Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... these findings and shew that alfalfa hay is nearly equal te wheat bran, ten fe-1' t0'n, as a feecl for farm aniniiials. Wve are justified, therefore, in inalaing ee111.pa.risen-s 011 basis of the appr0Xi1n, a.te figures given, which would suggest that Wheat bran may be partly replaced in feed ration-s by feeding about ten per cent n10-re alfalfa hay than the an1eu11t of bran to be re1pl.aeed. "Te shall refer to seine experirneiits in this line that will give seine specific inferniatien to the nutritive effect and relative eeeireniy cf these two feeds. In e=Xpe1i1ne11.ts cemlue-t-ed during five years at the New Jersey Eixperinient St-atieii they ebta.ined an average yield of 19'-M, tens 0-f-green alfalfa. f rem an acre 0-f land, per year, l1'lr, -luding the first year, and when cured into hay this made 4.8 tens per acre, cestiiig on the average $5.50 per ten. If We figure that llIl'Z1ll is werth ten per cent mere tlian alfalfa, ten for ten, this would mean that a sa.''i11g of ever fifty per cent might be efl'ected by repilaeing bran liy alfalfa hay in the rations fed le dairy cc-ws.
