R. L. Fry, Yukon, likes King-
ranch bluestem for grazing. This
grass produces well on the soils
except where drainage is a prob-
lem. Fry has been harvesting seed
each year, in addition to the pas-
ture. Kingranch bluestem in the
growing stage has 11 % crude pr - /
tein. This is comparable with big
bluestem, Indian and switch grass,
the better of the native tall gras-
ses, Fry has planted 20 acres more
%to Kingsranch. This grass wi h-
stands heavier grazing than tne
other native grasses. Its habit ol
laying along the ground prevents
being grazed too close.
Technicians have been asked to
assist many farm youths during
the last week regarding soil clas-
ses and how to determine tht
capabilities, and also the treatment
to give certain land classes.
