Poultry Management

Poultry Management

Date: 1907
Creator: Bell, George A. (George Arthur), b. 1879
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 bulletin has been prepared from the practical standpoint, and technicalities have been avoided as much as possible. In all respects the effort has been made to bring the discussion of methods and appliances down to date, including such subjects as dry feeding, curtain-front houses, colony houses, etc.... 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 ...

Drainage of Irrigated Lands

Drainage of Irrigated Lands

Date: 1909
Creator: Brown, Charles F.
Description: Report discussing "the drainage of irrigated lands which have been seriously injured or rendered wholly unproductive by the seepage of irrigation water or by the rise of alkali, or by both combined.... This report not only describes the condition of the land, the details of its draining, and the results which were obtained in particular cases, but gives carefully drawn deductions from the experiments, together with directions for draining lands which have become too wet or too alkaline under the ordinary methods of irrigation for profitable cultivation. 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
