Even with only approximate-
ly .6 inch of rain during 1954,
Ernest Ingenhuett, located four-
teen miles northwest of Boerne,
has one pasture that is putting
out a good growth of grass even
,while stocked with cows. Little
bluestem, big bluestem, King
Ranch bluestem, and Indian-
grass all are from % to 1 foot
high. This pasture was rested
last summer and fall. It has had
other rest too at different times
since it has been cleared. Cows
and goats have been the type of
livestock usfed on this pasture.

The problem of flood and
water shortages will never be
solved until we restore the or-
ganic matter to the soil.

Be sure to plan to attend the
range tour at Boerne May 4th.
It will be held at 2:00 p. m. on
Albert Schwope’s place west of
Boerne Qff the John’s Road. The
affects of the drought and fu-
ture needs of the range will be
studied. Many of our plants are
dead, some partly dead, while
others are wear. When rain does
come, something will cover the
ground. Make plans now to make
this coverage grass a grass that
will produce high tonage per
acre and furnish good soil pro-
tection. If no plans are made,
the coverage will be weeds and
grasses of low quality and pro-

Paul Soell has a nice stand of
hubam sweetclover that is still
growing without rain. It was
planted as a pure stand. Pure
stands are more satisfactory
during periods of limited rain-

A pasture rested for two
straight years during 1949 and
1950 is still paying for Alfred
Kneupper. After these two years
of complete rest, Kneupper
stocked and has continuously
run approximately seventeen
cows and ninety mutton goats
on this 33 acre pasture since
1951. This represents 9.5 acres
per animal unit. He has never
had to. feed during the winter
since 1951. He said, “I estimate
we did not feed over 300
pounnds of cottonseed cake and
four bales of hay on that pas-
ture all winter. My goats clipped
more than goats in other pas-
tures. I had 100% calf crop this
year and calves from this pas-
ture have continuously finished
out faster and better than the
rest of the ranch.” He still has a
fair reserve of feed on the

A question that has been ask-
ed Soil Conservation Service
technicians many times is
“What legume can I plant in an
old field or my pasture that will
volunteer each year?” We know
from past experiences that most
of our good legumes we use on
our cropland are not too satis-
factory for this purpose. We do
have many native legumes that
grow well here and have stayed
under varied weather and stock-
ing conditions. It might be well
to try to harvest seend and en-
courage the spread of some of
these. Bluebonnets are a legume I <
that will grow well on most any
soil from deep to shallow or
from coarse to fine textured.
Seed can be combined and can
be seeded with most any equip-
ment. They grow well under
cultivation and like other le-
gumes, phosphate tends to
greatly increase the growth.
Why not try to harvest a few
seed this year. Reproduce these
seed under cultivation for your
own use and for sale to other
farmers and ranchers. Small
areas could be harvested by pull-
ing up plants when the majority
of the plants are ripe, then al-
low the other pods to mature on
the stalk. A few seed harvested
by hand will give a person a
chance to get a seed plot started.

FATAL TO CATTLE
Dr. Ray F. Smart, Boerne vet-
erinarian, said Wednesday a
preliminary investigation indi-
cated that 19 head of cattle
which died suddenly on the Alex
Cadena Ranch, south of Boerne,
last Saturday had eaten ferti-
lizer which resembled salt.
He said a final analysis of the
crystals eaten by the cattle was
expected from a San Antonio
laboratory Wednesday afternoon
or Thursday to deteermine
whether they were an odorless
fertilizer resembling salt.
Cadena had reported to the
Bexar County Sheriff’s Dept,
that he had purchased two
sacks of “salt” from a San An-
tonio store and placed a supply
in the pasture occupied by the
cattle shortly before they were
Dr. Smart said nitrate in the
fertilizer could affect oxygen
supply in the blood stream and
also could cause suffocation.
