SILAGE IS ROUGHAGE Prize Cattle on a ((Prepared by the United Stairs Dcpart ment of Agriculture.) There Is no roughage which ia of more importance to the producer of beef cattle than silage. The value of Bilage to the beef producer varies con siderably and is dependent upon a large number of other factors. If rough fodders are scarce or are high priced, if the grain is high priced, or If the grain is not near a good market when much of it can be readily sold, Bilage will have a greater value than V the opposite conditions exist. Silage is a great saver of grain re gardless of whether it is to be fed to etock cattle or fattening cattle. It will lessen the grain feeding by prac tically the same amount as is con tained in the silage. The value will also depend somewhat upon the kind of cattle to which it is to be fed. If there is an abundance of rough fod ders which can not be marketed, sil age will not be'so valuable. But in a case of this kind the silage would prove more valuable if used for the calves and pregnant cows and the coarse fodders used for the other Btock. For wintering the entire breeding herd there is no roughage better than Bilage. All of the animals will relish a ration containing it and it will cre ate a good appetite for all other feeds. Cows that are fed all of the silage they will consume along with clover hay will go through the winter in fine shape and make small gains. If the amount of silage is limited, a more economical method of wintering them will be to reduce the silage to a half ration, letting them have the run of a straw stack and feeding about two pounds of cottonseed meal or oil meal per day. Some dry coarse fodder or straw should always be kept before animals .getting silage, as it reduces the amount of silage consumed and pre sents the bowels from becoming too 2 Silo on Mississippi Farm. loose. The succulent feed will cause the breeding cowb to give a good flow of milk even though the calf be born In midwinter, and a thrifty calf will result. If the silage Is free from mold or rotten spots there will be no danger In feeding it to breeding cows, i Silage is especially beneficial for calves which have Just been weaned. They take to this ration quicker than to dry feed and there is usually little loss In weight from the weaning. The ellage should be supplemented with some good leguminous hay, as alfalfa, cowpea, or clover, and the calves should be given a small amount of grain. A mixture of one-half corn chop and one-half cottonseed meal is excellent. Each farmer will have to plan the rations for his cattle according to the amount of the various feeds he has on hand. Stockers can be wintered on ellage and some good hay, fodder, or etraw, but this may not always be the most profitable. When hay is high priced and grain Is reasonably cheap or plenty of silage 1b available, it may toe more economical to omit the hay altogether. A ration of corn silage alone has often been profitable for thin cattle. Stockers which have Been tea u Der ally' ail winter ana maae to put on good rains usually do not make as Hv sains when put on grass as do steers which have not been quite no well fed.

When beeves are expected to sell high in the early summer and the steers are to be finished for market at that time, a heavy roughage ration with a small amount of grain should be fed during the winter months. Silage stands first in rank of all the roughages for finishing cattle. For merly, during the era of cheap corn and other concentrates little attention was given to the roughage, as it was usual ly considered merely a "filler" and of very little economic value 1n feeding. No especial care was taken in select ing any particular kind, nor was the quality or it seriously considered. As the prices of the concentrated feed stuffs advanced, the feeder looked about for methods of cheapening the cost of producing beef, and Boon found this could be accomplished by using judgment in selecting his roughage with respect to the grain fed. By combining it with other feeds the efficiency of the ration Is increased to such an extent that the amount of the daily gains is invariably greater and the cost of producing a pound of gain is lessened. The heaviest daily gains are usually made during the first the feeding period, and silage can then be used to advantage in large quantities with, a 6mall amount of grain, but as the feeding progresses the amount of silage should be les sened and the grain increased. In some places the price of hay and sto ver is so high that the greater the pro portion of silage used in the ration the more profitable is the feeding. SUPPLY OF TOBACCO PLANTS Open-Air Beds Are Cheapest and Give Quicker Start Seed Should Be Sown Evenly. The Buccessful tobacco planter must raise his own plants; open-air bedB are the cheapest for the main supply. As a rule, plants raised in open air stand transplanting better, and usu ally get a quicker and better start than those raised in a hotbed or cold frame, covered with cheese cloth or canvas. Choose for the plant bed a thdtorofi ennt nrotected on the north f and west sides' by a belt of trees, close board fence or building. Have tne ground plowed and well harrowed. If not too near any of the buildings, dry brush should be spread over the bed and burnt; after the soil has cooled harrow once or twice to mix the ashes with the earth, then eow the eeed and rake it in. A bed ten feetguare will furnish enough plants for one 'icre. The amount of Beed required to sow thiB space is one teaspoonful. The seed should be sown evenly. Sow one half the seed lengthwise of the bed and the other half across the bed. Cover the seed with fine rake or brush. Some planters tread the seed in. This quantity of eeed, properly sown, is sufficient to produce stout, stocky, short-stemmed plants, with an abundance of fibrous roots for one acre. If ground Is rather poor, sow one gill of fine animal bone meal to every 3x6 space. No animal manure should be used, as it will bring in weeds and grass. Expert growers uee the same ground each season for growing their plants. This same meth od is followed by market gardeners In growing cabbage, cauliflower and to mato plants for the main crop. Bet ter plants can be grown and at the least cost. If the Beason should be bad and the soil dry, the beds must be watered late in the evening and the plants dusted every morning with sifted wood ashes and soot to keep off the fly. Cheapening the Rations. The Iowa station has found that a small amount of oil meal or cotton seed meal added to corn and oats im proves and cheapens the ration for work horses. A mixture of 77 pounds of shelled corn, 15 pounds of oats and 8 pounds of oil meal gave somewhat better results than oil meal, and the ration was a little cheaper In the proportion of 79 pounds of corn, 15 pounds of oats and 6 pounds of oil meal.
