2,460 Toll in Texas
According to Dr. Geo. W. Cox,
state health officer, pneumonia
caused approximately 2,460 deaths
during the past year in Texas, a
total which is entirely too high.
This disease is most prevalent dur-
ing the winter and spring seasons.
Pneumonia is caused by a germ
called the pneumococcus, which
many of us have lurking in our
throats ready to start trouble,
when our resistance to it is lower-
ed. We can keep up our resistance
by avoiding undue fatigue and un-
necessary exposure to extreme
weather condition. When we go
outside in cold weather sufficient
wraps should be worn to protect
us. Keeping the temperature of
our homes as low as it consistent
with comfort will greatly lessen
the difficulties encountered in ad-
justing ourselves to the cold when
we leave the house.
Another method of prevention
in pneumonia is not to ncglest a
cold, for the common cold often
results in pneumonia when neg-
lected. A person with a severe cold
should stay at home, and call his
physician for advice if tempera-
ture persist or the cold lingers on.
He should follow his physician’s
advice until the cold has disap-
peared. A patient may really have
beginning pneumonia when he
thinks it is only a cold. If the
physician’s advice is sought, he
will have an opportunity to start
treatment early if pneumonia is
present, or develops in such cases.

The point in the cotton program
that Burleson county farmers feel
is most important is the soil build-

proper seed inoculation is a neces-
sary phase of legume-growing, if
the producer wants to get the bost
benefit from his winter cover crop.
Fertilization is just as necessary,
says the agronomist, in areas
recommends 200 to 400 pounds of j
20 percent superphosphate per
acie, or its equivalent, while on
light, sandy soils and old fields, it
will take 300 to 400 pounds 0-14-7
commercial fertilizer per acre to j
get the job done. In the timbered
section of East Texas, the 0-14-7 i
application is especially important. |
To give farmers an idea of what |
they ean expect in the way of in-
creased yields through planting
winter legumes, Miller quotes
some results chalked up by Texas
A. and M. college agricultural ex-
periment substations. Fertilized

creased the yield of cotton more
that 100 pounds per acre on sandy
land at experiment substations at
Nacodgoches and Tyler. At the
Temple Experiment Substation,
cotton following hubam sweet clo-
ver which was harvested for seed
and then turned under, made a
five-year average of 315 pounds
of lint, compared with 165 pounds
on land where cotton was grown
continuously without clovers.
Losses from cotton rot were also
greatly reduced by the clover.
Miller labels winter legume

in the current Seven Step Cotton
Program which thousands of farm-
ers are carrying on in Texas. The
Seven Step program, a balanced
cotton farming plan, includes “soil
improvement,” and inoculated,
fertilized legumes, turned under
preceding cash crops, is a money-
making soil improvement step.
The agronomist is urging Texas
farmers to obtain their legume
seed, fertilizer and inoculant and
be ready for legume planting
when soil moisture permits.

' i ripply of grain and pi" loin
* food this winter probably will
not meet national requiremenls.This
means that every bit of good forage
— hay and silage—will have to be
used caretully to produce the most
possible milk and stretch scarce
grain and supplements.
To stretch your supply of grain
and feed mix, follow the feeding
practices proved through the
years by good dairymen every-
What you’re after, of course, is
the highest possible production from
eacli cow. You want to give each
cow the feed she deserves but not
more than she deserves.
You have to know two tilings
definitely—each cow’s daily pro-
duction and how your roughage
stacks up as to quality. First —
it stands to reason that a good
producer requires more feed than
a poor producer. Don't guess.
Weigh the milk from each cow
occasionally, night and morn-
ing. Then you’ll know which
cows to favor.
It's equally true- that the better
your bay and silage the less grain
and concentrate you'll need. Good
leafy alfalfa will normally need
only a little grain added for even
a good producer. But mixed hay of
average quality will need more
than just grain to make it into a
good ration. And hay that has been
rained on will need a full supple-
ment of both grain and meal plus
The principles are important any
time but this year when a heavy
supply of milk is needed and feed
is short, they’re more important
Need Extra Care
A crystal hall would be a mighty
ri handy thing around a dairy
farm—if it worked well. But even
without a crystal ball here’s one
thing I can predict:
Your cows which are freshening
this fall will be better producers if
you give them the right kind of care
before, at and after calving.
First give the cow a six-to-
eight-week dry period so that
her feed and strength can go
into development of a healthy
calf. Remember, most of a calf's
weight is gained in the last two
months before birth.
Then just before freshening, say a
week or two ahead of time, the cow
should get a ration which has a some-
what laxative effect. Good fall pas-
ture or corn silage will serve.
But if you don’t have either at
this time, oats and wheat bran or
oats and linseed meal will do the job.
Warm feed and warm water in
the first day or two after calving
is recommended, but make the
feeding light. Increase the feed-
ing gradually, say at a rate of
about a half pound per day for
the first week.
Maybe it takes a little time and
trouble, but you'll see results in
healthier calves, in better health of
your cows and in the greater milk
production you will get from the
same cows, if you take that time
* * *
Any cold weather which may be
sneaking up on you will reduce
the level of the thermometer
reading outdoors but ir won't
bother the inside temperature
of a cow in the least. Milk is
warm when it is freshly drawn.
Bacteria multiply fast in warm
milk. Cool it quickly to guard
quality, winter or summer.
* * *
Now's the time to locate that high
grade sire for your herd. You’ll be
breeding your heifers for fall fresh-
ening soon. Breed them to the best
dairy bulls available. Then you’ll get
heifer calves you'll be proud to
raise for * * .
