Corn SUhko vs. Dry Corn-Fodder.
An interesting experiment with
feeding corn silage and dry corn-
fodder to dairy cows has just been
concluded at the New Jersey Agri
cultural Experiment Station. The
experiment whs conducted by
Director Voorhees and Dairy iTot.
Lane to determine the relative cost
and feeding value of these two
substances. A summary of their
"Applying the results in a prac
tical way, that is to the actual
amount of corn put into the silo,
namely 135 tons, it is shown that
what did cost $134.61 to sNre and
prepare in the form of silage would
have cost in the form of dried fod
der $123.72, or $10.fl2 less. Deducting
from the amount put into the silo
the 4 per cent, loss, it is found that
there remained for leeding 73,120
lbs. of dry matter, sufficient for one
cow for 6,647 days, or for thirty cows
222 days. This, or its equivalent,
was practically what was done with
the silnge, and with an actual
average yield during the period of
seventeen pounds per cow per dav.
we have a total of 112,909 lbs. of
milk. If, as the experiment indi
cated, this yield of milk was 12.8 per
cent greater than could have been
produced from the same dry matter
in the form of dried fodder, there
was a gain of 12,822 lbs. of milk,
which at one and one-half cents per
nound. which was the price which
could have been received for the
milk at wholesale (the milk was
sold at retail) would have amounted
to $192.33. Assuming that only one
cent, per pound could have been se
cured, which is propably nearer the
actual price received from Novem
ber to April in districts distant from
the city, the increase would have
amounted to $128.22; deducting from
this the $10.92, representing the
greater cost of storing the silage,
and we have a difference ou the
basis of one r.nd one-half cents per
Dound of $181.41, and on the basis of
one cent per pound, $117.30, which
shows the increased value of the
corn crop on twelve acres (nearly $10
per acre on the basis of one cent per
pound) when fed in the form of
silage rather than in the form of
Raising Hog on a small Farm.
A great manv farmers who own
small farms do not raiaa hogs,
giving for their reason: "We do
not raise enough corn to ieeu mem.
It is to farmers situated in these
circumstances that I wish to direct

feeding them. This gives the small
farmer a chance to raise the pigs
and sell them to the large farmer
and feeder. The first essential to
success is to have good stock, and
the next is good care and feeding.
Do not try to keep more sows than
can be properly cared for, and aim
to let each sow raise two litters a
year, one litter in March and then
one in August or the very first of
September. If it can be so arranged
let the sows have a range of a clover
field. For feed there is nothing bet
ter than corn and oats, equal parts,
ground and soaked from one feed
10 tne next, wnen tne pigs are
about eight weeks old take the sow
away from them, and she will be
ready to breed again in a few davs.
The first 100 pounds of hog cost the
least money, therefore unless we
have plenty of feed without buying
there can be more clear money made
by raising a larger number of pigs
and selling them at an earlier age.
It is an old saying that "The proof
of the pudding is in the eating

Hogs furnish one of the best
means for marketing the bulkv
products of the farm in concentrated
shape, as they do not take much
tinin in transforming them. This is
one reason why the hog lias been
called the poor man's stock.
It is well to care for mares in foal
during the wintar, but there is such
a thing as coddling them too much
and making them tender. The foal
will require iust about tne same
treatment as the mother has re
ceived. A sheltered place, with

than close confinement in a warm,

The business of the dairyman
does not begin and end witti the
care of the cows, but reaches into
every detail of farm management
A dairy farm should become one

It is poor care, and not hard
work, which usually wears out our

This is the season of the year
when the farmer's wife is happy.
The rush of the harvest is over and
she can take a little leisure. The
anxiety about something to cook has
also ceased, as she has plenty at
