W a r m days have . crmitted some growth nf early pastures, Riving farmers early spring grazing. In Faulltner County livestock farmers that have green grazing are making out good, now that most all the hay has been fed. Many stockmen are depending on grass, James O. Hill, county agent, said. Livestock in North Sebastian County are making fair gains, and pastures are beginning to increase milk production.

Prices, for the week ending Wednesday, April 9, were unchnged. The other markets were generally steady, ar, the continued fairly heavy supplies moved out in most areas without difficulty. Farm prices in Central North Carolina were a cent lower and j Dclmarvn and Mississippi areas were unchanged to down a cent from last week. North Alabama and North Georgia gained one-half to a cent while In Texas farm sales were unchanged to a cent higher. The Shenandoah Valley held mostly the same prices. Northwest Arkansas Farming By John1. Smith The price of pork has recently declined to around 16c which ih the lowest in a number of years. The farmer who is now feeding purchased grain to hogs in a dry lot is losing money. That temporary loss, however, will not eliminate the pork industry from Northwest Arkansas. Disregarding how low the price might go we will still be producing pork 10 years from now or 50. Pork production is a part of (he general scheme of diversified farming. Large production can be made on small acreages. In spite of the price decline, some farmers, by taking advantage of certain cheap by-products of the poultry or dairy industries, arc making money out of hogs. The eggs that do not hatch at the poultry plants form a sizeable quantity of top quality high protein food for hogs. It is being used by a number of farmers in the profitable production of pork in large quantities. There is no more practical way of disposing of eggs. Stale bread from the bakeries, whey from dairy plants and other protein rich by-products from other Industries are also used by the farmers in profitable pork production. The above methods of fighting price decline, however,'are limited by the capacity of the particular Industries to supply the by--products. The next question is.what can any farmer do to produce pork profitably? There is an answer, 1 iclieve, in the Ladino clover hog jasture. A certain experienced Washington County farmer planted 5 acres of Ladino clover and red clovers in the fall of !»«», In May, 1951, he turned in 57 weaned pigs and 9 brood sows. In addition to this grazing he took off two good crops of seed. Of course, he fed some grain--about 2 pounds for every pound of gain the pigs made. By October-they weighed around 250. In spite of- the splendid season in 19S1 this was a tre- nendous production of pork per icrc and at a very favorable cost iftcr paying for the grain. Other crops can be used for pork pasture--alfalfa, rape, sorghum, rye grass, and small grains, but Ladino clover is the most promising one. It has replaced rape and alfalfa as the leading hog pasture plant. This Is not a time to think of abandoning one of our cash crops--pork--but a time to consider how to produce it profit- Lbly on a declining market. After nil that might be one of our serious problems in all branches of farming In the next few years: How to produce profitably on a declining market. Storing Meat Said Major Problem On Many Farms Storing meat at home to prevent insect and rodent damage is a number one problem o'n many Washington County farms these days. With much of the pork cured in early December about -ready for taking up County Agent Carl Rose today listed a few suggestions for solving many meat storage problems. The type of cure pretty well determines the type of storage that, can be used, he pointed out first. Dry sugar or country type cured meats can be smoked; and, of properly protected, will keep no matter how hot the weather. The milder cures Introduced by many locker plants do not have enough salt content to hang very long without refrigeration. They arc mild cured to produce meat with a fine flavor for eating soon after the curing process. If meat is country cured, Rose said, It can be safely stored if it is first wrapped in heavy paper and then in a tightly woven clean cloth sack. The paper serves to soak up grease and keep the cloth sack dry. The sack keeps out any insects. The meat will mold but the mold can be scraped or washed off without harming the meat. Meat should be nun* In th* driest place In the house or In the smoke house. . . Mild cured meats. " no' *» ( *n before warm weather, should be sliced and wrapped and frozen, Rose snld. Cured meats will keep from four to six months in the locker or home frcescr. Many families arc freezing their dry cured meats also. It Is a good Idea, however, to Keep In mind that frozen meat does not age, he Mid. If dry mred meat i« to be frozen, It jhoulrl he aged from two to three monthi before freezing If the bett flavor Is to be obtained, !· Ik* TIM»«-« oars!
