County Agent Advises Extra Acreages As Roughage For Beei Cattle WHIi tonnage and protein supplement ;>t a premium now, J. J. i'ickien, county agent, suggests thai t'litlle producers of this county plain extra acreages of corn or Korglium, and .soybeans for silage lo he stored lu constructed trench silos.- Tlie one outstanding advantage of siliicc as a roughage for beef cattle Is Hie large amount of total digestible nulrlents that can be produced per acre, When grown in combination with corn nnd sorghum, soybeans reduce Hie yield of total silaec per acre, but they Increase materially tho protein content or the silage. With protein concentrates as scarce as Ihey are today, it might, be wise lo lorego some tonnage in favor of more protein, the agent suggests. Silage composed of two-thirds corn or .sorghum and one-third soybeans will have a nutritive ratio of 1.7 to 1.8 which is suitable for wintering lieef ciilvcs or yearlings. For wintering beef cows, only one- fifth of the silage need be soybeans. In view of the feed and protein shortages cattle producers would do well to construct, trench silos, and to plant larjje Acreages of corn or sorghums, and soybeans for silage.

In sowing seeds in hot, dry wcalli- er, for late croiis ot short-liarvcsl varieties, it is usually more dim- cult to obtain gooci gormiiuition than it is in the cool, moist weather ol spring. Special precautions should therefore !>e taken. Drills should )>c mnde deeper than in tlie spring, and the soil thoroiiglily soaked along them. Then sow the seed and do not cover them sufficiently to fill the drill entirely, but leaving a slight depression which will catch'liny moisture that may tall in dews or light rains. • If, in addition. Hie row can be covered with narrow boards, lo shade tlie soil from the sun ami check evaporation. Ecrminafion will usually result in normal time. Lacking such boards, the row may he" covered with paper, or burlap. The board is preferable, cnn be lifted an inch or so above the ground, on cross pieces ot wood, so Uiat air circulates freely beneath it, it tlcsired, to check any danger oC damping on'. II is important to prevent the formation of a soil crust over seeds before they have germinated. This may result from .1 heavy rain, followed by baking in the hot sun. In clay soil it may prevent the seeds from emerging. Shading avoids this danger. Whatever shading material is used, ns soon ns the seeds appear- above the surface it.must be lifted to allow full sunlight to the young lilnnis. Until these have become well established, daily sprinkling with a hose will prove beneficial. Except for srich a specific purpose, however, the Victory garden should never he sprinkled, Dust should be encouraged to form over Ihc-soil; it-'will.?nab!e air to pen* trato and rains'to soak in.
