WILLIAMS Montana State University, Bozeman JERRY SCHAEFER Cooperative Extension Service SPRING CRITICAL FOR RANGE Initial growth of Montana range plants, now greening up, is the most critical period for them. Gr4jss plants use ap- proximately 75 per cent of carbohydrate or food reserve stored in the roots during the first 10 per cent of plant growth. This puts a tremendous strain on the plants' reserve to form the first green leaves until they become capable of manufac- turing food energy for future growth. This means that range grasses and other plants can be easily damaged or killed by excessive early spring grazing. Removing the early growth before the plant can rebuild reserves or create food energy can seriously damage plants and greatly reduce potential forage production. Many stockmen think they must use early spring grazing both to cut wintering costs and to utilize nutritious, succulent growth. However, unless ranchers give the well-being of plants due consideration this can cause rapid deterioration of the range and drastically cut its economic return. Too early or too severe early grazing will cause range plants to produce below capacity or die, leaving the land bare and susceptible to invasion by undesirable plants. Some form of systematic grazing plan cn he used to prevent serious deterioration of range from early spring use. The same land should not be grazed at start of the growing season in successive years. Calving every year in the same unit may be handy, but could eliminate desirable range species. Units seeded to crested wheatgrass or other introduced species can he used early to relieve pressure on native range, but they can't tolerate early grazing over several years either. The best way to handle early season grazing is to keep the complete ranch operation in mind when planning a rest - rotation or deferred - rotation grazing system. This will help solve early - spring grazing problems, provide maximum returns for the entire ranch and improve the range. FINANCING DISPOSAL OF SCRAPPED CAR BODIES House Bill 112, which provides for both title transfer and annual fees on motor vehicles to finance disposal of abandoned or scrapped car bodies, is aimed at getting ride of up to two million no - longer - used vehicles. A 1967 highway survey found 129 wrecking yards covering about 400 acres, and three years later this had jumped to 401 yards and 1,400 acres. Because wrecking yards get little salvage from cars more than about six years old, a large percentage of vehicles end up on hillsides, along streams or roads or elsewhere rather than in junk yards. The new Montana law provides a $4 disposal fee paid on tranfer of title of both new and used vehicles, plus a $1 annual fee paid when licensed. Private vehicle wrecking facilities will pay a $2 fee for each junk vehicle submitted to the disposal program. Any vehicle wrecking yard that handles four or more vehicles per year will pay a $50 license fee. Up to one-hai( of such funds can be provided to counties, which must provide free disposal sites. Counties can purchase land and administer the disposal, or contract operation of a site and disposal. The Montana Department of Health and Environmental Sciences will be notified when there are enough vehicles for disposal (at least 200) at a site. The department then can contract with private en- terprise to crush and ship the car or other vehicle bodies to metal processors. The prices of scrap metal and transportation costs have made recyclinlg of car bodies un- profitable, or marginal in certain areas, since World War II. A state official said more than three million vehicle titles have been issued, since 1926, and estimated two out of every three of these still exist. Nearly 30,000 vehicles registered in 1972 have not been registerd this year, which even with in-and-out-of-state movements indicates scope of the problem. The new Montana law transferred from the Highway Department to the health department responsibility for licensing wrecking yards -- a law never really enforced. There was widespread support, from Montana Municipal League, Chambers of Commerce, business, counties and individuals, for a $1 annual fee on licensed vehicles to finance disposal and utilization of old car bodies under a bill killed by the 1971 legislature. The new law, to become effective July 1, 1973, will in- stitute the $4 fee on title transfers and require licenses for wrecking yards. The $1 annual charge on each vehicle licenses will start in 1974. The Department of Health and Environmental Sciences will be required to file an an- nual report, and if the cost of disposing of abandoned vehicles changes drastically any subsequent legislature could change the fees. Festival Set At Glendive An International Festival is scheduled to be held at Dawson County High School in Glendive May 4 and 5. The festival will feature display booths of arts, crafts and foods of more than 20 countries. A program of singers and dancers in performances native to various countries will be featured in the high school auditorium. Foreign exchange students from throughout the area are invited and expected to attend. They will be on hand to talk to the public about their countries. The festival is free to the public. Mrs. Tom Sullivan, in issuing an invitation to people of the surrounding area stated: "Glendive's International Festival is an excellent op- portunity for an entertaining family experience in un- derstanding and appreciation of other peoples." ,,i ,,,, NOTICE To the person that took the hand carved nutcracker from the apartment.
