A move to ban by federal legislation, large scale feeding of cattle as proposed by Iowa Beef Packers for a project at Irvington, and by other groups in other areas, drew an Immediate rebuttal from an IBP official, Tuesday. "What he proposes will result in an artificial restraint on production and a resultant impoverishment of this area," declared Arden Walker, public relations vice president of Iowa Beef Packers at Denlson. He referred to an announcement Tuesday by Pep. Bert Bandstra, Pella, that he has introduced legislation to ban large scale feeding of livestock by meat packing firms. Walker denied any possibility that "packers getting into this area of beef production are going to have any impact on the free market. "By the time we are ready to have 50,000 head of cattle at the Irvington feedlot, our yearly kill will be at 1,3 million. The number of cattle available from the feedlot is simply just not large enough to provide any leverage, "The day cattle are put on feed, we know almost exactly when they will be slaughtered, There is no margin in feeding an animal beyond the point when it's ready for slaughter. "With 68 million people being added to the world's population every year, we will be facing a food shortage and will need every new production method we can develop," he said. Rep. Bandstra insists that "the whole purpose of this legislation is to help assure farmers of a market that is open and competitive and is based on supply and demand." Walker charges that the congressman "is completely lacking in understanding of modern and scientific methods of cattle feeding. "The majority of farmers in the Irvington area no longer believe that our cattle feeding operation will be any threat to them. They realize that our feedlots will provide a tremendous market for grain and that our study of cattle feeding will help them eliminate inefficient methods in their own operations." He added that the congressman (Bandstra) is "unrealistic in the fears he seems to express. The farmers are way ahead of the congressman in understanding modern agricultural methods." Walker said the primary reason that IBP is getting into the cattle feeding business is to supply "specified types of beef for certain large customers." He indicated that some of the firm's customers want light beef and some want heavy. "This isn't something we can depend on obtaining from local producers. We are able to anticipate orders from major customers and with our facilities at Irvington, would be able to fill specialized requests," Walker said. He added that the company would welcome the opportunity to discuss the question before the appropriate congressional committee when Bandstra's bill comes up for a hearing. Bandstra, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, said his Thursday, January Alflona (la.) Upper Pit Matn»«- bill would: . . Ban livestock feeding by packers with more than $1 million in annual gross sales, this also would apply to officers or directors of such firms. . . Prohibit packer-feeding by retail chain stores with meat packing operations. . . Prohibit meat packing firms covered by the proposal from buying livestock for slaughter through contracts with individual farmers that could give packers direct control over the flow of livestock to market. Bandstra said he was unable to find any economic Justification for feeding operations by firms owning processing plants or retail outlets. In 1964, he said, packing firms both fed and slaughtered nearly 2 million head of livestock including more than 1 million cattle and nearly 900,000 sheep. There are strong indications, he said, that feed lot operations by such firms will expand in the future. He took note of a recent announcement by Iowa Beef Packers, Inc. of Denison that it hopes to feed between 50,000 and 100,000 head of cattle annually within two years. "Packer-feeding in such large numbers is unprecedented in Iowa," Bandstra said. "In 1964, according to U. S. Department of Agriculture figures, only 15,800 packer-fed cattle were slaughtered in the state." Bandstra said he hoped for a hearing on his bill within the next few months. AOK'sMet Algona A. 0.
