Description

The Animal husbandry is the sure foundation of profitable, permanent agriculture. Where many animals are kept and their manure properly cared for and returned to the land, the soil becomes richer and crop-production steadily increases. And the farmer grows rich with his land. In the following pages you will find much valuable information regarding the proper care--in health and sickness--of horses, cattle, swine, sheep and poultry. While the automobile and the tractor are now doing much of the work formerly done by horses, the 'horseless era' is still far off. A good horse will always be worth good money, will always be a desirable and profitable member of the farm family. But the undersized no-breed specimen will be even less valuable in the future than in the past.
