farmers are seeing'tho benefits de
rived from tho use of rIIos. More si
los have been erected In tho last two
years than in the previous 10 years.
The silos have been a great aid to the
farmers In dairying and contracts for
many more will be let soon. The use
of ensilage and Its preparations is still
a new thing with some Missouri farm
ers. The college of agriculture of the
University of Missouri has sent out
some instructions in operating them,
Corn is ready to bo cut for silage
when the grain Is in the dent and
glazed, but can still-be broken with
the thumb nail. At this stage, under
normal conditions, the two or three
'bottom leaves will .be turned brown
and th shuck will bo turnlnz vpllow
at the end. ThcVe Is greater danger
of putting up silage too dry rather than
too moist. In a stave silo the staves
should be tightened up to exclude the
air and generally loosened a little
after the silage swells the staves. The
Inside wal of a concrete sllo-should
be washed with a thin mixture ot ce
ment and water every two or three
years. This fills the pores and keeps
the air from the silage.
It wilt tak'e at least six teams to
keep the average silage cutter busy.
Corn should not be cut down too far
ahead or it will dry out too much. Two
men should work In the silo distribut
ing the silage with forks. Where a
silage distributor Is used one man Is
sufficient. They should keep the silage
higher at the walls than In the center
and should continual) tramp the sil
age next to tho walls.
The tramping Is especially to keep
out the air. When possible allow the
machine to stand two or three days
and refill to make use pt all the ca
pacity. Finish filling the silo by run
nlng In a load of grass or weeds. This
will rot and seal the top and prevent
having to throw out the same amount
of spoiled Bilage.
The silage should feel wet after it
Is cut In the silo. If the corn is very
mature when cut and Is therefore too
dry add water. A, small stream may
be rui Into the blower' from a barrel
or tank. It Is especially Important
that the silage be well tramped. The
blower should bo run a few minutes
every morning in order to clear the
