How Live Stock Is Handled in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky

Description: "The object of this bulletin is to show how livestock is handled and fits into the farm organization in the bluegrass region of Kentucky. The average successful farm of any long-established type will have various kinds of livestock distributed in about the proportion that owners or operators in general believe will pay best. Thus, a gradual process of selection is going on constantly in all agricultural regions, and it should be to the farmer's interest to know the best practice in his community and to have explained the economic advantages that have been secured by such practice. In this bulletin an effort has been made to bring out the fundamental practices that make for success with livestock in central Kentucky as determined by the practices of the more successful livestock farmers of that region." -- p. 3

Producing Family and Farm Supplies on the Cotton Farm

Because of the long growing season, and the short, mild winters of the Cotton Belt, garden vegetables may be grown there in abundance throughout the year with little labor and at trifling expense. Necessary livestock products and feeds for farm animals can be produced on the farm much more cheaply than they can be bought. This bulletin suggests ways in which southern farmers may make the most of opportunities for the home production of commodities that otherwise would necessitate cash outlay." -- p. 2
