Not Raising Hog Business
My father-in-law used to tell a story about getting into the “not raising hog business.” He told how the government would pay a farmer for not raising hogs. Someone wrote and asked, “What are the best kinds of hogs NOT to raise and what is the best kind of farm NOT to raise hogs on?” Then he wrote “If I can get $1000 for Not raising 50 hogs, could I get $2000 for not raising 100 hogs?” He stated, “He was planning to operate on a small scale at first, holding himself down to about 4,000 hogs. I want to get started as soon as possible...as this seems to be a good time for NOT raising hogs. Please let me hear from you soon.” Signed - Yours very truly, I. M. Broke. P.S. Can I raise 10 or 12 hogs on the side, to eat, while I’m in the “not raising hogs” business?” (By Author & Missionary Lou Nicholes).
