[ll l III I I I .~ WITH THE Perth Co-operative Association Truck REDUCED HAULING CHARG~ TO WEST FARC~ FULLY INSURED FREE PICK-UP List Now With John Hyndman Manager Hybrid Corn Trials-- Considerable publicity has been given to the advantages and good re- turns that have been received from hybrid corns in the major corn belt states. However, there is no magic in the term "hybrid," and it is just as necessary to have a hybrid that is adapted and acclimated to the com- munity as it has been with the regu- lar open pollinated varieties. Tests made by the experiment sta- tion the past few years have indicat- ed that some of the earliest commer- cial hybrids have possibility and war- rant trial. In order that first hand information may be obtained on how they might be suited to this terri- tory, two trials are being conducted in the county. The varieties being tried are Minhybrid 402, classed as 85 to 90 day maturity and Kingcrost E-5, classed as 90-day maturity. The trials are being conducted by Henri Boucher of Rolette and Oliver Fagerlund of Rolls in cooperation with the NDAC extension service. Results will be published this fall. Tree Plantings Gain-- New tree plantings are appearing this spring on farms throughout Ro- lette county. They are belong set out by farmers as a 1940 AAA soil conservation practice. T~is year $30 may be earned in addition to the reg- ular soil-building goal by planting tree~r~e " county Agricultural Conserv- ation committee estimates that more than 15,000 tree seedlings will be Just about pay for the seedlings and the cost of putting them in. About the only weather situation which offers much hope of controlling grasshoppers is a long period--two weeks or more--of cold, snowy or wet weather after a big egg hatch. Such conditions kill the young hop- pers by starvation, otherwise the in- sects seem to be able to stand severe exposure to cold and moisture. Homemakers club work in which more than 13,000 North Dakota rur- al women are enrolled is developing leadership and providing practical training on home problems. Hun- dreds of communities are being bene- fitted by the activities of these clubs and club members. Milk Cooling Aid.~--- The system which lends itself best to the average North Dakota farm-- I the water cooling tank--has proved itself superior to air cooling for quickly reducing the temperature of fresh milk and cream, according to Don Murray, NDAC Extension Serv- ice dairyman. Rapid cooling of milk and cream is emphasized by Murray as an essential step in production of quality dairy products which will bring larger market returns to the farmer and which will encourage eor~- sumers to use more dairy foods. Dairy interests in North Dakota are now developing a plan of cooperation in a nationwide advertising program designed to increase consumption of planted this spring by AAA farmers, butter and other dairy products, About 15 farmers have inquired at Murray points out. "But," he adds, the office about this practice, Which "producers should be prepared to turn must have the prior approval of the out high quality milk and cream so county committee before it is carried out," said Willfred Johnston, com- mittee chairman. According to information received from John Thompson, NDAC Exten- sion Service forester, trees may be planted as late as June 1 if the seed- lings are kept dormant until then. Much tree planting has already been completed by AAA farmers to date. T~his phase of the 1940 program will wind up the latter part of May. ~ompson said that seedl4ngs m~y be obtained from the State Forest nursery at Bottineau. Still available are the following trees: Ru~lan olive, green ash, Chinese elm, boXelder artd cottonwood. Mr Johnson points out that AAA farmers can earn ~n ~tra $$0 by p~anting tre~, a~d ~0e ~e ~$0 will that they will be in position to benefit from the advertising." Experimental tests comparing water with air for cooling milk and cream showed that nnstirred rJilk exposed to cold air cooled from 98 degrees to 86 degrees in 60 minutes. Milk setting in cold water cooled down from 98 degrees to 58 degrees in 60 minutes. This advantage of water cooling is significant because nearly every farm can arrange a satisfactory cooling tank with well or spring water. Air cooling facilities, on the other hand are not so readily provided. Ice well refrigerators are among the most practical of air cooling arrangements and should be used to store the cooled product. "We are approaching the warm summer monfhs when cold air is not available to do a partial job of cool- ing," Murray says, "so it is important that a cooling tank be provided on the farm to insure high quality cream and the best market price. "Cream from each separation should be cooled immediately and then added to the cream which has previously been cool- ed. North Dakota well water is gen- erally cold enough to do an effective ob of cooling milk and cream." Plans for constructing a simple )arrel, or larger tank type cooler, can be secured from your county ag- ent. Ready made coolers are also sold by creameries and other supply deal- ers. Neglect to use all reasonable means to control grasshoppers this year will be a sufficient basis for voiding crop insurance contracts, say officials of the Federal Crop Insurance Corpora- tion. In other words, an effort must be made to protect crops from grass- hopper loss if claims for damage are to be paid under the insurance pro- gram.
