less energy required to digest H the ration, the larger the milk flow. H The richer the ration, the richer the H manure The- dairy farmer must Joelt H here for a large part of Jiis profit. H No two cows can be fed' alike, l$ah H must be studied difforeitly. Increase , H the protein in the nation and watch H' the milk flow. Professor C. L. H Bench. m SHIR YOUR CREAM IN BLUE M TOP CANS.

Strangely enough the average Am erican farmer has been persistently engaged in making a complete hodge podge of his cattle for a hundred ywtrs or more. Go on to any farm almost, and one will sec all sorts and sizes", all kindfe of color, showing that the Owner has followed the mixing idea in his breeding. This is all wrong, if the farmer is after the most profiU.hl'C dairy cattle he can produce. Tf such farmers were students of the laws of heredity, they would know better. Occasionally, but rarely, how ever, is an out-cross from any estab lif bedtime of preceding productive of beneficial results. jot one fiarmcr in a hundred will hcmc .a breeder of registered cattle. As far as he will go is to purchase registered sire. If he will follow the experience of the most successful mien, who have thus established high ly profitable herds, he will stick to the brood of 'the first bull. He can safeb brood each bull to his own heif ers If they arc strong and vigorous BWt when it comes to the breeding of the grand-daughters he should se lect Another sire of the same breed and of the same family. It dos not seem to have gotten in to the comprehension of most farm ers that the best results come from concentrating rather than scattering blood linos. In that way the ten dencies of the sire and mother can be made to unite with each other in the resulting progeny. If farmers tnrt to grade up with Holstelns they should stick to Hojstgiusithc same with Jerseys, Ayrshires or Guernseys. The longer they breed in one line the . piore true to the breed typc,ajn,d col- or will their cattle become. This they will find to be n big advantage when they wish to sell any of their cattle. The other day wc received . letter from a man in a distant city who wished to purchase a grade Guernsey cOw. He was very particular about her being of full Guernsey type and color and would pay $20 more for Such a cow, even if she wcre.no bet ter as a milker than others of not so tfrontturicctS Guernsey type. The buyers who come to Wiscon sin to purchase Holstcin cows for other states arc particular to demand cows that arc typical Holsteins. Such cattle the farmer cannot furnish if he has been flopping about breeding to one breed, then another. It will be a grand day for dairy cat 'llc when the farmers shall have in formed themselves better on what is best in the line of a breeding policy. Hoard's Dairyman. INJURY TO COW'S TEAT. Editor 'Dcscrct Farmer: I licvc a Jersey icow that has had the end of one teat cut off from which the milk leaks out. Could anything be done to stop this leakage and save the teat? Tf the toat were dried up would the production of milk of the cow be diminished? How would you pro ceed to dry it up? Answer By H. J. Frederick. Where the small circular muscle on the end of the teat is cut off or injured the milk will leak out. This can be overcome by inserting a bougie or stopper into the milk duct. It is much the shape of a collar button and ocludcs the duct. .It -can be left in from one milking to another; it is us ually made of gutta-pcrchia and it acts as a stopper in the end of teat, A caustic could also be used to con tract the end of the teat and possibly close it enough to hold the milk. If you wish to stop the milk in that quarter, a caustic must be injected Into that quarter and this should be done when the cow is dry. 1 ; 1 r THE SPARTAN MOTHER.
