OLYMPIA, WASH.. KKIDAY. .MARCH It!. IMI7 NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR DAIRYMEN Head of Dairying at State Col lege Says Washington Should Produce Own Cheese. Commenting on the course in cheese-making now being given at the State College, and the future of the cheese manufacturing industry in Washington, Professor A. B. Nystrom says: "The recent rise in the cheese-mak ing industry in Washington is due to the surplus of milk. An extensive cheese-making industry in the state will tend to equalize the price of milk for different seasons of the year. As matters now stand, there is an over supply of butterfat in the summer time. so much of which is used in but ter-making that the price of butter is lowered. If the dairymen could dis pose of their milk to cheese factories A. B. Nystrom in the summer, the summertime price of butterfat would be less fluctuating —and this is why the entry of cheese making in Washington, at this time, will tend to stabilize the whole dairy industry. "Washington is now making suffi cient butter to meet the needs of its population—a thing which has come about fairly recently. In fact, the state now is producing butter for ex port. Butterfat is now selling for from 37 cents to 39 cents a pound, which is somewhat less than former prices, notwithstanding the fact that feed of most kinds used by dairymen has lately advanced rapidly in price. "In the matter of cheese, however, the state is far from self-supporting. If the state were making its own cheese, instead of shipping it in from the eastern states, not only would we have a state market for all sur plus milk now produced, but a market for an Immensely greater quantity of milk than now is produced in the state. The state's natural advantages for cheese-making are so marked that it should produce, and, no doubt, in time will produce large quantities of high grade cheese." New Silos In Snohomish. County Agricultural Agent C. F. Monroe, of Snohomish county, reports to the State College that in the past year twenty-two silos with an aggre gate silage capacity of 1,600 tons have been built in bis county. He states that in the experience of Snohomish county dairymen, 40 pounds of silage replaces 20 pounds of hay, and pro duces a flow of milk which is superior to the hay. With hay figured at |2O a ton and silage at $4 a ton, he es timates that the new silos will save Snohomish county dairymen about $14,000 a year. He states further that the recent introduction of alfalfa production in the county is already saving the coun ty over $9,000 a year on freight and baling charges paid on hay formerly shipped in from the Yakima valley and other points. State Must Inspect All Hay and Grain (From the State Capitol Record.) It is the duty of the state hay and grain inspector to inspect and weigh all grain and hay received at ter minal warehouses and to collect the fee fixed by the public service com mission for such service, according to a formal opinion given the com mission by Assistant Attorney Gen eral Hance H. Cleland. The question arose in connection with the inspection of grain belong ing to the Sperry Flour Company of Tacoma. In addition to buying grain from country points, which un der the law must be inspected and weighed by the state department, the company also brings grain to its ter minal warehouse at Tacoma from its own elevator at Oreston. It contend ed it should not have to pay fees for inspection of this grain, inasmuch as the grain is simply transferred. Ac cording to the opinion, the state grain inspector has no alternative but to inspect all grain shipped into terminal warehouses. Legislative Resu Set F (From the State Capitol Record.)

The hog that rustles bis living in old stack bottoms and eats snow until spring, and then is fed up for market, bas lately been compared with the pig that is comfortably boused and well fed in winter, by the Washing ton Experiment Station—the object being to see which pig produces pork with the least cost, per amounts or feed consumed. This experiment, upon which a bul letin by William Hislop and K. B. Krantz will be published soon, shows Feeding alfalfa from self feeder on Btate College Farm that the stack-fed pig comes through winter in good health and with an un diminished appetite, but with a stunt ed body, as compared with the more carefully housed and fed animal. The pig that has roughed it through the winter is not as heavy an eater in spring as is the better nurtured hog —because the former is a smaller pig The feed that is eaten by the small pig, however, Is transformed into pork at a cost lower than the similar cost incurred by the Jarger pig; but STOPS BUYING MIMTIIONS. Great Britain Notifies American Plans to Complete Contracts Munitions makers in this country have been notified by the British government that all contracts for the manufacture of shrapnel and other shells must be completed by March 31, and that on that date all con- tracts in existence for these war ma terials will lapse. The English government, during the last year, has brought its produc tion of munitions to a point where it is no longer necessary to import them. That the move would be made by the British has been known in this country for the last six months, and the big plants have been preparing to put their shell making machinery to other uses. quent lav interest from 15 per tent to 12 |>er rent.

Tbe tankage product gave the better results. Pigs that had a pasture of peas and oats did better on the barley and meat meal ration than did the animals that had the same ration in "dry lot" or in combination with a pasture of young alfalfa. In another experiment, pigs which had been fed a grain ration in "dry lot" were transferred to an alfalfa pasture, and along with tbe pasturage were given a ration of rolled barley, buttermilk, and the standard mineral mixture. In dry lot the pigs produced pork for $6.67 per hundred pounds. In the alfalfa pasturage with butter milk and other items to make a com plete ration, the same pigs produced pork for $3.37 a hundred.
