Cooper Brothers to Supply Eggs
and Broilers to the Market.
About a month jigo Cooper Brother?,
Mr. William F. Cooper, the 'attorney, I
and Mr. Harry O. Cooper, late of St. :
Louis, Mo., an expert poultry breeder ;
of some fifteenth years ' experience, :
secured the Julius Flin ranch, about ;
four miles from the city of Tucson, and ;
have begun to convert the place- into a j
broiler and epaz plant. There is not an
establishment of "the kind in this lerri-
tory, and the gentlemen who have em
barked in the industry should meet with
all the success they anticipate.
All the dressed poultry which comes
', into our markets is shipped from tho
j east, and is of rather poor quality,
j This is not to be wondered at when tho
facts are considered. Of course the first
choice of all the poultry marketed in
the east goes to the buyers who are on
the ground. After they have selected
the choice specimens the culls are
shipped to tho western markets, and
there disposed of at prices which would
amply pay home breeders

At present very iittle in the way of
breeding is being attempted at the San
Xavier Ranch, as it is necessary before
any extensive work can be performed in
that direction, to St the place especially
for the object in view. Their present
stock consists of ninety-seven well bred
youngsters, most of which will begin
laying in November. They now have
an incubator capacity of GOO eggs, with
brooders for a like number of young
chicks. This capacity will be increased
on tho first of January to about 1,500,
and as rapidly as the demand is suffi
cient, a corresponding increase will be

conclusion reached by many that young
chicks cannot be successfully hatched
and raised in this climate iu the warm
months of summer. Bv the middle of
the coming month there will be about
600 young chicks on the ranch, and
they will be ready for market about the
first of November. After that date
Cooper Bros, hope to be able to supply
quite a demand for their poultry.
Another feature of the business which
will be introduced on the San Xavier
ranch will be caponizing on a large
scale. There is such a demand in the .
oasiern markets for capons, that the ,
prx-es are way up. Tho climate and :
conditions hero make it the very best
possible field for the production of first
class capons, and none are ever seen in
Arizona marKets. mere is no ques
tion about the delicious qualities of the
meat of a fine capon, and everyone who
has ever tasted this fine delicious bit of
food anxiously longs for more, and tho
prices paid are evidence that people
know a good thing wheu they see it.
The specialties of this ranch will be
bred White Wvainlottes for
Cooper in tho east, and which have i
long since established a reputation for I
gameness and fighting qualities unex- j
celled by any in existence. j
Later on there will be pens of Pekin
dnuks, and Hocks of Mammoth Bronze
turkeys. This stock will also be pure, ,
the eggs coming from the best selected
8pec:mens of the famous breeders of
these birds. i
A , manv neooi0 have conceived
the idea that the poultry business is .
nothing but a pastime for old women
and feablo minded children, but when
statistics aro examined it is shown that '
the amount expended each year for
poultry of different kinds is in advanced
of manj- businesses in which a very
much greater capital is invested. A
poultry plant which markets 30,000
eggs in a year ii quite an institution in
itself, and yet there are a number
which do that and even more. In ad
dition they furnish thousands of pounds

little heed is paid to the details, and ;
most people who attempt the raising of
poultry on a large scale underestimate
the amount of labor required to do
what is absolutely necessary for the at-
taiument of satisfactory results. It is a
business requiring constant uttontion,

It is to be hoped that the Coopers
will receive that encouragement which
will enable them to make their venture
