Copper in Mineral Mix
Causes Sheep Deaths
Mineral mixtures containing cop
per are highly dangerous when fed
to sheep, according to results noted
in Oregon this year by Dr. J. MT.
Shaw, head of the veterinary med
icine department at Oregon State
college. A purebred Lincoln rarr.
It was learned that the ram had
been fed a mineral mixture com
posed of copper sulphate, sulphur,
bonemeal, and salt. Sometimes
sheepmen feed minerals containing
copper in hopes of destroying par
sites in the digestive tract, says Dr.
Shaw. Studies made in Texas hae
proved that such feeding frequent
ly results in severe losses, he said.
Work is dull only to those who
take no pride in it
Oregon Rye Grass and
Clover Seed Make Hit
Greatly increased outlet for Ore
gon grown domestic rye grass and
crimson clover seed is developing
in Kentucky, Virginia, and North
Carolina, believes W. L. Teutsch, as
sistant director of extension at Ore
gon State college, who visited the re
gion recently with N. C. Donaldson,
state AAA executive officer, follow
ing the annual national AAA con
ference in Washington.
Extension trial distribution of rye
grass and crimson clover seed was
made in that area last year by the
AAA in an attempt to encourage
the use of winter cover crops to halt
the serious effect of erosion. Teutsch
and Donaldson found that the seed
ings made early last fall had pro
duced heavy cover crops which not
only afforded winter protection to
the soil but provided good spring
pasture, which is much needed in
that region. They learned that 26
per cent of the farms in Virginia
have no cows even to supply fam
