"We !o ot consider that there is any
partlcu'a - danger in feeding cotton seed
meal in limited quantities, but there is
a very universal opinion thst it is bet

later months of gestation lest it might
have a tendencv to nroduoc nhortinn.
Wc are not as much afraid of this
good many are. because it ha been
damonstrated in innumerable instances
that cows fed cotton seed meal up to
the time of freshening have bad no
trouble. However, in deference to this
almost universal sentiment we hesitate
to advise the use of cotton seed meal
after five or six months of gestation.
We have therefore specified oil meal

Grain nntl Paiturc.
There Is a difference of opinion re
garding the economy of feeding grain
while cows are on pasture. There Is
no doubt that a cow will produce
more milk if fed grain while on pas-;
i.uiu, auu 11. a large yieiu is 01 more im-
portance than economy of production :
grain should surely be fed. Where a
small amount of grain Is fed corn is weH
adapted, as it will not unbalance the !
ration; if large amounts' of grain are 1
lea. other grains, such as bran, gluten i
meal, oats or cotton seed meal, should
' form part of the ration. Experiments
at Cornell covering four years made
with cows on pasture which supplied
an abundance of nutritious grain
showed that while the grain fed In
creased the milk yield it was not
economical to produce it In tnat way.
Corn u a Supplement.
While pasturage Is good and abun
dant the cow Is about as well provided
for as she can be. Unfortunately the
season of abundant pasturage is abort
and this shortage Is often the critical
time of the year for the dairy cow. She
must be carried over if with berjhllk
flow undiminished or she will not do
her best, as no amount offood win
bring back the yield of milk once lost.
The cheapest and most efficient feed
with 'which to .supplement pastures
during this period Is probably" com,

In determining what crops should be '

matter of flavor. This precludes the)
