Under \Haysfack Dalryland Power Cooperative Has Gains in Almost All Operations GAINS IN ALMOST all phases corn, soybeans and of Dalryland Power Cooperative's Ported on Jan. 1. 1958 operations were reported at year-end by John P. Madgett. Dalryland supplies electric power to the Freeborn Mower Cooperative Light and Power Assn. and Cedar Valley Electric Co-op and both associations are stockholders in Dairyland. , The average net cost of electricity was reduced again, the ninth cut in the past 11 years, Madgett •aid. Other gains were kilowatt- hour sales up to 735 million kilowatt-hours and average power consumption up to 545 kwh. Major construction scheduled this year includes completion of the fifth generator unit at the Alma, Wls., steam plant. Also planned are 110 miles of transmission lines, seven distribution stations and enlargement of two other stations, and interconnection facilities with other power companies. Supervisory controls will be com. pleted at transmisison stations Ln eluding the one at Adams. THE DATE OF the 4-H radio •peaking contest has been changed to Feb. 7. Originally it has been set for Feb. 14, the date taken this year by the district contest which was moved up a week from previous years. IN THIS WEEK'S mall was the announcement of the Larro Feeds division of General Mill's farm recipe roundup contest. The contest is open only to farm residents. ONE 4-H GIRL who has hit the big time is Mamie Van Dor- tn. She was a club member when •h« lived on a farm near Sioux Falls, S. D., before moving to Hollywood in her teens. CEDAR VALLEY Electric Coop at St. Ansgar has authroized payment of the 1944 deferred patronage checks. Payment was to got underway as soon as the 1958 financial records were closed. NOTES FROM THE State Crop Reporting Service: Stocks of small grains — wheat, eats, barley, rye and flaxseed ~ were higher this year than a year &ro and lower stocks of supplies, Livestock Loss Prevention Aim of '59 Program Plans to make 1959 "National Livestock Losi Prevention Year," with a 12-month effort to reduce today's two billion dollar annual livestock losses from diseases and parasites, were announced today by the American Foundation for Animal Health and cooperating organizations. The 12 - month drive is being built around those disease, parasite, and nutritional problems which are causing the largest losses. A special effort is to be made against one major problem each month. In addition, several lesser causes of losses are also schedul Milk production In "If there are few integrators in an area, the producer may be for— —„ «- ced to follow undesirable terms or sometimes called contract farm- December ing - Is here as a method for uma o/io _iui . —-•>•"•»"»« •"* — « jicre us B metnoa ior was 808 million pounds, SO mil- arriving at greater efficiency in won pounds more than December production and marketing.

Farm and livestock organizations, coast to coast, are expected to join in the project. "Many of today's huge disease losses can be greatly reduced," Foundation said in launching the drive. "We have the know-how, the veterinary research and skill to get the job done. It is hoped that by focusing attention on each of the major causes of losses, month by month, and by enlisting the help of everyone, substantial savings can result for our farm and livestock industry during 1959." 1957. Egg production in December was higher than in November but below December of 1957. Commercial livestock slaughter November was about the same as November 1957, although there was a decline in the cattle kill. An 11,000 head increase in the state's sheep and lamb popula< tion on Jan. 1 was found. THERE'S NO need to remind you that this is Combined Rural Solicitations Week in Mower County. This area is known for championship activity. . .and a sue cessful pooling of three fund drives into one will be a championship accomplishment too. HOG MARKETING cooperativ es will not bring a significant increase in prices, the Midwest Swine Conference at Ames, Iowa, was held by Willard Cochrane, University of Minnesota, economist. The only effective way for producers to raise prices is total and absolute control of production and marketing, with national quotas, penalties and a closed shop. Cochrane said he wasn't advocating such a program. THE WELL-DRESSED chicken will be wearing a stamp mark certifying it has passed federal in spection. The poultry inspection act went into effect Jan. 1 and requires federal Inspection of plants, processing and product. This is the same inspection given the meat packing industry. Some poultry processors have voluntarily paid for federal Inspection in the past and sold their product with the federal inspection stamp, DECEMBER FARM prices were about one-half per cent above a year earlier in Minnesota, the Crop and Livestock Report noted. The increase was caused by a six per cent gain in crop prices which offset declines in hog, milk and egg prices. Minnesota prices were maintained on contrast to a national decline. ' HOLSTEINS FOR beef can be profitable, the Colorado Experiment Station says. In an experiment with 16 Hoi- stein Bteers, stilbestrol - fed animals gained 2.4 pounds a day, compared with 2.1 pounds in the control group. The stilbestrol-steers outgained the control group, even though the weight gains were the same for the first 60 days. Stilbestrol Holsteins were 57 per cent meat compared with 53 per cent in the control herd. THREE EXPERTS on weed con annual plant industry conference in Liebenstein 4-H Hall, Jan. 27.

