Abstract

The farmers of Iowa are growing sugar beets to learn the adaptation of the soils and climates of the state to sugar production. The feeding value of the beet entire without the sugar extracted, is a matter of interest to them.

The crop of potatoes in 1891 was large, and where they were unsalable owing to remoteness from markets, or for other causes, it became interesting to ascertain feeding values for dairy products.

In conformity with inquiries concerning these subjects, this station fed four cows during three months, beginning December 1st, 1891, and ending February 29, 1892.
