IP"' Preserves and Improves Feed Value of Grass and legumes Giant silage is one ol your cheapest lourcos ol feed. At Purdue University, steer calves (aligned on grass silage and 3'/2 Ibs. ol supplement gained 2 Ibs. a day at a cost ol only 18c a Ib. Ample reason why feeders everywhere are turn* ing to silage as a low-cost source ol feed. And one ol the best ways to make good silage) Is with SWEET LASSY! The rich molasses sugars in this iarrous supplement quickly convert la lactic and acetic acids — thus assuring a good healthy fermentation. And SWEET LASSY gives silage such an appetizing flavor and aroma c attfe and other livestock can't resist it. SWEET LASSY la made in handy pellet form under an exclusive) patented process. You car) blow it right in with roughage or spread it bv hand. NO OTHER SUPPLEMENT IS EASIER TO USE. So plan now to turn vout grass and legumes to silage. Got the EXTflA FEEDING BENEFITS that_meaa bigger livestock profits.
