i fJEED MORE COWS
Condensers Close Down Be
cause of Lack of Milk.
FARMERS SELLING HERDS
Hillsboro Board of Trade Is Aroused
to Seriousness of Situation and
Mass Meeting in Courthouse.
Brings Ont Big: Attendance.
HILLSBORO, Or., Oct. 30. (Special.)
The big dairymen's meeting at the court
house today taxed the capacity of the
Circuit Court room, and scores were un
able to secure seats. The occasion of the
meeting was the diminution of Washing
ton County's milk supply, and the fact
that many who have engaged in dairying
have been selling their herds this rail
owing, It is said by those so doing, to
the high prices for feed, and tle lack of
profit in the business.
H. H. Stuart, president of the Pacific
Coast Condensed Milk Company, wnicn
has condensers here and at Forest Grove,
took up the question as a result of a call
by the Hillsboro Board of Trade, occa
sioned by the fact that the condenser
closed down here early this month, and
will not resume unless the factory is fur
nished milk in larger quantities.
He "advocated putting in better strains
of milk cows and more producing of
green feed, which, in turn, means less
purchase of mill feed and a better profit
to cow men. He stated that as com
pared with two years ago the Forest
Grove condenser had received 600,000
pounds less milk in October, 1909, and that
If this decrease continued it would be
but a auesVon of time until the conden
ser at that place must close and this not
withstanding the fact his company is now
starting to build a factory at Whatcom,
Wash., and has more orders for cream
than can be filled.
Portland Creates Demand.
One great cause of the milk reduction
In the condenser supply is due to the in
creased demand for milk in Portland,
where the dairv disturbances has thrown
many dairies out of commission, coupled
also with the closing of many -dairies Dy
the high water. The Portland buyers
have canvassed east Washington County
nnd offered what is deemed a better price
for cream than that paid by the con
densers, ar.d this leaves the dairymen
their skimmed milk, which is an Import
ant factor in raising of calves and swine.
Dr. James Wlthycombe, of the Corvallis
Agricultural College, addressed the audi
ence on the topic of dairying, ' and dwelt
upon the fact that through the dairy in
terests Washington County had jumped
from eighth to first place in production;
had rejuvenated the soil by fertilization
incident to keeping large herds of cows,
and that today the farmer is much better
off than under the old regime of hay,
grain and vegetables.
Home Market to Be Developed.
The Hillsboro condenser will remain
closed until the milk supply is materially
increased, and the Board of Trade will
make an endeavor to interest farmers in
sending their product here Instead of to
an outside market.
