Service to MVembers and the
Public Brings Success to the
South Carolina Poultry
Clemson College, April 26.-The
continuous growth of the South Caro.
lina Poultry Breeders' association is
a typical illustration of the fact that
helpful associations succeed, while
those that do not profit their mem.
bers are doomed to failure. The
present State Poultry association was
organized in Columbia four y ago
to hold an annual State Pult'ry
show, to enable poultrymen to buy
poultry supplies and food through
the annual meeting and banquet, and
to create a greater confidence in the
poultry business and those engaged
Seventy members were enrolled
the first,your and t4e association took
over the managoment of the poultry
department of the South Carolina
State Fair and conducted the first
State Poultry sh&iv. The success of
the show, which placed the name of
the owner of every bird on its coop,
and had printed cards filled in with
the selling price of all birds for sale,
was immediate. Owners proiltAd by
the advertising they obtaiod, while
the visitors profited by knowing who
owned the chickens they admired and
whether or not they were for 3ale.
So successful has this system be
como, that last year $1,600 was paid
exhibitors for birds sold during the
show, and Judge Nixon referred to
the South Carolina State Show as the
best managed and best selling show
he had over attended.
In contrast with the seventy mem.
bors four yearf ago, fifty-fouir new
members have joined the Association
in the eleven weeks since the first of
January and the members for the
year will not be less than 250. While
the South Carolina Poultry Breeders'
association offers the members sey
eml hundred dollars in sweopstakes
and cash specials at each state poul
try show, this iiducoment is not the
primary one in securing and holding

How They Work Out in
Practice.-Helpful to Large
as Well as Small Breeders.
Clemson College, April 26.-More
and more the usefulness of the co
operative bull associations is recog
nized as time goes on and its bone
fiets to the dairy industry have a
chance to become evident. The full
results that can be obtained from
such an associatioin obviously can not
appear for several years. It is evi
dent thereforp that since the -bull as
sociations are of only recent begin
ning, the benefits so far obtained are
only the fore-shadowing of greater
things to come.
The co-operative bull association
has been carefully planned to enable
a number of small dairymen and far
mers who individually could- not af
ford good bulls, to combine their re
sources and buy a few really good
dairy sires. For example, suppose
four farmers each have $100 to invest
in a bull. They are so situated that
they can all use the same bull. The
association makes it possible for them
to pool their -resources and buy one
$400 bull, presumably four times as
good as any one of the four $100 ani
mals that they could buy individually.
It is gratifying to see that this theory
is working out in practice so well that
it applies not only to the dairymen
with $100 available for investment in
a bull but equally well to the one
with only .$10, or on the other hand
to the one with $500.
Saves the Good Bells.
The money advantage is the first
thing which attracts th* farmer's at
tention to the bull association, but by
far the greatest advantage of the or
ganization is the exchange of- bulls
every tvo years by mielns of which
continued use of bulls can be had un
til their value is proved. Statistical
figures indieate that bulls owned by
individuals are used only to an aver
age age of about three kears. . At this
age it Is inpossible to have any !ro
duction recoT-ds of the offspring,
which is the only real test of a sire's
value. Because of this short life of
the bull it happens over and over
again that dairy farmers have dis
novered, after the daughters had fin
inhed a record, the exceptional pre
potent qualities of their sire; and
then, on looking around for 'that sire.
have made anotier discovery, a 4nad
one. that the svarix was futile, for
the sire had gone to the butcher.
Beneficial to Family Cow Owners.
The average herd of :ill the mom
born of these associations consists of
six cows. Inasinuch as there are
many herds with ten or a dozen cowq,
it follo7vs' that there muist he a great
nuiber of herds with less tian six
cows each. Tn fact, town peop! own
ing family cows are oftmn members.

Suggestions for- Success.
The prin ilpal points to keop in
mind for- building a sumccess~ful asso
ciation arc as follows:
1. Have tile blocks well or-gllaizd,
princip~ally with ireferee to satisfac
tory location of mlemblers anld the
place to keep tihe bull.
2. Have tile association well or
ganized, with carefully selected offl
corn, the principal one of whom is the
secretary. The secretar-y is the life
of the association, Hie should ho a
dair-yman interestedl in tihe breed se
lected and In broeding gener-ally, and
a man with good business 1(deas.
3. Buy the best bulls1 possile~ wit~h
the available money.
4. ProvIde a good place for the
hull, and ikeep him properly.
5. Hold at least two meetings a
-year, thie regular annual busineoss
meeting and the annual picnic.
6. Cooperate in all tis with the
county agent and the state specialist
in bull association work, and you will
-have an organization that will exert
a tromendous influencee for the im
pr'ovement of livestock in your com
munniy far-reanhingt In its henenitA.
