More Alfalfa Planned
In Caswell County
More alfalfa will probably be
seeded by Caswell County Negro
farmers this year than ever be
fore, reports W. N. Knight, Negro
county agent for the State College
A large number of farmers have
sowed peas and spread manure
on their land in prepration for
seeding acreage to this hay crop.
Many of them are also having
their soil analyzed.
Knight said farmers are also
showing much interest in the seed
ing of permanent pasture mixtures.
Thirty-five farmers attended a re
cent meeting at which the county
agent discussed the importance of
providing adequate grazing for
livestock. The farmers were very
much interested and decided they
would seed at least one acre to
permanent pasture this year.
Walter Wiley of Hightowe r , who
plans to go into beef and dairy
cattle production, has decided to
seed 10 acres in improved pasture
during the year. He will use a
mixture of Ladino clover and or
chard grass. He expects his graz.
ing program to save him cons’der
able money in feed bills.
Dairy Farmer Reaps
Return from Pasture
W. B. Franks, dairy farmer of
Raleigh, Route 4, reaped a profit
able return from an 18-acre tem
porary pasture which ho seeded
last fall, according to J. L. Eeit
zel, Wake County farm agent for
the State Extension Service.
Mr. Franks seeded 50 pounds of
Italian ryegrass and 15 pounds of
crimson clover per acre. At the
time of seeding he applied 600
pounds per acre of 8-8-8 fertilizer
which he mixed on his farm, and
this spring he applied about 24
pounds of pure nitrogen per acre.
On March 8, Mr. Franks smarted
grazing the pasture with 63 head
of cattle which were then jproduc
ing 130 gallons of milk per day.
Twelve days later the cattle had
increased their milk production to
178 gallones per day.
Prior to the grazing the cows
were being fed $32 wort hos hay
per day. The reduction in cost
of hay material and the increase in
milk production meant and addi
tional profit of more than S7O per
day, the dairyman reported. At
the same time the cattle were get
ting in better physical condition
