They're hungry for phosphate PDF (245.5 KB)



a       Relese Week Beginning September I
They're Hungry For
Phosphate
                           A GOOD improved pasture will supply a ton of
    By G. B. Mortimer     costly protein to your herd at much less cost than
does
    Wisconsin Conege      grain. Here's a real saving in feed brought about
by
    of Agriculture        just a little attention to the old permanent pasture.
                              As cows remove lots of phosphorus from the
land,
                           most of our pastures are hungry for it. This is
easily
                           understood when we realize that during the grazing
sea-
                           son a herd of 20 average cows will rob the soil
of at least
                           800 pounds of 20%c' acid phosphate. No wonder
our per-
                           manent pastures are hungry for phosphate and no
wonder
                           grass yields increase three and four times when
it is
                           applied!
                              Here at the experiment station we get excellent
re-
                           sults by using about 400 pounds of 20 percent
super-
                           phosphate to the acre, about 150 pounds of p6tash,
if
                           needed, and enough lime to correct any acid condition
of
                           the soil.
                              Try this plan of letting a fertilized permanent
pasture
                           make substantial savings on your feed. It has
given un-
                           usually splendid results and has more than paid
for itself
                           in increased yields and lower feed costs.
                              Write in today to the College of Agriculture,
Madison,
                           for more details on this inexpensive way to cheap
protein.

                                   nent pastures wil appear in an early issue.
