E. Reed, chief o£ the bureau f dairy industry, Washington, \ C., declared Wednesday. Reed addressed members of ie Iowa Dairy association and ie Holstein, Guernsey, Brown iviss, Jersey and Ayreshire reed associations, all holding leir annual meetings at Iowa late college. Tells Breeding Results Discussing results of the bur- au's breeding experiments- and he co-operative program with tate extension · services to in- roduce the proved-sire system E breeding on a nation-wide asis, Reed said. "The bureau of dairy industry ias now completed 20 years o't 'reeding investigations and the esults indicate that the surest vay for the average farmer to .evelop a herd of cows with in- .erently high average producing bility is through the use of a eries of good proved sires." Sires Improve Butterfat Reed said that the use ot a eries of five proved sires in the mreau's Holstein herd had in- reased the annual butterfat iroduction 52 pounds a cow. Sight proved sires in the Jersey ierd increased the a n n u a l production 40 pounds a cow. As the first step toward the use of proved sires in breeding ap the general dairy cattle of he country, the bureau and tate extension services are co- perating in a program to file a permanent record of the identity ind production performance of each association animal. All non- registered animals are eartagged or identification purposes, Reed said. "The immediate purpose of his program is to get a line on vhat the bulls now in service in he associations are doing in the ivay of transmitting production. This information will be useful n eliminating inferior bulls and n perpetuating and spreading he influence of good ones. "We have no\v tabulated the dam-and-daughter records for more than 2,500 association bulls," Reed said. Plains Are Predicted Competition By LAUREN K. SOTII (Iowa State College) AMES, (IDPA)--Iowa farmers who are perturbed about the increase in corn and hog raising in the south might well take their eyes off the cotton rows and turn to the wheat fields of the Great Plains if they really want something to worry about. For it is in the great strip of wheat and range country stretching from Montana to the Hio Grande that Iowa farmers face their severest competition during the next few years. Some areas of the Great Plains are as dependent on one crop as is the cotton south. And the economic position of that one crop, wheat, is about as unfavorable as that o£ cotton. We've always been a wheat exporting country. But in recent years world wheat production has increased tremendously. Importing countries like Germany and Italy are subsidizing their farmers to raise more and more bread grains-wheat is an essential in time of war. Exporting countries also produce more than they did. This country is going to have to raise less wheat in the next few years. We can either do it the AAA way, by paying farmers to cut down. Or we can do it by letting low wheat prices force producers out of business, with terrific hardship and suffering in the Great Plains. In either case, a reduction o£ cash wheat production in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and the other Great Plains states is going to mean more livestock. Tn addition to the foreign situation, the frequent crop failures in that area are stimulating farmers to diversify, raise more livestock.
