WILL EE ME THOROUGH Instead ef On Estimate a Year for th 48 State Ther Will B 12 Covering th 3,000 Agricultural Counties In th United State Sta tistic Will Show Ag and 8x Clas sification a, Well Quality. (Prepared by the United State Depart ment of Agriculture.) Up to this, time the United State deimrtment of agriculture ha Isxued a Mtik'le estimate. In January of each year, showing how many bead of the vnrlouM kltwlN of live stock there ere lu thu United States, and one estimate a year showing losse by disease. Now the whole system Is to be changed. As soon n the r-chlnery can be pot In openillnn by tue burentt of crop eMI mules, (here will be 12 live-stock estl mutes n yinr Inetead of one. Instead if being' made for the 48 sfnte they will be nutde for the 8.IMK) agricultural cotmtle In the UnltH Stales. Instead of hhowlng merely that there are ro many horxes. so many cattle, o many sheep, end so on, they will be made by a?e and sex classifications. That Is, they will show what proportion !fl breeding stock, what proportion grow ing stork, and what proportion "mar ketable stuff," They will show qual ity as well as numbers the propor tions of purebred animals, of grade siiinmm, una or scnins. A great deal more than that, even. Is to be done under the new system. These surveys will show, besides actual live-stock fiirurt s. a great many things pertaining to and affecting the live-stock Industry. They will show bow many alios there are nnd what they contain, how much fvt Is nn hand and In propect available for feeding to live stock ; nnd the condi tion of 'pastures and ranges through out the United State. This showing, will be made every month In the yenr. Pasture Knowledge Vital. The last-mentioned item, tlrat of the condition of. pasture and ranges, is of much greater Importance thnn might appear nt first blush. Leaving all of the other out of nrconnt for the moment. It should result In consid erable Increase of live-stock produc tion as well, a Increased profits to a great ninny live-stock men. It will mnke possible quick shift of live stock from sections where, for some reason, the pasture are short to other sections where for the time be ing the supply of pasturage Is much grenter than required by the live Btoci on band. Almost every year somewhere In the United States srciit numbers of cattle nnd- sheep suffer for luck of pasture. un to put on weltrht. and, If they do not die, are finally sold at n consider able loss to their owners. At 'the same time tii.it this Is going on, multi plied millions of ( dollar' worth of gran goes to waste in various other sections of the United States, be cause the supply of live stock bu hand la not sufllclent to eat It. The average furmer who makes live stock a side line, or even one of his main lines, play., snfe In the matter of pasture. The number of head of live atock he carries is the number be knows he can carry safely If con ditions should happen to be such as to cut his pastures short. Very rarely does he carry the maximum number that would be possible with bis pns turea at their best or even at normal. It happens, therefore, when his pas tures are exceptionally good and even when they are normally good, he has considerably more grass than I need ed by his live stock. . With reliable monthly reports from the government each month, showing Just the condition of pastures every where, the feeder or range owner who finds himself short of grass should have little difficulty In distributing his cattle wjiere there. Is abundance of grass, -keeping his young and poor stuff from going to the 'Slaughter pen before they are ready and generally making his business more profitable and more sntlsfnctory. More Important Work Planned. : All of the other Items In the new program of the bureau of crop esti mate are equally Important, and some of them are vastly more so.. The pub lication monthly of reliable figures showing the live-stock situation the country over should result practically In putting the live-stock business of the farmer on a more secure basis. The live-stock dealer nlwnys has the means of getting, on his own respond siblllty, a pretty . accurate survey of the situation, but the farmer hus.no access to those sources of Information. When the government gives him the figures that are promised he will be on an eqtial footing with the buyer. If there were ever" :(ay doubt as to the ability of the dep rtment of agri culture to obtnln quickly and accu rately country-wide Information, on present and prospective foiid supplies, the doubt has been dispelled. The war emergency demonstrated the matter very clearly. During the two years, 1017 and 1018, the department estl- POTATO GROWERS ARE RAPIDLY ADOPTING . MOTORTRUCKS TO CARRY LOADS TO MARKET a it Tubers Being Unloaded From In regions where potato production I specialized, motortrucks are being rapidly adopted for hauling even when the distance to the railroad siding Is relatively short. Two-ton trucks are popular for this purpose, and 100 bushels, or 6,000 pounds, are common ly taken at a trip. One business like potato grower whose farm Is four miles from railroad states that he av erages five trips a day, hauling 100 bushels to a trip; that he uses