tver Prices Hi n Market in Veek Fulton Sale Of Livestock By LEONARD If. WOODS (Galesburg Order Buyers, Inc.) A fairly active demand for hogs at lower prices has been the story of this week's hog market. The dressed pork market has not been too bad but has worked just a little lower. There is more pork in storage than a year ago. Probably packers have not yet built up a working " force to slaughter the increased number of hogs. Hogs are moving to market in greater numbers and at heavier weights than was expected. Hog prices are under a year ago and probably are lower than trade expectations. Producers and packers alike would like to see . i j i . hog prices stabilize somewhere Club reported a large patronage ar0und present i cve ] g# B ut in or- to the count of nearly 600 at its der to move k Mo consump _ barbecue pork chop meal Mon- u gome jce concessions are day at the Biggsvdle ball dia- behlg ma d e .

This study indicates that the amount of shade influences both the kind and the number of broadleaf weeds as well as the presence of several weedy grasses. Generally, Snodsmith reported, the number and weight of the weeds decreased as the light decreased. Study Effects Researchers studied the effects of various levels of shade on creeping red fescue, Merion Kentucky bluegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, Highland bentgrass and perennial ryegrass. Saran cloth ot varying densities provided shade of about 30, 63 and 92 per cent for the study. Grasses were also tested under full sunlight. In addition to differences in number and weight of weeds, a difference in sample weight among seeded grasses existed. Sample weights were taken from the plots in July and October. Generally, creeping red fescue produced the least and Poa tri- vialis the most weight at the various shade levels. Snodsmith pointed out that several factors might have influenced this weight difference. The other four grass weights were distributed between these two. When all the grasses were considered together, they wei ghed most in July at 63 per cent shade and in Oct. at 30 per cent shade. The least weight .occurred at 92 per cent shade on both sampling dates.
