Crops For Poultry
Grazing Is Subject
Of Recent Bulletins
Why poultry should have access to
green grazing crops and the kinds of
crops to grow for this purpose an:
explained in a new bulletin of the
North Carolina Experiment Station
and now available to poultry growers
in the State.
The publication discusses the vita
min requirements for poultry, the
nutrition qualities of green feeds, the
essentials of a desirable grazing crop,
and those crops which may be grown
in succession throughout the year. The
work reported upon was conducted
largely at the State College poultry
plant and while the publication is
written in popular form, the facts are
founded upon careful scientific re
search. "I believe this bulletin will be of
tremendous value to poultry growers,-'
says Roy S, Dearstyne, one of the
authors and head of the State College
department of poultry. "For years
we have been asked the question which
we have sought to solve by this work.
I suspect that hundreds of letters
have been written us in the last few
years in which growers have request
ed the kind of information given in
this publication. 1 am hopeful that
it will be of some service to the in
dustry.'' f, R. V. Winters, Director of the
Station, says this publication is an
entirely new departure in the South
and the first of its kind in the field.

agronomy was associated with -Mr.

While it may appear that moles
cause tremendous damage to field
crops, flower beds and vegetable gar
dens, the little animals are more in
terested in the insects and worms
which they capture than the seeds
which may come their way.
"We are all familiar with the wind
ing ridges of dirt raised by the mole
in making his runways. Ihese are
feeding tunnels made as the little ani
mal searches for the worms and bugs
which are his standard diet," says A.
E. Oman, rodent control leader for
the United States Biological Survey
at State College. "The home dens
are larger cavities and ordinarily are
located under stumps, rucks, stone
walls or other surface objects. Some
times field mice invade these runways
and complete the destruction of plant
ed corn or garden seeds pushed aside
by the mole and thus cause the blame
to fall on him."
Moles are not entirely innocent of
eating seed ami grain, Oman says.
Often they will do much damage to
bulb flowers. In eating corn, for in
stance, the animal hulls the germ end
and eats the germ. It does not eat
the starchy portion. A mole may
burrow down a corn nnv for 100 yards
and eat only the germ of five or six
kernels. After that, it pushes them
aside as so much clay and seeks to
satisfy its avid appiiite for worms
Field mice on the other hand may
do considerable damage to grain crops
especially where they adjoin a straw
field or brush' land.
Moles may lie cunt rolled by trapping1

Brief News Items
Gets More Hay
Mixing Mommoth Yellow and La-1
redo soybeans resulted in a larger
crop of hay for P. E. Burch of Moun-;
tain Park in Surry County who has
been following this practice for some
time now with excellent results.
Last year Mr. Burch conducted a
definite demonstration with County!
Agent J. W. Crawford. Six plots
were used and the soybeans were I
planted on June 2.'.). In the first plot,
Mr. Burch planted seven pecks of seed
per acre, using one bushel of the
Mammoth Yellow beans and one-half
bushel of Laredo beans. In the sec
ond plot, he used 8 pecks of Mammoth
Yellow; third, iila pecks of Octooton;
fourth, U pecks of Biloxi; fifth, 7
pecks of Hollybrook, and sixth, 5 pecks
The mixture of Mammoth Yellows
and Laiedus produced -1,771 pounds
of cured buy an acre. The Mammoth
Yellows alone gave :j,518 pounds; the
Otootans, '3,51. .pounds; the Biloxi,
3,515 pounds; the Hollybrook, J.181
pounds, and the Laredos alone gave
The hay was cut on September JO
and weighed on September
Under conditions in Surry County,
the Mammoth Yellow beans usually
give a good yield of hay but Mr.
Burch has found that by mixing this
variety with the Laredos, he secures
an even better yield. This is due to
the Mammoth Yellows supporting the
more recumbent Laredos and thus en-
aDling a oetier nai vesi. i no i..aicu.
beans also add to the value of the hay
because of the finer stems and the
abundance of foliage.

Burch has liecn following this plan of

And Answers On
be best to plant
the acreage and
conditions would it
cher .) seed or cut
plant pedigreed seed?
Answer; Planting cheap seed is the
most expensive investment a farmer
can make under any condition. Plant
a smaller acreage to the best seed
obtainable. The smaller planting will,
in many eases, produce as much as
the larger acreage planted to cheap
seed. The land thus released may be
sown to legumes such as cowpeas,
clover, or lespedeza as a soil build
ing or grazing crop.
I. E. A. QUACKER
Question: How soon after farrow
ing should a sow be put on full feed?
Answer: The pigs should be at least
two weeks old before the sow is put
on a full ration. No feed at all should
be given the first (lav after farrowing
with a small amount of shipstuff, fed
as a slop, on the second day. The
ration is then gradually increased
each day with the animal getting a
fuli ration on the fourteenth day.
Question: How far apart should 1
.-et my corn rows to plant soybeans
in the middles and how much seed
it take to plant an acre?
.nswer: Corn rows should be. set
about six feet apart where soybeans
are to be grown in the middles. This
allows for cultivation without damage
to the beans. With the corn rows six
feel apaif, it takes about twenty
pounds of seed to plant an acre.
