Some 70 persons spent a full afternoon Friday looking over the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation Tour and Fish Shocking Demonstration. The tour began on the John Hamman farm operated by Dean Smith near London Mills. There the group saw the effect of using a properly constructed broad base surface drain. On the Alfred Morey farm, a diversion terrace is being used on a long slope to divert water in an attempt to prevent gullying, and to allow a field to be more heavily farmed. On the Charles Hart farm the group saw a concrete dam and grass waterway designed to prevent a gully from washing back into the farmstead, and a second dam was observed in the construction stage on the Alva Davis farm; Lowell Buck, north of Avon, is using a farm pond to provide water for cattle on pasture, and has followed an extensive pasture improvement program that has helped his beef production program. Also in the Avon area, the group saw a 12-inch tile line project being laid to drain a "seepy" area on the Ernest Teach farm. On the adjoining Eldon Dallefeld farm, a concrete block dam used to prevent gullying, establish a tile line outlet and grass waterway cover was noted. Parallel terraces and grass waterway construction have allowed E. R. Canto use more acres in row-crop rotation without losing soil. The tour concluded on the Curtis Strode farm in Harris Township with the fish pond management demonstration. Strode stocked his pond as recommended several years ago. The shocking demonstration indicated that this pond was well stocked from the bass and blue gills obtained. Al Lipinot from the State Dept. of Conservation told the touring group that ponds should be stocked with recommended fish because this is not the natural habitat for fish. In normal habitats, rough fish keep the others in proper balance. In farm ponds, catfish and rough fish often throw a pond out of balance, thus reducing the number of large fish. Lipinot also pointed out that most ponds are underfished, and that the food supply determines game fish size because they continue growing throughout their life. Lipinot also discouraged the use of fertilizers in Illinois because STUN FISH—Keith Mueller, Fulton County soil conservationist, dips stunned fish for Al Lipinot, State Department of Conservation, in farm pond fish management demonstration on the Curtis Strode farm near Marietta. The demonstration was a feature of the Fulton County soil and water conservation tour Friday. fanrierg normally use an ample amount on crops, and during rainy periods the fertilizers drain into the ponds supplying enough fertility. Robert Walker of the University of Illinois' College of Agriculture, told the group that good conservation practices are needed if soil and water resources are to meet a predicted American population of 500 million. To feed this number of persons, it is necessary to begin now to preserve natural resources, he said. Information on farm pond man­ agement can be obtained from the Fulton County Soil Conservation District office in Lewistown, or from Leo Sharp, Fulton County Farm Adviser, in Canton. The tour was part of a cooperative project between the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Soil Conservation Service, County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, the Agricultural Extension Council and Cooperative Extension Service of the College of Agriculture, University of Illinois.
