The Journal-Stockman n their issue of that date had the following comment: Buy well bred calves, feed them about a year on corn .alfalfa, and a little oats, and you'll have mar- Icet topping steers. That's the formula which John H. Plumb' and his cousin, Everett Plumb, followed In producing the load of l,042 y -pound yearlings which they sold at $6.20, yesterday's load- lot top, and the elder man has been doing the same thing for a good many seasons. Although the majority of the farmers In his locality have not bought any stockers yet this fall, Mr, Plumb picked up one bunch of calves here a couple of weeks ago and yesterday he bought an other. "There isn't much spread be tween fat and feeder cattle now," he admitted, "but feeders are the cheapest they have been in years and with this cheap corn, you don't need much of a margin.
