Pasturing Too Early is Harmful to Grass And Gives Little Feed By C. 0. Powell) One of the biggest labor and feed saving Items for this year can be that of finding sufficient pasture for nil classes of livestock for the •entire season. Oftentimes cattle are turned on early spring pastures several weeks too soon. For best results livestock should not bo turned out to graze on pastures until the grass is between 6 and 6 Inches tall. Not only is the early, succulent grass of little feeding value to livestock, but pastures can be definitely retard throughout the entire summer by early pasturing. Any cropping which result^ In reduction of growth above the ground Is reflected in the root development and In the quantity of food stored in the roots. Poor de- 'velopment of the root system results In the production of a cor- ••••wsspondlngly small quantity of pasture during subsequent seasons. " As soon as dairy cattle get a taste of green grass It Is hard to get them to eat enough additional dry feed to maintain production levels. Dairymen In particular can oftentimes benefit materially by use of a few acres of supplementary pasture such as sudan grass during July and August when other pastures often are at their poorest. Sudan grass should be seeded about May 15 for such pasturing. Farmers Asked to Conserve Feed Bags y , (By C. Q, Powell) . Humboldt county farmers are asked to cooperate in the conservation of cotton and burlap bags ft?r the packing of agriculture commodities, accordln gto the Humboldt county Agricultural War Board. Major objectives of the program, being sponsored by the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture, are to urge farmers to handle bags 'carefully so that they can be used repeatedly and to promote the quicker return of usable bags into trade channels. War has already greatly reduced imports of burlap and stocks now on hand must be shared with our military forces as well as with the increased requirements of agriculture under the program for ex- -iwujded production. NBnnally about 60 percent of all textile bags manufactured in the U. 8. are used for agricultural purT poses and approximately half of those used by agriculture are made of burlap imported chiefly from India. Burlap imports, due to war, are now negligible. Hay cotton stocks are ample, but at best only slightly aboue normal supplies of cotton bags will bo available for use during the first half of 1942 since the mills whichc manufacture heavy cotton bagging materials are at present working to capacity to fill war orders.
