Comments From - COUNTY AGENT From the looks of some of the grass I see around the county that a second application of nitrogen will be called for after the first cutting. Sorhe of the grass is rath- er light yellow green which is one of the indications of low nitrogen. Where there is a good. stand of clover in the field along with the grass this may be corrected some by warm weather and better clo ver growing. Even so there may be a need for additional niwo,en on many fields to give best re- sults. By adding 30 to 45 poands of nitrogen after first cutting or grazing the plants should' respond with growth at the time the pas- ture usually gets in short -upply May 19, 1960 Monroe Monitor, Monroe, Wash. PACE THREE ' . i , i li + Republicans Set County Conv. Sat. Republican candidates for gov- ernor, Lloyd Andrews nd Newman Clark, will speak this Saturday, May 21, at the Snohomish County Republican convention.

GET THF B[G ONE THAT SAVFS UKE THE SMALL UNFS! tion in this, however, is the fact--Grit. that adequate moisture is a must  'attl w  bui p e if nitrogen is added.

Because of the loss of many These are the larvae of a small grass and clover stands some gray or whitish lawn moth or mill- dairymen are going to be forced er. They can be identified by buy+ #he touse oats as silage this summer, breaking apart the brown dying I was talking *co Dr. Tim Blosser sod and they will be located in last week about the value of oat small light tubular webs just at silage and the proper stage of cut- ground level. They are three-fourth ting. He mentioned that usually to one inch in length. A control the oat silage is somewhat below good grass and clover in feeding value. He did, however, say that it is possible to make acceptable silage if time cutting is correcE The best time to cut oats is in the dough stage. The time'for cut- ting is rather short so an early start may be necessary in order that the silage at the end of the cutting be of high quality. Guernsey Type Conference I had the privilege of attending the Guernsey Type conference up in Skagit County last week. This conference was for Idaho, Oregon and Washington to get thinking to- gether on the type of Guernsey's they are looking for in the show ring. I mention this because I think it important to commercial dairymen as well. What they are looking for are the kind of cows that will carry the type that has been proven to give production over a period of time. For instance, they were looking for the type of udders that will be well tucked up under the cows to facilitate milk- ing with modern roachines. They want an udder that will be up off the ground for a long period of time so that the cow won't have to be culled for this reason. All the things they looked for were along the same lines so that pure- for them is to use aldrin, hepta- chlor or toxaphene applied as a dust or granules. Use any one of these chemicals at the rate of five pounds of five per cent material per 1000 square feet of lawn area. The chemical should be applied in the late afternoon or evening and the lawn sprinkled following the application. A repeat treat- ment in about a month may be neded for complete control. sonic Temple in Sn0homish.
