But marefoles, both likely of bulke and of bone: kepe such to bring coltes, let their gelding alone. 54. For gaining a trifle, sell neuer thy store: for chaunsing on worse, then thine owne were before. More larger of body, the better for brede: more forward of growing, the better they spede. 55. Thy sowes, great with fare, that come best for to rere: loke dayly thou seest them, and count them full dere. For that time, the losse of one fare of thy sowe: is greater, then losse of two calues of thy kowe. 56. A kow good of milk, big of bulke, hayle and sounde, is yerely for profet, as good as a pounde. And yet, by the yere haue I proued ere now: as good to the purse, is a sow as a kow. 57. Kepe one and kepe both, so thou maist if thou wilt: then all shall be saued, and nothing be spilt. Kepe two bease, and one sow, and Hue at thine ease: and no time for nede, bye thy meate but thou please. 58. Who both by his calues, and his lambes will be knowne: may well kill a neate, and a shepe of his owne. And he, that will rere vp a pig in his house: shall eate sweter bakon, and cheaper fed sowse. 59. But eate vp thy veale, pig and lambe being froth: and twise in a weeke, go to bed without broth. As that man that pas not, but sell away sell: shall neuer kepe good house, where euer he dwell. 60. Spende none but thyne owne, howsoeuer thou spende: nor haft not to god ward, for that he doth sende. Tythe truly for al thing, let pas of the rest: the iust man, his dealinges god prospereth best. 61. In January, husbandes that powcheth the grotes: will breake vp their lay, or be sowing of otes. Sow Jauiuer Otes, and lay them by thy wheate; in May, bye thy hay for thy cattel to eate. % fbmatii. 62. In Feuerell,
