Annual hay show coming up
Hay producers, don’t forget to set aside hay samples to exhibit at the County Fair in September 1985.
Hay shows provide an opportunity to compare different samples of hay and help producers evaluate what it takes to make high-quality hay.
Hay is a major portion of the roughage diet of many ruminant animals and horses, so an evaluation of food value and protein content can help growers determine hay quality more easily so that livestock can be fed according to hay value.
An individual entering a hay sample will know the value of his hay when the show is over.
Samples will have a protein analysis run and physically-evaluated as to leafiness, sternness, color, foreign material and maturity.
Livestock producers preparing to feed hay will know if their hay is adequate to meet animal needs or if supplements are needed.
Hay shows can take a lot of guessing work out of livestock feeding.
Besides, providing hay analysis, hay shows can be educational. Discussion topics often deal with such areas as hay production, haying equipment, soil fertility, hay storage, hay quality differences, feeding value, forage testing and forage for hay production. It can be a place where interested individuals can learn a lot about a nationwide activity.
When saving hay samples for shows, be sure to identify them as to field, soil, fertility and cutting date so entire haying programs can be more accurately evaluated.
Hay samples should consist of a 4-inch section from a conventional bail of hay or an equal amount of hay taken from one of the large round bails.
The sample must be tied with twine.
Along with hot temperatures, the summer season in Texas may bring special lawn problems — drought, weeds, insects and disease.
Dry spots, thin turf and weeds can result from improper watering, fertilizing and mowing practices. Follow recommended cultural practices before applying a chemical
to correct lawn problems.
Drought stress most often occurs in mid-summer and shows up as wilted, discolored turf. Adjust watering schedules to wet the soil to a depth of four to six inches, and water only when grass shows symptoms of moisture stress.
Also, raise mowing heights one-half inch to improve drought tolerance in mid-summer.
I .ack of nitrogen or iron often creates a lawn problem. Grass with a nitrogen deficiency may have a pale color and be heavily infested with weeds.
A light application of a nitrogen fertilizer will improve the lawn’s appearance.
Grass leaves that have yellow
stripes parallel to the leaf margins may be deficient in iron. A foliar application of iron sulfate at six ounces per 1,000 square feet will usually solve this problem.
If a St. Augustine lawn has symptoms similar to nitrogen or iron deficiency but does not respond to applications of either material, suspect S. Augustine Decline (S.A.D. >. Close examination of S.A.D. infected turf will show green and yellow blotches on the leaves. Continue good maintenance practices where this problems exists. Also, Floratam or Raleigh, new St. Augustine grass varities resitant to S.A.D., may be sprigged into the affected area.

^football 1985 & Classic Reason
Football fans and coaches called the HeraldZeitung's Football 1984 the best football tabloicLthey’d ever seen or read. So did judges of the Associated Press Managing Editors contest, who rated it as the second-best special section — of any kind — for small Texas newspapers.
And Football 1985 will be even better, with more features and more in-depth reporting on the local teams. And on top of it all will be a full-color cover by Bob Baker.
It’s something that fans and players can keep all season, because each week’s opponent is broken down and put into a capsule for easy reference.
It’s something they’ll want to keep for a long time to remember those warm nights of September and the playoff excitement of November and December.
