VALUE OF WHEAT. '
Good Profit May Be Made by Feeding
to Poultry at High Prices.
By James Dry4en, Poultryman. Oregon Agricul
tural College. Corvallia.
The prices of poultry and eggs fol
low closely the trend of wheat prices'
and of corn prices, the two staple poul
try foods in the United States. The
tendency is for poultry keepers to cur
tail the flock of poultry when prices
of food are high, and to increase the
flock when the prices of food are low.
When the grain prices riso more poul
try are sent to market, and later on
there is a scarcity of both poultry and
The question for the poultryman and
the farmer to consider in this connec
tion is, at what prices of grain does
it pay the farmer to market the grain
rather than feed it to the poultry, for
the business of the farmer is to get the
most out t)f the soil, whether it be in
raw or concentrated products. It is a
fine point to determine just where the
profit in feeding poultry as well as
other livestock disappears in the up
ward tendency of tho price of grain;
in other woTd's, at what point is there
a parting of the ways between a profit
and a lossf
The general tendency among farmers
is to sell the grain, rather than feed
it, long before the parting of the ways
has been reached, and it is a knowledge
of this fact that nssures the skillful
and persistent feeder of a profit. The
parting of tho ways comes very soon
to tho majority of feeders. One man
may be telling 'the exact truth when
lip nnrq that ho enn make no profit in
feeding seventy-five-cent wheat, nnd
another may be equally truthful when
ho says ho can make a profit in feed
ing one-dollar wheat. Tho difference
in the two men is a difference in skill
in feeding. With good stock nnd good
earo the skillful feeder will make' a
profit in feeding high-priced grain, but
no one can make a profit with poor
stock and poor care at any price for
The price of wheat is higher now
than it has been for probably ten or
fifteen years, nnd it is frequently said
that it is too high to feed to chickens,
Two or three things should be con
sidered in this connection. First, the
prices of poultry and eggs will rise if
many chickens are marketed, and the
farmer who keeps his chickens will
make as much profit as ho did when
the price of wheat was low. That is,
tho price of poultry products will ad
just itself to the prices of grain. Sec
ond, how much does it really cost to
feed a hen for a year! Does any one
In experiments made by the writer,
covering several years, in which every
ounce of food was - weighed, six pens
of Leghorn hens consumed during the
year 5G4 pounds wheat, 296 pounds
corn, 203 pounds oats, 112 pounds bran
nnd shorts and 235 pounds skim milk,
in addition to some animal food. The
cost of tho total food per fowl for the
year varied in different pens from 61
cents to 78 cents, and averaged G6
cents. The wheat was charged at 1
cent a pound, corn at 1 cents, oats
at a cent, skim milk at a fifth of a
cent and bran and shorts at three
fifths of a cent. The animal food cost
from 5 to 6 cents per fowl. The wheat
constituted nearly a half of the total
The hens laid an average of 344 eggs
per fowl, valued at $1.68 at local p -ices
for eggs. The prices were from 10
cents to 25 cents per dozen, much
lower than the prices are in Oregon
at tho present time. If wheat had been
worth, say, 90 cents and had been
charged for at that rate, and bran nt
1 cent a pound, the cost per fowl
would have been about 16 cents more,
or 80 cents instead of 66 cents. But
eggs arc also higher in price than they
Taking the monthly egg yield of tho
six pens of Leghorns and computing
the value of the eggs laid each month
at tho average wholesale prices of eggs
in' Portland during the past t'VO years,
tho results would be as follows:
laid. pcrdcz. Value.
November ... 40 35o $ 1.17
December ...122 35c 3.00
January 243 2(ie 4.40
February ....238 25o 4.90
March 336 20o 5.60
April 499 " Sue 8.30
May 428 18c 6.33
June 397 20o 6.62
July 384 20o 6.40
August 393 25c 8.20
September ...221 25c 4.60
October D7 30o 2.40
In place of eggs worth $1.68 per
fowl, if their value be computed at
present prices in Portland they would
be worth $2.58 per fowl. In other
words, on the basis of present prices,
food costing 80 cents when fed to hens
produces eggs worth $2.58. This is a
pretty good margin of profit in feed
ing UO cent wheat.
It may bo said that tho average
flock of hens does not lay 144 eggs per
low!. That is true. It is also true
that 144 eggs per fowl is not phenom
enal. The right kind of hens properly
attended should average 150 and well-
bred hens considerably more. The av
erage farm flock will not average 125,
probably not 100.
