Many farmers are asking ques
tions about weed control these
days and a spirited drive is be
ing made by chemical and equip
ment manufacturers to sell 2,4-D
and equipment with which to ap
A word ol caution is given by
this office to farmers who plan
to buy this winter and spring.
First, investigate the company
who is selling such materials.
There are many good reliable
dealers in chemicals and equip
ment. Yet there are always a few
that are trying to make money
fast rather than sell materials
and" equipment that are thor
oughly tested and proven. Com
panies with only a year or two
experience in the manufacturing
field are generally not in the po
sition to provide quality mater
ials like an older firm.
Second, when purchasing
equipment, make sure it will
meet qualifications for thorough
application. In purchasing a
sprayer be sure that it is capable
of spraying at least 10 gallons
of liquid per acre. Lower applied
tions are not recommended by ex
periment stations, Oregon State
college or reliable chemical or
equipment companies who have
experimented with application.
A final word of caution, which
applies to not only chemical and
equipment sales is to watch out
for high pressured salesmen who
have a product to sell.
E. R. Jackmanlong-time farm
crops specialist at Oregon State
college, claims the good life isn t
found in the large cities of the
country. He says to look 10 the
small towns for color and inter
est. In fact, Jackman attempts to
prove his point in an article
which will be printed in the Jan
uary 31 issue of the Saturday
Burns, Oregon, is the town he
uses as a case in point.
In telling about the life in
Burns, Jackman takes the part of
the eastern Oregon stockman de
scribing his way of life and char
acter. Many incidents using
names of actual persons gives the
article a true eastern Oregon fla
vor. Many of Jackman's arguments
in favor of the small town way
of life are illustrated with hu
morous anecdotes which makes
the story about Burns as refresh
ing as an eastern Oregon breeze.
The U. S. depatrment of agri
culture has estimated that cattle
grubs cause a loss of from 50 to
100 million dollars annually. This
is the loss represented in wasted
meat trimmed from grubby car
casses and the loss in damaged
hides. Buyers the country over
make a reduction on purchases
of grubby animals because they
know there will be a loss in meat
and hides. Not all ranchers are
aware they are being thus pen
alized when selling their grubby
animals. We have first-hand in
formation showing that grubby
cattle normally suffer a price
concession of about 50c per cwt.
This price concession of 50c per
cwt. applies during periods of
normal receipts, but during per
iods of heavy receipts buyers are
naturally more selective and
would be inclined to pass infest
ed animals in preference to grub
free animals. There have been
many instances when grubby cat
tie do not receive a bid until late
in the day and often penalized

tered In beef coolers where grub
by carcasses are normally penal
ized around $1 per cwt. and the
loss in damaged hides which are
substantially reduced in value
because of their damaged condi
tion. The above cited loss does
not take into consideration the
less tangible consideration of re
duced weight gains due to the
presence of grubs or the running
of cattle by the adult heel fly.
Buyers of feeder cattle are report
ed to be giving more and more
consideration to the origin of the
cattle they purchase and whether
they came from areas known to
be heavily infested with grubs or
if the cattle came from areas
treating for grub control.
Rotonone is the only Insecticide
now being recommended for the
control of cattle grubs. Recent
checks on Morrow county cattle
show that in the lower part of the
county it is now time to treat for
grubs. The cattle in the higher
country will be ready to treat
shortly after February 1st as it
now appears. A repeat treatment
should be made 30 days later.
In treating ro grubs there are
two methods commonly used in
Morrow county. Dusting: use
about 3 ounces of 5 rotonone
per animal, dusting well into the
hair over the grubs. Spraying
use seven and one-half pounds of
t rotonone powder in 100 gal
Ions of water. Spray with 400
pounds pressure with nozzle 10 to
12 inches above the back of the
Commercial liquid rotonone

Arrangements were made this
past week whereby a carload of
nitrogen fertilizer was shipped
into lone for distribution to far
mers. The fertilizer will be used
by farmers for application on dry
land wheat as well as irrigated
pastures and legume seedings.
A few tons of this nitrogen fer
tilized is available of anyone is
interested in using some.
