WHAT 1. KNOW OF FARMING.
nY noßscr, GREELEY
SHEEP AND WOOL.GIIO WING.
Ours is eminently an agricultural
country. We produce most of our food
and export much more than we import
of both Grain and meat. Of Cotton,
we grow some three millions of bales
annually, whereof we export fully two
thirds. Bat of this we reimport a por
tion in the shape of fabrics and of
thread, and yet, while we aro largely
clothed in woolens, ar.d extensive sec
tions of our country are admirably
adapted to the rearing of Sheep and
the production of Wool, wo not only
import a considerable share of the
Woolens in which we aro clad, but we
also import a considerable proportion
of the Wool wherefrom wo manufacture
the Woolens fabricated on our owu
soil. .In other words: while we are a
nation of farmers and herdsmen, wo
fail to grow so much Wool as is need
ed to shield us against the caprices and
inclemencies of our diverse but mor
ally fitful climates.
There is a seeming excuse for this in
the fact that extensive regions in South
America and Australia aro devoted to
Sheep-growing where animals are
.'neittler.:housed'nor herded, and where
they are exclusively fed, at all seasons,
on those native grasses which are the
spontaneous products of the soil. I
Pies - time Wool is in those regions pro
duced cheaper than it can, permanent : -
ly be on any considerable area of our
own soilraiad. yet 1.-- believe that the
United Statee should, and profitably
might, grow as much wool as is need.
ed for their own large annual consump
tion. Hero aro my reasons :
I. When the predominant interest of
British manufactures constrained the
entire repeal of the duties on imported
wool, whereby Sheep—growing had
previously been protected, the farmers
`apprehended that they must abandon
that department of their industry; but
the event proved this calculation a
mistake. They grow more Sheep and
at better profit to-day than they did
when their wool brought a higher
price under. tho influence of protective
duties, because the largely increased
price of their Mutton more than makes
up.to them their loss by the reduced
• prices of their wool. So while I do not
expect that Ainerican wool will ever
again command such high prices as it
has dono at some periods in the past, I
am confidentl,that the general apprecia
tion in the prices of Meat, which has
occurred within the last ten or fifteen
years, and which seems likely to be
enduring, will render Sheep growing
more profitable in the future than it
has been in the past. At all events,
while our farmers are generally oblig
ed to sell their Grain and Meat at
prices somewhat below the range of
the British markets, it is hardly con
ceivable that they should not afford to
wool, for which they receive
higher average prices than the British
,farmers do, who feed their Sheep on
the produce of lands worth from 8300
to $5OO (gold) per acre. _
11. Interest being relatively high in
this country and capital. with most
farmers deficient, it is"a serious objec
tionfoleattle-grOwing that the farmer
must wait three or four years before
receiving a return of his outlay. If he
begins 'poor; with but'a few cows and
a team, he naturally wants to rear
and keep all his calves for several
years in order to adequately stock his
- farm, so that little or no income is in
the meantime realized from his herd;
whereas,a flock of Sheep yields a fleece
per head each year, though not even a
lamb is sold, while its increase in num
bers is far more rapid than that of a
herd of cattle.
111. Almost every farmer, at least
in the old States, finds some part of
his land infested with bushes and bri•
ars, which seem to flourish by cutting,
Übe finds time to cut them, and which
the ruggedness of his soil precludes his
exterminating by the plow. In every
.sneh ease, Sheep aro his riaiuraP allies
—his unpaid police—his vigilant and
thorough-going assistants. Give them
an even start in Spring with the bush
es and briars; let their number be
sufficient; and they are very sure - to
come out ahead in the Pail.
IV. Our farmers in the average aro
too much confined in Summer and Au•
tumn to salt meal, and especially to
pork. However excellent in qualty
these may be, their exclusive use is
neither healthful nor palatable. With
a good flock of Sheep, the most seclud
ed farmer may have fresh meat every
week in haying and harvest-time if ho
chooses, and he will find this better
for his family, and more satisfactory
to his workmen, than a diet wherefrom
fresh - meat is excluded.
