Bloat Is A Problem
We are approaching what Na-
varro County farmers call the
bloat season. Bloat costs live-
stock producers in Navarro Coun-
ty each year. With the moisture
supply we now have, there are
good prospects for lush spring
grazing which can create a bloat
No sure fire method of con-
trolling bloat has been developed
but research has shown that los-
ses can be reduced.
Here are some recommenda-
tions on how to control or to
keep down bloat when cattle are
grazing on the green pastures.
If they are on a legume pasture,
it should have at least 50 per
cent grass mixed with the le-
gume. If there is no grass in the
legume, the animals should be
left on the legume pasture only
two or three hours at a time,
then they can be removed to an
all grass pasture. Another way
to prevent bloat is to feed ani-
mals some dry hay before they
are put on the green pasture.
After grazing a few days on
just themselves to the amount
of green material they will eat.
It is a good idea to keep close
'observation on all livestock on
green pastures. This is especially
"true if there is a legume present,
because legume plants are the
biggest cause of bloat.
Livestock producers of the
area have tried several remedies
that have shown varying degrees
of results at different research
Penicillin-salt mixtures have
reduced bloat in tests run at
Mississippi State College. Their
work with terramycin have shown
varying degrees of control also.
Some local producers have used
silicone in drinking water and
felt they had reduced bloat but
it was given to the entire herd
so they had no check.
Iowa State College reduced the
severity of bloat by spraying
oils on green chopped alfalfa
or putting it in drinking water.
Soybean oil was used.
Good management is still one
'of our best tools for bloat con-
You and your family will be
happier, healthier and more re
'laxed if you learn to play to-
gether in your own home or back
A new bulletin B-869 “Home-
'made Games How to Make and
Play” gives plans and instruc-
tions for games that your fam-
ily may use in the home or back
yard. The bulletin is available
at the County Agent’s office.
