. Biggle cow book; old time and modern cow-lore rectified, concentrated and recorded for the benefit of man. Cows. 92 BIGGLE COW BOOK. A iooo-pound steer requires an average of eleven pounds of feed to make one pound of gain. A juicy, tender young beef should be one of the good things a grazing farm produces for family use every fall. November and December are good months for slaughtering, as the meat can be kept fresh nearly all winter. Neighborhood beef clubs are in favor in some places. These clubs are conducted on various plans. The idea is co-operative, and the details are arranged to suit the members. A score of families, more or less, join together and agree that a beef shall be killed and divided every week. This would mean twenty pounds of fresh good ones. meat to each family from a beef dressing 400 pounds. Each member in turn furnishes the animal. It is found best to have the slaughtering always done in the same place.. DRIED BEEF. A cold animal may shiver off many pounds of flesh. Give the fattening steer a teaspoonful of salt daily. Beef the rogue cows. Veal the male calves or beef them. Don't monkey them. To grow animals, feed one thing ; to fatten them another. Don't get the steers to kicking. They can be coaxed better than whipped out of it. The most profit in the steer is in the first year's growth. The next year has less, and so on. Don't try to make the corn in the steer's belly take the place of shelter..
