Best Protection Against Destructive Beasts Is Woven Wire
Fence With Barb Wire Stretched
Across the Top.
In answering a query as to the best
method of preventing wolves from de
stroying a sheep flock, the Wisconsin
Agriculturist publishes the following:
Many bells on a flock of sheep will
no doubt do good service toward
keeping wolves off though they would
not be proof against attacks from the
bolder animals. A few well trained
shepherd dogs would 6erve the pur*

pose better and would make very ser
viceable animals in other respects in
helping to attend to large flocks. The
best protection against wolves for the
flocks, however, would be wolf-tight
woven wire fence, with barb wires
stretched at the top so as to prevent
the wolves from getting over and into
the sheep pastures. Such a fence
must also be built close to the ground
to present the wolves from digging
their way through underneath. A barb
wire stretched tightly along the
ground line will be very serviceable
In this respect. The woven wire fence
should be at least as high as any
farm fence ordinarily in use is, and
pieces of 2x4's should be nailea or
Should Be Fed at Regular Times
and Never Roughly Handled
by Being Chased by Dog
or Left in Cold.
(By A. D. WILSON, University Farm, St.
Paul, Minn.)
One of our good dairy farmers, liv
ing in Carlton county, who is also a
Farmers' Institute lecturer, Mr. F. B.
McLeran, in talking on "Care of
Dairy Cattle," always emphasizes the
Importance of making the stock com
fortable. He 6ays that if they are
made uncomfortable by being fed at
irregular times, so that they spend a
great deal of their time expecting to
be fed, the discomfort shows in lower
production. If they are made un
comfortable by having a poor bed, by
being roughly handled, by having a
dog set on them, or by being left out
in the cold or allowed to go thirsty,
these conditions result In decreased
production. He emphasizes the fact
that one of the great advantages of
weighing the milk every day, from
each cow, is that it gives one a qntck
check on any condition that brings
about discomfort to his animals. If
any cow shows a dropping off of her
milk flow, as a rule a little observa
tion w) show that she has been made
uncomfortable in some of the wars
mentioned above; and, knowing these
factB, the farmer is able to check
these unfavorable conditions quickly.
One of the points that Mr. McLeran
especially emphasizes is the import
ance of not allowing the cows to st-'y
out in the winter when they are un
comfortable. He states that a good
way to determine this Is to take off
your coat and out in the yard with
the cows, stand around and act Just
as the cows do. When you begin to
feel uncomfortable and feel like eoing

wolves from getting over as they j
cannot get over the projecting barb j
wire arrangement even though they
manage to get up the woven wire tc
its top. The accompanying illustra
tion shows clearly how the fence is
built. Such a fence is of service tc
any sheep farmer who wishes an effi

against sheep-killing dogs as well as
against wolves.

Cows Are Not Soiled to Anj
Great Extent but Pasture Is
Depended Upon for Entire
Summer Feed.
In England cows are not soiled tc
any great extent but pasture is de
pended upon for the entire summei
feed. They say over there that 11
takes two acres to keep a cow goin?
as she should.
Early in August the cows are turned
on the aftermath of the meadows and
later changed back and forth between
the pastures and the meadow.
When taken off the pastures In late
summer the cows are fei a little cot
ton seed cake but they do not get
much grain at any time.
In the winter they are fed roots—
40 to 70 pounds per day, about 13
pounds of straw, half as much hay
and about eight pounds of meal and
oil cake mixed.
The barn yards are paved with cob
ble stones to keep the cows out of the
mud and the manure is saved un
der sheds. Not a thing is wasted.
There are very few creameries in
England and the butter on the mar

than our farmers make.

About six years ago, I was dangerously

said I had kidney trouble. One of the
doctors analyzed my urine and reported
that I had gravel, and further said that
in order to regain my health and life, an
operation would be necessary. I did not
want to bo operated on as I was afraid
that I would not recover, ßomeone told
me of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root and said
it was a reliable medicine for kidney
trouble, so I decided to try it and went
to Mr. Rose, the druggist, at 303 Central
Ave., Minneapolis, and bought a bottle,
took it, noticed results and continued
taking it until I was entirely cured.
Having been free from any kidney
trouble for over six years, I consider that
I am absolutely cured and know that
Swamp-Root has the credit.
