provide summer pasture. Other cereals will answer better.
Peas and any of the cereals sown together make excellent
pasture for sheep. It comes in next after winter rye. And
in all the prairie country what better pasture can be grown
for horses and cattle than a mixture of wheat, cats barley and
spring rye,sown with the drill and at the rate of three bushels
of the mixture per acre? And if grass sees are sown at the
same time, a good stand is almost certain to be obtained.
