STOCK FARMING IS
VERY SUCCESSFUL
IN TANANA REGION
"Any doubt as to the actual possi
bility of raising stock In the Yukon
Tanana country" writes Huge G.
Bennett in his recent report to the
Department of Agriculture, "Is easily
removed by the fact that fine speci
mens of cattle and hogs are raised
there, and that successful dairies are
I operated. The same point Is also
gained by the fact that large quanti
ties of native grass, and grain hay.!
as well as vetch, root crops and oth
er forms of forage are produced with I
no difficulty whatever. Cattle and
hogs can be raised on the products
of the region, and the vast extent of
land adapted to the production of
necessary 'feed points to the possibil
ity of successfully establishing Im
portant industries in the raising or j
stock or dairying or both. Dairying
appears to be the most promising in
dustry. but there seems to be no doubt
' that sufficient meat for home con
t .!_? + T
sumtion could be locally produced.
The rigors of the winter climate dc
not constitute sc serious an obstacle
to stock raising as might be suppos
ed. in the warm barns such as have
been constructed of spruce logs, wel
chinked with moss, stock seem to gel
along comfortably.
It is true chat stock must be main
talned by feeding 7 or 8 months ir
tho year; that is. whero not provided
with winter grass grazing such a>
wild peas of tho region have afforded
In many instances, but this Is the on
ly way to make uso of a great <iuan
tlty of valuable forage the country Ii
capable of producing, and tho crops o
native grasses than annually go t<
absolute waste. This forage can nol
be exported profitably and to be usee
at all must be utilized in the produc
tlon of beef, products, and pork.
It must be understood that this li
not a stock-raising region in the sens*
that cattlb can be turned upon vnsi
ranges, to care for themselves untl
ready for the roundup and market
Good grazing is available nearly ev
erywhere during the months of June
July, and August, and ordlnnrilj
through a part of May and Septem
ber. while browse consisting of frost
bitten vegetation will be available ir
many years through October and per
haps a part of November, but stock
men must be prepared to feed a
least 7 months of the year, and the;
must have efficient means for bous
ing all stock against the severe cold
As already pointed out, the countr;
Is fully capable of meeting this de
mand for feed; it only remains then
for those entering the business to em
ploy the ordinary means of laying in
necessary supplies of foed and provid
ing shelter.
Notwithstanding the fact that th<
region Is capable of producing muct
more beef than the present popula
tlon requires?more than a vastly lar
ger population would require? no
enough is produced to supply mon
than a small fraction of tho presen
demand. The meat product of th<
section at the present time Is mostl;
pork and veal raised scatteringly b;
a few roadhouse keepers, farmers oi
dairymen. Whilo considerable mill
and butter arc produced, the outpu
is but a comparatively unlmportnn
part of that used by the present pop
ulation.
Tne largest dairy farm visuea d;
Mr. Bennett was that of C. F. Thick
ley of Fairbanks. In September then
were on this farm 25 cows. 2 hull"
and several calves. Nineteen of th<
cows were giving milk. There wen
Durham. Jersey, Holstein and gradei
of these breeds. Milk was being sol<
at $1 per gallon, cream at $1 per pint
| and butter at 75 cents per pound
Three of the best milch cows at this
dairy were raised on the farm. Mos
of the calves were sold for veal.
The Yukon-Tanana region, is thui
demonstrably one of considerabli
stock raising and dairying possibill
ties. There is opportunity for ai
immediate extension of these Indus
tries to meet the demands of thi
present population for beef and dairy
products, and probably for pork. Th(
profitableness of shipping stock o
meat to outside markets is somewha
probtemetlcal, at least under presen
conditions of transportation. It mnj
be possible, however, to carry the
Industry to such a stage of develop
ment that such shipments can b(
made profitably when cheaper trans
portation is available. Exportation o
the more concentrated products, but
ter and cheese. Is even more promts
ing of success.
Chickens and ducks do well. A con
siderable number of flocks of th<
Rhode Island Reds and Plymouth Rocl
breeds are kept. Indian Runner duck!
were seen. Ranch eggs were solliw
at this time of rcconnalsonce at $1.5(
per dozen and cold storage eggs Im
ported at 75 cents per dozen."
