Taking The Bloat Out Of Alfalfa

Will Italian rye grass and red top clover be a success under irrigation

as cow pasture in this county, either separately or mixed with alfalfa?

To sow in bare spots in the alfalfa, would the rye grass prevent bloat?

Italian rye grass and red clover will make good pasturage under

irrigation and will make a fight with the alfalfa to the best of their

ability. The admixture of rye grass will reduce the danger from

bloating. Red clover will not have that effect, because red clover is a

pretty good bloater on its own account. This seems to be the function of

all the clovers according to the rankness of their growth at the time

that they are grazed.
