The production of cheaper and better forage crops for live stock in central Alberta [electronic resource] / by George E. DeLong
- Bulletin, New series ; no. 141
- "The suggestions made in the following paragraphs are founded on cultural and rotation experiments and variety and strain tests with forage crops reported in detail in the annual reports of the Station; they summarize observations made in practical forage crop production at the Lacombe Experimental Station, during the ten year period, 1921-1930.The Experimental Station maintains herds of live stock much in excess of those found on the average live stock breeding establishment, hence the question of feed is so vital that any variety, or forage crop treatment which looks promising in the experimental plots is immediately given the acid test of actual production under field conditions. Observations indicate that the production of the best varieties of suitable forage crops in the proper way has increased the stock carrying capacity of the land at the Experimental Station greatly in excess of that found on the average farm"--p. 6.
