Stock Feeding;, as Practiced in North
By F. B. Dancy, First Assistant Chemist N. G.
Tt was stated in Bulletin No. 64, the
Station sent out to farmers in all sec
tions of the State blank forms to be
rilled out, giving the amount of rations
fed to the various farm animals per
day. It was hoped, in this way, to ob
tain some insight into the question r.s
to whether, as a rule, our farmers were
under-feeding or over-feeding. The
effort was disappointing, in that, by
reason of the small percentage of an
swers received, and the ineagreness and
insufficiency we were not supplied with
sufficient data to arrive at tiny very
reliable conclusion on the subject. It
is dangerous to generalize from -too
small data. However, we shall pro
ceed to nve what information was de
rived in this way, and while cautioning
against placing too much significance
in the results of such meagre returns,
will say that we do not . onsidcr f hem
entirely without valuable teachings.
The first tiling, then, that we are
struck with in glancing over the re
turns is how pie-eminently Indian corn
is the tedder of the .North Carolina
farup-r. In thevast majority of the
rations corn fodder (more properly corn
stover see Bulletia 61, p. 1(3) is the
frame-work of the ration, and corn
( tne grain ns tne albuminoid rurnisiicr.
The ration is made up of so much corn
fodder, or the same amount of hay, or
of the same amount of a mixture of
the two. Most of the hay bought ant
used by the North Carolina farmer is
probably timothy. Many cut their
own mixed meadow hay. By reference
to Table II, Bulletin 04, it will be ob
served that while there is a difference
in the analyses of corn stover, timothy
hay, and mixed meadow hay, the differ
ence is not considerable. Look in
the digestible nutrients (or, as this pre
sents it more in a utitsuell, looking a
the nutritive ratios of the three), i
will be observed that corn stover is the
weaker of the three; but as the ordi
nary corn fodder of our North Caro
lina farmer is probably a fraction bet
ter food-stuff than the corn stover here
given, due to the absence generally o
the stalk which is included in t
fstovcr, there is no very material differ
ence in the three. In view of this
fact, therefore, and especially as they
arc in practice given interchangeably
its evidenced in the various rations re
ported in the return8, we will conside
them as cqaul, weight for weight, in
comDarin: and averaerinr tne various
Next to corn comes oats as the grain
fodder. Ia the great majority of the
returns, corn and oats are given inter
changeably, seeming to be generally
regarded as equal, pound for pound.
One or two instances were noticed
where, in replacing corn with oats in
the same ration, more oats were used
than corn. By referring to the table
alluded to above, it will be seen that
while corn is a trifle richer in digestible
albuminoids than oats (8.08 per cent,
for com and 8:46 percent for oats), this
this difference is not material, and two
grains may be regarded as practically
equal in their albuminoid-furnishing
power. In the analysis, corn shows
considerably more tligestible carbohy
drate equivalence (see Bullentin 64)
than oats, and their nutritive ratios
are, respectively, 1:8.9 and 1:6.6. To
day a pound of oats is worth a frac
tion more than a pound of corn, but
values vary according to supply and
demand, and both by analysis and by
experience it is quite right for practi
cal purposes to consider them as equal
fodders, pound for pound, and to use
them interchangeably in a ration.
They are also considered in comparing
and averaging the various rations fur
nished in the returns.
The plan adopted, then, is this: The
grain part of the ration is in each case
brought to a corn basis, and the frame
work of the ration is in each case
brought to a hay or a corf-fodder ba
sis, the latter two hving taken a equal.

