IN NORTH CAROLINA BY CHARLES SHEFFIELD, Assistant Director, Agricultural Ex tension Service, North Carolina State College. Geographically, piedmont North . Carolina comprises 34 counties which are divided into three districts, known as northern piedmont, central pied mont and southern piedmont. The re gion as a whole presents a gently roll ing appearance, with here and there isolated ranges of hills in the vicin ity of the larger streams. The eleva tion ranges from 500 to 2000 feet. The area is intersected by numerous small streams. Along the Catawba and Yadkin rivers are extensive tracts of lowlands which were formerly considered the most productive lands, but in recent years these bottoms have been dam aged by deposits of sand and clay washed from the hills. Then too, the development of hydro-electric power has brought about the flooding of many thousand^ of acres of these low lands to harness the energy of these two streams. Throughout the region, the problem of soil erosion on the hill farms is se rious. The heavy clay soils predomi nate, holding'their fertility well and being susceptible of improvement. They are well adapted to livestock farming and the production of all crops and legumes such as small grains, hays, cotton and tobacco. Because of its moderate elevation and rolling surface with good drain age, the piedmont has a remarkably healthful climate. The average annual temperture is 60 degrees F. The range in temperature in summer and winter is greater perhaps than in any other section of the State, yet it is not great enough to cause discomfort. The an nual rainfall is around 48 inches and is well distributed throughout the year. The growing season extends from April 10th to October 20th and is sufficient for all staple crops of the region. LAND AREA IN FARMS The land area of piedmont North Carolina as given in the 1931 census report is approximately 10,000,000 acres of which 7,879,733 acres are in farms. Farm lands comprise approxi mately /9 per cent of the~tofal acre age. Approximately 2,750,0*00 acres of the region is planted annually to crops, the remainder being in woodland, pas ture and other lands classified as farm steads, roads and waste land. MAJOR CROPS A list of the crops grown in the piedmont according to acreage im portance is as follows: Corn, 994, 143 acres; cotton, 510,728 acres; cleared pasture, 327,426 acres; hay, 25 5,938 acres; wheat, 294,764 acres; tobacco, 196,092 acres; oats, 129,041 acres; rye, 39,305 acres; commercial truck crops, 38,246 acres; home gar dens, 37,496 acres; cowpeas (for seed) 34,346 acres; sweet potatoes, 27,036 acres; barley, 22,080 acres; soybeans, (for seed), 20,748 acres, and Irish potatoes, 15,707 acres. Corn is the most essential and the most generally grown crop since it may be used for both human food and livestock feed and the acreage has been greatly increased in the past few years. In 1931 this region alone grew approximately 45 per cent of the State’s entire corn acreige. The aver age yield per acr% is 22 bushels, while many of the good farmers readily get a yield of from 40 to 50 bushels. The low prices received for the 1931 crop i-i ___i:_»_L wmvu tv aj iiiainvbvu mivugi* was very disappointing, but even so, this crop probably offers the best bas is for future farm prosperity. A ma jority of the piedmont farmers utilize their corn by feeding to livestock, which in turn may be sold as a fin ished product, whicb^pltimately is the best basis for permanent success. The section has long been noted for it fine wheat and other small grains. In 1931, the piedmont counties grew over 77 per cent of the entire wheat acreage of North Carolina. The yield per acre was exceptionally good and perhaps the best in several decades. The average yield was 15 bushels while hundreds of farmers secured yields of from 30 to 50 bushels per acre. While the crop did not bring a handsome profit to its growers, it did provide a very essential and a valuable food and feed. Wheat also acts as a fine catch crop, since it is planted in the fall and early winter. It requires no cultivation and is harvested in time for hay crops to follow for harvest in the same year. Oats and barley are generally grown in all piedmont counties. Unlike other sections of the state, these cereals are harvested mainly for grain while in the east they are harvested in the un threshed state. The oat crop of th< piedmont area comprises 50 per cent of the entire acreage of the state while barley comprise 8X per cent oi the total State acreage. There is n< great sale for oats and barley but each farmer attempts to grow largely what the livestock on his own place can con sume. Perhaps no other area in any Southern state has a greater variety of hay crops from which to choose than may be found in the 34 piedmont counties. There are (1) the different kinds of small grains, like oats, barky and vetch, which may be cut either in a green or mature state; (2) the different types of clovers, like red clover, lespedeza, sweet clover, Aus trian winter peas, crimson clover and alfalfa, some of which provide more than one cutting a year; (3) the an nual legumes of the soybean and cow pea type; (4) the voluntary or mead ow hays which are never planted and (5) in many instances, the special grasses which are planted for both grazing and to furnish mixed hays for all forms of livestock. SIZE OF FARMS AND TYPE OF FARMERS The farms of piedmont North Car olina vary in size from three acres to a few farms in the area of approxi mately 5,000 acres with the average being approximately 70 acres a farm. The greater percentage of total farms are from 50 to 100 acres. The piedmont has a high percent age of farm owners. In a few coun ties