Winter Feed For Sheep





What would be the best to sow for sheep pasture - barley, oats, rye, vetch

or rape?



Of the grains, rye is usually found to be best for quick winter growth,

and rye and vetches sown together are very satisfactory, because the rye

holds the vetches up so that the whole growth can be more successfully

handled with the mower, and if grown that way and fed green in a corral,

a very large amount of good feed can be secured. Sufficient experiments

have not yet been made with rape to fully demonstrate its value. Even if

it grew well, it would be inferior in nutritive value to vetches and

rye.
