Later he showed me over his farm. It didn't take me long to find that Tom Orloff has done a lot of hard, straight thinking about the problems of milk producers in California. "Dairymen can solve their own production problems, 1 * he told me. "These problems are under our own control* Say* Farmer* Need Marketing Help But we producers must depend on others to market our product and maintain demand for it. This means we must be linked with distributors that havi an ORLOFF HOLSTEINS coming in for the noon feeding. This herd is made up entirely of Hoi- steins. At the Milpitas dairy, which Tom Orloff operates with his partner, there arc Guernseys also. From Plcasanton 2100 gallons of milk are shipped daily; from Milpitas, 2300 gallons daily. This milk goes to the big consuming market* bordering San Francisco Bay. n CUTTING TIME—From the main dairy barns, acres of alfalfa stretch to the horizon. When your Farm Reporter was there, crews were cutting the hay which will carry the herd through the dry season. CROP ROTATION—Tom Orloff has 31 acres in tomatoes this year. He believes these sturdy plants are "the best in the whole valley." Next year this field will be in alfalfa.

Pool, 33, former mayor oC Windsor, Calif., who died at his homo yesterday after a brief illnrw. "The policies of such chain store organizations as Safeway show that they are continually getting a bettc understanding of the producer's problems," he thinks. "These distributors avoid encouraging farmers to go into dairying when there is already a surplus. They frankly discuss common problems with producers. "The Safeway attitude of cooperating with the Young Control Board program-—and paying eVen higher than the going price to producers in some cases gives welcome encouragement to high quality dairy* ing. Such policies improve the dairy man* 6 situation,'* I asked Tom Orloff his opinion of Safewfty's practice of selling milk through stores At a ca*h-and*carry price less than that charged by distributors delivering milk to homes. * - : He replied; **If Safeway can make iniik available at a lower price, the consumer who is willing to wait , * r . .

'This protects milk quality.

No matter what you raise—fruits, nuts, vegetables, livestock, poultry—you want your products sold so the biggest return comes back to you, L * It's a Job Only Partners Can Do Safeway has found a way to sell more farm products. Needless expenses are cut out in distribution. Food gets to consumers at a lower retail price. It meant people can afford to buy more food—and farmers can be paid a better price* V The more you study the set-up today the clearer yon see this fact—the farmer and Safeway are working ai partner* at the job of producing and selling food . -.,. ^ •-' :•$ J - .
