Description: "The investigation of which this bulletin is in part a record has been carried on with a twofold purpose in view. The first object is to furnish information to the farmer which will enable him to exercise an intelligent judgment as to the difficulties involved in the manufacture of wire fencing which shall be low in price and at the same time resistant to rust and corrosion. The second object has been to determine, with the cooperation of progressive manufacturers and metallurgists, the causes which underlie the much too rapid corrosion of modern steel wire, and, if possible, to suggest improvements in methods of manufacture by means of which the difficulties may be at least partially, if not wholly, overcome." -- p. 5

The Guinea Fowl and Its Use as Food

Description: "In the United States there is a growing market for guinea fowl as table birds, and therefore it has seemed desirable to summarize the available data regarding them. At some of the American experiment stations studies have been made of the composition of the flesh and eggs of this class of poultry, but so far as can be learned no tests have been made of their food requirements, the comparative value of different rations, or the best systems of care and management. Standard poultry books and files of poultry journals contain some references to guinea fowl and methods of feeding and caring for them, but the information thus available is meager and widely scattered. In the present bulletin such data have been summarized, as well as information secured by correspondence and in other ways. The discussions of the preparation of guinea fowl and guinea eggs for the table, and the character and quality of the cooked products are in considerable part based on experiments especially undertaken for this bulletin by teachers of domestic science and others." -- p. 3
