Not only may money loss be anticipated, but bovine health may be shattered and future usefulness be lessened as a result of high-pressure feeding." Prof. Hills states as a general conclusion (.51) that, when all the different factors are taken into consideration, from six to eight pounds of grain daily seem tne most advisable amounts to feed to mature cows, eight in years when grain is unusually cheap and six when prices rule high. "Four pounds of grain daily does good service for four weeks, and indeed it may for four months; but will it prove equally as satisfactory for four years in regular practical every-day feeding? The writer believes that in the long run a more liberal ration would prove more satisfactory." Experiments at Other Stations. Mention will be made in the following of a few other experiments that have a bearing on the question of tne economy of hign feeding. Although they nave not been conducted on as large a scale or planned with that specific point in view as was the case with the Wisconsin and Vermont experiments, they still furnish valuable evidence on this point.