Farm management or business-dominated?" "So far," Routhe pointed out "most of the interest in Integration in' livestock farming is at the feed supplier level." One Place Control Integration, he explained, is any type of agricultural business in which two or more steps in production, processing and distribu tion — which were formerly in dependent — are controlled in one place. The broiler industry, for example, is almost entirely inte grated and there's a trend toward integration in hog and bee feeding. "Integration won't envelope us overnight, but it will be a continu ing trend," Routhe said. "It wil help the trend to greater special! zatlon on farms and will lead to greater total output. With the con tinuing trend toward greater vol ume and capital requirements to handle it, integration offers many producers an opportunity to g e t greater financing. It will mean more geographical concentration of production." As advantages, Routhe said integration could reduce risks to farmers, since production and price would be more likely to be stable. "Under some integration schemes, the producer shifts part of his price risk to another party, or he reduces his work by bargaining outside the regular market channels. How this would work, of course, would depend on the type of arrangement." Sees Freedom Loss Also on the advantage side, Routhe listed mora efficient use of labor under integration, 1m proved technology, better quality control and greater ability to gear production to market demand. Routhe also named some disadvantages of integration. "There will be some loss of freedom," he said, "but it depends on the risk assumed by the integrator. There is a danger of unfair contracts which might put farmers in un equal bargaining positions. "Control of decision - making could be shifted from the farm to other business. In an extreme case, this could put the farmer in the role of a hired laborer. Increased scale of operation could change the status of family farming, but whether this will actually happen is questionable. Could Force Decisions "Integration could force the farmer to accept management decisions which are less profitable St. Ansgar Leader Heads County Unit Wilmar Krahn, St. Ansgar, has been elected chairman of the Mit--"—-—• *-«-•-* M4b.iu vu WCCU UUil- t- 11 n i A * -. trol problems will speak at the u 11 ? mty ** Bfly * Committee annual niant-. inH,, 0 fr» „««». bv the leaders.

R. E. Jacobs, University of Minnesota extension livestock specialist, says this: Feed them to the grade they deserve, ff the quality of the cattle indicates they can make choice grade, feed them accordingly, but avoid feeding to heavy weight choice or even heavy weight prime grades. Right now, heavy cattle are selling for less per pound than lighter cattle within the same grades. And this will probably continue for several months. TJie reason is that feeder cattle prices are high and WALK-IN WASH UP — Prince of Davisdell 13th— all 911 pounds of him—-gets a bath at a Houston, Tex., filling station to get ready for the Houston Fat Stock Show. Jim Eubanks a Future Farmer of America, handles the hose while Judy Pence, 14, looks on. farmers are putting more pounds on cattle they have. This situation is causing aa oversupply of heavy cattle carcasses. Two-year-old feeder cattle generally weight 900-950 pounds and are fed for 90-120 days. Jacobs says you can handle them in one of three different ways: You can put them on a full feed of corn silage, plus two pounds of high-protein supplement per hea'd daily. Add some grain, two or three pounds of hay and free choice mineral and salt. If the silage is grass-legume, leave out the protein supplement but add at least four to five pounds grain daily. Follow the silage-feeding period with a high-grain finishing ration for 60 days. This calls for a full feed of corn, a pound of protein supplement and three to four pounds of alfalfa or mixed hay Legal Notice )ROER FUR HKAK1NO UN FETl riON FOR ADMINISTRATION, LIM TING TIME TO FILE CLAIMS AND ™.^» w. ».. u .it. w« ...uv.. u naj.

