POINTS OF IDEAL DAIRY COW
Excellent Hints Given Which May i
Help Farmer in Selecting Ani
mal for His Herd.
In selecting cows for dairy herds
there are several essential points to
The cow should have great stomach
capacity; avoid a round bodied cow
whose ribs are short, and a flat-ribbed
cow. There should be ample room for
the udder, which should extend well
forward and not hang down. The
Ideal Dairy Cow.
The dairy cow should be deep and
wide from 1 to 2 as this gives her large
capacity for rough feed. The back
from 1 to 4 should be sharp, with little
flesh, when she is in good condition.
She should be well cut up behind so
that the udder can extend well up, as
at 3. Her flank should be well arched,
as at 5, to provide room for a large
milk veins should be large and the
farther they go the better. The udder
should be loose and pliable, when
empty not fleshy.
The eyes should be large and bright
and project well out from the face.
This is a strong indication of the
nerve force needed for strong diges
tion and large milk secretion.
LACK OF SHELTER FOR COWS
Exposure to Cold Rains Causes Big
Drop in Milk Production Clean
liness Is Important.
(By C. II.
ECKLES Missouri College
The dairy cow often suffers the most
from exposure to the weather before
real winter has begun. After steady
cold comes the cow is generally
stabled. Exposure to cold rains is
often more injurious to the animal
than the colder but dry weather in
The dairy cow is not like the fat
steer, protected from cold by a layer
of fat. As a result, bad weather
causes a big drop in milk production.
So long as the weather is dry it Is just
as well to leave the cow outside nights,
but every cold rain should find her
It is not necessary in the climate of
Missouri to go to any great expense
on most farms in order that the barn I
may be warm. The main thing is to j
have tight walls so there is no draft
or wind, and a good roof. Care should j
be taken in arranging the stalls in
the form of n nlatform of the right 1
length and a gutter of sufficient depth j
to hold the manure. The cleanliness
of the milk depends to a considerable
extent upon having the barn built so
the cow will keep herself clean.
fROUBLE WITH CALF SCOURS
Overfeeding, Sour Milk Pails and Ir
regularity in Feeding are Usu
ally the Causes.
Probably the greatest difficulty with
which the calf feeder has to contend is
scours. Overfeeding, sour milk pails,
cold water and irregularity in feeding
are usually the causes, says a writer
in Field. As soon as signs of scours
are noticed it is recommended that the
milk be red. iced to one-half, and that
a teaspoonful of dried blood be added
to the milk fed. No dried blood that
has not been thoroughly sterilized
should be used. In severe cases of
scours, the addition of one or two eggs
with the dried blood has been found to
be very effective. In severe cases, it
is recommended that the calf be given
one ir two ounces of castor oil in the
morning wlm-h is followed in about 12
hours by 1.") drops of laudanum and a
teaspoonful of dried blood.
CLEANLINESS IN DAIRY BARN
Two Hours Should Elapse After Feed
ing, Bedding or Brushing Before
Milking Is Begun.
Feeding, bedding or brushing up
should never take place within two
hours before milking. The dust raised
by these operations takes a long time
to settle, and if these operations are
conducted shortly before milking, a
very considerable quantity will of ne
cessity find its v;a$ Into the milk cans
For this reason, also, uncovered can
and pails, with or without milk i
them, should never be left standing i'i
the barn, but should be removed to th
isllkhouse where the air is clean.

