As soon as the dishes could I m ?
cleared away, Prof. Thomas Shaw
o f S t Paul, Minn., traveling
under the auspices of the Oregon
Electric and the Spokane, Port
land & Seattle railways, gave an
interesting und instructive address
on the dairy cow, her care and
benefits. The professor is a prac
tical farmer and stated that the
dairymen and farmers of the Wil
lamette valley had not much of
which to complain, compared to
farmers and dairymen in less fer
tile regions. He stated that the
most profitable feed for dairy
cows was green pasture and told
what, in his opinion, would be the
best grass<*8 for this section. He
is also enthusiastic concerning en
silage and alfalfa and believes
that alfalfa can lie grown profit

Stock Yards company, asked the
members of the association to get

he would take them through the

they should have. He asked that
the ladies come on the trip as well
as the men.
The last speaker was Prof. E.
B. Fitts of the O. A. C.. who
talked for an hour on the various
phases of dairying and farming.
