in a substantial way the cost of a
imilar silo need not exceed $200.
ere is no earthly doubt that if the
nsilage is well packed around the.
dges of tte silo during the process
f filling and the whole surface well
rodden and left level it will keep
icely. There is no need of a roof at
11 in this climate save for the pro
ection of the laborers who get oat;
e ensilage. I did not use any roof
on mine because I want-l to test
this very point, and bought water-;
roof coats for the use of the labor
in bad weather.

Don't make the mistake of having:
your troughs too shallow, and be sure
to arrange so that you can elevate
them as the manure rises. My
