Others may need only contouring and terracing in addition to what they are al- rearty practicing, while still others may nerd a complete re-vamping of their entire program. EACH FARMER decide for himself the rotation and practices he will use, a.s well ax how he will use the grain and forage that is producsd. In some cases, if the primary purpose of the enterprise is the production of prain for sale it may be most profitable to utilize all or at least part of the forage produced to plow under. IT IS TN helping ths farmer make these decisions wisely and in helping to get them on the land that the SM Conservation District serves its primary purpose. In doing this job it utilizes the services of the U. 3. s-jjl Conservation Service, whk:h maintains two full-time and one part-time technician here in Greene county. They are: F.-ancis Beyer, Jack Haupert, and Tom Lynch. ANY FARMER in the county may become a district cooperator by signing a Cooperative Agreement With the district, thereby agreeing to use their land within it.? capaoil- ities and treat it according to its needs. The district in return agrees to heip him any way it can. MR ZEPP added that further information abou: the district's program may be obtained from him or the other two commissioners, Walter Barrett of Jefferson and Elvon Hatch of Scranton: from the assistant commissioners, Harry Glmve of Dana. Harley Dillavou of Hagley, and Harold Hyndrrun of Churdan: from the SC3 personnel; or from our county extension director. Wayne Canine. These services are available without char;:e, although contributions are welcome to pay for items the district needs which cannot be paid for from public funds. • « • * ONE AN T D four-'.r-nrhs miles of t-'-rraces h:\ve been laid on: on three farms in the county during the last few days, according to Francis Beyer, SC3 technician here In Greene county: Bob Smith. living two miira northo.iit of Scranton. is building 0.4 mile: Keith Peterson, three miles southwest of Scranton. 0 .' miles; and Bob Frederick, four mile.'; northeast of Eajtiey, 07 mile.

As per normal on opening day there were more hunters than ducks. However, there were several hunters who shot their limits of small ducks such as teal. I was lucky enough to get four Oreenwing teal, and Dan Powers, who was hunting with me, bagged three leal and one mallard. The mallard turned out to be banded. Dan removed the band and sent it to the Federal Fish and Wildlife Dept. in Washington, D.C. The information gained by the return of these bands is of the greatest importance to the men who follow the migration habits of the ducks. If you should shoot a bird with one of these bands on the leg. DO NOT FAIL TO SEND IT TO THE FISH & WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT, WASHINGTON, D.C. Tell them where and when you shot the duck. 3 TTffi JEFFERSON BEE Jefferson, Iowa, Oct. 11, 1955 It is not always the number of ducks that, you get, that counts the most. The joy nnd satisfaction of living in a country that will nllow its citizens to carry a gun in the creat out-of-doors and enjoy the sport of hunting is worth more thnn all the ducks that ever flew across the skies. Quality has everything in its favor including the price. Tomorrow is the greatest laborsaving device of today. Some folks might say that it just can't be done. *%£££&?£%&£"?wi' Bul ' am o"' »- 1 ™-' ->'» Hospital in Des Moines on Tuesday) until I have tried.

According to Sam, there is an When Feeder Cattle Arrive On The Farm Feeder cattle arriving on the farm need rest and sperial attention if they are to adjust properly. An article in October's Successful Farming magazine says such cattle should be placed in a small pasture or dry lot for a few days, and given hay and other dry feed. The animals should also be kept separate for a week or two from animals already on the farm. The younger the cattle, the longer will be the rest period required. Droopy or listless animals should be checked by a veterinarian.
