Profits Disappear
in the Runways
                           S AVE on your fertilizer bills by getting all
the high
    By C. J. Chapman      fertilizing value out of farm manure. It is valuable,
for
    Wiaconain couege      many millions of dollars worth is produced yearly
on
    Of01 Agricul~ture     Wisconsin farms.
                              Most of us waste too much of the rich fertilizing
ma-
                           terials in manure by letting rains leach them
away and
                           by letting the manure pile burn. When piled in
the usual
                           way, manure loses about half its value within
six months.
                           Every year many dollars, sometimes hundreds of
dollars,
                           are wasted in this way on the average Wisconsin
farm.
                              To get the fullest fertilizing value from manure,
it's
                           best to soak up all the liquid with plenty of
straw and to
                           haul it directly from the barn out on the fields.
Lots of
                           straw conserves the liquid, which is especially
rich in
                           readily available plant food, such as, nitrogen
and potash.
                              When you spread fresh manure on the fields,
you lose
                           but little. And as you load it fresh on the spreader
direct-
                           ly from the stalls, you also save labor by not
handling it
                           twice. Lots of straw in the stall and spreading
manure
                           while fresh saves you money.
