As a first step toward promoting
the duiry business in Malheur coun
ty, comes the announcement this week

orders for two hundred and thirty
calves before he left here and states
that others will purchase calves later.
The scheme is to buy calves about
ten days old, when they can be pur
chased for an average price of 8.00
The move is co-operative among the
farmers, and the i Xon&es of bring
ing the calves will be prorated.
If the scheme is found to be sat
isfactory, and the first lot of calves
arrive 0. K., it is very probable that
more shipments will be made. The

willingness to udvance money to re
sponsible farmers with which to pur
chase calves, and will assist in any
manner possible, the duiry move.
