kale can be fed from the open feld, as
this forage plant will easily withstand a

"My advice to the farmer la to. grow
vetch, clover, alfalfa, kale, etc. reed
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 forage crops will lay the
foundation for larger succeeding crops,
and thus accomplish what should be .he

farm steadily, richer rather than poorer.
