Every dairyman knows that cows
will do their best on fresh June wis
tur Tho grass Is succulent and i-al-ntable,
and the conditions for a maxi

ditions, however, do not last very long.
The silo comes ns near to suppling

Highly seiiBltho dairy cows recent
uny sudden or violent chango in feed,
und will show It by a decreased milk
flow. The change from fall pasturo
to dry feed Is alwaH followed by a
shrinkage In the milk.
In changing from the pasture to tho
tllago, the change Is not so great, and
often the cows Increase tho flow of
milk when storied on silage. Soveral
dairymen havo recently mado tho
statement that tho Increased profltB
paid for tho silo tho first year.
Sllago Is not a completo ration for
a dairy cow. Silage Is high In carbo
hydrates, and some concentrate or
roughago with a high protein content
should be fed with It, such as wheat
bran, oil meal, cotton seed meal or
alfalfa or clover hoy.
When It Is considered that corn
can be grown so easll; and In every
section of the country, It stands at
the head of the list of forage cropa for

Corn can bo planted somewhat
thicker than general!) used In grow
Ing grain, but not thick enough to
provent the good-ear development
Ono dalr)mau, who has had good
success In growing corn for tho silo,
and puts up about one thousand tout
a )car, says that ho plants one third
moro seed for tho silage corn than for
tho corn grown for grain.
Tho amount, however, depends much
upon tho variety, and tho condition of
Tho alio of the silo, of course, de
pends upon the number of cattle to bo
fed. It should nover be less than 20
feet high, becauso pressure Is neces
sary to proservo tho silage. The high
er the better. A good rule Is to have
It twlco as high us tho diameter.
Of course, a silo will cost some
thingall farm buildings do but
there Is no building that can be erect
ed on tho farm that will pay better.
There are many kinds of silo, and
made of different materials. Con
crete, cement, brick, tile and several
kinds of wooden silo. Tho wood silo
Is cheapest, of course, but It Is not bo
durablo as tho concreto or tile.
The different styles rango from
three to flvo dollars per ton capacity,
for tho concreto and tho ttlo silo,
while tho wooden stave silo will cost
frbm two to three dollars per tou ca
pacity. When ono considers that tho crop
can be grown and put lc tho silo at a
fost that should not exceed two dollars
per ton, and that It Is worth at least
twlco that much for feed, aud the
large part of that feed Is practically
lost without the use of the alio, the
value of this method of preserving the
forage crop la very apparent
A feed cutter with a btower or ele
vator Is necessary for filling the alio.
A good cutter, with a capacity of forty
to fifty ton a day will cost about
one hundred and thirty-five dollars.
The power to run It may be a gat
or a steam engine. Tbla can uiually
be hired for a few daya during the)
filling process. Or, where several
dairymen on adjoining farms have
alios, It Is economy to own the cutter
and power lu partnership.
