Polk County Farmers Con
sider Cost Reduction,
' - Methods: . '
DALLAS, Feb. 24 Dairymen
f Polk cour.tr are firing serious
dunslderatio& to the cost of pro
duction of butterfat la competi
tion with the dairymen of the Ir
rigated sections and the crass
country of the ; coast ; counties.
. Batterfat Is produced - several
cents a pound cheaper ta these
. sections according to the records
from (51 dairy farms la these
different sections. .- c i
Alfalfa prorldes the : principal
feed when batter fat Is produced
the cheapest and local dairymen
can cut off several cents a pound
by a more complete use of alfalfa
hay, and pasture. More than 2.-00-0
acres are now under cultiva
tion la Polk county, aecof dins to
, records la the office of the coun
ty ajen. and Mr. Bees: states that
this should bo Increased to' some
place between six and-10 thou
sand aeres,TTr three times the
. present acreage.
, Preliminary figures -on the cost
of. producing a pound of putter
fat havealready been released and
a further, study Is under way to
corer a three year period. Twenty-three
Polk , county dairymen
are included in the Hat-
Figures released indicate that
, the average production of these
dairy farms is well above 250
pounds of butterfat. It also shows
that the bulk of the feed bill
for eastern Oregon dairymen Is
tori alfalfa hay, and that th'elr
- cows are producing almost as
well as those of the Willamette
valley that receive much- more
grain. This point alone should be
an incentive to greater use of al
faifa. ...... . ,
Preparation for the seeding of
alfalfa should start dov, - by
plowing the ground at once, if it
has not been plowed. Alfalfa
should be sown on a fine, firm
, seed bed during the first part of
... May with a few exceptions. - Mr.
Beck has made a considerable
study of alfalfa and la of the
opinion that the acreage should
double or treble Itself within the
next year or two.
