dry months of July and August are’
the critical ones for pastures.
Pastures which are on soils that
are in need of lime and fertilizer
make cpiite a contrast with pastures
which have enough lime and fer-
tilizers und are seeded to adapted
varieties of,pasture gruss. In the

ers who have not limed or fertiliz-
