but what I am saying is that she will not pay for her feed at market
prices; that if you were to sell this feed in the market for what
it is worth and what you could get for it, that it would return more
than you will get from that kind of a cow. Of course, If you take the
cows away from the farm a great deal of this feed would become value-
less. Alfalfa hay to-day can be bought for $3.00 a ton in the stack, in
some of the western states and we are mighty glad to buy it for
$18.00 and $20.00. What gives it that value? It is the dairy cow;
she is the market and there is no reason why a farmer should not
have a good market In his barn rather than a poor one. I think it is
the highest sort of practical business, the hardest kind of common sense
for a man to look for a market where he can sell his grain for the
highest price.
