For- most row crops ceased on subsoil moisture and our harvest was not severely hurt. So although a shortage of grass and forage is creating prob- lems in the livestock and dairy industry, the triumph of other crops over the drought consti- tutes a gratifying minor miracle. Our major cash crop, cotton, | :~!;'.~i is down slightly but will amount : to something like 4,635,000 bales or more. This is only about 89,- 000 bales below 1962, despite the weather. We will hold our reputation as the nation's largest producer of grain sorghums also. Our 1963 crop made a dramatic jump of 33 m/ilion bushels over year before with some 232,- 429,000 bushels expected in the final tally. And in spite of some productions decreases such as on- ions, Texas vegetables are ex- pected to bring farmers about $1 million more than in 1962, peaking at some $65 million. The Texas citrus production has received some "knock out blows" from freezing weathe in recent years, but the 1963-64 crop year now in progress gives evidence of a rapid recovery. Only about 111,000 boxes of oranges and grapefruit valued at :: some one-half million dollars 000. Some of the best news yet for our hard hit citrus growers. Our efficient production tech- niques will continue to assure Texas and the nation's consumers of a bountiful supply of food and fiber at reasonable prices. This is a success story without parallel in the history in any other nation. Producer profits, however, are still limited by rising costs of materials needed in farming op- erations. The problem of the cost-price squeeze exerted upon the farmer is still very much with us. Our livestock industry is still something of a question mark. If we have good winter moisture, our ranges that were parched during thee past summer can make a quick recovery. -Con- tinued subnormal rainfall would paint a darker picture. Normally, our livestock industry is worth close to one billion dollars to the Texas economy each year. Livestockmen, too, are having their problems, profit wise. The drought has caused produc- tion costs to rise due to the high cost of feeding operations. And imports of meat f r o m other countries are further depressing local prices. But despite these adverse fac- tors, our 1963 farm picture is far better than many had expected earlier this year. ster.

Farmers must keep their winter feed costs as low as possible, but it is false economy to starve the heard at this time and hope they pick up next spring. Low quality roughage avail- able in pastures as grazing or poor hay must be supplemented with good quality protein such as 41% cottonseed meal at the rate of two pounds per head daily. Protein is the main food ntttrient lacking in the d r y grasses and hay. Adequate food which includes roughage, protein source feeds, some grain to balance the low roughage; and mineral will re- duce calving problems and the effects of parasites and disease. TREAT GRUBS IN CATTLE Have you checked the oacks of your cows recently for cattle grubs? These pests are showing up at this time and will further reduce the health and value of animals. Infected cattle should be treated now with rotenone as a dust on the backs of animals. Five percent of rotenone powder can be diluted by thoroughly mixing one pound with three pounds of talc, colcanic ash, or dusting sulphur. Seven pounds of the 5 percent rotenone can be mixed with 100 gallons of water and applied to the backs of animals using a high pressure powder spray that develops 200 pounds of pressure. NEW CATTLE FEEDING PRACTICE Five years ago work was done in Mississippi on Using ground gypsum in lieu of so much salt for winter cattle feeding, with the idea of eliminating some of the problems encountered from unneeded salt. That work proved successful. Four years ago coun- ty agent Neal of Titus County, Mr. Pleasant, started his own ex- periment. Mr. Neal has been mixing Hydrated Calcium Sul- phate Feed Grade at the ratio of one part of gypsum to 5 to 8 parts of cottonseed meal plus the usual addition of 2 percent minerals and vitamin A plus 2% regular salt. The ranchers in Titus County who have been us- ing this regularly start off each fall at the rate of about 5 to 1 and go up to about 8 to 1 as they beef-up the ratio during the winter months. They have found that at the ratio of 6 to 1 that the cattle average eating about two pounds per day and at the ratio of 8 to 1 they eat 3% pounds per day. Mr. Neal reports uniform satisfaction by the people using the hydrated calcium sulphate Feed Grade. The previous problems encoun- tered with too much salt have been eliminated. Cattle do not have to drink so much water with the loss of energy walking to get the water plus the needed .energy to warm the water up. There are also indications that the gypsum improves the pro- tein utilization. FKRME~.S INCOME TAX GUIDE AVAILABLE Farmers Income Tax Guides for 1964 are available at t h e County Agents Office.