FINE FIELD OF SOY BEANS ON PURDUE FARM.
(From the United States Department of
Few agricultural products can be
utilized in such a great variety of ways
as the soy bean. The whole beans may
be utilized for food as are the seeds of
other legumes, or the oil alone may be
consumed. The oil resembles that of
cotton seed in mnny ways, but Is of a
more pronounced drying character. In
addition to its availability as a food,
soy-bean oil has found important uses
in the markets of the world for making
paints, varnishes, soaps, rubber substi
tutes, linoleum, waterproof goods and
lubricants. It is also used in the Orient
for lighting and In the manufacture of
In .tapan the soy bean forms one of
the most important articles of food in
use. It is one of the principal Ingredi
ents in the manufacture of shoyu (soy
sauce) miso (bean cheese), tofu (bean
curd), and natto (steamed beans). The
beans are eaten also as a vegetable and
in soups; sometimes they are jacked
green, boiled and served cold with soy
sauce, and sometimes as" a salad. A
"vegetable milk" is also produced from
the soy bean, forming the basis for the
manufacture of the different kinds of
vegetable cheese. This milk Is used
fiesh, and a form of condensed milk is
manufactured from it. All of these
foodstuffs are used daily In Japanese
homes and for the poorer classes are
the principal source of protein.
Used in "Diabetic" Foods.
The use of the meal remaining after
the oil is extracted from soy beans has
become an important factor in several
European countries during the last few
years, and to some extent in America,
as a food of low starch content. Soy
beans contain at the most but a slight
trace of starch, and extensive experi
ments in America and Europe indicate
the value of the bean and its products
as the basis of foods for persons re
quiring a low starch diet. Soy-bean
j flour enters largely as a constituent in
many of the so-called diabetic breads,
j biscuits and crackers manufactured as
j food specialties. The flour or meal can
be used successfully in the household
! as a constituent of muffins, bread and
biscuits In much the way in which
cornmeal Is used.
An artificial milk like that manufac
tured in the Orient has been produced
in small quantities in the United States,
and recently a factory has been
equipped to make this product. Such
milk can be used for cooking in the
household, and by bakers, confectioners

CLASS SORGHUMS IN GROUPS
Saccharine Used for Manufacture
Sirup Grains Are Adapted to
J. F. NICHOLSON, Agronomist. Uni
versity of Arizona.)
The sorghums are generally classed
into two groups: The saccharine, a
mild sorghum used for sirup making
or for forage, and the nonsaceharine
sorghum, sometimes called grain sor
ghums, used for grain and forage.
The grain sorghums are of tropical
origin, and possess the ability of flour
ishing best in hot climates. They are
particularly drought resistant, and ad
mirably adapted to the semi-arid re
gions of the South. They reach their
best development under eight to ten
inches of rainfall during the growing
There are three general types of
grain sorghums classified according to
the character of head :
1. Katir, with compact, erect heads.
2. Durra, with compact, pendant

such products should indicate Miat the
substitution has been made; otherwise
it would constitute adulteration under
the food and drugs act.
In addition to its use for flour and
milk, the soy bean can be prepared as
human food in numerous ways. The
green bean, when from three-fourths to
full grown, has been found to com
pare favorably with the butter or lima
bean. The soy bean has been utilized
not only In the United States but in
European countries as a substitute for
the coffee bean. When roasted and
prepared, It makes an excellent sub
stitute for coffee. In Asia the dried
beans, especially the green-seeded va
rieties, are soaked in salt water and
then roasted, this product being eaten
after the manner of roasted peanuts.
The yalue of soy-bean mal for pro
ducing meat, milk and butter Is well
established. It is one of the cheapest
of the highly nitrogenous feeding stuffs
and is therefore one of the most eco
nomical for balancing rations deficient
in nitrogen. Its use in America is con
fined at the present time almost entire
ly to the Pacific states, where it is con
sidered a valuable feed not only by
dairy men but also by poultry men.
Owing to its high content of protein,
the meal should be used with the same
precautions as are okaerved with other
highly concentrated feeds, to avoid di
gestive troubles. As regards digestibil
ity, soy-bean nfcal compares very fa
vorably with other oil meals.
As a Fertilizer.
The utilization of soy-bean meal for
fertilizing purposes has been confined
almost entirely to Asiatic countries.
Following the recent production in the
Southern states of bean cake and oil
from American-grown beans, however,
fertilizer manufacturers have taken an
active interest In the fertilizing pos
sibilities of the meal. Analyses by the
United States department of agricul
ture have shown that while soy-uean
meal, like cottonseed meal, has a high
fertilizing value when applied directly,
a more economical practice would be
to feed the meal to stock and apply the
resulting manure to the soil.
In the United States two methods of
extracting oil from soy beans the hy
draulic and the expeller processes
are used by oil mills, the latter produc
ing the highest yields. Extensive tests
with domestic beans indicate that one
ton of seed will yield by the expeller
process an average of .'50 gallons of oil
and 1,000 pounds of meal, the differ
ence (about 173 pounds) representing
the loss due to cleaning and the evap- !
oration of moisture driven off after the J
beans have been crushed and heated. I
