Sheridan County is raiding
corn this year than ever before and
nearly every farm has several acres
of corn planted and which corn has
reached a luxuriant growth at this
time and with proper care will solve
the feed bill for the next year for the
stock. The biggest drawback with
silos is their cost and lack of available
money to build them.
the below described silo would solve
this problem.
jvh. Stebbins gives the following in

question that is being considered by a

Some stockmen are able to provide
the regular above-ground silo,
structed either of tiles, concrete or
staves. These are all goo«l. Others

s till others will hesitate to invest the
money and labor required for either
of these standard types of silos until
they have had more experience, tor
such, the trench silo offers a satisfact

during weather unsuitable for thresh

The trench silo consists of an exca
It would seem
vation about eight feet deep and six
teen feet wide and any length desired.
Since a cObic foot of silage weighs
about 35 pounds, one running foot of

or 4480 pounds, the equivalent of 2.25
tons. Thus bv dividing the number of
tons by 2.24 we find the length wanted
in feet. For example, we have 100
tons to put in. We divide 100 by the
12.24 w hich gives 44.6, the correct
length. If 40 pounds of silage is fed
per day per head, a ton of silage will
serve one cow 50 days, or 10 cows for
five days. Thus, 100 tons of silage
rould feed 10 cows 500 days or 20
cows for 260 days at 40 PpumMHch
per day. These figures will be helpful

"To fill the silo, it 4 necessary to
have a silage cutter and an engine.
An 18-inch cutter can be operated by
a 10-20 horsepower engine if care is
used in feeding, but if a more powerful
engine is available it wil do the work
faster. One cutter should be able to
do the work for feur farms a season.

"Success in preserving
pends upon packing well to keep the
air out. Silage spoils where too much
air gets in. This is fundamental. Uie
rilage is run into the trench, and is
packed by tramping. The trench is
filled to the top «nd heaped or round
ed up so that as the sihige settles it
will still leave the trench full. Aftei
this it is covered with straw two oi
three feet deep. When ready to feed
it is opened at one end instead of being
fed off the top as a regular silo.
