by Warren T. Ferrell Humane Hog Killing Oscar Mayer Co. in its Madison, Wisconsin and other plants will soon begin to slaughter hogs by running them on a belt through a chamber filled with carbon diox- ide gas. They expect to handle 600 hogs per hour by this more hu- mane and efficient method. Baled Silage Baled grass silage is a new ven- ture being tested by agronomists at Minnesota University. They cut the hay, wilt it to 40 percent mois- ture, and then bale it. The bales are stacked on a sheet of plastic which is pulled closely around them and stapled tight. The re- suiting silage is of low moisture content and keeps well, while the bales are easy to handle. Research Aims To Keep Moisture Where It Falls "Stop the run-off! .... Keep our precious moisture where it falls!" Both could be slogans for a re- :search project started in the Uni- versity of Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station. Western stockmen are faced with two hard facts: (1) The a- mount of moisture for plant growth controls the amount of fo- rage on the range and can make or break a stockman; (2) The West's moisture frequently runs THE SUNDANCE TIMES Sundance, Wyo. Oct. 28, 1957 off the range because it often comes as hard rains or as snow that blows off the flats into drifts on the lee side of hills. Station researchers can't control the climate or weather--but they believe they can find a way to stop more moisture where it falls and to keep it there for growing more grass and other range plants. They have started tests using level contour ridges--sometimes cal- led dikes-on gently sloping range land. The dikes are about 300 feet long and 12 inches high. Each has a sodded break opposite the cen- ter of the dike just to make any run-off spread and go around each dike. Plans call for planting a tall, coarse, faily non-palatable grass on each ridge. Researchers want to see if the grass will help to keep snow from blowing off the range, They are favoring giant wildrye for the job although they are con- sidering other coarse grasses. According to Governor Camp- bell's letters in the Wyoming State Archives in Cheyenne the Sioux Indians on May 10, 1869 made a raid into the Wind River Valley, stole a number of horses and mules, murdered four white men and escaped. In 1871 Cheyenne was the larg- est town between Omaha and Ogden and trains stopped here for thirty minutes for meal stop, according to records in the Wyo- ming State Historical Department.
