cupatlon, announces a remarkable
growth and expansion in his co
operative business since its organ
ization ia 1918. j
Shows Big Growth
In 1918; Mr. Needham and his
wife came to Salem from Fresno.
California, where they had been
engaged in chicken ranching. Af
ter, a. close survey of local and
state producing . and marketing
conditions. Mr. Needham decided
to establish a day-old chick busi
ness in Salem. The first year he
sold 15,000 chicks; the next year
25.000; the next year 100,000;
and last year over 190,000 day-old
chicks were shipped throughout
the northwest by the organization.
Mr. Needham ia very enthusiastic
about his work, and predicts an
other large increase in volume of
business for the coming year,
(J - Organization Unique'
The plan of operation of the or
ganization is unique in that Mr.
Needham does not operate any of
the incubators. There are 35 poul
trymen. all living within a few
miles of Salem, who are interested
in the- enterprise.? These poultry
men have their own incubators,
and have contracted to sell their
products to Mr. Needham, who in
Uurn sells them to the trade. Thus
it is possible fori the poultry men
to find a ready and fairly stable
market for their I chicks, and Mr.
Needham can devote his whole
time - to investigation of market
conditions and shipment of orders.
.. Shopments Go East and South
The chicks are usually shipped
to some customer within an hour
after they are received by Mr.
Needham, the supply very often
falling short of the demand. Ship
ments are made east as ar as
Montana, and south into Arizonfa.
The bulk of the shipments, how
ever, are to points in Oregon, Ida
ho. Washington. California and
Many Varieties Sold
Mr. Needham pays from 12 to
18 cents each for day-old chicks.
He sells White Leghorns at 1140
per thousand, and - Rhode Island
Reds, or Barred Plymouth Rocks
at $200 per thousand. Besides
the varieties mentioned, the orga
nization handles White Plymouth
Rocks. Anconas, Black Minorcas,
