The question of pasture on that

er Whether the pastor It to be In the
rotation or a permanent pasture muat
depend very much on general and even
local condition. In tb great West our
rainfall It not what It la on tb tea-
board and therefore th queatlon
changes considerably for thla reason
On th Jersey island the rainfall la
orb that tb permanent pasture la a j end. be equally beneficial to tha fol-
grtat success. The molature and (he : lowing cropt. untaaa tha clover la eat
sunshine stimulate growth to such an
extent that tb supply of herbage Is suf
Orient. The permanent paature is cer-
tainly to be preferred In coantrtea
where the growth of herbage Is rapid
and continuous. Rut In many coun-
tries the pasturage early fall to give
a good account of Itself and In such
raaea tolling haa to be depended on.
This is Illustrated tn parte of Europe
wher tolling hat become a permanent
feature on the farms To Illustrate:
Holland haa ten million cowt and four-
vn million acre of pasturage The
jersey islands havt tevea thousand
cowt and fourteen thousand acres of
pasturage a greater proportion of pas-
turage per cow than It the case with
In the United Bute permanent pas-

can be done In (bis line to tld over the
droufhs without going to the labor of

might be grown In many of the ttatee

plants uaed waa sorghum the Early
Amber variety It yields well even on
exhausted lands and Is more reslstent
to drouth and hot winds than Is corn.
It Is better to allow this plant to gat a
good start before pasturing. ay a
growth of Ave or six weeks. The plant
can be pastured tt any time before thlt
but It will not then yield the forage
that It will later Among other plante I
grown turceatfully for this purpose are i

Is a tura crop It will be batter than any-
thing elt. but on landt that are natur-

may prove of great value for forage. Of
