Howell, I Extension forester. Experiments have, shown that pine posts treated with the new- chemical were still lei good condition after 11 years, while untreated posts failed In three to four year*. The substances is easly handled and does not evaporate readily. Mr. Howell make* il clear, )iof:'»v»r, that more testings will be necessary before Its value for different woods i can be accurately stated. | Pentacholoraphenol is usually ap- | piled as a five, per rent solution j In a suitable light fuel oil. After treatment, Ihe wood Is clean, non- I bleeding and paintable. The solu- Ition penetrates more uniformly throughout the pole.i than thicker preservatives. Wi\ile pressure treatment is best, simble soaking has proved effective for many woods. Butonl) dry posts which have been throughly cleaned will produce good results without pressure. Posls cut during the late winter and spring months are easier and cheaper to peel. Posts Siiinilri be Seasoned After cutting and peeling, posts should be allowed to season. Green worn! will not absorb the preserva- . tive properly and will crack upon i drying. Seasoning lakes from two j to six months, depending on the I climate and time of the year.

Livestock specialist points out that th» way lo have productive. year-round grazing i» to plan ahead to that, oilier grasses are ready for grazing when present pastures pass (tielr peak. Permanent pastures nod native grasses furnish peak grazing ahmit thlj time of the year. When warmer weather comes In Summer months, pastures will begin to fade the need rest. Planned ahead, temporary pastures will counties lhe good gains livestock • have made on permanent pastures i and increase production and profits. j Sudan grass, especially the new, i | popular sweet variety, is one of the ' j most practical temporary Summer | pasture crops In the cotton South. • Planted early In the Spring when soils get warm, II usually reaches peak production when other grasses i are no longer productive, and often j provides excellent gra/Jng until i late Fall. Proper stocking and the use of supplemental feeds increase the i value of -Sudan pasture for llve- 1 stock. Sudan Is most productive ! when allowed to grow in a height ! of 8 to 10 inches, and then gr»7ed \ enough to keep lhe growth y6ung I and tender. Any extra growth 1 should be mowed and curM for hay. J-'eeriinx- cottonseed HIM! and jdry roughage when grazing is short increases the productivity of the paslm e. It is best to keep .some dry roughage always available to slock on Sudan pasture. Dry roughage Is especially important when the grass it young and "wasliy." When Sudan matures, a protein supplement is needed by livestock. One to two pounds of cottonseed | meal or cake, daily per heart, will meet the protein requirements of beef cows, dry dairy cows, or growing and bred heifers. The tlally amount needed depends on the condition of the pasture, and age i and condition of the cattle. When ] grazing is very poor.
