Negotiations for services Avere entered into with several men who had had experience on game farms in eastern states, also with ]Ir. J. R. Argabrite, a resident of California, who was a successful raiser of pheasants in Ventura County. This resulted in engaging the services of Mr. Argabrite in September, 1908. He was immediately detailed to examine and report on a number of different locations that had been offered for the estab-. FiG. 32.

Kpt. 1!)U).) A location was finally selected one mile south of Hayward, Alameda County, and a lease executed in November, 1908. A stock of pheasants was immediately secured together with four dozen Hungarian partridges. During the ten years of its existence the game farm reared and distributed several thousand pheasants, many quail and some wild turkeys. The expense of the farm seemed to be so out of proportion to the results obtained and the location so unfavorable for game propagation that the farm was finally abandoned in the fall of 1918. In the last years of its existence it was used more largely as an experiment station to determine the possi- bility of breeding different species of game birds and mammals..
