Abstract
Lucerne has long been recognized in this country as a valuable food for stock, either fed in the green state, or made Into hay. As a standby for the dry season. Considerable use has also been made of it for silage. but when used for this pur- pose it should. If possible. be ensiled together with some non-protein-rich ma- trials. such as oats. for. if ensiled alone, the high protein content may lead to the~ formation of a sour silage. due to the accumulation of butyric and other un• desirable acids.
