THE GATE IS ALWAYS FREE was a report by agronomists and livestock men that showed the protein content of cornstalk silage was appreciably increased by high nitrogen fertilizer applica'- tions to the cornfield. This will have a bearing on the amount of protein supplement needed in various feeding programs. C. C. Culbertson ami Bruce Taylor, of Iowa State College, reported an experiment in which gilts following stilbeslrol-fed cattle farrowed an average of 9.30 pigs per litter and did not show detrimental effects from whatever stilbestrol they may have picked up from the droppings. Another experiment showed cornstalk silage with limited hay and a corn-mineral supplement makes a satisfactory low-cost wintering ration for beef cows. Dr. Wise Burroughs reported feeding 10 milligrams of stilbestrol per cow in the cornstalk wintering: ration seemed to benefit cow* which are not pregnant. N'o beneficial results followed feeding stilbestrol to pregnant cows, however, and one cow failed t'.> bear a live calf. Cornstalk silage, properly supplemented, also proved to be " a satisfactory winter feed for crowing heifer calves intrude'--.: foi slaughter. A big feature of the cattle feeders' day was the announcement of a new Iowa Economy Supplement. Cattle fed this supplement. Cattle fed this supplement made gains at 7 cents less per day per steer than those on the "Iowa 4" supplement announced last year. A. L. Neuman of the University of Illinois and Leruy Getting of Sanborn. Iowa, a farmer and cattle feeder, also presented report.-: on the use of oat silage and green corn in feeding cattle.
