STEPS TO TAKE IN FILLING
SAVING THE KAFIR CROP
Professor W. A. Liuklater of A.

Cutting and Shocking
and Then Threshing
"I am writing you. in regard to
tome knfir corn which ! want to use
in filling n silo. This is my first ex-
perience in silo lilting. This katir
1 speak of is now in the milk, and oil
account of heav) rains this f ill the
stalk will be very sappy. Do yo'j
think that ten days from now would
be too soon to c;;t this kaflr? Would
you advise leaving the kafir to dry
about two days before puitins Into
silo? Anil if the feed should be
rained on after it is cut, befor? it
could be gotten into the silo. would
that injure the ensilage? I waut .1
sweet ensilage and not acidy. Do yon
think it would be bvj-t to us* some
water In putting lip the kaflr? Some
advocate using water. Would "syp"
water do? That is used for watering
the stock."—K. II., Woodward cour.ty.

l;atir would be very nearly ready in

feed very much to be rained on before
putting in the silo, not so much as It
would for making hay. and it can be

think it will be necessary for you to
use any water in the silo, and would
rather not use .v if it could be
avoided. Water is only used when i
feed is too dry to pack well. It should
not be necessary where fodder !•; put

that the mineral water would hurt it

Santa Fe Railroad'* Official Estlpiat.
1a Hundred Million Bushels-
Other Crops Large.
.Oklahoma City, Okla.—The official
j estimate of the Santa Fe railroad t
1 is just out and places the yield of j
j the Oklahoma corn crop for the pres-
! ent season at 100,000,000 bushels. The
' estimate was compiled from a large
number of local estimates made by
i the station agfents along its Oklahoma
' lilies and is regarded about as good
I a pre-harvast gauge as could be had. (
These figures are compiled by thu ,
! road for the pjirpose of ascertaining ;
J how much rolling Block will be requir- j
' ed to handle the output and us no I
incentive to exaggeration can be as- |
j signed to the work, the report Ib caus- j
| ing considerable pleasure in coninier-
; clai and industrial circles, indicating
> as it does, that the yield is far In
! excess of what their most sanguiue
| expecfations had led them to expect.
I At the present price of the grain, a
] crop of 100,000,000 bushels in Oklaho-
: mu this season would enrich the state
I by from $«;>,000,000 to $70,000,000, which
is as much as $lif>,000,000 in excess of
the valuation of any previous year's
i output. Other official and semi-of-
ficial estimates seem to corroborate
the forecast of the Santa Fe and of
the half dozen accredited ones so far

■ the yield below 10,000,000 bushels, the

cut into short pieces before feeding.
Chopped heads may also be fed to
hogs on a clean floor from which the
trash is removed before feeding
again. Kafircorn will not bring the
best returns when fed alone to hogs.
Alfalfa or cowpea hay should be fed
in racks from which the hogs may
tat what they want. Peanut hay or
peanuts so well with kafircorn or
inilomaize as hog feed. If none of j
these are available, feed one-tenth to
one-fifth as much cottonseed meal as

Saving the Kafir Crop
"I have a nice field of. katir corn.
The majority of the h^ads ara now

to kindly advise me as to how to harv-
est the crop in order to get the hr;:
results out of the fodder and grain

I would recommend that as soon as
your kafir gets ripe that you cu: i'
with a corn binder and shoek i tip.
As soon as the fodder is th >r.'iughiy

engine of sufficient power, v SI ti • i

shredded up with the threshing ma-
chine. can be sto: 1 i.: a iick and
will be eaten with, much les.v wust«
by livestock than if fed a. headed fod-
der. Considerable care Mil have to
be exercised in the storing of the
kafir grain, as it is inclined to h .*•
more readily than most other zri\ i\x.
It should be stored in quantities not lo
exceed 10'J b"ii*h *Is in a pl. ee, and ♦ v-
amined from tiire to time "to find out
whether it is heating-or i*ot. If the
grain heats it of necessity must be
removed and cooled out.
Kafir should b< u
horses or hog;. at.<
sweep mlHs with kafircorn attach-
ments to force the heads between the
burrs. Threshed kafircorn and milo-
maize should always be ground be-
fore feeding to sto'-k of any kind ex-
cept poultry. The grains are too
small for complete mastication—and
there will be much waste if they are
fed unground. Both kafircorn and
rnllomaize contain less oil than is
contained in corn and it is important
when feeding them to balance the
ration with alfalfa, cowpea or peanut
, hay or cottonseed meal. The profit
from f« e1in2 v. ill be much greater
when this is done. Hogs should never

• .Many Experiment Stations have
rondui -d i'j.pi.rlments to determine
tie' of removing suckers on
c orr and not a single one liss re-
poi <1 practicable results from this
prai-tice. Sometlmps the yields are
slightly increased when the suckers
are removed, but the cost of remov-
ing them is greater than the value
of the increased yield. As to pre-
vt-r.tion. the only thing that can be
< on< is to secure a variety with a
less tendency to sucRer and to plant
ftomcivhat thicker. It Is true that
iwuiie varieties sucker much worse
than others and also that corn will
produce mo'« suckers when planted
thin, and especially when It Is on very
ri< h soil. I would advise that you
•va'cli not only your own Held this
futJiiner, h it also some of tb^ Ilelds
in your neighborhood and determine
which \arlrties sticker the most under
local conditions and estimate the
, tiilckn":« of planting. This last fac-
lor -hould be given etpeclnl cotlBld-
cri.tlon as to the rlehnes. of the soil
and whether it Is botuun or upland.

flat >oti ' in determine very nearly
the proper rat* of ceding on your

prevented and Is more or le.s depend-
ent upon seasonal conditions.—O. O.
