Potato Can Equal

Feed for Cattle
The potato diversion program
may help dairymen solve a feed
problem, particularly in areas
where roughage is short" from
drouth conditions and in the ma

points out Lancaster County
Agent M. M Smith Potatoes
have a total digestible nutrient
content abput equal to that of
com silage and one-third that of
good quality hay. v
Since potatoes are relatively
low in dry matter and protein,
and lacking in vitamins A and D,
some good quality legume hay or
grass silage needs to be fed with
them. If a heavy allowance df po
tatoes is fed; include in the eon-‘
centrate mixture a slightly higher
content of crude protein.
15 to 25 Lbs Daily Limit
Limit the amounts of potatoes
fed to dairy cows to 15-25 lbs
dady, depending upon the size
of the animal. Smith cautions
not to feed unripe, decayed or
frozen potatoes (they contain
aolanin which rnay be toxic), nor
sprouted potatoes unless ,- the,
