PAYS TO FERTILIZE MEADOW
increase In the Yield of Hay Estimate
ed From Three-Quarters to One
Ton Per Acre.
Several years ago when cutting hay
next to a patch of wheat in tbe cams
field, t. e.. there was no fence between.
I noticed that the hay adjoining the
wheat was much heavier in widths of
a drill than elsewhere, writes F. P.
Cerlsch In the Michigan Farmer; lo
fact, there was so much difference
that I began to study out tbe reason,
which explained Itself simply enough.
In drilling the wheat the fall be
fore with 250 pounds of 2:8:2 ferti
liser per acre, and running the drill
out on tbe meadow, there would be
from two to four feet of meadow fer
tilised while in going back the drill
would not be set in gear until at the
edge of the wheat field, consequently
every other width of the drill would
show a marvelous difference in the
This aet me to thinking that It
would be a good Investment to fer
tilise meadows, and the following fall
I fertilised five acres with the same
result, raising tthe disks and drilling
the fertiliser over the top, and since
then we have been doing so, and I
am satisfied we harvest from three
quarters to one ton of hay per acre
more where we use tha fertilizer
The fertilizer can be sown late In the
fall before the Enow covers the
ground, or In the early spring.
8ucecss With Cattle.
Said Prof. J. M. Truman, of the
State Agricultural college: "If success
lias been obtained In one breed of cat
tle, stick to that breed." President
-vV. H. Lee advises that the summer
silos should largely take the place of
the pastures after June. He predicted
a great Increase In the average grain
yield and in the culture of alfalfa. He
thought that many farmers in remote
districts would do better In raising
good cows to sell than shipping milk
cream or butter.
Egg Yield and the Feed.
The egg yield can be controlled by
the feed and manner of feeding.
When fresh-laid eggs have an offen
sive odor when broken or cooked, it
Is time to examine the quell ty of food

manure piles and the like have a
strong tendency to cause a bad smell
