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. Another article by Mr. Mortimer on perma- nent pastures wil appear in an early issue.
