Prices Slip, Light Demand Registered In Poultry Market The weekly review of specialized broiler markets as reported by the University of Arkansas Instilute of Science and Technology and the Dairy and Poultry Market News Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture: Northwest Arkansas: Thc mark- k«t has been weak Ihis week, closing weak on Thursday, April 24. Trend of prices has been down ward, as the heavy supplies have failed to clear under the light demand. Prices at the close were one cent lower, mostly price was also one cent lower. Batesvillt - floral ares: This market wap alio weak this week, closing weak : on Thursday. Sup- pliei have been reported in excess of the light demand. Prices at the close were one cent lower to unchanged, mostly price was unchanged. The other areas: The commercial broiler raising areas in the Southeast generally held steady this week, but. Texas | a n d . Mississippi were weak. Conj tinned heavy supplies cleared I fairly well in Ihe Southeast but | were often burdensome in the ; more Western sections. Prices at the farm in Mississippi were down as much as a cent and a half, while Texas prices were mostly one to' two rents lower. Clean Range for Growing Pulled Cuts Flock. Cost Growing out the replacement pullets on a clean, well-sodded range is a practical way of lowering the cost nf the laying flock. County Agent.Carl E. Rose said today lhat such practice can reduce the feed cost--from thc 10th to the 24th week by as much as 20 per cent. A clea"h range,. Ihe agent explained, Is one where there have be.en no.chickens or poultry manure for, a.t least three years, and Is ejjrnlial for control of certain diseases .»nd parasites. CrpwcHnir pullets results in .kill- Ing the. sod ns well .us In increasing the danger from diseases and parasites, nose snld.

At this tune of the year we can sec the best comparison between summer grasses and cool weather grasses. Our most extensive summer grasses are bermuda. lespedeza, sedge, blue stem. Johnson grass and Sudan grass. A cow would starve on any field of just these five grasses now. Our .most extensive cool weather grasses are orchard grass, fescue, rcseeding 1 becoming popular with crimson clover, Ladinn clover, hop j brooders, but County Agent Carl clover, and rye grass.

If heavy i spraying or dusting is done w h e n j worms attack small plants, i t j usually will not be necessary to treat plants within two weeks of harvest. If it becomes necessary to treal cabbage for worm control within two weeks of .harvest, rotenone should be used. Rotenone is non- poisinous ., ,, win ki ,l aphids (plant lice) as well as worms.
