ONE OF THE oldest and largest of the Pacific Coast poultry and pet stock magazines, a recognized leader in its
class in the West, is the Northwest Poultry Journal, which was established in Salem, the Oregon state capital
city, more than 26 years ago. i. j
It contains from 40 to 60 pages each month and is well edited, printed and nicely illustrated. Among its regular
writers are some of the leading poultry judges, poultry specialists and most successful breeders of the Northwest.
It has always borne the reputation of being reliable and progressive, a fact much appreciated by its management and
a reputation it hopes to maintain throughout the succeeding years.
No line of poultry and pet stock breeding is neglected or overlooked in its columns. It has a fine and ably
edited rabbit department and interesting articles are published from time to time on turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea
fowl and pigeons, as well as cavies and other pet stock.
This publication enjoys a wide circulation, its claim of being read by 90 per cent of the poultrymen and pet
stock raisers of the Pacific Northwest being no idle boast, and its subscription list is increasing very rapidly.
Advertisers find its columns bring them quick and excellent returns as the very complimentary and unsolicited
testimonials published in its columns every month are conclusive evidence or proof.
Not only are its columns devoted to fancy and standard-bred poultry, but it is a tireless booster for the com
mercial poultryman, devoting more space than any other poultry magazine in the country to the various egg-laying
competitions, farm poultry demonstrations, poultry culling demonstrations and poultry experiment reports from the
government and various agricultural colleges,! as well as reports of the various poultry shows and smaller exhibits.
A little spice and pep is added through its much commented upon wit and humor page.
j i :
These facts, together with its low subscription price (75 cents per year) has given this poultry magazine won
derful prestige throughout the Pacific Northwest, in which vast territory it wields no little influence among the
poultrymen and is deservedly popular. . .
