The raising of grain has £?o:i orally been the chief occupation on farms but as old Father Time's education of the people continues, the br"odin~ of stock, carrying cn of dairv opra tlons on a larger plan and oilier ni»ans of money making liavo supplanted grain growing to a certain extent The breeding of stock is probably carried on to a larger extent than any other occupation on Nort'i Dakota farms outside of the wheal growing. In raising stock there is a largi» amount of money for the breeder, ar.d the "harvest" is almost continual. The result .of this diversification in farming methods is, of course, the breeding of some very fine stock. Nearly every farmer taking up stock breeding will specialize, and it will not be long before North Dakota will £ie looked upon not enly as the :,'roat wheat state, but also as the state in which all kinds of pure bred at jck j3 found.
