He says that all good dairymen devote their attention to raising feed for their stock, and raise oats and vetch for hay, which is stored in two barns, one holding forty tons, the other twenty tons. Corn is the most important crop that is raised on the Sturtevant farm. The heifers from their best cows are kept and raised on the Purina method of feeding, or feeding milk to the calf sixty days, gradually increasing the amount of grain mixture.

As twilight was falling and the air began to get cool, the writer took leave of his host bidding him goodbye after a most pleasant visit.
