The Best Crop Is Always The Kids.. (Pictured above — 7 grandchildren of Mr. & Mrs. J. H. Mescher of Bancroft But... the NEXT THING Is Good, Steady Farm Income — There are many trends in farming, today, and evident for the future. Most Farmers in our area rely to great extent on their actual income from the sale of pork to finance their farm operations, to bring to their families the necessities of life, and to provide that "something extra" which makes for better living. — The youngsters are the most important crop on any farm, today as they always have been. But their future, and the future of farming in general, depends to some extent on how their Dads of today keep pace with changes in farming methods and consumer demands. — The hog raiser of today who is raising Meat-Type Hogs has made a good start toward insuring a better faimly income, and a better future for his children. If he is not raising them, but is making a start or thinking about it, he is moving in the right direction. — We, here at WESTERN BUYERS, know me trend in consumer buying of pork, which is reflected in the prices packers will pay for pork and the type of pork they want to buy. It is because of this, and the fact that we know the maintenance of a fair return to pork raisers in the future depends on Meat-Type Hogs, that we so sincerely urge our many friends — if they have not already done so — to thoroughly study the question of improving .their pork income with Meat-Type Hogs.

County Favors Project By 79-36 Ballot A promotion program for wool and lamb was approved hy wool producers of the nation in a referendum which ended in all states on August 19, it hns been reported here by Virgil L. Rohlf, manager of the Kossuth county ASC committee. The plan was approved in 41 states by big majorities which more than offset the failure of the proposition to receive the required majority in seven states'. Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico. Oklahoma. Pennsylvania and Texas did not give the required majority but their producers will participate in the program the same as those of other states sinct the proposal was nationwide in scope. Ln the nation as a whole, producers owning 9,127,059 sheep voted in favor of the promotion program while owners of 3,517.680 sheep voted against it. This meant that owners of 72.2 percent of the sheep involved were in favor. For approval, the proposition had to be favored by owners of over two-thirds of the sheep involved. , In Iowa, the vote was 2,922 producers owning 190,904 sheep for the program and 1,689 owners having 108,793 sheep against. From the standpoint of number of sheep, those owning 63.7 percent were in favor of the program. In Kossuth county, the vote was 79 producers owning 3,164 sheep for the program and 36 owners having 912 sheep against. The plan which was approved by the referendum stems from the National Wool Act of 1954 and provides for advertising, pro* moling and developing related market activities for wool and lamb. The plan will be financed by deductions from payments under the wool incentive program.
