W. II. Freeman, a Dawsnn county
farmer, publishes the following In tho
I herein submit my oxperlonco in
tho growing of "Billion Dollar Grass"
which I think will bo of intorest to
many of your readers:
But first I will describe It. It is
very vigorous, grows rapidly, very
leafy, attains a height of 3 tk 5 foot.
Sowing season from May 15 to Juno 20
and has a reputation of making two
crops of hay, if tho llrst is cut ns soon
ns tho heads appoar.
I havo grown It two years, 1014 nnd
915, getting n gol;d crop both seasons
each of which were extremes ns ro
gard to moisture.
I harvested with a binder and
shocked tho same as grain. It cured
perfectly. It makes the most perfect
horse feed 1 havo ever fed. Horses do
as well on it alone as on tho best
prairie hay and grain, and It Booms
to agree with them In every way. My
horses will como In frcm tlio green
pasture and will stay and cat it as
long as there is any in tho feed rack.
As I havo only horses I cannot say
as to other classes of stock, but it is
claimed all stock relish it, and thrive
on its superior nourishment, even
moro than horses. If they will do as
well I know of no other hay its equal
not even alfalfa.
So far, I havo cut all mine as hay,
and noo for seed, but my neighbor
had four acres of seed crop last year
which threshed lout 35 bushels per
acre. Tho seed weighs about 50 pounds
to the bushel, and Is said to contain
ns much fat ns corn, and moro protoln.
I was llrst to try it In 1914. Thoro
were three of us who sent for seed In
1915 which dost us laid down hero 8
cents per pound. This year about ton
n this neighborhood win sow some
but since wo havo the homo grown
seed It will not cost moro than half
of what wo paid.
I consider it one of our coming hay
crops. Rich not oniy in name wnicu
rivals Rockefeller, yet moro generous
in its distribution of wealth.
