College of Agriculture and Veterinary Science
for the
State of ,inas Gerves.


To His ilxcellency,
Dr. Arthur da Silva 7ernardes,
President of the State of Minas Geraes.
Honorable Sir:
I have thhonor to present you a communication that has
to do with the establishment of the College of Agriculture ena Veter-
inary Science Since my last communication of Aug. 10, 1921, I have
made visits almost every day to the Department of Agriculture with
the view of aiding and developing the wor!'. The architect finally
completed the cdra' ings for most of the buildings. I believe the one
to be used as a reservoir for water was not drtwn but one formerly
drawn for a similar purpose was to be substituted. There are also
two hay barns of nearly similar dimensions. It was decided that one
drawing would do for the two jarns.
During the period when these drawings were being nade, it
was impracticable for me to be away from the city to study other sim-
ilar institutions in the country except for very brief periods as it
was necessary to visit the architect's office daily while he was mak-
ing these drawings. In this connection I wish to complement the
architect, '.1r. Dario Pernault Ooelho for his uniform courtesy in con-
nection with thec works


Report of Trips of Investigation.
Fazends .I.'odelo de Criacao.
On August 31, 121, I visited the Fazenda 'orlelo de Criacao
at Pedro Leopoldo. On the day of my visit Dr. Romulo Jova nne was not






., ". ** *-2- .
present, due to the fact that the Telegraph Comnany failed to send
promptly the message which hrd been delivered to them in asmple time.
His assistant, however, met me at the Pailroad Station and took me to
the Fazenda to see the animals ond the work that was being coi*ted.
They have a goodly supply of breeding animals as well as a large tract
of excellent lend on.which to develop extensive herds.
Horses. The horses were represented by two breeds: Arabian
and English thoroughbred. The animals of both breeds were in good
condition and suitable for the work in band. (bn. photographs 1,2. 3)



























Jack. There was also one jack of good build and well !red.
(See photograph 4.)

Cattle. ?oth milk. and beef strains of cattle were present.
Probably the most interesting specimens were those of tT'e purebreds,
one bull and two heifers, of the I'riburgo breed. These are skid to be
the first purebreds of this breed in 'razil. "hey bad a number of the
lppresentatives of the l'rown Sviss, usually spoken of in publications
as the iwitz. These seem to 'e thie most inuular mill- breed for "razil.
There vlso were two bulls of the "ereford breed.
iogs. A considerable amount of ,,ork is beinp, done on the
breeding of hop,. 'They had three breeds nreent: T'Duroc-Jersey, "olnd
Uhina, Ond Iar-re Pleck. 'ome work was being clone in producing grarles
by the use of good types of the Canestrsas vs a foundation on the fe-rale
side.
Live Stock Buildings' 'robtbly the most interesting nart
of the iszenda was fhe newr bnrns thet 7re being constructed for cattle
and horses. These were beinp projected on r prnnad scale worthy of the
tyne of werk that is being underta1en.

Cow Stable. ?hip structure va "s nearinp. completion. It was
built Tn the shape of aO-uadran-le, measuring forty by fifty icters.
withinn this quadran"1e is an opon once in the center of which it is
intended to lsads an immense silo. "he oroning into the barn is
through an immense arch in one side of the 'uadrangle. At the side of
this rrch ere located milk rooms, slee-'ing -uarters, and storo-'e rooms.
The 'stlls for a large number of Patfle are located on two si.es, ard on
the third -idv are the stalls for calves. grert 00 olnce of water is
being supplied directly to the stlls. 'eprly all of tle stalls, esne-
cially tbo e for the large cattle, o.:n to-",,rd th- interior? The whole
barn has been built on a most substantial mid elaborate n-lan. Ample
ventilation is secured in all parts.

The young men of jinfis Gernes heve a right to expect that the
loaders in statecraft shall point out the way clearly, ana also supply
the educational needs for carrying out the work. If we older men fail"
in t.is mission we will fail in our life's principal opportunity. I have
pointed out certain and definite lines of improvement that can be mdcie in
the agriculture of linas. The improvement of the live stock, the








improvement of the fruit crop, and the i-rnrovement of the fari crons
are simply ,ieans to ,n end. The end in view if to ,i\1 of .-iinis -'eraes ,ore profifible, more satisfying, and norec attrnctiVe
