1857 was perhaps the first attempt
by agriculture ' to get a fair share
of the nation's income. He stressed
three things for agriculture: Firstly,
cooperation Ten years ago Wallowa
stockmen were paying $1.50 per cwt.
to get stock marketed; grange mem
bers appointed first agricultural
committee, pooled shipments of
stock and marketed them at actual
cost of but 76c per cwt. Secondly,
pea raising A new industry in the
northwest has been found profitable.
Today Oregon, Washington and Ida
ho raise and process 25 percent of
the canned peas in the U. S., and
this is being done when there was
no scarcity of peas, because of econ
omy in producing the crop here.
