while the native grass In an udjoiu

he has never seen calves do quite ho
well as his have done this year. He
attributes the manner in .which the
young cattle have thrived to the fact
that they and their mothers had the
lleriniida pasture lo graze upon. He
is of the opinion that llermuda Is the
best pasture grass that can be grown
in the stale.
In the southern portion of Oklaho-

the cold of the winter never destroyes

cold w euther while the grass is often
.killed north of it. the A. and M
college has done much work lo propa
'gate a hurdler grass that .would with
stand the cold. The college believes
that It has made a success. While
jthut may be true the safest place to
raise llermuda Is wliere the soil and
the climate are adapted to lis growth
and that Is in Southern Oklahoma.
All other grasses thrive Just as well
here. Johnson grass Sudan grass
and other forage crops grow luxuri
antly. Farmers fuss at Johnson grass
Ihe state makes efforts to prevent Its
spread over the farms hut when a
dry summer comes Johnson grass and
llermuda grass must bo depended
upon largely for pasture.
If at any time a fanner desires to
rid a pasture of llermuda all that Is
required is to pasture hogs upon It.
They will burrow into the earth as
far as the tender roots extend nnd
will destroy them. In case Johnson
grass becomes undesirable it can be
gotten out of the nay by pasturing
sheep upon it.
Cuttle in this section of the stale
can remain out In pastures all winter.
The feeding season Is short. The
country Is being freed of the tick.
Cattle grow large and strong. They
can be raised cheaper here than far-
ther north where the feeding season
is long. This is an ideal stock conn.
rty and those men who have devoted
their time to this branch of agricul-
ture have become well to do.
