1938 U. S. Crops
May be Largest
In Many Seasons
Favorable crop prospects in Ore
gon are not unlike conditions gen
erally in the country as a whole,
according to the monthly review of
the agricultural situation and out
look just released by the Oregon
State college extension service. The
season is starting off with prospects
for crops, ranges and pastures mod
erately better than in any of the past
several years, which is pretty good
considering that crop production
last year turned out 13 per cent
above the 1924-1929 average. Some
parts of the Great Plains area are
still lacking in subsoil moisture; so
that crop yields in such districts will
depend upon adequate rainfall dur
ing the rest of the growing season.
The abundance of production now
in prospect is evidenced somewhat
by the April 1 government estimate
of winter wheat production 726 mil
lion bushels. This compares with
685 million last year and 546 million
as the 1927-1936 average. Allowing
200 million for spring wheat, the
crop could be large enough to care'
for all domestic and export require
ments and a very substantial increase
' in surplus stocks. '
Feed grain production prospects
are below average, but the supply
will be ample considering the near
record carry-over and the somewhat
reduced (but increasing) numbers
of livestock on hand.
Conditions are favorable for heavy
milk production, and surveys show
increases in young chickens and
turkeys, owing to favorable feed
conditions and better prices for ani
mal products relatively than for
crop products, statistics show.
The report contains various index
figures of farm prices, costs and
demand conditions, which indicate
that the economic position of agri
culture is somewhat less favorable
than a month ago and materially be
low the situation a year ago. The
Oregon farm price index is given at
65 per cent of the 1926-1930 aver
age level, two points lower than in
February and 27 points below March
1937. The farm cost index shows a
decline of six points compared with
a year ago.
In Other States
Oregon must find markets outside
of the state for approximately two
of each three turkeys raised, H. E.
Cosby, head of the poultry depart
ment at Oregon State college, points
out in a new extension circular en
titled, "Turkey Chats."
Oregon turkeys are known far
and wide for their fine quality, but
the increased production of tur
keys in states near large terminal
markets brings Oregon producers
face to face with such problems as
quality improvement, lower produc
tion costs, orderly marketing, im
proved packaging for consumers
and advertising, Cosby continues.
"The Oregon turkey grower is for
tified by years of experience and by
availability of quality breeding
stock," says Cosby. "He is further
protected by having a choice of two
methods of marketing his turkey
crop through established indepen
dent dealers and established coop
erative marketing associations serv
ing the western surplus producing
areas. He is still further fortified
by having a choice of purchasing
his feed3 either through cooperative
or independent feed agencies."
The seven-page circular contains
considerable specific information re
lating to steps in most efficient tur
key production. Feed formulas are
given for both breeding and grow
ing flocks. The handling of breed
ing stock is discussed at some length,
as is the handling of hatching eggs,
the feeding schedule during brood
ing, points on finishing turkeys for
market, and methods for avoiding
off -flavors in turkey meat. The cir
cular, No. 314, may be obtained free.
Every qualified elector in Oregon
over the age of 50 years would be
entitled to a weekly pension of from
$10 to $25 under the terms of a pro
posed initiative measure sponsored
by Eugene Burr of Portland and El
lis Bennett of Salem. The only re
quirement to participation in bene-
