Vo Send i:.lill)its to Salem and
A striking example of what a good
community spirit will accomplish for
the development of a district indus
try was afforded at the Oreg-on state
fair at halem last week in the out
standing livestock exhibits of Coos
and Tillamook counties. The splen
did dairy cattle exhibits of these two
counties easily dominated the entire
dairy cattle division and for numbers,
uniformity and merit comprised a
showing that, in the opinion of prom
inent livestock men who viewed these
entries, would have done credit to
any county anywhere in the United
Tillamook county, with 54 entries
of pure-bred dairy cattle, carried off
firist honors at Salem, 43 of the 54
entries winning premium money and
the Tillamook barn being awarded
the f'Z'y prize for being- the cleanest
on the grounds. A significant fea
ture of the Tillamook exhibit was the
fact that the bis barn was not filled
by a few large herds entered by
wealthy owners of famous show-place
18 Breeders Enter Stock.
The exhibit was composed of ani
mals entered by IS different breeders,
who brought the finest Guernseys,
Jerseys and Holsteins In Tillamook
county to the state fair in a special
train of five cars. Another car was
added to carry a mammoth exhibit of
Tillamook cheese, butter and other
products for the general county ex
hibit, which won first prize in Its
group of coast counties.
Through the. splendid team work
of the organized Tillamook county
breeders, adequate financial support
Is being given the livestock industry
by the county, and a fund of $1000
was contributed from the county
treasury for the purpose of sending
the livestock and agricultural exhibits
to the state fair. Rollie W. Watson,
prominent Holstein breeder and boost
er of the Tillamook country, was
placed in charge of the Tillamook
representation at the state fair, and
took with him a large delegation of
Tillamook enthusiasts to see that
proper attention was accorded to the
Tillamook wlna R 5.1.50.
The total of premium money won
by Tillamook was C653.60. with an
average of $14.11 for the Jersey en
tries. $12.11 for the Holsteins and
$10. OS for the Guernseys. Their win
nings included 12 first prizes, five
seconds, five thirds, five fourths and
Coos county, with an equally en
thusiastic community spirit, although
a smaller representation, took second
honors at the state fair, securing
second prize for its general agricul
tural exhibit and first honors of the
Holstein breed with the grand cham
pion Holstein sire. Matador Segis
Walker VI. belonging to Y. J. Simp
son, together with several other rib
bons and premiums.
Enthusiasm over the splendid de
velopment of the livestock industry
in these two southwestern Oregon
counties Is not confined to the male
sex. as thero are a number of live
stock experts among the Tillamook
and Coos county women, and the
girls of these two counties are as
active as the boys in the pure-bred
calf clubs of these sections.

STATE AGRICULTURE PROFITS
BY SCIENTISTS' KNOWLEDGE
Corn Industry of Oregon Develops Rapidly Under Systematic Breed
ing Strains Are Varied.
HOW Oregon agriculture has prof
ited by work of scientific plant
breeders, alluded to in a recent
Oregonian editorial, "Plant Wizards,"
is amplified by O. A. C. experiment
The important and rapidly develop
ing corn industry was advanced from
17.000 acres in 1909 to 71.000 In 1917
by the work of Minnesota university
plant breeders. The two leading
strains of dent corn Minnesota" 13
and "3 as bred by the Oregon Agri
cultural college farm crops depart
ment, are just the types needed for
Oregon production conditions. The 13
is a medium large, leafy plant, with a
good ear that normally develops to
a silage stage at the very time corn
silage should be put up just before
the first killing frost. It stands cli
matic conditions and makes a large
yield of excellent silage.
The 23 variety is a smaller strain
with a medium sized, early maturing
ear on a much smaller .stalk. It nor
mally ripens in time for harvest at
the opening of the rainy season. Al
though it matures well, it does not al
ways have time to dry out thoroughly
before the rains start.
Plant Breeding In Beneficial.
But even to a yet greater extent, it
is shown, Oregon is benefiting by the
plant breeding of her own scientists.
The wheat breeding work of O. E.
Stevens and the smut resistant work
of H. M. Woolman are some notable
Total wheat production in the Co
lumbia basin dry farm belt alone has
been increased yearly almost a half
million bushels by use of the Turkey
red strain bred by Mr. Stephens of
the Moro branch station. The entire
stock for this etrain was obtained
by multiplying the few selected heads
taken as parent stock. Introduction
and use of this strain on all lands to
which it is best adapted would add
900.000 bushels annually to the amount
of Oregon's wheat crop.
Mr. Stephens has also bred an Aus
tralian wheat, hard federation, that
outyielded the common spring wheats
of the district 30 per cent in a three
Breeding of this wheat has resulted
alike in gain to the state and to the
individual farmer. It costs no more
to plant and grow the heavy yielding
strains than the strains commonly
grown in these districts.
Large SavlngcM Are Reitnlt.
Breeding strains of these and other
wheats for smut resistence qualities
have resulted in large savings in
higher percentages of crop for mill
ing. H. M. Woolman and Mr.
Stephens have tested a thousand va
rieties of wheat to find smut resist
ance parent stock from which the de
sirable commercial varieties can be
bred by crossing and selection. Of
these some 10 or 15 have shown much
promise and one seems to be entirely
immune to smut.
The immune strain has withstood
the severest tests. Inoculation under
most favorable conditions for infec
tion have been attempted 10 times and
failed. It is hardly conceivable that

natural conditions can be more severe,
but some further tests are to be made.
Some other strains are so nearly
immune that there is little likelihood
of infection under field conditions.
In fact the smut problem for strains
of Turkey red most desirable for the
great dry farm region of the basin
district has been practically solved.
Smut resistance work conducted by
E. V. Gains at the Washington state
experiment station is equally fruitful.
Also the wheat bred at the same sta
tion by Dr. W. J. Spillman. which has
been developed and applied until the
amount and value of the Washington
crop are greatly increased.
Kanred Strain Prove Fertile.
The most significant increase in
wheat production from the work of
plant breeders was brought about by
use of the Kanred strain of Turkey
red, bred at the Kansas Agricultural
college by Herbert Roberts, professor
of botany, and later by Professor L. E.
Call, station agronomist. The aver
age increase in yield from Kanred
plantings is from 3 to 5 bushels an
acre. The annual wheat acreage in
Kansas is about 10 millions, most of
which is of the college station strain.
Not fewer than 25 million bushels are
added yearly to the world wheat sup
ply in Kansas alone because of Kan
red. The increased yield per aire aggre
gating this vast gain in total produc
tion is no greater than that produced
by the Moro-bred wheat. The Kan
red strain has been in use much
longer and applied to a much larger
area than the new Oregon strain,
which runs from 10 to 15 per cent
ahead of the selections commonly
grown in the district..

Why early plantings of smut-treated

by the plant pathologists of the Oreg-on

Smut spores are released in thresh

Disking stubble lands does not in
sure protection, either by burying the
spores too deep to bother or by giv
ing them enough moisture to germin
ate. Hence smut trouble even, with
treated grain may occur on disked
stubble lands as well as summer fal

termined by the amount of smutty
grain to the windward side of the
field. Eastern Oregon is more sub
ject to heavy smut showers than
parts further west.
The only way. at present known to
prevent trouble from soil infection
is either to plant on freshly plowed
lands or plant after the first rains
have started the spores usually
about six - weeks of rainy weather.
Treated grain sown on such lands is
likely to produce clean crops, unless
a new smut shower ensues. Danger
of smut infection is much less with
