Description

Excerpt from Twenty-Fifth Annual Report of the Department of Labor and Printing of the State of North Carolina, 1911 From a general survey of the farming industry the conditions would indicate that farmers are devoting much more forethought to their work than ever before. Seed selection, improved methods of cultivation and fertilization are coming into their proper share of study and investigation, with the result that the amount of crops from a given area are larger than formerly. Along the same line, though not to quite the same extent, attention is being paid to the improve ment of animals and stock for the farm. While it may be said that farm stock has improved as much as methods of cultivation, it is believed that the improvements in stock and animals has been made with a View of improvement alone, rather than from a study of needs and appropriateness. It would seem, from observation of this phase, that there is yet doubt about what particular breed of animal is best suited to the needs of the farmers in North Carolina. This applies especially to horses, cattle, and hogs. Sheep and goats are not raised extensively, though some attention is being paid the former. Poultry raising is, in nearly all cases, a side line, so to speak, though there would seem to be excellent opportunity for the development of this industry on a commercial scale. The improved breeds of poultry are mostly in the hands of fanciers, who breed for show purposes, and at such cost as to make their sale at market prices not profitable. The principal proportion of poultry finding its way to the markets is of the nondescript variety, and even of this there is scarcely enough to supply the demand. This condition holds, it appears, throughout the year. Figures compiled from answers to questions by farmers throughout the State are as follows.
