By MADALENE L. CALLIN
That a cold hard winter win
bring np the price of hay is un
questionably true but there is no
reason to fear that the price will
be prohibitive, according to ex
perts and buyers interviewed to
day No dairy or stockman can af
ford to pay $40 per ton for bay.
To do so wot Id mean a tremen
dous loss and most of them would
not do it. The hay crop this year
is average and there is no reason
to fear any great shortage.
The present price is averaging
$8 per ton, but judging from past
years it will no doubt go higher
but probably not over S2K per ton
at most. Of course any predic
tion as to market prices is in the
nature of a gamble but judging
from present conditions there is
no reason for great fear -on the
part of the farmer who will have
to buy hay. However, the one who
has hay to sell can expect a good
price but no gold mine.
. The clover seed situation is dif
ficult because there was an un
usually heavy crop in the east so
that the market is loaded. Four
teen cents seems to be the top
price in Salem.
According to dealers the fann
ers of the vicinity are doing well
this year since the sale of farm
machinery has been the greatest
in history. This Indicates .pros
perity in the rural districts. Much
of this prosperity may be attri
buted to the use of power machin
ery and improved farming methods.
