i FARM EXTRACTS
INFORMATION FROM THH EXPK RLMEXT STATION AGRICUL TURAL PATERS AND THH COUNTY AGENTS OFFICE 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-, ording to - K. JS. Btepnensou, suiia 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, .i.. iha nltrnfTAti- nntaaft ! IUU vaiuo v " " , i ..i Vw.-miu fnkpn from tne HUU - - 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 crcp. j 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 For Purebred 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 left bare. Dairy Profits May Drop If Cow's Needs Slighted 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 state. "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 green grass. "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 Over Kentucky 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 them. 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 roots. Farm And Home News From Over Kentucky 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 dairy herds. ... 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 care. Close to 300 Fayette county far mers and their wives this last Bum mer learned the method ot distingu ishing between the good and poor layers In their poultry flocks by at tending poultry culliug demonstra tions held by County Agent W. R. 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 farm lands this year will go through the wiuter without growing crop on them to stop soil washing and the leaching away ot plant food, County Agent H. F. Link says. Far mers .In that, section of the state have shown keen Interest la the val ue of cover crops for protecting soils during the winter.
