The object of the experiment was to ascertain the value of different forage crops for the Iamb in the fall of the year when the pasture grasses become partially dried and the ewes lessen in their feed for the Iamb. The condition of the Iamb at marketing time is governed chiefly by the kind of feed it and its dam have received since birth of lamb, and anything that can be done to increase its growth and condition must be considered an advantage. We consider it a good practice to wean the spring Iamb in early fall when pastures begin to dry up so the ewe will have time to "build up" before cold weather.
