I Conservation Comments Farmers Getting Jump On Spring By Irvin F. ROSS Although the Groundhog legend has us facing two more weeks of winter, many of our farmers are acting as if spring had already arrived. Limited field activity was apparent in some parts of the county the past week as oats seeding got underway where field conditions would permit. It is gratifying to see that th e s e "early birds" are, in most cases, doing their tillage^ and seeding operations on the contour. These individuals have u n d o u b t- edly been convinced by their own observations that the practice of contour farming pays dividends. Why else would they put out the extra effort unless they knew they were Irvin doing a better job of controlling erosion? In addition the use of contour practices has been shown to give slightly higher yields. "Hats off" to these contour farmers, and may we take this opportunity to encourage more of you to follow this practice. A reminder is due regarding the spring seeding of cool season grasses. Quite a number of waterways remain to be seeded this spring as well as several acres of pasture. Fertilization is often the key to whether a good stand is obtained. If you have a soil test then you are in possession of accurate information to guide you. If not, then you must rely on good judgment. Normally 40 to 50 pounds of actual nitrogen and 30 to 40 pounds of phosphate at seeding time will get the seedlings off to a good start. The two most important things about your spring seeding are good fertilization and early seeding. After Young Farmer In Spotligh; The role of the young farmer in agriculture and cooperative work will be emphasized at the 49th annual stockholders meet- ?ing of the Farmers Union Cooperative Marketing Association in Kansas City, March 6 and 7, according to P. J. Nash, CMA general manager. Approvimately 750 delegates, managers, and co-op officials from more than 200 local associations in Kansas and Missouri are expected to attend the 2-day convention.

Another top speaker will be Jerry Litton of the Charolais Ranch near Chillicothe, Mo. Litton, 25, with his father operates the ranch on which is raised the large white Charolais cattle of French origin. Young Litton, a graduate of the University of Missouri in agriculture, journalism, and economics, is one of the outstanding young farm leaders in the nation. He was forme| state president of the Missouri Association of the Future Farmers of America and later served as secretory of the F.F.A. •;• Other widely known farm leaders who will be guest speakers ^are Roy F. Hendrickson, Wash ington, D. C., executive secretary of the National Federation of Grain Cooperatives; Dr. John Schnittker, Washington, D. C., Assistant to the Secretary of Agri' culture; James R.

The Herald pays $5 every week or the best news tip turned in >y a reader. you have observed these two rules the rest is largely up to nature. As fields are beginning to dry out we are again receiving numerous requests for assistance. These will be taken care of as rapidly as time and weather per mit. If you plan to do some work later in the spring we would appreciate hearing from you. By knowing your needs in advance we are able to more effectively schedule our time. As a final item may I briefly mention care of existing stand of tame grasses. Whether it be in a waterway or pasture definite steps need to be taken now to insure proper growth this spring By now the annual nitrogen application should have been made If not, then it should be done now. On waterways, check for small gullies or bare spots tha ntay need extra attention. Take care of these before long. On pas hires the next important step i regulation of grazing. Growth in early spring may be slow then Be ready to adjust livestocl increase later. Be ready to adjust livestocl numbers to the best advantage Grazing should not begin unti the growth has reached 6 to 8 in ches of height. Regulate grazing so that the grass is' not grazed closer than 4 inches. Have other grazing available so that livestock may be taken off the tame grasses during the dormant summer period.

Studies at Kansas State University show that a number of chemicals, when used at recommended rates, give good control.
