few thoughts in Gard to the live Stock situation i am presuming you As Well As your readers would like to know How cattle horses hogs and sheep have been Selling this season and As to the future prices and possibilities Supply and demand Etc to make a Long Story Short will say that up to Date i have sold More Dol Lars Worth of property in the same number of sales than any previous year this is due largely to the fact that cattle All the Way round have sold for stronger prices and that never before have cattle carried so much flesh As this season therefore the dollars had to come there was somewhat of a backwardness among the Farmers at first and a very Small per cent of cattle were bought to hold on the harms but during the last few weeks i can notice a great change and a brisk demand among the Farmers for cows he lifers calves and Vigw steers there is no question bu1 what the demand both general and local will get stronger and the prices firmer As we near Spring and i Hon Estly and firmly believe cattle wit make Money and that they Are Safe property it Good grades Are bandied i believe if the Iowa Farmer succeeds and makes High priced Iowa farms pay he must stick to cattle closer than in the past have sold far better than expected Farmers have been the bes users horse buyers have had hard uck at sales getting horses old enough to fill their orders the armers and buyers Are More particular than Ever pay the Irice but class and Quality they must puny the outclassed stuff of All Ages is getting harder to sell each but the Best and when we Weed out and keep nothing hut the Ibert we will make More Money on horses than Ever before and the United states will in ten years time control the Export Breed no horse Supply of the world taking the place of Belguim France and England this has been an off year for hogs the hogs dont seem to have any friends Farmers buying their Breed ing Stock at greatly reduced prices and very indifferent chances Are Ood for big profits on ail Breeding Stock purchased for illustration a lit bought now for 12 without doubt will bring next fall and also have two litters of pigs to her credit and they will quite Likely be in Good de Mand if we have a decent Corn crop no trouble at All to sell Price of Wool and Mutton on the open Market has made us All Wake up again and look the sheep squarely in the face the reason for High priced Wool and Mutton due largely to the Advent of the homesteader in All our Western states putting the big sheep men out of business and at the same time England confiscating Australia Supply of both Wool and Mutton Natur ally would make High priced sheep and it is reasonable to suppose that future prices will continue Good on the markets sustaining the sinal sheep Raiser and making you
