On the other hand, prices may de cline if an over-supply is produced. What is the present situation? We have today less beef in sight than fpr several years, according to reports to (he United States department of ag griculture. which is kept closely ad vised as to conditions on the ranges and in the markets. The present price of feeding stuff, scarcity of farm la bor, reduced numbers of breeding ani mals, and a small margin of profits to the producer the past year are all factors which tend to limit produc tion, and impress upon us the im portance of maintaining production and producing, beef as cheaply as possible. Utilize Pastures to Utmost. For an answer to this question, we must look to Mother Earth. This is springtime, the crops are planted, the grass is growing, and the cattle are on the green. This means, in its last analysis, utilize pasture to the limit, conserve roughages to the utmost, and produce forages and feeding stuffs which will make the most beef at least cost. The bureau of animal industry of the department of agriculture has for several years been studying the prob lem of utilizing these feeds to best advantage. In 1914 the department, in co-operation with the West Vir ginia agricultural station, began a series of beef cattle experiments in Greenbriar county. West Virginia, to solve beef production problems in the aw IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING BEEF PRODUCTION CHEAPLY AS POSSIBLE Making Beef From Lespedeza in Central Mississippi. "Is the price of beef high?" This question is heard on all sides today. The producer says, "No, con sidering the price I get for my cattle." The consumer says, "Yes." So there you have it. But whatever Che right answer, the fact remains that prices may go higher if there is not enough beef to supply the demand for juicy steaks and rib roasts with brown gravy. A Hereford Bull of High Quality. Appalachian mountain region. This station is located in the southwestern part of the state, in the blue grass area, and the problems undertaken are: First—Most economical and satis factory rations for wintering beef steers second—The influence of these rations upon the gains of steers the following summer from grass. The results of the experiments ap ply not to West Virginia, alone, but to all states having similar conditions, which, In fact, Includes the whole Appalachian region, extending from southern Tennessee to New York. It is within this general area that abund ant pastures, cut-over and waste land Is found, producing abundant pasture of high quality for beef production. Abundant Pastures Available. The South, with its delightful cli mate and long grazing period of approx imately ten months of the year, where •rarpet grass, Bermuda and other kinds nlmost equally as nutritious abound over the plains, the cut-over regions ami waste lands of this area the Great: Lakes region, properly "termed "clover land," where millions of acres today are not completely utilized by live stock, all provide abundant pas ture that is well adapted for beef production. The West, with its vast plains, wide prairies and the resources of forests and streams, may be used by the boef producer to even better advantage, al though overstocking is a factor not to be overlooked. Will this vast area of unused pas ture be used for Immediate produc tion? No it's a more difficult prob lem than that. To use sonic of it in volves an expense not justified by pres ent prices of cattle. Tln danger of overstocking, with its attendant loss in profit. Is frequent ly emphasized, but the decreased re turns due to overstocking should be considered as well. When the num ber of cattle on a given area fail to keep the grass short, that which is allowed t'o. grow becomes less palat able and less nutritive. Moreover, ob jectionable weeds are certain to gain a foothold. Utilization Increases Land Value. By utilizing to the fullest extent the land devoted to pasture the value of the land is increased and greater profit results. A system of careful management makes it possible to use higher-priced land, than has heretofore been used for such, for profitable beef production. The intelligent use of pastures gives a return which com pares favorably with that from the cropping system, but requires less la bor. It is not possible to state just how many cattle should be allowed to the acre for grazing purposes, because this is determined largely by the quality and stand of grass which is, of course, variable. In conclusion, it may be said that the beef producer In most sections who will obtain tlie largest net returns Is the man who will stock his pastures so that the grass is kept fairly short, but in good condition. PREPARE LOGGED-OFF LAND FOR PASTURE Time of Seeding Depends Upon When Ground Is Burned. Sufficient Moisture Is Secured From Rains to Cause Good Germination If Seeded in Unsettled Ashes in Late Summer. In preparing logged-off land for pas ture, the time of seeding depends up on when the land is burned over, ac cording to specialists of tlie office of farm management of the United States department of agriculture. If the burn occurs during July, August, or early in September, the seed should be sown in the early fall before the ashes have been settled by the rains. If seeded in the unsettled ashes, the first rains that come will cover the seed sufficiently to secure good germination. If the burn occurs so late in the fall that the seed cannot be sown until during October, it is best to sow the grasses then and wait until in Februray or March to sow the clover. The heaving of the soil during the late fall and winter, a condition caused by alternate thawing and freez ing, often destroys young clover unless it is sown early enough in the fall to get a good start. If the fall-sown clover Is destroyed in this way it may be reseeded during February or March. When sown in the early spring the heaving of the soil helps to cover the seed. PROPER TIME TO CUT WHEAT May Be Done With Safety When Straw Has Lost Its Color and Grains Are Not Hardened. Wheat may be cut with safety when the straw has lost nearly all its green color and the grains are not entirely hardened. If cut sooner than this, shriveled kernels will result. If left standing until fully ripe, a bleached appearance, due to the action of the elements, often results, and loss from shattering may ensue. Wheat that Is fully ripe is also more difficult to handle. Where the area of wheat Is large, cutting should begin as early as it can be donf safely.—Farmers' Bulletin No. SSr, United States depart ment of agriculture. rnvejjm!
