Oafs Acreage Shows Gain
In This State
Good livestock. feeders wha;?i!mctts y
consider oats as one of Hie boat
available foods for 'fvostct-k. und
particularly so for youns trro^llus nn
!:nals. Tltu increasing knowledge of i
the value of onti Is evidenced liy the
fart that North '"are,Una farmers
<<- fled for groin "OS.liiS n?;r. 3 to
hi* crop id 193R. or an increase of
'.'5 percent over 1937..

i-otntnon with them are deficient In
prototn. Howovpr, till a deficiency
causes no-worry.to the Southern farinter.
says Karl H. Hosteller. professor
of anlmul husbs'idry at State
College. because he hiis available at
a reasonable price protein-rich supplements
such as cottonseed meal,
soybean meal and peanut meal.
To obtain the most value from
oats In livestock rations, it Is Important
to supplement them with
these proteln-rWh feeds that contain
nutrients which are lacking tn
oats, Prof, Hosteller says- They are
the safest grain tor work stock and
young animals, and most useful In
starting cattle and Sheep in feed.
In the entire Cotton Belt. more
than 4,000.000 acres were seeded to
oats In 1938. Undoubtedly this
greater acreage Is seeded In oats
not only because of thetr value as
grain but also because of their value,
either alone or as a "nurse"
crop, tor winter grazing and for hay.
New fall sown varieties that are
more resistant to cold weather have
also contributed tx> the increasing
popularity of this crop.
A suggested daily ration tor fdle
horses and mules Is: Oats, two lbs;
cottonseed meal or cake, two pounds
and hay or bundle etover, 12 pounds
For animals at light work, the oats
?tre Increased to four pounds, the
tiay cut to afx pounds, and six lbs
it cotton seed hulls are added.
Oyster shells have been, discovered
4,000 feet underground In tthe
Texas oil fields.
A further decline In farm-mortWPe
debt during 1937 has been rejorted
