October Is Final Month For How In?
Cover Crops ' I
October Is the final month during
which, farmers who wish to protect ;
their fields during the winter can
sow cover crops, according to R. E.
Stephenson, soils extension special-
1st from the College of Agriculture,
Many farmers have already realized
the value of. such crops and seeded
their fields with them, reports from
more than 60 Kentucky counties In -
dicating that the acreage of such
crops will be increased from one-j
third to one-fourth more than that
of last year. Rye which has proved

' excellent opportunity for increasing
tho profits from this phase of their
business according to J. J. Hooper,
' the coll'eae of Agriculture. At the
rregent time Kentucky farmers are
producing about 70 per cent of
their dairy products between May 1

months, according to Mr. Hooper,
This condition should be revised or
at last equalized if the greatest

a, maximum production of milk
during the winter months will make
jt possible for farmers to realize the
greatest profit from their dairies
since all dairy products bring the
highest price during that season of
the year. Labor also is cheaper

production In the summer when
pastures are at their best. The cow
that freshens in the fall will produce
25 per cent more milk during the!
year than one that freshens during
the spring because of these condi
tions, Mr. Hooper said.
Dohorncd Cattye Most Profitable
Farmers who wish to. realize the
greatest profit from their cattle will
do well to dehorn them while they '
are calves, according to suggestions
made by animal husbandry special-1
ists at the College of Agriculture.
Dehorned steers are worth about 50 (
cents more a hundred pounds as,
feeders, will make more rapid gains
in the feedlot and lose less weight1
in being shipped to
the market. .
Dairy cows also are
less liable to .
injure one another when they have j
their horns removed. This Is tho
best time of the year to dehorn old '
cattle, conditions Being most favora-
