SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5 xy. . .THE D E S B It E T FARMER .... . I
growth becomes softened and retains
its succulence, and when rightly fed
there should be little or no loss from
waste, as it is eaten up clean.
In my opinion it requires less work
to put the -crop in the silo, than to
harvest in the old way and handle
over two or three times before it can
be placed before the cows or other
stock, And further I believe the crop
thus cared for will be worth at least
one-third more, all things considered,
than when fed dry.
A large amount of corn can be put
in the silo of average size, and when
the work is completed it is then under
shelter in the best condition now
known, and ready for use when
wanted.
The silo should be thoroughly con
structed, be air and water tight. The
round form is the one now mostly
used, and they should not be too large
in diameter but of good height, for
the better keeping and feeding of the
silage.
They should be placed where it will
be the most convenient, thus saving
time and labor. Where there is a
large stock to feed it would be better
. to have two moderate sized silos than
a very large one.
Where it is desirable to make use
' of a large amount of green feed in
the summer season, a small silo filled
expressly for the purpose will be
found of the greatest advantage, as
experience has proven.
Where a crop of corn is well cared
and best of them can be broken off to
husk and the remainder put in the
silo as soon as possible.
Not only can corn be made into en
silage, although it may be the best
crop for the purpose, but clover, al
falfa and even oats and rye, when at
the proper stage of growth. A silo
filled with a mixture of corn and
clover would make an excellent feed
for stock.
Silage should not be fed alone to
stock. There should be along with

it a portion of dry fodder, and none
will be better for this purpose for
cows and young growing animals
than good clover hay, as that comes
the nearest to making a well balanced
ration.
And then the grain feed should be
of such kinds as will help to make
the best possible ration for the ani
mals. With such feed as this the cows
when fresh in milk shouldi do as well
in winter in the production of a good
quality and amount of milk, as in the
summer if otherwise well cared for.
And not only is good ensilage one
of the best feeds for cows giving milk,
but it will be excellent as a part of the
lation for fattening of animals, per
haps with a little variation in the
kind and amount of grain fed with It.
For spring calves the following
winter and for the older growing ani
mals, silage will be found ve.ry useful
as a part of their feed. Try it and
you will be surprised to find how well
they like it. It can be fed in modera
tion to pigs and brood sows also with
advantage.
On the farm of the writer there has
been a silo for a good number of
years, following the old practice of
growing fodder corn to cure and feed
dry, and the conclusions here arrived
at arc largely the results of experi
ence. The farmer rightly situated who
builds a silo and makes an intelligent
use of it can hardly fail of being
pleased with the results and will won
der why he did not do it before. Try
it and sec. Get ready to build one
another year and then enjoy the bene
fits of its use.

MOSELEY'S OCCIDENT CREAM
ERY. In this week's issue the Moseley &
Pritchard Mfg. Co., of Clinton, Iowa,
have an advertisement of Mosclcy's
Occident Creamery and Refrigerator
combined, to which we call attention.
While it is intended mainly for use
in farm dairies to raise cream and fur
nish a refrigerator for family use, it
can be used in restaurants, hotels,
boarding schools and any institution
where many persons arc boarding.
It is so arranged that a glass of
milk can be drawn at any time with
out disturbing the cream. In its use
there is no skimming of milk, as the
latter is drawn from underneath the
cream hence no lifting of cans, cither H
full or empty. The cans being washed H
while in position. H
