Feeds 100 Head of Stock,
Sells $4500 Worth of Hiy
From SO Acres ot Alfalfa
Tho Tlmes-Horahl ban urged from
time to time thu advantages of alfalfa
flelds and occasionally finds ran) fig
ures to back up Its assertion that thu
alfalfa man has tho best of the other
farmer in this section.
.This weok wo had a neighbor, who
has what In termed a dry farm, as
it Is not situated on thu river but
docs got nomo wutor for Irrigation,
g(vo a discussion of his operations
for tho past season.
This man baa some 80 acres in
alfalfa and this season he disposed
of 4,500 worth of hay besides hav
ing enough 1oft to feed his 100 head
of stock. Ho sold twelve head of
steers, that brought him over flOOO,
and had Just brought In 18 turkeyu
that day which he sold to local peo
ple. During the season ho milks a
number of cows and tho butter fat
Is shipped to an outsldo creamory
which soiids a good slzo chock ovory
What farm along the river with
that amount of ncrcago In uso can
mako as good return? Is alfalfa
worth while? Or Is the present plan
of overflow meadow land tho p'ropor
way to prosper? The Irrigation
project will solve that problem.
