Ffermwr John Stephens: Cnydau a stoc

Mae John Stephens yn disgrifio'r cnydau a blannwyd yn 1898-9, oedd yn cynnwys ceirch, yd, barlys, swêds a 'manglen' (math o fetys a ddefnyddiwyd fel bwyd i wartheg oedd yn cael ei adnabod weithiau fel mangelworzels), a'r caeau lle cawsant eu plannu, gan ddefnyddio enwau'r caeau.

Crops
The crops in the year 1898 were exceptionally good and were as under.
Stonefield 14 loads clover
Green meadow 27 loads hay
Little meadow 4 loads hay
Watery Lane meadow 14 loads hay

Nobley plock 11 loads tied oats
Brummy acre 16 loads loose oats
Millground 14 loads barley
Pt (4 ac) of Norman's ridge 11 loads wheat
Stonefield lower part 8 loads barley

Mangels about 1 acre 27 loads (Millground)
Swedes about 20 loads acre (Small + 2a. Nor's R)
No turnips
Serch hynny, bu 1899 yn flwyddyn wael i'r stoc ac adlewyrchwyd hyn yn y prisiau y gellid eu disgwyl amdanynt yn y farchnad.
1899 was a year full of diseases . . .

Archifau Sir Powys
1899 was a year full of diseases amongst the stock. Early in the year a bullock died of cancer. Later nearly all the sheep showed signs of Oestrus Ovis or grub in the nose, but few died yet it took probably 5/- per head off all. The cattle and horse became infested with lice. Ringworm appeared amongst two herds of cattle. Warbles were thick. The extremely dry autumn necessitated dressing sheep with tar and oil as a preventive of Oestrus Ovis. The drought probably caused many sheep to get dry rot or diseased liver. A very severe frost (39°) came in Dec before were prepared for it. No turnips. Fair swedes on Nobley plock and four acres of N. Ridge. All grain of exceptionally good quality and good cast. Very few apples.

Er hynny, dywedodd yn 1901:

Summer came in earnest at last and brightened up the look of things very much. Prices were up more still and the Boer War seemed over.

"Summer came in earnest . . ."
