High Farm Output
Asked For Again
In Oregon Goals
More Pigs and Peas,
Less Wheat Seen
In New Schedule
Another year of high output from
Oregon farms and ranches is called
for in the state production goals for
1947, reports ' E. Harvey Miller,
chairman of the state PMA com
mittee. Total crop acres recom
mended for 1947 are about the same
as this year, but sharp adjustment
are asked for some crops.
The needs for meeting a strong
domestic demand, for building re
serves of some commodities and for
sending some foods still badly need
ed to war-devastated countries have
resulted in the call for a high 1947
output, Miller, pointed out. This
means that farmers are asked to
defer for another year the return
to peacetime patterns of prodncion.
Final state goals which have been
approved to date were listed as fol
lows: Spring pigs, 25,000 sows to far
row, 9 percent increase from the
23,000 in 1946.
Rye, 38,000 acres, same as 1946.
Sugar beets, 22,000 acres, up 10
percent from this year'r record of
Dry peas, 22,000 acres (8,000
smooth, 14,000 wrinkled), same as
Austrian peas, 25,000 acres, up 72
percent from this year's 14,500
Crimson clover, 2,000 acres, down
13 percent from the 2,300 acres har
vested in 1946.
Hairy vetch, 55,000 acres, up 45
percent from this year's 38,000
Common and Willamette vetch.

By scrapping ships not slated for
the active fleet, the Navy would
realize less than one percent of
their original cost. Instead, the
Navy will preserve 2,200 ships in
two inactive fleets for 20 years at
approximately the same cost as
their scrap value.
86,000 acres, down 21 percent from
this year's 109,000 acres.
Common ryegrass, 80,000 acres,
down 18 percent from this year's
Wheat, 1,000,000 acres, down 8
percent from this year's 1,085,000
Potatoes, 45,400 acres, down 13
percent from this year's 52,000
Some of the final goals for fall-
seeded crops differ in the percent
age change from 1946 from the goals
announced earlier before planting
time. This represents revisions in
1946 production figures, as suggest
ed acreages for 1947 remain un
changed, Miller explained.
Suggested state goals submitted
by the department of agriculture
for other crops and commodities
will be considered by the Oregon
USDA council within the next few
weeks, the PMA chairman said.
These Include dairy, livestock and
poultry goals, barley, oats, hay, and
hay and pasture crop seeds.
