Dairy and Stock

Keep the sheep dry under foot. A sheep thinks more of his feet than of his head.

The man who does not test his herd will very likely find some day that his brag cow is the poorest.

Write to your Congressman and ask him to vote for the Grout Bill. It may help him get down on the right side of the fence.

There are profit and success in the dairy business if one has the patience to master the little details. After all, life is made up of little things.

Have you a hitching-post with chain and snap just where you want your caller to leave his horse? If you haven't, he will quite likely hitch to one of your maples, or to the garden fence.
