SHEEP AND WOOL
This Impression is Brought
Back by Local Man Who At
tended National Ram Sale.
... , i
YEARLING BREEDING EWES
CAN SCARCELY BE BOUGHT
Prices of Eight .Dollars Per
Hefd Offered in Vain to Se
cure Young Range Ewes.
Condition in the gheep and wool
business are improving, and the spirit
of breeder is decidedly optimistic.
Thia is the Impression that has heea
brought back to Pendleton by Mac
Hoke who attended the national rani
sale which was held the first part of
the week at Rait Lake City.
Yearling breeding ewes can hardly
be bought, the reports from breeders
who were in attendance at the sale
show, and prices of 1 8 a head are be
ing offered In vain to secure good
young range ewes. The price on wool
have been edging upward during the
Past few weeks, and breeders are stay-
'ng in the business and planning where
possible to increase their holdings.
One report was made at the auction
of the sale recently by the Columbia
r.HNln Wou! Warehousa C.n. of 2,008,.
000 pounds of wool. The coarse stuff
i ranged from 13 cents upward, and the
top on the fine wool sold was 22 V
cents. . '
An Indication of the demand for
yuttn breeding ewes is shown In th
ial which whs attempted recently by
the Wood Livestock Co. This com
pany, wh'cb. fs one .of the largest in
the West, a few days since made an
offer of 18 the head for 15,700 yearl
ing range ewes to J. E. Clinton, a
Koise banker. The offer was held
open while Clinton sent out scouts to
see if he could replace the ewes in
Oregon or Montana at J6 or $7 a head.
When his scouts wired him that this
Was impossible and that good stuff
i could not be bought at all, the offer of
the Wood Livestock Co. was turned
Tho company, of .which Fran!:
Hagenbarth is preJent haa a half
million dollars to invest in breeding
stock, and their plans have been made
to breed 60,000 head of ewes this fall.
The auction reflected the present
conditions in the sheep business, ac
cording to Hoke. Prices were not o
high as formerly, but good stuff moved
freely at fair prices. Monarch, a fam
ous stud ram of the Butterfield com
pany, topped the sale when the gov
ernment paid J3.000 for him. Thl is.
the best price that has been paid for
one ram since 1918. .
