TWO NOTED AUTHORITIES ON ALFALFA
In speaking of his experience in the
growing of alfalfa, the Hon. A. P.
Grout of Winchester, 111., one of the
largest alfalfa growers in the state,
has this to say:
"My success at first in growing al
falfa was not startling, hut on the
contrary I met with many discourage
ments. Had it not been for the dod
dies, (sheep and hogs) that seemed so
fond of it, and thrived bo weU on the
small quantities I was able to furnish
them, it is doubtful if I would have
kept up the struggle. A knowledge
of its wonderful feeding value gained
by experience was the incentive that
urged me on.
The time has come in my. experi
ence, and I believe in the experience
of every alfalfa grower when just as

more deterring of honor than that

Joseph E. Wing of Ohio, who haa
160 acres of alfalfa, and who is one
of the best known authorities on this
crop in the United States, says:

No flay So Good as Alfalfa.
There is no other hay bo good as aV
falfa for all kinds of live stock, and
for horses and hogs alfalfa is invalu
able, either as a hay, a soiling crop,
or a pasture. It excels as a hog pas
ture, and, with hogs, makes one of
the most profitable farm combinations.
An alfalfa field is said to be a hog's
idea of heaven.
In root growth alfalfa resembles red
closer, but sends down a stronger tap
root. When properly handled it pro
duces three or four cuttings each
year and remains productive for many
years. Land which is adapted to red
