Weed and grass seeds were largely
responsible for the poor showing made
by the chopped hay lots. The same
quality of hay was used in the chopped
lots as in the long hay lots; conse
quently they both contained the same
amount of foreign material. In all
chopped hay lots where the lambs could
not pick over the hay as well, the seeds
would lodge in the lower lip of the lamb
and cause ulcers, thus interfering with
the lamb’s feeding. The mouths of the
lambs on chopped hay had to be cleaned
out once a week.
The shorn lambs, fed barley and
chopped vetch and oat hay, made a
slightly better gain than unshorn lambs
on the same ration but not enough to

A fter 70 days’ feeding it was evident
that the lots being fed oat and vetch
hay were not making satisfactory
gains. One of the lots was divided in
half. One half was fed molasses mixed
with the hay and the other half was
fed kale in addition to the feed already
being fed. The molasses and the kale
caused no increase in the gain per head
Alfalfa fed lambs made a fair profit

period, though Nelson believes th at a