the number of farms owned av erages around 80 per cent while in other counties only 30 to 70 per cent of the total farms are owned, the re mainaer Deing mannea Dy tenants, in the piedmont area there are 53 per ceij^ of the farms cultivated by own ers while 47 per cent are farmed by tenants, as compared with the state as a whole where 5045 per cent are own ers and 49.2 per cent are tenants. It is also interesting to note that che percentage of which farm opera tors for che piedmont area is 64.2 per cent as compared with the other re gio-^ of the State which have an av erage of 60.6 per cent white opera tors. The number of colored tenants operating farms is 35.8 per cent for che piedmont area and 39.4 per cent for the other regions of the State. LIVESTOCK DEVELOPMENT It is claimed by many of our agri cultural leaders that probably che greatest weakness in North Carolina agriculture is the lack of livestock. This is said in spite of the contention of most farmers that there is no mon ey available for this type of farm ing. This accusation does not apply to che piedmont section to the extent that it does in other sections. The great industries have been located in the piedmont and dairying and live stock production have grown more rapidly than in other regions. The piedmont section now has 49 per cent of all the dairy cows of the state, 19.1 per cent of the swine, 43 per cent of all the laying hens and 9 per cent of the sheep population. The numbers of livestock in the piedmont area is as follows: dairy cows, 146,660; hogs, 160,694; sheep, 10,493 and laying hens, 2,427,934. The majority of piedmont farmers are convinced that livestock is prof itable and that much of the expense for fertilizer can be saved and a bet ter soil developed through the grow ing of livestock. Then, too, the live stock in this area offers a market for surplus feeds and grains. A minimum j of hand labor is required for livestock farming because machinery can be used to good advantage in growing grains and hays and in the production of pastures. The successful piedmont farmer in nine cases out of ten will have his farm well stocked with at least three kinds of livestock. This combination guarantees him a year around farm in come. Such an arrangement enables this type of farmer to market his so called cash crop products more or less independently, thus eliminating em ergency sales. SOIL FERTILITY The building of fertile soils and maintaining them is one of the major problems of piedmont Carolina. Soil erosion is a big drawback to the area. Even so, the problem is being attack ed wisely and .progressively by the majority of farmers in all counties, One of the most hopeful signs of ov ercoming this major drawback of soil erosion is the fact that more than 100, 000 acres of legumes such as lesjedeza red clover, vetch, crimson clover, Aus trian winter peas, soybeans and cow peas are plowed under annually. Thi: adds to the vegetable matter whicl helps to reduce the washing away ol the hilly soils. Whatever may be said of the farm ing methods of the piedmont area, i is not a get-rich-quick idea but is farming system which guarantees year around living. One only has t< make a few personal visits to thes farmers to get the impression of feeling of permanence and independ ence which few engaged in other line - of endeavor have experienced for th past three years. It is also encouraging to note that even though the number of crops acres in the piedmont area comprises approximately one-third the crop acreage of the state that the piedmont area in 1931 only purchased 27 pet cent of the total amount of fertilizer purchased in the state. The amount purchased was 9,607 tons. It is a pleasure and distinctly en couraging to study the statistics of crops and livestock in the piedmont area as the trend is definitely toward the production ^>f more grains, feeds, pastures and hays, which will ulti mately lead to a great expansion in the numbers of livestock kept on all the farms. REAL COWBOYS ARE FOUND ON FEW WESTERN RANCHES — 1 — - ■ • Reno, Nev.—Just how wild is the West today? Are there any '"real” cowboys left? Have the dude ranches completely supplanted true ranch life? The city dweller, or train tourist, whose closest approach to the West is through a story, motion picture, or Pullman window may well wonder whether the old days of the bucka roo and vaquero have vanished com pletely, but in fact they have not. Scattered along the edges of the most desolate parts of the West where they have been driven by the march of sheep and civilization, are ranches where the old traditions still are nhserved. Near Amedee, Calif., the capital of what once was as rich a cow country as any in the United States, a number of such men are now liv ing. One is the foreman of a cattle ranch owned by the Humphries in terests, large operators throughout Northeastern California. Another has his own ronch and makes a living partly through trading and selling horses he rounds up on the surround ing mountains and high basins. Holding the lines along the more remote ranges are "real” cowboys. Some of them have nothing to do but remember the old days, when thousands of cattle grazed the sum mer and winter ranges, but others are still making a living keeping the dog ies in check, riding fence, or breaking horses. Chaps and 10-gallon hats are put to practical use as well as orna mental purposes, and riding is a nec essary art among them. CUTS POWER RATES TO CITIES The Carolina Power and Light company has anryounced reductions averaging 11 per cent in charges to 83 North Carolina municipalities for power used in street lighting, the new rates to apply where contracts for hree years or longer are entered.
