SHEA H -r- - w •' i " T • • - - "r r - -Jd -LL L r - <- t " H By LEO SULLIVAN County fair activities in this section of Illinois move - , L « , into high gear the last week (Galesburg Order Buyers, Inc.) j 0 f this mon th, with three Violations of Livestock Rules Result in Fines One resident each in Hancock and Mercer counties were listed among 12 who recently were convicted of violations of the Illinois Livestock and Swine Regulations, according to a report by Robert M. Schneider, state director of agriculture. Pleading guilty to a charge of bringing feeder pigs into the state without ear tags or permit, John Haig of Niota, was fined $25 and costs. A plea of guilty by DeWayne Mollie of New Boston to a charge of importing steers without permit or health certificate resulted in a total fine oi $30. Among the violators listed in a report by Dr. Paul B. Doby, superintendent of the department's Division of Livestock Industry, were seven Illinois residents, two from Iowa and one each from Tennessee, Nebraska and Kentucky. During the investigation period it was reported 75 to 100 out-of- state trucks were checked for health certificates and numerous inspections were made of licensed dealers' premises. Several investigations still are in progress, it was stated. Hpg numbers moving to mailcet have continued on the light side the past two weeks. The percentage of packing sows in the run has increased, which is normal for early July. It is my observation that we are nearrng the time when more hogS will be coming to market. I have been called to the country a good many times this week to help determine the weights of hogs, as most farmers are anxious to get their hogs marketed as they reach top weight. Most of tho hogs that I saw ranged in weight from 160 to 200, with a few above the 200. The same thing is, no doubt, true over of the hog country and numbers moving to market will probably pick up this next week. In order to insure the best prices later on it should be best to keep your hogs marketed as they reach the top weight. Hogs weighing under 200 pounds will probably be discounted at all markets and hogs weighing up to 230 selling at the top. Top hogs reached $18.75 today in Galesburg, with the bulk of the best Eastern kind selling $18.25 to $18.50. Packing sows sell $15.50 and down. most having July 23 starting dates and two* getting underway July 24. Two of the July 23 starters and regular county fairs, while one operating under the county fair program is a 4 -H Club and Junior Fair, will begin their runs July 24, also being within the latter classification. Fulton County, with fairgrounds at Lewistown, and Mercer County, with Aledo as the location of the fairgrounds, both start July 23 at the full fair level, and continuing until July 27, while the Henderson County Fair, opening the same date at Stronghurst and running two days, will be a 4 -H and Junior Show. Others Noted The July 24 fairs, each continuing three days, are 4 -H and jun- exhibits in Stark County, GALESBURG, ILL., FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1963 PAGE 17 Warren '4-H 9 erg Earn Ratings MONMOUTH The 5-member Warren County Livestock 4-H judging teams earned a B rating at the State 4-H Judging Contest in Urbana on July 2. Members of the team were Wayne Wallace, Irvin Lipp, Steve Miller, Martha Musser and Edgar Hanna. Lrpp and Miller won B ribbons for individual efforts. Approximately 900 4-H Club members from 85 counties took part in this year's contest. They judged in livestock, poultry, dairy and vegetable divisions. A team ribbon was given to counties with Class A and B judging teams. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Oat Varieties Are Discussed MONMOUTH — An agronomy specialist from the University of Illinois, W. D. Pardee, discussed oat varieties on the Don Adkisson farm Monday during a twilight meeting. Pardee said that Garland, a new release from Wisconsin, has good promise for this area. He said it is a sister selection of Dodge and Goodfield, and topped the list in both Urbana and De Kalb yield trials in 1962. A limited amount of seed will be available in 1963. Station Tests Residual Effect of Herbicides (A roundup of the week'js work, activities and observations at the U University of Illinois Dixon Springs Experiment Station near Robbs in southern Illinois, prepared by A. R. Gilmore.) Last year on the station, corn planted in a killed fescue sod produced acceptable yields, but there was some question about the carryover effect of the herbicides used in killing the grass. To test the residual effect of the herbicides used in the study, George McKibben, station agronomist, planted wheat on the entire area. The crop did not show any ill effect from the herbicides applied six months previously. In this test the seedbed was prepared in three different ways: and plow and killed plant, sod; conventional, replicated four times on one-half-acre plots. After the corn had been harvested last fall, the land was disked and wheat was drilled. From each plot a tenth-acre plot was harvested and yields were determined. Wheat averaged 40 bushels per acre on the plow-and-plant plots. These plots had received two pounds of active ingredients of simazine per acre. The conventional plots that had been sprayed once with 2, 4-D yielded 45 bushels per acre. The killed-sod plots that had received four pounds of active ingredients of atrazine per acre also produced 45 bushels per acre. Although wheat yields were nearly the same on all plots, one exception occurred on the conventional-seedbed plots. One of these plots yielded 52 bushels. George believes that it is safe to use these herbicides at the prescribed rates on the relatively light soils (silt loam) encountered in the station area. He said that the residual effects did not appear to be of any consequence in wheat production. Processing Butchering BUTCHERING HOGS AND BEEF 6 PAYS iVERY WEEK.
