\ arger Beef Supply is Expected in Iowa This Year Than During 1975 By Joni Keith (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES - Iowa cattle producers can look forward to an even larger beef supply during the Bicentennial year than in 1975, predicts Gene A. Futrell, Iowa State University economist. Futrell also expects a long-range increase in slaughter which would reduce the beef supply and point toward stronger cattle prices during 1977-78. A Jan. 1 inventory of cows and calves on Iowa farms totaled 7.5 million, which is 2 per cent higher than the 7.35 million of a year ago. An estimated 2.2 million calves were born on Iowa farms during 1975 — 5 per cent larger than the 1974 calf crop of 2.09 million. Duane Skow, a statistician in charge of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Statistical Reporting Service, said, "The total inventory is near a record high." But when the number is high, the price is low, he said, adding that the cattle market revolves in a seven-year cycle in which a 1 per cent increase in number brings more than a 1 per cent decrease in price. Although the number of cattle in Iowa has increased, tfie'meat production for 1975 was 17 per cent below the 1974 level. The slaughter of 4.6 million head of cattle and calves brought about 4.97 billion pounds, which is Times Herald, Carroll, la. jr Thursday, March 11, 1976 3 approximately 120 pounds per capita! As the beef supply slowly increases, the price farmers receive for their cattle decreases. In 1975, steers and heifers averaged around $39.10 per hundred-weight compared to $39.90 in 1974 and $44.20 in 1973. Beef cattle averaged $36.81 per hundred weight in 1975, $38.10 in 1974 and $42.80 in 1973. Cows brought $20.53 in 1975, $26.10 in 1974 and $31.90 in 1973. "Cattlemen were making around $25 per head in profits during January." said Dennis Ramsey, marketing specialist for the Iowa Department of Agriculture. Disagreeing with Ramsey. Harold Mindermann, director of the Iowa Farm Bureau's Commodity and Marketing Division, siad, "The cattle market is hurting right now. Cattlemen are at a break-even and.below-the-production cost level currently.' Mindermann said he fears the '' 120 pounds per person per year may be too much of a supply for farmers to get a decent profit. Jox by Thorn McAn.
