The crop of sir al grains in the
Northwestern s ates the prcs ni
year is unusually good. In fact,
it is in a sense phenomenal, ft
is exceedingly important to all
concerned that this crop shall
be saved. If possible, not one
bushel of it should be lost. The
hazard is very considerable that
the farmers may hot be fully
able to properly take care of thjs
great crop. It is fitting, there
fore, that everything in reason
should be done to save this
Much of the grain "grown in
the Dakotas and Montana in
1911 was lost. The loss resulted
from the inability of the farmers
to get the grain thrashed in
time. The outcome was that
snow leu on tne snocKS in me
field and on the flax lying in the
sheaf, with the result that all
of the grain was greatly damag
ed and much of it was a total
loss. This loss might have been
prevented had the farmer stacked
their grain. The harvest of 1911
was late, especially in regard
to the flax crop and as a result
much was buried under the snow
while lying in the sheaf. Tnjs
loss might have been avoided by
stacking of flax as soon as it
was dry. The flax crop of 1912
will also be late, and in order to
Prof. Thos. Shaw
Soil Expert and Scientific Farmer
save the crop it ought to be
stacked as soon as it is dry.
If it was not possible to get
the comparatively light crop of
1911 thrashed on time, it is a
foregone conclusion that the
bumper crop of 1912 will fare
worse in that respect. It will
be simply a physical impossibil
ity to thrash all the grain grown
in 1912 when it should be thrash
ed, if the thrashing is done in.
season. 11 however, the crop is
properly stacked, the farmer
may thrash it at his leisure,
even during the winter season.
His crop is practically safe as
soon as it is stacked, let the
weather be what it will be. The
farmer may then not only thrash
his grain at his own pleasure
when labor is more plentiful
and cheaper than if he thrashed
his grain at the usual season.
The objections that are usual
ly urged to s acking grain are,
that it involves more labor than
thrashing from the shock. That
is true, but when the thrasher
cannot come until much of tne
grain is lost, as it stands in the
shock from shelling and other
causes, the loss lar more than
onsets the advantage from
thrashing the gram from the
shock. It is morally certain
that the present season, the
thrasher cannot overtake the
work when it ought to be donq'.
f, therefor, loss is to bo pre
vented, much of the grain will
have to bo stacked.
The advantages from stacking
much or all of the grain includes
the following : .(1) It insures
the crop from loss by birds, by
undue shelling, by hail and
snow, and also by rain, should
the weather prove showery. (2)
It enables tho farmer to diso his
land soon as tho shocks have
been removed and to plow it la
ter, thus putting it in good
condition for growing of crops
next year In this way tho mois
ture now in the ground may bo
so conserved as to make practi
cally sure a crop in 1913.
It does not riquiro great skill
to stack, but, of course, experi
ence is necessary to insure per
fection in stacking grain. The
method to be followed'is in out
line as follows: A tier of sheaves
should be laid after the fashion
followed in building a round
shock. This tier should be as
wide as the bottom of the stack
and in circular form. The stack
er then begins in the center of
the stack to lay the next tier.
The sheaves of this tier lap over
one another so as to make the
center the highest part, the lap
being less towards the outside of
the stack. The butts of the
last tier of sheaves should ex
tend beyond the sheaves of the
first tier. Each succeeding
tier is laid similarly, graduadual
ly increasing the height of the
stack relatively in the center
and gradually swelling the di
ameter by the over lapping of
the butts until the" height of
about 10 feet is reached. A few
tiers then follow of an equal cir
cumference, and then the stack
shrinks in diameter with each
succeeding tier, keeping the
center high until the last tier
of sheaves is laid. The narrowing
of the stacks is brought about
bv not permitting the sheaves
of each tior last laid to extend
so far out as those of the preced
The stack should not have a
diameter more than will enable
the men on the stack to work
without discomfort. The one
who lays the sheaves usually
treads on each, as ..he Jays it
The sheaves should be pitched
onto the stack from the wagen
pn different sides of the same.
If all are pitched on from the
one side the stack will settle
most on the opposite iide, hence
the stack will naturally tip to
that side. The top covering
should be of some material that
will readily turn rain. For this
purpose there is nothing better
than , slough hay or Kentucky
blue grass. If kept high in the
center and properly spread, it
does not take much for each
stack. The stack should not
be so wide that it will call for
the work of more than two
men to build it. One take
the sheaves as they are thrown
onto the stack from the wag
on and pitches them to the
The stacking ought to be done
as soon as the grain is dry. It
may be necessary to delay, how
ever, until the gram is all cut;
that is, it may be necessary to
delay stacking each kind of
grain until that kind is all cut.
It is ready to stack in a few
days after it is cut. The num
ber of days called for to leave
the grain in the shock will de
crease with the increasing ripe
ness in the grain. When build
