Cattlemen are facing some important decisions on what management practices to follow in order to produce an abund- ance of pasture and forage for their livestock. At a recent paure and for- age management meeting held in Payne County, several dif- ferent pasture management pro- grams were discussed which cattlemen may want to follow in order to maximize the pro- duction from their pastures. One program that many cat- tlemen are using that can in- crease carrying capacity by 30 per cent is to plant enough bar- muda grass to approach 10 per cent of their native grass aver- age. To fertilize the bermuda annually using vetch in the fall or using additional nitrogen fer- tilizer during the growing sea- son to provide an abundance of grass, then concentrate the cattle on bermuda during May and June relieving the pasture on the native grass giving it a chance to grow and provide late summer and winter grazing. Another program is to use su- dan and, or sudan hybrids plant- ed in April and early May to provide good succulent grazing, again, giving thenative grass a eanee to get adequate growth and develop deeper root sys- tems ,for food storage. The farmers or cattlemen who h,ve primarily-bermuda pas- lures have one or more choices two inches deep into the soil to increase carrying capacity of his pasture. To use high fertilizer rates on a part of your acreage will stim- ulate an abundant groh for heavy spring and early summer grazing. Use moderate fertiliza- tion on tlae balance to furnish late smmner and winter grazing. Another system Is to overseed with vetch and small grains in late October. This will provide good late winter and early spring grazing using a rotation pasture system so that. the sur- plus can grow to produce a hay crop and then be grazed later, and to have an area which was grazed early in summer that you can topdress with additional nitrogen in late July or early August to produce a good growth or wintering. For further information we have available fact sheets on bermuda systems of manage- ment. WOOD CONTROL IMPORTANT IN ESTABLISH- ING FORAGES Weed competition is a major problem you')l face as yo u s'tab- lish alfalfa and bernvUdagrass this spring. Ayailable herbicides will give thicop a chance to- grow and esblish a good root system, Eptam controls almost all the before you plant the alfalfa. You may use Balan to estab- lish an alfalfa seed crop. This new herbicide has shown excel- lent results in research trials. Two herbicides approved for use in bermudagrass are Sim- azine and 2,4-D. Both have been approvect by the Agricultural Stabilization Conservation Ser- vice for cost-sharing practices in Oklahoma in 1967.

It will control ggrminat- ing weeds as they eerge in the stand during the season. Keep Simazine In suspension during application. And properly calibrate the equipment for pro- per and even application. The other herbicide for ber- mudagrass is 2,4-D. It is a pod-t- emergence spray you can use rom sprigging time on: It kills weeds by moving from the lea- ves through the plant. It will corot,'el most broadleaf weeds.
