Continue 4-H Baby
Beef Work On A
Increased production of food crops,
especially meats and meat products,
has been asked by the Government
in 1943. "Therefore," says L. L Case,
extension animal husbandman of N.
C. State College, "the 4-H Baby Beef
Club work should not only be con
tinued, but should be extended into
more counties with more farm boys
and girls taking part."
The only difference in the pro
gram will be that steers must be fat
tened on a practical basis so that,
if necessary, they may be sold at
market prices without a loss of mon
ey, Case said. Exhibitions of all live
stock may be out of the picture for
1943 and for the duration of the war.
This will at least curtail the paying
of premium prices for 4-H calves.
"Also," said the extension work
er, "we now have ceilings on ani
mal carcasses and on retail cuts with
the possibility that ceilings will be
placed on live animals in the near
future. Heat rationing is in immed
iate prospect and will probably lim
it the purchasing of cattle for indi
vidual family consumption."
This means,'the animal husband
man declared, that less emphasis
should be placed on show ring stan
dards. Furthermore, it means that
more home-bred animals should be
fed by boys and girls. Where it is
necessary to acquire steers, they
should be purchased at commercial
feeder calf prices, and just as near
to home as possible in order to avoid
excessive transportation costs.
"Feeding should be on a more
practical basis than ever before," he
said. "It is extremely important that
home-grown feeds be used exclus
ively with the exception of a protein
concentrate for balancing the ra

CERTAIN TYPES OF LIME
INJURIOUS TO POULTRY
A warning to farmers that certain
types of lime and liming materials
are unsuitable for poultry work is
issued by C. F. Parrish, head of the
extension poultry office at N. C.
State College. He says, "there is mis
conception on the part of some far
mers as to lime and liming mater
ials, and how to use them in relation
to poultry work."
Lump lime, burned lime, builders
lime, and caustic lime are all unsuit
able, Parrish said!" These are all cal
cium oxide. The same applies to hy
drated lime, water slaked lime, and
agricultural lmic, which are prepar
ed by adding water to the four types
?"This material," said the exten
sion leader, "is caustic and, if used
on floors or runs, may cause injury
to the bird's feet. When used with
poultry manure, the loss of nitrogen
in the manure will result."

Also recommended, in the order
named, are: Basic furnace slag, Gyp
sum or lundplaster, and wood ashes.
These limes are often added to chick

thought in mind of conserving nitro

be preferable to add superphosphate

Cotton Quotas Vote
Set for December 12
North Carolina cotton producers
will join with others over the Cotton
Belt on Saturday, December 12, in
a referendum on marketing quotas
for the 1943-44 marketing year, ac
cording to G. T. Scott, chairman of
the State AAA committee.
The relerendum was called by
Secretary Wickard in proclaiming
quotas on the 1943 crop. Quotas will
not be in effect, however, unless ap
proved by at least two-thirds of all
producers voting in the referendum.
A total'of 73,291 North Carolina cot
ton producers voted in the referen
dum last year with 69,756 favoring
quotas and 3,535 voting against quo
tas for a majority of 95.2 per cent.
In the entire Cotton Belt 93.9 per
cent of the grow ers favored market
Cotton marketing quotas are pro
vided in the Agricultural Adjust
ment of 1938 under which the Secre
tary of Agriculture must proclaim
quotas in any year in which the cot
ton supply reaches more than 107
per cent of the "normal" supply. The
act defines this "normal" supply as
a normal year's domestic consump
1 tion and exports plus 40 per cent for
' carryover as a margin of safety. The
, indicated supply of 24,700,000 bales
of American cotton for the 1942-43
marketing year is 136 per cent of the
normal supply provided in the AAA
act, Scutt said.
The nation already has nearly
' two years supply of cotton on hand.
I but a larger than usual part of this
I supply is composed of shorter sta
j pies and lower grades. Cotton pro
ducers, wherever practical, have
been asked to shift production to the
longer staple lengths. Quotas never
have been applied to cotton of 1 1-2
inches and longer.
Under the marketing quota sys
I tern, growers may sell free of penal