the truck little except during a two months' shipping season; that his haulage costs, allowing for Interest, repairs, storage, depreciating and driver's wages, averages about $2.23 a trip, or SM cents a bushel. He states that "the haulage cost would be noticeably reduced If he used the truck over a greater iwriod. Flv Trip Per Day. ITe figures a ten-mile round trip, three tons being carried lu going. It would le possible tn mnke six trips a ualed In advance of the planting sea son the nrrpflf-A thnr fnrmpra IntonriMl to plant to food crops. Iu both yeat ' these preplantlng estlnint came w"th tn .1 per cent, of the final figures. In UllS, when 'for the first time It wua possible to check up accurately on wheat, the department's estimates came within 2 per cent of the wheat production, as i-liown by the quan tity used for seed and total receipts at mills and elevators as reported by the grain corporation of the food ad ministration. Such figures, authoritative and un biased, arc a prerequisite to the most Intelligent program either of produc tion or of marketing. They prevent the Issuance of biased uud-misleudlng reports by speculators. They tend to stabilize prices by giving advance In formation of overproduction or under production." The certainty of supply resulting from dependable government reports reduces the carrying' risk of buyers and dealers, and enables them to pay better prices than would be possible otherwise. Th government reports enable transportation com panies to estimate tonnage and to pro vide cars when and where tbey are needed. They give bankers the In formation necessary In providing funds j for financing farmers In the produc- I tlon of their crops and, after harvest, for buyers and distributers of crops. ( They enable manufacturers to kuow, I months In advance, what materials 1 should be contracted for In order that farm machinery, equipment, and sup plies may be made available without annoying and expensive delays. . There Is just one class of men In jured by the government crop reports. They are the professional speculators who profit by the ignorance and un certainty of others. Those facts have long been realised as to the government reports on field crops. Now they are to become equal ly true as to live stock. . To Shew "Commercial Production." A number of other things are to be done under the new program. One will be to show, not merely total pro duction, but commercial production as well.' That Is, the crijp report 'will show not only how much of a given commodity Is produced on the farms but how much leaves the farms and goes on the market. The price of any thing Is not determined by the quan tity of that thing produced on the farm, consumed, on the farm, or wasted on the farm, so much as by the mar ketable, surplus the portion that actu ally lenves the farm and becomes a factor tn supply nnd deniqpd in the open mnrkx't. Another Importont thing that will be a little longer In coming is the actual taking of a farm census every year instead of using as a basis of all figures the last preceding 10-year cen ill, it - i r W t is A-- U 1 v ,hv; m i Refrigerator Car Into Motortruck. day. Instead of five, be says, were' it not for the Inevitable delays , which occur at the statian. Heavy shipping causes congestion, and new arrival must wait tbeir turn to unload the truck. Fruit Growers Favor Truck. , Fruit growers are another class among whom autotrucks are becoming common. The big fruit farm, hauling Its own fruit to the railroad, uses horses in the, fall out of all proportion to farm needs at other seasons. Numerous large fruit farms formerly made no attempt to keep draft horses In the numbers required for fall haul ing and Instead let this work out on contract, at so much a box or bar rel. The autotruck Interests this class; during the long, idle periods It consumes no oats. The autotruck is also pmvlug valuable to growers of perishable fruits, permitting them to ignore the express route and find a market In a hnrry when required. sus. KTbls Is to be accomplished by using, tax assessors as gatherers of basic farm .figures. About CO stat have already passed laws requiring assessors to do this work, the returns to be made to the state commissioner of agriculture and to be checked tip by the state field aent of rfce bureau of crop estimates. In states wbfcre such laws have been passed, tbey an-, for the most part, new and are not yet fully In effective operation. The de partment of agriculture ejects, how ever, that similar laws will be passed In all other states and the plan put in complete effective operation through out the Cnlted States within the neii five years. -r A great deal of work is being done, also looking to closer co-operation be tween the federal dept.rtment of agri culture and the , state departments. Such co-operation results In combining the facilities of the two ofganlzattons and using them for the Issunnce of a single monthly crop report for the state Instead of two. Co-operative agreements have been entered Into in Wisconsin. Ohio, Illinois. Iowa. Ne braska, Missouri. Georgia. Alabama, North Carolina. West Virginia. Arkan sas, Ctah and Idaho, and are nnder consideration In many other states. MRS.
