An especially timely bulletin
has just been issued from the
Missouri experiment station by
Dean H. J. Waters giving the
results of some experiments to
determine the value of different
forage crops for hogs.
Thirty-six pigs weighing
50 pounds, each, were fed in
lots on different forage crops in
connection with corn until they
were ready for market, accurate
account being kept of the cost
of gains made.
In cheapness of gains the
feeds used ranked as follows:
Corn and skim milk, oheapeet;
corn and alfalfa, second ; corn
and red clover, third; corn and
blueerrass. fourth: corn and
rape, fifth: corn and ship stuff,
A saving of about 75c a hun
dred in the cost gain was effect
ed by using green clover in
stead of fresh bluegrass. A
saving of SI a hundred was
effected by using: alfalfa instead
When it is realized that alfalfa
comes on early and when pro
perly clipped stays green all
summer and until the very hard
freezes of early winter, it3 im
portance as a hog pasture is ap
parent. Clover yields more forage per
acre than bluegrass, and as
shown by these experiments has
a much higher feeding value.
It is of the utmost importance,
therefore, to provide this sort of
pasture for hogs rather than to
require them to run on bluegrass
pasture, or even worse than
bluegrass, a timothy pasture, or
even far woise than this, to con
fine them in a dry lot in the
This bulletin recommends a
succession of crops for profitable
hog pasture. The bulletin is for
free distribution, and may be
had by addressing the experi
ment station at Columbia, Mo.

The Experiment Station's Ex
perience With Oats.
The agricultural experiment
station at Columbia has recently
conducted a large number of ex
periments with oats, from which
some valuable conclusions can
be drawn. It has been shown
that there are two important
obstacles in the way of produc
ing a high yield of oats "in Mis
souri. The first is thelfact that
farmers depend too -much upon
home-grown or native seed. No
amount of care will maintain the
quality or productiveness of the
average oat varietyin Missouri.
If farmers would secure an early
variety of oats, like the Early
Champion or the Kherson, from
Northern Iowa, Minnesota, the
Dakotas or Wisconsin at least
every other year, the yield of oats
in Missouri would be increased
25 per cent. There is one native
variety that has value-the Texas
Red Rust Proof-and where this
can be secured of good quality it
may oe as good as the northern
The second obstacle in the way
of large oat yields is the careless
methods of seeding. It almost
always pays to put oat land in
good condition either by plowing
or thorough disking and to drill
the oats rather than to broadcast
them. Where one good crop is
occasionally secured by this early
careless seeding, four crops fail
to make as good a yield as where
they are put in later and better.
Experiments show that it is more
important to get oats in wel
rather than very early, contrary
to a very generally accepted
opinion. The right sort of seed
and the right sort of seeding
would increase the oat yield in
Missouri 50 per cent in spite of
our unfavorable climate.
