Inasmuch' aa the alio la a new thing
in this part of the country, and wholly
in experiment with me aa to lta feed-
ing value for beef cattle, I am dally
uked the question, "what do you
think of 'silage?' "
After having fed this feed for more
than three months. It appears to me
chat ensilage is the cheapest and best
roughage for beef cattle that I have
A drove of 135 head of good native
cattle were placed in the feed lot on
September 10, weighing an average of
1,065 pounds. At the end of 30 days
they were weighed and showed an
average weight of 1,221 pounds—a
gain of 156 pounds per head. The
cattle, of course, were weighed Into
the lot on a good shrink, and at the
end of thirty days were "full as ticks"
when weighed, so that the "fill" rep-
resented a good part of the gain.
Again on November 9 these cattle
were weighed and showed an average
of 1,291 pounds, This hardly looked
satisfactory to me, though the "fill'
former weight was taken. On the
whole, the first sixty days showed a
gain of 226 pounds per head. This
would give an actual gain in flesh of
three pounds per head for each day's
feeding, and still leaves forty-Mx
pounds to cover shrinkage at the time
the cattle were weighed into the feed
lot. If this is correct, the cattle have
done fully as well, or better, than
any I have ever fed.
One of the great advantages in feed-
ing ensilage is that it makes an easy
task to get cattle on full feed of grain.
When the first feed of ensilage was
placed In the feed troughs and the cat-
tle turned in, to my surprise every
steer went right up and commenced
eating. There was no learning hoi*
about it, and two tons of ensilage
daily was consumed without the slight-
est ill effects to any animal In the
lot. About a ton of hay to the whole
bunch was fed dally In addition, and
day by day the corn ration was in-
creased and the ensilage and alfalfa
hay decreased, until at the end of
about two weeks I found we were
feeding about a ton of ensilage, about
five or six hundred pounds of hay
and 60 bushels of corn dally. In ad*
dition to this 40b pounds of cotton
Beed meal was added dally by Sprinkl-
ing it over the ensilage, and at this
writing, after a 73 days feeding, I find
that these cattle are consuming dally
tor each animal, 23 pounds of shelled
corn, 16 pounds of ensilage, 3 pounds
of cotton seed meal and about 3 pounds
of first cutting alfalfa hay, and they
do not seem to care much for the hay,
Here we have a ration of about 44
pounds of rich feed for each animal
daily, and they clean up everything
readily except the nice bright alfalfa
hay. In former years 1 have fed
ton of alfalfa dally for such cattle,
while now with ensilage 136 cattle
will only eat four or five hundred
pounds a day, and don't care much for
It at that. I believe I am safe In
saying ensilage Is a half cheaper than
alfalfa hay for roughage and equally
as good, or better.
Supreme Court's Little Suits Make Big Problems
WASHINGTON.—From small begin-
nings have arisen soma of the
