PROFIT ON PALMETTO FARMS
IN FEEDING MARKET CATTLE
Can we, with economy, feed
beef cattle in this State? Can
we feed cattle for market and
at least get the manure for our
trouble? Can we feed beeves at
These questions are often
asked the dairy division of Clemson
college, wnich has prepared
a brief summary of results of
feeding a lot c" about thirty
cows. This summary is of
interest as by this means is presented
facts and not guess work.
Feeding the lot was begun on
November 13 and it consisted of
a mixed bunch of steers and
heifers, nearly half of each.
By February 25 they had
gained 3,896 pounds, or a gain of
218 pounds each, averaging a
little more than 141-2 pounds per
head per week.
' This, as any feeder knows, is a
very good gain and was particularly
good in this instance, as
they were a mixed lot of mountain
cattle, obtained locally, and
of a rather low average in
In this time they consumed
105,600 pounds of silage and
21,162 1-2 pounds of cotton-seed
meal, or an average of 37 pounds
silage and 71-2 pounds meal per
head per day.
If silage is valued at $3 per
ton and meal at $50 per ton,
then these steers cost to feed at
rate of 171-4 cents per day. To
offset the cost of the feed was
obtained the gain of 14 &-15
pounds per week, the manure,
and the increase of value to the
whole animal that comes fr^ ?.
uit auucu ucsil.
In some sections it is expected
V- to sell the animal for at least
one cent per pound more when
fattened than they cost when
thin. Using these figures, the
account stands as follows:
Silage consumed in the 15
weeks, at $3 per ton, $158; meal
for the same time at $30 per ton,
$315; total cost of feed, $473.
Weight at start was 22,850
pounds. At three and a half
cents per pound, the amount
would be $799.75. The gain was
5,896 pounds, making the selling
weight 28,746 pounds. If sold
at a gain of one cent per pound,
28,746 pounds at 41-2 cents per
pound, $1,293.17; from this take
cost, $799.75; balance, $493.42.
Cost of food, $473; selling
price above all cost, $20.42.
The foregoing shows that this
industry may be profitable as an
aid in building up the farm, but
the following cautions are presented
with the suggestion of
fattening only a few, say a car
lot, the first time and let the
business grow as one becomes
accustomed to all the conditions
to be met:
If cattle are brought from a
distance, study the freight rates
and see if that may prohibit the
In buying be careful that they
are not weighed just after receiving
food and water.
Learn if the market in which
you wish to sell will take heifers
or if it pays better for steers,
and act accordingly.
Do not feed too long, but yet
enough to satisfy the market.
Tin - ~ -
# wnen caiue are nearly finished,
the cost of gain is much increased.
Buy as late in the season as
possible and yet get them at low
prices and sell on the markets
before early lambs and grassfed
animals are offered.

Interest in Benton's Success. x
The fortunes of "Rube" Benton,
the Macon baseball pitcher
who has just been sold to the
Cincinnati team of the National
league for $7,500, the highest
| price ever paid lor a minor
leaguer, are being watched with
considerable interest by two
Fort Mill ball players, Springs
Parks and "Pug" Ferguson, both
of whom caught Benton in a
number of games which he
pitched for Lancaster a season or
two ago. Benton was then employed
in a Lancaster cotton
mill and got an occasional afternoon
off to help out the Lancaster
club. If he sticks with the
Cincinnatis for a few years and
saves his salary, he will be able
to cut out the looms and spindles
for all time.
