Frequent cases of suspected forage poisoning in this state which apparently were traced to moldy silage, led to this study. The silage in a silo below the surface layer is almost always free from mold, at least when properly packed and containing a sufficient amount of moisture. Occasionally, however, clumps of mold are found far below the surface and in the interior of the mass where the amount of oxygen is almost negligible. In order.to secure a considerable number of samples of such moldy silage, notices were sent out to the newspapers of the state through the press bulletin, "Better Iowa."
