We at J. L. Hoffman are small businessmen like
yourself and know how hard it is to get ahead in
today’s world of high prices, uncertain weather and
inadequate farm prices.
Like the large companies . . .
1. High freight costs built into our prices—
because we’re local
2. Fancy brochures and shiny cars which
you pay for in higher prices
3. Computers that treat you like a statistic
instead of a valued friend
4. High overheads
Try us. We’re local. We care.
For us value for money is a promise not a slogan.

high hurdles

That’s right, they jump
hurdles And they do it as
smoothly as if they were
preparing for the Olympics
instead of the Farm Show
Sarah, a nine year
member of the
beef and sheep club said
she’s been doing it ever since
she started 4-H
‘‘lt develops their hind
quarters as well as gives
them exercise,” Sarah said
‘‘lt firms them up and makes
them look better The judges
look for this firmness on the
sheep ”
“It’s my last year so I
would really like to do well at
Farm Show,” she said
And just what makes a
person go through a week of
work - scrubbing animals,
showing them, hoping for the
best and sometimes coming
out the worst’
“It’s the excitement,”
Sarah beams “You woik
with these animals all year
round and by the time Farm
Show comes you want to
show them and let everyone
see what you’ve done Of
course you hope for the best
for your animal, but you’re
proud even if you come in
last It’s just the feeling you
get in the competition that
keeps you going ’
And for hundreds of 4-
H’ers this week, this feeling
may be just the thing they'll
need to keep them going and
doing their best But with or
without the feeling, most of
them would agree that’s it’s
just the plain, ol’ good time
at Farm Show that keeps
them coming back DK
