The exports of this feed product are going to set a new record this year. Headquarters of some of the nation's largest alfalfa dehydrating companies are in Kansas City with one office being at the Kansas City Board of Trade.

In barring aliens from holding jobs in the federal government, Ford urged Congress to come up with legislation that will say exactly what rights aliens can exercise within the United States. Ford's decision affects millions of aliens who otherwise might have sought federal jobs all over the country, ranging from janitors to secretaries to middle-level administrators. The order signed Thursday prohibits government hiring of aliens "except where the efficiency of the service or the national interest dictate otherwise." The President's decision comes after a Supreme Court ruling last June struck down a Civil Service Commission regulation that also banned permanent resident aliens from government jobs. Those barred from federal employment are foreigners authorized to live in the United States but who do not obtain citizenship. The court's decision was based on the justices' view that the Civil Service Commission, lacked the authority to enact such a regulation. But the court suggested that Congress or the president could issue such a ruling and Ford's action Thursday took advantage of that invitation. this marketing year — April 30,1976 to April 29,1977 — will approximate 300,000 tons to Western Europe, which would exceed last year's total by 210,000 tons. The figure for last ye&r also was a record. Prior to i last year, alfalfa pellet exports to Western Europe were of little consequence. Most of the increase in exports this year is accounted for by the shipments to Europe. The obvious reason is the 1 dry weather which ap- pa»ently has cut forage crop yields even more than those of grains. Also, European farmers utilize forages to a greater extent in relation to grains in their feeding operations than do their American counterparts. To some extent, all feeds are in competition with each other. But the alfalfa interests in 'Kansas City are of the opinion that the dehydrated pellets are being used in Europe to replace domestic roughages rather than as a grain substitute. In essence then, they don't believe the pellet exports are cutting down on corn shipments. than all of the U.S. From 1955 until 1972, prices on alfalfa pellets at Alfalfa Center ranged in price from $30 to $50 a ton. Then, in 1972, when prices on everything else began to escalate, alfalfa pellets followed suit hitting peaks of $100 a ton in the winters of 1975 and 1976. Summer prices are almost always lower than those prevailing in the winter. Late this summer, prices were quoted around $95 a ton. Isolated trades have been as high as $101 a ton for immediate delivery. In recent weeks, the pellets have been moving by barge down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, or by ships on the Great Lakes on their way to Europe. Prices at Rotterdam have ranged from $130 to $165 a ton. When it is considered that there still must be added costs before the 10.

If the alfalfa pellet exports reach the estimated 300,000 tons, the overseas business will account for about 20 percent of this year's U.S. crop estimated to be around 1.5 million tons. i Obviously, the demand from Europe is in competition with that in the United States. In recent weeks, hay prices in recognized market areas have been about $10 a ton higher than a year ago. Most American hay is utilized on the farms where it is produced or nearby. 'Hay is a bulky product to move. Most that is sold off farms is baled. Actual prices on baled hay vary considerably, depending upon hauling costs, supply and demand. The USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service Office at Independence, Mo., reports on prices received for alfalfa hay at "Alfalfa Center" in the Platte Valley of Nebraska; South Central Kansas at Lamed; Southwest Kansas, Garden City; Chino Valley, Los Angeles; and the Antelope Valley-Mohave' Desert area. Prairie hay prices are quoted from the Elkhorn Valley of Nebraska and Southeast , Kansas. The most influential pricing ' point, the Kansas City authorities aver, is "Alfalfa Center" in Nebraska, which is Plant FmntioH h\/ a railroad sidin e P° int west of ndlHCmpliea Dy Kearney. There is an alfalfa dehydrating plant there, also. Dehydrating plants buy the alfalfa in the fields, dry the green hay and produce the pellets which are much easier shipped than either the bulk hay or bales. The standard pellets contain 17 per cent protein with some higher quality going as high as 20percent protein. In the U.S., the pellets are used in mixed feeds to comprise about 1 to 3 percent of the ration. The pellets are used mostly in cattle rations, with some going to hogs and poultry. | Alfalfa always has been highly regarded as a feed, and animal nutrition authorities contend it has unidentified growth factors, which means they think it has something in it that is unusually good for animals that they can't define. Apparently, alfalfa is regarded exceptionally high in Europe, the Americans say. As evidence, they cite the fact that although the dehydrating process was developed in America, today France and Rumania together have a greater dehydrating capacity IF YOU are a friend or a relative of an alcoholic the Al-Anon family group may he able to help you solve your side of the problem.

Ironically, high prices in the U.S. are not booming the production of dehydrated alfalfa pellets. The reasons are fundamental. No. 1, the dehydrators use gas as the fuel for drying. Since gas now is expensive and hard to come by, few if any new dehydrators are being built. Second, the dehydrators must compete with other users of the hay, those who use it in bulk or in bales. And third, alfalfa must compete with other crops for land usage, and this has limited total acreage in hay for several years. 20.

(AP) — A telephone call warning of a bomb at the strikebound Rodeo Meat Co., plant caused the evacuation of the plant's management employes Thursday afternoon before police determined it was a hoax. Management personnel' searched the plant in vain for about two hours after a police dispatcher received the call, and ernployes returned to work about 2 p.m. The management workers had been trying to operate the meat packing plant to get rid of livestock already in the plant when union employes walked off their jobs early Wednesday. The plant is being struck by about 600 members of the Amalgamated Meatcutters Union Local 340 as part of widespread strike by the meatcutters union. The Arkansas City plant is a subsidiary of Morrell Meats of Chicago, whose nine plants across the country are striking. Other meat packing companies have also been hit by walkouts. A spokesman for Morrell indicated negotiations were conr tinuing, but he said he had no idea when a settlement would be reached. Keys to Meet Freeman on TV TOPEKA, Kan.
