Velvet Beans


VELVET BEANS In Florida, Taliaferro tested the value of velvet beans in pods when fed with eowpea hay. The steers were allowed to have all the cowpea hay they would cat and received in addition 3 bushels of velvet beans in the pod daily The percentage of dressed weight was somewhat less than when cassava and cottonseed meal were used, and it appears that velvet beans alone, with cowpea hay as the roughage, are infe rior to rations in which cassava occu pies an important place.
