An increased interest is being I thu'.vn in sunflov-'ers for eii-iilage j purpose by farmers iu districts where com lias not proven a success. So far. liowevcr, liltlo attempt has been to grow these plants in i :i large way on this side of .the line. Jainvs am! his neighbor, i Leo J. Krauslions, of Dublin, how- ever, have not only tried this new j fodder iu nn experimental way. but I last season were so satisfied with the I results that their two silos were [filled with nothing else. i "From my own experience and that of says Mr. He- Inner. "1 am satisfied that sunflowers are just as satisfactory as corn, and in some localities, where the' latter plant cannot be grmvji. sunflowers I will make a good substitute.'" This enterprising farmer grow five acres of Mammoth liusshm sun- flowers last seasoti. choosing this particular variety on account of its rust-resisting qualities. The crop was harvested fully ten days earlier than corn grown for the same pur- pose. No trouble was found in cut- ting it, either with the binder filling, despite the tact that some, of I the stalks were over three inches in I diameter. From this crop Mr. Delaney was (able to fill his 1! by 36 silo to the (depth of seventeen- feet. Only one foot .was lost by settling, lie esti- mates that this amount ofsilage fully eqtialled In weight a full silo of corn. The great weight at Ihe sunflower fodder makes tr.tmping iu the silo unnecessary, while -the wastage amounts to less than four Inches. The coat ot seed per ton of. ensilage, is less than corn, while the statements of Mr. Delaney prove that the labor of handling this new crop is consider- ably less lhan that required to ensill its principal rival. In feeding quali- ties sunhower ensilage is said to be fully coual lo oilier plants stored in a similar way as far as beef or dairy cattle are concerned. Corral, no pasture 4 -I.S'3 Sweet Clover___ 4 5.6S Of the cereal crops tested oats have provided the most pasture per acre, or in other words have carried fully Ibs. more pork per acre thau bar-' ley. Depending on the season, the pas- ture capacity on the various, crops tried out has ranged from 1300 to 3973' Ibs. of live hogs per acre. The ease'1 with which n pasture of oats or bar- ley can bo established makes lliem particularly weil suited lo the farmer who wishes pasture this season. Mix- tures of wheat, oats anil barley, equal parts, have also given splendid results, although wheat might well he omit- ted. Rape .sown broadcast a'nd in drills has been used with excellent results. Seeding In (Iritis Is tti be recommend- ed, for although n little coarser plants result. Die hogs work between the rous and do uot waste much tif the pasture. There is one drawback lo tits use of Ibis pasture which should hei mentioned. If the hogs are allowed In it when it is wet and high enough1 so the drops from the leaves wet' the young pigs' backs, scales or sun- scald is veiy likuly lo result. This be largely overcome by using two. pastures, such.ns oats and rape, and: allowing hogs to use the rape block only when it is dry.
