Barred Rock Pullet Bete New Mark
On Station Farm
' All previous records for the num
ber ot eggs laid in rear by Indl-,
vldual hens in the experiment sta-j
tlon flock of the College ot Agricul
ture have been broken by a Barred
Plymouth Rock pullet that has just
completed her first year ot laying
TTlth a total of 263 eggs to her cre-j
it, according to an announcement by
J. Holmes Martin, in charge ot the
college poultry work. This is three
moie eggs than were laid by a White
Leghorn hen that has held the farm
record siuce 1919. The most strik
ing thing about the new record as
seen by poultrymen here ia that good
breeding, the right kind ot feed and
proper care made it possible for a
hen to lay 200 eggs more in a year
than the average hen on Kentucky
f4ms lays. The new holder of the
farm record Is the result of only
three year's work on the part Of the
station poultrymen to get Barred
Plymouth Rocks that will lay a large
number of eggs in a year.
4Ehe new record holder started
laying Nov. 3, 1921 and from that
time until her first year was com
pleted laid consistently every month, j
Now that her first year of laying has
been finished, the amount ot protein'
that has been ted her In the past is;
being cut down so that she will go
Into a molt and come back into lay
ing in time to produce eggs for th6
spring hatching season. She laid
25 eggs In November, 27 in Decern-1
ber, 21 in January, 22 in February,!
27 in March, 21 in April, 25 in May,
18 in June, 20 in July, 20 in August,
22 in September, 14 in October and
one during the first two days oi
November. The largest number ot
eggs which she laid on successive
days was 22, this having been ("one
between May 18 and June 8.
Aside from the fact that she Is a
bird of good size and has desirable
Barred Plymouth Rock type andj
telor, the new holder of the farm
record is an example of what breed
ing, good feed and the right kind ot
care will do in raising the number
of eggs that chickens lay, Mr. Mar
tin says. Her mother was a hen
that laid only 161 eggs in her best
year but laid for 11 months, thus
showing that she had the power to
continue laying over a long period
or time. In addition she was a hen
that had another desirable charac
teristic in that she layed until late
in the fall before going into a molt.
Fertility Worth Millions leaves
Rolls In Leaf Crop
Close to 36,000,000 worth ot soil
fertility will be taken away from
Kentucky farms when the state's!
estimated 1922 crop of 600,000,000 1
pounds ot tobacco is marketed, ac-,

specialist ot the College of Agricul-.
ture. This is a heavy drain on thej
fertility of the state's farms that
aukea away plant food worth more
Whan twice the amount that is re-'
turned in commercial fertilizers.;
Stalks that are produced along with!
the loaf crop make good fertilizer
auJ if they are used carefully will
help considerably toward checking
the annual drain on soils that grow
tobacco, Mr. Stephenson says. J
A total of 150,000,000 pounds of
tobacco stalks, or 75,000 tons, are'
produced along with a crop of 500,-j
000,000 pounds of leaf. Figured at
the cost of commercial fertilizers,

