Hogs Paid Tor Farm
Ten years ago. Luther Taylor. Coal
county farmer, moved onto an un
improved tract of bottom land Sin
gle handed, except for the help given
him by his Indian wife and growing
children, he has put into cultivation
150 acres of heavy timbered land. He
has never grown an acre of cotton on
the farm, but doesn't owe a dollar
and has a comfortable cash reserve
in the bank to finance any projects
How did he do ie? M. W. Plett
ner. farm demonstration agent for
coal county who relates the story
says hogs "have paid the way. Taylor
raises corn, as his principal crop,
though he diversifies enough to give
rotation. He also is building up a
herd of pure-bred dairy cattle. I'lett
ner recently went over Taylor's
leeoreLs for the past four years. Dur
ing the last three years, he says Tay
lor has sold more than $3,000 worth
of hogs every vear.
