Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta THK U'THmtllHJK DAILY 11 KHALI) in -Miiie i'i, is THE BEST HAY for HORSES W. ROBINSON, KANSAS PERCHERONBREEDER, raises colts to an average of 1900 Ibs. at the age of 4 years, when they are ready for the sale yard, and feeds no hay, but alfalfa, which after a half century's experience he considers the best and most economical frame and muscle-forming food available His colts have alfalfa as their green feed, and his brood mares are given no other hay and very little grain. J. E. Wing, one of the big horsemen of Ohio, says: "There is no one thing as good for me work 'horse as alfalfa. He needs less grain, and has more life and spirit than when fed upon any other hay. For many years the writer has fed no other hay to his horses, driving horses, mares and foals. In parts of California alfalfa is the only hay fed to horses. Cresceus the great race horse was raised on it, and was fed no other hay even when on the racing circuit. Many of the transfer companies in the cities of California, Colorado and Kansas use alfalfa hay, claiming that it enables them to reduce their grain ration, while their horses are stronger and look better than with feed of corn and timothy. In tests made of alfalfa in comparison with timothy for horses at various State experimental stations, results have invariably been in favor of alfalfa. If, then, alfalfa gives better results than the death penalty, what must be said of it when compared with the grade of timothy and prairie hay available in Lethbridge at the pre- sent time Just you can save one-half the money you are now paying for hay by feeding alfalfa Prompt delivery in the city at a ton, or a ton at our farm, 21-2 miles south-east of city IMPERIAL DEVELOPMENT CO.
