FARM NOTES By John B. Deavours County Aftent Hale's Milk Business Grows Mr. Aubrey Morrison, of the Greensboro Cooling' Station, stated la;t Monday that dairymen of .this community are shipping 40,000 pounds of Grade A milk daily into our city. He also stated that they averaged shipping about 50,000 pounds per day throughout the year. Well, if we multiply 365 by 50,000 that gives us 18,250,000 pounds of milk being brought into Greensboro. This, however, does not represent our total milk production, for the county as a large number of dairymen ship milk into dur two plants at Gallion. During the last four years we have 'ir.ade rapid strides in the milk industry. For example here's some interesting figures about the volume of milk being shipped to the Morri-on Brothers Cooling Station during tha months of November for the last four years: 1947, 15,000 pounds; 1948, 24,000 pounds; 1949, 35,000 pounds; and in 1950, 40,000 pounds. The dairymen are to be commended on the fine job they have done in helping to build up the relatively new industry of this section. Indications are that the ir.oney derived from the sale of milk in Hale County will far iurpa:s that obtained Jrom cotton. Beef Cattle Situation. Outlook A. W. Jones, ipecialiit in marketing: The outstanding features of the cattle situation this year are: (1) The large number calves and light cattle that went into feed lots last fall and winter; (2) the unusually strong demand for all cla:ees of feeder cattle and breeding stock sine? early January; (3) the very small number of tne higner grades of cattle marketed in the GROVE DRIVE-IN THEATRE 1 Demopolis, Alabama "The Family Theatre' Week Beginning NOVEMBER 26 First Show-. 6:30 Second Show 8:30 Sunday Green Dolphin Street i tarring Lana Turner, Van Hef-Hn.

Jr and Jean Rogers. . . .. first half of the year; (4) the sharp rise in the prices of the lower grades in that period; (5) the large- numbers of cattle on feed for market .this fall; and, (6) the belated movement of grass cattle to market because of unusually) good range and pasture conditions. Beef cattle occupy the most favored position in our livestock economy today. They have held this place for the last 10 years, and more recently the beef industry . has been just about the moit favored enterprise in all igriculture. Aa cattle production increases, prices of cattle may be expected to work lower unless, of course, offsetting factors, such as population increase or continued inflation, create a larger demand. Looking beyond 1950 we can expect cattle numbers to increase still more as a new production cycle is how underway. Five year;, ago, cattle numbers were at an all-tixe high of nearly 86 million head. Numbers were down to 78 million at the end of 1947. Increases in 1948 and 1949 brought the total to 80 million. With a larger calf crop in sight and smaller slaughter this year, the 1950 increase in number should be around 3 million head. At the rate of increase now in prospfct, we may have 90 to 95 million cattle by 1954 or 1955. Grassland agriculture and cattle raising are especially suitable for much of the land in the areas of this coun try, and much can be done toward solving some of the prob lems of -urplus crop production by putting more of this land into grass. , Letters Would Be Appreciated Our good friend John R. Low- rey, wno was assistant county Mr. Dan Goldsmith, 3024 Cur-ron Road. Louisville, Ky., owner of Cooela Cut Kate Store at 935 West Broadway, says there just aren't enough words in the English language to praise HADACOL cor-rectly. He says he knows most folks don't realize what a change HADACOL can make in their life if their systems are deficient in Vitamins B, B, Iron and Niacin. Here is Mr. Goldsmith's statement: "Before I started taking HADA-COL I was run down and nervous and had a hard time sleeping nights. With my work in the store I have to spend sometimes 14 hours day on my feet. Since I am in the retail business I saw how many folks were asking for HADACOL so I decided to try it myself. A fur the first couple of bottlea I could tell a definite improvement Now I have all the dcd and enerrf in the world, my nerves are steady as . ever and 1 really do get a good , night's rest.
