Ret I had ald It. I am going to re
peat It. ' On land worth f 100 and
upward, aultahln for growing corn,
you can carry breeding cows through
the numrner cheaper on silage than
on blue graaa. Not many paaturea
will carry a cow and her calf on leaa
than one and a half acrea. But It
la entirely possible to get twelve and
one-half to twenty tona of allege from
one acre, and you can carry a cow
and calf during the auminer on two
pountla of clover hay ard thirty-five
pound; of altage per lay aa well aa
or better than on blue gran.
Thua you can keep a cow a year
and her calf all month on leaa than
a half acre of Milage If eventually
