Aberdeen " 26, ' !
West Point ' VI,
Columbus " 2S,
Macon " 2U, "
At these meetings it is proposed to
discuss two subjects which are of vital
importance to the farmers of the Prai
rie section. Wa will have men thor
oughly posted to discuss the breeding
and feeding of beef cattle, and we have
been fortunate in securing the services
of Mr. W. M. Newton, of the Board
of Trade of Birmingham, Ala., who is
an expert on hay.
In the past many hay growers who
were familiar with the clatses and
grades of hay, have shipped their hay
to Jmarkets improperly graded. This
has resulted not only in loss to t e
shipper but has caused misunderstand
ing between the grower and the com
mission men. Mr. Newton will not
only diecus the growing and shipping
of hay and the market grades,. bift we
will have at each meeting several dim
ples of hay and have been him gnfflsT'lt
and show the farmers the differences in
the grades. ..
The prairie section is one of the b.al
hay sections in the south and is now
shipping large quantities of both John
son grass and alfalfa hay. These meet
ings will furnish an opportunity f r
every grower to study tho grades of
hay under an expert, and we feel sure
that, the meetings will result in great
good to the growers of this section.
