Question: Do you recommend
black locust for forest planting?
Answer: Yes. The black locust
grows very rapidly and is one of the
most durable of woods in contact
with the soil. This makds it de
sirable for fence posts and other
building material that is put in or
on the soil. It is also one of the le
gumes of the tree family and will
enrich poor, eroded, or other deplet
ed soil. A mixed planting of black
locust, with pine is recommended
for piedmont and eastern Carolina.
Question: Should a cow be milked
clean up to freshening time?
Answer: Some dairymen follow
this practice but it is not advisable
as it always reduces the milk produc
tion during the following lactation
period and is a heavy drain on the
vitality of the cow. Each cow needs
from one month to six weeks time
before calving to build up bodily
strength and to store up • energy
needed for calving and future milk
Question: How many eggs should
a t hen lay to pay the cost of her
Answer: The number of eggs re
quired naturally fluctuates with the
cost of feed, but a good formula to
follow 1s to divide the price of 100
pounds of feed by the selling price
of eggs per dozen and multiply the
result by thr6e. This will give the
number of eggs 100 hens should lay
each day. From this the aumber
can be figured for any size flock. If
the flock is not paying feed costs,
cull out the low producers. It it is
paying, cull anyway and increase the
profit per bird.
