Produce what the consumer aublic demands, process to meet the s.tandards set by the housewife and control enough of the pro- ductAon to bargin effectively witch large scale buyers 3. Farmers must be willing to finance their cooperative to the exte,nt to render the services they demand of it. 4. Farmers ~vill have /~o equip their eooperat,ive to serve all farm ers, large or small.

Savi!le ALFALFA SEEDING Time for se'edi,ng alfalfa is here. This is a costly operation and the chances of getting a stand are not too good a't the best when you con sider the money invested. Farmers say it costs from t,h~r'ty to forty dollars per acre to estab- lish a stand of alfal.fa. When one is seeding thirty to forty acres t~his runs into real money. Weather is a limi.ting, factor !,n securing a stand and there is not anyt'hing we can do about that but talk and this does ace help any. There are, however, sev- eral factors we can con,trol. The variety and quali,ty o'f seed sown can be determined by the farmer. Varieties recommended by W. Va. are Narragansett, Williamsburg, ALlan,tic, Vernal, Kansas Common. Du Pui.ts is recommended where ,the land is in regular crop rotat- ion and you will want the stand only 'three or four years. You have control of the acidity of the SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON ra~ME~.S ADYOCATE g--B THURSDAY, AU( UST 20, 1959 soil. Alfalfa does not like acid soil. Test soil to see if lime is needed. Analysis and amount of fertilizer is ttfe farmers choice. The prep- aration of the seed bed is i,n your hands. Alfal4a seems to start ofli better if a good firm seed bed is prepared. The method of seeding Js again the farmers choice. i If we make the bes~t choice of ;these items, the effect of adverse weather conditions wil.1 be min- imized. 40th ANNUAL :VIEETING The 40~th annual meeting of W.
