hittin it pretty lucky on the other
bunches I've raised, but they's always
a first time for anything. Prices ain't
been too bad at all for, the past few
weeks. Practically all the markets
are payirt from 22.00 to 22.50. I'd
like to have several nice shoats to
sell along now. Maybe then me and
the old lady might be able to take a
little trip before the summer's over.

than I've ever been tall , doin
before. If we'd of jest i ii i rains,
I believe I'd of made twice more corn
to-the acre than I've ever made be
fore. I'll make a little bit yet, 'cause
it aint completely gone. But I wont
make near enough to feed out no big
bunch of pigs like old Janie usually
brings. Guess I'll jest have to sell
some of 'em , and keep what I feel
like 111 have enough feed to take
care of. I can't forgit about my old
mules 'cause they like corn too.

milo this year. ; It's the first I'd
ever planted and to tell the truth I'd
never heard of the stuff until last
year. My county agent talked me into
it and I'm glad he did too, 'cause that
stuff didn't hurt none hardly during
that dry weather. . I don't have no
idea how much, itll turn, out when
it gits ready to cut but whatever it
yields, it'll come in mighty handy this
They say a lot of farmers ia bavin
good luck a keepin their hogs on per

down on their feed bill, right much
