Reaction From the Overdone Business
of Last Year Is Unnecessary.
J. H. Owlnn states that moro sheep'
raisers could have profitably engaged
this year In tho business of fatten
ing sheep for tho coast market than
did so erigage. Tho reaction this
year from the overdone business
last year In fattening sheep in this
county wa3 really greater than tho
situation warranted. Tho business
was overdone last year as a result
of the unusual money made two years
ago In this industry.
Ho states that many moro sheep
men than fattened sheep this year in
this county could have engaged in
tho business profitably rather than to
let such a largo number of Blockers
go to tho Yakima country, whero tho
reed is being exhausted, and which
Io bringing great confusion to many
sheepmen over there. Mr. Gwinn be
lieves the prospects are oxcellent for
an advance in tho price of wool over
last year of from ono cent to a cent
and a half.
