Do you know that farmers in
this county arc making a big
mistake that that they do not
keep sheep. First get a large
acreage of alfalfa. Be sure you
have plenty of hay , ( alfalfa ) and
grain. Buy say 100 ewes in the
early fall , join with your neigh
bors , and buy a car load and dis
tribute them out in bunches ol
one or two hundred lots. Don't
be in a hurry to get a lot ot ex
perience and be a big sheepman ,
chances are you will lose , but
commence small , bread the ewes
for early lambs. Give them
plenty of range so they can gather
up all the roughness and clean
the farm of weeds. Feed enough
alfalfa hay and grain during the
winter so they will gain in flesh
and be in fine condition at lamb
ing time. Then keep crowding
them along with a view of fat
tcning both ewes and lambs.
You should have a fine fat bunch
of sheep and lambs by early sum
mer which , together with the
wool clip will give you three
crops from your investment , one
crop of wool and two of mutton
and all within eight to ten
mouths time. There are three
things to insure your Msucccss
Buying weight , plenty of feed
and proper care. The market
you will have to take your chan
ces on. The first ( three is your
business andI ; believe you wil
and a good market. I hope to
try it another year when' I ge
more-land in alfalfa.
