By succession in forage crops is meant that order in which they may be grown throughout the season so as to provide pasture in uninterrupted continuity, and so that each kind of forage may be grazed when at its best. The treatment of this question is difficult because of the great variation in the forage crops that are adapted to various sections in the wide area under consideration, and because of the no less variation in the climates of the same. No better plan, probably, can be adopted than to divide the country into sections, and to formulate a succession in forage crops that would be suitable to each. This division should, of course, have a due regard to similarity in conditions such as relate to climate and soil. The various forage crops will be enumerated in the order in which they are usually ready for being grazed. They are not thus enumerated with the idea that the farmer shall grow all of them, or even a majority of them, in a single season. It would seldom be wise for him to do so. But they are mentioned in the order named that he may the more readily select such of them for being grown as shall best suit his purpose. Where grasses are a sure reliance, it will seldom be necessary for the farmer to grow more than one, two or three kinds the same year. Forage from grass should always be looked upon as the great reliance for pasture, wherever such forage grows freely, whether spontaneously or otherwise. Other forage crops should be made auxiliary to it, unless the growth of grasses is so meager as to forbid giving these so prominent a place. Wherever practicable a reserve of grass forage should be held, as it were, for seasons of wet weather and for those periods of emergency when other forage crops may ...
