The Cattleman's Pages of History
We have now started the 104th year of publication of The Cattleman magazine. Each month, we take a few minutes to look back in history to find the interests of cattle raisers at the time. We have reprinted the text of these items as they appeared in the issue. Any additional comments from the editor appear in brackets.
“I urge every patriotic cattleman in the Southwest to unite with us at Dallas, Texas, March 19, 20 and 21, in planning for the accomplishment of the task before us.”
➤ Everyone was urged to do their part in the war effort. Knowing that American and Allied troops needed food and supplies, meatless and wheatless days were urged on the American people. In the Livestock Outlook column, cattlemen were told that “Now, the meatless and wheatless days do not merely save meat and wheat. They are the symbols of general saving. They are a pledge on the part of the people to economize all along the line to help in the war. They make people think about the duty of sacrifice. They teach and preach patriotism. To abandon these days of doing without would have a very bad moral effect on the whole people. I am sure the farmers as a class will never ask the Government to do that.”
