Gragg Growing Wood Crops Growing wood crops on the farm is a farm job. It is not a separate activity. And, since you can .do your woodland work at any time, you can make more ef- ficient year-round use of your labor and equipment. Growing wood crops is basically the same as growing any other farm crop. It involves an un- derstanding of soil capability for woodland planting, care and im- provement of the trees, and harvesting and marketing of the wood crop. Trees are plants. The growth of a tree and of a cornstalk or a tobacco plant are similar. Trees respond to soil management and cultural practices just as other plants do. Every landowner is anxious to get the best return possible from each acre of his farm. He needs to decide how he can best use his soil. his labor and his equipment in growing wood crops just as he does for growing any other crop. Technical assistance in relating soils information to growing your wood crop or other specialized aspects of growing wood as a crop is available from the U.S.D.A. Soil Conservation Service with offices in the basement of the Courthouse at Hart- ford. Ky.

The cause of tetany is unknown, but it appears to be associated with low magnesium content in the blood. It commonly occurs in beef cows, a few weeks after calving, when they are grazing rapidly growing grass in the spring or fall, however, a high incidence of the disease sometimes occurs in the winter when pasturegrowthis very low and the plane of nutrition is generally poor. Many times the ration consists of only low quality hay. It is under these conditions especially that a sudden change of weather, a wet, cold spell, may trigger the disease. During such times the animals are under heavy stresses from location, low plane of nutrition, and high loss of body heat. Remember, cattle can die of tetany in the county. However, good feeding and management will reduce death loss. Here are some rations that you should feed from about February to May if you could run into this trouble: Low Risk Ration (If cows are dry and you haven't had grass tetany) 40 percent salt, 40 percent magnesium oxide, 20 percent steam bone meal. Feed free choice. of the material will contain  a complete set 0f in- structions. This procedure should certainly make friends among home sewers everywhere. .lohn High Risk have calves, quality hay, tetany before) ground corn or meal, 6 percent Oxide, 25 percent phosphate or meal. Feed 2 to 3 mixture per If you have grass tetany, thet cows a mixture magnesium oxid pounds of corn at 2 pounds If you have questions, call tension Office. feed dealers in will have a magnesium oxide. lee eeooleloe•eoeeoee el BATTERI i i o It I Illll tlt tl tl t : aid i will be that we now ! complete line : aid supplies. ! longer : obtain : cords from i reach" : our heari department at opportunity. : We ate : this service :" convenience ot : aid users. i Spinks' !
