This type of cattle was first introduced in the Lost Cane community some tln-.G ago by Stanley Fradenburg whose success with this breed'has been very satisfactory and who helped Influence the selection of Shorthorn Durhnms by the club members. His herd is •still comparatively small, but of sufficient size for his needs. The ten anhrmls purchased by the 4-H group will be featured In a community livestock show at ^Lost Cane next.

A first prize of $50 .Is to be awarded with second nnd third prizes of $20 and $10. Tills .money Is being given by various ijeople in the community who are Interested in promoting a wider interest In pure-bred livestock. SThe plan under which the club t liembei5 bought the cattle permits ttcm to make a payment each year ipth the proceeds from the safe ol •calves produced. It is estimated that each animal will produce a calf annually which at two months of age will bring around $40 or $50 This money will be applied to the'-total owed, by the club-member and when tile, animal has been paid lor this amount will be added to the profit obtained from milk and butter produced by the cow. Owners of the cattle will grow their own . feed and will provide individual barns or sheds for their animals. These .heifers will not re- <ju!re a great amount of feed this summer, however, as they will be pastured. „. • ' Members' of the' club who purchased the heifers are: Jack Lewis, Clarence • Reed, Thelma Statler, Billie Gulley, Henry Slatler, Junior lawson, Lowell H.
