Another says, " I sow from the middle of August to the middle of September.

Σελίδα 47 - This is indispensable in the fattening ox, but a largeness and drooping of the belly is excusable in the cow. It leaves room for the udder, and if it is also accompanied by swelling milk-veins, it generally indicates her value in the dairy.
