Reduces Interest Rate
The interest rate to members of
the Asheville Production Credit As
sociation was reduced one-half of
one per cent on all money advanc
ed beginning February 24, W. H.
Overall, secretary - treasurer, an
nounced for the board of directors
of the Asheville Production Credit
"This is made possible," said Mr.
Overall, "by the continued ready
sale of Federal Intermediate credit
bank debentures to the investing
public bearing low rates of interest
and the favorable operating results
of the Federal intermediate credit
banks and the production credit as
sociations during 1938." Mr. Overall
explained that the association dis
counts the farmers' notes which it
takes with the Federal Intermediate
Credit Bank of Columbia.
"The new rate will be four and
one-half per cent per year and as,
usual interest will be charged for
the period which the members ac
tually have the money," continued
Mr. Overall. "The reduction also is
effective in all the other production
credit associations throughout the
'This is the lowest rate at which
production credit has, been made
available and the lowest discount
rate made by the Federal inter
mediate credit banks. Based upon
the present volume of business this
interest reduction will result in an
nual isavings of approximately $800,
000 to the 256,000 members of the
535 production credit associations
in the United States."
The Asheville Production Credit
Association, according to Mr. Over
all last year did a business totaling
$95,700.00. "These loans," he said,
"are made for agricultural purposes
and repayments are made at the
time when the members are best able
to pay for the sale of crops or
livestock or other operations financ
ed. Some loans are made on the
budget plan in which members get
a commitment from the association
to advance to them sums, covering
certain periods, thus enabling them
to. be sure of sufficient funds to
carry them through their agricul
tural operations and yet not have
to pay interest on the entire
amount for the whole season. The
budget plan provides for advancing
part of the entire amount as, need
ed." Meat Demonstrations
Scheduled In March
Howard H. White, specialist of
the National Live Stock and Meat
Board, and C Dalton Swaffer of
the State College Animal Husban
dary Department, will conduct a
series of meat lecture-demonstrations
in five cities in the state dur
ing the first two weeks in March.
The schedule of the meetings is
as follows: Charlotte, March 2 and
3; Raleigh, March 6; Durham,
March 7; Greensboro, March 8; and
Winston-Salem, March 9 and 10.
Earl H. Hostetler, professor ' of
the college animal husbandry de
partment who arranged for the
meetings, says they are designed to
impress retail meat dealers, with op
portunities for stepping-up meat
sales and thus be of assistance to
livestock growers and feeders.
Citing the value of the livestock
industry, Prof. Hostetler said that
in 1937 the cash inconie from the
sale of meat animals totaled $16,
242,000. Of this amount, $10,190,000
was received from the sale of hogs.
$5,919,000 from the sale of cattle
and calves, and $133,000 from the
sale of sheep.
In the lecture-demonstrations, the
retailer groups will be shown that
they have an important task in
selling the farmer's meat products.

State College Answers
Q. How many acres of corn
should be planted for .silage to take
care of a dairy herd ? '
A. This, of course, depends upon
the number of animals and the fer
tility of the soil. The average Jer
sey or Guernsey cow will consume
from 30 to 35 pounds of silage a
day while the Ayrshire and Holstein
will take from 40 to 50 pounds. On
this basis, from 3 to 4J4 tons: of
silage should be provided foreach
mature cow in th herd. The ton
nage required should then be com
puted by the number of cows in the
herd. Average corn will yield about
one ton of silage for each five
bushels of grain produced and the
acreage necessary can be estimated
on this basis.
Q. What is the best method for
the control of blue mold in . to
bacco plant beds ?
A. Three methods of control have
given results under varying condi
tions. Two of these are by fumiga
tion with benzol and paradicholoro
benzol while the third is a spray
treatment. All these methods are
described in Extension Grcular No.
229 "Blue Mold of Tobacco and Its
Control" and copies may be had
free upon application to the Agri
cultural Editor, State college.
Q. What causes low hatchability
A. There are a number of factors
which cause eggs to have low
hatching qualities and chief among
these are diet, management, and
health of the breeding flock. An
unbalanced diet, overcrowding and
poor ventilation in the house, and
the presence of disease in the flock
all tend to the production of eggs
of low hatchability. ,The.s.e factors
should be carefully checked and
corrected. In addition, the incubator
should be inspected for improper
humidity , and temperature during
the incubation period.

No Forest Fires On
Since the beginning of the; new
year, the Nantahala forest has gone
without a forest fire. Forest ser
vice officials look with pride upon
this excellent record which is due
in no small measure to the full
hearted cooperation being given by
the residents of the forest. A check
of past records shows -that at vari
ous times as many as 10 to 15 fires
occurred during the months of Jan
uary and February. ,
The worst fire month, March, is
just commencing. High winds and
extensive brush burning will make
fire conditions very hazardous. All
residents of the Nantahala forest
are . asked to be especially careful
with fire. Brush burners should ar
range to obtain brush burning per
mits from either the forest ranger
at Andrews or at Franklin. Visitors
to the forest should be especially
careful in their smoking and in
building camp fires.
