THE SWEET CLOVER
HARVEST IN PROGRESS

IMPORTANT FORAGE PLANT

Produce Tliuiisamls of Bushels of
Tho North Platto Sweet Clover Seed
Co., of which Thoa, Orton is pcsldent
and C. 0. Welngand secretary, began
the harvest of sweet clover Saturday.
This company has contracted the
plant growing on several thousand
acres of land In tho valley, both nort,h
and south of tho rivers, and to harvest
tho crop In tho quickest, possible time
they have assembled an outfit of no
mean proportions. They have rigged
outia tractor engine which hauls three
binding machines, and in addition to
this aro running ten mowing machines,
borne fifteen or twonty men being cm
ployed. Tho largest area contracted
by tho company is on the Turpio ranch
t'oulli of the river, whero several
hundred acres aro in a body, and from
other individual owners they have con
tracted almost ns large bodies; these
in addition to the smaller patches
which aro found scattered all over the
valloy on the uncultivated fields.
Loypoldt & Wickstrom, of Hcrshcy,
is another firm that will harvest a big
acreage of this plant which has re
ceived such a big boost during the past
two years. Last year this firm shipped
out several carloads of tho seed, tho
market price of which ran as high
as twelve dollars per bushel.
The demand for sweet clover seed
Is strong in tho farming communities
of the middlo west and tho east, whero
it does well as a forage plant and
seems to ho held in higher esteem
than it does in this country. This Is
probably due to tho abundance of al
falfa and prairie hay in this country
and the moderate price the latter com
mands as compared with hay prices
in the east.
It is probable that the value of sweet
clover seed shipped out of the Platto
Valley in, Lincoln county will not fall
short of fifty thousand dollars.
