There will be a brisk demand for well developed draft horses at the close of the war if the prediction made by Dr. A. S. Alexander of the College of Agriculture, of the University of Wisconsin comes true.
“The warring nations,” he recently declared, “are rapidly depleting their stocks of work and breeding draft horses and may have to come to us for new supplies.”
This is the consensus of opinion among those best able to judge of the situation. But whether the predictions prove right or wrong, it is certain that a strong home demand for heavy work horses of the best type will arise and continue.
