JAdkSONVfiL.t FLAa Thevalue of dehydrated sweet potatoes as
a carbohydrate feed for fattening beef cattlY in dry lot has been reported
in results of feeding trials ty Agriculti&al txpraiment Stationd in Ala-
bama, Tepnessee, Mississpipi, Georgia, and Tokeas In each of thbse ex-
perimenrs, dehydrated sweet potatoes, commonly called d(eet potato meal,
was compared with oornZ In two of the experiments the dorn was fed as
corn-oob.-huok-imeal, while in the other 5 experiments the cork was fed
either as whole shelied corn, cracked shelled corn, or as ground shelled ~u
*orn. All of the experimental rations contained cottonseed meal as the
lprwin supplement. The averages for. the seven experiments are shown be-
low in pounds per animals

aell C496 754, -26- -
Corn Cob Shack Meal 135 585 795 210 1.55
Sweet Potato Meal 138 525 757 232 1.681

These.data indicate that sweet potato meal is approximately 93
pers.aent as :effieint, as shelled corn and 108 per oent as efficient as corn-
ceb-shuck meal. These figures are further substantiated in feeding trials
with dairy cattle at, experiment stations in Georgia and Texas. The dairy
cattle feeding test in Georgia showed that sweet potato meal produced 8.2
per cent:mnre milk than corn meal, while the test at Texas showed sweet po-
tateOmeal to be 91 per cent as efficient as yellow corn meal in producing

STATE COLLEE, MISS. In a bWjlotin issued recently by the
Missiessppi Agricultural Experiment Station entitled "Fortliser, for-Starch
Sweet Potatoes" tby W. S. Anderson, Head, Department of Horticultwte., spe".
cifoi information is given regarding the amount of plant food, nutrients ne-
cessary for maxiimu production. Mr. Anderson recommends to Mississippi
farmers they see that.their soils contain 50 pounds fa actual nitrogen,
.5 pounds of phosphorie.acid (P2 0i), and.50 to 60 pounds of potash (K20)
per acre for sweet potato production. He brings out the practicability of
securing a large part of the reop mended nitrogen by turning under legum-
inous coaer crops prior to the time of planting potatoes.
