Loafer Hens Are Doomed As Cull ing Goes Forward! Within the next few weeks the annual fall . culling of poultry flocks ,ncrease(, lie in IUll BWing in- iiravucuuy regular tarnid-op and seeded utter ( tobacco. Farmers in the county , who never before had used cover crops last year Beeded 1,000 acres of rye for this purpose and an at- temnt will be made this year to will all parts ot the State, poultrymen at the College ot Agriculture say. Before the end of the season In early October approximately one third of the nine million hens in the State will Join the loafing class that culling is designed to elimi nate. This ratio is based on the results of' culling campaigns that have been, conducted in Kentucky in previous years. As in former years, an Intensive campaign again will he conducted against" these low producing hens in all parts of the State this year. Demonstrations by county agricul tural agents and poultry special ists from the college to show farm ers how to recognize the loafing hens will comprise the major part of the movement,- These demonstra tions will be planned to Include as many districts of the State as pos sible and it is expected that the majority of farmers will be taught the culling method before the sea son closes. Farmers who" attend the .demon strations In various parts of the state will n turn cull tneir owu flocks and In some cases "Every bare field should be seed ed In the fall to some crop that will protect the soil from erosion and leaching during the winter," Mr. Stephenson says. The more slop ing the land and the looser the soil the greater will be the need forf protection of this kind. ' ..Tobacco fields furnish a good example of the kind that are parti cularly In need of some growing crop for protection during the win ter. -Tobacco is carefully cultivated, ' not a weed Is allowed to grow and the soil is left fine and mellow; When' fall and winter rains come, the water flows unretarcled over the mellow, surface taking with it the rich sur-' face soil that contains the manure and fertilizers which were applied to the growing tobacco crop.. I "Much of this loss can be pre vented by seeding a fall crop such as wheat, hurley or winter outs which are successfully grown In certain sections ot the State. Rye and vetch, and sometimes crimson ! clover, also are .used successfully."
