A shift to grains for feeding on the farm would mean a delay in income from that source up to a year or more. Fur- thermore, a shift to hay and pas- ture in large part would result in postponement of several years while herds were being organ- ized and grass was being estab- lished. The longer-run adjust- ments almost always are the more difficult to make, but if they are in the direction of bal- ancing production with available i markets they probably will prove to be the most satisfactory ad- "ustment for agriculture. Washington Auction Yards Livestock Sales for Oct. 1953 In October 1953, 30,622 head moved through Washington auc- tion yards. Of this amount 20,319 head were classified as stackers; 807 head moved into interstate channels and 9,025 head were de- termined for immediate slaugh- ter. Additional livestock sales in- cluded swine 1,583, horses 257, sheep 1,071. These figures repre- sented the official sales tabula- tion for the 38 leading sales yards in the state.
