Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...but it should be fed afterward. Mr. Morley: Do you believe ensilage will give as good results as dry corn stalks? Mr. Haughahl: I have not had much experience in that line. I do not believe there is much difference if fed in the proper proportion. Mr. Morley: What is the best method of stirring the milk; what system should we use for that? Mr. Haugdahl: The most common method is to use a small dipper with a long handle.
