In addition to other improved practices such as production and conservation of food and feed, the specialists recommended the production of hatching eggs on the smaller farms. They showed that net farm income could be Increased at least $900 with the addition of a flock of 400 hens. For the farmers having frojn ten to twenty acres cropland there appeared to be more possibilities for increasing net income than on the little farms, wi& truck crop* ' and poultry offering probably the ' best opportunities. On the larger farms having more than 20 acres cropland there are various possibilities that are out- ; standing. These include dairying, beef cattle, sheep, poultry and truck crops.
