Fiue lot of Steers Received Portland. it yearly occurrence to send to market i two or more carloads of at cattle, and even to sell more grain tl an they did before they fed the ttock. From their i One hundred fine steers came dowi frjin Eastern Oregon yesterday. Tv carloads were stopped fit Troutdul. and the others came through to Ton land. Though they were designed fi r shipment to Pugct Sound, the Unii.n Meat Company, by bidding up tl i price slightly, induced tlie Stockyarils Company, which handled them, to re turn anothei carload tn Tmnt.'nl,. The other carload to Trutd.ile. Tht o her curloid will go through to C. BTgheim, cf Tacoma, who bought tlieni for 44 cents a pound. E. Willard, of La Grande, sentthes, aiimals to the Portland Btockni.i-.lK hr sale. Mr. Willard boueht them in the Wallowa Valley last summer and fattened them on the stubble fields ol the Grand Ronde Valley since about September 15. Most of the m urn V . year olds, but there are a few short-1 ajod 3s anionc them. The W'ightofthe animals ns they came fr m the cars, after a ride of 350 miles with all the shrinkage such a trip en tiils,, was 1075 pounds each. Tliey are Shorthorn grades. If Bto'ckmen would put the same Jegree ol finish on their cattle that.is represented by the condition of this shipment, buyers say, they could be aasvred of en easy sale at the highest price, while a poorly finished lot might have a slow sale at the lowest price, v The Portland stockyards have c.dls for fat cattle every dav from British Columbia and Puget Sound country. Manager fyiughtrey says tiie present demand for fat hogs is also in excess of tlje supply, though a larger number oi l ogs than ever be fore jvre being offered. Only a small art of them arc fat enough to make a quick sale at top prices. In speaking of yesterday's receipts if steers from the Grand llondc valley, md the manner in which they were inished for the market, Dr. C. E. lurchinson, of the hical station, Unit- States Bureau of Animal Industry, .lid: "This lot of cattle illustrates.the ex- elleut results to he obtained iy graz- ng stock through the Fall and win der on these Htubble helds. It is evi- U-nt that these wheat fields furnish a pistu:-age with a very high nutritive intent. An examination of the munches of both cattle and sheep fd tpon these stubble fields shows that ii addition to the abundance of green ed afforded, a great amount of grain is secured from the lodged and seini- leveloped stalks which are not reach 1 by the headers. The flesh of these nimals is firm, of excellent flavor and tsnuer lexiure, ana ine preuominuiii;i of lean meat is a marked charactem- success it is cocoming more and mora evident that wheat, barley and alfalfa, j or stubble pasture, of the North Pao-1 ific Stotes will furnish a cheaper and better supply of beef and pork than will the coin fields of the Central States." Her-: is a eonfirmatisn of the estkji- ! ate made by the (Jrceoniaii several week ago that Porcland is situated fnorably for a packing industry as great , ns that cf Kansas City. Mr. Willard has! 245 more cattle fattening on the ordinary waste of Grand Itonde stubble fields.
