Tho fodder pulling season of South
Carolina ts near at hand. This is a
farm practice which has been a
costly one to tho farmers of this
State for many generations, but some
of the more progressive Individuals
of our various communities are be
ginning to appreciate the drawbacks
of till expensive opera; hm, and aro
using better rough leeds in its stead.
The chief arguments made by most
farmers for lin- continuance of this
practice is 'nat fodder comos In at a
time ol' the year when roughage is
scarce, that il is a feed which is eas
ily handled during the feeding pe
riod, and one which is relished by
all horses and mules. Crain that Ibo
abose reasons aro good ones will
they offset thi' following facts which
have boen carefully worked out at
most of our Southern experiment sta
tions? First ol' all. fodder pulling
reduces the yield ol* shelled norn
per acre. The Florida experiment
slat'on reports the smallest loss of
any station, which was 2.0 bushels
per nero. The Mississippi station re
ports the greatest loss, which was s
bushels per acre. The other stations
reporting gave losses ranging be
tween the above weights, the aver
age being six bushels for all the
Southern Slates reporting. At the
same time the average yield ol' fod
der per nero was I IO pounds. With
tho average price of corn at $1 per
buslud and fodder at $1.26 per hun
dred pounds, and assuming that the I
above weights are representative of ?
any given farm, the man who pulls,
fodder loses fifty cents per acre in
addition to the cost and pleasure of
Willie corn fodder may be a palat
able feed, lt has a poor feeding value
when compared with other forms ol'
hay, which can be easily grown tn
South Carolina, such as cowpeas, oat
and vetch hay. These two crops can
bo grown and harvested for about
$."> per acre each, and on average
land each should give about one ton
of good hay per acre, which is wort li
at least $20 per ton. Moth of these
crops have a high feeding value, so
if those farmers who practice fodder
pulling would discontinue it and
plant oats, one bushel and a half,
and vetch one-fourth bushel in the
fall, harvesting lt in May, followed
by cowpeas. they would make more
rough feed pei' acre, which would
hayo a higher feeding value than
fodder, and would,not decrease their
corn yields from .'1 to S bushels per
acre, and at the same time they
would be growing two leguminous
crops on their land each year, there
by increasing the fertility of their
soil. j. M. Napier,
Assistant Professor of Agronomy.
