The writer had occasion to stop at
the Chas. Speck home at Goodrich cen
ter last Thursday and was fortunate in
finding the proprietors at home. We
say '.'proprietors," for the reason that
both Mi', arid-Mrs. Speck take an equal
Interest-in the farm, and ail the live
stock" "thereon. And we believe'Mrs.
Speck knows ^s much about the pedi
grees of the fine hogs on tte'place as
dots Mr. Speck.1 We found her busy

raspberries does lier housework, and
if Chas. happens to have business
away from home, casts an eye 'now and
then at the hogs to see that they are
all right. And in the meantime she
prepares a lot of fine Poland China
meat by smoking it, and we found tlie
smoke house to be well filled with'
choice hams and shoulders, and by the
way, we are having some of this fine
meat for dinner while the reader is'
perusing this paragraph. What sur
prises us is that some one else hasn't
located the Speck smoke house ere
this. Mr. Speck has some ninety spring'
pigs, 20 brood sows a'nd 20 fall pigs, all
Poland China breed, and the pigs are
a nice looking bunch. Mastodon De
signer, the March pig purchased from
H. I*. Saggau, is growing splendidly
and has every promise of making a
very large boar. Quartermaster, Mr.
Speck's older hog, will weigh at this
tiine about 1,000 pounds.* He is vory
active, doesn't show any signs of lame
ness at all. Chas. has just turned the
younger hogs on a fine field of alfalfa,
and has built a new hog house that
furnishes ample shade, and protection
from the weather. He Is devoting his
entire time to his herd, and expects to
have a good showing at-the county fair
this fall.
Kullberg Bros., of section 12 and 13,
Stockholm, are two young farmers and
stockmen who are making a go of the.
stock business. They are now run
ning 80 head of mixed cattle, have a
splendid pasture with plenty of shade
and lots of*.running water, arid the
cattle are doing fine. They keep the
Duroc breed of hogs, and raised 100
spring pigs. They have stock from
the herds of B. W. Hunt, Claude Mc
Donald, B. A. Sauelson & Son. This
spring they rebuilt their hog house,
and now have plenty of room with
ample light and air for their hogs. The
farm comprises 380 acres, and tiiis
year there are 80 acres in corn, 65 in
small grain and lots of hay land. The
boys have just purchased a new Case
separator of the 22-36 size and this they
will opperate with a big Mogul tractor.
I^ast Friday afternoon' they wore set

In 1919 the average cost of growing
wheat In .the representative \j 'heat dis
tricts was $2.15 per bushel. Tf.ie figures
were secured by the United ^States de
partment of agriculture field} men who
visited hundreds of fawns and made a
caveful study of production costs. It is
quite certain that the costs fojr the pres
ent'crop of 1920 will be considerably
At a $2.11 price for the ,3919 crop,
hp.If of tlie farmers would have lost
money on their .wheat. It estimated
by the experts nvho made tlie survey
that if a price on the 1919j crop had
been fixed to allow wheat /growers a
reasonable profit on at least three
fourths of the wheat produced, that
price would have had to be nbout $2.60.
For the great bulk of their crop, the
growers did not receive such a price.
In the past week prices of wheat
for September delivery in Ch".cago have
ranged arouhd $2.60. Jf sold, nt that
price, tlie production cost survey indi
cates tliat the bulk of the (1020 crop
would bo sold without a fair profit and
much of it at actual loss. The lf-20
costs of production are expecrted to run
considerably higher than in 1919 be
cause all items entering into crop costs
are much higher.
August lanke, formerly of Ida coun

township. This farm contains 280
acres, is well improved, and Mr. Linke
is doing well on the place. He has
been on the farm three years, and still
has a lease for two years. He recent
ly sold a load of hogs—36 head—that
averaged 406 pounds and for which he
received 14 cents per pound. At this
place we found 35 head of cattle,
among them being 11 milk cows, and

One of the good farmers up near
Schleswig, and one who was born on
the place he is farming today, is A. W.
Stegemann, of section 20, Otter Creek
township. A. W. is working 160 acres
and at this time' has two hired men,—
Hans Brodersen, a son of George Bro
dersen, has been with Mr. Stegemann
for some time', and Roland Iiowher, of
Schleswig, is helping hlme during the
busiest part pf the season. Besides
doing the work of the farm Mr. Stege
mann lias the contract for the road
work in Otter Creek, and covers about
a quarter of the township. He uses
a big Interstate tractor for the heavy
work, and a gasoline engine for the
power nt the house. The roads in
his neighborhood are in good shape,
showing that he understands his busi
ness. In livestock Mr. Stegemann
lias 125 spring pigs, 20 brood sows,
and at times feeds a good many cat
tle. He recently shipped a load1 of
cattle and a load of hogs to Omaha.
In hogs lie keeps the Poland China
breed and for his foundation stock he
went to John H. Andersen at Manilla.
His hogs are of the big type Polands
and are a nice lot. In cattle Mr.
Stegemann follows the Aberdeen An
gus, and keeps the pure breed. His
best stock he purchased from Richard
Fuester, of Ida county. Mrs. Stege
mann has 500 chickens, and is caring
for milk from 5 cows.
Mrs. Ed. Marquardt, who lives in
section 32, Otter Creek township, re
ports that sho had more than 100
chickens stolen from the place on Sun
day evening, July' 4. The Mar
quardts Were entertaining company in
the afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Marquardt ,of Denison, being at the
place and late in the evening consider
able noise was heard coming from the
vicinity of the chicken yard, and upon
investigation it was found that 100
chickens had been' taken. Mrs. Mar
quardt had 350 altogether, and she
feels the loss quite keenly. Mr. Mar
quardt is keeping 70 head of hogs this
season and also has quite a l'ew cattle.
Six cows furnish enough milk to make
about 25 pounds o£ butter each week."
George I'ulvor, a prosperous farmer
and stock feeder near Karlville, has
shipped $33,000 worth of fat cattle
since April first, his last shipment
having been made during the last week.

Over at Manchester, Iowa, a slogan
has been adopted by the farm bureau—
"A Good Road by Every Farm Homo."
The members of the farm bureau have
made a careful survey of their com
munity life and it was decided that ail
their activities were dependent on the
road problem. A committee has been
appointed to look up and report on the
following kinds' of roads: Gravel, rock,
cement or dirt. This committee will
also look into the financing and the
road laws. It is planned that the
roads in the consolidated school dis
trict shall receive attention before win
ter sets in.
Down at Knoxville the farmers were
rather pessimistic about the corn
crop, but now they claim prospects for
a bumper crop are very flattering.
The corn fields of that community
have during the week received copious
rains and the corn crop is assured.
