1. Our contrast of corn silage and
rield beets for miik production leads to
tiie following conclusions.
I. The feeding of bets to milk cows
has already increased the consumption
cf other foods and of total dry matter.
i. Beets have always produced an in
crease in the flow of milk and in the
total yie d of butter-fat. but this in
crease bas never been suflicient to
offset the additional consumption of
3. The cows have always shown a
greater average live weight while feed
ing on beets. A part of this increase '
was probably due to increased weight
of the contents of the digestive tract,
but a part seems, to have be en actual
4 Beets have not diminished the
amount of water drank, although fed
in such quantity as to increase the
watery contents cf the food by thirty
pounds per day

Poultry, a Market for Grain.
It ought to be plain enough, to farm
ers by this time that it is incumbent

' cpan them to find a market for the
gram proaucts of the farm so far as
possible in some other form than the
erain itself, because this course re-
, moves m the ag-Tete a vast quantity
' of that cereal from an active competi
tion with what farmers may have to
offer in its original form as a raw
procuct, as wheat, corn. etc. says
Nebraska Farmer. Under present and
past conditions of the wheat market
it would pay the farmer well to feed
largely from his supplies. It perhaps
