Keep the Stable Floors Clean.
We knew divers people who take some
pride in their horses and eaitle, but who are
inveterate slovens in their stables. Ther ,
racks or mappers are made so that half the hay
tliev pive their stork is wasted and drawn niuW
their feet. Tliey dou't clean tlieir stables once
n week, or a fortn : pht. We have, indeed
Been stables where valuable animals were kept,
not cleaned out for an entire Winter, and the
heels of the poor beasts stood a foot higher
than their fore feet in the latter part of the
season. We once hired a barn—a nice, new
ly built baru, too—of a man for the Winter ;
and went to put our stock into it, found that
the horse stable sill was more than two feet
above the ground, and the poor beasts had to
leap that high to get into it, and fall down or
make a leap every time they went out of it ;
and also, that full eighteen inches of solid
horse dung had to be thrown ont, taking a
man half a day to do it before we could use it,
besides repairing the entrance by a bridge that
tliey could walk iu and out upon. We scold
ed the owner sonndly for his laziness—it was
nothing else—and had only answered that " lie 1
hadn't time to clean it, and didn't see what j
hurt it did the horses !" And yet, when we s
came to settle with him in the Spring, lie want- 1
ed us to pay some dollars extra because we j
nsed a part of his barn floor to mix onr cut j
feed upon, on the plea that in wetting onr feed j
for mixing, it rotted his floor during the H "in
fer ! llis half a dozen loads of horse dung
seething, and fermenting through n long hot j
Summer, didn't rot the stable floor ! Oh, no.
Just so some folks are constituted.
A stable where stock is kept, should be |
cleaned ont once a day, at least, and twice is j
none too much. In all our stable practice we I
clean the stables twice a duy, and shake tip the ;
bedding, let the weather be as it will. On the
floors of our calf and sheep stables we scatter
dry litter. When that gets thoroughly soiled
and saturated, wo clean it out and supply its
place fresh. The ammonia arising from the
stale of stock ill the stables becomes, in a
short time, very offensive to theni, as it is to
ourselves. It penetrates their lungs and gives
thorn disease. Its pungency affects their eyes,
making them sore and irritable, and is a posi
tive injury, to say nothing about tfie sloven
ness of 1 aving stables une'ea l. Cleanliners,
indeed, is as necessary to beast as to man.
No creature can thrive when fouled and be
smeared with ordure.
When horses (not mares) and oxen stand
regularly, holes should be bored through the
floor to let their stales run through on to muck
below, or into a trench by which it may pass
off and be saved. Otherwise, it remains under
them to make ihem uncomfortable when they
lie down, unless they have bedding enough to
fully absorb it, which is not always conven
ient. Onr own plan of stable flooring is to
raise that part on which the animals stand
two inches—the thickness of the plank—above
the passage behind, and sloping from the foot
of the manger hack, to giu* a fall of one to
two inches in the distance of six or seven feet
of floor on which they stand, to admit the stale
to pass off readily, as well as to let the drop
pings on to the lower level behiud tbera.
WINTERING CALVES. —CaIves should hare
loose stables, or stalls, to run in during the
Winter, with a little yard or paddock for ex
ercise out of doors in fair weather, nnd plenty
of air always. Good soft hay, a few oafs, say
a pint a day for each, or an equal quantity of
corn, oats, or barley meal, and in tuild weath
er a quart of sliced roots is their best food.
In very cold weather roots do calves—such is
our experience —more hurt than pood. They
are cold and watery, arid scour them. In
mild weather, roots supply the place of green
food, and we consider tlieiu good for that only,
in our Northern climate.
If calves get lousy, rub a little soft prcasp,
mixed with a sprinkling of iScotch snuff, on
the affected parts, thoroughly to the skin, and
the lice will leave at once. If you have not
the snuff, grease alone will do. This is effec
tual, and the only remedy we have applied for
years. Tobacco water we do not like It of
ten sickens the calves, and is not so certain a
care as the grease. Keep the calves warm,
dry and clean, and they will come oat iu the
Spring as bright as larks.
Wintering Lambs. — The same food and
treatment applied to calves will -u coed equal
ly with lamiis. If tliey get ticks upon them,
Scotch snuff distributed along the back, by
opening the wool and rubbing it well in, will
destroy the ticks. Do not crowd too many
lambs together, and separate the strong from
the weak. All animals are selfish, and have
no sympathy for their inferiors. The larger,
of whatever kind, over-run the smaller, drive
them frtm their food, and starve them out al
Old, or weakly sheep, may be wintered iu
the same stables or sheds with lambs ; for, if
the old sheep be larger and stronger, the
lambs are sprver, and can do better dodge
abont them for their food. They all require
fresh air, and plenty of it. Dry cold never
hurts a sheep, but rains iu Winter are frequent
ly injurious, particularly if of opened wnolcd
varieties, as they souk to the skin and give
them severe colds. A severe snow storm, if
dry, is less hurtful than a warm rain, and a
sleet worse than both together.
Valceof Clovkr Hay.— 11. Capko.v, of
INinois, who baa been largely concerned in
the dairy business, (having sold $(5,1)00 worth
of milk in a single year,) informs us that he
made accurate experiments to test the eoni
|ratiye value of timothy and clover hay.—
These experiments extended through a period
of two years, were accompanied with accurate
weighing and measuring, and the food was
changed from timothy to clover, and rice, versa,
once a month, and results were that the clover
hay uniformly yielded ten per cent, more milk
than the timothy. It will be observed that
this was not a single expeirtnent, but a series
of experiments extending for a long period.—
It is also proper to state that the clover was
