Janmhluk Stearns County Eztension Director of Agriculture The fantastic farmer Much has been said about the American farmer. Today, let me give you a descripuon of the average dairy farmer in Swarns County, Minnesota. He is about 48-50 years old, he lives on a family farm, he has an average of 45 milk cows producing on the average of 14,093 pounds of milk, has farm expenses of $150 a day, seven days a week, and generates four off-farm private enterprise jobs. Remember, this is the average dairy farmer that feeds 101 people--74 Americans and 27 people from other coun- tries. Stearns dairy pnncess named Over 250 people attended the annual Stearns County Dairy Princess coronation held at the Melrose American Legion Hall. Selected as Miss Congeniality was Pamela Blenker of Albany. Runner-up Princess was Catherine Fiedler, Sauk Centre; Princesses selected to represent Stearns County in he regional contest to be held on June 20-21 in St. Cloud were Faye Eckman, Kimball; Karen Sehirmers, Freeport; Naomi Waldorf, "Albany; and Julie Schneider, Melrose. Ambassadors of the dairy industry in Steams County include: Janie Zabinski, St. Cloud; Shelly Geise, Richmond; "Mary Urbashick, Albany; Stacy Uhlenkamp, Sauk Centre; Sherry Evans, Freeport; Kelly Overman, Albany; and Nancy VanDreide, Melrose. at it tt Alternative tillage and weed control Last year's tillage and weed control program may not be the best this year. Chances are only 40 to 50 percent that there will be the same weather conditions. I might suggest planng ahead with a number of weed control options ready to go, depending on conditions. Many people are considering the rotary hoe sys- tem. It may or may not work this year. If you get a high-in- tensity thunderstorm shortly af- ter rotary hoeing, you may get sandblasting on corn and soy- beans. A weed control program that leaves some clods, surface roughness, and residue, will help prevent wind and water erosion. Black "clumps" in trees A fungal disease called black knot is showing again in cherry, chokecherry, and plum. Infection occurs in the slxing as the new growth is starting to emerge. Slightly swollen areas may be visible by the end of the first growing season. After a second summer of growth, the swollen areas are readily visible as elongate, black, woody galls which give off spores in the spring which infect new growth or wounds. Black knot control includes removal of all knots and slightly swollen areas. Then a dormant lime sulphur after pruning is also beneficial. -'Kimlll Tri-County News--Thursday, April 25, 1991 15 Crabgrass control information Crabgrass is an annual that dies each fall and sprouts from new seed each spring. In an av- erage year, crabgrass begins to " sprout around Memorial Day; so crabgrass killer should be ap- plied two weeks prior. Most pre-emergents maintain peak ef- fectiveness only 6-8 weeks, then taper off. Along with using pre-'* emergent herbicide to prevent crabgrass seed from sprouting, work to improve the lawn by fertilizing twice in the fall and once in the spring. The thicker the turf, the less opportunity there is for crabgrass seeds to reach the soil and sprout. k k Jk KIWI3QII Llbr'Qr'y- mondag 10:30 - 12:;30 I :OO - 5:00 Wednesdav 10:30- 12:30 1:00-5:30 Thursdo g I:OO - 5:00 Frldag 1:00 - 5::30 6:OO- 8:00 Sllttur'dog I O:OO - 12:OO Phone: 390-3g 15 Rnpr Electric tb00r Kimball Area Emereency FOOD Sl ;IELF SI.Anne's Church Kimball IO  Io II AM.
