Ill EJ REPORT
Hay Shows Decline Over
1928; Apples Given Be
low State Average.
(United States Department of Agri
culture and Oregon Agricultural Col
lege co-operative report.)
All Oregon winter sown grain
crops except barley and all late
spring crops have shown an appre
ciable improvement over the state
generally according to the regular
August first report of Paul G. New
man in charge of the Federal State
Cooperative Crop Reporting srevice.
Increase in the August first estim
ates are reported in the case of win
ter wheat, corn, oats, rye, potatoes,
apples, pears and hops. Winter
wheat shows the greatest actual in
crease, with the August estimate
placed at 19,712.000 bushels com
pared to the July estimate of 18,
507,000 bushels. The present estim
ate is almost up to that of a year
The Oregon corn crop is now es
timated at 2,762,000 bushels compar
ed to 2,595,000 a month ago. An
increase of 736,000 bushels in the
oats estimate boosts the August
forecast to 10,881,000 bushels. Ore
gon potato production shows an in
crease over a month ago and is now
estimated at 5.316,000 bushels com
pared to 6.240,000 bushels last year.
Rye and all of the fruit crops re
ported show increases in production
as well. The remainder of the prin
cipal Oregon crops have dropped
from a month ago.
All hay crops, spring wheat and
barley have deteriorated since July
1. The drop in the case of hay is
the most serious and is causing the
most concern as present Indications
point to a possible winter feed
shortage in some sections which
may be serious depending entirely
upon the severity of the winter.
Oregon corn production of 2,762,
000 bushels compares to the Ave
year average of 2,347,000 bushels.
The average yield of 22 bushels for
winter wheat gives an estimated
production of 19,712,000 bushels
compared to a five year average of
16,478,000 bushels. Spring wheat
production decreased during July
to 2,554,000 bushels from 2,923,000
bushels last month and compares
to the five year average production
of 3,230,000 bushels. The Oregon
oats crop of 10,881,000 bushels is
considerably larger than the five
year average of 9.657,000 bushels.
Barley production though less than
a month ago is 3,867,000 bushels
compared to 2,632,000 bushels the
average of the last five years. Ore
gon rye yield is placed at 17.5 bush
els per acre compared to a five year

home on iea or In air. It is capable oi carrying One hundred paitcngcrt
and members of crew. Equipped wjtff twelve motor, it baa wing spread
nf one hundred and fifty feet
average of 13.6 bushels. This year's
production of 140,000 bushels is but
little over half the average produc
tion of the last five years. Oregon
potato production showed an in
crease of 181.000 bushels to 5,316,000
bushels which compares to a five
year average of 4,584,000 bushels.
All tame hay production is estim
ated at 1,785,000 tons compared to
2,041,000 tons last year and the aver
age of the last five years of 1,863,
000 tons. All varieties of tame hay
show a corresponding reduction in
the state average production. The
alfalfa production estimate of 710,
000 tons compares to 777,000 tons a
year ago and the five year average
of 731,000 tons. All clover and tim
othy production whether mixed or
unmixed is estimated at 87,000 tons
which is not far below the average
of 90,000 tons.
The 1929 hop crop in Oregon is
now estimated at 18,572,000 pounds
compared to 17,000,000 pounds last
year and the average of 14,109,000
The total apple crop is placed at
6,093,000 bushels which though con
siderably larger than a month ago
is still much below average. Of the
total production it is estimated 1,-
401,000 barrels will make up the
commercial apple crop in Oregon.
The 1929 production of pears es
timated at 2,090,000 bushels is con
siderably larger than the average
of 1,661,000 bushels but below the
1928 crop of 2,700,000 bushels.
Peach production in Oregon is
estimated at 208,000 bushels com
pared to 292,000 bushels last year
and the five year average of 291,000
Grapes are unchanged from July
1 and the estimate is 1928 tons com
pared to 2,025 tons last year.
Mr. and Mrs. Roy Missildine and
daughters of Blackhorse have been

How Much for Farmers?
uished Mr. B. Baer, who says: "If
we cannot get our faces on Govern
ment money, the next best thing is
to get your hands on it" Too many
believe that gambling is the best
way to get your hands on It,
Farmers are told that the value
of this year's wheat crop has in
creased $364,000,000 since June 1.
How much of that the farmers will
get, how much middle men, and es
pecially wheat gamblers will get,
Farmers might hire an intelligent
wheat speculator to sell their crops
for future delivery when prices are
high. As it is they wait until the
wheat is threshed. Then the price
Present estimates show that the
four big crops, wheat, corn, oats
and rye, are worth $3,545,000,000, an
increase of more than a thousand
million dollars in two months.
