MILLS COUNTY FARM BUREAU NEWS wu PholHs $44 Aftcfrc* nf&s Ulit^Stl Question* Atked Oft Corn-Hog Plan fr&i nf School* Now Being eld ill All P Cetrtity ot questions regarding the corn-hog contract and administrative rulings covering the contract are asked each day at the training schools new being held in alt parts of Mills county, One ot the questions frequently asked Is: "Can a contract be signed by a producer for torn ot bogs aionef The answer is tbat, In general, no. But there are exceptions: tt a hog producer's i*8f-8S litters were less than four, for example, he does not have to reduce hog production, though he tnay sign a contract, bnt be is not eligible for hog redaction payments. And If the producer's 1933-33 litters were less than three he Is not eligible to receive a hog benefit payment. It a producer's 1932-83 average corn acreage Is less than 10 acres he does not have to reduce production and is not eligible for corn reduction payment, though be tnay sign a contract. In any case where the average corn acre- sue is 10 or more acres and the average number ot Utters is more than three, a producer must reduce both corn and hogs, according to the rulings. Producers who do not intend to plant corn in 1134 may sign a contract and receive benefit payments for not more than 30 per cent ot their reduction, and, tn tbe ease of hogs, they may receive benefit payments for not more than 36 per cent of their reduction, unless otherwise auth- orised to do so by tbe secretary ot agriculture. The producer also must agree that the farm under contract will be operated through out 1134. A person who owns sows "loaned" to other producers under an agreement tbat he retains ownership and will get back the sows and a certain number of pigs at a later date, cannot include tbe Utters from such sows in his 1933 33 litter*. This is because he does not own tbe Utter* when farrowed and because tbe Utter* are not farrowed on land owned and operated by him. Such bogs, bow- ever, may be included in tbe 1933-33 litter* ot tbe producer, providing • he owned tbe litter* when farrowed. f'* farm.tbat will be idle or abandoned in 1934 may not be covered by a contract. A stock-share tenant is qualified to sign a contract it bis landlord signs and tbe crop-share tenant who rents all of bia land from one landlord will also obtain tbe signature of the landlord,. In the case of a producer who operates a farm composed of land rented from different landlords, a contract may be signed: 1. Providing tbe contracted acres are located on land owned or rented for cash by tbe producer and not on the land rented tor share. i, If tbe contracted acres'are located on one of the tracts of land rented on shares, in which case the landlord of that tract must sign tbe contract with tbe tenant, and will receive a share ot the corn reduction payment, Such,a producer, however, will Drtgn separate contracts it any of the.contracted acres are to be located on the land rented on abares from two or more landlords. Moving from one farm to another does not affect the producer's eligibility to sign a contract. A landlord may enter into contract covering a farm rented to a«4 operated by a crop-share tenant, providing the tenant Tilling and providing any of tbe contracted acres are located on the landlord'* land, A landlord may sign a contract Covering a farm for which a tenant bM not yet been obtained. If ha fall* to §et a tenant be may «B»r*tt the tism and get reduc, tjon pajrmeuti providing be ba* producer on that part of tfie fatw he operates and another contract aa landlord on that part of his farm wMeh Is rented. A contract-signer win not Increase the number of feeder »tgs he buys In 1934 shore the adjusted aterage for 19X2 And 1833 according to the rulings. Another question frequently asked in regard to eligibility for signing contracts is, "Are ant other hog producers except those who buy feeder pigs and do not raise any ot their own eligible to obtain hog redaction payments?" Yes, there are: 1. Producers who raise hogrs entirely or largely upon the open ranre. J. Producers who raise hogs under conditions which make impossible the determination ot number ot litters farrowed and hogs produced from such litters. 3. Producers who raise hop under conditions which make adequate checking of performance Impossible. 4. Producers whose 193Z-38 Utters are less than three.

Mills Soil Erosion is Costly to Farmers Bet Ch»tfe<J tbe of the ten, Teat* Show Great Need for Employing Method* of Control Although the national program tor soil conservation la only four years old It has already brought to the attention ot tbe country many startling facts. Test* have shown for instance that washing rains take 30 times as much plant food from the soil aa i* actually used by crops. Still more alarming t* tbe knowledge, brought out by surveys of the United States Department of Agriculture, that large losses of soil are taking place on almost every Important soil type in tbe country. On tbe basis of experiment* at the 10 regional stations, specialists of the Department estimate that not less than one and one- halt billion tons of soil are washed out of the fields of the United States every year. Results thus far indicate that in norma times the direct cost of this enormous loaa of soil amounts to not less than $400,000,000 annually The farmers pay this bill. Knowledge of the colossal damage o: soil erosion has hastened the dis covery of new methods of control and improvement ot old methods. Strip cropping —the growing of thick crops, such as sorghum grass, or alfalfa in strips along the contours between clean-cultl vated crops ™ is a recent devel opment of great value in erosion control, Older methods ot saving soil such an terracing, are receiving renewed emphasis. I n Texas alone farmers are terracing a mil lion acres of land a year. There is also a notable Increase In soil saving by cover cropping and by crop rotation that do not leave the soil at the mercy of wind and water. Small gullies are being checked by the use of inexpensive dama made of waste fertilizer bags filled with sod. Dams made ot logs, atones or brush are also effective and inexpensive. Those employers who bad tbelr taken from them, toy fHROOOH their county corn-hog * control aitoctationi. American farmers can follow th* pathway to Increased purchasing power for corn aod hogs. Under the corn-bog reduction plan, they can organise to coo* trot production and they wilt recefte tbe tall benefits for their efforts. Although the Agricultural Adjaot- ment Administration Is charged by taw with tae responsibility ot direct- Ing ths eotn-hog reduction program, the actttt sign-up of contracts and the local administration will be In ths hand! of tbe corn-hog Control associations which will be organised in major corn-producing eoofltios by contract signers.
