Later generations may become resistant to DDT and be difficult to kill, Harold Gunderson, Iowa State College extension entomologist, said this week. The use of DDT at the right time can make quite a difference in dollars and cents at market time, Gtmderson says. Beef cattle show greater gains when under fly-free conditions and have been known to gain as much as Vi pound more per day when treated with DDT. Tests conducted on Iowa dairy herds last year proved that 12 cents worth of DDT can increase the production of a dairy cow by 200 pounds of milk in a 2 -month period. Use Wettable Powder DDT in the wettable powder or dust form is recommended for most flies, lice,, sheep ticks, bedbugs on poultry, fleas and brown dog ticks. Wettable powder is recommended for all farm uses. Purchase the 50 percent DDT wettable powder and mix it one pound to 12H gallons of water to make a 0.5 percent DDT spray, or two pounds to five gallons of water to make a 2Hi percent DDT spray. Read Directions Oil solutions, usually five percent DDT, are used principally on screens and garbage cans. When dusting, a 10 percent dust usually is used. Sulfur, clay or talc are the usual carriers. In all cases, be sure to read the directions accompanying the chemical, Gunderson recommends. Success in using this method of insect control depends upon the time it is applied and the care used in applying it. WEDNESDAY, JPtT , i weeks before arey are marketed.: Get them fat—that is what makes poultry meat taste good. One fault with poultry from the general Iowa farm is that it is too old when marketed. Whitfield says. This is particularly true in light breeds. Many are staggy. Marketing light breeds at eight to ten weeks is usually more profitable for the producer and gives the consumer better meat. Whitfield also says that Iowa pro. ducers should market their birds more frequently. Rather than sell the birds at one time, pick out the larger ones as soon as they are finished. That way the birds with the highest finish will be sold.

COLLISION When Irvin Miene of Waukon set the brakes of his truck on highway 9 near Lansing recently, he started an ususual "chain reaction. Just behind him, a second truck also rolled to a stop; a third truck ran into the second truck and a fourth truck crashed into the third truck. Put a higher finish on meat birds, is the advice given poultrymen by W. R. Whitfield, extension poultry- man at Iowa State College. He points out that a high percentage of Iowa poultry is taken to market before it is finished. This is reflected in a lower price, fewer top grade birds and a subsequent lack of demand. In areas where buying is done by grade the producer will make more money by selling high quality meat on that basis. Too, consumers prefer No. 1 grade birds and Whitfield thinks it unwise to discourage demand of good poultry. Here are some of Whitfield's suggestions on how to grow chickens quickly and- fatten them for best finish. Give them enough room but don't permit them to have too much- exercise. A small sized pen such as the brooder house and sun porch is ideal. When birds previously have had free range, don't pen them up j for fattening. Changing conditions may cause them to go oft* teed and lose weight. Neither do crowded chickens eat or drink in sufficient quantities. Feeding also affects finish. Whitfield says to self-feed mash and grain. Heavy breeds should be given shelled corn and whole oats at eight weeks of age if they are to be finished at 12 to 14 weeks. Light breeds such at Leghorns and Leghorn crosses to be sold at ten weeks should be fed grain earlier, permitting them to have grain two The State Conservation Commission stated today that preliminary examination of pheasant census data and information from farmer interviews show that the 1948 spring pheasant population was slightly higher than that of the previous year. All parts of the state, except the northwest district, showed some increase over the 1947 count. Except for possible damage by recent heavy rains and a few hail storms, weather conditions have been ideal for nesting this season. Nesting activities began from ten days to two .weeks earlier than usual, while most farmers were a week to ten days later than normal in making their alfalfa cuttings. This allowed many hens to bring oft their broods before the hay was cut. Reports on broods of young pheasants indicate a high number of birds per brood.
