There are five reasons advanced why profitably added to the soy bean can be made your crop rotation. They are: Grain production, forage and silage, green manuring, 'pasture and gathering nitrogen from the air and storing it in nodules on the roots. The grain of the soy bean is rich in protein, or muscle building food, and in oil, and thereby compares favorably with cotton seed meal and oilmeal. It contains more than one-third more protein and twice as much fat as cow-pea hay. In an ex periment conducted at the experiment station in feeding dairy cows it was found the soy bean meal was superior to cotton seed meal for producing both milk and butter, when each of these highly-nitrogenous feeds were fed with the same other fat-producing feed stuffs. As a feed for hogs, several stations have tested the value of soy bean meal. The Indiana Experiment Station found that a ration embracing soy bean meal as the protein portion of the feed gave larger daily gains from smaller quanti ties of feed for each pound of gain than did wheat middlings or tankage when used under similar conditions for pork production. The soy bean, therefore, serves most satisfactorily the purpose of a'suitable grain for use in balancing the high carbo hydrate content of corn. Soy bean bay, when cut at the proper stage of growth and carefully cured, is ' excellent, and for dairy cattle at least yields results equal to alfalfa hay. For bay production soy beans may be plant ed in cultivated rows, or, when the ground is free from weeds, they may be drilled or broadcasted. To get the best hay from soy beans, they should be cut when half or more of the pods are fully grown, but before tbey begin to change color in ripening. Another rule, which is probably the better one to follow, is to cut them when the top leaves begin to turn yellow. At this stage of growth the largest yield ' and at the same time a good quality of hay will be secured. The hay is easier to cure than cow pea hay, the amount of moisture in the vines at harvesting time being less. , The soy bean crop can often be profit ably utilized by pasturing particularly to hogs, especially when fed com in ad dition. This is advisable when harvest ing is interfered with by lack of . labor. bad weather or other causes, and when the crop is grown especially for soil im provement. By this means not only is the crop profitable in itself, but the manure is returned to the soil. The , itml practice is to turn tfie hogs into the soy beans when the pods are nearly full of grain, but before they have be gun to ripen. . V Soy beans are more commonly grown with corn than with any other crop. ' Tbey are planted in different sections in various ways, namely, alternate hills, with the corn in the same row, in alter nate rows of each, in alternate series of two rows each, or broadcasted in mix ture. Such fields when planted in rows " may be harvested for silage, or where the rows alternate the two crops may be harvested separately. Sometimes such mixed fields are utilized by pasturing to hogs. The beans should be planted ja between the corn rows at the time of the .last cultivation.
