Barrett • *♦♦♦♦♦♦•♦♦♦♦♦♦•*♦*♦* I have a number ot inquirires from farmers abuout the prices of cattle and asking my advice about selling. I had a part ot a car on the St. Louis market last week shipped with some hogs and car. give you some idea about how they sold. We had some fat Jerset steers weighing 730 pounds in st Louis that sola for 4 I*4 cents a fairly good Jersey bull weighing about 900 pounds brought 3 cents, some veal calves in fair condition 6 cents, some little old Jersei calves about like our common large size skim milk calves 3 cents, banner cows $1.75 a hundred. We had ho common Jersey year! ings in the car but I Judge from ' quotations that they would bring 2 I'2 to 3 cents. It cost about 75 cents a hundred to ship heavy cattle, SI.OO fo yearling and $1.25 for calves Hu reason for the difference is tha ' you cannot got the weight in tin car. lam not very well qnalifiei to say about the shrink, hut I think that 5 per cent would bt about the average. Now the question of whether i pay a to sell or hold depends large ly on conditions. I see no ad vantage in holding steers that are fat and ready to market. I would go on and sell them and take my loss, but I would try to break even by buying steers weighing 500 or 600 pounds to carry oyer and graze another secson. I think that your chances for making a profit another season is good. I you have son e good fat veal calves, I believe that you could sell them for enough to buy two year old steers and I think that this ,would be good business. These are the only classes of cattle that 1 cau sue that a man can afford to pul on the market this fall except the case of a man that is not in the cattle business except to have a few surplus yearlings from his dairy or family milk cow with no proper facilities for wintering them. In this case I would strongly reccomen't the formation of com munity beet clubs to eat them up or might sell them on the pres ent.market as a last resort. Good hogs are worth about 8 cents here and I would strongly advise shipping as fast ns they ate ready for market We are book ing cattle and hogs for coopera tive shipment all the time now. m m ■ lam planning to make a hay exhibit at the Tri-State Fair and I have scoured the county over for some cowpeas or sov bean hay endup tilt now, I have hem unable to find any. I see no special reason why a man wi fi good Johnson grass meadows should worry about any other hay j though I had rather have a good ton of pea or bean hay than 112 tons of the best Johnson grass hay but for the man without any other source of hay, to neglect this splendid opportunity than waich there is no better; 1 cannot understand it.
