COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9,1988 REVIEW ™° FORECAST On Missco Farms By KEITH BILBRES, County Aftnt People RICHARD IKK from Gosnell, said, "If I had not used fertilizer this year I would not have made anything." He said further that he finally picked 90 pounds of seed cotton per row where unfertilized and 180 pounds per row u-here he applied nitrogen and potash. It was gumbo soil. ROBERT KOONCE, New Liberty, came in and asked how much he could afford to pay in land rent for a given piece of land.

Alarming Situation SHKLBYVILLE, Ky. UPl — Two would-be burglars obligingly—but accidentally—called the police when they entered a lumber firm in the wee hours. One of them knocked a telephone off the Hook. The operator relayed word to officers that something strange was going on. So the police rushed out and nabbed the pair. Precipitation, in the form of rain and snow, is expected to exceed normal in states bordering the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys, the Northern Kocky Mountains and the West Coast.

There are certain measures of performance that can! be used to help answer this ques-j non. Kl'ftrieney Measure ! Returns ppr $100 worth of feed j fed is one of [he best and most j commonly used measures of the j efficiency of a livestock enterprise,' It is generally a good measure of overall profitableness, since feed Is the largest element of cost in a livestock enterprise. Feed makes up about 75 ttf 80 percent of all costs for hogs and about 80 to 85 percent for beef cattle and sheep. Danger Indicator Knowing the returns per S100 feed fed to a certain kind or groan of livestock lets the farmer snow i how profitable was the enterprise I But perhaps more important, ' such ft measure of efficiency serves as a danger indicator 10 let the operator know when returns are not what they should ue. It gives him an opportunity to discover'and correct management and production practices that nniy be. causing unsatisfactory returns; Without some such measure of efficiency, a livestock enterpvisi could inve mediocre returns Tor -\ Ions time without the fanner OP- ! in" fully aware of the fact. j " Profits May Vary ( A 10-year study f 1936-45 > of j live.--t.ork earnings on North-Central Illinois farms shows how t widely livestock profits may varyj from farm to farm, and points up j I the need for keeping records to j 1 determine enterprise efficiency ] For the 10-yeiir period, the aver-' ;e re Mini from hugs for the 200. | farms involved was S151 for each : [ supplement for hogs. 'Hie total amount bought may be entered directly under that enterprise and no further entry made until another lot of the feed is purchased. The filling of a self-feeder could be handled similarly. At the end of the year, totals from the monthly records are added to get the year's total consumption of each feed by each livestock enterprise. It is desirable, at the end of the year, to reconcile the feed record with the feed inventories and production records for the year. This is needed as a check againsr errors, and for making any necessary adjustments in the feed record.' General Records In addition to a feed record, cei t.iin information from the (1) farm inventory and the (2t farm cash account will ne needed in calculating returns per S100 worth of feed fed. The farm inventory and the farm cash account are two farm records that should be kept on all farms. They, with certain production records, should be kept as a -Trim- mum system of records on any farm. You can get your County A^ciu to help you measure the cffici-ini-y of your livestock enterprises. Vie will be glad to give you any needed help with your farm records. W/TJ* A "Votes are really pHiiiR up since I'm promising' A Caloric Gas R:\nge for every kitchen if I'm elected.
