ANNUAL REPORT

OF THE

Ohio State Board of Agriculture

For the Year 1904.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE,

COLUMBUS, MARCH 10, 1905.

To the Honorable the General Assembly of Ohio:

GENTLEMEN :-The Ohio State Board of Agriculture has the honor to submit herewith its fifty-ninth annual report, agreeably to the provisions of sections 3693 and 3694 of the Revised Statutes.

The report contains the transactions of the Board for the year; crop and stock reports issued during the year; the agricultural statistics, as gathered by township assessors; comparative tables of the important farm products; proceedings of the State Farmers' Institute and annual meeting of the Board; report of inspection and analyses of commercial fertilizers; report of the inspection and analyses of samples of commercial feed stuffs; report of the County Farmers' Institutes held in the State and conducted under the direction of the Board; report of Nursery and Orchard Inspection; and the report of the Board of Live Stock Commissioners.

The report shows the work of the Board and the Department of Agriculture during the year 1904, as transacted through its several divisions.

The State Fair held in 1904, agreeably to the provisions of section 3693, Revised Statutes, was the most successful, in all respects, ever held in the State. The educational advantages of these annual State Fairs can scarcely be over-estimated.

The Board appreciates the liberal appropriations made by the Seventy-sixth General Assembly for the construction of sanitary sewers and new exhibition buildings. A generous appropriation by the Seventyseventh General Assembly will enable the Board to complete the construction of such suitable buildings as should be elected upon the State Fair grounds, and when fully completed, according to plans now contemplated, Ohio will have an equipment for State Fair purposes second to no State in the Union.

The officers and members of the Board, and each and every division of the Ohio Department of Agriculture, are exerting themselves, to the extent of their ability, in performing the many duties required of them by the several acts of the General Assembly of Ohio.

Respectfully,
THE OHIO STATE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE,

By W. W. MILLER, Secretary.
