BLYTHEVILLE (£SX.) COURIER NEWS PAQIKIN1 REVIEW AND FORECAST More Beef Due on Market This Year By GAYNOR MADDOX CHICAGO — (NEA) — Look for lower prices on grass- fed beef for the next several months. This should be the result of a more than normal slaughter of dairy cattle due to reduction of milk support prices and an increase in pork supplies. Translated into family dinner, senting meat packers, cattle producers and distributing agencies, such as the American Meat Institute, the National Livestock and Meat Board and others, are cooperating with the U. S. Department of Agriculture in a 'nation-wide consumer drive. Between Sept. 30 and Oct. 9 these agencies will propagandize you, the consumer, to eat beef stew, pot pies, and other dishes using low cost beef. Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson is for the program. Press, radio and TV food editors have been asked to help. terms that spells more pot roasts, stews, hamburgers and fraukfur- ters lor the same amount of budget dollars. Even under favorable weather conditions, there will be a lot more beef in the market this year. Although most breeders and packers Interviewed are cagey about pre- dieting any price drop, simple arithmetic and Federal livestock reports point to lower prices. * * * Wholesale livestock and meat prices at Chicago in July, according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture, showed a drop of 8.3 per cent on "good" beef and a drop of 15.9 per cent on "utility cow" beef. Prime steers dropped only 6.5 per cent. P. C. Smith, Swift & Co.'s vice president in charge of beef, veal and Iamb, stated cattle slaughter volume this year so far has running about 12 per cent over last year. "The result is record supplies of beef for this season," he added. "And prices of beef are fully re- fleeting the heavy supply." Carl F. Neumann, general manager of the National Livestock and Meat Board in Chicago, foresees tremendous supplies of grass fed beef on the market. "Grass fed cattle are so dependent on weather that disaster conditions can develop if the drought continues to grow worse," he said. * * * Neumann would not speculate on the effects such conditions would have on retail prices. The record supply of beef under normal weather conditions, plus the steadily increasing numbers of grass fed cattle being liquidated ahead of time because of drought, h:-,ve breeders and packers worried. In an effort to unload more of this extraordinary supply into retail channels, organizations repre- Wesley Hardenbergh, president of the American Meat Institute, predicted more meat will be produced in the United States this year than ever before in history. "Approximtaely 39.7 million head of cattle and calves are expected to come to market in 1954 — almost three million more head than in 1953, .the previous all-time high," he said. However, the number of cattle to come to market during the next HEADING FOR YOUR DINNER TABLE — Here's some of to- few months will be greatly in- day's record beef supply, ready for slaughter in a Kansas City pen. creased if drought conditions in cattle raising areas continue. So far, Arkansas, Georgia, and Alabama have asked to be declared "disaster areas." Texas, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico have been designated as "emergency" areas. Although Benson says the drought situation is not as bad as last year, many cattle raisers say it is worse. The Secretary does admit the situation is growing increasingly serious in some areas and that corn, pasture and other feed grains have been hard hit in the past few weeks. Widespread but spotty rains during the past week in grazing areas in Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas ers' fears a little. However, a spokesman for one of the largest meat packers in the country warns that drought conditions may still develop that would cause a rush of cattle to market. Besides drought conditions, two other factors can contribute to lower beef prices in the near future: First, an increase of 13 per cent over last year in the pork supply. Pork chops can now compete with beef for stew and pot roast. Second, the unusually large numbers of cows being slaughtered by dairy farmers. Dairymen say their herds are far too large. "Many more cows will be sent to time. And remember that about 35 per cent of our total beef and veal supply comes from dairy farms," a high official in one of the most influential dairy products companies said. "When the Secretary of Agriculture reduced the support price on milk from 90 per cent to 75 per cent of parity, many marginal farmers, decided .to cull their herds," he explained. That means still more low cost beef on the market beside the At University Experts Will Be There to Talk Over Problem/ FAYETTEVILLE ..

Because CYANAMID defoliants are true defoliants, they act like a light frost, removing the leaves without burning the plants or bolls. And CYANAMID defoliants offer a wide margin of safety in application. Slightly more than the suggested dosage will not freeze the leaves to the plant or burn the bolls , . . and if slightly less than the recommended dosage is applied, you can still get reasonably good defoliation. CYANAMID defoliants are nitrogen-based materials which leave no undesirable, detrimental or damaging residues. Whether you require a dust or a spray, you can get equally effective results with either of these CYANAMID defoliants: AERO* Cyanamid, Sptcial Grade — the original defoliant in dust form. Use where dews are present to activate the chemical. AERO* Cyonamid, Solublt —a highly effective spray defoliant where conditions favor a liquid application. Arrange now to defoliate the Cyanamid Way for cleaner cotton and a higher price at the gin. Write for new, fully illustrated leaflet.

Morgan was in conference this morning and could not be reached for comment on Reasoner's statement that he would remain on the job. Reasoner said that "someone" had told him that "they can't do this to me." Hood C. Lough, manager of the Madison County office at Huntsville, said that he was resigning because he could not carry out his duties effectively while "political pressure" was being exerted. Secretaries Resign Lough also said that his secretaries, Mrs. Veta Tassey and Mrs. Wallace Smith would resign. Lough has 13 years of service in federal jobs. Before joining the ASC, he was with the Production and Marketing Administration. Morgan said that no other county managers had been requested to resign, but he said there may be such requests in the future "as we check into the figures." "If the men involved insist, we can bring the facts into the open . .-. " Morgan said. "They involve facts and figures over the past several years and some of the figures are astounding."
