After Harvest The Department of Agriculture "tells you that the sooner you plow after the crop is harvested, the better your crop the follow ing year will be. Early plowing will make a difference in the yield of from 3 to 6 bushels per acre in corn or grain.

At present it would be interesting to the public to study the fresh meat prices, as charged by the Packers, to the retail markets. If we all understood conditions, we would often see things different. Take a dressed bog, as an example. The trade no longer wants certain undesirable cuts at any price. We are getting 10c per pound more for pork loins, or chops, than we are for shoulders, Cc more than we get for fresh hams. These three cuts are the only part of the hog wanted at all. ' This represents about half of the weight of the hog. The other half must be worked off foe less than the net cost of the bog. There was a time when all parts of the beef and hog sold at only a small difference in price. Study the meat business with us and always order Reynolds Packing House Products.
