Wangsness, Extension Director in Fayette. This is due to the increasing number of farmers using stack, bunker or trench silos to store corn and grass silage, says Wangsness. Air penetration into the silage and excessive moisture from rainfall have caused spoilage which has been hard to avoid. Plastic silo covers provide a relatively airtight, weathertight protection for the silage. Observations at Purdue University Gene Win.

IOWA farm page Wangsness Urges "Caution" If Eggs Must Be Washed Kxtension D i r e c t o r M. C. Watigsrii.-ss of Fayette is cautioning county poultrymen this summer that washed eggs are often mure perishable than unwashed duty eyn-i. Then- are real advantages in producing clean eggs, but the ha/anls of washing — if done improperly — make it more important !o keep eggs clean in the laying house So they don't have lo be washed unnecessarily. Kxtension Director Wangsness ays proper washing, however, slues nu appreciable harm tr> the product, according to Leonard F.gillcton, Iowa State College Extension Poultry Marketing Specialist. Washing is not as good as dry cleaning dirty eggs, he •ontinues, but because of pressure to increase cleaning output per man, washing has come into .vidcr use. And wet eggs are ideal places for bacteria to grow -UK! swim. The porous qualities of the she[l provide easy access to the fund inside. Kggleton suggests these gcn- •ral rules and explains why they should be remembered: 1. Always keep your washing equipment clean. This includes the room where eggs are kept. There is no known practical method of killing bacteria after they're once inside the eggs, so verything that comes into contact with eggs must be clean and ~. Use only fresh, clean drinking water lo wash eggs. Mix fresh •;amti/er-detergcrit solutions af- :er each five or six baskets ire washed. Otherwise, bacteria washed off into the solution will iass from one egg to others. .'i. A 1 1 liquid solutions — washing, spray or rinse — must H' warmer than the eggs. The ;>oultryman suggests 110 to 120 degrees for immersion. No im- nt'rsion should be more than 1 to 2 minutes. If water is cooler than the eggs, movement of bacteria through the porous shell is aided by suction created inside the cooling egg. 4.

Be "Smarter" Than Your Jvestock, Not "Stronger" Wangsness Advises 4-H'ers Fayelte County 4-H'ers are low in the final stages nf pre- wiring their livestock projects 'or the Fayette County Fair to >e held August 20-23 at West Jnion, according to M. C. Wangs- ii ss, County Extension Director. "The greater number of live•.tock being handled now in- •reases the chance for accidents, particularly if animals aren't reatcd correctly," Wangsness warns. However, a carefully rained animal, used to being landled, is likely to cause considerably less trouble when it's irijt! loaded or exhibited at the show. He points out that the Exh-n- •.lon Safely Specialist Norval .Vurdle of Iowa State College •iays one out of 10 fnrm families •eported accidents involving livestock in one county surveyed •ecently. More than half the nni- nals involved were cattl.e and nost of these were dairy breeds. Work slowly with animals, uaking no abrupt movements, Wat-die advises. Loud and unnecessary shouting usually tends >nly lo frighten the animals. 'The best way to learn is to watch someone who really knows low to handle livestock," he says. Another precaution is to be •illre halters are strong and fit he animal properly. A few short, ight tugs on the hulter rope will iften divert the animal's attention from strange surroundings which otherwise might make him nervous and cause him to bolt. Injury tn the animal, as well as vo the exhibitor, can be disastrous around show time, especially after weeks and months of preparation, Wardlo points out. Weak or slippery loading chutes are the most common cause of animal injuries. Safety precautions for the animals should also include 'providing plenty of bed ding material in the truck and at the fair. Any equipment that will In- used at the show should be familiar to the animal. "If the animal will be drinking from bucket instead of a wateriiij. trough while away from home better get him used to it now,' Wardlo suggests. The safety specialist poinU out that animals react differcntl> in strange surroundings. He ad vises anyone handling stock ti "expect tliu unu "Bade Rubber" Insecticide Applicators Don't Affect Stable Flies" Fayette County farmers are asking why "back rubber" insecticide applicators don't con- irol the stable fly problem, re- 'ports Extension Director M. C. Wangsness of Fayette. "It's a matter of applying thp chemical where it will do the most good." Wantfsnes.s continues. He says stable flies — becoming quite numerous in some sections of tin 1 county — prefer the let's and undersides of tho animal, according to Harold Gunderson, Iowa State College ex- lcnsir)n entomologist. Gunderson says animals are attacked only when the flies are feeding — sucking blood. Then they'll flv 1o a fence, wall or side of a barn lo rest "while digesting .'heir [ti(-;i)." The entomologist cits two reasons why residual sprays used on entile are so:netimes ineffective: Spraying does not give good uniform coverage on the lower pacts of the animal without "extra effort," am! Hie chemicals are often removed mechanically when the animal walks through deep, wet grass or wallows in mud and water. The first step in controlling the pests is sanitation, says CJunder- soil. Remove strawy manure, old hay stack debris, or piles of cut weeds and grass — all idea! breeding places for stable flies. Leaving ruined hay or accumulations of rotting vegetation in he field will provide additional n-cedim; grounds for the flies, if says. "The use of residual spray luis •aused some confusion," C!underpin says, "mostly because an insecticide is often times applied n diseriminately to the inside or ilit.side of buildings." Sunlight Hid weather exposure cause •ioine chemicals to break down nore rapidly than others he e.x- ilains. For outside walls and fences, Gunderson recommends a 1 per- •ent solution of methoxychlor, I'pplied once a woek. He says to spray livestock shelters inside with 1 percent maliilhinn or O.f> percent di-i/inon. These sprays will give "good control" of house flies, stable flies and blow flies for 2 to (i weeks, depending on the material used. The next job is to keep tin' 15~ AUGUST TflS7 FayeHe County Leader Page 4 flics off the animals, Gunderson says. The. best all-purpose repel- kmts arc activated or "synergi- zed pyrethrins. Spray each animal with approximately 2 ounces of diluted Dilution. The mixture should contain 0.05 to 0.1 percent of the concentrated pyrethrin. Thi^ repellant has a residual effect lasting only 28 hours, so for complete protection Guilder son suggests treatment onee i';u-h day. Either a hand sprayer or an automatic treadle type is satisfactory. Harlan 4-H Club The Harlan Livestock 4-H club held its August meeting at the Maynard Community Hall recently with Jimmy Nicholson and John Arp as hosts. The roll call was "Are You Going to the County Fair?" After the meeting entry blanks for the Fayelte County Fair were filled out. Gary Brownell uiul Paul Clark reported on their tour to Mason City. Trying to "force" an animal into a loading chute or strange pen is useless, Wardle says. An animal many times heavier and stronger than the handler "has the advantage." When handlin .slock under any conditions, li concludes, "He smarter . . , nut stronger." THE SKY KINGS Ono of the worlds greatest hii'.h acts.
