10 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Big Soybean Crop Under War Need AMES--A gigantic year-round sale on oilmeal is in the picture, to make sure that it does not pile up in crushing plants. But the nation's oilmeal supply, biggest in history as it includes Iowa's 3u-million bushel crop of soy- beans, will be enough to Galance only about 84 per cent of the feed available Tor livestock this year. That's the picture presented by Iowa State college agricultural economists Geoffrey Shepherd and R. C. Bentley. * ¥ ¥ Soybean meal will sell in Iowa for about $35.50 per ton bagged at the mill while local supplies last, and -up to $39 or $40 if imported from other areas by feed dealers, per month from November on, but the total rise on the 1942 crop will not be greater than $2 per ton. Soybean meal is a bargain at these prices. If fed in a balanced ration, at any figure up to $47 per ton, it is cheaper than the tankage and corn it replaces. It appears that feeding of lambs in western states will be under that o£ a year ago. Shipments of feeder lambs into the corn belt during October were the largest on record for that month. GEE! DR.

At the recent Chicago market fat stock competition, the wartime edition of the world famous International Live Stock exposition they won all firsts in the hog carlot division and the grand championship over all breeds with the 260 pound Berkshires shown above. The Hoffmans had twice previously won the international carlot championship in 1939 and 1941, but never before had anyone won all firsts. The brothers' farms near here look not unlike thousands of other farms of the state. No special hog raising equipment is used. All of the Hoffmans' hogs are pure bred Berkshires. Farm People Ready to Aid in Rationing ' With home-produced poultry, eggs, cottage cheese, beans, peas and soybeans to serve as alternatives, Iowa farm families are ready to take the lead in the nation - wide share - the - meat program. H o m e slaughtered meat much a part ol their sharing allowance as the meats they buy at the market. The program arrecls all beef, pork, veal, lamb and mutton, according to Miss Frances Het- tier, extension nutritionist at Iowa State college. The variety cuts, like tongue, liver, kidneys brains and sweetbreads, how- AKiti . S,a t ms . T.I Senin FRANK J.ENBUSK Tax Counselor Certified r.blir Actinium First Natt B»ak Btde.

Poultry, fish and dairy products also are exempt from the voluntary rationing program which is designed to serve until arrangements for rationing are completed. * * * To avoid waste when large supplies of meat are on hand, as at butchering time, farm families may find it necessary to preserve more meat than is customary. The busy season also ' may necessitate use of more than the weekly allowance to provide sufficient energy for the workers. They should, however, maintain a yearly average of no more than 2\'- pounds per person a week. The sharing plan is not a result of a shortage of meat because the 24-billion pound supply is'an all-time record but to a large increase in demand. Two factors contribute to the abnormally high demand: 6V- billion pounds required by the armed forces and for lend-lease and increased civilian demand arising out of higher incomes. Since the military and lend- 2ease demands are met first, a sharing plan and eventual rationing are necessary if all civilians are to receive their share. * * * Two and one-half pounds arc allowed in the share plan for persons over 12 years of age who are not vegetarians, or elderly persons who would not normally eat 2!i pounds a week Children under G years of age ore allowed % pound and children from 6 to 12 years 1'i pounds a week. The number of cattle fed during the 1942-43 season will be larger than a year ago.
