Roy Robinson, Hardman, Is the
first livestockman to order his
rotonone for this year's grub
control In his herd. Mr. Robin
son treated his entire herd of
cattle for grubs last winter and
reports excellent results. Two
treatments about one month
apart were made. He stated that
although there were but a few
live grubs to kill on the second
treatment, all cattle were treat
ed to insure the least possible
hatch of the heel fly for reln
festation of grubs.
While Mr. Robinson believes
that there will be but a very few
grubs in his cattle this year, he
plans to spray with the hope in
mind of eventually ridding his
herd of grubs. He says "for the
very small cost of spraying, a
livestockman cannot afford not
to spray for grubs."
Probably most costly of all in
sect pests affecting cattle are the
grubs. Through losses in hides,
loins that have to be trimmed,
losses in weight gains and de
creased milk production, it is es
timated that the market value
loss can be conservatively set at
$3 to $5 per head. This loss can
be prevented by spraying or
dusting rotonone into the backs
of cattle when grubs first make
their appearance and before
they break through the hide,

DEVELOP ARCTIC TACTICS
ARMY GROUND FORCES WILL

"Exercise Yukon," a special
four-month program designed to
develop tactics and techniques
for Arctic warfare and to train
combat troops for operations in
snow and extreme cold, started
November 1 at Big Delta, Alaska,
100 miles southeast of Fairbanks,
according to Gen. Jacob L. Dev

They include Arctic clothing and

Four successive maneuver el

out "Exercise Yukon." Some of
these troops already are under-
practical way to save grain dur
ing the current emergency, as
serts H. A. Lindgren, OSC exten
sion animal husbandman. It
takes more grain to put a pound
of gain on a highly finished ani
mal than on an animal that is
not so fat, Lindgren points out.
And part of the grain that goes
into those final pounds of gain
is wasted because excess fat has
to be trimmed from the carcass.
For that reason, an animal grad
ing "good" often yields a higher
percentage of edible meat than
one of higher grade.
