But the lig] tractor that won't "stay put" wh( it is being used for belt work c~" be the source of a great deal eli ritation and extra work to tl farmer who has to stop frequent to tighten the belt and get t tractor back in line. Even on firm ground a lig ' tractor often moves from vibrati~ and a heavy load. And on mud ground it may do a lot of slippi~ and sliding around. This probl 3!i can be serious enough to dlscourag~ use of the tractor on some belt ~ob~ If you are having such "jitter" troubles with your tractor, here's a tip from a Montana farmer which may help make your tasks a lot easier. Set a heavy stake or fence post firmly in the ground about 10 feet behind the spot where the tractor is to be placed. Then attach a tackle block or a wire stretcher to the drawbar and the post. This will hold the tractor steady on any kind of ground and the belt can be tightened easily by pulling up the tackle block or wire stretcher.

They also learn how Bang's disease, mastitis, grubs, and parasites may be controlled. Incentives to achieve outstand- ing records in 4-H dairy produc- tion are provided in the form of Merit awards. These comprise medals to first and second place county winners, and $25.00 U. S. Savings Bonds to eight state cham- pions.
