County Agent Kollogg has written
tho following appeal to tho farmer;
of Lincoln County. It Is worth road-1
lng nn,. careful thought.
Exporlonco has repeatedly shown
purebred cattle outweigh gratles
under the same conditions in food lot
and to bring moro por poun,i nt the
market. Present farming conditions
demnn(l that more economic produc
tion Is the only salrntlon for the farm,
er. And, It may bo that the differ
ence between tho two animals will
measure your profit.
A good purebred air Is constantly
adding valuo to your hord of grayles,
and at tho present tlmo such sires
are selling at reasonable prices. This
Ib cortalnly an opportunity for you
to better your conditions and we earn
estly hope thot you will not noglect
It Romombor that the slro Is half
tho herd every year.
The difference In tho market value
of ten calves from groJo nnd good
purebred sires should pay thnt dif
ference In tho cost at the two IjuIIb
tho flrflt year. Some brooders have
talked, of soiling on that hauls, others
have offered to trade and allow the
market valuo of tho scrub bull so aa
to put him in the slaughter house
whoro ho bolongs. .
Tho offspring from gooVl slreB will
glvo you moro poundfl with less feci
nn)di moro money per pound, because
of better quality and loss waste In
drosstng, Tho moro tlmos tho scrubs
nro crossed with good purobrcjl sires
tho nearer they come to tho market
valuo of tho purobrcd. It is nothing
but business sense to sell two or three
scrubs and get a goo,! slro for your
hord. In loaning monoy you put 11
whoro you can got tho grcatost inter
est with good security. Why Mon't
you uso tho Bamo practice in live
Better sires Is one of tho biggest
and most Important moves for the
farmer today. "Wo at present have
only thirty-four applications for
purobred sires gnto signs In Lincoln
County while wo havo about thirty
flvo hundred farmers. It Is up to
you to got In stop with this common-
sense movement. Start right and keen
going. Don't start heavy but for your
own sako nnjl for posterity start safe
with ns good sires as you can afford
to buy. A poor ono can only loso
you monoy. ,
