In making his annual report. A. D. Melyln, chlor of Ihn Hurenu of Animal industry of the Department of Agricul? ture, Kayo: '?Although horses are commanding higher prb es than have been known for1 many years, there Is evidently a great : shortage In their production. The United States Army has for some years I found it 11111101111 to maintain an ade? quate supply o| suitable horses, and ' it seems that if the eilleleney of the* cayalry !s to be ntalttalned It will bo ncdessnry for the government to take] up tome systematic plan to encourage! the breeding of horses of it type suit? able for unity use," During fite past year tho Secretary of War requested the co-opcratlou of the Secretary of Agriculture In evolv? ing some plan for enabling the army to obtain suitable horses. The Secretary of War pointed out th^it. the supply fit horses tit for remounts Is becoming more and more limited, ami Hint the present indications are that the country w ould Und |i Impost Ilde m mount Us army from its own resources In time "f war. and lo rapidly reaching a point where the needed supply of suitable remounts for ihe present strength nt Hi- army would be extremely hard to obt on. If obtainable ut all. As n re null of this Hie department designated representative to Join with a repre? sentative of the War Department considering the subject and formula!" Irtg i plan. Tho Department of Agrl ? nit-are was represented by Oe'orgo M. Rommel, chief of the Animal Husband? ry Division of this bureau ami Ihe War Department by Captain Casner H Con? rad, Jr.. Third Cavalry, United States Army, detailed for duty In th- Qitar lermaoter-Ocneral's Department In con? nection with the purchase of remounts. These men have outlined a plan for breeding horses for army use. which plan Is presented in the portion of this teport dealing with the work of the Animal Husbandry Division. To carry out this plan would require appropria? tions for the use of this department estimated at $250,000 for the first year and $100,000 a year thereafter. The establishment In 1908 of tin- re mount depots has further Improved th? type of horse for the army, as the svs tetn ?f purchasing young horses thtii and four years old. often unbroken, has enabled the government to get the host type of hor.?e before it has cost, the breeder much money and when It could be sold for a reasonable amount. The:'.- horsCH, ? cut to the depots for maturity and handling, and finally is? sued to troops as four and a half and live-year-olds, while costing th*) gov? ernment more per head than horses live and six years old. formerly pur? chased and issued directly to the troops, are very much better horses from the beginning, nr- properly developed at a critical period In their existence, ra? tionally handled, and. when Issuer? "to troops, have been received with enthu? siasm as a great Improvement over the matured horses formerly Issued under j the old System. Keen considering the high market ! value of horses at present, H It believed ' that, under the romount system, horses can he Issued to troops nt not to ex? ceed n total average cost of $'.'25. The latest contract price for cavalry hor*cM is $18.1.75; tor artillery horses. $213.75, Many of tho late contract horses arc young and require some handling ut depots hefore .icing suitable for ser Vlce; others are. mature. Horses purchased us mature under the old sy.ilctn have had a useful life In tin- nrmy of 6.1 years on an average, The better grade of horses, such as nie now being purchased, rationally devel? oped and handled, should und will have a useful average life of ten years; It i Is easy lo see that the better horse. Issued from the depot at a cost of $225. that lasts ten years, is cheaper than the horse costing SIR" to $213, lasting only 6.1 years. In addition, Hie army will 'nave hud a better horse throughout the entire period of use? fulness. The horses being issued front Hie depot could undoubtedly bo sohl nt a limn of Issue at a handsome profll Many Individuals would hling funo prices. It is needless lo say thai If It were possible to purchase them in issue form It would bo necessary tu pay much more than they have cost under the depot system. European countries long; ago found It not only advisable, but necessary, to supervise the breeding of horses, in order lo supply Ihe demands of thelt armies, and every European country of importance, with the exception of Eng? land, has for years been encouraging I ha breeding of the proper type of army remount. Kngland. one of the most important horse countries of Ihe world, has for many reasons only re? cently been forced til this step. It Is interesting to note that practically the same conditions confront England thai confront this country at Ihn present iltne. and that almost the identical stops are contemplated in the two An? glo-Saxon countries to accomplish the same result?suitable army horses in Sufficient number, P.