V. Now, I . do not insist that every
farmer should grow Sheep; for I know
that many aro so situated that they
cannot. In stony regions, where
walls are very generally relied on for
fences, I am aware that Sheep aro
with difficulty kept within bounds; and
'this is 'a serious objection: In the
neighborhood of cities and large villa-
gVs; where fresh meat may bo bought
from day to, day, ono valid reason for
'keeping them has no application; yet
.1 hold that twico as many of our farm
ers as now have flocks ought to have
them, and would thereby increase
their profits as well as the comfort of
The most serious obstacle to Sheep
husbandry in this country is the abun
dance and depredations of dogs.—
Farmers by tens of thousands have
sold off, or killed off, their flocks, main
ly because they could not otherwise
protect themselves against their fro
quent decimation by prowling curs,
which were not worth the powder ro
quired to shoot them. It seems to me
that a farmer thus despoiled is perfect
ly justifiable in placing poisoned food
where these cut-tin-oats will be apt to
find it while making their next raid on
his Sheep. I :should have no scruple
in so doing, provided I could gum d ef
fectually against the poisoning of any
other than the culprits.
In a well-settled, thrifty, region,
where ample barns aro provided, I
judge that the losses of sheep by dogs
may be reduced to a minimum by
proper precautions. Elsewhere than
in wild, new frontier settlements,evory
flock of sheep should have a place of
refuge beneath the hay-floor of a good
barn, and be trained to spend every
night there, as well to seek this shelter
against every pelting storm. Even if
sent some distance to pasture, an un
barred lane should connect such pas
ture with their fold; and they should
bo driven home for a few nights, if nec
essary, until they had acquired the
habit of coming home at nightfall; and
I am assured that sheep thus lodged
will very rarely be attacked by dogs
As yet, our farmers have not goner
ally realized that enhancement of the
value of mutton, whereby their British
rivals have profited so largely. Their
fathers began to breed sheep when a
fleece sold for much more than a car
case, and when fineness and abundance
of wool were the main consideration.
But such is no longer the fact, at least
in the Eastern and Middle States
To-day, large and long-wooled sheep
of the Cotswold and similar breeds aro
grown with far greater profit in this
section than the fine-wooled Merino
and Saxony, except where choice spec
imens of the latter can he sold at high
prices for removal to Texas and the
Far West. The growing of these
highpriced animals must necessarily
be confined to few hands. The aver
age farmer cannot expect to sell bucks
at $l,OOO, and even at $5,000, as some
have been sold, or at least reported.—
He must Calculate that his sheep aro
to be sold when sold at all, at
prices ranging from ton dollars down
to five dollars, if not lower, so that
mechanics and Merchants may buy
and eat them without absolute ruin;
and he must realize that 100 pounds of
mutton at 10 cents, N . vith 6 pounds of
wool at 30 cents, amount to more than
GO pounds of mutton at 8 cents, and 10
pounds of wool at GO eon's. Farmers
who grow sheep for mutton in this
vicinity, and manage to have lambs of
good size for sale in June or July, as
sure me that their profit on these is
greater than on almost anything else
their farms will produce; and they say
what they know.
The satisfactory experience of this
class may be repeated today in the
neighborhood of any considerable city
in the Union. Shccp•growing is no ex
periment; it is an assured and gratify
ing success with all who understand and
are fitly placed for its prosecution.—
Wool may never again bo so high RA
wo have known it,sinco the Far West
and Texas can grow it very cheaply,
while its transportation costs less than
five per cent. of its value, where that
of Grain would be 75 per cent.; but
mutton is a wholesome• and generally
acceptable meat, whereof the use and
popularity aro daily increasing; so
that its market value will doubtless he
greater in the future than it has been
in the past. I would gladly incite the
farmers of our country to comprehend
this fact, and act so as to profit by
