Trn yearn ago I taught a Guernsey
bull of h fashionable breeder of world
wide reputation, writes It. K. himlck
In Kimball's hairy Farmer. Thin
breeder hntl taught the hull as calf
to bead his own herd, luit Ht the nge
of shout a year the calf developed a
somewhat durk uiuxilc, and as this Is
not permissible in fashionable Guern
seys the animal wni offered to me as
one of the most promising; animals of
the breed for practical purposes. I Rot
the bull when ho was a year and a
half old and bred tuy common cows
for the next three years, the third year
, Inbreeding to his own heifers.
i It hflpiened that spring. that there
was a great deal of trouble with calves
all over the country. They bad scours
and were weak and puny. My own
were no exception to the rule, and 1
attributed the trouble to the Inbreed
ing and so decided to sell the bull. I
got auother and have had no trouble
since: neither have my nctghtmrs who
did not use my bull. I am convinced
new that the trouble was not with the
bull or the breeding, as those wbo bad

him after had no such trouble, and I
bad just as much trouble with the ohl
cows as with the daughters.
The party I sold to sold the bull
at auction for $15. although I paid $T.'i
and he paid me the same. The party
that had him last used him two years,
when ho was killed by the cars. When
I let blm go I had not yet milked any
of his daughters, but as soon as I did
I found that I had lost a prize In letting
the bull go. The calves that came
from the Inbreeding were even better
than the first grades. Others who had
used hi in found the rauie thing, and.
though bull that have cost three times
as much have been brought In. any
thing with the blood of my old bull
commands a premium over anything
else la the couutry today. The man
that had him last told me recently that
If be could dig him up alive today he
would willingly pay $2,000 for him,
and 1 believe he was worth J.YOiHl of
any man's money.
We cannot know the real value of a
bull until we have tested his daugh
ters, aud for that reason when selling
a bull It Is well to reserve the right
to buy him back If desired when his
daughters have been tested.

FEEDING DRY COWS.
Grain Ration Should Be Reduced
While Cows Ars Not Milking.
During the eight or ten weeks that
cows go dry their food should be
chiefly roughage. A daily allowance
of two pounds of bran or oats or a
mixture of two parts each of bran and
oats and one part of linseed meal or
corn oil meal makes a proper feed
for a -ow near calving. Some roots,
cabbage, pumpkins or squashes are
also very good

Silage For Beef Making.
A large number of experiments
have been curried on at the Iowa sta
tion to determine, the ufliciciicy of si
l.igo as a Kteer feed and to learn the
best methods of feeding It. Without
a single exception, t tie silage fed cattle
have returned a greater profit than
where clover alone was fed as rough
age. Still better results were obtained
by glvlug both clover and silage In
asmuch as It is fundamentally Impor
tant thnt we grow legumes, such as
clover or alfalfa, upon the farm. It
seems very fortunate that this com
bination works so well for feed. Al
falfa should give slightly better results
than clover because of its higher pro
tein content and better average quality.
Some outs straw may be utilized to
advantage If no legume hay Is avail
able. Steers getting a full feed of si
lage, however, will consume very little
dry roughage. Orange Judd Farmer.
