By G. A. VANDERFORD Associate County Agent Since Coastal Bermuda is one of the most productive summer grasses and produces high quality hay and grass with high total digeslable nutrients co.Vposilion, it is one of the best plants to depend on for summer grazing. Coastal Bermuda will grow well on most of our different soil types. It will stand abuse of heavy grazing; Coastal when inter- planted with a legume will give excellent daily gains. Coastal Bermuda plants when onco estabish- ed will stand severe weather conditions such as droughts, floods is important and should be done in advance of planting time. Land that is to be planted in Coastal this fall should be fallowed now, until after first frost. This type of land preparation will insure belter stands and reduce weed probems. Cattlemnn who have a n e e d of more summer grazing or hayi crop, should consider Coastal to! fill the gap.

Tlii Oppose Controls statement reaffirmed the beef producers' long-standing opposition to "legislative proposals and policy statements w h i c h j would bring cattle under any formi of artificnlly maintained prices, or controlled marketings, or continued subsidies." It further stated that "we do not believe that the complex cattle business con fully serve its market or realize full potentials under system of production and marketing controls," National government should provide 'logical income fax treatment and realistic policies concerning imports," the cattlemen slated.

The challenge of better public relations for agriculture was voiced by Walter Rayner of Greenville and Clifton Kirkpatrick of National Cotton Council. Tell the facts about what agriculture can give to everyone, they said. The test of any action taken y any farm organization should be whether it is for the welfare of the general public, Kirkpatrick declared. Mississippi probably has the best cooperation among farm organizations of any stale, he added. Other groups advancing better public relations for agriculture include the Delta Council, and the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation. sumption of beef was made by Bud Brandenburg of Denver, Colo, secretary, National Beef Council He was introduced by Don Bart lett of Como, who is nationa Council president, L.

VANDERFORD Associate County Agent Each horn fly can consume one drop of blood every day. Look at your cows and sec how many pints of blood you are losing each day. These blood suckers transmit Anaplasmosis, weaken the cattle which give rise to other organisms and cause cattle to lose weight while they are fighting the flies. These loses can be curbed by spraying every two weeks with a good safe dependable insecticide or by the use of back rubbers properly treated and placed at strategic spots in the pasture. The difference in daily gains alone will more than pay for the insecticides. Treat your cattle to a greater health program. per cent.
