PRICKLY COMFREY.
An lutem dr Dadrmna. Who rinds I
isn mses Crup for Cows.
The ares required for June pasture
had been the weak point in intensive
dairying with me, but by the adoption
et prickly oomfrey, so as to bridge over
the time from the usual turning out to
grm up to haing, a great and sure sup
ply of the best fodder is obtained, and a
small run at pasture for air and exer
cls only is required. Planted in rows
three feet apart, sixteen inches apart in
the rows, top dressed liberally and well
cultivated in the spring, prickly com
frey by the last of May will grow waist
high and too thick to allow one to pass
through it readily. In a moist season
several cuttings may be made.
With a scythe and fork one may cut
and heap it more rapidly than any other
early soiling crop, and a mowing ma
chine is scarcely needed, so small is the
ares required at each feeding. It is
eaten by my cows with the greatest
avidity, and is fed as an alterative to
the working cattle and horses which,
being stabled the entire year, are much
benefited by it, especially as it is not so
laxative a green rye or lover.
Prickly comtrey is an enormous yield
er; it will produce more nutriment, per
haps more weight, from a given area
than Indian orn, provided moisture
enough be present. It shows a nutritive
analysis closely approaching that of
clover; it produces cream of the finest
favor; it is almost medicinal in its
whdesounas; once established it is
the mot easily grown crop on the farm.
Why, then, has it been tried and con
damned so generally? Simply because
the taste for it is one acquired against
the will ao the animal.
A cow will starve rather than eatI
freshly cut cotrey leaves. Ran them
through a cutter and mix them with an1
equal portion of corn meal and bran,
and th cow in trying to get at the meal
will seon aquire for thec r a taste
