Now the Time
! To buy stock cattle.
J To' fill that silo.
I You can make some money on live stock.
iWe lost money 011 the wheat crop.
Last August we loaned a customer $300.00 with which
he bought 16 heifers. Last week he sold the hunch and
cleared $230.00. It cost him nothing to make this extra
profit—he had the pasture aad grew the roughness.
Thereby turning the usual dead loss into a net profit.
You can do it,
We make a specialty of cattle loans, large or small. We
try to keep in touch with the market, we can advise you
on what to buy. We will back our judgment and our
faith in a good man, by putting up the money to buy the
stockers, if you have the roughness and the ability to
handle stock. Figure with us. Terms to suit. We can
and do help our customers make money.
