Silage made from mixtures of stubble clover, oil radish or sunflower with up to a third of fresh matter from pumpkin gave silage judged from acid content to be of very good quality. From digestibility with wethers feeding value was higher with the pumpkin. Silage made from maize and pumpkin was of good quality; digestible crude protein was higher with all mixtures than with maize alone; starch value was slightly higher with mixtures 2: 1 or 1: 1 but lower with 3: 1.
