Mr. Wright, near Dunbar, gives the following account of an experiment with pulped roots and straw and oil-cake.
We have a fair quality of oil-cake and corn-cobs in stock, at reduced figures.
The produce of oil-cake and oil from cotton seed, is two gallons of oil to one cwt.
The principal kinds of oil-cake employed for feeding purposes are the following:—Linseed-cake, Rape-cake, and cotton-seed cake.
There are several factories for pressing cotton, and for cleaning coffee, oil-cake presses, tanneries and saltpetre refineries.
Let us assume the case of an animal fed upon roots, straw, and oil-cake.
The kernel of these nuts makes an oil-cake which is excellent for fattening and conditioning cattle.
The chief exports are oil-cake, flint, cod and Benedictine liqueur.
Bone-crushing, tanning, the manufacture of oil-cake for cattle, and rope-making are carried on in various places.
For a day or two they remain exposed to the air, and are then manured with ashes and oil-cake, and covered with earth.
