Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Tuesday, February 11, 1975 Research Station report: Feeding value of hybrid corn silage By DR. DAVE BOWDEN Animal Nutritionist Tillering and nontillering hybrid corns can produce silages with similar digestible nutrient contents in Southern Alber- ta. At the Lethbridge Research Station, we com- pared the feeding value of silages from these two types of corn for heavy- yearling feeder steers to prove this point. The silages were made from tillering and non- tillering hybrids harvested from the same field on the same dates. Urea and limestone, each at 10 pounds per ton of chopped corn, were added during ensiling.

Dry matter of the two silages had about the same crude protein content. Twenty four Hereford feeder steers, averaging 812 pounds when starting' on silage, were fed for 112 days and then slaughtered. Each steer was fed individually with as much silage as it could eat. A supplement of steamed, rolled barley was fed at two levels with each silage. Half of the steers receiv- ed steamed, rolled barley at 0.5 per cent of body weight with the silage for the entire 112-day period. Amounts of barley fed to each animal were adjusted to body weights every 28 days. At this level of barley feeding, average daily gains of the steers for 112 days was'1.7 pounds per day, the same for both silages. The other group of steers received silage without barley for the first 56 days. Then barley was fed at 0.25 per cent of body weight. increasing to one per cent of body weight after 84 days. Steers on silage without barley consumed less silage and gained less weight on nontillering corn than on tillering corn. However, when barley was fed with the silage, the steers on the nontiltering corn gained .3 pounds more. For the 112 day feeding period, daily gains in weight averaged 1.3 pounds per day for animals on each .of the silages. Twenty three of the steers produced carcasses Wally rises early to dispense coffee VANCOUVER (CP) Wally Wilson's Don't Argue'Cigar Stand is sandwiched into the 500 block of West Georgia in downtown Vancouver, sur- rounded by towering office buildings and banks. But Wally doesn't seem worried about being crowded. He is squeezed in even in his own small store; shelves lined with tobacco and potato chips, cookies, chocolate bars and soup, hot drinks and milk, lo- zenges, aspirin and chew- ing gum leave him a work- ing space of about two feet by six.

There was once a chain of Don't Argue Cigar Stands, explains Wally, with the stand he has managed for the previous 10 years the last cigar nook bearing the name. "Lots of old-timers still remember the slogan the stands argue, our tobacco's fresh." The morning is the busiest time of day for Wally.who arrives at the stand long before many of- fices workers have straggl- ed out of bed. He sets out stock, brews coffee and opens by a.m., hoping to attract some of the early-morning trade before the coffee shops open. During the day, it's a steady flow of'customers on coffee or lunch breaks, some greeting Wally, others quickly making their purchases and mov- ing on. Wally's stand has been broken into three times in the last nine years, despite the fact the till is always emptied at night. Even with the early- morning hours six days a week (Wally opens Satur- day even though most of- fices, his prime market, are he doesn't in- tend to retire when he comes of age in about four years. that graded either Al or A2. The remaining carcass graded Bl because of low fat cover. These results indicate that tillering and nontiller- ing hybrid corns recommended for Southern Alberta can produce silages of similar feeding values. However, the tillering hybrids grown in this area usually produce more dry per acre, thus the total yield of digestible nutrients per acre will usually be higher than for the nontillering hybrids.
