Fanners Help Hunters With Cover Crops City sportsmen who take gun in hand and head for the woods and fields in Kossuth county this fall have a real stake in the Agricultural Conservation Program, according to Richard I. Anderson, chairman of the ASCS. With the number of hunters increasing each year, there's more and more pressure on wildlife supplies. And since about 85 percent of our wildlife is produced on privately owned farmland, hunting success depends pretty much on how well farmers have done in providing food and cover areas. For this reason, conservation practices carried out by farmers with cost-share assistance from the ACP have played a big part in maintaining and improving the game supply on 120 Kossuth county farms. For example, farmers have improved or established over, 32,889 acres of cover cropsdur- ing the past-number of years with the ACP sharing about half the cost. These cover crops provide excellent nesting cover and food for a variety of wild game. During this same period, farmers have provided additional food and cover by planting more than 25 acres of shrubs. Sportsmen have also benefit- ted from wildlife produced on acreage farmers have diverted to conservation use under the wheat and feed grain programs, Mr. Anderson emphasized. In 1965, acreage diverted from wheat and feed grains and planted to some type of cover crop totaled 64,572 acres. And since 1961, when these voluntary programs first began, over 51,039 acres have been diverted to this type of conservation use. (la.)
