4 The Glenvllle Democrat/ Pathfinder February 10, 1977 Hay clearinghouse formed for local farmers by ASCS In an effort to provide local farmers with needed supplies of hay and grain, the local Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service office has joined the state department of Agriculture in forming a "Hay Clearinghouse". Last week Mary Louise Retee sent 674 questionaires to farmers in the county to determine how great tle hay and grain shortage is and to find if anyone had sur)lus hay for sal. She's received replies from about a dozen farmers and none of them say they have surplus hay or grain. The Dept. of Agriculture has supplied the local office with a list of farmers in the Ohio Valley who have hay and grain for sale. Any local farmer who has hay or grain for sale will be added to this list. Farmers can look over that list in the ASCS office in the federal building in Glenville. Commissioner Gus Douglass said that the Department of Agriculture and other state agricultural agencies will assist in gathering information on hay supplies and keep the ASCS offices informed of the kind and amount available. Douglass said. "It is extremely important for all West Virginia farmers who have a surplus of hay or other livestock feeds to participate in this effort to see West Virginia's livestock industry through this most difficult and critical period." Douglass said. "As a general rule, livestock producers expect to use only half of their winter feed supply by February 1 but due to an earlier and colder than normal fall and much colder than normal winter, many producmrs have used most or all of their available feed supplies, and the end is not yet in sight." Douglass pointed out that the severe drouth experienced in several livestock producing areas of West "Virginia and neighboring states during 1976 drastically reduced hay produc- tion and limited the availability of surplus hay that could be sold to those in need.

Orders may not exceed 500 trees and as few as 25 trees of each kind of seedling may be ordered. Orders must be processed through the extension office no later than April 1. A second seedling " purchase program sponsored by Westvaco, can provide various quantifies of conifer seedlings for use in a school forest, civic project or for a member's use in general forest planting as well as landowner forest plantings. In addition, a strawberry variety trial consisting of ten commercially available types totalling 250 plants is available to an older 4-H'er in Gilmer County who is interested in participating in a strawberry research study. This study requires record keeping as to the yield of each variety and would serve as qualification to enter state competition for the National Junior Horticulture Associa- tion Research project. These programs provide excellent opportunities for individual 4-H members's projects as well as group projects undertaken by the total 4-H club. 4-H'ers do not need to be currently enrolled in a project pertaining to planting trees or the production of strawberries in order to qualify for participation in these programs. If you have an interest in either of these programs or if you are not currently a member of a 4-H club and would like to enroll, contact Roma Adkins, Gilmer County 4-H Extension Agent at 462-7061 immediately.
