Japanese cane is one of the finest
forage plants I have even seen for
stock and hogs. It only has to be
planted every five to seven years. We
plant it just like sugar cane and work
it the same. When it gets up, say two
feet high, we begin to cut -It like
millet and feed our mules early in
spring and summer, and it will sucker
out till frost kills it down. We only
cut, say one-half of our patch and
feed young. We let the rest of the
patch get fully matured, then we top
it and save the tops,, dry them like
fodder, to feed through the winter.
We, cut the rest of it even with the
ground and bank it like seed cane.
In the early spring, when we begin
to work mules hard hauling and plow
ing, we go to our bed of Japanese
cane and get out a few stalks at a
time and feed our mules, cows and
hogs. We cut it up in short pieces
with an old hatchet and feed with
other feeds. This makes the finest
green feed for stock we ever used. We
all know when stock are fed con continuously
tinuously continuously on dry feed they get tired
of it, and some think they get puny,
but the most of them just lack an ap
petite. Stock fed on Japanese cane
through the winter and spring never
get puny with us. Our mules like it
and keep fat with less corn when we
feed it. We feed our brood sow on it.
It answers for green pasture through
the winter. We laid m a full supply
