Clover with Straw.
National Stockman recommends that
in rainy, catching weather clover be
placed in the rlack or mow with alter
nate layers of straw. It affirms that the
clover comes out green in color aa when
pnt in. Even the blossoms do not
chango color. The straw is also imbued
with the flavor of the clover and Is
eagerly eaten by the cattle. Dairymen
do not generally realize the value of
maintaining the bright green color of
tho hay. This will bo particularly
shown in promoting the yellow color of
the butter made ill winter.

Why it u Popular. , T
Because it has proven its absolute
