Quality and productive capacity of the average Louisiana farm animal Is still low. Thousands of farmers are wasting time and money on animals that give less returns for the same expenditures than would better stock. The price of land, the price of labor, and the price of everything else is high. If animals are to hold their own in our system of agriculture they must not only be high-priced them. selves but they must also be of high quality. The value of livestock depends on g ood care, housing, feeding and dis ease control, as well as on breeding. Good breeding, however, determines the fundamental capacity of an ani mal to be profitable to its owner. Ac cordingly, the replacement of scrub Ssires by good purebreds is considered a basis for other improvement. While the use of good females is likewise important, good sires bring results more quickly and at less expense. Get a good sire.
