Description: "This paper is confined entirely to the chicken industry, as it was found that to treat thoroughly all phases of poultry raising would make a bulletin of undue length, and furthermore, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowls, etc., are covered in a satisfactory manner by other publications of the Department.

The methods used on some of these farms are described, and some of the houses and appliances are illustrated." -- p. 2

A Successful Southern Hay Farm

A Successful Southern Hay Farm

Date: 1907
Creator: Benton, Harmon
Description: "In localities where a one-crop system has prevailed for a number of years farms which deviate from this system are of special interest, because they show what types of farming are possible in the section in which they are located. In the cotton-growing States such farms are of unusual interest for the reason that so few of them exist. Much of the hay consumed on Southern farms and plantations is shipped from the North. As a result, hay is high priced in the South. There is room for a considerable number of hay farms in that section. That such farms can be made to pay handsomely is demonstrated by the experience of the farmer who work is described in these pages. Not every hay grower can follow the methods here described. It is not necessary, however, that a farmer should feed steers for their manure, as is done on this farm, in order to be able to grow hay. While nothing else is quite equal to manure, land can be kept in good heart by plowing under an occasional green crop and then using lime and commercial fertilizers. A brief discussion of hay growing under more usual conditions on southern ...

Methods of draining are not so well established for irrigated land as for land in humid areas, which fact suggests the propriety of describing methods that have been tested in specific cases." -- p. 2

Beans

Beans

Date: 1907
Creator: Corbett, L. C. (Lee Cleveland), 1867-1940
Description: "The member of this great family with which we have at this time to deal -- the bean -- is not so valuable from the standpoint of forage or soil renovation, but is among the most valuable members of the great group for the seed which it produces. While the seed is the most important and valuable factor, the power to gather nitrogen and to render the soil better for having been grown upon it is an important consideration and one which should not be overlooked by those interested in maintaining the nitrogen content of the soil." -- p. 6. Topics discussed include the various types of beans and the differences in cultivation between field beans and garden beans.
