Butch Fowler Sells FFA Angus Steer To Farley & Hill Grocery and Market
Butch Fowler bought his FFA project, an Angus calf, October 8, 1960 for $70 from Floyd Flanagan when he weighed 350 pounds.
For 120 days Butch fed the calf a total of 900 pounds of F.F.A. feed which was composed of combined maize, cotton seed meal, syrup and salt. The calf gained a pound and one-half daily during this period, making a total gain of 186 pounds.
Butch sold the steer to L. C. Hill Monday, February 20, 1961. It weighed 536 pounds and brought 26c per pound.
