The Possibilities in Beef Production as Illustrated by the Grand Champion Steer at the International Stock Show. BELOW we give the record of the calf that was judged the best steer of any age or breed at the International Live Stock Exhibition in Chicago this year. It is truly a marvelous record and may well command the attention any one in terested in the possibilities of mod ern live stock development.No such calf was probably ever produced be fore. At 304 days old he weighed 1, 130 pounds, an average gain of 3.47 pounds for every day of his life, al lowing 75 pounds for his weight at birth. During no month of the feeding period at the Iowa Agricul tural College, extending from May 1st to November 20th, did he make an average gain of less than 3% pounds per day, and during the month of June he made the aston ishing daily gain of 4.26 pounds.

Age 304 days, weight 1,130 lbs. Allowing a weight of 75 lbs. at birth, the average gain was 3.47 lbs. per day for the 304 days. How Shamrock II Was Fed. Shamrock II came to Iowa State College about May 1. 1910. He was put on a nurse cow. He was kept in i the barn during the day allowed the ' run of a grass lot at night. He was i fed good clover hay, all he would eat, a grain ration of 3 parts corn, 2 parts wheat bran and 1 part oil I meal up to September 1st. After September 1st, he waB given two i nurse cows, fed green corn, stalkr | and ears, clover hay and roots. The i grain ration was changed to boiled wheat and oats. During the month of November he was eating from 9 to 11 lbs. per day of the cooked feed, i about 25 lbs. per day of roots and 5 lbs. of clover hay in addition to the milk of the nurse cows. He never missed a feed from May iBt until sold in Chicago and never appeared the least bit nervous or restless. Shamrock II was sold by public auction on December 1st, to C. H. Morgan & Co., Chicago butchers, ior 60c. per pound. He weighed 1,12 0 pounds, thus netting $672. He is the second highest-priced grand champion steer ever sold in America. In placing the grand champion ribbon on Shamrock II, Richard C. Carden, of Flshmoryne, Tipperary, Ireland, who is considered one of the greatest cattle judges in the world, paid Shamrock II a glowing tribute in the following words, "I have never before seen such a ripe beast for its age, I cannot say too much, for him. He is the best ani mal I have ever seen. I did not con ceive such a ripe beast at his age i existed. He could win at any show 1 in Great Britain.” ' Lessons to Be Learned. Of course, this calf was not fed on a commercial basis; but notwith standing he was given two cows to nurse and fed all he would eat of grain and hay and grass he more J - .11 .... -I.a. A calf of less quality would not have done so; but the selling price of this calf, without counting the premi ums won, paid $2.21 for every day that he lived. It is truly an interesting story and full of valuable lessons for the pro ducer of meat animals: Our read ers may wonder why any animal could possibly sell for 60 cents a pound on foot, but the city dealer in fancy beef knew the value of ad vertising and counted on the pub licity which would be this nurbcase to >-<»/.* his money In Increased trade. “But,” says some one, “he was a grade and not a pure-bred; why then do the agricultural papers and teachers insist on the superiority of the pure-bred animal?” Yes, Sham rock II was a grade Angus, but that does not mean that he was a cross between unlike breeds or that his dam was not a high-grade beef-bred animal. He was a grade of unsur passed quality, but good as he was. he was not good enough to be used as a breeder and was rightfully made a steer early In life and sent to the block: Shamrock n is the best sort of an argument for the use of good pure-bred sires for beef making, and In no sense nn nnm. ment to support the use of a grade sire. Another lesson of no less Im portance to be drawn from this won derful calf, 1b that good feeding Is necessary to excellence in beef pro duction. By “good feeding" we do not stop at liberal feeding, it must also be intelligent feeding, or the adaptation of feeds to the needs of the animal. The farmer has the opportunity to reduce the cost of his feeds by increasing the yields and cheapening the cost of produc tion; but to feed intelligently re quires study—much study and intel ligent personal attention. The great International Live Stock Show at Chicago this year was pro nounced “the greatest ever" in many respects. This show is the great event of the year to many farmers and stock men of the Central and \ estern States, though it is of Bmall interest to most Southerners. W" rus . however, that in a few years the interest in live stock In our ter rltory will be so great that we shall have to send a man to report the show each year.
