Conservation farmer named HAROLD MONTAG Harold Montag, Garfield township, was selected as conservation farmer of the month by the Kossuth Soil Conservation commissioners, according to Julius Baas, chairman. He lives two miles south of West Bend. He first started to contour in 1958, when he had several gullies so large he could not cross them. After contouring the rolling, 52 acres on his farm and using a three year rotation, the gullies have healed and he is starting to get good stands of grass in the natural waterways. He reports that a lot less water is running down the hills now. Contouring allows water to soak into the soil on the hills and soil losses are cut to a bare minimum, It is hard to measure the amount that contouring increases yield, but there is visible proof there is a reduced loss of top soil. He developed his conservation farm plan on his farm in February, 1958, with the assistance of Lyle Riedinger. He plans to add additional conservation practices in the near future, including additional tile drainage, terraces and a new windbreak. The Montag livestock ehter- nrises consist of around 500 feeder pigs,' 50 head of cattle and 1200 laying hens. The Mon- tags have a five year old daughter, Teresa.
