Barley: An Early Maturing Crop for Years of Feed Shortage
The farmer who Is short of corn may well sow a field of barley in April for hog feed in July and August. Barley, the first of all spring crops to mature, is ready to harvest early in July and will offer relief from feed shortage at least sixty days before the next corn crop is ready. This early maturity makes it available for hog feed just when the pastures are beginning to fail and the shortage of feed is most stringent.
