A sight that has attracted the atten
tion of many of tho visitors during
tho past two days IIIH been the filling
of tho now silo down at the College
Many questions have boon asked
during the last few works as to the
nature and URn of limo tall tanklike
structure built at tho end of tho barn
next to tho pike and the answer that
it was a silo to be filled with ensilage
has not added much to tho informs
tion of tho questioners
Briefly a silo is a large tank or
receptacle capable of being mado air
tight into which finely cut green
or partially ripe forago of any sort
may bo filled where it goes through
boat or fermentation which on ac
count of its closely packed condition
and the keeping out of tho air does
not spoil tho feed but preserves it
In this preserved state it is called
euailage aud is nearly as green and
succulent as when it was put into the
silo As long as tho proper conditions
of excluding tho air aro kept up tho
forage can be preserved in this shape
for an indefinite time It is oaten
with great relish by rattle especially
milch cows sheep hogs and oven
horses and mules though horses and
mules should not bo fed so large a
proportion of ensilage in their daily
ration as is beneficial to other stock
The silo built for the College farm
is of twoinch cypress staves hold to
go her with strong iron hoops with
lugs for tightening It is thirty feet
high and eighteen feet in diameter
As the location is a bank giving access
to a basement cow barn a brick and
cement foundation wall throe foot
deep with a firmly cemented bottom
adds about three feet to the depth
The staved part is rated to hold one
hundred and fifty tons of green feed
and the brick foundation will hold
about twelve tons more
It is being filled by a thirteen inch
Ohio ensilage and fodder cutter
manufactured by tho Silver Manufac
turing Co of Salem Ohio on which
they gave a very generous discount in
price for tho benefit of tho College
