If the test is suspicious for the disease, all animals in the dairy herd are individually blood tested and infected animals are destroyed. Each MCT and BRT suspicious herd in a county must be tested for brucellosis before the county can be cer- tiffed brucellosis - free. The first block of counties qualified in I)ecember 1971 and the last county - Glacier -- was cer- tiffed free on Feb. 26. The brucellosis eradication program in Montana is directed by I)r. J. W. Safford, state veterinarian, and by Dr. W. E. lvey, federal veterinarian for APHIS. APHIS officials noted that nearly 61 per cent of the 3,153 counties in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have now attained certified brucellosis - free status. Other states besides Montana which are certified brucellosis- free are: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the Virgin Islands. I Rust Re du c e s Yields Foiler diseases, such as leaf rust on wheat, are important to farmers since they can reduce yiehls severely. Food manufacturing takes place in the leaf. It's here the materials for kernel fill are developed. So anything that disrupts the process lowers wheat yields. How can farmers tell the Winter Wheat Fields Green Most Montana winter wheat fiehls were greening at the end of March according to the Montana Crop and I,ivestock Reporting Service. However, soil moisture is short in the major winter wheat areas. Winter wheat condition ranges from fair to good and winterkill has been light. Stooling varied considerably Irom one county to the next, but was generally fair overall. A winter wheat production forecast will be released May 10. Mild weather (luring March permitted many Montana farmers to begin field tillage work. Prospective supplies of irrigation water are below average as a result of below normal precipitation last winter. difference between a resistant reaction to leaf rust and one that cuts yields? When a leaf rust fungus attacks a susceptible variety, it will germinate and penetrate the leaf surface when the proper temperatures and moisture conditions exist (60 to 80 degrees F. and 6 to 8 hours of free moisture or dew). These susceptible wheat varieties will produce large, reddish - orange pustules which when scraped off the leaf will leave a reddish stain on the fingers. Pustules develop 7 to 10 (lays after the Hattie Madson Services Held Funeral services for Hattie Clemmer Madson, 81, of Missoula and formerly of t{ichland County, were held at 3 p.m. April 6, at I,ivingston and Malletta Chapel in Missoula with the Rev.

The farmer will see a few of these pustules early, but they become more abundant as the season progresses, says Glen Statler, research plant pathologist at North Dakota State University. In wheat varieties resistant to leaf rust, a plant reaction from within kills the fungus and a small amount of the host plant tissue. The fungus develops no Iurther, but leaves a tell - tale white fleck visible to the eye, according to Staffer. Farmers have two options for controlling leaf rust, resistant varieties or fungicide treat- ment. Two fungicide ap- plications 10 (lays apart have increased Manitou wheat yields as much as 10 bushels per acre, says Statler. Of the five hard red spring wheat varieties recommended in North Dakota on the basis of high quality, Wahlron is resistant, Chris and Polk are moderately resistant, Justin and Fortuna are moderat susceptible and Manitou is susceptible.

Prewitt, Fairview, has been charged with violating bonding requirements of the Packers and Stockyards Act, the U. S. Department of A4rieulture (USDA) said today. Prcwitt is registered as a livestock dealer. He purchases livestock in eastern Montana anti western North Dakota. USI)A's Packers and Stockyards Administration charged in an adnzinistrative complaint that Prewitt has continued to operate as a dealer and as a market agency buying on commission although his bond has been terminated and he has been officially notified to obtain another bond. Filing of the complaint does not-prove that Prewitt has violated the P & S Act. He has a right to a hearing to determine if the evidence supports the charge. If the charge is proven, he could be placed under a cease and desist order. His registration could also be temporarily suspended. IAvestock dealers and market agencies are required, under P & S regulations, to maintain a suitable bond as a measure of financial protection for the sellers of livestock. The P & S Act is a fair trade practices law. It promotes and maintains fair and open competition in the marketing of livestock, poultry and meat. The record in this case is open to the public. Copies of the NFO Blocks Wheat Sales" At an NFO Grain meeting held in Sidney April 6, mem- bers signed up over 250,000 bushels of wheat on contract sale forms. This block is just a start on a super block that NFO will negotiate for sale. Six counties in northeastern Montana began blocking their wheat this week, and the area is growing rapidly. Any grain producer may block his grain with NFO by contacting any County Grain Board member, sign a mem- bership agreement, and pay his : dues at the time of the sale. We are aware that the Vancouver Export price for 14 protein wheat is $3.05 per bushel. We feel our wheat is of equal quality and should bring the .same price. complaint, P & S Docket 4769, and Stockyards Ad- may be obtained from the ministration, USDA, Information Officer, Packers Washington, D.
