Efficiency to Decide Cattle Feeder's Profit Plager Says Pneumonia Top Disease in '48 The coming year is likely to be one in which the cattle feeder's profit will depend largely on his efficiency rather than on price margin, the Cerro Gordo mamm^- Beef Producers association was warned Tuesday evening. More cattle carcasses were condemned by government inspectors at the Horniel packing plant in Austin, Minn., in 1948 than any other type of livestock, reported Carroll Plager, Hormel's chief cattle buyer, as an indication of what the degree of efficiency was. One in every 118 cattle carcasses was entirely condemned by the inspectors, according to the government records, he said, and more cattle were condemned for pneumonia than any other cause. Emaciation was 2nd and inflammation of the womb, 3rd. Emaciation Is 2nd Pneumonia also was the chief cause for condemnation of swine, lambs and veal, Plager told the beef producers. Emaciation was 1st for sheep and 2nd for veal. One in 936 swine was condemned, 1 in 505 sheep and lambs and 1 in 361 veal. Pneumonia was not seasonal, he added, being highest in June. Cattle feeding is one of the best ways of maintaining fertility on North Iowa's farms, Martin Fabricius, Osage banker and former Iowa State college instructor, told the beef producers at their banquet at the All Veterans Social center at Clear Lake. The banker can help the feeder by keeping posted and advising the farmer on the type o£ feeding best suited to his particular farm, Fabricius pointed out. The 10 year averages show that the last 3 months of the year are the best in which to buy feeders, he said, while about August is the best San Juan Post Gives $120.75 Annual Chest Contribution Made San Juan-Marne post 733 of the V.
