Now the Cows Go to Grass
Another Month
                          I KNOW of no cheaper and easier way to lower feed
    By G. B. Mortimer    costs than by building an improved permanent pasture
    Wieco~nu College     that gives us another month of grazing. Pound for
pound,
    of Agrscture         an improved pasture is worth almost as much as linseed
                          meal, supplies costly protein at a much lower cost
than
                          grain, and gives the cows plenty of rich, green
feed.
                            Fertilizers, lime, and reseeding change many
worn-
                          out permanent pastures, into rich, profitable meadows
of
                          grass and clover. But the management of our improved
                          permanent pastures is also of great importance.
Let's give
                          them a square deal from start to finish and use
the fol-
                          lowing plan of management.
                             1. Keep your stock out of the pasture until
at
                               least May 20. Give the pasture a chance.
                             2. Out weeds before they go to seed. They take
                               both moisture and plant food from the pasture.
                             3. Drag your pasture early in the spring to
scat-
                               ter the season's droppings.
                             4. Keep your stock off the pasture during the
                               open winter and early spring when the ground
                               is spongy and plants are easily pulled out.
                            Here at the experiment station, this system of
manag-
                          ing pastures has given us very good returns. It
will help
                          you to cheaper feed.
