Never a sack of turnips in all years put together. I have always kept geese, ducks and fowls and bred all sorts of them and had eggs. At first I kept only two cows – they were milk cows – I kept increasing the number as my land was improved and now I have four milk cows, two strips and one calf which I am bringing up. Have sold milk and butter all my time. I have had half a score of sows at different times which have produced me litters of pigs – and I have had three litters in one year.
