This odd but important bit of in formation for dairy farmers arises from animal behavior studies at the U. S. Department of Agricul ture's Dairy Field Station in Jean eretta. La. Any sudden change In herd makeup may be- responsible for a temporary drop of as much as five per cent in milk and but terfat production, it was shown by the studies. Such changes, it seems, create excitement in the herd, marked by butting, kicking, and threatening. Only when the "intruder" is finally accepted is peace restored. This may take many days when a total ly strange cow is added to an es Green Pastures Judging Set The deadline for judging pastur es for Green Pastures awards is Augyst 31, L. V. McMahan, assist- . ant farm agent reminded farmers today. McMahan said that a certified ^ list of farmers eligible for citations and plaques must be submitted to the rules and awards committee of the state-wide program by Septem- . ber 10. The creen Pastures program encourage the production of high was organized several years ago to quality, lo wcost forage for the ani- 1 mals now on North Carolina farms . and to make possible the expansion of livestock enterprises in North Carolina. ' Each farmer who establishes and maintains one acre of Ladina-grass pasture perr animal unit is eligible for a citation; each farmer who reaches the state goal of 1% acres or more of Ladlno clover-grass pas tures per animal unit si eligible for an "Honor Farm" metal plaque. Farmers may substitute either an acre of white clover-blue grass for one-half acre of Lad i no-grass; one acde of supplementary grazing for one-half acre Ladion-grass; equal acreage of alfalfa, sericea, tall fes cue or Costal Bermuda; 2V4 tons silage or one ton of hay for one quarter acre Ladlno-grass; or one acre of properly irrigated Ladino grass for 1% acres of un-irrigated Ladino-lgrass. No option may sub stitute for more than half the Lad .ino-grass acreage.

Even returning a cow to the herd after she has been absent causes some readjustment. This may re quire several days if the cow has been absent for as much as six months or more. If she has been a way only a few days, on the other hand, herd business will not be noticeably interrupted. J 4 Inches To 4 Feet No Oth?rStw In Its Price Class Cuts As Fast!

Dead Tree Can 1 Seem Healthy Recently two logger* in the Tu?- 1 juittee mountains approached a 5iant yellow poplar tree. It was tall-bodied, large and without a limb for almost 80 feet up its trunk. It had the appearance of a prized veneer-log tree. Then the loggers' power saw went to work on the undercut. As the saw teeth bit deeper, the clean light-colored shavings changed to lark brown, punky-looking streaks. t The fears of the loggers were im- { mediately aroused. Soon the worst j was confirmed, for when the tree j crashed to the ground, the loggers ( Found not sound solid wood, but a | rotted hollow shell of a tree. , Here was a tree at whose heart i fungus disease had been goughing, undected, for decades ! The tree, if sound, would have brought $75 at the stump. It ' brought nothing. The time used by the loggers in cutting the tree down was wasted. The space the huge monarch of the forest occup ied in the woods for many decades was denied to other trees, so this too was wasted. It was a total loss. ,i Millions of trees, large and small, are silently but certainly killed, maimed, weakened, and scarred each year in the forests of America. Forest economists estimate that the timber lost to forest diseases and insects in the United States each year amount to 6,000,000,000 board feet, or enough lumber to build 600,000 new American homes. For almost the entire SO years of its existence the Forest Service has been fighting insects and dis ease on national forests.

Mo Poultry Parasites Are Beneficial No poultry parasites are good for alrds. They cause stunted growth, emaciations and loss of vitality in growing birds and may reduce pro duction in layers, says Dr. R. S. Dearstyne of the State College poultry science department. But few flocks in the state are free from some degree of infesta tion. Autopsy findings of the State College poultry science depart ment show that out of 2,018 birds inder 11 weeks of age, 3 1/10 per :ent showed external or internal MLrasites or both. Of <00 birds from 11 weeks to six months of age, 14 i/10 per cent revealed parasite in festation. while of 1,200 adult birds 12% per cent showed this condi tion. If the infestation of parasites is severe, the worms retard the pas sage and utilization of food and in crease susceptibility to disease. Birds with a severe infestation of reund worms, for instance, show a loss in appetite, drooping wings, ruffled feathers, general weakness, and often the birds show a diarr hea. In slight infestations, these symptons do not always appear and postmortem examination is the only sure method of confirming if birds have internal parasites. As" is the case of most disease troubles, the internal parasites problem in chickens should be ap proached on the basis of preven tion, Dearstyne emphasizes. This means clean ranges that have been rested between groups of birds using them; elimination of wet, shady areas on the range; separat ing young birds from old birds; avoiding wet Utter.
