Dairying is vital Industry in Iowa Although Iowa has fewer and fewer dairy farmers, output of milk per cow is increasing steadily, and dairying continues to be a stable and dependable source of fnrm income. Dairy cow numbers in Iowa are now down to about 750,000 after numbering a million head 10 years ago. But the farm value of Iowa milk and cream amounts to nearly $200 million annually -- a sub­ sternal part of annual farm receipts. Because of our relatively low population, only about one-fifth of the dairy output is consumed as Grade A, fluid milk. Almost three- fourths of Iowa's milk is utilized for manufacturing purposes. It is made into butter, cheese, ice cream and the other non-fluid dairy products. Because Iowa dairymen must depend on out-of-state markets, this state has been a long-time leader in the matter of supporting national sales and promotion efforts for dairy foods as developed by American Dairy Association. An estimated fiOplus per cent of our butter is sold and consumed beyond state lines. With the disappearance of dairy cows from thousands of Iowa farmst the trend has been toward building larger herds in the operation of farms now s |>ecinlizing. in dairying. Paralleling this trend has been the increased use of on-farm cooling and storage equipment designed to handle bulk milk under modern sanitation conditions. Although northeast Iowa continues as the dairying center of the state, substantial milk output is being continued in most all counties. The manufactured milk and cream is marketed through a network of creameries, the fluid milk through cooperative dairy associations in the major cities and through local dairies in all communities. Dairy farmers are highly valued consumers in their home areas. A dairy farm uses about three times the average farm's requirement of electrical power. It requires high investment in specialized machinery and equipment, housing for cattle, hay storage. Dairying also involves the purchase of high quality feeds, animal biologies and veterinary services. Dairymen are good for a community. Dairymen work Together to build Dairy markets 'Hie very foundation of June Dairy Month begins with the dairy farmer himself. Without the dairymen, neither milk nor dairy dollars would flow through the channels of trade. In fact, the keeper of the cows not only keeps the cows but depends on the cows to keep him and his family throughout the year. How well the cows keep the farm family depends upon how good arc the markets and how great is thu demand for milk and milk prod ucts. "United for new sales horizons!" This is the battle cry of the nation's dairy farmers as they seek to maintain and build markets for America's rising flood of milk production in the face of the greatest market competition ever known. June Dairy Month is one of many promotions sponsored by the association throughout the year in the interest of greater consumption and use of milk and its products. This is a complete promotion of market research, advertising, nutrition and product research, ed­ ucation, home economics test kitchen, merchandising and public relations. This promotion program is financed by a set-aside of two cents per 100 lbs. of milk, largely on a voluntary basis, collected at the dairy plant where the producer delivers milk. Now 22 years old. the movement has grown from membership in six states to 4!) states. Tin's growth has lx-c-n accomplished through years of war and peace, scarcity and abundance of prod nets, depression and boom. Dairy farmers are doing together what no individual could do alone. Dwarf apple tree growth Is not too difficult Planting and training young dwarf and semidwarf apple trees isn't as difficult as many persons think, says Horticulturist A. K. Cott in the April issue of Iowa Farm Science, monthly publication of Iowa State university. The pruning task calls mainly for a little imagination, he says, p.'; ; 10 p< r rent "know how" and 90 per cent "courage." Just as soon as you bring your dwarf or semidwarf apple trees home from the nursery or receive them by mail, he advises, open the package and check the packing material around the roots. The packing material should be well moistened, but not soaking wet. If it is only slightly moist, add water to moisten it. Then carefully rewrap the package so that the roots will not dry out. Store the trees in a cool place Cat 30 to .15 degrees Fahrenheit if possible) until you can plant them. Plant the treus ns soon as possible after you get them If the ground is frozen or too wet. wait until it thaws or dries enough to work the soil without packing. You can get further details in reprints of the arucie. Ask for FS 961, "Dwarf Apple Trees. Planting and Pruning." from the Publications Distribution Rcom. Morrill Hail. Iowa State university. Ames. Iowa. Kill weeds and brush ... To improve pastures Eliminating brush or weed;; from pastures can increase their carrying capacity one third and even greater gains can bo accomplished if their removal is accompanied by a pasture improvement pro gram. Either cultural control or a com bination of cultural and chemical control will get rid of brush and seedling trees in a pasture, declares K. P. Sylweslcr. extension weed specialist at Iowa State un iversity. He lists the main offenders as huckbrush, hazebrush. sumac, dag wood, elder berry and sprouts of seedling trees as oak. hickory elm and box elder. An old mower with a short bar equipped with heavy guards and sickle will give satisfactory cultural control. If the brush is extremely heavy it should be removed after it is cut so it will not interfere with grazing. Otherwise, it can be left to root. A regular brush cutter is more satisfactory than a mower Ixrause it cuts and shreds the brush and rteurns it to the s'ul in mulch form Sylwcster says. Regardless of the method used it will be necessary to over the pasture again when the growth again is between six arid 12 inches. This means two or three trips over the field per year. Eventually* however, this treatment will elm* inate the brush, Sylwester says, * IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE WITH LEADER WANT ADS Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints Fayette Branch 600 S.
