Huber had been a dairy nan for about 23 years, but turned that business over to his son Elmer W. some years ago. He has been an active committee member of the County Agricultural Stabiliza tion and Conservation Service for the past seven years. He said that when he took over the farm originally the land was in bad shape Erosion had carved large gullies in its roll ing fields Conservation-mind ed, he has since repaired na ture’s damage with terraces and contour strips to divert water run-off. Now forty sites for camp trailers are ready to go, and he plans to add sixty more soon. For two dollars a day, city-weary campers can park their trailers and relax in this natural setting, away from the din and dirt of crowded cities and busy high ways.

Based on a whole new principle in feeding, Ful-O-Pep Cattle-izer Beef Supplement changes the proportions of organic acids produced in the rumen. As a result, up to 20% more energy is available to the animal, as compared to the same amount of regular feed without the new concept. This extra energy means faster gains, less feeding time to market, and considerable lower feeding costs. For thousands of cattlemen, it means extra profits. Ful-O-Pei Harold H. Good Terre Hill S. H.

The pond, which may well be the central attraction at Huber’s, was constructed last year. It is located at the low est point in the immediate area, and is surrounded by a terrace of sufficient size to prevent any amount of water shed runoff from flooding the pond. At its deepest point the pond measures about ten feet, but along one bank Hu ber has concreted an area and roped it off for swimming and wading. Last spring, and Try the new concept soon. m • L T R*Ee»«'* Salunga again this year, he stocked the pond with 200 trout and bass fingerlings. To encourage production of natural food for the fish he fertilized the pond earlier, but feared the murkiness this created might be objectionable to swimmers. Now he feeds the fish daily with a commercially-prepared food. Getting water to fill the pond and to maintain it was no problem, in fact, the prob lem was too much water. Wa ter from five springs feeds the pond constantly. There are so many springs in the area that it was necessary to lay 800-feet of tile and pip ing to dry up the ground That this recreation site, located just a short walk from the Pequea Creek, is also frequented by some of nature’s larger creatures was evident from hoof prints in the soft sand near the pond indicating that deer had come down from the surrounding hills to dnnk.
