R M J A N U A R Y , 1 9 4 5 Surplus Expected bring Year rfullryzrien face a big egg Mus this year, even though junction is expected to con- its slight downward trend, p. Oderkirk, extension ieting . specialist at Iowa »e college, predicts it is un- j ly that any subsidy will be fii producers to^sell layers off Jtis, howjever, but that reli- j3s for support of prices prob- 3£ wiU be placed upon gov- ^pient purchases as in previ- ic years. ijlaln difficulty promises to we from the fact that Eovern- needs probably will drop j'n more than production is 1 T Io\v» goals are calling for Adorers to reduce (heir ees upnt IS per cent during the ;Tir. ,"put costs and supplies, par- Jtularly those of feed, are ex- 4»:ted to i m p r o v e . These Janges, coupled.with the floor jjpport under egg prices given If the SteagaH amendment,- will y.Vite continued large produc- in in most parts of the coun- y Oderkirk . feels, that If egg oductton is not reduced sizably 1945, civilian demand will it lie able to absorb the sup- alone. Large exports of shell dried tegs may be needed l an outlet, since a stockpile of fried eggs has been accumulal- ,, which will be sufficient to ill anticipated lend - lease re- /uirements. I The poultry meat outlook is Sright. Oderkirk says that an mproved feed situation for market poultry should make re- lUlts more favorable this year, ind the civilian consuming mar- cel will absorb all poultry supplies offered. Armed force demands, both overseas and- in the Unitec States, may necessitate the government taking over large stocks of poultry in storage and commercial producing a r e a s during the' next 6 months. Access to Legume ·lay Is Suggested E. L. Quaife, Iowa State col- ege swine specialist, suggests hat both sows and, gilts should ave free access to some good egume hay such as alfalfa or lover, but it must be of good uality. Free access to minerals and /ater are 2 other Important fac- ors in good sow feeding. A suit- ble mineral mixture for the rood sow would be 40 pounds Unestone, 38 pounds steamed bone meal, 20 pounds salt, 2 sounds iron oxide and 1/3 ounce potassium iodide. Water, free rom ice and snow, should be in sheltered spot if at all possible. It's a good idea to feed at east a part of the sow's feed some distance from her sleep- ng quarters. Trips back and orth wiU help give the sow her needed exercise. Place orders lor commercia fertilizer early because the supply is generally short.

And B. MacDonald, head of the orestry department at Iowa itate college, says it's not too early to plan, spring plantings and to order trees for wind- weaks, Shelterbelts should be located ;o as to give desired wind pro- tection; however, their location should not be such as to interfere with routine farm work Usually the sheltering trees should be at least 100 feet back from important buildings to prevent inconveniences from drifting snow. Good Corn Market Is Hogs on Place Local farmers who are looking for a profitable market for their corn crop will find it in the hogs they've still got on the Place. That, in a nutshell, is the good news that comes with the new government order raising the ceiling on heavy hogs to ?14.75. Chicago basis.
