Livestock Bringing High Prices in Alta.
Farm and Ranch Review - March 8, 1912

From the accounts of quite a few sales in the province lately, we notice the remarkably good prices farmers are getting for all classes of livestock. At a sale held in Cardston Country recently, stock of all kinds went for a higher figure than might have been expected. A bunch of 19 brood sows brought from $20.00 up, one reaching $37. 00. Twenty-one half grown hogs brought $217. 00 for the lot. Of the cattle, one milk cow sold for over $70.00, the rest ranging well up to their value. Some good teams of horses were offered and the bidding on these was keen. Prices ranged well up in the hundreds, two teams bringing $560.00 and $540.00. Chickens as usual were in great demand and brought in most cases, $1.00 each. Three turkeys sold for $12.00.
