In my opinion, one which will to a great extent determine the usefulness tit the dairy herd, write W. J. (illicit In Ilrecdera' Gaittt The trottlng-brcd colt I gradually educat ed up to It work, and It has been well established that Better result can be reached by bcglnuing that education at a very early age. The youngster take to It Icsaona from a natural Instinct which la born and bred characteristic. The development of the dairy calf pre sents a similar lesion, and she must be trained, not to conflict with nalure'a law, but to that end for which she wa born and bred. She la like the colt. In that by unfavorable training she may never reach her beat, yet that function, end-jwed by nature, mutt crop out In ome form, ehjwlng her willing ness and ability to respond, perbapa proportionately to her education, to her true nature. How tbla education rhould be conducted is a nuention upon whlih we are not Infallible, and I can only plve a method which has brought to me very satisfactory nnd flattering result. My practice I to allow the calf to remain with the dam only about six hour. This for the reason that the early removal excites less anxiety of the mother, and I think tbe ca'.f takes more readily to drinking milk from the; pall. I hare roomy box italla for my calve and iinles crowded for room each one ha a separate stall. Here the education begins. I feed liberally of whole milk for the first ill week, after which tbe youngster I gradually weaned onto sweet skimmed milk, warm aa It leave the separator. At this time I think It necessary to add some substitute for the butter fat found In tbe skimmed milk, and for thl pur pose I use old process oil meal, scalded to a Jelly, and mixed with milk. There I soon developed an appetite for grain, and while they will romume at first a very small quantity, it must be re membered that this small amount doe tb? calf Just a much good aa a propor tionately large amount doe a matured animal. I aim to feed alt tbey will eat of ground oat and wheat bran, mixed equal part by measure. They afo have access to good hay, clover pre ferred, and a small amount of corn sil age a soon a they will eat IL I pre fer skimmed milk, oil meal and this grain ration, because they are bone and muscle making foods. 1 1 I consider whole milk, containing butter fa worth 20 cent pound, an extrava gant food, when we can do the work effectually with oil meal worth only 1 rent per pound. Itone and muscle and early maturity are what I eek to de velop in the dairy calf, and with the fools mentioned I push them, rrallx lug that there Is no time In an animal' life when tin food cost of piO pounds, live weight, can be prcdured so econ omically ns when they are young. Put growth I net all to be consid ered, and another point of no lc Im portance Is health and constitutional vinor, which Is promoted by good nl !:iry trca'ment, free from exposure, cleanliness nf pens, plenty of frrsh air, sunlight, exercUe. occasional grooming and kind tieatment. My fall calre are kept In their pen until the warm, run ny day ot early spring, w hen they are daily given a frolic In the yards. In June they are turned Into a small pas ture, but are (tabled night and Inclem ent day, and are fed throughout the summer. Spring calves are atabled during the summer, but are given open air exercUe. In the wlntr tbey are given an hour's airing every day, which develops a fondness to be with the herd, so alien turned out In tbe spring, they have learned to rustle among the older ones, take readily to eating grass, and soon grow Independent of stable feed. Those twelve month of age I think thrive and find iufflclent nourishment upon good pasture and should be fed milk until about this age. I desire a calf to always be In good thriving con dition, but do net encourage any de position to taking on flesh, for If beefy, she Is out of her place, and we are de veloping a fictitious nature for which she was not created. I believe there I to-day an existing evil In the Amer ican show yard. In Judge giving too much enr.iuragemer.t to beefy dairy rattle. lUlrylag In vlartli.
