In starting a herd one thing should
not be forgotten. A superior boar

good results, but the use of an Inferior

a disastrous outcome. The one method
raises the standard of the herd, the
other Inevitably lowers It.

What Every Feeder Wants to Know
About Methods.
Two methods of finishing beef cattle
which stand out most prominently are
those known as stall feeding and graz
ing. In one Instance the cattle are
placed on feed In the early autumn and
pushed vigorously until ready for mar
ket. In the other case they are fed a
little more than maintenance ration,
the idea being to carry them through
the winter as cheaply as possible and
finish them on grass the next summer.
This method finds favor in all sections
where crazing Is abundant, while stall
feeding must be resorted to in those
localities where grass is difficult to
The relative merits of these two sys
tems of finishing cattle is a matter
of grave economic Importance at the
present time. The stall feeding of cat
tle can only be successful from a finan
cial standpoint when the animals are
handled on a minimum grain ration
and fed some form of roughness that
will be highly palatable and act as a
satisfactory substitute for grass.
Stall Feeding Versus Grazing.
At the Virginia experiment station
stall fed-cattle were given silage, hay
and stover, with different forms of
corn combined with cottonseed meal,
the object being to determine the ef
fect of a succulent ration on the fat
tening process and the best form in
which to feed corn with cottonseed
meal. Grazed cattle were fed on dif
ferent forms of roughness, some of a
succulent aud some of a nonsucculent
nature, for the purpose of comparing
the residual effects of these foods
where animals are finished on grass.
It has been thought by many that cat
tle fed on a succulent ration and
grazed would not do well, a belief
which is not borne out by the experi
ence of the past year. The experi
ments In this instance were so planned
that a comparison of the coat of feed
ing cattle In the stall aud on grass
could be made, and the deductions 'jus
tified by the experiments cannot fail
to be of special value to all who are
Interested in the production of beef.
Some of them are as follows:
Results of Experiment.
It appears that cattle can be handled
advantageously as stockers and finish
ed on grass on a margin of 25 cents
where silage or stover or other inex
pensive forms of roughness are used
during the winter. Mixed hay proved
so expensive that there was a loss with
It on a margin of 50 cents.
The cost of a pound of grain with the
stall fed cattle varied from 7.33 to 0.01
cents; with the stocker cattle from
12 or 0.(51 cents. It cost, therefore,
nearly twice as much to make a pound
of gain on the stall as where the ani
mals were finished on grass.
The cost of maintainintr a stocker
through the winter varied from $7.90
with the stover fed group to $10.21
with the hay fed group. The average
for all groups was if 10.01.
The cost of finishing a feeder varied
from $22.33 to $25.82, or more than
twice as much as It cost to carry over
a stocker. The difference In food cost
is largely offset, however, by rent of
The deductions to be drawn from the
experiments with feeders are as fol
lows: Feed a small grain ration, not
over two pounds per head per day to
commence with, and increase it grad
ually until the cattle are ultimately
consuming fifteen pounds per head per
nay. a liberal ration of silage should
be fed throughout the test, decreasing
me amount consumed toward the close
or the feeding period. Only a mini
mum amount, not over two to four
pounds, of stover or other dry inex
pensive tornis of roughness need be
It would appear that silage may con
stitute the chief source of roughness
for stockers; that a grain ration of two
pounds per head per day is sufficient to
insure their making substantial and
profitable gains during the whiter; that
the best results will be obtained when
tho ration consists of equal parts of
corn aud cob meal and cottonseed meal
or some other food rich in protein.

thick layer of flesh. The horns are
rather long and slender; size would be
classed as medium. In this breed the

developed. The steers, while not large,
are quick, easy feeders.
Good Words For the Devon.
The Devon as a two purpose cow
gets some Strong testimony from farm
ers and practical dairymen. One of
the former says in American Cultiva
tor: Along in the eighties in Ohio we bad
some Durham cows, and the first frost
they would get a how in their backs
and get poor and bawl for more feed,
so they did not suit me. aud I thought
I would try the little Devon. I just
bad money enough for one cow. I put
her by the slrfe of the Durhams. and
she made more butter aud got fat on
one-half the feed the Durhams got.
We then disposed of all the Durhams.
Then we tried the Jerseys - giving
thorn a fair trial but they would not
come to the place with Devons in mak
ing butter or milk to our satisfaction.
So we gave them up. Then we caught
the Ilolstein fever, and that was worse
than ever. She gave plenty of milk,
but it would not test with the Devons.
She would eat as much feed and hay
as any three Devons we had in the
barn. We now have no other cattle
but the Eubics aud will stick to them,
as they have lifted us out of some very
tight places.

excellent quality, th&ir flesh tender

bled with the lean, they are especially
adapted to the requirements of either
the grazier or the dairyman. About a
year ago James Wood of Westchester
county, N. v., and Dr. J. Chetson Mor
ris of Westchester, Pa., after making
careful tests of the milk of the dairy
breeds selected the Devons for their
dairies. They found the Devou milk
superior to all other for the production
of a perfectly balanced milk for city
consumption and obtained the highest
prices. Some years ago a celebrated
chemist reported milk from the Devon
to be the best milk to raise babies on,
as it had more sugar in it and nearer
the milk of the baby's mother.
