The work of testing grasses and other forage plants at Highmore during the season of 1903 was carried on by Mr. Sylvester Balz under the direction of Professor De Alton Saunders. The following report of the work has been prepared from the data furnished by Mr. Balz at the close of the season's work. Professor Saunders severed his connection with the South Dakota Agricultural College in October, 1903. There being more land at the station than necessary to carry on the tests of forage plants, a part of it was used by Professor Chilcott and if Mr.Cole in testing macaroni wheats and other grains in co-operation with the United States Department of Agriculture. Their report forms the latter part of this bulletin.
