Weeds recent moisture in Fannin county has brought on m o r e weeds in most pastures now they should be controlled in order to use the moisture to grow grass. A heavy Weed growth will pro vent Good grasses from growing and they should not be Lefi to make a seed crop. Spraying now with 2, 4-d will kill most weeds that have Ger Pinnate a and those that i germinate within the next few weeks. Care must be exercised in using this chemical since Many crops now growing arc susceptible to it and can be damaged. In areas where chemical control is questionable due to growing crops mowing can be successfully used. This will prevent the weeds from making a seed crop in Mot instances and from shading out the grass and using the moisture now available. Research has shown that weeds can reduce the growth of Good grass by As much As 50 per cent during the summer. Such a loss could mean Short grazing for the Stockman in the weeks ahead. One of the Best Weed control measures is to fertilize on Tho basis of a Sod to to then control the weeds which Are not choked out by the better grass Iod. Bulls out gain steers in the a hurry up beef program bulls out performed Steets in both weaning weights and feedlot gains. This is the first year to compare bulls to steers in the program according to Walter Kruse of Texas a amp a University a livestock and forage research Center. Kruse started the hurry up program several years ago a its goal is to raise 1,000 Pound beef animals in a year. This year 10 bulls and 10 steers were tested. They were two Breed crosses and three Breed crosses. Weaning weight at eight months averaged 62f> for the steers and 633 for the bulls. After 121 Days in the feedlot the bulls weighed an average of 1.015 pounds. They had a feedlot of-.3il4 pounds a d4y. The steers weighed 934 pounds at the end of the feeding period. Their average feedlot gain was 2.56 pounds per Day. Kruse says there will prob i Bly be More and More bulls put in feedlots. He pointed out the steers and bulls were close together in weaning weights but the bulls really stood out in the feedlot performance. Other research has shown that rate of gain is closely related to feed efficiency. Although feed efficiency records weren t kept Kruse figures the jills made the gain on less feed per Pound of gain. Kruse says the bulls brought 60 cents less per Hundred weight at the Market but the extra weight and better efficiency More than made up for the slightly lower Price. Tests at Texas a amp a by or. G.
