Old Time Farm Magazines

The following are excerpts culled from old time farm magazines "The Farm Journal" and "Successful Farming," dated 1902, 1907, and 1908.

BUTCHERING RACK: To hold veal calves while butchering I made a rack as shown by taking some 2x4 pieces to make the crosses and some 4 inch fencing for the side rails. The rack is four feet long, has a rope with snap to pass over calf just in front of hind legs and fasten. Knock calf in head, place on rack and let head hang down over dish to catch the blood. Such a device can be used for tagging sheep.—Edgar H. Swart, N. Y.
