10 M a s o n C i t y G l o b e - G a z e t t e K olumn omments Eggs should be gathered at least twice daily in wire baskets. When they are cool, they are placed small end down in the ~egg case. Keeping the eggs in the basement or cellar, if it is free from odors, helps maintain egg quality. Market at least twice weekly. Some dairy bulls need a small amount of grain along with an abundance of good roughage, while others do very well on little or no grain and a limited amount of roughage. About G pounds of grain per day to the bulls of the larger breeds and 5 pounds daily to Guernsey and Jersey bulls should be sufficient. The amount of silage fed the bull ' should be limited. When raspberry plants for spring planting arrive, the roots should be protected from drying out. Soak the ro.ots in water TOP PRICES PAID FOR HIDES WOOL WOLF BROS. INC. 308 5»h S. W. overnight. If planting must be delayed, open the bundle and cover the roots with soil. Oats seed may be cleaned at home with a small farm fanning mill and treated in any one of the homemade grain treaters, such as the barrel treater or the Minnesota gravity treater. Information on constructing the Minnesota treater may be obtained by writing to the Iowa State college extension service at Ames and asking for pamphlet P. D. 420. Inoculation of -soybeans is cheap insurance to increase yields. It is especially important on fields where soybeans are being grown for the first time. Many farmers re-inoculate where only one crop was raised previously, or where soybeans have not been grown for several years. About 132 Pounds of Meat for Each Person During '44 The meat share for each civilian in 1944 should be 132 pounds, nn increase of 6 pounds over the average per capita in the prewar years of 1D35 to 1939. Civilians will receive about two- thirds of the total production. Half of the other third of the meat supply goes to the United States military and war services. The rest, with the exception of about 4 per cent that is set aside as an emergency reserve, goes to our allies, other friendly nations, Red Cross and United States territories.

Not only will profits be ncreased but there will be an in- reased amount of milk and meat or the war food program. Experiments have shown that le cattle grub reduces milk pro- uction 10 per cent and reduces he gains of beef cattle 50 per ent during the time the grub is merging. Robert Findson, director of .ake township Farm Bureau, an- lounced that 6 demonstrations vill be held in the township be- inning on the afternoon of March 22 when the first demon- tration will be held at the Axel 'liomsen home in district No. 4, t 1 p. m. The second will be leld that same day at "the H. C. iubbard home in district No. 7, t 2 p. m. and the third at the Chris Luymes home in district ·Jo. 6 at 3 p. m. The second series of demon- trations will be held on Thur's- ay, March 23, starting at 1 p: n. at the Phil Sheridan home in istrict 3; the second demonstra- ion will be at the Robert Fureigh home in district 2 at 2 p. n. and the third at the C.

According to a bulletin on cat- le grub control published by o\va State college, "The only radical time to attack this pest s after it has cut a hole in the Tide. The easiest control measure consists of applying a 5 per ent rotenone dust to the backs }f infested cattle. "A cheap, effective duster is made by punching 8 to 10 quar- er-inch holes in the lid of a quart jar. One pound of dust vill treat 12 to 18 head once at a cost of 3'/z cents a head. Two r more treatments are needed at 30 to 40 day intervals." FARM BUREAU OFFICERS 'resident ..... Ed Malhre. Mason Clly Vice Pres. Melvin B. Hawks. Sheffield SecretarylWillard Fulgtuim.

Sprole, Ma son City Farmers Can Test Seed Oats at Home Cerro Gordo county farmers who have not had their seed oats .esled may wish to run a simple germination test of their, own. Directions for making this test were received this week by bounty Extension Director Marion E. Olson from R. H. Porter, iiead of the Iowa State college seed laboratory. About 10 days ire required for the test. Porter recommends that farmers obtain a representative sample of their oats, getting a handful from each of several parts of the bin and mixing them together. From this bulk sample, a small sample should be selected. Two hundred grains are planted in moist sand to a depth of about 1 inch or are rolled in a moist paper towel or cloth. The seed is germinated at GO to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. If germination falls below 80 per cent, it would be well to look for another source of seed for 1944 planting. The seed analyst also stales that the newer varieties. Boone, Tama, and Vicland, are dormant at harvest and even though iri excellent condition, will not give complete germination until well along toward spring. However, farmers can test seed of these varieties by breaking the dormancy. The kernels to be tested should be held at 50 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 to 4 days after being placed in the moist sand or the moist cloth. Following this, the temperature should be moved up to 60 to 65 degrees and maintained there for 10 days. The laboratory has found that approximately one-fourth of the samples of seed oats tested have been unfit for seed, Porter reports. He says that wet weather, dampness when binned and mold were among the reasons for the condition of the unfit samples. Farm Bureau Briefs Lake township Farm Bureau will meet Wednesday noon at the Don Blair home. Union township Farm Bureau will meet at Lakeside church Wednesday evening. D o c t o r George Senior, federal veterinarian, will give a lecture, including slides, on poultry and livestock diseases. Arthur J. Petit, field supervisor, emergency crop and feed loan office, will be at the county extension office in the Federal building at Mason City on Friday morning, March 24, to interview those interested in obtaining an emergency feed and seed loan. During the past 4 years, Iowa farmers have used over 5 million tons of ground limestone to correct soil acidity. Finance Your Farm Home the Cooperative Federal Land Bank Way Then you will trove! the safest and most economical way to home ' ownership. Of all the mortgaged farms in Iowa 36% of therfr-are with the Federal Land Bank and Land Bank Commissioner. This is remarkable when one considers the many other lenders in the field. Why is this? It is because farmers naturally enjoy supporting an institution of their own creation. It hos meant their Declaration of Independence from the old time worn principle that the "borrower is servant of the lender." Having created this independence with their own influence and great efforts some 27 years ago, they now feel it is just as important to preserve and maintain it. Let us'continue to be loyal to ourselves and to agricultural interests in general. This is our watchword.
