Get The Most Out Of
Your Damaged Corn Crop
Tho continued drouth and warm
weather has seriously damaged the
corn crop iu many parts of the state,
taccordlng to Prof. C. W. Pugsley, head
of the HxtOnsion Department of the
State University Under present con
ditlons, much of the corn can be saved
for feeding If proper attention is given
and the corn Is not neglected.
Reportf which have come to the In
tension Department indicate that the
damaged sections are iu every part of
tlie state though the southern part Is
more airecteil than other sections.
Ueipiests havo been pouring in to
I'ugsley, asking suggestions as to tlio
best method of getting the most out
of tlio corn crop.
Realizing that tlie condition is gen
eral, I'ugsley has requested tho Bureau
of Publicity to co-operate with tlio In
tension Department and tlie news
papers of the state iu dis.'.einlnating
news relative to the condition. "Ne
braska Is not iill"ectod as much as other
states" suys Professor Pugs ley.
"However, that does not prevent us
getting as much out of tlio corn crop
as is possible, (iomiriilly speaking,
Nebraska has brim fortunate in her
crops this year, especially small grain.
Hut the corn crop has been all'ected
and now it is up to ns to get all wo
can out of tho crop.
Most of tho queries are "How is it
I possible to got the most feed out of
' the corn crop?" Hy properly hand
' ling it is often easy to got from many
' Holds snulclcut feed to carry the stock
on tlie farm through winter.
I'ugsley suggests three wnys. One
way is to lot the corn plant stand iu
tlio Hold and tbon pasturing In tho
winter. I'ugsley characterizes this as
the poorest method as often times
J much of tlie drled-up portions will
blow away, little feeding value re
maining. Another and better method Is to
make fodder of the corn by cutting at
the proper time. Iu tills way it is
possible to save much feed from a Held
which would otherwise yield very
little. Many prefer to shred the corn,
the claim being that this enhances
the feeding value of the yield. Pro
fessor Lee of the Department, says the
best method is to put as much corn as
possible Into a 'silo. Prof. Lee is
authotity for the statement that one
half more cattle can be wintered on
any field of corn if that corn is put In
to a silo instead of being cut for fod
der. "If you have a silo, by all means fill
it," is the advice from the Extension
Department. In this emergency, it is
uot suggested that expensive silos be
erected. However, Professor Chase of
the University says a silo may be built
for the purpose of saving injured corn
by n small outlay of money. Chase
states that a woodcu silo holding 80
tons, may be built for about 8120, and
will last soveral years. Also that the
same sized silo may be built in tlio
ground at a cost of from $10 to J-j.
Now is tlio time to get tlie most out
of the corn d'op. Iu somo sections,
now Is the time to put tlie corn iu silo
or out it for fodder. In other sections,
it can lie loft for sovoral weoks, unless
weather conditions become very
As long as the corn is growing fairly
well, it is bettor to leave it in tlio Held,
but iu case hot, dry weather continues
and the corn burns, it is bettor to cut
it. for I'uitil. If a silo is to be built, no
time is to bo lost.
A bulletin on the value of fodder
and silage for feeding nnrposos anil
another on the method of building In
expensive silos, havo beon prepared
by tlio Intension Department. Hither
or botli of thtso may bo had froo of
cost by writ Ing either the Bureau of
Publicity, Omaha, or the Hxtenston
Uopuitmci.t, Mate Farm, Lincoln.
Funnels are urged to save as much
of tho crop as possible. Hither cut It
for fodder or put It iu a silo. Do tho
one you prefer.
