a strong demand for hay in the South.
Recently this company has sold in the
following cities: New Bern, N. C.,
Lavonia, Ga., and Rocky Mount, N.
C. Other shipments have also been
made to other points.
"This hay has been handled through
a broker at J5Q cents per ton brokers

basis of f. o. b. shipping station, the
terms usually being draft on arrival,,
inspection allowed, national hay asso
ciation grades and rules to govern.
The prices realized on the hay have
ranged from $27.50 to $33 per ton."
Now, isn't this a pretty how-to-do.
asks the Extension Service workers of
the State College and Department of

tons were produced, worth, according
ot a recent study of this subject, $14,
