For farmers who do not have permanent silos, temporary silos are the easy, inexpensive, practical solution to the soft corn problem. Trench silos are usually more satisfactory than other types, although more labor is required to dig them, says C. H. Van Vlack, agricultural engineer at Iowa State College. The farm population in the United States in January, 1947, was 27,500,000, according to a report of the federal Bureau of-Agricultural Economics. « * * * * If you want more eggs from your hens this winter, put lights in the laying house. ALFALFA SEED DOWN IN PRICE, RED CLOVER UP The most drastic change in the outlook for legume seed for next year's planting is the difference between red clover and alfalfa prices. Prices to growers for red clover seed are higher than at any time since 1919. A rise of $4.50 per hundred pounds from Oct. 15 to Nov. 15 brought the price up to $47.83. Chief reason for this is the reduction in carryover supplies, according to Ed Dyas, extension agronomist at Iowa State College. Growers were receiving $24.17 per hundred pounds for alfalfa seed on Nov. 15, $1.34 more than a month earlier. Alfalfa seed prices are down from 1946, even though this year's production is under last year, Dyas says, because carryover is higher than usual. Dyas emphasizes that care should be taken in purchasing alfalfa seed. If it is produced in the southern area, it is not hardly under Iowa conditions. Production of northern and central-grown seed, which is adapted to our conditions, is down 11 percent from last year. Under such price conditions, it is a good opportunity to build up our alfalfa acreage, Dyas suggests. Alfalfa can also be mixed with red clover on soils that are well-drained or are not acid. BEEF OUTPUT TO BE CUT MORE THAN PORK IN '48 Low-priced seed may prove'cost­ ly in the long run. Pay enough to get a good grade of clean seed when buying grass and legume seed for next year's planting, says E. P. Sylwester, Iowa State College plant pathologist. * • • • • One hundred hens will eat more than 4>/4 tons of feed each year.

M Beef output seems headed for a sharper cut in 1948 than pork, with the result that cattle prices may again be high, relative to hog prices, in coming years, predicts Francis Kutish, Iowa State College farm economist. Kutish points out that cattle numbers are down and will probably continue to decline the next few years. There are about 8 million fewer head in the country now than at the January 1945 peak. Most of this drop has been in the western Corn Belt and the southern and western states. Slaughter of steers will set a new record during 1947, says Kutish. Cow numbers are down, too, but there are still enough beef cows to make a large calf crop in 1948. There won't be as many big cattle coming off ranges next year, however. This decline will mean a shrinking beef output for several years, Kutish thinks. Cow and heifer slaughter, especially, will slump once farmers and ranchers start rebuilding their herds. Overcrowding your laying flock reduces egg production. PROOF OF WILL. To All Whom It May Concern: Notice is hereby given that an Instrument purporting to be the last Will and Testament of Harold H.
