W. A. Briggs, the big cattle feeder,! !
book me in bia buvgy Saturday to hie )
feed pens near hie home and bid oat <
in a grove southeast of bis house, and <
showed me a pen of 20 three-year-old J
steers be has bad on feed since last J
September. These cattle were raised <
out near Bee Creek in this county and ,
were purchased by Mr Briggs from J
Mr. Thompson, son of Mr. Hollin 1
Thompson. This bunch is now seal <
fat and it looks unreasonable that a j
cow brute can attain such proportions
in size as these yearlings now meas '
are up to. There are quite a number
of them that will weigh from 1200 to
1500 pounds gross. It was almost im- j
possible for me to believe Mr. Briggs' :
statement as to the ages of this buncb ]
nctil he took n.'· to ?b< other pens on !
his place and «howed me mates to '
• hese fine yearlinzs that had been fed
in different pens en'; r Dssib'.y had not
rece ■ '•1 first- !a«s attention as bad
he first pen, si.d they were not half
irj ifavy. Mr. Br çrgs in*rn<is snow
ing tbie pea of yearlings »t the fat:
stock ι how at the cattlemen's con
vention at Fort Worth in March and j
ι he two hundred dollar premium of
fered for the best cattle of this age at
that show will be Mr. Briggs' money j
to a certainty. He is one of tbe most
successful cattle feeders in Texas and
he knows just bow to feed a beef ι
ateer to put tbe weight on him. These
cattle were raised by Mr. Thomp- !
eon and bis neighbors and they are
firat-class short horn Durbams. Mr.
Briggs paid about 120 per head for
them and no# they will bring on the
market from «70 to «75 per head.
None but high grade beef cattle could
ever be brought up to thia big stand
ard of beef prices and the oalcjme
of this bunch stiould be an object lea- !
