Biggest Wool Clip Brings Best Price MANY FLOCKS of Wyoming sheep in 1951 brought their highest wool prices in many a season besides producing one of the best clips ever grown, in the opinion of Alexander Johnston, University of Wyoming wool specialist. owners The mild winter, along with abun dant feed in most areas, meant that the sheep could conserve their body energy and use a large part of their feed for wool production, he says. The excellent body condition of the sheep was obvious at shearing time. The ewes carried a high degree of fleshing and a fleece of bright color both before and after shearing. Johnston reports that very few "dirty backs" were evident after shearing. In most flocks the staple markably long, the specialist ob servés. "Fleece weights were greater than they had been for several years. While this greater weight indicated very was re an increase in the shrinkage, the fleeces also contained a larger amount of clean wool fiber than is usually evident." Based upon the preshearing con tract prices, wool growers can all . _ * . show a very substantial gain in fleece value over the average of the last 10 years, Johnston points out, adding that wool values in Wyo ming have never been higher than during this season. "In many cases the wool grower received over $3.75 per pound clean for his clip, and in some cases values of over $4 per pound clean have been calculated," he reveals.

Comparatively short letters must necessarily be favored, although excerpts from longer letters may be used. Montana Farmer-Stockman may or may not agree with the opinions expressed. THIS IS HOW we cure death camas poison for cows and sheep. We learned what we know about it from experience. As quick as we see any signs of a cow being poisoned we give her eight heaping tablespoons fu}l of dry sulphur. One person holds the cow's head and opens her mouth while another person puts the sul phur, a tablespoonful at a time, far back in her mouth. They waste a lot, usually, or five tablespoonfuls might be sufficient. If necessary, in about two hours, give from two to five more .table spoonfuls of sulphur. If it's a milk cow she will likely dry up a lot, but keep milking her and she will come back up again in her milk. We stop using the milk till she is well and a little while afterwards. We have had cows swelled terribly from it, but it will go down. They have frothy slobbers in their mouth and will tremble when they get this kind of poison and are weak. Sheep will blink an eye and froth at the mouth, or maybe go back wards. Give IVz heaping teaspoon fuls of sulphur if bad or one heaping teaspoonful if not very bad. Some times by looking in their mouth you CORN CENTER OOIN'S ■ • / Ù 5WS nn felt: ft 1 Ù V ■''ft w \ "Cows kept failin' outa the pasture, so we got Power-Curve tires and farmed it. » You can be sure of a firm footing in any This flexibility, plus the BFG open center field with B.F.Goodrich Power-Curve tires. tread, keeps the tire clean — clean for Each cleat has an arrowhead nose that better pulling!
