AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION WITHIN REACH OF
EVERY ENERGETIC YOUNG MAN WHO WISHES
TO EXCEL IN GENERAL AGRICULTURE.
3. A. X003M, in Charge of Short Course.
By a wise provision of our legislature in 1189 the Farmers' Institute
Bulletins now reach every district school in the state, and ore not only
read
by the young farmers attending district school, but are drawn from the libra-
ries and read by those at home under the same rules and regulations as other
books of the libraries.
With this distribution of eight thousand copies and a general distribution
of 52,000 copies by Superintendent McKerrow at Farmers' Institutes, Bul-
letin No. 11 will reach the homes and firesides of more people than any pre-
vious issue, consequently a chapter to young farmers seems very essentiaL
There is no longer any doubt as to the advisability of the farmer being
trained in the vocation he follow in Order to succeed, as he has as deep
and
intricate subjects to fathom on the farm as the doctor, lawyer, or manuhe-
turer, consequently he should have the same opportunities afforded him to
secure this proper training.
Courses in the College of Agriculture
The University of Wisconsin has made ample provisions for agricultural in-
struction in the College of Agriculture, which now gives the following course.
to young farmers: The Graduate Course, the Long Course, the Short
Course and the Factory Course in Butter and Chees Making
Graduate Course
The Graduate Course Is for graduates from our own and other universities
who wish to further their education by original investigation and profes-
stonal training; rare opportunities are afforded such students in the 11
Iment Station and scientific laboratories
