FARM TALK Subjects of Interest and Importance to Farmers, Dairyists and Stockmen of the Western Dakotas Contributions to these Column* will gladly be in»erted. Alfalfa bas a Big Future in tbe Western Dakotas. Believes in Alfalla. Frank Schroeder, of Seltna: You newspaper men, I see, are getting ex cited over alfalfa. Well, even if we farmers know more in a minute than .vou can write in an hour, I am glad to ^ay that I am somethingof an enthus iast over alfalfa myself. Some day when I have time. I'll write up the whole story of my experience myself, but will ask you to let people know briefly what my experience has been. In the first place find that after the ground has been thoroughly tilled, that seed should not he seeded too thick. Seed houses will t*ll yon. to ^eed 10 or 20 or more pounds to the acre. Don't you do it, don't listen to them I seeded «pounds per acre, and tnd that too thick. This year I'm go ng to seed less than 5 (Kunds. The dants must have room to develop. Then I've found out that both from u business standpoint and for the good •if the young alfalfa there must be a nurse crop, barley, flax or oats. Where there is nothing else, nature 'rows weeds, and of all the weeds the worst for the young alfalfa plants is that pest the pusley, which spreads over the ground and chokes the young growth. Then I have found out that you can not pack the ground too hard after seeding—the harder, the more healthy the growth. My cattle showed me that, by trampling down that part of last year's lield where the alfalfa shows best. 1 have't yet scored any big success es, hut I am going: to spend a lot of time and money until I have made good, I believe ill alfalfa and in the ability of this country to grow It. Timely Talk on Silos That the farmers of Codington coUnty ire deeply interested in the sibject of silo and silage was manifested by the large attendance at the meeting held in this city Saturday afternoon in the rooms of the Business Men's union at the city hail building, when over 300 were present at the silo meeting ar ranged for by the Watertown Grange. It was a gathering of representative farmers and prominent, bustnass and professional men who are interested in the important subject that is being so much talked of and investigated these days, and when Mayor Martin called the meeting to order it was necessary to throw open the council chamber in order to accommodate the large attendance. The mayor in a few remarks introduced Mr. C. E. Winn of Castlewood, the principal speaker at the meeting, who is a well known dairyman and faucy live stock breed er of Hamlin countv, and who is mak ing a success of the silo. Close Attention Given. Mr. Winn's remarks were listened to with close attention. He started out by explaining the importance ol proper!v tilling the silo, at the right time, just when the corn has glazed or dented. Add water if too ripe, or frozen or dried He said that the aver age farmer loses one eighth of the weight of his steers during the winter because of not using silage, which is the chea|estfood that can be obtained, adding that wherever one silo is built others follow rapidly. "The half ot the benefits of silos have never been told even by silo •gents," said Mr. Winn. Goiug on with his address he said that silage is a great help to digestion and stock fed on it will eat more rough age, and a silo wi'l soon pay for it self. Without a silo at least 37 «-2 per cent of the corn feed is lost Any lilo must b^ correctly built and prop erly taken care of. From cx-tober 25 to September 1 of the year following lie fed 2!H) tons to from lifty to seventj ive head of cattle, gotten from sixty acres of corn. The same corn that is best to get ripe in your own locality is the best to plant for silo. The aver age cow will eat about two baskets of silage (forty pounds) a day, and no bad results will follow if fed after milk ing. The actual cost of feeding a cow milage is about 3 1-2 to 4 cents per day. To FiP the Silo. In tilling the xilo. I»e sure to eat$ fully till it evenly and trainp thor oughly. Keep the leaves evenly dis tributed among the stocks and have the silage wet enough by using water, and use plenty of it- The results of silage or dry shocked corn is at least double in favor of the silage. A 20x30 silo will keep about 25 cows for ten months. A lfi-horseengine will handle about twelve acres of corn per day. and the silage should be cut about ona-half inch long, *ni abould run about six tons of silage to the acre. If drilled in use about one peck to the acre and if checked plant five to six kernels per hill. You will get smaller ears but more of them. Mr. Winn said that frosted corn will make good silage if wet enough with water when put in. but it should be allowed to dry a few days after freezing before putting it in the silo. Fie said that frosted corn was better than too green corn, as green corn will sour, and that a silo partly used in one season could be re-tilled by simply taking off about four to eight inches of the silage on top which will he spoiled. The top of the silage in the silo may be exposed about three days before spoiling. Proper Way to Build. In concluding, Mr. Winn said that a silo should always be built round, and if properly taken care of a wood en silo ought to last about twenty-five years. A roof will greatly strengthen the silo, but it was not necessaj-y for the benelit of the silage. Short talks were made by representa tives of various silo manufacturing concerns, and also by John !?. Hanten and I*. L. Hetts of this city, the latter on the subject of the effect of feeding silage on milk and cream. Sam Dean of Kampeska also made a brief ta Ik. After tendering a vote of thanks to Mr. Winn for his able and interesting address, and also to the Watertown Grange for the success of the meeting, and to the Business Men's union for the use of the rooms, the meeting ad journed.— Watei town Opinion.
