12 THE OTTAWA HEBALD Wednesday, April 24. 1963 Results Vary In Ewe Test By DON BROWN Agricultural Ewes fed a low • energy ration during the 1962 preflushing tests at Kansas State University's Branch Experiment Station, Col- May. This is the prediction of John McCoy, agricultural economist at K-Jstate. An increase in pork production and stiff competition from beef account for the lower prices. By June, market- ings are expected to taper off by, lost considerable weight and h [Q ermit a moderate price tended to lamb slightly earlier, ! retw , ery that should carry but the normal ration group had | m jd. summer a 3.4 per cent higher lamb crop, j ^ the second ha , f rf In the 1961 test, however, the | ^ wjll be dominated by mar . tow-energy ewes had a three per| kctinRS from lhe sprjng pig crop cent larger lamb crop Official estimates indi cate a four A low energy radon of t w o cent increase - n { {ar . pounds of alfalfa hay per ewe per | rowj If adual ^ uclion ex . day was given to one-half of the , Cfieds four cent) h ices 327 test ewes during the 1,-day are ctfid to ^ down .preflushing period. A normal ra- Brown's Bylines By DON BROWN tipn of two pounds of alfalfa hay, ^4 pound of sorghum grain, and three pounds of sorghum silage per ewe per day was given to the other half. Weight loss of the low-ration group averaged 11.6 pounds per ewe during the test, while the normal ration ewes showed .2 of a pound gain. The difference in gain response during the flushing period that followed was the largest obtained during three test years. The low- energy ewes outgained the normal ewes 14.6 pounds to five pounds during this 41-day-period April 23, 1962, was the starting date of the preflushing test for the 327 3 and 4-year-old ewes that were divided into two groups on the basis of age and number of lambs produced the previous year. Look for hog prices to be under 1962 levels through April and what from 1962. A good share of the increase in pork supplies will be offset by the increase in population and high levels of employment. Soybean producers should remember the importance of inoculating soybeans to insure that the major portion of nitrogen needed by the soybean plant will be supplied by nitrogen-fixing bac- Inoculation insures the presence of the right type of bacteria, which live in nodules on soybean roots, to obtain nitrogen from the air. This bacteria enables soybean plants to utilize available nitrogen for their own growth and seed production. Over 150 pounds of nitrogen are needed to produce a 35-bushel-per-acre yield. Bacteria needed for nitrogen fixation may he present in some fields. However, a few cents per bushel spent for inoculation is cheap insurance against nitrogen deficiency which causes a yield reduction. It is extremely important that fresh inoculant is used, so be sure to check the date on the box or package before you buy. Complete instructions for applying the inoculation will be found on the container. A Special Week To Honor HDU After considering many suggestions — thanks to the many interested readers — "Home is Where. . . " has been chosen as the "kicker" head for Miss Crist's weekly column. It may "throw you" a bit at first glance, but when you consider that "Home is where the heart is," where the women usually are and where they're doing many of things Miss Crist discusses, perhaps you can make it fit — The Editor. By ROSEMARY CRIST Home Economics Agent Next week April 29-May 4 — is Kansas Home Demonstration Week. This week, with its theme, Today's Home Builds Tomorrow's World, honors the home demonstration units, a part of the state home economics extension program. In addition to studying ap- Home 1s Where.. By ROSEMARY CRIST Either individual or group plans of health insurance are available. The group plan is less expensive because it probably includes more well people than in an individual policy. Non-group policies are important for those who can't qualify for a group or wish to have benefits not generally available in a group plan. Major medical insurance is designed to supplement conventional hospital and medical coverage and to protect against the costs of extremely serious and prolonged illnesses. Usually there is a maximum amount that will be paid, such as $5,000 or $10,000. Two risk - sharing requirements may be included. The deductible may provide that the first $100.00 or a certain amount is paid by the holder before the company pays any benefits. Another requirement, the co-insurer, states that the insurance company pays 75 to 85 per cent of the expense left after the policy holder has paid the deductible. Whether or not a family needs a health insurance policy may depend upon their financial ability to take care of possible medical expenses. Generally speaking, the benefits of a policy are in direct relation to the cost. plication of the latest research in all phases of home economics. the unit members take leadership in citizenship projects for their community, county and state. Franklin County has :t;i | home demonstration units with j 537 members. Kansas has 2,200 j units with a membership of over ' 37,000 homemakers. Many units in this county will | observe the week by preparing a window display showing some extension educational information or showing one of their citizenship activities. Watch for these windows as you shop next week. Health insurance is ihe program or lesson this month for the most of the Franklin County home- demonstration units. Using material obtained in a leader training meeting with Martha Brill, Extension health specialist, Kansas State University, Manhattan, the health leader of each unit is presenting the material. How can health insurance protect a family? Five major types of insurance are for loss of income, hospital care, surgical expense, general medical expense and major medical care. In most situations, hospital insurance is more important than policies covering surgery, medical or loss of income. The cost of hospitalization for a period of time can be expensive. Surgery, for most people, is second in importance. Whether medical expense or loss of income is most important will depend upon the individual family. Future trends, based on demands of the public, include a requirement that every group health insurance policy be sold to carry a mandatory conversion policy upon retirement or leaving the job and to prevent cancellation of any health policy except for fraud or non-payment of premiums. The health insurance industry has come of age with today's emphasis on non-cancellable policies, renewable as long as the policy holder wants. CH 2-4700 . w .
