1945 crop season will be remembered as an short one but also one of abundant feed Cron production for the Nation as a whole is expected to be one of the largest on record according to Walter H Ebling statistician for the Crop Reporting Service of the Wisconsin and United States Departments of Agriculture Unusual weather during crop season benefitted pastures tame hay and small grains The short growing season However was not favorable to the corn crop which did not ly mature on many farms to production is large on a small acreage and the bacco crop is the best in a ber of years Canning crops have twen above average but the fruit crops have been unusually mall FAIR CORN CROP In spite of many setbacks the ly well With so much of the acreage used for silage it has been possible to save much of the corn which was immature The State has a record corn acreage this year and the crop now mated at 105 million bushels Is about a fourth above average although nine per cent below the 1944 production Pastures have furnished lent supplies of feed since early spring Tame hay production of over seven million tons this year is 15 per cent larger than last year's crop and nearly 30 per cent above the average Yields of tame hay have ed nearly two tons per acre Yields of oats barley and spring wheat were the highest in the State's history Oat yields for the State averaged 51.5 bushels per acre which is nearly IB bushels per acre above average The 154 million of oats produced in the State this year is a record For the Nation the outlook for feed crops is generally good All sections of the country except a lew ana ern have targe Joed supplies Late full pastures are well above average The corn crop is now a little larger than expected earlier yields of grain have been high and there has been a better than average tame hay crop STRIKES EVEN AFFECT SPY You have probably noticed by this time that the print section of the Spy which we receive from Milwaukee each week has been minus its regular features in this and last week's issue This is due to a strike of the Typographical Union of Chicago and until the mess is settled there we ask you to please bear with us Preparation for Winter Is Important Fall Task October always a busy month on the average Wisconsin dairy farm with silo filling clover hulling potato harvesting and apple picking the order of the day also calls

busy winter season ahead The wide-awake dairyman there fore sandwiches in between his regular fall work the repair jobs necessary to make his herd com- during the winter These jobs include window washing repairs and cleaning ing and scrubbing walls ceilings floors and stanchions The white wash job if it has not already j been applied is put on and the barn is put in shape to do its part in producing high quality milk during the winter months ahead But the wide-awake man does not stop said He checks the well and pumping equipment to nuke sure i that a plentiful supply of pure water will

is traveled daily by the milK hauler ing low spots and filling them with crushed rock or gravel Getting the farm dairy ready for winter production is an im- portant job and an important part of
