• stock production expands, it
brings demands for packing and
| processing plants. A great many
' poultry processing plants have
sprung up over the state in re
j cent years, and major wheat
packing plants are showing more
and more interest in North Caro
lina. The new Swift plant at Wil
son is a prime example of this.
It is true that our farm econo
my in North Carolina has been
at a low ebb for several years, but
when we think about what is
happening in the poultry and
livestock industry we have every
i reason to be hopeful about the i

to continue the rapid development
of these areas of agriculture.
