Removal of Garlic Flavor From Milk and Cream

Description: "It is a well-known fact that when cows eat wild onion or garlic within four hours before milking there is imparted to their milk a very disagreeable flavor and odor. This flavor is not only unpleasant but it lowers the commercial value of the milk. Any method, therefore, which will remove this flavor and odor should be of interest to dairymen." -- title page

A New System of Cotton Culture and Its Application

Description: "The way to secure an early short-season crop of cotton is to thin the plants later and leave them closer together in the rows than is now customary. Neither of these policies is advisable if used alone, but they give a real advantage when properly combined. Keeping the plants closer together during the early stages of growth restricts the formation of vegetative branches and induces an earlier development of fruiting branches. The new system is based on the principle of controlling the formation of the branches." -- title page

Bird Houses and How to Build Them

Description: "A few years ago only four species were commonly regarded as house birds -- the house wren, the bluebird, the tree swallow, and the martin. Since the movement to protect birds and make neighbors of them began, however, their natures and needs have become better understood, and it is now known that many other species will avail themselves of houses constructed for them by their human friends. The practice of erecting bird houses in this country, while now nation-wide, is not so common and uniformly distributed as it should be, and more extended provisions of this nature can not fail to result in a largely increased number of house birds." -- p. 2

Collection and Preservation of Plant Material for Use in the Study of Agriculture

Natural and Artificial Brooding of Chickens

Description: "Brooding with hens is the simplest and easiest way to raise a few chickens and is the method which issued almost exclusively on the average farm. Artificial brooders are necessary where winter or very early chickens are raised, where only Leghorns or other nonsetting breeds of poultry are kept, or where large numbers of chickens are raised commercially. Successful natural rearing of chickens requires convenient facilities, regular attention, and often tries one's patience, while artificial methods require a larger investment, close attention, and more care, but are more commonly used where large numbers of chickens are raised." -- title page
