Abstract

Oaten hay, or oats conserved in the form of silage, is always a valuable insurance against lean periods on the dairy farm—but if that hay or silage is made from a mixture of oats and vetches, it will be infinitely more valuable. The vetches give a much greater bulk of feed and, being legumes, they boost the protein content of the fodder, so that it cuts down the need for costly supplementary feeding.
