Abstract

Farmers throughout the central states annually feed and finish for market thousands of sheep. During the past decade a great many farmers have adopted the policy of purchasing western lambs and yearlings during the months of September, October, November and December with the intention of feeding them from sixty to one hundred and twenty days, depending upon the condition of lambs, markets, etc., and then selling them at an advance in price sufficient to return a nice profit on the investment.
