A string of Saanan kids belonging to E. fi. Woods, 700 North

of this type, can be as well made
from the milk of goats; and only
Roqueforf experts can tell "the
sheep milk cheese and the Koat
milk cheese apart If indeed even
experts can distinguish the differ
ence. Roquefort cheese does not need
to be advertised. It is one of the
eldest cheeses known. It was the
favorite dish of the Gauls in their
ceremonial feast. In the early cen
turies of our era. After the con
quest of Caesar, who wrote that
"all Gaul Is divided into three
parts." It was Introduced in Rome,
where it found great favor. Pliny,
the Elder, refers to Jt In his book
on Natural History.
The genuine article is' made
mostly in the department of Avey.
ron. France, and within a radius
of 100' miles .of the town of
Roquefort, where there are caves
of a peculiar limestone forma
tion, in which the cheese is cured.
Some of Ihem have been used
since the dawn of history, and
others of the caves have been
formed artificially in later and
In recent times.
The climatic conditions here in
the Salem district are about like
those of the southwestern part
of P'rance, and the formation of
the caves for the curing of the
cheese could be easily accomplish
ed here; perhaps improved upon.
Roquefort is the headquarters
of the industry, and controls the
world Fupply. Ewes have been
bred there for centuries for milk

to 200 pounds of milk in a period

Goats Great Producers
Goatg are the greate! produc
ers of milk of all animals, in pro
portion to Ihelr size and the
amount of feed consumed.
Gretel. a Tosgehburg (or Tog
gen berg) doe, bred by Winthrop
Howland and owned by the Cali
fornia. Experiment Station, has a
record of 2941.5 pounds of milk
in 365 days, or 24 times her body
But Gretel has since been much
exceeded in milk production by
"Polly-Mac," owned by J. B. Mc
Laughlin of California. She has
produced 4350 pounds of milk in
one year, and her owner has re
fused $5000 Tor her, made by
George F. Etiel of Highland Mills,
New York. And bo it goes. As
with pure bred cows, the record
of today is exceeded by another
Joybcll. owned by R. R. Glahn
of Los Angeles, has a record of
over seven quarts a day.
Martha Washington, a regis
tered Toggenburg owned by Mich
ael Montchalin of Multnomah
county, Oregon, gave seven quarts
of milk daily In a certified test in
June. 1919, and Mr. Montchalin
has since exceeded that record
with a young Toggenburg doe
He is from France, and he makes
Roquefort cheese from the milk
of his goats.
Leading goat breeders of Ore
-on and California are dreaming
of a goat that will give 10 and
U quarts of milk daily; Jnst as
Oregon Jersey breeders are look
ing forward to the 1200-pound
butt erf at cow.
So quantity production of
Roquefort cheere ia a possibility
in the Salem district. " The pio
neers in the industry will confer
?reat favors upon their fellow
men. and especially on their
neighbors and. with intelligent
and good jnanagement, will make
Feeding th Goats
uoats.eat anything wnw-n a
cow or sheep will eat. and in ad
dition feed upon many things
which they reject. 1L has been
said that a cow will, live where
si norse cannot, a sneep wnere a
cow cannot, and a goat where all
the others would fail to exist-
But the goat's food must be
clean. They will not eat an ap
pie to which human lips have
been touched. They will reject
middlings over which a rat has
merely walked. But they exce
all other animals in requiring less
expensive and concentrated feed
and in converting into nutritious
milk and mutton even worthless
and obnoxious weeds and brush
They like all kinds of vegetables
and green stuff that grow in the
garden, and parings , and trim
minga of vegetables and fruits
They are naturally more brows
ers than grazers, but wiLl do very
well on grass pasture alone, es
pecially if clover, alfalfa or weeds
constitute a part. They will eat
most weeds and are very fond of
many. The hills and mountains
of Oregon are natural goat pas
ture. They will do well even
on a variety of grain and dry
feeds exclusively, though better
with some green feed. They are
natural pets and delight to be
with men and women and child
ren. The Milking Time
Most goat keepers milk in a
milking stand a little frame
raised about two feet from the
ground for convenience. The
goat soon learns, and jumps eag
erly into plate vhen her turn
comes to be milked. Even the
children can milk them.. They
are easily milked. Most milkers
milk a goat from the side. Like
a cow. "
Milk goat breeding opens a
new field tor women; and In Cal
ifornia there are many women
engaged and engaging In the in
dustry. Some in Oregon already,
too. , '
Hh.h a Long History:
There is probably no animal
that has been : kept longer or
more continuously in domesticity
than the goat, and none that has
administered more faithfully to
the wants, to the health, to the
comfort, and to the happiness and
pleasure of man.
The goats of Jacob and Laban
are referred to in the book oi
Genesis. The goat is referred, to
many times throughout the Bible.
The milk with which the land of
the Judean hills flowed must
have been chiefly the product of
In -the Old Testament days the
goat ministered not only to the
physical needs of man in the
form of meat, milk and clothing,
but to his spiritual wants as well.
The kids and goats from the
flocks contributed toward the
burnt offerings and sacrifices.
The goat is classified in the Bible
as one - of the clean beasts and
fit- for food. "These are the beasts
which ye shall eat: the ox. the
sheep, and the goat, the hart. and.
the roebuck. snd the fallow deer,
and the wild goat," etc. Deuter
Who Will be Pioneers.
There are thousands of farm
ers in the Salem district, any one
whom, having the vision, may
be a great pioneer in commencing
the manufacturing on a commer
cial scale of Roquefort cheese.
Practically all he needs Is a
man rrom. r ranee, or a tamuy
from France, to show' him how
And ' perhaps the help of the

