Description: "Farm labor often may be saved by using livestock to harvest and market part of the crops. By pasturing forage crops, and feeding down grain crops, much labor can be saved. Hay must be secured for winter feeding, and grain for home use and seed, but on many farms a considerable acreage may be turned directly into beef, pork and mutton. Pasturing off the crops also helps to maintain the fertility of the soil without extra labor or expense. The keeping of farm animals furnishes profitable work during the winter when other work is less pressing, and when they require most care. This distributes remunerative labor throughout the year more evenly than otherwise would be possible. This bulletin points out, largely by pictures of actual farm practices, some of the advantages of keeping livestock and of using the hogs, sheep, and beef cattle to help harvest and market farm crops." -- p. 2
