Rutherfordton, N.C., June 16—The coming week will see in this county progressive steps advanced in the dairy industry. County Agent F.E. Patton was gratified by the large attendance at the county-wide dairy meeting held last Friday, and feels that worth-while results will follow.
With a steadily increasing influx of people in this section, numbers of whom are purchasing property and seeking homes in and near the new townsite of Lake Lure, many of the leading farmers of this section, as well as others from greater distances, are already laying plans for extensive dairy operations to supply milk and butter to the steadily increasing number of people who are locating in this region.
Officers were elected at the meeting last week, and they will be active up to and through the extensive campaign of next week in promoting interest in the question of “better sires. Purebred livestock means much to the farmers of this community. Scrub stock is a curse to any community,” said one of the officers elected at the recent meeting.
