I extend a cordial invitation to mv fellow breeders and farmer friends
to attend my 5th sale of Bis Type Polands, whether you wish to buy or not.
If you want a sow that has quality, bred to the kind of Sires that will
keep up quality and good enough to go in any herd or on any farm and the
pedigrees on both sides are as good as you, will find, you will make your
own prices that day. ' . .
These hogs are in nice thrifty growing condition, and no doubt will
make money for the man that buys them. '
There is no doubt in my mind but that you can buy here as cheap as
any other sale you will attend this winter, there will be bargains in some
of my tried sows that have raised late litters and are a bit thin, but my loss
is your gain, so come on. .
The largest percent of the offering is bred to Clans Bob 1st, the offering

A Livestock Shortage.
While the meat storage reports are
conclusive proof o.f the shortage of
meat animals that exists at this time
the reports ast to the movements of
live stock to markets are confirma
tion of conclusive evidence.
A shortage of meals in storage is
always preceded by a lessened move
ment of meat animals to market.
The fact that there was approximate
ly only 500,000,000 pounds of meats,
including lard, in storage on Decem
ber i, 1921, indicates that the meat
supplies of the country have been
Reports on the movement" of live
stock to market during the month
of November, 1021, as set forth in
the Telegram recently, is even more
startling in its significance than the
storage reports, for the reason that
they indicate decreases in the sup
plies of meat animals 'on the farm,
and when the source and origin of
production are effected the finished
meat supply can not but dwindle. .
Forced liquidation, losfees in pro
duction, when production costs have
not been made, have, been the factors
in curtailing- the meat supplies of the
country. Increased runs of calves
to market at this time will further
tend to lessen the meat supply 12
months hence. The tendency to
market, calves is brought about
through the force of economic pres

from .marketing a calf is assured,
