Warren T. Ferrell, County Agent Trips Mean MoreShrink raising cattle .a long from market 'have two strikes 'them. They have a trans- cost and ,a cost result- from loss in ,animal weight. all shi,pperss should with shrink even if `they Only an hour or two away the market. In fact, weight is greatest during .the first or 3 hours. Cattle lose the weight during the second in ,transit. After this, continues but at a de- rate. LOn 'the average, will increase up to about 10 percent by the time the feed and rest stop is made. .stop cuts *the shrink back 7.5 percent. Weigh,t loss then continues until animals have lost between 10 and 11 percent of `their shipping weigh,t by ,the sec- ond feed and rest stop (about 80 hours after shipping). Time for fill-back pays off the most for cattle in transit over 10 hours, bu,t it also decreases shrink Josses substantially if cattle have been in transit for only 2 hours. ,Body wei,ght losses during mar- keting are caused by distu~rbing and upsetting the animals. 1. Loading, unloading, jostling about in a moving ;truck or rail car, change of environment, .and dif- feren,t handlers produce nervous disturbances in the animals which cause not only :belly shrink but tissue shrink as well. Soil Sampling An open ~al.1 is an exceLlen,t time to collect soil samples. Take soil samples carefully. A soil test is no better than the soil sample on which it is made. Special pa- :per bags and blank soil history ~orms can be obtained from the County Agent. Soil tests measure the content of a~ailable plant nutrients in the soils and help determine what $ertilfzers can be profi`tal)ly used. This service is free. Recom- mendations will ~be returned by mail - generally in 7 - 10 days. Planting Tulips Tulips, unlike many other spring flowering bulbs, can be planted until the ground freezes. Bulbs such as daffodils, crocus, hyacinths etc. should be planted up to 12 inches or deeper in'light- er soils. The deeper ,planted ,bulbs will not multiply as readily ,as bulbs planted under 6 inches. In ~forcinrg tulips for house plants ----~they should ~be chilled in a re- frigerator ~or 6 weeks before planting. Controlling Lawn Weeds In The Fall Broadle.af weeds tha,t infest lawns are easily controlled in the ,Fall with 2,4D. Use the Amine type as the ~umes are less dam- aging to other plants than the ester type, 2,4D. IDandelions and Plantain can be effectively controlled from now until :freezing weather. Spray on a calm day as drift can be dam- aging to flowers. Use three table- spoons of 2,4D to one gallon of water for each thousand square feet of lawn space.