soil by a ton of stalks alone Is worth
18.' At this rate, the 76,000 tons'
ot stalks produced in tr state this'
year contain fertilizer worth II.
350,000. This makes Uie value of
tUa stalks greater than the commer
cial fertilizer used online tobacco
Tobacco ia especially rich in nitro
gen and potash and therefore makes .
r good supplement for phosphate
fertilisers. A ton ot the stalks cou-J
talus about as much nitrogen w
potash as eight tons ot stabla nin-j
. nure. They should, therefore, be
spread over as large an area as po-
aible when being used on the farm. (
The stalks also are excellent tr top
dressing young grass or small grain
. in the spring.
Both the nitrogen and the potash
In tobacco Is Quite soluble and
leaches away easily. When the(
stalks are left in piles exposed to the
weather there Is, therefore, a cou
, elderable waste ot fertiliser. The
7 fact that they contain about $18,
V worth of plant food to the ton makes
' it important that 'they be taken care
ot so that their value will not be de-,
troyed during the winter. 8torlug,
the stalks in shed until spread on'
the field is the best means of mak
ing tare that none of the fertility
which they contain will be wasted.
Union County Farmers To Feed Hens
For More Eggs
Farmers In this section of the state
are showing a lively interest in the
best methods of feeding and taking
care of their hens in orders to get
the most eggs from them this winter,
County Agent L. C. Brewer, of Union
county says. One hundred sixty
farmers of this county, Including rep
resentatives of every section of it,
have entered their flocks In the win
ter egg laying project being conduct
ed over the state by the extension
division of the College of Agricul
ture at Lexington and will follow
recommended practices in feeding
and caring for their hens during
the coming five months. One com
munity of the county has 50 flocks
enrolled in the project while another
has 40. .
20 Breckinridge Farmer Join Drive
Breckinridge county farmers, co
operating with County Agent R. M.
Greene and the extension division
of the College of Agriculture at Lex
ington, have made a good start in
what promises to be an effective
drive to get rid ot scrub breeding
animals In this section of the state,
Mr. Greene says. Twenty of them
already have enrolled in the nation
wide "Better Sires-Better Stock"
campaign by agreeing to use noth
ing but purebred sires in all their
breeding work. The campaign is be
ing conducted over the country
through the cooperation of state ag
ricultural colleges, county agricul
tural agents and the United States
Department of Agriculture. Ken
tucky now stands fourth among all
states of the Union in the number
ot farmers who have enrolled.
Jefferson Farmers Using Cover
Crops To Save Soil
Hundreds ' of Jefferson county
farmers have taken steps to protect
their fields from soil washing and
the leaching away ot plant food
during the coming winter by seeding
them to cover crops, according to
County Agent F. . Merriniau.
Thirty farmers of the county are co
operating with the extension divi
sion of the College ot Agriculture
at Lexington and Mr. Merriman in
carrying on demonstrations on their
farms to show how these crops keep
Boils from washing and save hun
dreds of dollars worth of plant food
that leaches away it the fields are
Dairy Profits May Drop If Cow's
The time of the year is about here
when the profits from Kentucky
farm dairy herds begin to drop un
less cows are given good toed and
kept in comfortable barns, accord
ing to J. J. Hooper, head of the dairy
department ot the College ot Agri
culture. Although Kentucky win
ters are not as long or as severe as
those of the famous dairy sections
ot the North, the same ' careful
methods that help northern dairy
men and farmers get bigger profits
from their dairy cows can be used
to advantage by farmers in this
"From now until next spring,
cows should have a pound ot mixed
teed for every three and one-half
pounds ot milk that they give, and
in addition should be fed 10 pounds
of clover, alfalfa, or cowpea hay
and 30 pounds ot silage daily. A
good grain mixture may be made ot
four pounds of corn meal, two
pounds ot bran or shipstuff and two
pounds ot cottonseed meal. It sil
age cannot be fed, some succulent
feed, like beet pulp, should be used
unless the cows can get plenty ot
"Dairy cows cannot be given good
care at his time of the year unless
they are kept In a barn all night
and part of the day. This belug the
caso, comfort and healthful sur
roundings tor the cow are of first
Importance. Plenty of light, good
ventilation and lots ot clean beddipg
are the big items iu making the
cow comfortable. There should be
four square feet of window glass
for each stall or stanchion while the
windows should be well distributed
so that each stable gets plenty of
light. In order to get enough air,
each cow requires at least 600 cubto
feet ot space. The air In the stable
must be changed frequently if it is
to stay fresh at all times. This
should be done without causing
drafts of cold air on the cows or
without unduly lowering the temper
ature in the stable. Fresh air may
be admitted through windows hing
ed at the bottom and' tipping Inward.
"Bedding the cows freely twice a
day with clean straw helps to keep
them clean and comfortable. Just
before milking Is a good time to
clean up and add fresh straw."
Fall Fruit Tree Setting Under Way
The fall planting of fruit trees is
on in full swing In almost every part
of the state, according to W. W.
Magill, orchard extension specialist
of the College of Agriculture. Nurse
ries are making numerous shipments
of young trees while scores ot farm
ers are making plans for their fu
ture orchards. The care that is giv
en the young trees from the time
they arrive at the railroad station
until they are planted plays a large
part In determining whether or not
they live, Mr. Magill says.
Trees from the nursery should be
heeled in at some spot convenient to
the orchard site- just as soon as
possible after they arrive. This is
done by digging a trench deep
enough to fully cov?r the roots and
sloping considerably more on one
side than it does ou the other. The
trees are then separated and their
roots placed close together along
the trench with t!ie trunks on the
sloping side. The soil is then care
fully worked In around the roots
and tramped down solid.
A good way to keep the tree roots
from drying out while the planting
is being done is to put them in a
barrel or tub half full of a thick
mud made by mixing water and clay
soil. The barrel or tub and the
trees can be moved easily from
place to place if they are placed on
a sled or wagon. Most commercial
growers of the state prefer to plant
their trees in the fall, since the soil
is more tillable at this time and be
comes firmly Bettled around the
roots of the young trees before they
start growing in the spring. How
ever, if bad weather stops the plant
ing before the trees are all set those
that are left can be heeled in and
kept over for spring planting. Dam
age from rabbits to the newly set
trees can be stopped by putting
poultry netting two feet high around
Apple trees are best planted about
31 by 35 feet and peach trees about
24 by 24 feet apart. When the holes
for the trees are being dug, the top
and sub soil should be kept sepa
rate so that the richer -top soil can
be placed around thu roots of the
trees. It is not a good practice to
mix straw, manure or leaves with
the dirt as the holes are being filled
as these tend to stop the rise of
water through the soil and may
cause the tree to die becuuse of lack
of moisture. Care should be taken
to pack the soil well around the
Farm And Home News From Over
Purebred livestock is gaining in
favor with Barren county farmers,
County Agent J. O. Horning says.
Four farmers of the county recently
have added purebred sires to their
Hopkins county farmers are find
ing out that limestone helps them
get better stands of sweet clover and
other legumes, County Agent Morris
M. Gordon reports. Sixty tous of
limestone recently were used by
farmers in the county in one mouth.
Forty Taylor county farmers have
entered their poultry flocks In the
winter egg laying project being con
ducted over the state by the exten
sion division of the College ot Ag
riculture at Lexington, according to
County Agent J. L. Miller. They
will follow recommended practice
during the next five months in order
to find out for themselves whether
or not bens will lay more eggs dur
ing the winter if they are fed th
right klud ot feeds and given good
Close to 300 Fayette county far

Gubbert and the extension division
ot the College of Agriculture. A
total of 38 flocks were culled In the
demonstrations, 1.300 ot the 3,591
hens that were bandied being dis
carded becauue they showed charac
teristic signs of being poor layers
that had stopped for the season.
Few acres ot Campbell county
