The strong points of the breed are its wide range - '»f adaptability, unexcelled feeding qua Hies, great size and unsurpassed : cr°asln& qualities for the production of high-class grades. The Shorthorn gives a large car cass ln Proportion to live weight but the quality of the carcass, from the retail butchers’ viewpoint, is not 1 quite equal to that of the Aberdeen Angus. The meat is slightly coarse, not so highly flavored and the fat and lean not so well distributed as In the Angus carcass. The weak point of the breed is that they are only fair grazers, being better adapt ed to rich pastures and liberal feed ing. It Is probable that both the Short horn and the Hereford, when on short Southern pastures, will pro duce somewhat larger and better feeders to finish for market than will the Angus, but the latter keep in somewhat better condition and are more likely to please the local buyer when sold off the pastures. In the grazing and mountain sec tions of Virginia, eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina, the only parts of the South east of Mis “—■ " m - sissippi River where good beef cattle are produced, the Shorthorn is by far the most numerous and popular breed; but in the other sections of the South the Hereford and Aber deen-Angus probably rank above the Shorthorns in popularity. This is an important point for the consideration of the man who con templates the breeding of pure-bred beef cattle to sell as breeders, for every producer should seek to pro duce that which the market wants most. Formerly the Shorthorns were rather large milkers, and many indi viduals, and possibly certain fami lies, are still producers of large quantities of milk of fair quality. Unquestionably the Shorthorns as a breed are much better milkers than the Hereford or Aberdeen-Angus, but from a beef-producing stand point this is little if any in their favor, for the Hereford and Angus usually produce ample milk to raise their calves well. In recent years, however, especially in this country, the whole tendency of Shorthorn breeding and selection has been to the production of beef and it is now mainly a special-purpose beef breed. HOW TO FEED THE COLT *»»e Matters Deserving « The MOST critical time In the life of a colt, In so far as his growth and development are concerned, is the period between weaning time and when he goes on pasture the following spring, as a yearling. Indeed, this first winter is of vital Importance In the life of the colt, calf, or other animal In which good size and development Is an Im portant factor In determining Its use fulness or value. The colt, weaned at this season. Is particularly likely to suffer. While he Is getting his mother’s milk, food especially suited to his needs. It U less Important that he receive other feeds adapted to his requirements. Moreover, too frequently little at tention Is given while he Is sucking his mother, to teaching the colt to eat the feeds he must live on dur i,n* th* balance of his life. Under these conditions It Is little wonder that when he Is suddenly deprived of his mother’s milk in the fall of the vear. when pastures are dry or short, he falls to make proper growth and starts the winter In an unthrifty con dition. The colt that falls to do well Its first winter Is not likely to ever entirely recover from it. That Is. !nac elvn » ,1 I .. f_i_j . « —~ ...... ivi urH*mpmpnr art* usually permanent results. For these reasons the colt should receive a little special care at weaning time, and liberal feeding during his first winter. Before he Is deprived of his mother’s milk. In fact, from the time he is a month old, he should be taught to eat those '-«ds which are needed to secure his Proper growth. If this be done before he Is weaned the weaning from his mother’s milk will not seriously check his growth, as other feeds will be eaten to take Its place. The colt can not be properly grown on corn and corn fodder alone, or rorn nnd any of the grass hays. ’ At least one half his hay should be from some legume. If the other half of the rough forage can he made up of silage It will be advantageous, for there Is nothing more important for securing good digestion and rapid growth In a young animal than suc culence in the ration. If one-hnlf. or all the hay, is some clean, sweet legume, that has been properly cured, then the grain ration may be 1 part corn and 2 parts oats; but if grass hay must be used, then we would suggest a grain ration con Special Attention After Weaning. sisting of 3 parts of oats, 2 parts of corn and 1 part each by weight of wheat bran and cottonseed meal. When these feeds are not available or are too expensive, good results may be obtained from good peavine hay, and corn and cottonseed meal, In the proportion of 8 to 10 parts of corn to 1 part of cottonseed meal. These should be, and usually are, • available everywhere in the South. When I used the tuberculin test in my herd ten years ago and killed seven animals, completely banishing the disease, I was met with ridicule from my brother farmers. An an nual test for eight years has failed to find a single reaction.
