MUCH NONEY MADE
IN RAISING GOATS
Douglas County Farmers are Dis
covering There is Good Money
In Angora Goats
Upon several occasions the Plaindeal-
er has been impressed with the fact
that there is good money for the farmers
in Douglas county in raising Angora
goats. This impression has just been
strengthened by the knowledge that one
farmer, this week, disposed of 400 head
at the price of 15 per head netting him
a very neat sum for what has cost him
comparatively little time or trouble.
The Angora goat raising industry does
not date so very far ba k, in the United
States, and still leas in Oregon. The
first pair was brought in Lncle Mmf
domain by Dr. Jas. B. lavis, who was
the C. S. Minister to Turkey and to
whom the 8ultan presented the animals
as a token of bis appreciation if services
rendered bv that gentleman. J-ome
time later Wm. Lsndrum. now of Ttxas.
but then ot California, brought a big
flock into Oregon and from that time to
this the industry of raisin? Angora goats
in Oregon has been steadily on the in
crease. While some other warmer cli
mates seem to be better for propagating
the animals, vet in Oregon is to be
grown the finest clip to be found any
where. And there is good money in the
wool alone. Not many years ago the
mills did not have the machinery for
handling this production. But today
they cannot get enough of the mohair.
In fact one New York manufacturer of
fers from $2 to $5 per pound for the woo
which measures from 12 to 16 inches in
length. The animals sell readily for o
apiece and are fonnd to be more profita
ble tnan any other .stock raieed by the
farmer. Each goat will shear out about
$1. As compared to sheep they aie
away in the lead. In fact it is an unde
niable fact that sheep raising in Oregon
is on the wane, while Angora goats are
becoming more popular right along
Sheep will tackle a field of grain and
never leave it untii thev have eaten all
the grass and have digged np the roots
Goats wi 1 bro se upon the green stuff
until it becomes a little tough, which is
the case in dry weather, then they will
go after the brash and exist all the sea
son upon that. At I be end of the sea
son it will be found that they have con
verted the brush into manure, enriching
the land, besides clearing the ground,
which, in many instances, would have
cost big money to accomplish. As be
fore intimated, the climatic conditions
here in Oregon seem to be such as to
make this the ideal spot for raising An
gora goats, and it does not take fancy
land to do it either, for the hill land,
the cheaper realty, is really preferable,
and the animals will clear and enrich
the land, while doing ho harm whatever
But tbe industry is as yet in its infan
cy. The ways in which the wool can be
ntilized are being greatly increase i and
the outlook for tbe industry is exceed
ingly encouraging. At present manu
facturers are making it up into dresses
for the ladies, and they have invented a
way in which they imitate tbe fur-bearing
animals to such an extent that the
imitation is hardly discernible. Great
quantities of tbe wool are used im mak
ing plushes for the railway cars, aud
there are many other ways in which tbe
wool is being utilized.
When it comes to comparing the An
gora goats m ith sheep in the market, the
former has the better of the comparison.
Sheep, which are so hard on the ground,
only bring three dollars per head, a
price which is regarded as exceptionally
good for them, whereas Angora goats
readily bring five dollars apiece, and
they have not hnrt the crop of grain, al
lowing it to seed, while they eat the un
derbrush and thus render valuable ser
vice in clearing off tbe land.
That the industry of growing Angora
goats in Douglas county is to become
one of tbe coming valuable resources of
this favored locality, there can be not
the slightest doubt, for the teturns
have already clearly demonstrated that
there is big money in it.
deed, we could dispose of much m re, '
but jnst now we find trouble in getting i
enough cream. The plant is finely i
equipped and we could easily turn out j
one thousand powswis jer day, if only we
could get the cream. We get cream '
from many outside points, including j
Oakland, lrain, Kiddie, Wilbur and :
Yoncnlla. If the farm' rs would test i
their own milk it would be just what
we would like, for we rind that the ones
who Oo th e are always better pleated
with our tecting. 1 tell you there is
nothing which will pay the farmers
better, for the amount of money in
vested, than dairying. If they will only
take proper care of them and milk them
regularly, cows are a splendid invest
When it comes to making butter at
home, it seems as though many penons
do not get at it in the right manner.
In-lead of depending upon tasting the
cream to see) ii the butter is coming, let
the farmer get a tester and then he will
knov when, the milk is at the right
temperature for making butter. The old
idea of pouring in hot water to make the
butter BMW is all a mistake. Some
times this plan works, but in the ma
jority of cases it does not. The best
plan, if one wants to hurry the butter.
is- to set the churn in a vessel containing
warm water and . not put warm water
into the milk. It is a pxjr policy to
keep the milk too long. Back east we
got it every day but here it is alright t3
send it in every other day. The main
thine is for the farmers to keep cream
in good condition and then we will be
enabled to turn out the very best L utter
to be had anywhere "
Mr. Willet thinks that there is a great
future for the dairving industry in
Douglas county and he hopes that the
farmers will do all they can to advance
