Farm Analysis Predicts
Status of Poultry and
Dairying in Oregon.
Oregon State College, Corvallia,
Feb. 11 Reflecting the national out
look report that production of sta
ple farm commodities for 1930 will
equal or exceed demand with no
further increase, but pointing out
particular conditions in this state,
the annual Oregon agricultural out
look report has just been released
here by the extension service.
The report was prepared by L.
R. Breithaupt, extension economist,
in consultation with other college
specialists, immediately following
Brelthaupt's return from Washing
ton where he assisted In preparing
the national outlook released last
Monday. Incidentally, a check-up
shows that past national reports
have been right in nine cases out of
10 in their predictions.
"Total spendable income from Or
egon farm products of 1930 is not
likely to be greater and may be less
than for 1929," says a general open
ing statement of the report "On
the other hand, farm expenses may
be slightly less so that the average
sum available for farm family liv
ing may not be much different"
Machinery Prices Steady.
The labor situation is likely to be
easier early in 1930 for farmers,
with wages likely to rise in the last
half of the year, the report predicts.
Farm machinery prices are expect
ed to remain about the same and
farm taxes In Oregon may show
slight reductions as indirect taxes
Turning first to the dairy situa
tion, the report points out that the
total number of milk cows in the
United States increased 700,000 head
or three per cent in 1929, a rate at
least three times too fast under nor
mal demand conditions.
Figures on dairy heifers on hand
now indicate an excess of half a
million yearlings, and that the num
ber of heifer calves under a year
old is proportionately large. Selling
off of old and poor producing cows
to relieve this situation, is expected
to be slow until milk cow prices
decline more nearly in line with
their value for beef. Dairymen are
unlikely to have a more favorable
time than now to sell cull cows,
says the report.
Western Herds Normal.
"Although there are relatively
more dairy heifers in western states
than east of the Rockies, the num
ber here Is not much In excess of
requirements for producing dairy
products sufficient for demand in
these states," the outlook reads.
"The important factors In dairy
market outlook are domestic sup
ply and domstic markets. . . Dairy
men with good cows in areas where
good feed can be produced econom
ically and in localities specializing
in high quality products, will have
The present situation In poultry
is comparable to that of four years
ago at the beginning of the period
of declining prices, according to the
poultry section of the report There
is evidence that Oregon egg pro
ducers will have more eggs to sell
during 1930-31-32 than In 1929 when
carlot shipments from Oregon drop
ped 12 per cent
trgo Use Market Outlook.
"While Oregon poultrymen may
find it relatively more profitable to
contlpue to operate on a stabilized
basis or even to expand production
during periods of declining egg
prices rather than turn to other
commodities, it seems certain that
an advantage would be gained by
considering the market outlook
when considering changes In pro
duction," the report concludes.
"If Oregon poultrymen should
have the most eggs to sell when
prices are high rather than the least
quantity at that time. . . they would
"make more money in the long run.
Large nocks of high producing hens
and production of high quality eggs,
are also important factors in suc
cessful poultry keeping."
Reports on farm crops, horticul
ture and livestock outlooks will be
Issued next week. The entire re
port and separates on the various
commodities are being printed and
will be available at once free of

COLLEGE STATION GROWING.
An ever increasing schedule for
KOAC is revealed In the annual re
port of that station for 1920. Start
ing In 1925 with a modest 500 watt
transmitter operating only three
nights per week and averaging
slightly more than four hours a
week, the radio service of the col
lege has steadily increased to more
than four hours a day six days a
week. The power is now double
what it was at the beginning and
the hours of service each week Is
more than seven times as great as

Lower profits in selling save you at least
$50 to $75 in addition to the many
savinys in manufacturing
TWENTY-SEVEN years ago the Ford Motor Company
was formed to provide reliable, economical trans
portation for all the people. That original purpose
has never changed. The constant effort in every activity
is to find ways to give you greater and greater value
without extra cost : frequently at lowered cost. This
applies to distribution and similar important factors,
as well as manufacture. '
For the Ford Motor Company believes that its full
duty is not only to make a good automobile at the
lowest possible price, but to see that there is no waste,
extravagance, or undue profit in any transaction from
the time the car leaves the factory until it is delivered
to your home. It is obvious that hard-won savings in
production will be of little value if they are sacrificed
later through excessive selling costs.
EVERY purchaser of a motor car has the right to know
how much of the money he pays is for the car itself
and how much is taken up by dealer charges. If these
charges are too high, one of two things must happen.
Either the price of the car must be raised or the
quality lowered. There is no other way. The money
must come from somewhere.
In the case of the Ford, the low charges for distri
bution, selling, financing and accessories mean a direct
saving of at least $50 to $75 to every purchaser in
addition to the still greater savings made possible by
economies in manufacturing. Ford charges are not
marked up or increased to cover a high trade-in
allowance on a used car.
The profit margin on the Ford car has always
been fair to both the dealer and the public. Within the
past three months, it has been possible to effect still
further economies. Todays the discount or commit
sion of the Ford dealer is the lowest of any automobile
dealer. The difference, ranging from 25 to nearly
50, comes right off the price you pay for the car.
The business of the Ford dealer is good because he
makes a small profit on a large number of sales instead
of a large profit on fewer sales. He knows, too, that
the extra dollar-for-dollar value of the car makes
it easier to sell and more certain to give satisfactory
service after purchase.
Consider also that the Ford car is delivered to the
purchaser equipped with a Triplex shatter-proof glass
windshield, an extra steel-spoke wheel, and bright,
enduring Rustless Steel for many exterior metal
parts, in addition to four Houdaille double-acting
hydraulic shock absorbers and fully enclosed four
If for any reason you wish to buy certain small
accessories, you will find that these, too, are sold at
the usual Ford low prices. Replacement parts are also
available at low prices through Ford dealers in every
section of the country.
These are important points to remember in consid
ering the purchase of a irotor car. They show why it
is possible to put so much extra quality into the new
Ford and still maintain the low price. They are
also the reasons why more than 35 of all cars
sold today are Model A Fords.
