Interior of another house in Indiana shows tube feeders, which save labor because they hold more feed, need fewer fillings. Good arrangement cuts cpllection time. "Mechanical grader and buffer cut our egg handling time in half," says this farm wife, "and we always get top grade. If eggs get real dirty, we wash them." Cages offer advantages. With battery-powered cart for feeding and collecting eggs, this flockowner does all, the chores, except semi-annual cleaning out, for their 3500 bird flock in 4-6 hours daily. This includes egg grading and packing. Soys help after school. USS Nitrogen News Pastures need more than irrigation Important summer treatment for Sudan grass emergency pastures Now is the season when you'll be able to save on your feed bilk by having emergency pastures ready for grazing. One of the favorite grasses for emergency pastures is Sudan grass. This particular grass makes fine forage, but along with it comes one danger that bears some talking about. PrusslcAcid If there is an uneven recovery of Sudan grass after it is grazed over, there's a strong chance that you'll have pockets of grass that don't mature as quickly as the rest of the pasture. These pockets of immature grass may contain prussic acid that can seriously reduce a cow's production; and, .in extreme cases, even cause death. To avoid the dangers of prussic acid, make sure your Sudan grass pastures have an even recovery. One of the best ways to ensure even recovery is to top-dress every acre of Sudan grass.pasture with 200 pounds of USS Ammonium Sulfate. The 21% nitrogen content in USS Ammonium Sulfate goes to work promoting even recovery. When the entire pasture has reached a growth of between 18 and 20 inches, your emergency pasture is ready for use. The grass will be highly palatable, with a high protein content for maximum feeding benefit. With USS Ammonium Sulfate at work, you'll find that not only does Sudan grass recover evenly -but its growth is much more rapid, thanks, again, to nitrogen. USS Ammonium Sulfate is kiln-dried to make it easy flowing, and it also has 24% sulfur for deficient soils. Your local fertilizer dealer can supply you with USS Ammonium Sulfate in either bag or bulk. Order a supply now so your "emergency pastures will be ready when you need them most. Fall fertilization good bet Fall application of nitrogen-bearing USS Ammonium Sulfate is a good bet. Here are some of the advantages you'll enjoy. First, you'll save valuable time during planting season next spring by getting your nitrogen down now. Fall fertilization means that you're spreading farm costs more evenly through the year. Because USS Ammo-' nium Sulfate supplies nitrogen in ammonia form, it won't leach out through the winter months. It stays locked in the soil until spring, when it goes to work getting your crops off to a rapid, hearty growth. Kiln-dried USS Ammonium Sulfate is idea) for bulk spreading or can be applied with your regular equipment. Irrigation plus nitrogen doubles yield over non-treated pastures Irrigation alone just doesn't bring in the yields that many farmers expect You might compare the practice of irrigation without the use of nitrogen to buying a two-horse rig and then hooking just one horse to it. One of water's most important functions in the growth of any crop is to act as a carrying agent for plant nutrients. It is similar to a pack-train carrying vital nutrients from the soil to the plant. With that picture in mind, it makes good sense to reason that if there aren't enough plant nutrients in the soil, the plant growth just isn't going to be as heavy as it could be. Give Treatment Now In order to get the most out of your irrigation system—or to get good pasture yields even without an irrigation system-you must apply fertilizers, and particularly nitrogen ... in the form of USS Ammonium Sulfate. You see, the nitrogen in USS Ammonium Sulfate goes right to work encouraging rapid recovery of grazed-over pastures. The regrowth is even and high in protein. Because it's dry and free-flowing, USS Ammonium Sulfate is easy to apply. Top-dressing now with 200 to 250 pounds per acre can mean that you'li have your cattle back on that pasture several days earlier than usual. That means high milk production and important savings in feed. Typical Result of N Fertilization Here are some yield results from two pastures, taken early in the growing season-during the moist month—right through the summer drought season. These tests were run without irrigation. You can see for yourself how beneficial just 100 pounds of nitrogen per acre can be ... even without irrigation. Orttonfrw AIM.- HAY NNf JUY SETT.
