EVEN IN COLDEST WEATHER;
THEY THRIVE BEST IN THE OPEN AIR Confinement and Bad Air Am Con ductive to Tuberculosis (By Lord Ogilvy) Our best dairymen take advantage of the dry climate to keep their cows outside except at milking tlme.j usually In yards provided with sheds and hay racks. The danger of tuberculosis la minimized by | so doing, much to the relief of both dairyman and consumer. I confess to some prejudice in this matter and that 1 used to sleep much better on stormy nights when 1 knew that all the stock was well snugged down In close, warm barns where the winter blasts were excluded. 1 was brought up that way and only a lot of hard facta brought me around to a dif ferent wuy of thinking. It aeemde unreasonable to try to heat all outdoors by pouring feed into animals exposed to cold out door atmosphere In winter. The circulation of a lot of close ly stabled cows, however, becomes very sluggish and foul air fre quently breathed over and over does not furnlah enough oxygen for the internal combustion which maintains body he&t. It is very hard to maintain a sufficiently high temperature in the barn without ' the air becoming foul and the tem perature falls when the cows are lying down and inactive and rises rapidly when they are standing and eating their food. When the cow’i milk la weighed at every milking, as In done in all . good dairies, we have an exact rec ord of her health, and any up and downs in her well-being. Mr. Washburn keeps eighty head of Jeraeya entirely out of doors, without other shelter than a board fence, and the self-feeding hay racks about the yard. Some years ago he saya he used to get uneasy on stormy nights and go out with a lantern among the cows. The weather would seem so bad to him that he would open the barn doors and try to drive them in, even though they showed an unwilling ness to go. In every case when they were confined there was & falling off In the morning’s milk. If some of the more unwilling ones were left out they produced their regular quantity. Facta in line with these are at hand from other places, with other kinds of stock, even In lowa, . where steers hsve done better out of doors than under sheds. If they only could have dry beds. The government has only a few reports oa open air treatment of dairy cattle. Two of these are from Pennsylvania and the other from Canada, come from cattle kept in very open sheds, and In both case* the milk return Is ten per rent greater than with those closely housed. Keeping milch co«s free from tuberculosis is so important to the public health that I should be glad to hear of other people’* ex perience along this line. ONE HUNDRED YEARN Starr Napoleon the Firm I mued Mandate for Bert Sugar Culture On the 18th of March. 1811, the Emperor Napoleon dictate the fol lowing note destined to the min ister of the Interior: ‘•The minister of the Interior will make a report to be sent to the council of state.
