WEEKLY BROILER REVIEW The weekly review of specialized broiler markets as reported by the University of Arkansas Institute of Technology and the Dairy and Poultry Market News Service of thr U. S. Department of Agriculture: The Northwest Arkansas area market was steady this week, closini steady on Thursday,, February. 7. The demand was Rood with the volume of trading aver- a*inj[ above normal. Supplies of heavy broilers and fryers were short at most points, while lighter weights were adei' f n l ". ^rices at the close were unchanged. In the Batesville-no...! ,,cra the market was steady to firm during the week, closing steady to firm on Thursday. Supplies were reported short of a good demand a most points. The volume of trading averaged above normal for the week. Trices at the close were unchanged, with the mostly price one cent higher. The other markets were lien- erally steady throughout, with no major price changes from a week ago. Supplies of lightweight chickens were equal to the fair Lo good demand, but the heavier iizes were often in lijrht supply Northwest Arkansas Forming By John I. Smith About · year ago I mentioned n this column the pasture possibilities of Kudzo in Northwest Arkansas. A number of comments resulted from this article, and as i result I have spent considerable imc since then trying to observe he behavior of this plant on about 15 plots in Northwest Arkansas, ;ome of which are being pastured. I believe it has a good place in our pasture program, especially on land that is too rough to mow and is inclined to grow briars, edge, scrub oak, and other bushes, sre nothing against Kudzo and nuch for it as a pasture plant on month land that can grow other Itood pasture plants, but there is a definite need for it on the rough unmowable land on which t h e ' growth of scrub timber can n o l i otherwise be controlled. ' in '"nlMn" rcnrral statements! about (he belief t h a t the plant has .: uiace in a program, we realize that years from now some other plant might have a stronger place and the original one might be almost forgotten. After all. our pas- lure program had its inception m the drouth and depression of the 30s. It is a young thing still and many mistakes will be made before a n y t h i n g like a pattern will evolve. A (Inal pattern will never evolve. Thus, we need constantly . to test a few new p l a n t s and melh- jods. The farmers must piny a big ' p a r t in that testing. The car manufacturer, even w i t h his great testing grounds, must await the f i n a l judgment of millions of drivers in order to find Ihe ''bugs" in his automoblc. Back to Kudzo: Menton County perhaps has more plots t h a n Washington County. ' One of Die railroads placed a few plants in the Northwest part of t h a t county on poor f l i n t ridge land about 20 years ago. They have w i t h stood all cold weather and luive made a* complete cover that has kept out the undesirable growlh. Kudzo is a vine and a legume. The foliage is both nutritious and palatable. Cattle like it. In the Three Living Queens In Britain spring they do not seem to no For the first time in history, Britain h;is three qurcns Ilvin«. They arc, IcU to right:. King George 1 !

In the latter halt of summer when other (trass is short .they relish the Kurtzo and Kudzo thus helps out when feed is most needed. Kudzo is a rnther IIURC vine. It is a summer perennial which kills back to the ground level with the first severe frost. But the following summer It will easily make a vine growlh of a hundred feet. Thus it can wrap up, shade, and break down a bush pretty easily. If one wanis to observe this effect, he should stop his cai at Knob Hill Ranch on 71 highway south of Ml. Gaylor and look at a plot just east of the higlnvav and bordering it. The same k i n d of observation can be made, on the east of highway 71 one mile north of Gravctte. This Is the time of year to consider setting out Kudko roots. If one can gel Northwest Arkansas acclimated roots he should do so. If he can not pet these he can get roots from the .Smith, i have heard of some winter k i l l i n g of Southern root stock but a f t e r all the hardy one will survive.