not be needed. Practically no
capital, to start with. But once
established, the industry could
sustain the investment of large
capital, though it could be made
to grow from securing the-cooper-

See the vision?
It is a vision of Salem as the
Roquefort of the United States,
reaping rich rewards annually for
all the years of the future. Na

and the climate in perfection for
every branch of the industry.

This District Is the Natural Home of the Goat, and Our
People Should Takej Advantage of the Present Milk
Goat Boom, and Then Should Go Into the Making
of Roquefort Cheese and Other Cheese of That Type.
When The Statesman Salem
Slogan ,and Pep and Progress ed
itor takes up the question of goats
he Is embarrassed by the: bigness
of the subject, and of the field
and prospective field;. Many whole
newspapers could-be devoted :j to
goats; many whole books, anl
still there would be more to say
something new every day T
And the fact is that there are
two branches of the goat Industry
two main branches, and .many
subsidiary divisions. The two
main branches comprise the An
goras of high and low degree, and
the milk goats of a number j of
different breeds. ; ! ...
Most of the readers of.,, The
Statesman know that Salem Is the
center of the largest purebred An-
goragoat industry in -this or any
other country; that this is the pi
oneer mohair market from first
hands in the Northwest; that
practically all tho Jong haired
goat skins going into the chaps
(chaparajos: chapaharos) of all
North America ate. tanned and
prepared in $aleni; that this ' Is
the natural home of the Angora
goat more so than even Asi
Minor, the original home of the
Angora; that there are perhaps
50,060- Angora goats of the purest
strains In the 'world for such a
number within a radius of 50 to
100 miles of Salem, and that there
is vast room here for -the expan
sion of the Angora goat Industry.
But the writer has in hand for
the present Issue! principally the
exploitation of the milk goat in
dustry for Oregon,: and more es
pecially for western Oregon, and
for the Salem district where there
should be one hundred milk goats
for every one now found here
Though Oregon I now has per
haps more than 3000 milk goats
and is further advanced in their
breeding than any other state in
this country, with the exception
of California. Portland has a
large number of milk goat dairies.
and Salem has several, besides
many individuals about the homes
in the city, in the suburbi, and
thouguout the country dis
tricts and there are probably as
many goats in Polk county as
there are in Marion; especially
around Fall3 City and in the Dal
Room for Many More i
If the reader will study the ar
ticle published in this issue copied
