Corn yield test results announced re sums of the 1971 Iowa Corn yield test have been released by Iowa state University reports James Hosch county Extension director. This Marks the 52nd consecutive year for the Corn yield test. The average yield of two Plant population Levels in the seven test districts was 131.5 bushels per acre. This was equal to the 1969 averages according to William Falck Isu agronomist. The average difference Between the lowest and highest yielding varieties in a District was 59 bushels per acre. Although the Range Between the lowest and highest yields averaged 59 bushels per acre 33 percent of the entries yielded at the top level. Falck added that about 20 varieties per District have data in the tables covering the past three years. Temperature and rainfall were generally favourable during the growing season. Dry weather across the state in August and september reduced yields. Fortunately temperatures for this same period were also below Normal Falck said which helped to prevent any Large yield reduction. The state average stands for moderate planting in the Corn yield test was 17,617 plants per acre. The final stand average for High planting rates was 21,-414 plants per acre. The planting site at mount Union in Southeast Iowa had the highest average yield of All districts with 165.5 bushels per acre. All locations were machine planted and harvested. The tests were repeated so that each variety was harvested 16 to 18 times in each District. Twenty six companies entered 197 Corn varieties in the test. Forty two of these varieties were widely grown by Iowa Farmers in 1971. Fewer varieties were grown in 1971 because of the limited availability of seeds wit nor Mal cytoplasm to combat Southern Corn Leaf blight according to Falck. Separate test reports for each of the seven districts were prepared. Copies of the reports Are available at the county Extension office in Elkader. Or copies can be obtained from the publications distribution Isu Ames Iowa 50010. Controversial chinese Medicine our awakened interest in China is making us confront chinese Medicine. Including an ancient and highly controversial procedure acupuncture. Acupuncture involves inserting Needles at precise spots in the human body so that sensations Are deadened. A recent article in the new York times written by or. Samuel Rosen of it. Sinai school of Medicine in new York described How the procedure was used in the surgical removal of a lung from a patient who had pulmonary tuberculosis. The patient was himself a surgeon. The acupuncturist began by inserting a Fine Needle about an Inch into the Arm of the patient Midway Between the wrist and Elbow. After slowly twirling the Needle for Twenty minutes she gave the signal that the operation could begin without pain. The surgeon immediately took the Scalpel made a deep incision near the spine across the left slate of the Chest Wall to the breast Bone. Then he carefully Cut away each rib. During the operation the acupuncturist twirled the Needle. An Anaesthesiologist stood by just in Case. But the patient Felt no pain and talked to the operating surgeon throughout the operation. I have no explanation for this phenomenon says or. Rosen but science has no explanation Tor Many observations that still elude investigation. Neither have chinese medical men As they frankly acupuncture is being scrutinized by american medical men but with profound reservations thus far. Medicine in the two cultures is As different As East from West. Surgery to remove a tuberculosis lung for instance is still performed in this country but rarely and Only in extreme situations. Drugs Are used instead to prevent the Progress of the disease and to Salvage the lung.

Don t sweat it. You Don t have to go whole hog Pardon the Pun by investing in All the latest building and equipment facilities to get a Start. You May already have some of the fall Jud need though some remodelling May need to be done. Many farm buildings can be remade into Low Cost Swine farrowing units. According to Larry Van Fossen Iowa state University Extension agricultural Engineer prime candidates Are old Chicken houses or barns. Both types of buildings often provide enough space for adequate size Alley ways and pens or stalls. Van Fossen says in remodelling buildings for farrowing purposes there Are three things which have no substitutes insulation ventilation and heating. While there Are Good substitutes for manure handling and several other aspects of Swine production insulation ventilation and heat tag Are fibreglass blankets placed Between the Wall supports Are usually the most common Type of insulation but it really does not make much difference what kind is used. Along with the insulation there is a need for a vapor Barrier which can be plastic sheets. Costs of the insulation and vapor Barrier will be about 6 cents per Square toot. Another item needed for Good insulation is Interior lining which will Cost about twice that of the insulation says the agricultural Engineer. Tie ventilation system need not be elaborate but it does need to be big enough for the Job according to Van Fossen. What the Farmer needs is the right size fan and air intake system that will assure the proper distribution of exchanged the Cost of a ventilation system for a farrowing House should be Between $100 and $200, this includes the fan controls to operate it and the Slot intakes from the attic area or outside. Heating the building can be varied explains Van Fossen. A common Way to heat is with hanging vented Heaters. An important feature they have is a Chimney which prevents smoke and noxious fumes from entering the building. Another Type of building heat could be infrared Heaters. These will do a Good Job but the operating costs May be higher says Van Fossen. There Are a couple of things to keep in mind in heating a farrowing facility. First maintain a comfortable temperature of about 60 degrees f Tor the sow. Second the new born pigs Are most com portable around 90 degrees f. This temperature need drops to near 70 degrees f at weaning time. Van Fossen offers several ways to keep baby pigs warm Radiant Heaters floor heat or even adequate bedding such As Straw to insulate the floor. Farrowing pens at the minimum should be at least 4 1/2 feet wide and 10 to 16 feet Long. Tills would be approximately 35 Square feet Tor each sow plus the needed Alley space. A farrowing stall is usually 5 by 7 feet. Therefore the floor required is approximately twice As much for a pen As a stall system. It is normally accepted that stalls do provide maximum Protection for the new born pigs. The item to look for in purchasing farrowing stalls or pens that the Farmer builds himself is convenience says Van Fossen. The needs of stall Sade vary slightly Between sows and gilts. Both need from 22 to 24 inches of stall Width and 18 inches of pig space on each Side of the stall adding to the 5 feet of stall Width needed. Van Fossen favors a Concrete floor because it is easier to keep clean than Plank flooring. He acknowledges that Wood Plank flooring would be More comfortable for the sow but being Able to keep the stall More sanitary would influence his Choice toward Concrete. Van Fossen says partially or totally slotted floors should save cleaning labor but will increase the initial Cost of the facilities. It costs Money to go into liquid manure heroin Trout and if you Are trying to keep costs Down they might not be a Wise if the Farmer is building new facilities he should at least consider putting a slope on the new Concrete floor. If bedding is to be used the slope of the floor should not exceed one fourth Inch per foot. If the Farmer is not planning to use bedding then the minimum slope should be one half Inch per toot. Sloped floors make the facility easier to clean and to keep clean. Van Fossen stresses that there is not an abundance of waste to clean in a farrowing facility. The amount of waste depends upon whether or not bedding is used. If All the liquids Are allowed to Drain off there is a relatively Small amount to clean. Also if the Farmer turns his sows out once or twice a Day for feed and water the problem is almost eliminated because the sows will usually dung outside the building. Because of this lowered problem of waste disposal the location of the building is not a major concern says Van Fossen. Unlike a finishing unit farrowing facilities can be near a Home with a minimum odor problem. Tills is one reason Why there is Success in remodelling older buildings.
