There can be no doubt that early cut hay ís more nutritious, or at any rate more readily digested, than when the grass oí clovor is allowed to get ripe. Timothy and other grass, if intended 'or consumption on the farm, should also ae cut early. If to be sold tbr city hor868, you will get more hay, and a better arico, by letting it grow until the seed ia jeginning to form. ín curing clover hay, our own plan is ;o start tho machines in the afteruoon and leep cutting until dark. Dew or rain will not hurt grass whilo itis green. The noxt morning, alter tho dew is off, vake the partially dried grass into small windrowe with a steel rake. Turn them imraediately after dirmer, and towards night rake into largor windrows and put into cock. Turn or spread out the cocks the next nioruing, and draw in the hay in ;ho afternoon. -
