DON'T SELL THE DAIRY
Uso a Good Slro nnd Improve tho Standard of You? Herd
By Wllber J. Frascr, Chief in Dairy Hus
bandry, Illinois University.
Many dairymen are not raising their
heifer calves; Instead the herd Is re
plenished by buying cows. Four pro
fessional cow buyers sold about 7,000
cows In tho vicinity of Klgin. 111.,
alone, last yenr; besides this many
cows were shipped In by tho dairy
men themselves. On many dairy
farms tho heifer calves, good, bad nnd
Indifferent, go for veal. Where this
Is done It means there Is no provi
sion for perpetuating tho dairy herd or
tho bent cows In It.
The dnlrynian from whom tho Illi
nois station bought cow No, 1 with n
A 3hrewd Young Financier's Clever
Heifers at from Two
three years' record of 105 pounds of
butter fat per year, was making no ef
fort to perpetuate her superior quali
ties but was selling her calves at $2.50
each. This is certainly n ruinous prac
tlco to the dairy business.
Tho cow buyer cannot get enough
renlly good cows to supply his pur
chasers, as but few of the best cows
aro for sale. Tho dairyman himself
must ralso tho heifer calves of his
best cows and not depend on any
body's offerings to replenish his herd.
He has tho breeding stock, tho feed
cheap feed and the equipment. Calf
raising Is n nntural part of his busi
ness. It is absurd to suppose that as
a rule ho can buy as good cows as ho
can raise. Tho reasons are plain. Ho
needs to retnin but few calves each
yenr and can sell tho less-promising
ones. Ho knows tho paromtago of tho
calves and need save nono but those
from high-producing mothers. It Is
far easier to sell inferior stock (to tho
butcher) than to buy cows that aro
A pioniinent dairyman of tho state
Bays of his grade herd: "The heifers
wo raise from our best cows nro bet
ter milk producers with their first
calves than aro tho average innturo
cows wo can buy." Several of our
most progressive dairymen have said
practically the same thing.
Yet In the faco of all this, hundreds
of dairymen mako no effort to save
their best heifer calves, and they
think they have a reason. They say
The Bull Is One-Half of the Herd.
It takes too much milk. This question
was carefully Investigated with 48
ealvoH by tho Illinois experiment sta
tion. Twelve calves at a time were
tested at Tour different times. It was
found they could bo successfully raised
on 150 pounds of whole milk and 100
pounds of sklmmllk. This milk was
fed at the rate of ten pounds por day
until the calves were r,0 days old,
when it was gradually lessened ono
pound per day for ten days ami then
no more was fed. No substitutes for
milk wore used. Only oidlnnry grains
which tho farmer produces, and u
good quality of legume hay were fed,
showing that tho dairyman can ralso
r. calf In this way with almost no ox
ha trouble. Several of these calves
aro now cows In milk and good pro
ducers, Indicating that they wore not
injured by this method of raising.
The sale aluo of tho milk fed these
calves was as follows:
mo n, whult! milk ifi ti p..r ion i.5o
4'jO lb. hUIiii mill; Q $u so per 100 l.'O
And these pi Ices of milk aro liberal,
especially as they aro nahl at thn farm
nnd no money or labor Is expended In
hauling the milt' to market. It Is not
so expensive to ralso a calf as tho
dairymen have thought. Tho grain
and hay consumed by tho helfors of
high quality will give much bettor ro
turns than tho samo feed fed to cows,
liaising tho helfor calves of good
high-producing cows, is a great fuuda

A fine dairy slro can be bought for
$150, and with 40 grade cows at $00
per head, tho herd comes to $2,400.
The bull costs only one-seventeenth of
tho Investment, yet ho will Improve
the future herd as much aB the other
slxteen-seventeenths. The extra $100

Forty-ono nnlmals aro purchased;

From generation to generation tho

OMK Interesting facts come
to light when one Is looking
up tho subject of ostrich
5SKS fathers. It Is profitable to
become acquainted with
these. The ungainly bird of fine
plumage, whoso splendor wo bor
row and Improve upon, Is grown
In South Africa and In our own
country. South African species fur
nish the best quality of feathers.
The birds aro plucked for their plumes
onco In every eight months or three
times In two years.
Loudon Is tho great central market
for raw feathers. Huyera generally
go there to obtain their stocks and buy
the feathers which have been sorted
Into different grades and sell at so
much per pound.
It is curious to observe the features
that make a plume moro or less val
unable. It Is tho practiced eye alone
that can observe all the points of dif
ference. Width of tho flues, quality
of the fiber, length, texture, color and
absence or presence of scars are all to
be reckoned with.
The business is fascinating in all
departments: The buying, manufactur
ing and selling. Each season Is a new
chapter In tho long story of the os

feather has nodded upon the head of

Ostrich, especially In high grades, Is
a good investment for women who can
afford It. It will not grow less val

tlmo goes on.
Although ostrich plumes hold first
place In the matter of decorations for
the hat and coiffure, ostrich libers are
worked up Into other decorative
pieces. Pompons and mnny airy
fancy branchings are seductively
placed on tho latest millinery. In Fig.
