iFrench Silo Finds Favor
With West Texas Farmers
For Storing Up Feedstuff
ABILENE. (UP).—Long heralded
, salvation for the feeding situa-
tion in dry years, the trench silo is
(being forged into use by West Tex-
Necessarily, the size of the silo
depends on the amount of livestock
be fed. The long trenches in
jrhich green feed is preserved inde-
dtely range from those for the
herd supplying the needs of the
farmer, to those for large
airies and stock farms.
Fanners, in figuring the cross
sction of the trench, multiply the
humber of animals to be fed by
the pounds of ensilage to be fed
each day. If 12 cattle are to be fed
30 pounds of ensilage per day, then
360 pounds will be needed each day.
Experts state that ensilage will
weigh in the neighborhood of 30
pounds per cubic foot. On this basis,
the farmer would feed 12 cubic feet
of green stuff each day. Assuming
that a cross section four lijctoes
thick will be fed each day ,the
farmer then constructs a trench
with a depth and width measure-
ment of 36 square feet.
The trench silo has long been
sounded by county agents and vo-
cational agriculture teachers as the
safest method of assuring green
feed the year around.
The trench method is a cheap
way of storing feed, keeps it inde-
finitely, increases the food value
and makes it possible to preserve
feed that otherwise would hardly
be worth harvesting, fanners claim.
Corn is generally considered in
this area as the most desirable crop
for ensilage from the quality stand-
point; the grain sorghums, such as
kafir, milo, feterita, and hegarl, are
almost as much in favor as in com.
Sweet sorghums are good especially
for dairy cattle and stock cattle,
but not so good for other livestock.
Because ensilage is a succulent,
bulky, palatable and cheap feed and
is the best known substitute for
green pasture, it is particularly de-
sirable in a ration for dairy cattle.
In beef cattle, ifWJtening rations,
silage has proved to be very satis-
