SOIL GETS HUNGRY TOQ.
Dairy Fa rniiDg Gives the Groups
Much Needed Food
pr all animals kept on the farm the
dairy cow Is the most eminent.' She
j's'fhe faamer's highest trump card in
funding up the fertility of ills soil.
Many eastern dairy men have attemp
ted lb set the mlik producing end of
the business oyer against the prop
growing end and from the unwelcome
results have come the growing recog
nition of the fact that plants and
animals (jows and grain and forage
crops are economically Inseparable.
In its best estate the dairy farm pro
duces the food for the cows. Ony can;
not neglect the growing of forage and
grain crops aad rind I) Hi largest
returns through a Jifghjy specialized
The greatest question before the
dairy farmer today Is that of growing
suitable food crops and Its reciprocal
effect upon the fertility of his farm.
The great need of a wider growth of
forage crops is shown by Uie present
tendency toward the depletion of
available fertility. In many caes we
are growing too little and buying too
much' both of feed and fertljlty.
Many dairymen buy ton9 of com
mercial feedstuffs, not to fcppplement
but tp piece out the home-grown sup
ply. To buv feeds whicp will balance
up the deficiency of protein In the
home.grown supply Is entirely proper,
orovidlng the right kind js purchased.
Feeds like cottonseed meal, o)l meal
and gluten which possess a high fer
tilizing value are the real supplem
ents, as they usually supply the com
pound that are decliieut on dairy
Stable manure and the rots and
stubbie of the legume and grain crop:j
turned under will liberate surlicienp
potassium. Phosphorus is the one ele
ment that Is most llk3ly to bo defic
ient. It is supplied in linjitcd quan
tities by stable manure, but that
source is inadequate. Acid phosphate
mixed with manure before it Is app
lied will make up the deficiency on
this element. Its use pays handsom
ely on the average dairy farm.
