north of the line sixty miles
s.e.ith of i lie north Kansas line. This
is true today. In central Kansas
about the year 1SS0 they got a new
variety of wheat called "Turkey
wheat, and the farmers tried it.
They paid very little attention to it
there at that time. Central Kansas
was making a success of raising soft
wheat. They were too far south for
winter killing of any kind of wheat,
but they sowed small pieces of the
new Turkey wheat." They could
pasture it. and they said it would
srar.d almost anything. The common
s;i iiiu' among central Kansas farm
ers was: "Turkev wheat is as tough
as rye. Vou can't kill it." It grad
ualiy worked north in Kansas and
then to Nebraska. It has made the
north half of Kansas a good farmin
country. It has made south of the
FhiUe and a small strip north of the
Platte in Nebraska a profitable wheat
growing country. It ripens with few
exceptions before the hot winds come
up from Oklahoma and Kansas. It
has onlv been winter killed once in
the last twenty-eight years, and that

a fair growth of straw and the crop
is headed out, we need comparative
! dry weather and sunshine to check
the growth of the straw and develop
ane! mature the berry, and as our
elry weather usually sets in the last
of June, we usually have ideal condi
tions for ripening our winter wheat.
That is the reason that the rich,
moist lands of Illinois are poor wheat
land. The great bulk of wheat the
world over with few exceptions, is
raised in the semi-dry countries.

are through heading they can
commence plowing. Ihe small .thr
eshing machine pulled by a small
tractor that our farmers are getting
in Nebraska now so that every two
or three farmers will do their own
threshing as soon as it is in the
Fhcclt may help us to get ihe shocks
off the ground early so that in the
future we can get our plowing done
earlier and increase our yield. j
A peculiar thing about Turkey;
w heat is that in western Nebraska, j
and the west half of Kansas, where j
rainfall is light and no dews, the'
berry is dark in color. In eastern j
Nebraska, where there is more mois
ture in the atmosphere and wheat
stands in the shock waiting for the
threshing machine, it is a yellow
berry. The dark wheat yields one
pound more flour to the bushel and
makes a stronger flour. The govem
men.t recognizes this fact and when
they fixed the price of wheat they
made the price higher on dark Tur
key wheat. Before the government
fixed the price, there was a premium
in all markets of from 3 to 8 cents
a bushel on dark wheat. Some mil
lers, who were wanting to build up
or hold their flour trade would bid
very high for dark wheat. At pres
ent prices one pound more flour
would make about ii cents a bushel
Our farmers in the south Platte
country should sow two-thirds of
their land in wheat and the balance
one-third corn. etc. This would give
them a chance to some extent to ro
tate iheir crops and yet have the
bulk of their land in the best pay
Turkey wheat lias in the past 25
years saved the south Platte coun
try. It has brought up land to $75
per acre in the western dry belt, and
to ? 2 T 0 an acre in the river counties.
All argument against raising wheat
from 50 miles north of the Platte
river, where it begins to get too cold
and the hard varieties of wheat win
ter kill, to the Kansas line, when
boiled down, simply vanish. They
say binders are high, binders sold
in normal times at around $100. In
war times at $200. A binder lasts
eigV.it years, cuts one thousand acres.
Twenty bushels to the acre binder
costs in war times. 1 cent per bushel.
Twine in war times is a'i cents a
bushel. Threshing normal times,
cent, war times, 3 cents. The total
war time cost 12 li cents per bushel.
Normal times CU cents a bushel.
The entire farm work of raising
wheat commences July 1 at harvest
time. The seeding should be done
by September 20. At that time of
year farmers have no other crops ex
cept alfalfa hay that require their
attention. If they did not raise
wheat, they would have nothing to
do at this time of the year, so the
actual cost of labor to the farmer is
But we hear the farmers say, "1
wouhl rather raise and feed stock."
Raisincr wheat does not interfere at
all witli raising and fattening stock.
The work comes at a time of the
year when we are not fattening cat
tle. We can buy catle and corn and
feed and make profit on feeding the
same as an eastern Kansas, north
ern Missouri and southern Iowa feed
er does. They buy our corn from
northern Nebraska, the Dakotas and
Minnesota and pay more for their
cattle and corn laid down at the rail
road station than we would have to.
Northern Nebraska, the Dakotas and
Minnesota are gradually raising more
corn. The corn belt is moving north.
Their climate is too cold to feed stock
profitably in winter time.
e can always buy their corn
cheap in the fall and early winter.
