This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1910 edition. Excerpt: ...caring for my corn crop, that is, husking, cribbing, stacking fodder, etc. I will also state that my cows came out in the Spring looking much better for having been fed on ensilage. I will also add that it took 12 acres of my corn crop to fill my silo in 1906, whereas, in 1909 it took but 5% acres to fill it. This shows what thesilo and cows are doing for the soil. Although the mercury here registered 8 degrees below zero in January the ensilage around the walls of my wood silo was never frozen so much but what I could easily dress it off with my six tined fork. I visited a neighbor who has a cement block silo and looking into it saw the ensilage was frozen all around the outer edge next to the blocks from 12 to 14 inches and the tenant told me the only way he could loosen it was by the use of a grubbing hoe. If any one doubts this I can furnish the man's name to a sworn statement. Give me a wood silo every time. The man who is trying to farm without a silo is behind the times about as far as the man who cradles his wheat instead of cutting it with a binder, or flails instead of threshes. Ensilage is even better, if possible, for sheep than cows. I want another silo, --if I put one up it will be a full length stave Indiana silo. Yours very truly, E. E. SHAMAN. Centerburg, Ohio. POOR CORN PUT IN SILO GOE_S AS FAR AS GOOD CORN FED DRY. INDIANA SILo Co., ANDERSON, IND. Gentlemen: --Your letter received, asking testimony on the Indiana Silo. I will say this, that if I would have known ten years ago what I know now I should have-had one then. I have one silo from the Indiana Silo Co. and consider it the most profitable investment a man could make. (1) Silage comes the nearest to nature's food of anything one can have for more
