Interesting Lectures on the At
ricultural and Stock Raising
Prof. Elliott of the Experiment
Station at Bozeman Talks on
. Dairy Industry.
The second annual meeting of the
Farmers' Institute was held at Lew
istown on Thursday last. Very in
teresting talks on agriculture and
dairy farming were made during the
meeting, while a series of enlighten
ing facts on the raising of stock were
given by J. W. Pace of the Stockman
and Farmer. The gentlemen who ad
dressed the meeting were: AY. AY. AViley
manager of the AViley Transportation
of the National Park: Professor Elliot
of the Bozeman Experiment Station
and .1. AA'. Pace of the Stockman and
Mr. AViley lectured on the success
ful raising of clover and alfalfa and
quoted tire successes of the Gallatin
valley as the basis of his remarks. lie
laid stress on the fact that the raising
of a crop of clover on played out land
rested it in a manner which was far
superior to summer fallowing as well
as being more profitable.
Prof. Elliot in the course of his re
marks on the dairy industry, men
tioned the great opportunity for the
thorough opening of the dairy indus
try by reason of the establishment of
the Lewistown creamery whicli af
forded excellent opportunity for the
profitable disposal of milk and cream.
The Professor strongly recommended
the farmers to patronize this industry
and mentioned that $10,000.00 annu
ally was sent out of Fergus county to
pay for imported butter and cheese
which might just as well he turned
into the monentrv circulation of the
J. AA'. Pace in the course of his in
teresting remarks on the stock in
dustry advocated t lie raising of thor
oughbred stock owing to the increas
ing shortness of the ranges and to
the fact that a smaller herd of thor
oughbred cattle would net the same
profit as a large herd of lialfbreeds,
the market price of whicli was de
creasing eacli year. As an example,
lie quoted the cattle industry in Tex
as where five years ago 5000 head of
thoroughbred bulls were imported five
years ago and which resulted in rais
ing the average price of cattle by one
On Friday morning the party went
to Moore where a very satisfactory
meeting was held. A number of
Lewistown people accompanied them,
among whom were E. O. Busenburg,.
Robert Morrison and O. AA r . Belden.
Mr. Belden addressed tire meeting for
a half hour on the general agricul
tural conditions of the county and the
advisability of pushing the farming
industry to the front. He recom
mended the support of the Fair As
sociation as a means of thoroughly
advertising the agricultural and stock
raising resources of the county and
advised the patronizing of theJLewis
town creamery on the grounds of de
veloping an important industry of
Fergus county. While the interest
evinced in Lewistown was consider
able, yet it is to be deplored that the
farmers and ranchmen did not more
generally attend the lectures. At
Moore an exceptional attendance was
secured and a deep interest was
showed in the lectures. AVitii the
general iucrease of farming opera
tions throughout the county, it is
thought that the attendance next
year will be far greater.
