tra of more intensified farming, lin
stock abd dairy industries arc ccr

the Bend country. The farmers
who are moving onto the irrigated
tracts hereabouts arc gradual
seeding fields to clover and alfalfa,
&ud the products of these fields will
n time be converted into butter
end milk, fatLccf and pork. One
of the most profitable industries in
sa irrigated country is the produc

And his opportunity will be a

Idaho. Iritmiu); is urstintil to become
a Ktcat industry in tins section, anil
tiencc the following article eolltaitis
much of interest.
The rapid rise iu land values and
the consequent reduction in the
farming unit, make it imperative
that a radical change take place iu
the present method of farming
The large areas where hay and
Krnln arc being raised must neces
sarily be cut down to smaller areas
and devoted to different systems of
tillage. It is entirely possible to
produce several times the value per
acre that our farms are now pro
ducing, thus providing homes for
many more people, eivuiir us a
greater population and wraith.
To do this we must study and
adapt ourselves to the changed con
dition of more intensive cultivation
of the soil. Southern Idaho is par
ticularly adapted to this because of
the wonderful productiveness of the
soil. This is especially true if the
growing of alfalta and dairying arc
made the prominent features.
Alfalfa has a wonderful power of
enriching the soil and is unsur
passed as a food for the dairy cow
on account of its high percentage of
piotein. Protein or nitrogenous
compound is the most costly ele
ment of foodstuff in the Eastern
and Middle' states, but wherever
alfalfa is grown, protein is the
cheapest and yet the most necessary
food constituent.
In order to give a clear concep
tion of the value of the alfalfa
plant, I submit the followim: anal
yais: too poui'ds of alfalfa hav
contains 11 pounds of protein, 39 (
carbo-hydrate, 1.2 fat. The best
authorities on feeding dairy ant
mats give, llie following ratio for a
balanced' ration: One pound protein
to fivCpoutidi of carbo-hydrate aud
four .pounds fit. ' A little figuring
will show frora the"- above analysis
that alfalfa contains an exqess of
protein. Experience hits proven
that the addition of sufficient oat
straw, wheat straw, .sugar beet
pulp, beet tops or roots, which are
so cheaply grown, or arc by-products
iu Idaho, will keep a dairy
animal in fine fleyh and a full flow
of milk.
Ureed of Dairy Cattle.
Of courre, under this head, the
dairvmen are divided iu opinion as
to the kind or breed of cattle that
are most profitable. Some prefer a
general or dual purpose cW, such
as the dairy strain or .Short Horn,
or the Ked Ppll and Brown Swiss,
while others prefer the special dairy
purpose animal such as the Jersey,
Guernsey, Holsteiu or Aryslure or
their grades.
The Dual Purpose Animal.
The dual purpose animal is kept
for the purpose of furnishing both
dairy products and beef, and often
times where special conditions exist
they are ery profitable. These
conditions art Adjacent to free
range ou the Lorder of some irri
gated tract, or where large areas or
buttes may arise iu the center of
some tract, where these cattle could
be grazed from the time grass be
gins in April until the 1st of July,
and then after the hay crop is har
vested, the animals cau w turned
into the meadow until the 1st of
January and sometimes Inter. This
would practically give a free range
for cattle a large portion of the
year, reducing the feeding or pas
turing to a minimum. The dual
purpose animal docs wt give, as a
dairy tp?, yet under the above
conditions with the production pf

Dairy Cattle.
The special purpose dairy cow for
nn irrigated farm tttulcr intensive
cultivation appeals to the nvcrngt'
small farmer because of the ease
with which she is mntingcd. and
the profit derived from htr. When
properly handled the profit often
exceeds the value of n cood steer in

tides this the additional income In tile
