James Withvcombe. director and a art
eulturlat at the Oregon Aa-rlcultural
college experiment atatlon, delivered an
addreaa on "Forage Cropa.", of , which
the following ia a synopsis:
u "Foracs planu are arrow n for two ape
clal purpoeea flret for the maintenance
of livestock, and aecond for their bene
ficial effect upon the eon, Doth chem
, Ically and phyalcally.
i : The Hat of forage planta ta larre and
affords the farmer a very wide range
for selection, but mainly a few will suf
fice for all practical needa in. western
Oregon. Common vetch (Vlcla- aatlva)
la unquesttonsbly the moat valuable for
, age plant when Ha wide range of
adaptability, lta value . aa stock food
and lta good ' ef efcta on ' anil fertility
, are considered. Thla - plant la eaally
grown, la very rich la protein, and high
ly palatable to all claaaea of atock.
1 "Red and alalke clover are atandard
forage crop and have a wide field of
, usefulness. The alalke la , eapeolally
valuable for the heavy clay aolla usu
ally dealgnated aa "white land.' Wher
ever the clovera will grow, they ahould
be Included ta the rotation cropa of ttye
Alfalfa' Heavy Tleld.
' "While climatic and soli eondltlona
may not be altogether favorable to al
falfa la the. Willamette valley, there la
. too question that thla plant la deatlned
to become , an Important factor In the
agriculture of thla section, . ; Eapeolally
will thla be evident on the dairy" farm
for the supply of green and aucoulent
feed during-the aumroer monthe. The
experiment , atatlon haa . been growing
thla forage 'for several tears for. the
purpose of soiling the dairy herd. . A
-field of , two -acres has been i cut It
times In five years without 'Irrigation.
This field 1 haa yielded : aoma seasons
nearly 10 tons of green feed per acre.
We began cutting thla field this season
on the first day of May, and the first
cutting is yielding at the rata of 13
tone of green feed. per acre, t ...
, Importance of Winter re dins'.
"For a general rotation system, ex
elusive of the grasses, the farmer will
make no mistake if he grows vetch,
clover ' and ' alfalfa for hay and for
green summer feed, and' thousand-head-.
d kale for winter succulent feed. .' To
provide against any possible failure In
the supply of kale from freezing ". It
would be well for the dairyman to either
grow some roots or put up aome alias
to be fed in case the kale la not avail
able. In an ordinary winter, however,
kale can be fed from the open feld, aa
this forage plant will eaally withstand a
severe freeze. . .
There la. unfortunately. . altogether
too little vetch and clover hay grown rn
- the average farm. If an abundance of
this hay vera grown and fed Judiciously
to all classes of livestock on the farm,
and especially to aheep, w ahould be
spared, the sickening spectacle '.: Of
starved and dead aheep all through this
matchless valley during the winter
months. X very large proportion of the
aimcujtiej or our livestock In the win
ter season la due to a want of proper
food and ahelter. If our calves, aheep
and goats were fed aome nicely cured
vetch, clover or alfalfa hay aarly 1n the
reason, when the grass becomes lnnu
trltloua, they would escape may dUl
cultlee anJ go through the winter in
: Parting1 Adviee o Parmera,
"My advice to the farmer la to-grow
vetch, clover, alfalfa, kale, eta Feed
these forage crops to well-bred , live'
stock' and the farm will not only be
come more remunerative, but the gr r-
Ing of these forsge crops will lay the
foundation for larger succeeding crops,
and thua accomplish what ahould 'be .he
ambition of every farmer to make Ms
farm steadily, richer rather than poorer,

methods of growing these forage cropa
