One of the basic elements of successful ranching in Crook county is livestock. The man, therefore, who is most willing to accept and apply the many known facts regarding livestock production is the one who will be most successful in the business. The first and most important thing in any kind of livestock business is to know which are purebreds and which are scrubs, and why. To be satisfied with merely thinking we know is not sufficient. We must be sure we have the facts They are obtainable from many sources and free for the asking. The argument that jt is too expens- ive to go into the purebred business is a poor excuse offered by many who are not converted to the fact that purebred or high grade animals are more profit- able than low grade or scrub animals. No rancher can afford to keep scrub animals T~hey are liabilities, not as- sets. Proof of this can be found on every hand. The best breeders of the country claim that the sire is half the herd. This being true, it is only a question of time till any man who is progressive can,by the use of the right s~res, improve his animals till they will compare favorably with the best of an- imals.

There is one branch of animal husband- ry in which many people'go wrong who are otherwise straight on the value of high grade or pure bred animals. It is in dairying. Just why they believe they can make an animal walk on the sidewalk and in the middle of the road at the same time is not clear. It has taken centuries to produce the breeds of dairy and beef cattle we now have. The object has always been to improve the animal for beef production or milk and butter. The men who are trying to make the same animal do both are choosiv.g the difficult or impossible way when there is a sure, easy way. The quality of the animal i~ only half the battle; feed and care is the other half. On this point many of our so- called successful stockmen fall down. They expect the high grade or pure bred animal always to come out on top even if.stinted with feed and care. This is unfair to the good animals. One difference between a high clas~ animal and a scrub is that the pure bred uti. |izes its feed to better advantage; it can put on more pounds of weight per day, or, in the cue of dairy cows, pro- account the above mentioned facts and many others. The man who already "knows it all" has no time for new ideas or demonstrated facts. JUNIOR CLUBS A VERY wise and much loved American said, "the best crop any country can produce is its crop of boys and girls." If we agree with this statement we accept a great re- sponsibility. The next question that arises is what we shall do with this all important crop. There are. many an- swers. Each father and mother and school teacher knows just what should be done. The average answer from all of them would be "give them an education and the proper home train- ing." The ways of doing it are about as varied as there ate different fam- ilies. The latest form of rural education as recognized by both state and na- tional institutions is that which accepts the community as the unit and recog- nizes the boy and girl u one of the most important factors in it. The com- munity has its problems, some peculiar to itself, others in common with the county. If these questions are solved for any given community, the people thereof must do it with what assistance they can secure from the outside. If there are to be good schools, gcod teachers, good homes and social well being, the individual farms and ranches of that community must prosper. To accomplish this the boys and girls must be taken into account as important factors in the solution of the problems. The experience ~bf hundreds of thous- ands of boys and girls in club work in every state in the Union during the past eight years has demonstrated in the most concrete manner that the boys and girls can do more than most people dream of in promoting commun- ity interest and sqlving agricultural and home problems. The reason this is true is simple; young folks are en- thusiastic, anxious to learn, easy to teach, and readily cO-operate. Many examples may be cited to show how this works. In one community in Fremont county the boys and girls had been working with pig einbs for sever- al years, When the Farm Bureau was organized, the community decided it wanted to encourage dairying instead of hog raising. In order to assist in solving what was considered a com- munity problem, the boys and girls went into the dairy calf club, discon- tinuing the pig clubs: There was no dairy stock in the community, so a ear load of dairy calves were brought in and distributed among the club mem- bers. The banks took notes from the club member~. Similar thing~ have OCTOBER 14, 1920 been done in other counties with sheep, poultry, beef cattle, etc. Among the most valuable results of club work in the community is the training the boys and girls receive in the fundamental principles of agricult- ure and home problems. They learn quickly the importance of proper breed- ing, feeding and care of animals. The importance of selecting and testing of seed. Also improved methods in house- hold economy. Furthermore, they de- velop leadership, community spirit and a love for the things and opportunities that rural life affords. A brief summary of results of club work in Wyoming for the paSt year will indicate something of the progress made. The following results were ob- tained in the various clubs, potato clubs, gardening, canning, poultry, pigs, dairy calves, sheep, and sewing clubs: Number of clubs, 96. :- Boys and girls enrolled, 1562. Number of members completing the work, 1101. Total value of products raised, $39,- 015,80. Total cost of production, $16,296.17. Net profit, $,42.719,63. This is the result of club work that can be reduced to figures-and this, too because of careful and systematic ree- l orals. The most valuable training, as has been stated, is that which cannot [ be reduced to figures. Crook County should avail herself of [ the opportunity to encourage the young ! folks to assist in solving community and county problems. Beef calf clubs could be organized to advantage. This is a good way of introducing high grade or purebred stock into all communities and at the same time develop success- ful stockmen for the future. The banks of the county have ex- premmd a willingness to assist in finan- cing a proposition of this kind. The rest is up to the farmers, What do you want to do about giving the boys and girls of Crook County a chance to go forward? OLDEST BANK IN CROOK, WESTON AND L. A. BROWN, President A.L. RIPLEY, V.

Community Meetings Immediately following the member- ship drive, a meeting of the reau will be held in each community, at which time a program of work will be outl~ed. This is the moat importlmt work of the organization, because upon ly for theupbuilding of that commun- ity, the county F&rm Bureau will not be a suceess~ The state and the na- tional Farm Bureaus depend entirely upon the county and community organ- izations. As a Farm Bureau member, it is your duty to be present at these meetings. Do not allow small things to keep you away, but decide to be there and then do so. Membership Drive During the week of October 11 every farmer and rancher in the county will be given the opportunity of learning just what the Farm Bureau ~s and what itis doing. A force of six men will cover the county and call personally upon each farmer. These six men are farmers who are interested in the de- velopment of the farming business. They know what the Farm Bureau is and will gladly answer any questions you care to ask them. Farm bureau members will be expected to assist in getting these men from one ranch to another. Be prepared to do your part if called upon. Remember that this is your organization, and you will get out of it just what you put into it. Co-operative Shipping During the year from July, 1919, to July, 1920, Arkansas farmers made a total of 328 cars in co-operative ship- ments of livestock. They made the neat saving of $72,788 by doing it, this figure represeffting the difference be- tween their net returns and the high- est prices they were offered on the local markets.
