(iood hay is not only the Imnisof fatten
ing, if you feed in winter, but all you
need for wintering stock which is in good
onler in the fall. A nkillful farmer can
make healthy cattle grow all winter by
taxing his ingenuity to sen how much good
hay he can manage to get them to eat;
und this is tho great secret in keeping
stock. He who uttempts tho experiment,
in very many do, of trying to winter cat
tle on the len.-!t possible quantity of hay,
will find himself in tho end in very much
