The College Herd. ] I [ HIS herd consists of forty-seven animals all told, representing five dif- 1 ferent herds— Holstein, Freisians, Jerseys, Devons, Guernseys and Ayr- shires. Only the most prominent animals will here receive special mention. The Holstein Bull, Pledge ' s Empire, two years and eight months old the 10th of November, is a very promising creature ; sired by Empire 588, he by Billy Boelyn 189, and out of Empress 339. Billy Boelyn won seventeen first prizes, and sold for $10,000. Sire ' s Dam, Empress, has a record of giv- ing 19,714 pounds 14 ounces of milk in one year, a trifle over 54 pounds per day, as an average for the whole year. Dam, Pledge 1,506 H. H. B., during the past summer has given the largest yield of milk on record in the world. During July and August she gave a total of 6,105 £ pounds, an average of over 98 pounds per day. For 36 con- secutive days, from July 6 to August 10, she gave 3,601% pounds, or a trifle over 100 pounds per day. The largest yield for any one day was 110) pounds, July 31st. During this time she ran at large in a pasture where there was plenty of good feed and drinking water from a stream that ran through the lot. No additional food was given her except 16 quarts of grain per day up to July 19th ; from then on 20 quarts. Grain fed dry and mixed in the following proportions: 4-9 ground oats, 4-9 coarse middlings, 1-9 corn meal. Occasionally a little oil cake was fed with the grain. Pledge is seven years old, sired by Billy Boelyn, and out of Plenty 542. Among the Jerseys is Edithson, 8,948 A. J. C. C, six years old ; sired by Ramapo 4,679, who took the double gold medal at the New York State Fair in 1885. Dam, Lass Edith 6,290, half Alphea blood. She has a record of 17 pounds 8 ounces of butter in seven days, after second calf. Sire ' s dam, Eurotas, has a record of 22 pounds 7 ounces butter in seven days, and 778 pounds in eleven months. There is nothing to attract attention among the Devons, except, per- haps, the size of Bull Senator. He weighs just one ton. Among the Guernseys the chief attraction is Fanny 410, aged 10 years. Sire and Dam both on the Island of Guernsey. She has a record of 16) pounds butter in seven successive days, on feed from an average pasture, with two quarts of corn meal per day. She has won two silver medals, be- sides taking first and second premiums at different State and County fairs. During the past summer it was estimated that four quarts of her milk would produce one quart of cream, she having no feed except what she could get from an ordinary pasture. There is nothing worthy of special mention among the Ayrshires. (45)
