After this information is gathered a
meeting will be called at some cen

on the amount of wool that will be
produced in the state this vear, it is

At tliit time, when every stockman
r-nd farmer it debating the que
lion, "What i the most practical cat
tle for me to raise, it eem a very
tasv iiuestiou to answer if the answer
is, "Ihe cattle that will make me the
most profit for the amount of money
,n n time invested in them," so when
bringing the question down to a
point, it reads, "What is the most
profitable cattle for me to raise now."
I will give a few reasons why the
tnoi:ern polled Hereford is. the most
practical and profitable cattle for the
farmer and stockman to raise. The
meaning of "practical." when applied
to rattle, i a type that more near
ly meets all expectations that the
grower has for them and can he the
most economically grown ami de
veloped by any farmer or stockman
en any feeds that can be raised on
his farm, and when finished, will sell
for a figure that will pay all expense
of the feed and care and a reasonable
profit for the risk and investment.
Beef Ultimate End.
We are all aware that the ultimate
end in the beef producing industry is
to meet the demands made upon it
bv the public bv way of the meat
block. Therefore, the efforts of the
breeder, the grower, the feeder and
the packer must he gauged by how
well and how economically he can
meet this demand. If two men can
supply a given trade with any com
modity equal in variety, quality and
nuantity, but one of them can pro
duce it more economically than the
other, it must be admitted that the
man who is getting the best returns
for his products is getting the most
practical results. So it is with cat
tle, when one man is producing a
type of cattle that meets the popular
rpproval of the critical buyers and
another man is producing a type that
nobody wants, but buys because they
rre offered for less mony, both types
taking the same amount of feed, care
etc., it stan 1s to reason that the type
meeting the popular approval of the
buyers, is the most practical type to
The first consideration, but not
the foremost, in producing a choice
cut to meet competition on the
butcher's block is the dam of the
steer that is to furnish the carcass
for this cut. Most any cow will de
liver a calf and raise 'it, if given or-
inart. rari anrt fH Kiif tn tuppf tUt
flecn competition that the cattle
feeder comes in contact with at all
market points, this cow should be
able to deliver a calf that inherits
the ability to convert its feed con
sumed into development that will
produce the most dollars' worth of
meat and be ready tor the block in
the shortest nossible time. .
In order for this cow to deliver a
calf with these essentials, she must
necessarily have been bred for
these characteristics herself for sev
eral generations. The scronger she
is bred for them, the more nearly
the height of perfection is attained
by her calves.
Can Raise Calves. .
After she has i delivered this calf
with the inherited ability as a meat
producer, she must be able to tur
nish it with milk enough to give it
a good start in growth. But to de
velop a physical constitution to
stond out-door, general all-around
knocks that he will be subject to be

he must inherit a character that will
cause him to learn at an early age,
to start rustling for himself, thus
not to depend on. milk alone, but to
harden his development with other
teens that are placed before him
in order that by the time he is 6
to 8 months old, he is well grown,
hardened in development somewhat.
and has established the ability to
handle all kinds of feed and to keep
on growing oir them. If this cow
is the "practical'' cow and has been
given practical feed and plenty of it,
she will be front 4 to 6 months in
calf again by this time, and by the
time her previous calf is a year old."
weighing from 700 to 1,000 pounds,
she will have delivered another one.
The foremost consideration for
the production of practical cattle is
the sire of the steer that is to make
the competitive test for the block.
If he is one of the practical beef-
producing type and has the ability
to transmit it to his progeny, he
will come nearer fulfilling the re
quirements, when crossed on a fair
to common cow, than will the good
cow when crossed on the fair to
poor bull. The steers from a good
sire will come nearer meeting all
the necessary essentials that go to
make up a practical type.
Produce Choice Cuts.
This sire of "practical" cattle must
be able to produce a type that is
strong in vitality at - birth, not
necessarily large. They should be
rugged, well-boned,' good depth of
body and uniform in color and
markings. He must also be able to
instill in his calves the ability to
produce meat for the feed consumed
and this meat must be the cuts that
demand the better prices, such as
sirloin, porterhouse and round, and
not all shoulder, neck and ribs.
All these essential points that are
necessary to the makeup of the prac
tical cattle are incorporated in the
modern polled Hereford. The breed
is a direct decendent of the original
LHercfords. Its origin being a few
