9781331649595: Sheep Husbandry in the South: Comprising a Treatise on the Acclimation of Sheep in the Southern States, and an Account of the Different Breeds; Also, ... Management, and of the Treatment of Diseases

Excerpt from Sheep Husbandry in the South: Comprising a Treatise on the Acclimation of Sheep in the Southern States, and an Account of the Different Breeds; Also, a Complete Manual of Breeding, Summer and Winter Management, and of the Treatment of Diseases

So full and complete is the exposition of the subject as discussed in the following pages, and so clearly are the scope of the work and the circumstances which prevailed with its accomplished author, to pass it through our hands to the public, explained in his own "Introduction," that only in compliance with a common custom in bookmaking, might any thing have been deemed necessary in the way of preface; were it not to acquit ourselves of the obligation to tender thus publicly to Col. Randall, not our own thanks merely, but those of the agricultural community, for the great benefit which must ensue to it, in the proportion that this instructive contribution to the stock of our agricultural knowledge and literature may command the attention to which it is, on every account, so well entitled.

An agricultural correspondence, reaching far back, and spreading widely over the Southern States, to which has been more recently added considerable extent of personal observation, had with us, already established the conviction, that in no other part of our country, perhaps, does there exist a resource at once so fruitful, and so little availed of, as that which is possessed in that region, for the prosecution of this - one of the most interesting and important branches of Husbandry that any country can enjoy.

But while it has been easy to perceive this defect so apparent in their agricultural economy, amounting in the aggregate to a national loss of no inconsiderable magnitude; it was not so easy to expose, as Col. Randall has done, the fallacy of the difficulties that were supposed to stand in the way, or to indicate how the real impediments which do exist may be overcome, or materially mitigated.

Something of these imaginary difficulties, for successful Sheep Husbandry, may, as we believe, be assumed to have their origin in the prejudices engendered in the minds of Southern agriculturists, by the sweeping condemnation of it to be found in the celebrated and deservedly popular essays of Arator, by Col.

Product Description:

Excerpt from Sheep Husbandry in the South: Comprising a Treatise on the Acclimation of Sheep in the Southern States, and an Account of the Different Breeds; Also, a Complete Manual of Breeding, Summer and Winter Management, and of the Treatment of Diseases

Unfortunately for the agricultural interest of our country partien larly, the desire to cramp the manufactures of the colonies, here so candidly avowed as the settled policy of England, not only survived the Revolution, but has been so well fostered by our own subserviency to it, as to render our independence, in respect of this and other no less important industrial pursuits, rather nominal and fictitious than substantial and true; nevertheless, with the odds of pauper labor and inlmense capital against us, thanks to the ingenuity and enterprise of our people, we need not despair of final success with any thing like fair consideration on the part of our own government. For this opinion we need have no better authority than that of samuel lawrence, the enlightened and liberal proprietor of the Middlesex Mills, at Lowell, who says, the business of manufacturing wool in this coun try is on a better basis than ever before, inasmuch as the character, skill and capital engaged in it are such as to defy foreign competi tion. Occasional revulsions, such as the present, iwill occur from causes abroad over which we have no control, but let not the wool grower relax in the care of his flock, for the same far-seeing manu facturer has declared that he could point to articles of wool now im ported, that will require thirty millions of pounds of medium and fine quality to supply the demand.
