Pulling Teats Pays a Profit to All Who Pull-
Need Not Wait til Fall
Thurmond Green won first place in judging dairy cattle at the district track meet at Durant last week. It’s not the first time Thurmond has won.
Last Friday there were 80 five-gallon cram cans in the depot held for their owners. Several larger cans were there also. The two cream testing stations in town make separate shipments.
During spring months J. N. Nation, depot agent, reports that there are more than 2000 cans shipped in baggage cars per month. This does not include express shipments.
At the First State Bank Monday cream clearances were more than a total of $96.00.
Caddo ranks with Madill as the largest shipper of cream in the state.
All of Floyd Morgan’s spring calves are sired by a registered Jersey bull. John Gordon has a registered Jersey bull heading his herd.
Jim Holman has his cows on pasture which is solidly set to burr clover. His herd of hogs are growing fast on this clover.
Frank Dokupil is reported to have enough feed put up to feed his stock a full year without buying any.
Kelly Love plans to grind enough feed to fill Bass’ barn this fall. It sells readily and is good feed for all milk cows.
We need to encourage this $100,000 business here. Feed, water, and shelter are too scarce. We can get better producers, better markets, and better handling of skimmed milk. It means better citizens, more business, and less relief. This success is the result of labor and planning, not of wishing and waiting.
