County Agents Notes
(Silo on Juniper Flat.
Mr. John Martin has just erect
ed the pioneer eilo en Juniper Elat,
and we predict that the farmers
there will all have them before
many years. In fact we hope
and expect to see the time when
one will be aide to see a silo from
avery hilltop in Wasco County,
It means more cattle, more sheep
more hogs, more turkeys, less
waste feed and Bitfllcient feed for
dry weather, an economic; way of
storing feed, In short it means
more stock, more prosperity and
a more permanent agriculture.
Mr. Martin ruined some good
wrn this year and from 16 to 20
icres will fill tho silo. The corn
.vas well eared out and as .-the
i,rni is 60 per cent of the value
if the insilage, this means very
loncentrated feed( Some of the
iorn has been nipped by frost but
oy putting in a great amount of
vater the result will be about as
jood a cure us ordinarily obtained.
One new "wrinkle" in silage
operations was tried by Mr. Mar
tin with astonishing success. He
nl his corn with a header, three
rows at a timo. Unit even beats
the com binder.
'There are now about adoasen
silos In Wasco County and farm
ers who have them are enthusias
tic over the results.