In these experiments all the food
eaten was paid for at market prices
and the cost averaged only 66 cents
per ben. The cost would have been
only 80 cents if tho wheat had cost 90
cents per bushel. The farmer, how
ever, who keeps fifty or a hundred
hens can do better than that, for on
the average farm that number of hens
may be kept largely on the waste pro
ducts or by-products of the farm. They
will find the animal food in the fields
in the shape of bugs, grasshoppers,
worms, etc., and' there will usually be
skim-milk or buttermilk. There need
therefore be no cost for animal food,
resulting in a saving of 8 to 10 cents
per fowl. The clover or grass they eat
will have little marketable value. The
destruction of grasshoppers in the
clover and grain fields and of bugs in
the orchards will, where these insects
are bad, offset a large part of the an
nual cost of food tor the fowls in
In experiments with larger breeds
the cost of feeding was greater. The
cost of feeding Plymouth Hocks aver
aged $1.15 per fowl and of Wyandottes
$i.U0. This extra cost is largely offset
when the fowls are marketed, the
larger breeds bringing more than the
In answer to an inquiry relative to
the way in which to tell the difference
between the edible mushroom and the
poisonous variety, the station replied:
"There are so many different species
of mushrooms, and they are so nearly
like the poisonous varieties, that it is
impossible for an inexperienced person
to detect the difference. Botanists do
not usually recognize any difference be
tween mushrooms and toadstools. The
best way is t learn to recognize cer
tain species S edible mushrooms, even
though the number bo few. A common
variety, known botanically as ' Agaricus
campestrias L.,' is not poisonous, and
by the following description you may
be able to recognize it:
"The stem is cylindrical, or tapers a
little toward the lower end. Near its
upper end is a sort of collar, usually
termed a 'ring,' which encircles it.
This is very delicate, white like the
stem, nnd of very tlnn, satiny texture.
The circular, expanded disk into which
the stem fits is called the 'cap.' The
surface is sometimes white, although
sometimes brownish, and usually cov
ered by a thin layer of delicate threads.
The flesh or inner portion is more com
pact, and is white also. Numerous thin
plates, or 'gills,' are on the under side
of the cap, which radiate from near the
stem to the margin of the cap. When
the plant is very young tho gills are
first white, but soon become a dark,
pink color, mid in age changes to dark
brown. Tho substance of the stem is
less compact at the center, but the stem
is not really hollow, though in some in
stances there are slight indications of
it. This mushroom will be found in
sod, where shade is plentiful.
"It is probable that the mushroom
responsible for a majority of the deaths
from eating this plant is the Amanita
phalloides. By a novice, it might eas
ily be taken for the Agaricus campes
tris. However, the former usually oc
curs in the woods, while the edible va
riety just described occurs in open
places. Professor G. F. Atkinson, of the
botany division of tho Cornell univer
sity agricultural experiment station, de
scribes the Amanita phalloides as fol
lows: "It is pure white, and possesses an
annulus or collar, but what is most
important the base of the stem rests in
a cup-like envelope called the volva.
. . . Tho pileus in this form is
smooth, yiscid to the touch, and pure
white,' as is also tho annulus, stem and
volva, though the latter is soiled by
particles of earth. The stem is nearly
cylindrical, tapering slightly from the
bulbous base. It is hollow; or stuffed
with cottony, mycelial threads. The
gills are .usually pure white, even in
age, and are nearly free from the stem.
When decaying the plant emits a very
disagreeable odor." From Washington
State college, Pullman.
An inquiry which will be of interest
to fruit growers of southwestern Wash
ington and northwestern Oregon was
referred to the department of horticul
ture. It follows:
"Kindly give me some advice con
cerning the growing of raspberries and
blackberries under the conditions found
in southwestern Washington. I would
be obliged to you for information con
cerning the growing of plums, cherries
and apples in this region."
Professor W. S. Thornber replied:
"You will have no difficulty in
growing raspberries and blackberries in
your part of tho country, providing you
use good judgment in selecting your va
rieties and in planting. If the low land
is well drained you had better plant
blackberries, but if the land is not well
drained you will have difficulty in
growing any form of small fruit there.
However, tho blackberry will come
nearer to growing in poorly drained land
than the raspberries will. In choosing
varieties of blackberries, use the Mam
moth for extra' early, the Snyder for
middlo early and the Evergreen for
late. Raspberries require a dryer and,
especially, well drained soil, and with
such conditions in your part of the
state you should be able to grow re
mnrkablft crops of them. The Cuthbert
is the standard for commercial work on
the west side; also the Antwerp, the
Superlative and the Marlboro are excel
lent berries for growth there.
"Plums will do well upon a ver
moist soil, and will stand a poorly
drained soil better thpn tho majority of
other fruits. The Peach, tho Yellow
Egg, tho Tragedy, the Willard, the Lom
bard and other varieties almost without
number will do well in the region you
refer to. Almost any cherry will sue:
coed there. Tho Royal Anns, the Bings,
the Lamberts and the May Dukes would
be good varieties to plant. The varie
ties of apples that will do especially
well 4hcro are more or less limited.
The Yellow Transparent, the Duchess,
the Oldenberg and tho Gravcnstcin for
early apples, and the Northern Spy,
Olympia, Baldwin, Grimes Golden and
possibly a few Rhode Island Greenings
for later varieties will do quite well.
Other, varieties, such as Ben Davis,
Gano and the Jonathan, do not seem to
be entirely adapted , to your part of
Washington." From Washington Stats
appeal to the Well-informed in every
walk of life and are essential to per
manent success and creditable stand
ing. Accordingly, it is not claimed
that Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna is the only remedy of known
value, but one of many reasons why
it is the best of personal and family
laxatives Is the fact that it cleanses,
sweetens and relieves the Internal
organs on which It acts without any
debilitating after effects and without
having to Increase the quantity from
Ume to time.
It acts pleasantly and naturally and
truly as a laxative, and its component
parts are known to and approved by
physicians, as it is free from all
objectionable substances. To get its
beneficial effects always purchase the
genuine manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co., only, and for
sale by all leading druggists.
