THE BAKEHSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1933 COMMUNITY NEWS ARVIN ALFALFA E. 0. Mitchell Heads Group for New Development of . Hay Product ARVIN, Jan. 14.—E. O. Mitchell of Arvln has been appointed head oi tho 4 alfalfa department of Kern county by the county Farm Bureau. Since a high percentage of the alfalfa grown In this community is sent to southern markets, It Is hoped this department will be made a live one under the able leadership .of Mr. Mitchell.

Mr. Lindsay, farm adviser, lust year outlined a program to determine the profitableness of night baling and It was found that by baling tha hay at night with tho proper humidity In the- air, the grade was sufficiently Increased to mako >2 per ton difference, While this problem Is being properly solved, the alfalfa department under Mr. Mitchell and the extension service, will be studying additional Improvements that may be made by rolling the hay as harvested to make the hay dry more uniformly. Growers here have long known that rotton yields well following alfalfa und If the hay can be-, made more profitable, the practice of alfalfa and Cotton rotation will result In profit to the grower and community which In turn will aid the welfare of the county.
