Excerpt from The Country Gentleman's Magazine, Vol. 2: With One Hundred and Seventeen Engravings
Ten oxen, each consuming, non-dried malt the pro duce of 1 stone of raw barley, straw chafi', and bushel of turnips daily, will produce 100 stone of beef in ten weeks whereas fifteen weeks are required to produce the same quantity of beef upon the same num ber of oxen with any weight of other mixed food or 6 lb. Of linseed cake, in addition to the stone of raw grain, will produce only the same quantity of beef in the same time as the non-dried malted grain. A horse daily consuming non-dried malt, the produce of 1 stone of raw grain, with 10 lb. Of hay, will increase 15 stone in weight in ten weeks; whereas, with raw grain, it becomes diseased, hair falls from the skin, loses eyesight, is attacked with grease, and becomes a useless animal. A horse debilitated by disease is quickly restored to health by the use of non-dried malt; but raw barley or wheat will destroy life. Sows and sucking pigs may be fattened with non-dried malt; while raw barley will vitiate the milk, and poison the young pig. For producing pork upon old pigs, raw barley meal is superior to nonodried malt.
