.*«* LIQUID FEED BETTER BEEF ... MEAT WITH LESS WASTj FAT! AN IMPORtANT MESSAGE TO EVERY CATTIE FEEDER WITH AM EYE TO FUTURE GAINS , MpflEA'FEiB BEEF iir receiving an ever-increasing patronage where it counts — at the point of sale. s Presented below are a few local-level comments which give a cattle raiser some idea of the trend ! of thinking on the matter of beef —. from the: market, the housewife and the restaurant and cafe proprietor. This demand is only in its earlier sfages. BUT THE WORD IS SPREADING. i .MOREA LIQUID FEED_ is the practical, proved way to supplement roughage and gram in cattle feeding, to produce quality meat with less waste fat. It is easy to handle, saves time in any season, and fed free-choice provides profitable, ibw-cost feeding. It pours and feeds well even in cold weather; it does not attract flies or rodents in warmer weatfier. . "Proof of Pudding Is In The Eating ** , ^ „ IOWA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, VOL. 98 - NO. 43 Corn Support Stays At $1.12 ABOVE: Jim Schneider, head of meat department at Hood's Super Valu in Algona inspects Morea-Fed beef being raised in Kossuth County. Some of these animals have since been custom-killed, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture graded, and have wound up In tender beef cuts in many homes in this area. *• * «, ""i** 1 "* * *** U " t 7 jt r ,* T " "*( **** **•*•* -^* " * *r" » *" "**" *" •" —*»" —• * *— At Hood's Super-Valu store in Algona the acceptance of MOREA-FE.D BEEF has been tremendous. Its lender texture and marbling with less watte fat on the outside of the beef gives the purchaser a far better 'value, and the cattle-raiser an increasing market for his MOHEA-FED cattle. Morea makes meat — not waste' fat I Harold and Letha Van Allen who operate Van's Cafe at the junctions of U.S. 18 and 169 just north of Algona have been serving MOREA beef over a considerable period of time. They buy it by the quarter, and Harold says "One thing about Jt. not a lot of watte on it, and it is more marbleized and tender." The cafe, recently remodeled, has a seating capacity of 150. They plan their menus about a week ahead, and Morea beef plays an important part. "I think it's real good beef", is the way Harold Van Allen summarizes his experience with Morea beef. i Issue Warning On Need Of Storage Space The final support rate for 1961- corn in Kossuth County will remain at $1.12 per bushel, Richard I. Anderson, Chairman, County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee, has announced. This is the same as the minimum rate set in advance of the season to help growers plan their operations. ' Legislation authorizing the feed grain program for the 1961 crop provided that support for corn could be set at a level noi less than 65 percent of parity. Since the national support price of $1.20 per bu. set in advance of the season is 74.1 percent of the October corn parity price- above the minimum legal level no change is being made^ in the 1961-crop corn support as previously announced. The Chairman explained that farmers who cooperated in the 1961 feed grain program are eligible for price support on theic share of the farm's "normal" production of corn. Producers who have not been notified of the normal production figure for their farms may obtain the figure from the County- ASC Committee. Mr. Anderson pointed out that favorable weather throughout much of the corn-producing area is pushing corn yields to record levels, which may prompt farmers to re-examine their storage situation for this year's crop. Help in obtaining adequate farm- storage facilities is available to producers through the Government's farm facility loan program, under which producers may borrow up to 95 percent of. the cost of farm storage structures costing 40 cents per bushel or less. SUPPORT ANGLES Soybean growers should con- sider using price-support loans and purchase agreements before selling their soybeans at less than support prices this fall, Richard I. Anderson, Chairman, County ASC Committee, said today. One of the main purposes of the price-support program is to protect producers against unreasonable price declines," the chairman declared. "Holding the crop in storage until some time after harvest—when market offerings are normally heavy—should promote more orderly marketing and more stabyized prices." The support rate for 1961-crop Grade No. 2 soybeans in Kossuth County is $2.25 per bushel. Loans are available for producers who require mohey at harvest time and who can meet loan-storage requirements,' and purchase agreements provide price insurance for other producers. Under a purchase agreement the Government agrees to purchase at the county support rate* —after the loan maturity date— a quantity of the crop up to a maximum specified in the agreement. The . maturity date for oans on 1961-crop soybeans is May 31; 1962. SET WOOL INCENTIVE PAYMENTS FOR 1962 A shorn wool incentive price of 62 cents per pound has been announced by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for the 1962 marketing .year which begins April 1, 1962. The mohair support price is set at 74 cents pei pound. The 1962 price for wool is the same as the first 7 years of tha program—from 1955 through the 1961 marketing years. The mo hair price is up 1 cent from the 73-cent, level for 1961. Payments to producers for the 1962 marketing year will follow the same methods used for the current 1961 year. Shorn wool payments will be equal to a percentage of each producer's cash returns from wool sales. The percentage will be that which is required to raise the national average price received-by alL producers for shorn wool, up to the'in- centive price of 62 cents per pound. Lamb payments wilj be made S.U.I. Journalists flan U.D.M. Newspaper Study The Algona Upper Des Moinos is one of iwo weekly newspapers in Iowa ihai has been selected for special study in the month 'of October by ihe Stale University of Iowa school of journalism in classes of community Journalism. The project will include a thorough analysis of ihe month'* issues, followed by a visit to Algona of an assigned student to study the publishing operation "on the ground." The student will also make a community survey. The purpose is to give students a chance to get into a typical Iowa weekly newspaper plant and get a complete picture of its operation, according to Lester Benz of the S.U.I, faculty, who teaches community journalism. to each producer who sells lambs that have never been shorn. The payments will be at a rate per hundredweight of live animals marketed to compensate for the wool on them on a basis comparable to the national average incentive payment per pound 01 shorn wool.

On such a program, cattle usually need only half as much grain to produce the same grade and weight as on a conventional plant protein. On, heavy grain feeding with Morea supplement, the cattle use the grain more efficiently to produce quicker, better finish. When roughage or grain has no serious imbalance of minerals, feeder cajttle average up to 2 pounds Morea liquid feed per day. Morea liquid feed is. the only i feed supplement guaranteed to contain ethanol, It also contains urea nitrogen, phosphoric acid, trace minerals and molasses. The molasses is added by your local mixer who delivers Morea liquid feed to you. Fed free-choice, Morea supplement speeds up rumen fermentation and aids breakdown of cellulose and other fiber. Cattle and sheep on a Morea feed program produce more high quality meat and milk on maximum roughage and minimum grain. Vegetable prptejn supplement is not needed. Feed costs are low I THOUSANDS OF SUCCESSFUL STOCKMiN ARE NOW USING MOREA LIQUID FEiD TO SUPPLEMENT GRAIN AND ROUGH AGE.
