Action In Support Of Cattle Prices Editor, Upper Des Moines: Cattle feeders today are complaining bitterly, and justifiably so, about losing money. Many "bellyache" about low prices but very few submit any IDEAS as to "what to do about It." I have jotted down a few thoughts, present a remedy, and explain It. I Invite comments, especially If some disagree with me, and would welcome any other suggestions for a different solution. The present Feed Grain Program guarantees to the wheat growers a full parity price on all wheat grown and consumed In this country. If this same guarantee applied to beef cattle our beef cattle producer would be getting some $6.50 per cut more than they receive now. Cattle prices are too low; they are $6.50 per cut less than parity which is supposed to be a just price. This deficiency of $G5 for each 1,000 steers is the main cause of our financial trouble. In recent years many cattle men attributed the low cattle prices to Imports, but after all this controversy and resulting quotas apparently the volume of Imports Is not being moved downward much, If at all. The low price of cattle is not being solved. In Great Britain the farmers constitute only 4% of the population yet produce 50% of the food consumed. The other 50% is imported and most of it duty free. Living costs for her consumers are thus kept low. But the government does not allow these low cost imports to financially damage her own farm group. For some 19 years the method used to guarantee a just Income for her farm group is by paying the farmers the difference between the market price and the parity price. The law further provides that no change downward in any one year can be made In excess of 2 1/2% and even then can be made only after consultation with and approval by agricultural producers, which in practice Is the three farmers' unions In that nation. The Farm Bureau, the N.F.O. and the Grange, do not exist. In this country we consume all the beef we produce. (Note: while we do export some beef, we import more than we export). The per capita consumption of beef in the United States is high - some 106 to per person per year. Undoubtedly without the government welfare programs the capacity to buy beef — which is more expensive than potatoes, beans, rice at the per capita consumption of beef and the price of It would be much lower than it is now. Another factor that exerts a downward pressure on cattle prices Is the phenomenal increase in a whole host of scientific innovations that force output of grains and animals to exceed effective demand. Economists inform us that when supply exceeds effective demand by 1% the price goes down about 5%. Our government is the only organization we have with the power to effect some restraint on this excess output. Our farm programs - with their incentive pay to effect the idling of millions of acres of productive land-have thus prevented a disastrous drop in farm prices-especially cattle and hog prices. Livestock associations have usually opposed these governmental financial aids on subsidies to nearly all the non-farm groups. Philip Stern in his book "The Great Treasury Raid" amply documents from U. S. treasury reports, how various arnniervi- ments to our revenue laws ox- empts from tax literally billion;. of dollars of net income - particularly in the oil business. To exempt a person from n just tax - or to collect it and return It as a subsidy - the result is the same. It's a subsidy. It is rather strange and rather unexplainable why cattlemen's associations never even mention it but concentrate their criticism on any governmental protection of income for farmers. However, cattlemen in 1965 and 1966 strongly supported U.S. participation in cattle prices by demanding a reduction in the volume of imported cattle and beef with rather fruitless results. A reason usually given by cattlemen for opposing governmental protections of cattle prices Is that It will result in bad controls and loss of freedoms. But these fears are greatly exaggerated. Federal aid in price protection of farm products Including cattle has been In effect for some 19 years in Great Britain, with no criticism or complaint whatever. As of now there appears to be no sentiment or demand for abandonment or even any reduction in that price protection. In this country we have had Federal aid for research, experimentation, and salaries of Instructors for some 100 years at our various land grant colleges. At Ames, la., it is the Iowa State University. Just recently I received a letter from the president's office stating that In all that time there never has been a single instance of any unwise restrictions. It is a mistake to allow unfounded and exaggerated fears to prevent the establishment of justice in income for our food producers. If one reads the first sentence in the Federal Constitution he will see that the "establishment of justice" was a main reason for the very existence of this government In the first place. Very truly yours, G. W. Patterson Swea City Man Is All-Event KG Champion A Swea City man, Bill Pech, placed first in All-Events at the annual State KC Bowling Tournament at Cedar Rapids March 5 and was awarded a trophy for his efforts.
