During recent months several
farmers have expressed a desire to
purchase foundation breeder stock

tle. Any farmer interested in bu"-
ing some heifers and a bull, is in
vited to a meeting at the Agricul
tural Building in Kenansville next
Thursday night, September 8, at
7:30. At this meeting, plans will be
made for assisting farmers to. get
the breeding stock they desire.
Within the next few weeks, a large
number of heifers and feeder stock
will be sold in the western part of
North Carolina and Virginia. This
is probably the best time of the
year to purchase breeder and feed'
er cattle, since the commercial pro
ducers will be offering most of
their spring crop for sale soon
