THEt1 GIVE IT AWAY
Apple Pulp at the: Cider FactoryIt. is
, as Good Cow Feed as Corn Silage.
At the cider factory, they give away
the pulp of apples, and the accounts
are that it is' excellent eoweed.
Prof T P Fowler, of the Agricul
tural College, State University of
California, says: '"Apple pumice
is very desirable food for milk cows
when it is intelligently fed." To
cows that have not been used to the
pumice as a part . of their ration,
but a small amount should at 'first
be. fed. .'.This may: be ; increased to
abbut 1 5 pounds daily.-; The .pulp
is a great addition .: to '. the N cow's
ration where she is fed" a rather
large portion of dry fbod. - It fur
nishes a change and a relish which
is always an - important" factor "m
feeding." .. J," .,-' -"' .5
' The Vermont experiment station
has made a series of experiments
covering several years! in the feed
ing of apple pumice, which , exper
iment s are. q uite imnortant arid
conclusive, - The puip t vyas found
to be almost if riot : quite equal in
feeding value to corn -silage. - No
undesirable results followed its use.
Cows fed on it. held no their milk