converted into corn, weight for weight.
toe percentage or oiner-grains given
in the returns is so smsfll ?that thev
have v,een omitted. Where clover hay
or orchard grass were given in a ration
they have been converted into hay or
corn fodder by increasing the weights
in proportion, approximately to the
relati-ve value of the two fodders, as
shown by analysis. So, also, it being a
poorer fodder, has been converted into
hay by reducing the weight in the same
wav. By this means all the rations
urnished by the returns have been
converted to a basis of corn grain)
with hay or with corn fodder, and
hereby we are better enabled to com-
are them, and to average them. As
so many of the rations were already
given in corn and hay or fodder, the
n umber of such conversions were few.
The returns were fn'lert as to horses
of light, ordinary and heavy work, and
mules of ordinary and heavy work.
Oxen of ordinary or heavy work, and
fattening or at rest, were more scantily
reDorted. It is to be especial I v regret
ted that the returns could not have
nore complete as to milk cows, though
they were better reported thau oxen.
The return for sheep and hogs trere
so small that no comparison or average
of these will be attempted.
Before giving the review of the re
urns it may prove convenient to pre
sent, in tabular form, the comparison

The returns as to sheep and hogs
were too maegre for use. Hogs, for
fattening, seem to receive an average
daily ration of a fraction over 12 lb.
corn, the minimum report being 6 lbs.
and the maximum 40!
Now, when we endeavor to make a
ration on scientific principles, with
only corn and corn fodder, or, say, only
corii and hay, we are immediately con
fronted with a very important fact,
namely: that in making a ration with
these two fodders alone, there is a great
waste of carbohydrate equivalence.
The returns show how very common
almost universal a practice it is
with "farmers to feed a ration contain
ing only these two fodders. It is a
very bad economy, and there is un
doubtedly great waste. The lesson is,
that he should always have on hand, to
go in his ration, some fodder that has a
lurge percentage of albuminoids as
compared with its carbohydrate equiv
alence, so that with it he can increase
the percentage of albuminoids in his
n without increasing ins carrxmy-
e equivalence ia such tin alunning-
ly wasteful manner. The percentage
of albuminoids as compared with the
percentage of carbohydrates (the nu
tritive ratio, in other words,) in both
corn and hay (or stover), is eutirely
too small for these two fodders to ever
lie used alone in compounding a ration.
To illustrate: Suppose we try to com
pound a ration for an average horse
(1,000 lbs. weight) of light work,
using com and timothy hay alone.
-Table I, Bulletin 64, shows that such
a horse requires 1.50 lbs. digestible
albuminoids and 10.50 lbs. digestible
carbohydrate equivalence. Turn next
to Table II, and it will be seen that
timothy hay contains 3.67 per cent, of
albuminoids and 43.83 per cent, of car
bohydrate equivalence; and that corn
contains 8.58 per cent, of albuminoids
and 76.42 per cent, of carbohydrate
equivalence. Now. to begin the ration,
take, s y 20 lbs of hay; 20 lbs. of hay
will furnish 0.74 lbs. of digestible albu
minoids (20 lbs x .0367) and 8.77 lbs.
of digestible carbohydrate equivalence
(20 lbs. x .4383). Now, sufficient
corn must be taken to furnish enough
albuminoid, iu addition to that fur
nished by the hay, to foot up 1.50 lbs.,
or very near it, 1.50 lbs being as has
been shown, the daily need or albumi
noids on the part of a horse of 1,000
lbs. weight at light work. Nine lbs.
of com will do this, and no less. But
at the same time that it does this, it
supplies, also, an amount of carbohy
drate equivalence which, when added
to the carbohydrate equivalence fur
nished by the 20 lbs. ot hav in the ra
tion, is far in excess of the needs
(10.50 lbs.) of the horse. Try as we
may, by all sorts of combinations of
varying proportions of hay and corn,
we cannot avoid this. It is due to the
compositions of the fodders themsel
ves: their nutritive ratios are too small,
and we eannot alter such a result, un-
ess we could alter the composition of
the fodders themselves. This is, of.
course, impossible, bnt it is quite possi
ble to effect the same result in another
way. That is, by adding, in proper
quantities, some other fodder having a
high nutritive ratio; or having a large
percentage of albuminoids as compared
with its percentage of carbohydrate

