Iowa Crop Report " November 1, 1957 Harvest of the fall crops w.-is slow in getting started this year because of late planting and poor drying weather during September, according to the Iowa Cooperative Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. This situation was aggravated by \vct weather during October. At the corn, soybeans and sorKluun end of the month, harvesting of grain was running behind normal in progress toward completion. Jn contrast, the weather which has hampered field operations has 'been favorable for pastures and new seedings. Tho crop out- look ft* a whole- continued to be very good on November !. Estimated productions of all the major crops (corn, oats, soybeans. mill hay) are above hofli las! year's and the 1940-53 ten-year average productions. Ban im; any imforsecn weather extremes, the delays in harvest operation,-.-; are not expected to have any major effect on the final outcome of production. CORN Iowa cnrii produe.'ion remained unchanged at an estimated <>I7.- 747.000 bu. This is 1!! percent more than the .WUJV.'MWO produced last year and Hi j)eri'ent more than the 194(i-, r >r> average production of 544,574.000 bushels. T-he averape yield is placM a!. \'>v.-;at."> i.

They collected 550 bushels of corn ;m d S.mo.OO in two hours time. Word concerning Prairie City's CHOI' canvass spread to other communities where farmers wished to share their produce with needy persons who are assisted by American church a^en cies in other countries. Farmers m Northern Jasper County arranged in shell some of tin ir corn and jj,ive it to CROP. Shell- im,' centers were set up on the Albert liollhoefer farm north of Newton and on the Richard Ciross farm west of Newberg. CROP corn collection centers have been set up in several additional counties throughout the Stnte. and Iowa farmers are responding by sharing from their abundant harvest. Iowa CHOP Director John Nolin said in Oes Moincs Friday, Unit corn or soybeans in ship- pint; quantities are even pre- TO rash pitts ' to 6ROP. "Corn", se said, "is needed for cookini; oil to use in lieu of lard, and a bushel of corn produces t.he same amount of oil whether its value is $0.00 or SI.50. Soybeans are needi (i to furnish pro teins foj- the diet of refugees and flood victims." CROP is shipping '2t'.0.0()0 pounds of soybeans 111 is month to Korea, Hont;U"nji, Haiti, and the Near Kasi. These shipment.; are bem.i_! made in re- spon ,e to a request from Church World Service.

By mixing the proper amounts of BELL BRAND 36% DAIRY SUPPLEMENT and ground grains you can make feeds of any desired protein level. With good quality legume roughage, a 16% protein dairy feed should be used. For fair quality roughage, use an 18% mix and for poor roughage a 20% or 22% protein mix may be needed.
