The question of economy of storage
room is entirely in favor of silage,
writes a correspondent of American
Cultivator. Less room is required for
storing the product from a certain
number of acres in the silo than in a
barn in cured condition. Iay placed
in the mow will take up more than
'three times as much room as the same
quantity of food materials put into the
silo. In the case of field cured fodder
corn the comparison comes out still
more favorably to the silo on account
of the greatdr difficulty in preventing
the thick cornstalks from spoiling
when placed under shelter.
Another reason why the silo has been
adopted generally is that an acre of
corn can'be pliaced in it at less than it
can b)e p~ut up as cured fodder. To de
rive full benefit from the food materi
als in the field cured corn fodder it
must be run through a feed cutter in
smnaI! proportions at a time; the corn
must in most cases be hunked, cribbed
and either ground cob ind all or shelled
and ground. In siloing corn the whole
plant is now as a rule run through the
cutter and filled into the silo at once,
thus doing away with the separate
handling of ear corn. Careful experi
ments withl milk cows conducted by
several of our experiment stations have
shown that silage thus made from
corn cut "ears and all'' has produced
somewhat more milk and butter than
dry fodder and ear corn handled and
fed separately, the product from the
same area of land being compared in
E Ixtra Pasture Land.
As animal industry becomes a per
Imanent industry mere et the farm
must be converted into pasture. But if
the fertility of the farm is to .be in
creased, if a good profit is to be real
ised from the new system, two blades
of grass must grow in the place of one;
twice as much stock must be kept on
the same number of acres. It will draw
very greatly upon the intelligence of
the man to handle his pasture land so
that the yeld of forage it produces be
comes even better every year. The
pasturo must have periods of rest. It
cannot. be continually nipped into the
ground. It must net be overstocked.
Forage crops must help it out in a hot,
(dry spell and ini early fall. It will need
a top dressing of manure or some good
commercial fertilizer. Kentucky blue
grass, a native of our state, wvith a mix,
ture of orchard grass, is probably the
best variety of our grasses suited tc
permanent pasture.-Indianapoli News
