Ten. pSfHOME OF THE more important reasons why we should raise tsU more beef cattle may be briefly stated as follows: (1) As a means of increasing and maintaining soil fertility. (2) As a means ef securing addi tional revenue from idle lands and those that do not now produce profit able cultivated crops. (3) To afford a market for coarse raw products of the farm. (4) To enable us to diversify and rotate our crops. (5) To produce human food to supply local demands. (8) To better enable, us to fur nish constant work for the farm la borers. Having briefly stated the principal reasons why we should grow more beef cattle, let us now discuss them more in detail, with special refer ence to the conditions existing throughout the South: Cattle Feeding and Boil Fertility. (1) The growing of beef cattle may Increase soil productiveness in the following ways: (a) By afford ing a most satisfactory means of sup plying organic matter—humus—to the sell, thereby improving tbe me chanical and moisture conditions, and (b) by Increasing the nitrogen con tent of the soil and by rendering available other plant foods already there. The earlier development ol agricultural chemistry, the absence of live stock to supply organic ma nures, and the ease with which chemical plant foods may be obtain ed are probably responsible for out disposition to look upon soil fertility as a chemical question—or a ques tion of plant foods only. Soil fer tility, however, as regards most lands, is much more a biological, a bacterial question, than a chemical one—much more a question of hu mug ana mecnanicai condition than of supplying additional plant foods The simplest and most direct method of supplying organic matter to soils is through decaying plants, but the plants which naturally grow on the land build It up slowly, while culti vated crops are too valuable te be used directly as fertilizers. No prod uct of the soil which Is suitable for feeding live stock should ever be re turned to the soil direct, before be ing passed through some farm ani mal. These feeding stuffs have a double value, one as fertilizer and another as feed, and by feeding them to good live stock from 75 per cent to 90 per cent of the former and all of the latter may be realized. These are important reasons for maintaining a maximum of live stock on the farm, but It must not be for gotten that stable manure supplies, better than any other materials, the conditions suitable for bacterial life in the soli, and probably because of this we may explain why (he In crease in crops is frequently greater from Che stable manure preduced from feeding a given quantity of feeds than from an application of these feeding stuffs directly to the soil. In view of these facts, we are probably correct in stating that live stock—stable manure—Is essential to the greatest soil fertility. At least, no country has ever yet bulb up and maintained soli fertility with out giving live stock a prominent place in Its agriculture. We Should VtlHte Our Idle land*. (2) Much of the land now In cul tivation does not produce profitable cultivated crops. If these lands were put in pastures, or made te grow le gume crops for feeding cattle, they would produce larger net revenues and he Improved In productiveness. A small part of the lands of the South are producing profitable crops of any sort. Millions of acres from which all the valuable timber has been removed, and large areas thought to be too poor for profitable cultivation, would, If fenced, cleaned up and put In pastures, yield profit able returns on their market value. We have too many Idle and unprofit able acres, w*hlch> consume In taxes and otherwise the profits from our cultivated lands. These must be Improved to become profitable, and with beef cattle they may be made profitable while being Improved. A Market for Omuve Feedstuff*. (3) The high prices of feeding stuffs have been a serious Injury to the Southern farmer. Not alone be cause he has bought them with which to make cotton, but also because it has led him into the false position of assuming that the feeding stuffi produced would yield larger profit! when sold on the market than when fed to live stock. This position bat been made to look more plausible because of tbe cattle ticks and th< poor quality of our cattle, but this false economy should no longer de ceive any one who studies Southern agricultural conditions and our de pleted sol! fertility. Moreover, there are many coarse farm products left In the fields to be largely wasted which may be con sumed by cattle that will pay a good price for them. A notable example of this Is the corn stover In which about 40 per cent of the feeding value of the entire plant Is found. It muBt also be remembered that much more of such farm products might be made and saved for which beef cattle would afford a roady and satisfactory market. The marketing of roars* fodder and hay products Is expen sive. especially when located far from market, because of their great bulk, our bad roads and high freight rates; but they may be marketed In cattle with little cost and less Inconven ience. (4) No crop rotation Is complete without legume srops to be grazed or used as feed for live stock a diversity of products demands larger markets. If the crops produced be ^or,I® crops—and In a diversified ag riculture, having In view the Increas ing of soli fertility these must be In cluded—then beef cattle offer a meana of marketing these crops prof itably. The Direct Returns From Cattle Feeding. (5) The demand for good beef is not supplied. The money obtained from the sale of other crops Is sent IBorkahlro Rota, Cheviot Sheep. Anion Ooata.
