The area is in my view now approach
ing stability in its ranching and farm
ing, with most of the lands going into
the family-type stock ranches.
Such ranches, with 300 to 600 animal
units are usually able to attain the
needed balance in the seasonal
of the lands, to have adequate equip
ment, and to achieve good livestock
management and uses of labor time.
Most of ihe lands of the area
good or potentially good rangelands.
In rangeland type the area is an in
teresting one and one offering excep
tional opportunities for skillful
agement. It is an area of the merging
of the mixed prairie grassland-range
land type of the northern plains and
of the bunch-grass-rangeland type of
the northern Rocky Mountain foothills
and intermountain basins.
For this reason the techniques of
range science, many of them new or
recently developed, can be very valu
able in making the right decisions for
natural rangeland restoration or for
reseeding of lands to an economically
desirable range plant cover.

Fertilizer costs you money.
Of course, your investment is returned many
times over when your crop is harvested. But
it's still an expense - and your net profit de
pends on the value you get for the dollars
you spend.
Here's how to shop for your best fertilizer
value :
Know the plant food requirements of your soil and crops. If you don't
already know its basic deficiencies, have your soil analyzed; government
or university agriculturists can tell you the plant food demands every
crop makes on your soil. (Your Elephant Brand Fertilizer dealer can give
you good advice. He knows conditions in your district - and he knows the
M
*:v

I
nr
products he sells.)
Choose a fertilizer that supplies the plant foods your soil needs. (Check
the Elephant Brand line - with recently added new products, it offers you
a fertilizer to answer almost every soil and crop requirement.)
Buy a High Analysis fertilizer - you'll profit from lower cost per unit of
plant food plus less time and labor in application. Don't buy on the basis
of dollars per ton. Check dollars per plant food unit. High analysis pays
off in more plant food per dollar! (All Elephant Brand Fertilizers are
high analysis.)
Don't experiment with new, untried products. Be sure of success with a
fertilizer proved effective. (Elephant Brand, has 20 years of actual farm
experience in the western United States. Test programs are being con
ducted continually to help farmers get better results.)
Look for quality - in both the product and the way it is packed. A poor
fertilizer in a poor bag is costly in both time and money. (Elephant Brand
Fertilizers are packed in strong, moisture resistant multi-wall bags for
trouble-free handling and storage. Elephant Brand's uniform-sized pellets
ensure fast, easy application at exact rates - which means more fertilizer
economy.)
Check the analysis on the bag - be sure that the nitrogen is water soluble
and that the phosphate is in a readily available form. (Elephant Bran^
Fertilizers are guaranteed to give your crop readily available, water
soluble plant foods to the full limit of the analysis printed on the bag.)
See your Elephant Brand Fertilizer dealer. Choose the right fertilizer
for your needs from this complete line of high analysis products :
