The effort of the author has been to make this small volume a compendium of useful information on farm and dairy topics. Brief discussions on subjects of importance and interest to farmers and dairymen have been introduced, and useful facts, tables, formulas, receipts, agricultural statistics, etc., are given to such an extent as the plan of the work permitted. Valuable data scattered throughout our agricultural literature, in the reports and bulletins of our experiment station, and the scientific divisions of the United States Department of A griculture, as well as in other public documents and in farm papers and standard works, have been gathered in this Handbook and arranged in such a manner as to make them easily accessible and convenient for reference purposes. The present volume is a third edition of theD airy and Agricultural Calendars previously published by the author. Much new material, both original and compiled, has been included, and special articles, tables, statistics, etc., have been verified, and brought up to date, making the book, as it is hoped, of considerable value, and securing for it as favorable reception and as enthusiastic friends as its predecessors found.
