What are the plans for National promotion of beef in May? These are two of the main topics to be discussed at the third annual meeting and banquet of the County Beef Producer's Association at the Burt high school, Thursday, March 22, beginning at 7:00 p.m.. according to Win. Phelps, Swea City, president of the association. Rex Beresford, cattle specialist from Iowa State College, Ames, will be one of the speaker. Beresford is well known to Iowa cattleman and will discuss the "Outlook-Short Run and Long Run for Beef Cattle." Kenneth Fulk. field secretary of the Iowa Beef P r o d u c e r's Association, DCS Moines, will bring greetings from the state association. Fulk will also discuss the plans now being made for beef promotion in May. Tickets are available for .$1.50 each from the following directors of the association: Wm. Phelps, Swea City; W. L. Reynolds, Swea City; Ernest Heidecker, Lakota: Ted Jensen, Fenton; Ronald Christenson, Fenton; R. L. Krantz, Titonka; Carman Adams, Whittemore and Don Warmbier, LuVerne. According to Phelpg the items of business will be election of two directors, one from the northeast area and one from the southwest area. Also, the group will be asked to vote .on whether or not they favor a check off for beef promotion purposes and how much per animal. Phelps said that the program committee had originally engaged Francis Kutish, farm economist from Ames, as a speaker, but a change in plans made it impossi- be to have Kutish, so Beresford was engaged. Beresford has retired from active teaching the past few years, but he does go out to catte feeder banquets occasionally. His nearly fifty years as a cattle specialist with Iowa State College has earned him the title of the "Old Sage of Cattlemen." Phelps urges all cattle feeder and breeders to get their tickets right away. A vendetta is an obligation of a family group to avenge a wrong done to a family member.
