quality forage be obtained Harvest orchard grass when the first seed heads emerge and be fore it blooms Most first cut ting forage of hay or silage can be cut the last week of May or the first week of June Lockhoff de clared Du Puits alfalfa is earlier than other recommended varieties of alfalfa To determine when it is ready to cut pull out some stems at various places in the field The stems will break at the crown when pulled If the new or second crop shoots at the base of the stem are Vt inch long the crop should be harvested If weather is suitable make hay Lockhoff continues Some farmers made grass silage during the only good hay making weather in 1956 The good hay making weather came during the early first crop harvest last year Grass silage can toe made satisfactorily when weather is not suitable for hay cur ing LATE SPRING IS BAD TIME TO SEED LAWNS Avoid seeding new lawns late in the spring advised county agent Harold L Lockhoff He says it is impossible for desirable per manent turf grass to produce more than a shallow rooted seedling plant before the hot dry weather These seedling plants cannol compete with the annual weeds which thrive in the heat of the summer Most of the seedling per manent grass plants are killed by the hot dry weather and the area must be reseeded in the late sum mer At this season of the year it would be more desirable to seed a temporary grass such as domes tic ryegrass Lockhoff declared This can be destroyed in mid August and the lawn area prepar ed for seeding permanent grass early in September Grass seeded early hi Septem ber will develop a strong plant be fore winter and by the following summer the grass plants will have deep roots and be mature enough to withstand the hot dry weather If properly fertilized at seeding tune and in late April the turJ should be dense enough to resist annual weeds Lockhoff adds AYRSHIRE BOUGHT BY COUNTY FARMER Continued From First Page of the DAR GAR Gold Star Mothers VFW Auxiliary and Cgion
