Wheat Growers Can
Plant More Wheat
Cross compliance provisions that
would have worked hardship on many
small wheat growers in North Caro
lina have been eased by Secretary of
Agriculture Benson, H. D. Godfrey,
of the State Agricultural Stabilization
and Conservation Committee, has an
Godfrey said that under the new
provision, farmers who have wheat
acreage allotments of less than 15
acres may plant 15 acres of wheat in
1955 and retain their price support
eligibility on all crops except the
wheat. He explained that this means
farmers w r ith small wheat acreage al
lotments can produce 15 acres of
wheat and still have their other crops
—including such allotments as com,
tobacco, cotton, and peanuts—eligible
for price support.
Farmers who want their other crops
• •ible for price support must com
with the other crop acreage allot
ents and stay within the 1952-5.3
acreage of vegetables and potatoes on
the farm to have any of the crops
eligible for price support.
Godfrey said that recent legislation
provides that farmers who plant in

America by 1975 can expect a steel
output of about 1600 pounds per per
son. Thus, for an estimated 1975 pop
ulation of 190,000,000, the national
economy might demand over 150 mil
lion tons of ingot steel.
| The National Association of Manu
facturers cites a statement by B. F.
Fairless, chairman of the United
States Steel Corporation, January, |
1954, in talking of the future of the 1
Mr. Fairless said that even without !
allowing for any increased use of steel
on a per capita basis but simply gear- j
ing the future of the industry to a j
population growth of 45 million in 20
years, an expansion equivalent to 141
large iron and steel plants, with a to
tal anual ingot capacity of 31
tons, would be needed. ,
'excess of any crop acreage allotments!
will be given an opportunity to adjust I
their acreage before harvest. Any
wheat acreage used for hay, silage,
pasture, or as a green manure cover j
crop will not be considered as wheat!
in determining compliance with acre-1
age allotments for the wheat market-1
ing program or for determining eligi-!
bility for price support.
If ans excess acreage is not ad- 1
justed, however, and if any farmer,
“knowingly harvests” in excess of any j
allotment he will lose his eligibility
under the 1955 Agricultural Conser
vation Program. Godfrey cautions
wheat farmers that if they have an,
allotment of less than 15 acres and
plant more than the allotment but
within the “permitted acreage” they
still lose eligibility under ACP.
Godfrey also reminded that farms!
with a wheat acreage of 15 acres or
less are exempt from wheat market

TIMELY FARM QUESTIONS
Question: Is there anything I can
do to prevent prolapse in my chick
ens? Other chickens pick at birds in
this Condition, killing them.
Answer: No. Birds suffering from
prolapse seldom make a recovery. If
the prolapsed bird is located before
the other chickens destroy it, the flesh
is entirely safe for table use. The con
dition arises when the oviduct becomes
loose and protrudes from the vent of
the bird. It is not a disease but a |
physical condition. Some people think |
a high com diet may be related to
prolapse. You might as well expect j
i the appearance of prolapse on a small j'
I scale in your flock.
Question: Is there any way I ean|
j conveniently figure out when is the. i
. best time to market my steers?
Answer: Yes. The price you re-|
ceive for beef cattle varies with the i
| grade and the month when sold. Each j:
grade has a seasonal price pattern, i

Price changes and patterns are in
fluenced by the supply and kind of
cattle marketed each month and by
seasonal changes in consumer demand
for different cuts of meat. Seasonal
price changes for different grades in
North Carolina are very close to
those at Chicago, except for the
“prime” grade. A new publication,
“Seasonal Variations in Beef Prices,”
Extension Folder No. 110, can help
you market your cattle at the right
I time. You can get a free copy from
[your county agent or by writing to
| “Division of Agricultural Information,
IN. C. State College, Raleigh.”
Question: How much pasture do I
