Local Association Makes
Highest Record In State
The Murphy Milkshed Artificial
Breeders association has achieved
the highest percentage of success
in breeding dairy cows of any
artificial breeding organization in
North Carolina. John Brown, Ex

Harold Hall, the inseminator
,0r the local organization, was
(?mpliinented by Mr. Brown, who
credits Hall's superior technique
,ls the main reason for his hi<*h
Percentage of success. A six-cour
area is served by the Murphy
lilk&hed Artificial Breeding asso
c'?ion, and the fact that Hall
must travel so far when cows arc j
to bo bred makes his success doub
The local breeding organization
is affiliated with the Southeastern
Artificial Breeding association. '
which has its main office in Chica
go and a bull stud at Ashevil'e.
The bulls in the stud at Asheville j
are animals of proven quality: that ,
is, their daughters have been test
ed and found to have inherited
high milk production from their
sires. Semen from these proven
high-quality bulls is received in
Murphy each morning in time for
the inscminator to breed all cows
to be bred that day. Any farmer
who wants his cow bred to one o*
these bulls can call Haiold Hall
at telephone 185 XW by noon and
have his cow bred that day.

The new directory has a gr 1

tinguishable from the old gray

Mi Smith asks that telephoni
users refer to the new directory fot
the desired number hooking up
the number helps avoid the possi
bility of getting a wrong number,
and frequently saves time for tlw

"Information" should bo called

Because of the continuing paper
shortage, only a limited suppU oi
directories could be printed, and
Mr. Smith requests that goo.l care
be taken of the new copies If any

he also suggests that they lie turn
ed in with other waste paper.

Browns Making Record
In Diversified Farming
Jake and Carroll Brown, broth- 1
crs and members of the Veteran's.
Farmer Training group sponsored I
ly the Vocational Agriculture de
partment of the Murphy High I
school, are doing an outstanding
job of farming on their lind near
The two Brown brothers who are
veterans, along with another broth
er. I/ce. are tending 1(>0 acres ol I
land on which they are setting a '
fine example of diversified farm
ing by marketing a large percent
age of the products grown through
Potatoes, rye. and tobacco were
the only crops grown on the farm
which were not marketed through !
livestock. All of the corn, hay, and |
part of the rye were fed. Cotton
seed meal, laying, growing, and
starting mash were the only fee's
The largest single source of in
come was from hogs. Five brood
sows produced forty-three pis.?
which were hand fed corn, miner
al. and protein supplement until
! four months old. These pigs then
hogged down four acres of corn
! pnd were marketed at an average
' age of seven months and at an
average weight of (wo hundred
pounds The Browns now have
fifty-six pigs showing better grow
th than they did last year by hand
feeding on a self-feeder on pas
Around twenty cattlc are fed
and sold each year. A herd of sheep
also produces several lambs and
some wool for sale. Poultry and
egg sales total near $1,500.
The income from nine-tenths
acre of tobacco was $965. Rye,
potatoes and truck crops sold
brought in another $500.
The brothers have increased the
production of their farm by crop
rotation, fertilization, utilization
1 of manure and other approved
( larm practices until they have one
of the most productive farms in
this section A twenty-year farm
loan was paid in seven years.
Through field selection of seed
corn over a period of years, a
I strain of high yield producing corn,
I known locally as "Brown's Big
River Corn", has been developed
| oy the family. Many local farmers
' set their seed corn each year
! from the Browns. One grower his
used this strain as one of the par
j cnts in producing N. C. T-20 hy
I brid seed corn.
