This is -just one of the many proofs

growing potatoes say that with little
attention and favorable weather it is
not uncommon to grow 250 bushels

Fall Freshened Cows
Produce Most Milk
Usually the cow bred during the
latter part of January or in February
will freshen in early fall and will
produce more butterfat through a
twelve-months period than whjen
bred to freshen in the spring.
"The cow that freshens in the fall
does not suffer from hot weather and
flies during the period of her heav
iest milk flow as does the cow that
freshens" in the spring," suggests A.
C. Kimrey of the dairy extension of
fice at State College. "The rush of
the summer work is over in the fall,
and the owner has more time tp care
for the cow during this heavy pro
ducing period. Then, too, the prices
for butterfat are usually better in
winter than in summer. December
butterfat often sells for 10 to 12
cents a pound more than May and
Mr. Kimrey finds that a majority
of the creameries in North Carolina
ha3 a surplus of butter during the
summer months but a scarcity in win
ter. This means that much of the pro
duct must be consigned t.
