Fleming, Zylstra Herds Honored In the large herd division of 61 The January report of the Sno- homish County Dairy Herd Im- provement Association shows that them were 72 herds on test with 4205 cows with an average of 891 pounds of milk and 36.3 pounds of butterfat. These official records are compiled in accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the Snohomish County DItIA Board, Washington State DHIA, approved and supervised by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Washington State Univer- sity. The C. R. ueaergreen herd of Snohomish hit the "magic 50" cir- cle during the month with an aver- age 'butterfat of 51.5 pounds per cow according to A1 Estep, County Extension Agent. Others in the 41 to 60 cow herd size going on the honor roll were Andrew Bredersen of Marysville 45.8; Ray McCarthy of Everett 55.0; Delmar Fleming of Monroe 42.4; Svend Larson of Stanwood 41.6; Simon Zylstra of Monroe 41.1; and Bruce Douglas of Snohomish 40.8. extra nitrogen applied will give the grass such a boost that the clover is shaded and crowded out of the stand. Thinking of this then might give us an indication that it would be best to apply our barnyard ma- nure to the stands having less clo- ver and use the commerical fertil- izer on the newer stands with more clover. The available moisture is very important especially in nitrogen fertilization because if water is a limiting factor fertilizer will not pay. In fact tests have shown that extra nitrogen without water will actually reduce yields. The costs of the soils tests are small in comparison to what can be gained. We have soil test boxes available in the office or you can pick them up from most of your fertilizer dealers. They are best made now so you can plan your fertilizer program ahead. cow and over  high was Pete Van Soest of Snohomish with 48.6; Gerrit Kosters of Snohomish 42.9; H.

WE BUY LIVESTOCK TONY HARDER, PY 4-4526 Postal officials today were asked by seven Northwest senators and twelve congressmen to delay "further implementation" of the so-called Metropolitan Plan until cost data is developed and effect upon postal employes, public and railroad service is determined. Already the "Metropolitan Plan" has resulted in cancellation of two daylight trains in Washington State and "threatens the remaining daylight train service," the Northwest delegation, led by Senator War- ren G.
