Loss From Poor Stock
We take this interesting informa-
tion from a Texas exchange. The
situation set forth in this article is
present, more or less in this state.
Our farmers may not have lost so
much through poor stock as the
farmers of Texas, but any loss on
that account is an avoidable loss.
Here is the statement from the
Texas paper, and we put it before
our readers for their consideration.
Texas is the greatest live stock
state in the Union, counting num-
bers and not quality. \\Y have more
cattle than any other state, mote
mules than ary other two states.
more horses than any other state
except Illinois, we are fourth in
hogs and tenth in sheep. At tin
values placed on our domestic farm
animals by the I'.S. Government
on tin first of January 1909, they
represented a wealth in our fanner-
hands of $312,857,000.
This is a big sum of money, but
1 it falls far short of what it would
be if our farm animals were what
they should be.
Ohio is a fairly advanced state in
live stock making. If our cattle,
hogs and sheep were as well bred as
such animals in <Hiio they would be
worth $*7.*(54.000 more than they
now arc . If our horse- and mule-
were rated at as much per head as
i of South Carolina, they would be
worth $99,446,000 more than they
now. stand for. And the' total ad-
ditional wealth in the possession of
our farmers would be $187,350,000,
if their live stock of all kinds was
bred up to the standard reached in
the two states named.
For lack of tnis care in grading
up their stock our farmers are poor-
er by $187,350,000.
