Herring ft Young are adding
to their all-ready large store, Lv
building a shede on the south
side of their main building whioh
they will use for storeing imple-
ber of silos throughout the state
is also a factor that helps to ex-
plain the light drain on the feed-
Second, there has not been
sufficient increase in the arnouut
of livestock in Oklahoma, nor
increase in number that might
have been brought in from the
plains oountry to the west, to
consume our surplus in its fat-
tening for the market. The habit
of the plains livestock men of
sending their cattle to the north-
ern states to be fattened has
hardly begun to be broken.
Both conditions must be cor-
rected if Oklahoma farming is to
pay the profits and make the in-
crease that it should. We must
have more stock on our farms,
and we must induce the western
range men to ship their feeders
into Oklahoma—and to market
them in the Oklahoma market J
when they have been fattened.
These are subjects that will be |
treated at the convention of j
stockmen in Oklahom City March
3-4-5. Oklahoma has never had |
so important a convention as this<
within her borders. Oklahoma
farmers should appreciate this
opportunity brought to them
to help in working out the
great change that must be made
along this line.
Your attention is called' to the
change of the J. V. MoLaughin
