FARM BUSINESS
Describes late 1800s farms as not being able to market all their produce and livestock because much was used for feed for work animals.
LIVESTOCK
Most farmers then raised hogs and used much of their corn crop for feed; The marketed most of the hogs but butchered some for family use in the winter. Most farmers kept kinds of poultry fenced or loose; those to be sold were fed more. Compares that to today, when many farmers keep no livestock or poultry.
CHILDHOOD WORK
Describes chores from the age of twelve. Milked cows and plowed some acres for oats for three days during a snowstorm.
