The chickens alone arc valued at and the Ravens also own three large laying buildings, with a fourth and even larger one under construction. The St. Albert man also is a believer in automation. Feed is mixed in an automatic feed mill and distributed by an electric feed "Since I got he snys, "I can look after birds as easily as Mr. Raven's philosophy of business and farming is simple. "Farmers have to get bigger and fewer to be practical and economical. There's no hope for the man with a few cows, pigs and 100 chickens. He'll never starve to death, but he'll never make a dollar either." Bir ST. ALBERT, Alta. The agricultural economis doubted if a penniless hirec hand could become a successf fanner, but Tony Raven h proven them wrong. Fifteen years ago Mr. Ravfii an immigrant from Englanc was earning a month o the Jeff Bocock dairy farm ne St. Albert. Today he is knm as tfte Birdman of St. Albe and owns a poultr; operation which grossed in 1969. It all started when Mr. Rav asked Mr. Bocock for the use an abandoned building on t just a small place whe be could raise a few chickens. "He said 'Sure, go ahead.' I started on my own with abo 50 chickens." Mr. Raven and his wife, Jim began selling eggs at night aft their farm chores were do and within one year the flock chickens had expanded to The Ravens needed mo money to enlarge their litt business, but the banks cons dered a farmhand a poor credi risk. Tha much-needed capita finally was obtained throug Mr. Bocock and the fledging o eration soon was able to slant on its own. MARKETING IS KEY Mr. Raven says marketing the key to his success. He ha never increased egg productio unless he was assured of mar kets.
