In Breeding for Dairy Cows It Is Important to Have a Purebred Sire He
Represents Half the Value of the Herd From a Breeding Standpoint.
(By D. S. Burch, Bureau of Animal In
dustry, United States Department
of Agriculture.)
Purebred live stock has about 40
per cent greater earning power (apart
from its breeding or sale value) than
scrub stock.
The superiority of purebreds on a
utility basis is due principally to:
Better conformation and quality, In
creased production, more economical
production, and earlier maturity.
When purebred sires are used to Im
prove farm live stock the offspring is

more salable than that of non-purebred
sires and brings nearly 50 per - cent
greater returns.
The foregoing are a few results of
a recent Inquiry conducted by the
bureau of animal Industry, United
States Department of Agriculture. The
figures are based on about 25,000 head
of breeding stock owned by 525 experi
enced live-stock owners. Besides, the
same persons own 30,000 fowls on
which the poultry results are based.
All of these stockmen have for several
years an average of nine used pure
bred sires to head their herds and
Figures Are Conservative.
The figures mentioned were obtained
during the last part of 1921 in a peri
od of marked depression In the live
stock industry. Partly for that rea
son they are considered conservative
even though pointing to an unusually
nig ti . -value- or pureoreas over com
mon stock.
The purpose of obtaining this new
information was to supply an increas
ing demand for facts of greater scope
than single short-time observations.
With the development of the Federal
State campaign for "Better Sires
Better Stock" the Department has re
ceived an unusually large number of
requests asking what purebreds can
do for the man who does not aspire
to become a specialized breeder.
"What can I expect from purebred
them the proper care and opportunity
to prove their worth.
The bureau has abundant evidence
corroborating this belief. One farmer
relates that the impelling force which
prompted him to acquire purebreds
was the need for more income. He
reasoned that ownership of purebreds
was not the proverbial wealthy man's
diversion, but the poor man's necessity,
He obtained the best foundation stock
within his means and gave it good
care ; it increased his returns 100 per
The inquiry shows that for the most
part purebred animals of good type
are readily obtainable. But special
requirements or a desire for the less
common breeds generally involve some
difficulties and higher prices.
About 98 per cent of the purebred
live-stock owners reporting to the De
partment were satisfied both with the
purebreds themselves and the progeny,
except when they expressed the de
sire for still better stock. As one breed
er explained, the desire for improve
ment is necessary for progress. A
few had unfortunate experience with
purebreds of inferior quality and point
ed out the need for making selections
with great care. Practically all re
ports agreed on the principle that su
perior quality among purebreds them
selves is invariably worth a higher

dams, as a utility proposition?" That
is essentially what scores of thought
ful people want to know.
Superiority of Purebreds.
The superiority, based on utility, of
purebred over common stock is evident
from the following figures :
Superior Earning
Class Per cent.
Dairy Cattle 47.8
Poultry . 40.7
Swine 38.3
Sheep "... 37.8
Horses 37.2
Beef Cattle 36.8
Goats :...3S.8
Average for all classes (weighted) .....40.4
The relatively high percentages rep
resenting the earning power of well
bred dairy cattle and poultry over
scrubs are explained doubtless by the
greater facilities for keeping produc
tion records of these classes of live
stock, thereby contributing to their
A Profitable Investment.
The average reported increase In
financial returns from live-stock oper
ations, traceable to the use of pure
bred sires, was 48.0 per cent. This
result includes the returns from both
the sale of breeding stock and of ani
mals and products for market. The
data appear to -show exclusively that
well-bred animals are good property
not simply for the experienced breed

Character, Soundness and Good con
mary of the study to be dealt with
more fully in a circular which the De
partment Is preparing for publication.
1. Based on utility alone (entirely
apart from breeding or sales value)
purebred live stock has an earning
power from a third to one-half greater
than scrub stock. The average su
periority of purebreds over scrubs for
all classes of farm animals is about
40 per cent.
. 2. Of the principal points in which
purebreds excel other stock,' the most
prominent are : Superiority and uni
formity in conformation and type,
greater sale value, greater and more
economical production, and earlier ma
3. Surplus purebreds are readily sal
able at satisfactory prices in a ma
jority of cases ; but sales and prices
depend largely on the quality of stock
as shown by breeding and production
records, also on the business ability
of the breeder. - ..
4. With rare exceptions, purebred
sire users are satisfied with the qual
ity of the offspring obtained, except
that the desire Is created in many
cases to further improve the quality.
5. The progeny of purebred sires
has practically a 50 per cent greater
sale value than the progeny of non
purebreds. 6. Purebred sires of good quality
are readily obtainable In the experi
ence of three-fourths of the breeders
reporting. The principal difficulties
are: Paying the price and finding the
desirable type, but there Is practically
unanimous agreement that the results
justify the cost.
7. The average Increase In financial
returns, from live-stock raising, trace
able to the use of purebred sires is
48 per cent.
8. Each breeder of purebred live
stock influences, on an average, about
nine other persons to raise superior
9. Of the chief influences which
cause farmers to become breeders of
purebred live stock, the three foremost
are: Reading agricultural periodicals
and bulletins, general observation, and
county agents.
10. The principal methods by which
breeders expect to continue to Improve
their stock are : Use of superior sires,
careful selection and mating, md use
of superior females.

Evil One Declared to Have Assisted
Monk to Perform Work, for

One of the most famous copies of

which bears the curious title, "The
Devil's Bible." It Is an exquisite piece

holm at the conclusion of the Thirty
Tears war.
According to tradition this Bible
was the work of a poor monk who
was condemned to death for some
defection, but was told that the sen
tence would be commuted If he would
copy out on asses skins the entire
Bible in a single night. He agreed
to try to do it but, finding the task
too great, made a compact with the
devil to exchange his soul for the
required transcript. The. devil kept
his part of the bargain, and the work
was finished on time. The monk's
life was spared by his marveling
Judges, but tradition is silent as to
how he kept his end of the agreement.
