Nccordin? to Mr. Bonl nrr's article, the f.!lur of the crop to yield the avrra? pupply of rain due to weather conditions will ena ble the farmer to itore up the silage at a bip savins. IIY JOHN S. HOItDNFll. Tli Silo ami Sllao. Poor corn makes Kood silatro and Kood FilaKo balanced by other feeds Is June blue gras pasture for the win ter months. . Homo farmers of Joseph county have been wise in thi3 fact for year?, many more in recent years, and this year has witnessed an increase of probably DO per cent. Bllo filling is now in full progress, and much corn brdly hurt by the drought and hitfh temperature is mak ing i-plendid feed. .Since tho cattlo industry of our county Is largely limited to dairying, most of this .silage will be fed to dairy cow., of which St. Joseph farmers own about 10-.000, with a total value of $450,000, producing annually a pro duct worth ipproxinuitely $600,000. It is evident that these cows do not all receive silage as part of their daily rations, since tho total production of milk and cream .should be worth at least J 1,0-00, 000. There are also a few &ood beef cat tle feeders in tho county. Most of the5e, thoujrh not all, are. farming the Kankakee river bottom land, where on account of unbalanced plant food conditions, late sprlaff frosts and early Tall frosts, corn so frequently does not mature. This corn will however make Kood silago anl ono farmer has equipped himself with, enough silos to tore 1,2 00 tons. Corn can bo converted into silage much later than this. There are records where shock . corn was run into silos as late as tho middle of Feb ruary, and by adding plenty of water during the filling process silage was produced of splendid feeding value. It is not too late therefore to erect a fdlo if you have corn which should bo converted into silage. Hilos aro constructed theeo days of wood, glazed tile, concrete and oc casionally one of galvanized iron. The conereto ello has the lead in St. Joseph cminty. anl of the various types of concrete pllo, more concrete Mono silos were, constructed this sea son than any other type. It is usually considered by farmers who use silos that they pay for themselves within the first or second year, and the ben efits thereafter are clear profit. This large increase in silos will help very materially to winter a larger number of cattle and horses oven if our hay crop this year "has fallen be low the average. The writer has knowledge of ono farmer ,who has filled his silo with a mixture of corn and soy beans, boh reasonably well mutured. This should olmost mako a well balanced ration. Mr. Bordner has made arrange ments with theXews-Times manage ment to supply the paper with an arti cle every "week.
