WHAT THE PURE BRED BREEDERS GOT - The breeder of pure bred got in exchange for his young bull a grade or scrub which he sold for beef. This animal usually brought from 60 to 80 per cent of the value of the pure bred given in the trade. He placed another pure bred of his favorite breed in his own commun- ity. He was building up a future market for his bulls and in some instances for heifers. He was helping his own business and his com- munity. SOME OF THE RESULTS IN THE COUNTY Numerous exchanges have been mane. Many owners of grades and scrubs have sold them and bought pure breds. Men in the market for pure bred bulls have been assisted in getting what they wanted. Several men who have their first pure bred bull are already planning on getting some pure bred females. During one month 43 pure bred bulls were placed in the county and 38 of these went to men who never before owned a pure bred. HOW ABOUT YOUR COUNTY? What are you doing to increase the number of pure bred bulls in your county? Why not sell that scrub, if you have one, and get a pure bred in his place while beef is high? If you are a grade herd owner why not sell those grade bull calves for veal or beef. Don't le-nhem be used for breeders. If you are a breeder why not start something right at homeI Write the secretary of your local breeders' association about it. Get in touch with your county agent and help him in his pure bred bull drive. Write the Wisconsin Live Stock Breeders' Association, Madi- son, for an outline of the state wide pure bred bull campaign. BOOST BETTER BULLS. i
