Som Silage lt Better Than Mixture of Field Pass and Oata. Canada field peas aud oats sown on food soil nnd under favorable condi? tions will be ready for soiling or en? silage In about two and a half months, rhe growing of oata and peas together. lays Hoard's Dairyman, produces a larger amount of nutrients per acre thnn when grown separately. The combination works well and produces a very palatable feed. In 100 pounds of corn silage there are 17.2 pounds of digestible nutrients and in 100 pounds of oats and pea silage ".bout IS pounds. Tbe compo? sition of all feedstuffs varies, especial? ly when cut green; but. on the whole, lt is safe to say that corn silage will contain more digestible nutrients tban oata and peas, although tbe oats and peas are richer in protein. It would not be advisable to sow clover or timothy seed with oats and peas, for they form a very dense growth wblch would not permit the young clover or timothy plants to grow. nnd. If they did. they would lie so weak thnt after the peas nnd oats were removed, the sun's rays would tie very apt to kilt them. We do not think lt advisable under any conditions to sow grass seed with oats and peas. Novel Chicken Roost. Q.
