T. J. Buford, a farmer of this community, who has made a success of turkey and goat raising, says he owes his success to advertising. Mr. Buford is making a good living on land that is as sandy as any Red River sand bar, just from his turkeys and goats. When he purchased the land, it was covered with briars and brush, so he fenced it with high goat and chicken wire and put the goats to clearing. They killed all the briars and underbrush and he cut the larger trees with an axe and let the goats eat the leaves and twigs. This land was then planted in peas, which provided food for the turkeys, thus making all work and pay. The goats that did the clearing were Angora, but he now had turned his attention to raising milk goats.
