Steed’s Dairy from Past to Present
It was the precipice of the Depression Era, and John Steed Sr. was a farmer with sharecroppers in Lincoln County. Anticipating that the price of cotton would soon skyrocket, Steed bought all the cotton from his sharecroppers before harvest. But, in 1929 the Depression hit, and the price of cotton fell from 18 cents a pound to six cents a pound. Cotton prices would be slow to recover in the following years.
