ALL RICHTS RESERVED. FARM, FIELD AND GARDEN, By BOAZ. » CATTLE FEEDING IN STALLS AND YARDS. During the present month a deal of atten- tion will be devoted to the feeding of cattle in stalls and yards, a large number of the animals being got ready for the Chrifctmas markets. The final issue of the feeding has been to a large extent determined ere now, for the utmost care is neceesary throughout the whole period of the life of the animal. The selection of the calf, and aIm the type of the sire and dam, all go to make or mar the whole undertaking. In these days of keen competition it is necessary to eelect cattle of a quick-feeding and early-maturing character, and if the best results are to be obtained, there must be no check in develop- ment caused by injudicious feeding and ex- posure. Every detail must be carefulh thought over, and it is impossible to wholly I make good the effects of a lhecK due to errors and neglect at an earlier stage. What has to be done now is to push on the cattle and to give them the final polishing off. In so j doing, each farmer must be guided in his method by the resources of his holding and by a careful study of market requirements, consequently no hard and fast rules can be laid down. One of the changes noticed in recent years has been to limit t'jo supply of roots, and to employ them more judiciously. The importance of a supply of pure clean water should not on any account be over- looked; while in feeding, the individual tastes and habits of the animals should be carefully studied. -+--
