TWO YEARS. EXPERIENCE WITH SWEET CLOVER (Former's Advocate) In 191G I seeded tin acre to sweet clover, sowing ft with barley. It made only a fair catch and 1 must state that I do not thluk sweet clover should be seeded with a nurse crop. It made Us best growth after the barley was cut In the fall, but even then only reached a height ot about a foot and the plants were somewhat spindly. However, It'got'a good covering ql snow and came through the winter in good shape. _ It started growth ID the spring be- fore anything else and made by far uable.; Due hundred pounds of whey the best ffron'th of any hay crops in r was proved to 19.2 Ibs.'of j thU district. I this crop for hay but put a Wmportiry tenae around it and ran'live calves on it during the summer. 1.-do not know whether they, would ,bave preferred sraSg or other forage, but I do Lhat they ate the sweet clover and did well on it. Once any plants, how- over, got well up, the calves did not feed-on them, and there was a scat- tering of plants.went to seed. I fail plowed this field and worked it down well wjlh the hope thai tbe field would be reseeded from.this seed. I cannot say. as yet what success I will have. of; writing there'are some sweet7 clover- seeds coming' through the' ground, and I think tbat many more will come. Enough to seed the field at least. From my little field I cannot-eay. whether or not sweet clover wjlijbe a successful hay crop or .not-; .1 fain'inclined to think U will..
