The extensive introduction of cottonseed meal into this state during the period of high priced grain prevailing in the early part of the past year led to many inquiries at this station as to how much of the product could be safely and judiciously fed to domestic animals. We are now feeding cottonseed meal to fattening cattle, in supplementing a corn ration, a t the rate of 31/2 pounds per head daily with entirely safe and satisfactory results. We have also in like manner fed as high as seven pounds per head daily without injury, though the economy of feeding as heavily as this is doubtful. The result of feeding cottonseed meal to hogs has been published in bulletin No. 28 and this experiment was conducted to determine the effect of cottonseed meal upon the flavor, and other qualities, of butter when fed to dairy cows.
