THE COW'S DAILY WORK. I — ." The: wise dairyman hold in mind that-a good dairy cow in full milk is expanding, as much energy as a horse at hard labour, and this without ces sation for many months. We have learned that the harder the horge works the more grain and the less roughage he must have, and the same is true for the cow. Except when I pasture is good, a portion of the i cow's provender should consist of | grain or rich concentrates, and if | she is yielding a large amount of ■ milk, - i.e., workiing extra hani, all I grain should be ground or crushed, j The dry cow doing little work can I subsist on less-carefnlly prepared | j food, and all or most may be in the j j form of roughage. In feetfmg, the aim | should be to supplj as much rough j age as the cow will readily, consume, j and to this add sufficient grain or ! concentrates to keep the digestible i matter ui) to the1 standard s*t h-ir t.ho I gcientists.
