Report heavy Demand for Badger Dairy Cows
The sales of Wisconsin cattle for 1923 to outside buyers have exceeded those of the previous year by more than 10,000 head.
G. C. Humphrey, animal husbandry department, University of Wisconsin, says that the buyers of Wisconsin cattle are more particular about the good grade cattle and are selecting the best individual producers money can get. The buyers demand certain standard condition in selecting their cattle.
1. They want good grade cattle, or well known breed and good producers.
2. Registered cattle with accredited production.
3. Cattle free from diseases.
4. Centralized markets, or organized communities where the selection is facilitated.
“Wisconsin farmers have established a reputation for raising reliable cattle of dependable breeds,” declares Humphrey.
