REPORT

OF TIIE

OHIO STATE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE,

FOR THE YEAR 1878.

In accordance with the law creating the Ohio State Board of Agricul'ture, I herewith submit to the General Assembly of Ohio the thirty-third annual report of the Board, embracing, as required by the law, abstracts of the proceedings of the several county agricultural societies, and such other matter as has been deemed interesting and useful.

The compilation of matter for this report, though being for the year 1878, was not begun until after the meeting of the annual agricultural convention, January 7, 1879. This, however, is no deviation from the rule of former years. The matter could not be sooner prepared, from the fact that the several county societies cannot make their reports until the close of the year, and are not required to deliver the reports to the President of the Ohio State Board of Agriculture until at the time of the annual agricultural convention in each year. After the receiving of these reports it requires from two to three months' time in making tables of abstracts, corrections, etc. Then we are unable to get the statistics of crops for any one year until July of the following year, and it requiring about three months to print and bind the twenty thousand copies of the report, renders it next to impossible to have the report ready for distribution until the fall of the year.

The present report, besides the proceedings of the Board, reports from county societies, statistics of live stock, crops, etc., and the proceedings of the State Horticultural Society, contains articles and translations from several of our well-known agricultural writers. To such as are interested in the agricultural prosperity of the State they will prove interesting and valuable.

The reports from the several county agricultural societies indicate
