Majoring in German, -he is on the Arts-Seminary course, and plans to enter Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuquc, Iowa. by Dean Barnes, Co. Ext. Director * . * * The corn planting season is in full swing now. Corn planting is sort of the highlight time of year here in Kossuth county. Everything else for the whole year sort of directly or indirectly revolves around getting the corn planted. * * * Here are some interesting facts in regard to artificiarbreeding of cattle. Nearly 5% million cows were bred artifically in the U. S. in 1955. Iowa ranks 6th among the 48 stales in number with 311,651 cows served. Of all the bulls used in all the associations, 36 percent had been officially proved by the U.S.D.A. The daughters of these bulls produced 690 pounds more milk and 40 pounds more butterfat than their dams in the herds in which they are proved. * * * Went up to Art Baker's farm the other day to build a stile over the fence so people can get in to see our oat variety plot. The plot is next to the Good Hope Church. Art and I got our posts, 2x4's spade, etc., together and went over. Rev. Paul Hanson, pastor of the church, came out and gave us a hand. Just as we were finishing up Fred Plumb drove in. Fred went over the stile and said it was O.K. and that if it would hold him up it would hold anyone. * * • The County Beef Producer's Association directors are planning a cattle feeders tour in the southeastern area of the county for June 1. Each June the association sponsors a cattle feeders tour and they are very educational and attract a large group of people. Put June 1 down on your calendar and hold the day open. Watch the papers for further information later on. » * * Grain sorghum is about 90% the equal of corn as livestock feed. Sorghum grains are low in vitamins A and D. They are also low in calcium. They have slightly more protein than corn, but less fat. Sorghum grain requires a supplement which will balance the ration in these nutrients. They should be coarse ground or cracked for the best results. SEXTON NEWS There must be ; a pretty hard working bunch around this town or else a newcomer is just setting a good example. Elmer Phillips retired here to an acreage in the country and • has already started driving truck for Wilford Ward at the local elevator. Welcome home to Mrs Bud Elberts who has visited the past three weeks with a sick aunt in. Wisconsin. Another familiar figure around town has been missing most of the past two weeks. August Kirschbaum has spent much of the lime in bed but hopes the welcome summer weather will take care of some of the pain. Mrs Leo Kirschbaum suffered a painful knee dislocation. It was especially unhandy since her job at the Drive-in Theatre takes a lot of walking. NOW that Mrs Elberts is home don't think her and Arch Burger are starting a duel if they should both walk down the railroad tracks armed with knives. It's just, asparagus hunting time again and these two are the early birds in hunting it down in the track area. With the warm weather arriving, school almost out and youngsters turned out to pasture it's also time for the yearly plea for better driving through town. Not even a watchful adult would have much chance with some of the highway speed demons who persist in ignoring the speed limit sot for the town. The big question now is what is that most eligible young bachelor going to do with all the furniture bought at the local household sale. The greatest inland transportation system in the world is the Great Lakes, with 1,160 miles from the west end of Lake Superior to the outlet of Lake Ontario. Tuesday, May 22, 1956 Algona (la.)
