Japanese Market Could Support More Feedlots DENVER (AP) - Colorado Agriculture Commissioner Clinton Jeffers says the Japanese market for prime beef grown in Colorado is large enough to support as many as 100 independent cow-calf operations and a feedlot equivalent of 20,000 head. Jeffers said Monday that Colorado packers hope to sell to Japan a quarter of fhe 44 million- pound quota of fed beef from the United States. The high share for Colorado stems from a similarity between Colorado's top quality To replant with freeze outs, to beef and the Kobe beef produced reharrow after a pelting rain,!in Japan, Jeffers added.

Melva Tc jwaile, Winter Wheat For Shows Drop From WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department forecast Monday a 1970 winter wheat crop of 1,094,340,000 bushels, a boost of three per cent from April but five per cent less than last year's production. There was no estimate for spring wheat but officials have said that based on farmers' planting intentions , this year a crop of 298 million bushels is possible. Thus a total 1970 wheat crop of 1,392,340,000 bushels is indicated. This would compare with 1,458,872,000 last year and the record of 1,576,251,000 bushels produced in 1968. The Crop Reporting 'Board said 33,624,000 acres of winter wheat were indicated for harvest this year, compared with 36,696,000 in 1969 and 42,428,000 in 1968. Government officials have cut Calving Difficulty Linked To Fertility, Scientist Says HESPERUS -- A rarview of 2,971 calving records here at Colorado State University's San Juan Basin Branch Experiment Station shows that calving difficulty is a major factor in reduced cow fertility. This fact was emphasized in a rescrch report presented by Dr. J. S. Brinks, CSU associate professor, animal science. He was speaking to ranchers attending the annual Beef Cattle Improvement Day and Auction : ield at the station. Brinks said the calving records had been collected from the station's herd during the past 16 years. Eighteen lines of breeding were involved. including 16 inbred lines and their linecrosses by line of inbred sires, an outbred control group and a group sired by linecross bulls. Most of the calving difficulty is experienced by 2-year-old d a m s . Three-to-four-year-olds had somewhat more difficulty than 5-to-9-year-olds, and 10- year-old and older dams again had more calving difficulty, the scientist S3id Complications during par- turtion were higher (10.5 per lave a history of low calving difficulty. This based on data :hat revealed a strong genetic influence in this area. By following these tips, Brinks believes ranchers will cut their economic losses jeeause of calving difficulties arid realize a reduction of iroblems over a period of years. The. CSU animal scientist ndicated thai more research is needed to determine the proper evel of nutrition of dams prior o calving and to develop management practices which may help reduce calving dif- ficultJGS Label Change E: Banned Weedki By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Most of 270 commercial weedkillers banned from sale because an ingredient was considered an imminent hazard to human health 1969 national wheat acreage allot, ments in an effort to curb rising supplies. This year's allotment of 45.5 million acres 11 'tor . all wheat is (he smallest 'in history of federal programs. The possible 1970 crop total compares with an estimated use --domestic plus exports--of around 1,380,000,000 bushels of wheat for the fiscal year ending June 30. Officials estimate winter wheat yields this year at an average of 32.5 bushels per liar- vested acre., compared with 31.3 bushels harvested last year. Orange production was estimated at 184,000,000 boxes, compared with 181.4 million forecast in April and Hie record of 188.88 million last year. The grapefruit crop was put at 53,800,000 boxes, compared with 52.3 million estimated in April and production of 54.17 million last year. Lemon output was forecast at 16,800,000 boxes, compared with 16.8 million in April and 15.81 million produced last season. The first estimate of 1970 late spring potato production was 20,151.000 hundredweight, compared with output of 21,290,000 hundredweight last year, the report ,said. KARACHI - Ex Pres.

The products were suspended April 15 after the Agriculture Department said new information indicated the ingredient-2,4,5-T-- caused birth defects in laboratory mice. A department spokesman said the suspension was ordered on the basis of the products' labels --those including instructions for use around homes, lakes, ponds and ditch banks were banned. But no suspension was levied against 2,4,5-T--containing pesticides used lo control weeds on millions of acres of range, pastures, and highway right of ways. So, if a product conaaining 2,4,5-T were used mostly for such an exempt purpose but list- ed instructions for home use, the ban could be lifted by simply changing the label. "Only between 5 and 10 per cent of the products suspended were strictly for uses prohibited by the order," an official said.. One source said the 'Agriculture Department, along with officials in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, are attempting to push applications for new registration through as soon as possible so manufacturers can take advantage of the brush-spraying season now under way in the Southwest.
