P. LaMuster, head of the dairy division. It i- best to g*t the seed now and he ready to plant the fir-t good season after the middle of September, on land near the barn', making grazing possible from November to April. A good mixture to sow is oats, rye, and barley', ©ooh one basbel per acre, together with 20 fwiund- of vetch. Plant at least one-half acre of th:- grazing crop for each milking cow. And feed like this which the cow t an harvest for he? < lf Mea cheap feel}, and stimulate* milk production during the winter month-far more th n the true f• •• • .• \n! ue of the grasses becall-e of is • si • culent nature. D<in't let this grazing mixture get more than five or six inches h gh before it is grazed, advises Mr. La Mater. If it -'arts t*> head in th" fall because of failure to graze it,, much of the feed value will be Ir-t due to winter killing. The cow- may be taken "AT this pasture late in March and you can get a good hay crop in May. I A tu r ust a. Ga. k« )f vj IL*, , I ag late Bon um Judge Webb past two week 1 Mage licenses: Wm. R.
