The National forest service appears as a factor in reducing the high cost of living or increasing the stockman s profits In a paper read before the National Wool Growers association today by A. P. Potter of the Nation al Forestry bureau. During the eight years that have passed since the Na tional forest service took charge ot the national forests, with the mala object of protecting the woodlands against destruction by natural agen cies, it has extended Its activities un til they now include cooperation with the stockmen In getting the most for their money out of the public grazing lands. I The grazing areas have been exten sively increased, according to Mr. Potter, and at the same time restric tions placed upon their use which have eliminated forage losses. Wa ter has been developed on hundreds of range?, and in two states alone -Arizona and New Mexico nearly half I million acres have been made avail able for grazing Over 500 experi ments have been conducted in the reseeding of ranges, and the forage crop increased from 100 to 400 pr cent. The forest service has also assumed the role of a school master in teach- j ing the "bedding out system." foi handling sheep, which is simply open, quiet herding during the day and beu ding the sheep where night overtakes them instead of driving them back to shelter A vigorous campaign for the adoption of this method was Started in 1909, and at .the present time there are n number of forests : where it has been adopted. "The result." said Mr. Potter, "in ariablv is an average increase ot about five pounds in the weight of the lambs and of about 10 to 25 per cent In the carrying capacity of the ran Res An Increase of 6 pounds per lamb for 5.000.000 lambs would mean f 6 1100,000 pounds added to the sheep- j men's salable product and the coun try's meat supply. "There has been some difficulty in potting the herders to adopt this new system for tho reason that It mennd ! harder work, but experience has shown that after the sheep get used to the open system of herding they are no harder to handle than under the close herding system' The forest service is carrying on many other studies and experiments with" vie w to helping the stockmen secure a better utilization of the for ;ig resources of the National fotesta and t' raise more and better stock- j I in 1911 a systematic range recon- j naissnnce was begun and over 5,000.- j 000 acres have already been, covered j by this survey.
