Cash receipts from farm market­ ings of Iowa crops and livestock reached record totals during the first nine months of 1947, according to figures just released by the United States Department of Agriculture. Iowa once again is undisputed leader in the nation in agricultural production and income. Total income to Iowa farmers increased 54% over 1946 while the average increase for the nation as a whole was 21%. The figures for farm income for the first nine months of 1947 show receipts from livestock and products as $1,387,071,000 as compared to $936,774,000 in 1946. Cash receipts from crops this year total $309,892,000 against $160,125,000 in 1946. California is given second place in the agricultural sweepstakes of the country. In the past ten years Iowa and California have run neck and neck for the number one position in agricultural income with Iowa leading five times and California leading five times. From the standpoint of. productivity and income per acre Iowa is unchallenged leader because it has only about one-third the total acreage of California and yet it tops the western state in total farm income. California also has the advantage of semi tropical climate which enables it to produce two and three vegetable crops a year. Iowa's leadership in the production of the seven basic foods most essential to adequate nutrition and good health is also undisputed. For many years Iowa has produced 10% of the nation's total in these seven basic foods. Agricultural income for 1947 in Iowa holds promise of becoming the largest in the history of the nation. Following is a record of Iowa cash farm income for the past ten years: 1938 $ 561,993,000 1939 573,633,000 1940 667,134,000 1941 868,643,000 1942 1,215,574,000 1943 1,574,059,000 1944 1,577,589,000 1945 1,503,176,000 1946 : i.. 1,793,747,000 1947 (1st 9 Months) 1,696,963,000 MOTORS—I do all kinds of motor repairing, re-winding and reconditioning.

Experienced foresters especially recommend that the windbreak area be fall plowed, since trees grow best in mellow, well-prepared soil. Farmers should cull every hen or pullet which isn't laying well. This means culling one out of every five birds in their flocks, Iowa State College poultry specialist say. And they should cull_so that the flock will contain at least 80 percent pullets.
