On a comparable basis, the Jnited States produced 21.7 billion pounds of beef last year for i per capila consumption of iround 113 pounds. If the same kind of slump :iad occurred in the United Slates--a one-fifth drop from .970--Americans would have iad only 90 pounds ol beef a p i e c e lasl year. Those veighls, incidentally, are based on wholesale carcass cquiva- cnts, not the actual amount of beef sold at retail. As a result of Ihe shortage, :he Foreign Agricultural Serv- ce said in a weekly reporl, Argentine cattle producers have uocn (jetting some of the highest prices on record in that country. By last January, the report said, the cattlemen were get- ling ahout $19.10 per 100 pounds of live weight of animal. More recently, the price has leveled off to about $17, the reporl said. But two years ago the average ,vas $9.50 per hundredweight, a typical price for live cattle in Argentina for some years. Callle producers in the United Slates have had some indirect benefit from the Argentine shortage, if "you read between the lines in the FAS report. "Most processed beef items from Ihe Argentine are shipped to Ihe United States," (he re- porl said. "Traditionally, over 40 per cent of Argentina's canned corn beef and 80 per cent of its cooked frozen beef have hecn exported lo the United Slates." In 1971, the report said, U.S. imports of canned beef totaled 27.3 million pounds, off 53 per cent from 1970. Im- porls of frozen cooked beef were 42.4 million pounds, down 20 per cent. The United Stales does not impart chilled or frozen uncooked beef from Argentina or anywhere in South America because foot-and-mouth disease has not been eliminated from tlmse areas, the report said WASHINGTON (AP) -- Eight 4-H Club members will he formally assigned today lo a port-lo-thc nalion" team at I lie Agriculture Department in opening ceremonies of (he 42m Rodd Moescl, Oklahoma City!
