IblVBSTOGK I j TYPES OF SHEEP FOR UTAH. , '!?!' ' Jo'hnr.lCairie;Il: 1 A'n inquiry was received reccntjy as tfc the advantages of long wool sheep over Mcrnno or short wools. Utah has many varieties of climate and soil and as no one breed is best under all conditions, there is therefore no one best breed for all of Utah. There are "certain sections of the state in which the raising of long wools would j "bc incrcst folly and again there are - sections where the Merinos would not do the best. If the characteristics of 'the two types arc looked into the 'condition's anast' suited can be easily ascertained. The long wools, Cotswold aiul Lin coln, jarc very large, roomy sheep, .used to.good pastures with abundant fccd. These sheep arc not so active ais the smaller Merinos and so do not do ens well in very rough country. The Mlcrino man will tell you that the long wools qtc hard to herd, as they do not keep bunched and are more apt to stray. This is true to a certain extent, and so again they are harder to handle in very, rough coun try. The 'Cotswold and Lincolns arc ihowcvcr, better mothers than the JTcrinos, giving more mjlk and pro tccjing their lambs in better shape, gain the long wool lambs stand cold better for they arc (born with a much longer covering of wool, which soon clrics and serves to protect them. 1hc open fleece of the long wools, i however, docs not carry them through protracted wet spells any better than j docs the dens-cr fleece of the Merino type. The Mcrino is the sheep of the south and southwest range, because this type stands heat and dry, sparce pasturage much better than docs the long wool. Being lighter and more active they get over rough country in better shape than the others and they axe easier to herd and keep together. As there is no cure-all for all dis eases, so there is no breed of sheep for all conditions-. Pick out the breed you think most suited to your lScali ty and stick to that breed. Grading up is the cheapest and quickest way to improve, but you must do the work with one breed. NOTES. The dairy cattle of some counties . arc a sorry looking lot and the -need for improvement is great. The long legged, slim, scrub range cow is not a success as a dairy animal and should be abandoned. Try a few fine breeds as the people of St. George -and Cedar arc doing. If you can. afford nothing more get a pure bred bull. In looking over the cows of six counties this summer some few extra good! cows were seen, a few hundred nK)rc would give a profit, but the big majority belong in the "Robber Cow" class. Weed out tin's lotst class and so advance in dairy industry. BIG BARGAINS in Registered Duroc Jersey Swine. Remember I am the State's Pioneer Breeder arm will pay express. F. R. PEART.
