YOUR COUNTY AGENT 4-H MEMBERS NEEDED IN MARKET UTTER PROJECT •If you've, been wondering how you can do more to" help on- the war effort, join a 4-H club and enroll in the market/litter project. At a meeting of the county 4-H leaders and club presidents it was decided to extend the date of enrollment for the market litter prqfject which normally closes April 1, We ne$d all the pork that can be raised and the farm boy or girl between 10 and 21 can- contribute materially by enrolling in this project. The county leaders suggested that an auction sale be held for the market litters the same as It done with the baby beef calves. This would be held later than the'fair, probably some time in October or at such time that the pigs would be ready for market. To enroll in this project a boy or girl can select a sow from Dad's herd and feed and care for the litter from farrowing time until the show and sale. Grade 'pigs are used " in the market litter project so any farm boy should be able to enter this project. 1 There Is also still ample time to enroll in the dairy, sheep, colt, poultry, garden an dcorn project for the individual .that prefers one of them. Contact either one of the fifteen local 4-H leaders or the county club agent at Algona. They can provide you with further information about the club projects, organization or activities.

ALL SOYBtaA^S ABO NOT GOOD SEED fcecent reports on the germina tion of soybean samples sent in by our office for testing have indicated that there is a possibility of many beans not being fit to plant. Some lots have tested as low as 45 percent and others from only 70 to 80 percent gefmlnation, Kosauth county farmers have indicated that they intend to help the nation's oil supply by increasing bean acreage to a large degree. This will take a lot of seed and it should be good seed, so all should be tested before planting. REPLACE SOME CORN WITH WHEAT THIS YEAR Many county farmers have already bought or placed orders for some of the Commodity Credit wheat that has been in storage. One hundred pounds of ground wheat will replace 105 ibs. of corn or 140 pounds of oats as a livestock feed. Since a variety at feeds Is always good for livestock and since wheat can now 'be secured at a favorable price, it Is possible that more farmers should consider feeding wheat as a corn or oat replacement. IDEAL FOR TREE PLANTING (Nearly every farm honie in Kossuth county needs more trees and this is an Ideal spring to plant. There Is plenty of moisture in the ground and besides it is not good to wait until the old trees are dead before starting another one or two. Good shade trees are the American elm, hard or black maple, hackbef- ryr green ash and White or fed oaks.
