Millions of dollars are lost annu
ally by the wheat farmers of Nebras
ka between the time the wheat crop
matures and the time it is marketed.
Th's is caused largely by exposure
to weather and on account of too
much moisture in the grain
The quality of this wheat is all
light until harvest time, but poor
handling after Inmost, such as long
cxposuic in tho sihock and storing in
stacks or bins when too damp, causes
the greater part of these lo scs. Of
ficial figures show that over 11 per
cent of all the wheat maiketed 'n tiu
southwest during 191!), 1920 and 1!"J
was graded dawn one gra:e or mcio
on account of execsjive most rc-tV"-
amount rf wheat being too dan

There !s nothing that will insiue
a good qimlity of wheat more than
proper stacking. Wheat that goes

improved in color and quality and
will often bring as much as five cents
