Farmer John Stephens: Value of Stock
Farmer Stephens' statement of losses also shows the value of respective types of stock. The loss of lambs was almost inevitable, but the loss of two horses in consecutive years (1900-01) took a heavy toll on John's finances, especially with the loss of 'Bounce' in 1901.
His rough valuation for 1895 demonstrates how valuable the horses were in the year he first began farming on his own account.
