Pastures Should Be
Seeded In February
Feed cost per 100 pounds of
milk is only half as much during
the summer pasture 'period as it is
in the winter, says John A. Arey,
dairy .specialist of the State college
extension service, in urging that
adequate pastures be provided for
dairy herds this year.
On some farms where the acre
age in pasture is not adequate to
supply good grazing for the herd
throughout the season, an addition
al acreage should be prepared at
once and .seeded between Febru
ary 15 and March 15," Arey stated.
Because of the likelihood of dry
weather during the spring it is ad
visable to seed during February
from the coast to the mountains.
Later seedings . will give satisfac
tory results in the mountains."
The dairy specialist also advised
that old pastures with thin places
in'th sod be reworked during Feb
ruary. "The.se places should be
scarified with a harrow, res.eeded
and given a coating of manure. If
manure is available the entire pas
ture should be given a light coat
ing during February. On farms
where manure is not available, thin
pasture sods can be improved by
applying 300 to 400 pounds per
acre of b high grade . fertilizer
early in March," Arey explained.
A comparison of two North Carj
olina herds from records of the
Dairy Herd Improvement as,s,ocia
tion shows the economic value of
good pasture. One herd had ade
quate pasture and the other had
very little. The comparative feed
costs per 100 pounds of milk ran
close together until May, then the
herd with, the good pasture was
fed at the cost of 70 cents per 100
pounds of milk while the other
herd's cost was $1.17. This wide dif
ference continued through October,
with one month showing a varia
tion1 of 58 cents and $1.29.
