An Argument Against the Silo.
We have a communication from a
Nebraska subscriber which criticises
somewhat severely what he terms,
"The Silo Campaign." He calls at
tention to the fact that the conversion
of corn into ensilage in no wise in
creases its feeding value, whereas the
same corn placed in the shock and
sensibly fed out maintains practically
its full worth for feeding purposes.
He says that a neighbor used ensilage
last winter for his herd of dairy cows
and although he fed his cows practi
cally all the ensilage and hay they
would eat they did not give as good
results as they formerly did on corn
fodder, hay and grain. This sup
scriber states that the average man
is led to believe that the feeding of
ensilage does away with the necessity
of using grain, while as a matter of
fact calls attention to the urgent ne
cessity of using some of the high
priced concentrates in connection with
It is true that there has been con
siderable of a campaign waged dur
ing the last year or two in favor of
the 'silo. The experiment stations
have been leaders in this campaign be
cause practically every station in the
grain belt has issued or.e or more bul
letins in which information is given
on types of silos and instruction im
parted in regard to their erection.
The agricultural press has also been
most enthusiastic about endorsing the
silo proposition and it is unfortunate
if in the enthusiasm ol the campaign
farmers have been misled as to the
value of ensilage. We can only speak
for ourselvles when we say that we
have never indicated that ensilage v-'as
anything but a one-sided ration. We
have repeatedly stated that because
of its palatability and therefore its
ease of digestibility, farm animals
could be carried through the winter
in a more thrifty condition on ensilage
alone than would be the case if fed
corn in any other form. This is not
equivalent, however, to saying that
concentrates should not be used in
connection with this highly-prized
food. As a matter of fact when used
for dairy cows or for fattening cattle it
is absolutely necessary that a balance
be struck by the use of such foods as
bran, oil meal or cotton seed meal.
We can imagine many a man being
disgusted with ensilage before grass
comes another year because of its fail
ure to greatly increase the production
of a dairy herd or tomterially increase
the economy of grains in fattening
cattle. Wherever this complaint is
made, however, one may rest assured
that the oor results have been due
to the fact that little or no attempt
has been made to sensibly use concen
trates. There is absolutely no excuse
for any man going to the expense of
building a silo and cutting up his corn
if he is going to turn around and feed
it to cows in such a way that they
will produce 150 or 200 pounds of
butter annually. Men who own silos
cannot afford to handle cows unless
they can produce at last 250 pounds
of butter a year and this can be done
only when fairly good cows are kept
and when they are fed a judiciously
The same general principle will hold
true in the case of those who expect
to use ensilage for beef-making pur
poses. While ensilage may be more
nearly adapted to this purose than
for use as a food for dairy cows with
out any adjunct it is nevertheless true
that for the purpose of making eco
nomical gains some form of food rich
in protein is an absolute essenital.
It goes without saying that whether
in dairying or in beef making the man
who does not have fairly good stock
to work on is going to be disapointed
with his results and he will regret the
investment he has made in a silo
and will moum over the useless labor
that has been expended in filling it.
In short, the silo fittingly typifies the
new agriculture, a form of equipment
as much out of place where old fash
ioned stock is handled as a silk hat in
company with barnyard boots. The
of gains was
in iyuo-u mis coomparison was
again made and half of all the corn
fed was attached to the stalk. Here
cost of production was practically the
samt. again the being only ten cents
per hundred less for snapped corn.
The feeding of corn on the stalk in
the morning with shelled corn and alf
alfa hay at night is providing to be a
very economical system of beef pro
duction, and it may be continued
throughout the entire period by stack
ing the bundles near the feed yards
for use in late winter. For such pur
poses corn which has been drilled a
little theker than usual is best because
the ears are somewhat smaller, though
it should not be planted so thickly that
the yield of corn will be reduced. By
feeding corn fodder we utilize the
stalk and yet are put to no extra la
bor in husking it. In fact, corn can
be cut with a harvester and put in the
shock cheaper than it can be picked
and cribbed, in as much as three men
with a team and harvester can cut and
shock seven acres per day. Records
from the farm department of this ex
periment station show that it costs
$1. 18 per acre to cut and shock corn,
which figure does not allow for the
wear and tear on the machine. Three
cents per bushel would cover the cost
of haresting corn with a machine and
putting it in shocks in which form it
may be fed direct to the cattle.
There is no question in our minds
but what many of our stockmen subs
cribers have tried out this plan and
hav found it to be satisfactory. We
same in both lots, affected until a much longer time had
elapsed. This period of immunity
varied with individual cows from less
than a month to more than a year.
There was finally reached a condition
of low vitality in which a sudden and
complete breakdown occurred. This
stage was marked by loss of appetite,
a general haggard appearance, luster
less eyes, a rough coat, and a very rap
id decline in both live weight and
yield of milk. If salt was supplied at
this period recovery as rapid. In one
case potassium chlorid as given in
stead of common salt (sodum chlo
rid). Considerable of the potassisum
salt was eaten, though cows ordinarily
refuse to touch it, and recovery fol
lowed as quickly as when common salt
was supplied evidence that not the
lack of sodium but the lack of chlorin
was responsible for the troubles. The
breakdown due to the lack of salt,
usually occurred after calling when the
milk How was heavy, and generally
the cows giving the largest amount of
milk were the first to show distress.
Babcock points out that the amount
of salt required in the ration will vary
greatly in different localities. Soils
which contain large quantities of salt
doubtless produce feeding stutfs con
taining more salt than those poor in
this ingredient; and again the water
of streams and wells varies greatly
in its salt content. Those facts
doubtless account for the disagreement
among experimenters in different parts
of the world as to the importance and
value of salt. Cows in milk and
sheep show the greatest need of salt
have in mind one instance where an fattening cattle, horses, dry cows, and
stock cattle require less salt; and the
pig but a little". Hord's Dairyman.

