Status of Saskatchewan Livestock Industry
In reviewing the live-stock situation, not withstanding its difficulties there is reason for continued hope and confidence in its future for Saskatchewan. The animal husbandry man is putting his work into a permanent system of agriculture over a longer period than the exclusive grain-grower. His aim is to maintain the fertility of the soil of which he is a steward for the time in which he holds possession and there is interest and variety in the management of such a big problem. Just how to maintain the right balance between grain and livestock on the typical prairie farm is a question worth considering carefully at the present time and it is to be hoped that it will receive the consideration by our farmers that such an important economic problem deserves.
