The Manure

Loading

THE MANURE on this farm is usually applied to the corn crop. Corn averages 50 bushels per acre; oats 50; wheat 20; hay about 2 tons to the acre. Some 50 acres of hay are cut each year. A 100-ton silo is filled each year and about 40 acres of corn cut for fodder. The blue grass pasture is grazed off during the early part of the season but usually sufficient stock is sold off so that it is given com parative rest during the summer time. The pasture accumulates so much fer tility that it is occasionally broken up and cropped.
