Chapter 6: Life in the Cotton Kingdom 6?9 Farm Journal Reports on the Care and Feeding of Slaves, 1836 Slaves were seen as valuable property and their care and maintenance was of no less importance to slave owners than the management of their livestock or crops. Unfortunately, the slaves were frequently seen as having little more value than livestock, and were certainly treated as property, to be managed for best profitability. Articles in farm journals on how best to manage and exploit slaves were numerous, even in such relatively prestigious tomes as The Farmer?s Register. Particularly noteworthy articles on slave management were reproduced in several different issues, such as this letter to The Southern Agri- culturist which was reprinted in The Farmer?s Register.
