Excerpt from Principles and Practice of Poultry Culture
Need of instruction. The practice Of poultry culture Is an art or a craft or a combination of art and craft according to the purpose for which it is pursued and the taste and Skill of those engaged In it. A workman may attain great proficiency in many operations merely through skill in imitation. Such a workman, however, must work always after a model or under the direction Of one familiar with all phases of his art or craft and thoroughly under standing its principles. In any enterprise engaging large numbers of people, only a small proportion Of these need be qualified to oversee and direct the work; but as the number of persons engaged diminishes, the proportion understanding the processes involved and their relations must increase, until, in such occupa tions as farming and housekeeping, each husbandman and house wife must be able to do and to direct the doing of a variety of operations, adapting and adjusting all to the general result sought.
The relation of this fact to agricultural and technical education has not been sufficiently emphasized. Considering it here only in its application to poultry culture, it is plain that a general knowl edge of the subject is as necessary and as useful to one whose plans contemplate perhaps the maintenance of a flock Of a few hundred fowls on the farm as to one who intends to undertake operations on a large scale. Both require the same preparation, as far as preparation can be given by book and class instruction.