100 acres of corn annually and this is
practically all fed out during the win
ter months to fattening steers. In
this case it is fed on the ground in
the pastures excepting only when in
the ground is soft and when it is cov
ered with snow. His reason for hand
ling it in this way Jis that it distri
butes the manure absolutely without
labor and he further believes that
the exercise obtained by cattle in pick
ing up their roughage and part of the
grain in this way actually contributes
to the making of gains." It goes
without saying that when it comes to
the matter of carrying steers for a
long feeding period there will be too
much waste too attempt to feed corn
fodder in this way through to the end.
As steers get fat and lazy they need
their food in concentrated form and if
fooder is used too extensively they
will not eat enough to make maximum
gains. On the other hand, during the
first three months of a feeding period

what extensively is entirely feasible
and practicable. The Iowa Homestead.
Effect of Exccssi vc consumption of
Corn Fodder for Fattening Steers.
Prof. H. R. Smith, of the Nebr
aska experiment station, has for a
number of years been accumulating
data on the various methods and plans
of fattening steers. In all his work
he has kept in mind two main factors,
namely, the cost of making gains and
ecnomy in the expenditure of labor.
He has obtained most satisfactory re
sults from the use of corn fodder (the
whole plant) when it is judiciously
used along with shelled corn and alf
alfa hay. Summarizing the results
of experiments conducted a few years
ago at the Nebraska station. Profes
sor Smith says :
"The objection that is usually rais
ed against the practice of cuttine and
shocking corn for feeding purposes is
the labor involved in husking it from
he shock. The fact that a great deal
of corn may be fed to cattle in the
stalk unhusked is entirely over looked.
In a 1905-06 experiment one lot often
two -year-old steers was fed corn fod
der for a period of twelve weeks in
comparison with the same amount of
snapped corn and stover fed another
lot. Two-thirds of all the corn given

possibility of salt causing abortion in
cows. They enclose a clipping on the
The article to which this inquirer
refers says in substance that salt in

animals and in some instances causes
abortion. We gather from the article

the animals became ravenously hungry

that animals deprived of salt for some
time or given it irregularly would suff

We have always been led to believe
that salt was necessary for all live
stock. Excessive consumption of salt
is apt to work injury, as it increases
the amount of water excreted in the
urine. It creates, what might be
termed an abnormal thirst and animals
are apt to drink too much water which
will injure their digestion and may
lead to other disturbances. When
animals are allowed free access to salt
at all times they will consume only
enough to meet the requirements of
their bodies. It is quite possible
that feeding salt to excess mierht
prove injurius to the breeding powers
of animals and even cause abortion,
but, if regularly fed in resonable
amounts, or, better still, if kept before
the animals at all times, we believe
that it is far more beneficial than in

The Profession For The Farm Boy.
We have been having a number of
letters lately from farm boys or their
parents, boys who have been raised on
good farms and presumably have
learned a great deal about farming
that can be learned nowhere else than
on the farm. They want to know
what profession they should chose, or
if they decide to remain on the farm
how they can best equip themselves
for the life of the farm.
Here as everywhere else much de
pends on th boy, and much on his
parents. If the boy has real farm
ing instincts and is fit to be a farmer,
we do not know any better profession
that he can choose than that of farm
ing, particularly so if his father is a
farmer and offers him a good oppor
tunity. The other professions are pretty
well filled. We have all the doctors
we want now, and a good many that
we don t want and would be a good
deal better off without. We have all
the lawyers we want, and a good
many whose room would be worth a
great deal than their company. There
is room., large room, for doctors who
will study how to keep well and not
merely to cure them when they are
ill; and there is large room for law
yers who will study how to keep peo
ple out of lawsuits rather than to en
courage them to get in order that
they may help them out. There is
room large room for men whose
parents have ordained them to the
ministry; in other words, who have
the spiritual, social and intellectual de
velopment that will fit them to point
out to men the way to live best in this
world and develop a Godlike character.
There is room for men who can con
duct big business in the lines laid
down in the sermon on the mount;
and there is room for farm boys who
can do this.
We know of no place, however,
that there is such large room as on
the farm for the boy who is fit to be
a farmer. Now as to preparation
for it: An agricultrual education is
valuable, provided the boy has enough
of the farrming instinct in him to
keep him from being switched ofT in
to something else; in other words.
who has the stamina to get an educa
tion is of inestimable value. A com
plete agricultural college education,
however is not absolutely necssary to
the farm boy, provided he has some
one to advise him as to what books
and papers to read in order that he
may get the help needed. We would
advise at least a year of two in an
agricultural college, in which he can
get in touch with other farm boys
who are like-minded. This will be

Now any bright, wide-awake farm
boy can get the substance of this on
the farm, if he will, and is given the

agricultural college, however, provid
ed is aim is single and he does not
allow himself to be diverted by other
things, and does not allow himself to
get into expensive habits nor to get
out out of the habits of work and
economy which belong to the farm.
They are really about the best part
of the farm education.
We are speaking now of the boy
who does not expect to go into any of
the semi-agricultural occupations, such
as teaching or editing or becoming an
expert in livestock judging, or things
of that sort, but of the boy whose
parents would like him to stay on the
farm and be with them in their old
age. For this sort of a boy there is
no better business than farming, no
business that requires a higher intel
ligence, more careful habits of study
and observation, or more executive
ability. It is not everybody whe -is
fit to be a farmer. Wallaces' Farmer.
