How will you handle your grain this year? Bulk Grain is here!
Southern Idaho built approximately 50 elevators, Eastern Washington
and Oregon about 50 last year! it ia authoritively stated that 150
elevators will be built in the Columbia river basin thia year.
We are now planning and building elevators in Eastern Wash
ington and Oregon. Portland pland hew million bushel elevators!
Astoria will double capacity of elevator. Seattle recently com
pleted million bushel elevators at docks. Spokane farmers' meeting
of last year almost unanimously voted for bulk grain. Oregon Agri
cultural College meeting endorses bulk grain system. Every Saturday
brings the word of some farmers meeting to adopt bulk grain handling.
At Pendleton meeting, N. B. Atkinson of Wasco County, Ore . told of
farmers building elevators and paying for them With sack money the!
BULK GRAIN IS HERJ
MAKE MONEY IN 1917:
Sacks are out of, date. Hand
ing in bulk saves 2c to 3e per
bushel. And this saving its
made above the cost of install-
ing granaries (as shown above)
Bulk handling insures getting
all the profit, and reduces the'
labor very materially.
Act now Come in today
ook over our many designs-
Ask how you can equip your
farm for handling bulk grain-
By using the money you would
pay for sweks for one year
After that you save money
