Save Your Field Peas.
The common corn field pea is one of onr best crops. If it grew as well at the North, as it does here, and we could grow clover here as well as it does at the North, our Yankee friends would soon persuade us that our field pea is the most valuable crop of the two. It is as good a fertilizer and a better food crop. It is of its value in the latter respect, that I speak now. particularly. A bushel of field peas contains twice as much nutriment as a bushel of corn. For work stock, its value as compared with corn, tor feeding purposes, is even greater than that; because its muscle producing proper ties are so much greater than its fat producing properties. In corn, the ratio of muscle producing power, is as one to seven; while in the field pea this ratio is about, as one to two. That is to say the nutritive value of corn and peas being the same, one bushel of the latter is worth three of the former for making muscle, or lean meat, white for fattening purpo ses,the proportion would be reversed; but the fact being that a bushel of peas contains twice as much nutrition as a bushel of corn, it appears that for making muscle, a bushel of peas is worth six bushels of corn, while a bushel of corn for fattening purposes is worth as much as a bushel and a half of peas. I have seen no analy sis of' the pea hull, but know that it is valuable food, the ratio of fat-producing power to muscle produ cing power, being probably greater in the hull than the pea. Three bush els of peas in the hull will shell out one bushel of seed and a bushel of peas in the hull, is therefore worth as much as a bushel of corn for feeding work stock. The plan which I would recom mend for feeding plow stock, would be to mix the food half and half, — say half a peck of corn, and the same quantity of peas in the hull. They would make the animal health ier; and afford the same amount of muscle fttod. —Farmer in Farm Jour nal.
