CURE HAY WELL
Can Be Kept indefinitely Without
Danger of Heating If Prop
AIR CIRCULATION IS NEEDED
Crosswise Method of "Cording" Pro
vents Air Spaces From Being Cov
ered and Insures Ventilation
(Prepared 5y the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Baled hay that has been thoroughly
cured in the ba-n or stack before bal
ing can be stored Indefinitely without
danger of heating, say specialists. It
may be plied so that the bales fit very
closely together. Hay baled from the
windrow and cock, however, unless
very well cured. is likely to heat more
or less in storage. Sometimes the heat
ing becomes so intense that the hay
becomes severely damaged or even un
Lessen Danger of Heating.
Damage from heating may be greatly
lessened lad sometimes entirely obvi
ated by storing the balovs on edge, al
lowing an inch or two of air space be
tween them. When bales are piled fiat
wise the air is excluded and h, dting
is likely to occur, whereas leavii. an
air space tends to prevent heating by
inducing cirenlation, which cools the
hay. The first layer of bales placed
in a barn should be placed on edge,
and the second and every alternate
layer should be placed on edge and
crosswise. This crosswise method, or
"cording," prevents any of the air
spaces in the tier from being entirely
covered and insures ventilation through
the entire pile. The heated air works
up around the edges of the bales and
the cooler air enters from the sides
Methods of Storing.
When bales that have been laid flat
on their sides begin to heat it becomes
necessiary to move the hales and pile
them in the manner just deserlhed. If
there are any indleations of heating
when the hay is put into the harn, or
if the hay grower has any doubt about
the liay keeping, it is best to pile the
hales crosswise on edge. rather than
take any isk, even though this mlethod
of storing wastes more or less stor
age space. Cases are on record in
whlih lay growers, usually beginners,
have haled hay from the windrow and
cock, and because it spoiled in the
mow, owing to Imlproper storing, have
become convinced that haling from the
field was not a success, not realizing
that the fault lay in the manner in
which the iay was stored.

HOGS ECONOMICAL FOR MEAT
Animais Produce More Flesh for Qiven
Quantity of Feed Than Either
Cattie or Sheep.
Hogs are economical when it comes
to converting feed into mleat. Thley
thus produce more flesh for a given
quantity of feed than cattle or sheep1.
Farmers cannot afford to buy meat
if it is at all possible to raise hog. on
the farm. And there are very few
farms where hogs cannot be raised to
advantage, at least enough for thle
home meat supply, if pains are taken
to providle grazing crops.
This is a favorable time to start, fly
preparing land and getting ready to
sow crops for grazing farmers may
take thought for tihe morrow.
Bly beginning with breed sows it does
not take long to raise enough hogs to
make enough meat for the ordiary
famnit:'. !~ut the feed should be avail
able and the pasture prepared before
a start is made.
