But one of ·Uie basic ways--a usually depend able way--is to figure out the ' -Wyclical position" of the cattle, . JBbgs or sheep. ~0vor a period of years, the supply o f ' a most animal will vary . up and down in a rather consist- iyit .pattern, County Agent Carl Rose explained today.

The low point in the cattle cycle wfts reached in 1048. In the four y e a r s - s i n c e then, farmers have been building herds. Cattle were kept on farms and didn't go to market to Influence prices. In 1051 this i was important in Ihcr increases In 'cattle nurhbers arc expec'cd In the years ahead, though the rate of iiK'rcsso will be i slower.

WEEKLY BROILER REVIEW The weekly review of specialized broiler markets as reported by the University' pf Arkansas Institute of Science ahd Technology and ihc Dairy and Poultry Market News Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture: In the Northwest Argansas area the market was about steady this .Week, closing about steady on Northwest Arkansas Farming By. John I. Smith There are three truck crops thai \ we think of most in coiuldcrinii · the problems of our many s m a l l ' diversified farms. They arc straw-' berries, tomatoes, and beans. One. should already have applied t h e - - ' fertilizer lo his strawberries.! There are no other pressing prob lems in connection with the ber ries at this time unless one be gin» to select a small tract on which to set out his bed for the coming years, A lot of expense goes into a strawberry bed th first year without any. returns If one Is equipped for sprinkle Irrigation a bed located near the water supply is advisable. Irrigation has paid with strawberries. Fertility Is one of the major problems in boon produc{lon Large acreages on poor land with light applications of fertilizer have been unprofitable. Small acreage: on good land well fertilized have been profitable, especially for the farmer that has sufficient famll,\ labor to handle the harvesting Our market, of course, is the canning factories, and- one should make sure 'at the market before planting nny appreciable quantity. Tomatoes remains perhaps our biggest truck crop in Northwest Arkansas which is an annual proposition. We not only have the canning factory market but we have the · green wrap and local markets.' This 'Is one cash crop February 21. Supply Improved during the PALACE ALL SEATS 50?

Again, fertility plays the grcal- csl part in the success o f . t o m a toes, At Pea. Ridge a couple of years ago the farmers, in cooperation with the canncr, went in for quality and q u a n t i t y production with the very best of results. .They applied about 10 tons of manure and 800 pounds 5-10-5 fertilizer per. acre. Their yields Jilgh'as 16 tons of high quality tomatoes and a Id o f . seconds.·· Their average was around 10 (fins. That's high production, and It can be achieved over most of Northwest Arkansas by the proper application of fertilizer. Tomatoes have the repulallon of being succeplablc lo drouth injuries. That, too, is grcally a ferlilizer problem. Tomatoes that grow rapidly on well fertilized ground continue producing quality t o m a t o e s during reasonable drouths. Slowly (trowing tomatoes on poorly fertilized grdund lie- come stunted early and the fruit soon shows the effects of' sun scalds. The rapid growlh of Ihc fruit and the shad* from the excess vine growth are great assets In .tomato production when dry weather comes along. While it Is Impqrtant lo sclecl ground for tomatoes on which neither lomatoes or potatoes grew last year, it is also importanl lo control diseases with spraying or dusting. One should get from the w Elli. Miller got a r o u n d ' t o a feed slorc in Louisville,TCy.; to look over a se'ven-wcek-bld chicken raised in a bottle.

LY 6 MORE DAYS Fertilizer Prospects For '52 Said Improved County Ascnt Carl E. Rose said today that fertilizer prospects for the J952 crop season have improved slightly. "Nitrogen supplies will be seven per cenl higher than in 1951," he said, "instead of the five per cen increase predicted earlier." And instead of the cxpectei eight to ten per cent drop In phosphate supplies, only a six per cen drop, is in view how. While Ihis sounds encouraging the over-all picture rcmaiijs mucl Ihc same, Rose pointed out. "Farmers will be wanting more fertilizer than they can get," he indicated. "Their best assuranc of getting what they ncori is to buy early. To wall u n t i l fertilize! is actually needed may--am probably will--mean that loca suppplies will he even shorter.
