FcedJng: Dry Cow*.
Each year adds to my belief that
many cow troubles at time of parturi
tion could be avoided if they were
properly fed. says H. E. Cook fn sa
tional Stockman. There seems to frfc a
general satisfactory .feeling that iff
cow gives no milk any feed will thi
ll there is ai.y time of year when
properly adjusted feed is necessary it
is e dirring the si:: weeks when dry. 'Tins
is about tbe right length of time for
rest. I have heard dairymen say many
times, “I feed grain just as soon us
they begin making bag.” What is the
result? Why, the drain upon the sys
tem had already begun to be more than
tbe feed could supply and the owner
tried to reverse the lever so quickly
and catch up in two weeks what should
have occupied six that a feverish con
dition is produced and then any and
all things hard to manage are likely to
happen. If these cows had been fed
without stopping, not as much, of
course, but say two to four pounds of
bran or mill feed or oats daily, there
would have been muscle and nerve
without fever or indigestion and every
thing would have gone without fric
A Fine Ayrshire Cow.
The Ayrshire cow Lukolela herewith
shown was bred and is now owned by
George H. Yeaton of Dover, X. EL*
and, although new more than eleven,
years old, is giving twenty-five quarts {
of milk per day, says American Culti
vator. She has a record of 18.98
pounds of butter and 425.5 pounds of
milk in seven days, 1,018 pounds of
milk in eighteen days, 1,647 pounds of
milk and 72.9 pounds of butter In one
month and 12,187 pounds of milk and
543 pounds of butter in one year. She

Silage Absurdities.
It is so often said by farmers who
never had any experience with silage
that it is a poor feed, for it causes the ;
cows to drop their calves prematurel}'. /
There is nothing more absurd than a
statement of this kind, says Hoard's
Dairyman. If we should ask these men
what silage is and how it differs from
green corn they would not be able to
give an answer to either question.
These men will eat canned fruit and
never question but that it is better and
more palatable than dried Corn
silage is nothing more or less than
canned corn, and it is better than corn
stover for the same reason tljat canned
fruit is better than dried. The farmer
who has built a good silo and filled it
properly never says that silage is not a
good feed; but, on the contrary, he can
not say too much in its favor.
Not All Depends on the Cow*
The real value of a fine milk cow lies
in her pedigree, her prepotent power of
heredity, that power that a long line of
good ancestors gives her to pass ner
good qualities along to her offspring,
so that a great deal depends upon the
man as to whether he is wise in tbe
selection of the kind of animal for th
work, and with the care and feed there
Is nothing to hinder the dairyman from
