The object of this experiment was to determine the value for lambs of corn silage as a sole ration and the relative feeding value of shredded corn fodder and hay made from sweet clover, field peas and the yellow-flowered alfalfa to hay from upland prairie grass and common alfalfa when fed as roughage with the same kind of a grain ration. By the breaking up the prairie the stockmen will soon be deprived of one of the cheapest and best roughages in South Dakota.
