New farming method is e ; peeled to rut field work
Gets First Try
On Waldo Farm
Jet age has caught up with
farming at the Waldo place eight
miles west of Chambers. Mini
mum tillage is the new thing
under the sun in the production
What is "Minimum tillage**?
It’s just a fancy way of saj
raise as much as you can by
working the soil as little as you
Sounds good doesn’t it?
It sounded good to the Waldo
father and son eombinati .1 who
ranch in southern r »rt of the
country. Both the B. W. and Lloyd
Waldo families live on the home
place. Primarily, cattle and hay
are the major production but a
tract of 65 acres is kept under
cultivation to feed the hogs that
they raise as a side line. Last
year it was farmed in the usual
way. It produced approximately
60 bushels to the acre. That's not
a bad yield in any man's land
and is something to brag about
in the light sandy soil that is pre
valent here. So why chanbc?
‘‘We decided to try the new
method for two reasons,” said
IJoyd (Junior member of the
combo.) “First, the light soil
blows badly ami second, rain
and raid this spring made the
planting season late."
This is how they do it. First the
old stalks arp cut then without
any plowing the field is disked.
Th ? corn a hybrid specially
adapted to the locality is planted
directly behind the disk. Mixed
starting fertilizer is applied. The
weeds don’t have a chance, pre
emergence weed spray polishes
them off before they get started.
“Ordinarily,” LJoyd says, "one
cultivation is enough for this kind
of procedure but because the cold
wet weather hung on so long, ours
will gat a second cultivating.”
Just before the last session a
liquid fertilizer high in nitrogen
content will l>e applied. Then
nothing remains to be done but
forget about the corn until autumn
rolls around and it’s time to get
the picker out.
It will be interesting to see how
this new venture pays off.

From Mrs. Eby ...
Blue are her skies and bright
fair are her fields today.
Hearts here with joy are light, I
happy our children play.
Fathers and mothers smile after
their tasks are done,
Here gleams, for mile and mile,
grain in the golden sun;
Here gentle stars above look down
on peaceM scenes,
Hero is a land to love, this is
what freedom means,
Streams are pure and clean, or
chards now come to fruit
Land where no work is seen born
nf the brawn of brute,
Firesides with love aglow, homes
that with laughter ring.
These are joys we know these
are the charms we sing.
Land of men’s honest toil, land
where no shell careens
Staining with blood the soil, this
is what freedom means,
Land of man’s love for man,
home of the brave and true
Land where the humblest can !
his way his goal persue
Land where to God we pray not
for the strength to fight.
But to be shown the way ever :
to keep the right
this we ar boasting of .these are
the joys we know
This is the land we love, our
task is to keep it so.
