Increased In State
North Carolina farmers are how
keeping thousands of dollars at
home each year by raising their
own horses and mules, according
to Earl H. Hostetler, professer of
animal husbandry at State college.
There has been a marked in
crease in the number of horse and
mule, colts bred and raised in this
state 'within the past three . years
as farmers have become to depend
less on Western states for their.
At the present time, North Car
olina growers buy annually almost
30,000 mulei and 4,000 horses t a
cost of $6,500,000 from outside the
state. , . . .
States east of the 'Mississippi
and south ofc the Ohio river raise
but a very small proportion of their
work animals. North Carolina is
typical of most of these states.
The demand for mules is increas
ing, Hostetler said, especially' the
medium-sized cotton mule standing
from 15 to 15 hands high, and
weighing from 1,(KK) to 1,2(K) pounds.
There is also some demand for-a
slightly larger mule from the tobacco-producing
. areas. In these
counties, growers will pay more for
mules standing around 15.3 hands
high and weighing 1,200 pounds.
