m a Ntack or mow, when it is not
convenient to weigh it. Selling
by measurement is notahvays the
most satisfactory method, but it
is sometimes the most conveni
ent. Seller' are disjuised to in
sist that a cube of 7 feet is a ton.
This is entirely too small and will
not weigh out. How many cubic
feet will make a ton dopouds ou
so many conditions that no cer
tain rule can be given. It de
pends on the kind of hay, whether
timothy, alfalfa, or prairie; ui
4he character of the hay, whether
fino or coarse; on the condition in
which it was put in the stack, the
length of time it has been there,
and particularly on the size, es
IM'ciaMy the depth of the stack or
In a very large mow, well set
tled, 400 cubic feet of alfalfa or
timothy may average a ton, but
on top of the mow or in a small
stack it requires 500 to 512 cubic
feet, some times even more. It
is not safe for the buyer to figure
on less than 500 cubic feet, but in
a well tilled stack, in selling, it
would be safer to weigh than to
sell at that measurement. To
find the number of tons iu a barn
mow or hay shed, multiply the
length, depth and breadth togeth
er and divide by the number of
cubic feet which, considering the
quality of hay and condition in
which it is put up, will make a
ton. For long stacks or ricks
multiply the length in yards and
this by half the altitude in yards
and divide the product by fifteen,
and this should give the tonage.
To, measure a cone shaped stack
find the area of the base by mul
tiplying the square of the cir
cumference in feet by the deci
mal .07958 and multiply the 'pro
duct thus obtained by one-third
of the height in feet and then di
vide as before, cutting off five
right hand figures. The correct
ness of this will depend some
what on the approximation of the
stack to a regular cone, and if the
stack bulges out it makes the
product too small. The better
way is to estimate the area of the
stack up to the point of tapering
in and apply the rule to the cone
shaped top. The best way is to
weigh. The experience of weigh
mg a lew staciis will enable any
one to judge quite correctly.
Another approximate rule for
measuring a round stack is this
Select a place which is as near as
possible to what the- averago size
would be if the stack were of uni
form diameter from the ground
to the top of the point. Measure
around this to get the circumfer
ence. Add four ciphers to the
circumference at the right and
divide the whole by 3.155!) to get
the diameter. Now multiply half
the diameter by half the circum
foreuce and the feet of the cir
cumfereuce area are obtained.
Multiply by the number of feet
the stuck is high, and the solid or
cubic feet iu the whole are ascer
tained. Then divide by the num
ber of feet in a ton, which ranges
all the way from 370 to 512, ac
cording to the fineness and com
pactness of the hay. This will
give the number of tons in the
