United States Plans to Make Ani
mal Important Factor in
TRY TO DOUBLE HIS WEIGHT
Alaska Hat 200.000 Reindeer With
Range for Several Mdliona —Multi-
ply From Original Importation
of 1,280 in 28 Year*.
Washington.—Santa Onus' reindeer
have promise of becoming a factor In
the meat supply of this country us
they are In Scandinavia, where rein
deer meat Inst year sold at u higher
price than beef or mutton. The gov
ernment Is going to aid In putting tlie
Infant Industry of Alaska on Its feet
by experiments in Increasing the rein
deer's weight to about double the pres
ent average by scientifically breeding
them, locating ranges and studying ttie
animal's diseases, parasites and graz
ing problems. Provision Is made ill
the agricultural appropriation hill of
this year for that purpose.
Alaska Has 200,000 Reindeer.
I>r. K. W. Nelson, chief of the bio
logical survey, in urging the appropria
tion. told congress there are about
"00.0110 reindeer In Alaska, of which
about three-fourths belong to the na
tives and one-fourth to the govern
ment and to white owners who have
started a commercial Industry in grow
ing reindeer for meat. These rein
deer multiplied from an original im
portation of 1,280 animals made 28
years ago for the benetit of the Ks
“People have asked me what the
future of the Industry Is likely to tie,”
said Dr. Nelson. "1 have replied by
asking them the question: 'lf 1.280 j
reindeer In 28 years produced the
present 200,000 animals, what Is like
ly to tie the Increase from 200,000 ani
mals In the next 28 years?' The in
crease Is almost unbelievable. In oth
er words, the Industry, properly han
dled. should have a great future.
“The Alaskan firm which has started
the Industry exported 1,000 head to
Seattle last year. The firm lias es
tablished four small cold storage
plants at points on the Alaskan coast
where the reindeer can readily he
driven down for slaughter to tie re
frigerated and loaded for shipment.
“I believe Alaska contains available
range to maintain from four to live
million of reindeer. The estimate lias
lni'ii made that It would take care
of 10,000,000, but I think that Is too
“Five million reindeer would give
an average output of about 1,250,000
reindeer a year. Dressed for market
an animal now averages 150 pounds.
Taking this weight and the present
value of reindeer meat, the fully de
veloped reindeer Industry In Alaska
should yield approximately $13,000,000
it year. Reindeer have been in Alaska
28 years and their Increase under
crude methods of handling has been
almost startling. Under proper sebm
tlfle supervision and modern methods
the Industry should develop very rii[i-
May Use Caribou for Breeding.
“There are big herds of wild caribou
nlmut the Mount McKinley region,
some bulls of whieh dress up to about
400 pounds. We plan to rapture some
bulls of this stoek and use them with
nn experimental herd of reindeer cows
for the purpose of building up a high
er grade of reindeer, having greater
weight and Increased hardiness. I be
lieve It will he practicable in less than
ten years to have the reindeer of Alas
ka running from 25n to 3<k pounds
to the carcass, Instead of 150 pounds
as at present.
“The Increased weight would In
crease the value of the fully developed
Alaska reindeer Industry enough to
tiring the potential output around <-<H
-000,non at present value. That Is more
than the fisheries of Alaska produce.
“Stefansson. the Arctic explorer,
was hero recently. '** Is interested
In the lease granted by "the ('aiindlan
government for a great area for rein
deer grazing In Ratlin's bay region. He
Into.ined me that In the Scandinavian
countries of Kuropc about 200.000 rein
deer are killed for meat each year.
“We are talking about helping to
build up Alaska, and here Is one tiling
that is right In sight today, a tine,
Idg industry, and 1 do not know of any
other like It In the Immediate future.
Tin* future looks so promising that
the expenditure whieh we contemplate
Is trilling compared with what the
outcome Is likely to be."
