'We" are but beginning to appreciate the value of clover silage in modern stock feeding. When properly made, clover silage is an excellent feed for nearly all classes of llveslock. Aside from its higher protein content, it has an advantage over corn silage In point of lower cost ot production. The yields, of clover compare favorably with those of corn when the land has, heen equally well prepared. Seldnm are fields seeded down to a purely clover mixlnre. Usually some of Iho standard grasses are added: On tho Agassiz farm we use a mixture containing red, alslkc arid while Dutch clover, alto Italian rye. .and orchard grass. This raalics good silage but The best yields of hsy can be ob- tained by seeding down on summer- fallow laud. Uut siiu-e most farm- ers lake oiV at lean two crops ot grain between fallows it may be ad- visable lo seed down with tiie second or in some instances the third crop. Tho number of weeds In the soil as well as the hay requirements of the fr.rm will he the deciding fjvlor In this regard. Seeding down on sum- merfallow has on this stallon given one-half tou per acre more than seed- ing with tho second crop. If the seoJ- ;ng can he done comparatively early in the season, sowing xvith a nurse crou will give more profit per acre alone. Tho tor the prepara- tion ot the land, while tlio only charges against the hay.crop should be the seed, rent of land and cost of harvest- ing. Barnyard manure plowed under previous tu seedlug-down has not only resulted In an Increased yield in tbq first crop but this increase has extend- ed into the succeeding years. In order to si-cure a catch It Is usually advisable in districts to drill tho -ccd rather sow U on tho surface, consequently in seed- ing down wlih. a nurse crop It Is best lo mix the grass seed with the grain aud it the grain is a little damp from the formalin treatment the grass and grain will feed more evenly through the drill. Tho following are some conclusions drawn from the results of the experi- ments made at Scott: Sown with n nurse crop or sown alone no hay crop cau he especled tho first year. Grasses will aid in controlling weeds but tiie weeds must he control- led until the grasses are.well started. The yields o{ the first hnp crop will depend on the method adopted in seed- ing down, but the yields iu the sue-1 years will depend on the mois. ture supply. Cultivated grasses have not usually yielded profilablo crops for more than three years. In breaking up grasses iu dry dis- tricts summer cultivation for one sea- son is usually required to sloro up suf- ficient moisture for the production of grain crops. Iu' introducing the grasses into the scheme of farm crops it is advisable lo make some systematic arrangement of crops and thus have a definite ro- tation. A rotation Including grasses results in less weeds, more soil fibre and less soil drifting. .Milton Tinllne, Sunt., Experimental Station, Scott, SasS.
