Bainbridge, - Georgia,
For Georgiy Livestock
Industry Worth $100,000,000 Requires
ANDREW M. SOULE, President Geor-
gia State College Of Agriculture
The aggregate of our live stock in
terests is not generally appreciated for
the animals now owned on Georgia
fajms are easily worth $100,000,000.
In 1910 the state was credited in the
federal census with owning about $78,-
000,000 worth of live stock. Within a
period of six years, therefore, there
has been an increase in the value of
live stock of approximately $22,000,000,
and this in the face of the fact that
the shipment of a very considerable
number of mules to Europe on ac
count of the war conditions prevailing
there has tended to reduce not only
the number but the value of our ani
mals as well. At the present time
there are only about fifty licensed vet
erinarians practicing in the state of
Georgia. Most of these live in towns
and cities, and there are many farmers
in the state who are more than one
hundred miles from a competent vet
erinarian; and even if they could se
cure his services in time, it would be
at an almost prohibitive cost. It may
thus he said with propriety that farm
ers living out in the open country
would lind it extremely difficult to se
cure the aid of a competent veterina
rian, and that this condition is not
likely to he remedied until provision is
made for the training of a very consid
erable number of men in the underly
ing principles of veterinary medicine.
That some provision for instruction
of this character should he made is
evidenced by the very considerable
number of applications received from
young men who desire to study veter
inary medicine. In view of this fact,
the trustees of the Georgia State Col
lege of Agriculture have endeavored
to meet the situation by authorizing
the establishment of the first two
years of a degree course in veterinary
medicine. This will be open to any
young man in Georgia seventeen years
of age and who is able to present four
teen units £pr entrance. It is the earn
est hope of the trustees that at the
end of two years through the aid of
the state they may be able to add
the junior work of training veterina
rians within the state who are ac
quainted with local conditions, in sym
pathy with the people living in the
open country, and who naturally be
lieve in Georgia and its future possi
bilities along live stock production.
Buying Farm Machinery
L. C. HART, Professor Of Agr. Engi
neering, Ga. State College Of Agr.
Many farmers of Georgia will never
be able to participate in the benefits
of some lines of farm machinery until
such machines have been purchased
co-operatively. For one farmer to buy
all of them would tie up too much cap
ital. It would not pay. But for sev
eral farmers to buy and get use of
such machinery, good profits will fol
The purchase of threshing machin
ery, farm tractors, harvesting ma
chines, silo fillers, corn shredders,
etc., may be instanced. Special ef
fort Is to be made by Agricultural En
gineering department ot the College
to get farmers in communities to pur
chase farm machinery In this way.
Selecting A Location
For An Orchard
J. W. FIROR, Field Aflt. Horticulture,
Ga. State College Of Agriculture
Many people are preparing to plant
peach and apple orchards. At plant
ing time, the location of the orchard
is not always given the consideration
that it merits. At marketing time lo
cation is very, very important. How
well is the orchard located with refer
ence to railroad facilities? How far
from the loading station? What sort
of roads must he used to haul over?
These are the questions the orehard-
ists should answer before planting.
A large peach grower who was only
two miles from the loading station,
found, during a rainy season, that the
job of hauling the peaches from Ms
packing shed to the cars was tremen
dous. After the first few loads, the
roads became very badly cut up, later
they became almost impassable. There
are very few places where conditions
make it advisable to plant a peach
orchard over three miles from the
loading point. Apple orchards are
suited to more distant planting, but
usually four miles is the limit.
As long as there is an abundance
of suitable land near the railroads,
use it. The difference in price is very
seldom sufficient to Justify the differ
ence in cost of hauling. Yet, the ac
tual cost of hauling does not tell the
whole tale. Cars move away from
the depot according to freight sched
ules and also come into the depot in
the same way. The orchard closest
has an advantage in getting his fruit
moved quickly, and this is of spe
cial importance with peaches.
