Pagina xxviii - Thirty Sovereigns, or a Piece of Plate of that value, will be given to the Exhibitor, at the Meeting at Derby, of the best 14 bushels of Red Wheat, of the harvest of 1842, and grown by himself.
Pagina 53 - Chemistry, Meteorology, and the Function of Digestion, considered with reference to Natural Theology.
Pagina 53 - AND COLLATERAL INFORMATION IN THE ARTS, MANUFACTURES, PROFESSIONS, AND TRADES, INCLUDING MEDICINE, PHARMACY, AND DOMESTIC ECONOMY ; designed as a General Book of Reference for the Manufacturer, Tradesman, Amateur, and Heads of Families.
Pagina 70 - A friend of mine has lately adopted a plan, which under the same circumstances I should strongly recommend ; it is that of giving a small quantity of oil-cake to animals grazing, for the sake of improving an ordinary pasture, and its effects are astonishing. The pastures I allude to are small, and one or two bullocks more than they are calculated to carry are put into each ; the lot are then allowed...
Pagina 144 - ... among the soft chaff of the young ear. We are anxious that the present cold weather should continue for another ten days, to prevent the eggs from hatching until the wheat be sufficiently hardened, and beyond the state * Trans.

It seems more reasonable to suppose that long practical experience has taught the farmer the more prudent course of a liberal supply of seed.
Pagina 71 - November the food must be changed to swedes, cake, &c.; the quantities of each must vary according to circumstances: the following I consider a good allowance where swedes are not scarce ; if they are, more oil-cake must be given instead of a part of them; or, if very plentiful, they may be allowed even more. The morning's bait...
Pagina 356 - From a long experience and close attention to the subject for more than 20 years, my mind seems more disposed to favour breeding in and in, rather than changing from one flock to another. I do not recommend that animals closely allied should be put together generally, yet I have known a very good sheep, for instance, produced by putting the son of a ram called A to a daughter of A, in cases where their points would suit each other, and I should never hesitate to do so.
