The time has been when there was abundant free range for the herds of cattle that supplied the people of
the world with meat. Free range is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.- The present HIGH PRICE OF BEEF
proves this, and also proves to the wide-awake farmer that there is more good money in livestock than in any ■,
, other branch of farming. . ... . -.
The best pasture or meadow is to be obtained by sowing a number of different varieties. In sowing a
PASTURE you want to form a sod that will not be easily destroyed by the trampling of stock, you also wish
to plant such varieties that you will have a succession of crops following one another the year round. On
the other hand, in sowing for HAY you wish to plant such grasses as will mature at the same season, yet will
form a smooth, even sod, free from bunches.
What grasses will you plant on that wet bottom? What grasses will you plant on that dry, sandy hillside?
Which will you plant for pasture, and which for hay? We have a man who is paid to answer just such ques
tions, and answer them intelligently. Write to us for this information, telling us the character of your land
and whether you wish to sow for hay or pasture, and we can tell you what grasses will be sure to catch and
will be of value after they grow.
Did you ever try winter rye and spring vetches (vicia sativa) for an early spring crop? They are hard to
BEAT. The vetches are the equal of Alfalfa in feeding value, and by planting with rye or oats as a nurse crop
they can be cut with a mower, and fed green, or will make an enormous quantity of good hay.

high germinating quality and free from weed seeds. Red Clover, without any dodder; Mammoth Clover that
