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
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

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

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

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

govern to a large extent the method
to be followed during the winter.
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
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

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