The cattle can be fed on a be »tuck with unused facilities." Routh* urged farmer! themselves to do these things: "Watch for changes. Plan your production and marketing program to make good use of labor and gear production to changing consumer demand. Pick the livestock enterprise system best adapted to your farm and follow a good breeding program. "If you sign a contract, make sure you can live with it. And farmers need to look into ways to band together to gain bargaining power." THE MULCH THE BERRIER — Plasfic film used as a strawberry mulch on the Ishibashi Brothers rancn in Torrence, Calif., has reduced fruit losses due to mold rot by 75 to 85 per cent. The "magic carpet" of plastic film, made from Bakelire polyethylene, was used on the Ishibashis' 12-acre, 300,000- plant strawberry field. If one berry per plant is saved over the three-year period the film is left down, it more than pays the cost. One end of the 34-inch wide film is burled at the head of the row and the roll is attached to an improvised jig on the back of a medium tractor, top left. Workers follow behind the tractor to tuck the film in place, and then, with razor blades, cut small slits in the film over the plants,top right. The leaves of the plants are lifted up through the holes, bottom left, and six weeks later, plant foliage covers the plastic enough to hold it down permanently, bottom right. Started Pullets Have Benefits "Started pullets" can offer eith- tr advantages or disadvantages, depending on the farmer's opera tion. They can improve house and .abor efficiency on many poultry farms, says Successful Farming. If buildings are at a premium, all available space can be used for layers. This also lets hired labor concentrate on one major operation, thereby improving efficiency Helpers also will probably do t setter job caring for just layers khan when caring for both grow ing and mature birds at the same time. If chicks must b« grown close to mature birds, the started pullet program has a disease advantage because it isn't wise to grow chicks close to adult birds. Other advantages are that pool- trymen who have trouble raising good pullets might better buy pullets from a reliable grower. And, some poultrymen can buy pullets cheaper than they can raise them. Farm Oil Spraying of Eggs Important Farm spray-oiling of eggi is just as important now as in warm months. Egg quality deteriorates in ,ime, regardless of outside temperature. Oiling lessens loss of moisture and carbon dioxide —. both essential to egg quality.

U863 Jan. 7, H. 21 Dairy Experts Explain Why Butterfat Tests Will Vary Dairy farmers this morning leard a number of reasons why butterfat tests sometimes vary widely from one cow to another and from one time to the next. Ramer Leighton, University of Minnesota extension dairyman, and James Gholson, dairy products specialist, explained these reasons during Farm and Home Week on the St. Paul Campus: 1. Differences between breeds and individual cows, du« to inheritance. 2. Lactation. A cow usually tests ligher early in the lactation and then drops off later on, until late in the lactation when test goes up again.

In general, the specialists laid feeding ha* little to do with fai content or test. However, sudden and extreme changes in feeds may have some temporary effect.

K Let's Visit With Carol Pinnay County Hom« Ag«nf Zipping in o Zipper is Easy ARE YOU one who ha* a dlf fteuU time tewing in a tipper? If you are, don't feel that you are alone, for zippers teem to be a .rouble spot. The home program this year included one lesson on zippers. This was combined with belts, so the two techniques were taught in the same day. The women that at- .ended the lessons liked the new- sr method of putting in zippers shown on the tipper package. Most of them admitted they hadn't taken time to study and practice the* method shown on the zipper packages. There are two main ways of sewing in zippers in dresses and skirts. One is the slot seam method and the other is lapped placket method. The lapped placket is generally used in side warns, and the zipper is hidden by one fold of material. It is used for skirt plackets, blouse plackets and dress plackets. The slot aeam placket has a jalanced closing (the same width lap on each side of the tipper) and is therefore most often used on center seams. This placket is generally preferred for neck and sleeve plackets, back skirt plackets and pocket openings, OF COURSE, there are excep- lions to every rule. • Sometimes skirt fabric may be so bulky or loosely woven that it is impossible to make a lapped placket in the side seam. When placing the zipper in the garment, ease the fabric slightly over the zipper so that the placket will not bucklo. Also, be sure that you have a good %-tnch seam allowance or you will have trouble completely covering the zipper. A well made lapped placket will C smooth, with no wrinkles in it. When the zipper is closed, the zipper teeth will not show and neither will the machine stitching on the back side of the placket. A well made slot seam placket will be smooth with no wrinkles also. The stitching on both sides of the zipper should be equal distance from the middle of the zip- r. When the tipper Is closed, flw teeth of the tipper should hot show. If you have question* about putting in tippers — stop In at the home agent'* offlca In the courthouse, FABRIC BELTS for your dresses are very popular. Even with the newer styles, fabric belt* are still good. The belt should cover th» waistline of the dres*. It should hold in a small amount of ease, but not so much that it 1* apparent. A stiffened belt holds It shape and usually looks better longer than a soft belt. Width of the belt it very 1m portant for the fashion conscious people. A belt one inch or under is considered narrow. In other words, if you want a narrow belt, don't make it wider than one inch. A wide belt is two to three inches wide. At present, we have very few belts that are between one and two inches in width as these are neither wide nor narrow. This does not mean that we never could have a belt that wide, but just that a "narrow" or a "wide" belt is more popular now. Self . covered buckle* are recommended for fabric belts. There are many different kind* of buckles on the market. They are all good, but soma fabric* lend themselves to one type more than another. You will have to try different buckles yourself to see which kind you like the best. Just one more hint on belts- shrink the Interfacing you are using according to fabric demands. Even the stiff belting you buy will shrink — approximately % Inch per yard which is enough to give your belt that "puckered" look Qrosgraln ribbon shrinks about S 4 inches per yard, so for best re- suits — preshrink interfacing*.
