Proper Feeding Of Herd Aids in Control of Scours UTTLR ROCK, Ark-, Jan. 13— Cattle owners can RO a long way toward preventing h<'avy calf losses this 'j,inter by following approved feeding and sanitation practices to ; avoid calf scours in (heir herds, the American Foundation for Aani- mal Health advised yesterday. A Foundation bulletin gave these pointers o n controlling scours, whu'h Is rated as on? of the nation's NO. 1 calf-killers: "Rpmember there nre two types of scours. One kind is due to [ digestive upset.s, while the other Is j contagions, and may sweep swiftly j through a herd, "The noii-infectious type usually \ i.s brought on by overfeeding, ferd- ' ing from dirty n tonsils, irregular ceding, sudden change of feed, or "hilling. In some cases, it is caused by the milk itself. "At lhr> first .sign of trouble, owners shonUi ohtnin a veterinary diag- uosis to tk'U'rinine which type o( scours Is present. As R safely measure, the .scouring calves' rations should be cut in half, until a course of treatment is worked out. "Infoi-tirm.s, or white scours Is nueh more dangerous than the type caused by digestive upsets, 1'h* 1 healthy calves should be immediately teotatcd from the sick ones. Quarters which have housed ick animals should be scrnbl>?d out with a lye .solution, and the litter lioulci be burned." Core in Planting Of Trees Urged By Horticulturist MAGNOLIA. Ark.. Jan. 13—Trees can be set any time up until February 15 with best results. Laron E. Golden, instructor of horticulture at State A<fcM College, here, suggested this week. Be sure, however, the ground h ^,?ood rendition for planting, he W-^ed. The latter part of January is probably the best time for planting. "In spacing trees on terrace land contour-of the land miist he considered," he said. "Placo the tree.-; at least 20 fret apart in more fertile colta." Where the block system of planting is used. Golden advised sparing the trees 25 feet apart. "Dig the holes two feet deep and rge enough to extend at least X or eight inches beyond the xprwd of the roots. .Then place several Inches of good top soil In the bottom of the hole." Never mix- barnyard manure or Crrlih/.er with the srril around the roots, he warned. This may cause severe burning and the trees uill often die in hot. weather. Golden recommends examining the roots of each tree and cutting away the bruised or broken portions. He discourages placing all the trees In ready-prepared hales before-any are covered. This allows roots to dry out. Place only ft y.- trees at a time he ndvi^rs.'anri complete their planting before placing any more tiecs.
