STEERS FATTENED ON SILAGE
Interesting Feeding Toil With Shelled
Corn Conducted nt Missouri
At the Missouri experiment station'
one lot of steers was fed 15 pounds of
shelled com- per head per day along

2.0 pounds of clover hay, and 23
pounds of corn silage. Another lot re
ceived no shelled corn but a little
more of thu oil cake and clover nnd -10
pounds of sllngn per head per day.
Tho results wore that tho lot that re
ceived sl'ielled corn and half a feed of
silage charged $ir..W for 100 pounds

$10.00. Tho cost of feed per steer on
shelled corn was $r0.2.'t. while with the
