How the pasture is handled during ;
the mid-sunimei season determines
the amount and quality of the. graz
ing to he obtained from it during the
ramindcr of the year.
"There are two big things to look
out for with the pastures in mid-sum
mer," says Sam J. Kirby, pasture
specialist at State College. If weeds
and bushes are allowed to grow, the
grass will be shaded and the sad in
jured. Uneven grazing will also re
duce both the quality and quantity
! of the herbage. Some pastures got
'off to a poor start this spring he
| cause of the cool, dry weather. This
provided a favorable environment for
weeds, native graces and sedges liut
was hurtful to new plantings of tame
grasses. Even :>lci pastures were
II thf^e weeds are allowed to grow
they will rob the pasture plants of
light, moisture and plant food, states
Mr. Kirby. All i last u res in which
the weeds have made a start, should
Hushes should be cut also. Some
shade is good for the livestock that
uses a pasture but the close, dense
shading produced by low-growing
bushes and shrubs will kill the jjrass
and clover plants. Bushes are espec
ially bad in pastures newly seeded on
cutover or recently cleared land.
Mr. Kirby finds that uneven graz
ing is another of the detriments to
good pastures in North Carolina. This
results when not enough animals are
placed on the grass to keep the sod
grazed evenly. When only a few
animals are in the pasture, they will
grazen heavily in some places and
allow the other parts to grow up un
hindered. These grasses and clovers
growing tall and going to seed be
come hard, fibrous and unpalatable,
whereas had they been properly maz
ed, would have been succulent, tender
and palatable. If grazing is uneven,
mow the parts not grazed or better
still add a few more dairy cows to
the farm, states .Mr. Kirby.

Good Elimination Is Essential to Good
THE kidneys are the blood filters.
If they fail to function properly
there is apt to be a retention of toxic
poisons in the blood. A dull, languid
feeling and, sometimes, toxic back
aches, headaches, and dizziness are
symptoms of this condition. Further
evidence of improper kidney func
tion is often found in burning or
scanty passage of secretions. Each
year more and more people are learn
ing the value of Doan's Pills, a
stimulant diuretic, in this condition.
