New Electric Housewares Leaflet This is just off the press and includes information on selection, operation - including cost plus the use and care of many of the newer electric housewares. BY GALEN DeVALOIS Kossuth Extension Director Question - My dairy calves seem to have lice. What can I do about it? Answer - Spray all dairy cattle with an application of 25 hundredths of one percent Ciodrin or 4 or 5 percent malathion dust. Your problem is common. Lice populations build up as the weather gets colder and many times the calves are not on as good a fly control problem as the older animals. * * * You are invited to attend a two- day FARM POWER AND MACHINE SCHOOL in Algona, Thursday, November 30 and December 7. The school will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. each of the two days. Coffee and doughnuts will be served at 9:15 a.m. each day. The school will be taught by Extension Specialists from Iowa State University. They are Dale Hull and Vern Meyer, Extension Ag Engineers from Ames and Wm. Turner, Extension Farm Management Specialist from our Northwest Iowa area office at Spencer. Registration is $3.50. This includes registration, coffee, two meals, text book, etc. We must have advance registration to make meeting plans. The school was requested because many farmers have expressed that tractors and machinery have become an increasingly important part of the management and operation of a modern farm. The agricultural engineers will cover selecting and owning tractors and large machinery; understanding Nebraska Tractor tests, stepping up performance of tractors and electric service for power and grain drying. The Farm Manager will duscuss the effects of farm size vs. machine size vs. machine costs; ownership of machinery vs. leasing vs. custom hire and tax consideration in machinery investment. These and other discussions should be very worthwhile. Please send in your $3.50 to the County Extension Office right- a-way, as schools like this have filled up fast in the past. , MEMOS FROM MARGARET BY MARGARET PRATT Kossuth Extension Home Economist Here are some notes on cookware, equipment and housing, including where to get more information if you want it.