2. 1 7
See what a
great loss of carbohy
drate equivalence there occurrs when
they are added in sufficient quantities
to bring the albuminoids up to the re
quirements of the the standaid. In
the third case that of the horse of
heavy work it will be observed that
the 20 lbs. of corn alone furnished
enough carbohydrate equivalence, and
therefore the entire carbohydate
eqivaleiice of the hay is wasted. Be
sides this, the above ration is objec
tionable on account of the bulk of
food given to supply the proper
amount of nutrients. From 20 to 25
pounds of hay is sufficient for a horse's
daily ration. More than this is too
much bulk, and the horse will most
likely refuse it.
Now, see how, by calling in the ser
vices of a little cotton-seed meal, or
other concentrated food, the situation
is relieved. It is not proposed here to
enter into a discussion ot the advisa
bility of feeding cotton-seed meal to a
horse. We use it in making this ra
tion to illustrate the principle sought
be elucidated, namely, the uecessity of
incorporating some concentrated fod
der in the ration having n hifch en
tent of albuminoids, with a compara
tively low content of carbohydrate
equivalence. We invite the opinions
of farmers based on their experience, as
to the use of cotton-seed meal, in con
nection with corn and hay or corn fod
der, lor horses. No objection to it is
apparent theoretically. Turn to the
analysis of cotton-seed meal. Take ra
tion': above (horse of heavy work),
for it needs bettering more than either
of the others, change the proportions
somewhat, bring in some cotton seed
meal, and the following ration is
21 lbs hay furnishes o.77 lbs
5 lbs corn furnishes o. lbs.
4,yiUheolton seed meal furnishes 1.61 lbs.
i vs: l s.
2. so lbs.
Now, what is the money value of
this waste of carbohydrate equivalence,
provided the ration can be fed? Com
is worth,- in the Raleigh mar
ket to-day (September), about 60 cents
per bushel, oats 37 cents, cotton seed
meal $21 per ton, and timothy hay
$17 per ton. Or, all iu tons and

is the caibolrvdrate equivalence wasted

ty per cent, of the cost of the first ra
tion is saved hv using the second!
Is not the lesson very clear? Do
not the fanners see that if they use a
greater variety of fodders iu their ra
tions, instead of corn and hav only, or
com and fodder only, as is the practice
now, that a great waste of food mate
rial will lx? avoided? If they can be
brought to see this, the aim of this ar

horses of light, ordinary and heavy
work were formed, using only com and
hay or fodder, any one who desires to
compare them with the rations actual
ly giveu in the returns, can form thera
for mules, oxen, cows, &c. But not
much is to be learned from the ucom
parison of such rations. The great
lesson sought to he emphasized is, that
we must look to a greater diversity for
food-stuffs in our barns, and wean our
selves from the old-time habit of feed
ing a ration of only corn and hay or
fodder. In this view of the matter,
and as long as this practice continues,
the fanners of North Carolina may
surely be said to be over-feeding. As
far as can be judged by the returns,
looking at the actual rations fed (corn
and hay only), it would seern that
while the corn ration is about adequate
in :dl cases, the amount of hay in the
ration is uniformly low.
fin practice it will be found that the
horse will hardly eat such a large ration.

Unsolicited and unexpected on my
part, I have been elected by the exec
utive committee of the "Confederate
Veterans' Association" of North Car
olina an agent to make a canvass of the
State in behalf of a "Soldiers' Home."
Now, I am aware that I have under
taken a big job.
I want your endorsement; I want
your sympathy; I want a small amount
of your means. 1 hope no one will
say it is not convenient for me to give
now." If we are not .villiug to make
some sacrifice, if not willing to sacrifice
some luxury for this cause, but must
wait until it is convenient to give the
aid, then let the cry at once be made

himself in a wilderness of detail. The

with other countries is accompanied
with no definite recommendations of
importance, and brings no disclosures
that have not been anticipated in the
record of current events. As an indi

strength. It is only notable for tim
