Large Nostrils in Animals Indicate
Lots of Lung Power.
Wheat, Bran or Mill Feed Good for Sows-
Do Not Keep Store Pigs Wl'h
Ones to be Fattened.
Wheat middling is one of the best
feeds to give the suckling bows and the
growing pigs.
Do not feed the cow beet too plenti-
fullv. They are depressing on the kid
ney's, promoting too frequent and too
proluse urinating.
A pig is never too young to have a
full feed. Keep him always fat, and
when the market is favorable ; but never
hold for a favorable market alter he
reaches 200 pounds weight.
Larue nostrils in an animal mean lots
of lung power and free use of it. Thin
also means purer oiooa ana more virauty
and vigor. While the horse and ox
should always have large nostrils, other
animals are better for having them.
Do not keen the store pigs along with
those that are to be fattened. They want
different food and in ilitlerent amounts.
And do not keep large and small breed
iiii? sows together, as the small ones get
crowded at the trough and in the sleep
ing pen.
If there has been a horse or other an
imal in the stable that there was reason
to suspect of having any contagious dis
ease, get a pint of sulphuric acid and
put in a bucket of water; then take a
mop or broom and thoroughly scrub the
mangers, walls and floors until well wet
with it. This will destroy the virus.
It is said that 100 pounds of heavy
wool contains five pounds of sulphur. A
little sulphur in the fond of the sheep is
therefore very good, but when fed in too
large quantities it causes sweating and
increases the liability to take cold, be
sides often causing the shedding of the
wool, which is partly due to the undue
heat of the surface of the body.
Is there a cowy odor in the milk some
times? Yes, and it generally comes
from cow manure in the milk, put in
there bodily, either from falling oft' the
cow's flanks or thighs, switched from the
tail or rubbed off the teats by the milker,
too lazy or indifferent to wash them. If
the cow is kept aa clean in winter as she
is in summer, we would hear no more
complaint of the cowy odor in the milk
at one season than at the other.
If a lamb has been on the down grade
while still on the pasture, with freedom
and fresh air, how much worse it ia
likely to be when brought into a flock
and penned up, breathing the fetid air
of a crowded sheephouse, writes the ed
itor of the Sheep Breeder. An unlimited
supply of fresh air will work wonders in
keeping a sheep np and enabling it to
make head against disease; but foul air
and the insufficient nourishment, which
results from its being crowded 'aside by
stronger sheep, will carry it down rapid
ly unless it is separated and given an
extra chance with others of its sort.
Half-bred males looking like the full
bred father seldom transmit anything of
the parent stock to their offspring except
the color and shape. If the butter
making or milk-producing.quulities are
reproduced, it will neunlly be in some
auimal that does not look like the thor
oughbred stock. The desired quality
will more frequently reappear in the
third generation, which accounts for the
occasional improvements in dairy stock
from using grade bulls, but it does not
come soon enough or often enough to
make it profitable to use them, when
thoroughbreds can be bought as cheaply
as they can now.
Prof. Wood of Storr' station, Conn.,
sayB: "Nearly one-fourth of the dairy
cows are kept at a loss, while one-third
are kept without profit. This makes
one-third of the money invested dead
capital. In the winter with the best
cows and good feeding about two-third
of the food is consumed in supporting
life. The profit comes from the other
third. Breed is important in a cow, but
is not everything. With good feeding a
slight profit is received. Add one-eighth
more and the profit is doubled. Judi
cious feeding does not shorten the life of
a cow. Give a variety of food. Legu
minous foods, as peas, clover, etc., not
only benefit cattle, hut the land."
A feed that tends mainly to making
fat is unsnited for. breeding sows at any
time. During the period of gestation
the fietus gets its nourishment from the
dam, and is dependent upon the feed
she takes. It should be mainly of the
kind that produces large quantity rather
than very rich milk. Wheat, bran or
mill feed is the best, and if the bow ia
yonng and growing.add oats to this rather
than corn. This will make vigorous,
straight-backed and long-bodied pigs
even from a young sow. When the dam
is full grown, the fine middling feed with
a little milk and warm dish water will
be better than heavier feeding.
It is no damage to the manure to have
the hogs rooting it over, if it is not drawn
out upon the fields about as fast as made.
Neither is it any injury to the breeding
stock to have them do so. They will be
more vigorous and have stronger pigs if
they have exercise, and it is well to en
courage them to work by scattering a
little corn among the manure before it
goes into the barn cellar. But, while
they can work in the manure heap near
ly all day, they should not Bleep in iU
The heating pile beneath them ia prob
ably warm, and they choose it for that
and not for the sake of the filth, but
such a heat upon one side, while the
other is cold, cannot be wholesome. Pro
vide a warm pen with an abundance of
bedding in it for them to lie down upon
when tired of working, and they will
soon show that they seek the bed
for comfort. If they do not, driving
them in a few times will convince them
that their own nest is the place for them.
Raw roots are qnite as good as cooked
root for them, as the cooked roots are
too watery. If cooked, all th water
should be drained ofT and then bran or
oatmeal mixed with the warm root
when mashed up. Keen them in good
growing condition, but do not get them
too fat.
