from the steer to the cow. He was dis
missing tho conservation of tho cow
and asserted thnt when a bank extend
ed credit to farmers on steers It was
credit that meant tho removal of tho
steers to a butcher shop.
"But when tho bankers glvo a farmer
credit with which to buy cows, he does
something that means additional ani
mals on the farm each year," Ransom
