THERE IS GOOD PROFIT IN FEEDING CATTLE

UTIUZE COTTON SEED G(
Manurial Value of Product Is
Plant Foed in Average Ton Estimated CO
to Be Worth $93.70-Goes Hand op
In Hand With Leguminou
(By DR. OEORGE B. FRAPS, Texas Ex- in
Ia discussing the ways in which the
value of cotton products may be util- p
lied to the utmost, the value of thei
manure _rom animals fed on cotton
seed meal must not be neglected, w
though it is too often disregarded.
In most northern states, cotton seed
- LAs purchased for feeding with the
11ll ~knwledge that it has a high ma
nurial value. Hence the manure from
it is saved very carefully, and the
feedpr obtains double use; first as a
feeding stuff, then as a manure. He
can therefore afford to pay a higher
price than many of his southern broth
era, who realize only on the feeding
value of this product. The purchase
of concentrated feeding stuffs, with
careful saving of manure. is as recog
nised means of adding fertility to the
soil as the purchase of fertilisers.
Hand in hand with it goes the growth
of leguminous crops, cowpeas, clover,
alfalfa, vetches, etc., which take up
nitrogen'from the air, are fed to the
animal, and, in the form of manure go
to the soil to increase its content of
The plant food in an average ton of
cotton seed meal is estimated to be
worth $23.70. On4y a comparatively
small part of this is retained in the
animal, with a liberal allowance, the
value of the excreta, solid and liquid,
would be $20 for each ton of cotton
seed meal fed. The weight would of
course be considerably more than a
ton. since a large amount of water is
present, besides the residues of the
bhulls or other roughage fed along with

preservation of manure. but the ma I

properly cared for. In a great many
cases, however, only a small part of
the manurial value of the meal is re
allsed. The liquid manure is lost.jhe
solid manure is exposed to the A~lna
until the most valuable portions are
wasted out of it; in such cases only a
small part of the manurial value of
the meal is realized.
It is well to understand that when
cotton seed meal is fed its value does
not end: that the manure from it too
often despised, neglected, or improp
erly cared for, makes up a consid
able part of its value: and that thoseI
who take advantage of both its feed
ing value and its manorial value, so
far as is possible, can afford to pay a
better price for it than those who
.tilize only its feeding value.I
ton the cattle were able to pay for that
With cotton seed meal at $24 per
ton and freight charges of $100 on 60 ly
cattle, Lot No. 1 paid $6.86 per ton for free
silage,' Lot No. 2 paid $7.91 per ton for addf
stover, and Lot No. 3 paid $7.00 per aite
ton for hulls. b.e
The prices obtained for the silage The
and stover is fully double the cost of
production, thus leaving the farm a
good profit for growing them.
The cattle fed silage made greater
and cheaper gains than the other two
lots, and took on a better finish.
The cattle fed stover made slightly "At
better gains than the lot fed on hulls, app
and at less cost. like
The cotton seed meal required per ltct
pound of gain in the silage fed steers wih
is 3.22 pounds as compared with 4.57 bur
pounds in the stover fed lot, and 4.69
pounds in the lot fed hulls. The cost of
of gain was 6.4c per pound with the tao
silage fed cattle, 9.82c per pound with thi
the lot fed stover, and 11.9e per pound an
with the lot fed on haulls. me
In the 344,080 pounds, or 172 tens, fm
of fertilizer obtained from the 60 cat
tie, there is a difference of only $46 84 a
in three-fourths of the manurlal value ak
of the feed and the actual value as CU
shown by weight and analysis The tH
shed in which the cattle were fed was ge
not floored, was kept fairly well al
bedded. The high value of $3.42 per ma
ton for the manure will illustrate the so
necessity and advantages of feeding tw,
the cattle under conditions that will m4
prevent unnecessary loss when the l.
cattle are not fed in the fields where
e the manure is required.
When cattle are fed on a cement fr
Sfloor, and sufficient bedding used, our p
experiments would indicate that three- Ai
L. fourths of the manurial value of the
s feed will be available for use in the
e fields, which may be counted as added
r profits, less the cost of labor. ex
