HEASUREMENT SAYS ALLRED Farm Market Director of State Says Growers of Hay Should Give Full Ton When Selling. our M'nwfyiaj.n Idaho Can US6 . , Forage Crop Raised Ml O ev. TP wo QYimild ,in< SSOUtn Jî armerS SnOUiCl j CnntirilH» to Hold Their ! ,he \sUUbl Price at $15. j While farmers should continue to ! hold their hay for *15 a ton, they should also see that the buyers are ln given good measurement, ln the opinion of the state farm market bureau which has Issued a. bulletin pointing ! out that there Is a demand for south ern Idaho hay ln the north and much of it can be shipped to the panhandle and sold at a good figure. In the bulletin Director Allred says: In June of the present year, I Is sued from this department the first bulletin on hay, requesting the farm ers to hold their hay for *15 a ton. if they werq convenient to shipping points, and later advised them against ] accepting less than *12.50 per ton if they were distant from railroad nnd were under the necessity of depending wholly on local market. Since that time, there has been con stant effort on the part of'buyers toj a beat this price down, and various means have been resorted to ln effort to con vince the grower that he could not realize these figures. On the other hand, some farmers growing hny In ter ritory' distant from railroad have been SO extreme that they have demanded from *16 to *18 in the stack for their hay. In spite of the fact that I cau tioned them against doing this. Such action on the part of hay growers has made the buyer justly resentful, be cause he felt that they were being taken advantage of. WANT FULL MEASUREMENT. Buyers from nearly every section of the state have repeatedly informed me [hat they were willing to pay these prices for an honest ton of hay, hut :hat many farmers insist upon a mens- ; pd urement that will fall from 5 to 20 per cent short of a ton. I know from long practical experi ?nce in buying and selling hay, that the ordinary method of measuring and al lowing 412 or 422 cubic feet to the ton, will not hold out, even though the hay lias been honestly stacked and set tled 00 to 90 days. When a grower asks $13 a ton for his hay. he should mean a ton, and not an Indefinite something less. If he bjles his hay and delivers it on board the cars, he sells a full ton by weight, and if he sells in the stack, his measure ment should equal the weight required to make a ton. The farm markets de partment set out to obtain for the farmer, an equitable price for his hay, and we know ihe price we asked the farmers to hold for is an equitable one, and that they will get that price If they will but hold and uphold the policy of the farm markets department, which we feel has been clearly defined In our every act, as one of justice to *11 concerned. NORTH NEEDS HAY. At present we have market for thou sands of tons at $18 and $19 on board 'he cars —the higher price being of - ; feted for shipments from the south - ; western part of the state. I just re- f turned from north Idaho and find that much of our hay will be required in that section, and that hay is now being shipped in and sold there all the way ! from $24 to $35 per ton. depending upon shipping facilities, and distance from shipping points. If the farmers will give us an esti- j mate of the number of tons of hay they ! have for sale, and wish to ship, the time it could be baled ready for ship- ! ping, and the name of their loading sta- ■ lion, from present indications, we will lie able to move the hay just as soon as ! cars are available, and as fast as it can 1 be loaded at therfi prices. Should the market conditions change, causing a rise or decline in price of fered. we will at once inform them through bulletin from this office. a in SOUTH BOISE.
