I . Release W BJ ing A 14 V Now the Cows Go to Grass Another Month I KNOW of no cheaper and easier way to lower feed By G. B. Mortimer costs than by building an improved permanent pasture Wieco~nu College that gives us another month of grazing. Pound for pound, of Agrscture an improved pasture is worth almost as much as linseed meal, supplies costly protein at a much lower cost than grain, and gives the cows plenty of rich, green feed. Fertilizers, lime, and reseeding change many worn- out permanent pastures, into rich, profitable meadows of grass and clover. But the management of our improved permanent pastures is also of great importance. Let's give them a square deal from start to finish and use the fol- lowing plan of management. 1. Keep your stock out of the pasture until at least May 20. Give the pasture a chance. 2. Out weeds before they go to seed. They take both moisture and plant food from the pasture. 3. Drag your pasture early in the spring to scat- ter the season's droppings. 4. Keep your stock off the pasture during the open winter and early spring when the ground is spongy and plants are easily pulled out. Here at the experiment station, this system of manag- ing pastures has given us very good returns. It will help you to cheaper feed. "For Farm Prosperity" [Name of Your Bank]I r I I r I0 r *0 I S
