An Economic Study of Acacias. By Charles Howard
Pp. 38, pls. 11. Contribution from the Forest Service.
ment Bulletin 9.) Price, 10 cents.
Dec. 5, 1913.
Attention is called to the economic importance of the leading acacias with the idea of bringing about
more general planting, as many species have proved themselves to be entirely at home over large areas,
and in fact have become naturalized, in California. Warning is given, however,that fuller and extended
work on the growth and products of acacias, based on American-grown trees, is necessary before exten-
sive commercial operations are undertaken, as the rates of growth and the yields of various species
on different soils, especially under plantation conditions, have not been definitely determined.

A popular article of interest to farmers everywhere, treating of the raising of sheep on farms (not
the western ranges), showing how to establish a flock, size of flock, how to care for it, the feed and its
production, shearing and care of the wool, cost of maintenance per head, and value of sheep as soil
Improvers and weed destroyers. Thousands of farms which now raise no sheep and many others
where the size of the flock should be increased would show an added profit to the farmer if sheep raising
was made a prominent factor in their management. Mutton is the logical solution of the high cost of
