You Would "Fire" a Loafer
By G. B. Mortimer
Wisconsin College
of Agriculture
S O would I, but many of us keep a loafing pasture and
lose money by it every year.
  It 's easy to change the loafing pasture into one of the
most valuable fields on the farm. Think of it-pound for
pound-the grass from a good improved pasture is worth
almost as much as linseed meal, and when properly cared
for, will give your cows lots of rich, green feed for four
months or more at less cost than you ever thought
possible!
              Applications of fertilizers do much to improve our per-
           mnanent pastures. At least that has been our experience
           at the state experiment station.
              That the use of fertilizers on permanent pastures pays
           profits over costs is shown by the returns obtained from
           applying 20 per cent superphosphate, potash, and lime.
           Since 1927 an old permanent pasture on the Station Farm
           has been improved 350 percent by this means.
              By applying fertilizers on permanent pastures we have
           obtained splendid results. Just write today to the College
           of Agriculture, iMadison, for more details on this in-
           expensive way to cheap protein.
                    Another article by Mr. Mortimer on perma-
                    nent pastures will appear in an early issue.
