FIRST HAY CROP
YIELD IS GOOD
The hay is in the stack. Farmers
in the productive Nyssa country
and in other irrigated sections of
Malheur county have harvested the
first crop. Most of the stacking was
completed the last of the week.
From the Deseret Sheep Comp
any ranch near Nyssa, rented by
John Van Zelf, comes the report
that a heavy first crop was cut
from the 200 acres in alfalfa. Only
a few patches of old stand were in
jured by wilt and they will be re
seeded this year. It took sixteen
men a period of two weeks to har
vest the hay at the Deseret.
There are many hay ranches in
the Nyssa area. They do their part
in maintaining the seven ton per
acre yield for Malheur county, the
highest average production of any
county in the state.
Growing enthusiasm marks prepara
