KrT-,rnfle1d Tnlr I "It ts tr ki i-o-
gretted that at the present time so li'- .
tie attention is being paid to the grow-'
icg of live stock," declares Phil S.
Haner. chairman of the state live stock I
commission. 'Mr. Haner is one of the
most enthusiastic live etock men in
the west and is unable to see why ev-
ery other farmer should not work him-
. . .
self into the same class.
"There is no question but what the !
high price of grain ha induced many j
to pursue that lice of farming and not
bother with the growing of stock," Mr. ,
Haner pays. i
"But the difficulty experier.eed last
winter in getting cattle to fake to the ;
farms, or to put in feed lots, brought '
the price of fat cattle higher than was ,
ever known. i
"The question of whether the farmer j
can afford to raise stock on our high :
priced land is being frequently asked.'" ,
Mr. Haner states. "I have ro heei-1
tancy in stating that rhe raising of
live stock on land worth from $175 to
$2'0 per acre is highly profitable."

According to the officials of the state

called for mrrc ca'tle to consume it.
