Currently, according to a new analysis issued Monday by the department's Economic Research Service, producers are able to get enough for cattle to cover feed costs but are still losing money when all expenses are figured. s The analysis was included in a new report on the livestock and meat situation and involved production costs and other factors involved in feeding cattle in the Corn Belt. According to the analysis — which was based on the current costs of producing feedlot cattle — a producer needs to get $37.52 per 100 pounds for a choice-grade steer to cover feed expenses of feeding the animal since last May. Market prices now are more than that. Looking ahead, the report showed that if a farmer bought a lightweight steer last month and fed it for six months he would need to get $33.88 per hundredweight next May to break even on feed costs. The department projects fed cattle prices at $39 to $41 in the second quarter of 1978. If all costs are taken into account, the price of choice-grade steers would have to be $43.54 per 100 pounds next May for a producer to break even. Not all cattle producers — those who turn out "fed" beef — operate a full six-month feeding program as used by the agency's experts in defining costs of production. But the figures do provide a basis for comparing beef costs from one month or year to another. Thus, according to the report, here are some of the factors involved in producing a 1,050- pound feedlot steer for market next May, based on current costs: Thru Hope Star* A SOfr-pound feeder steer bought last month would have cost 1239.64 at average November prices. By the time the animal weighs 1,050 pounds next May. the producer will have $457.20 invested in the steer, including W7.30 for corn, $29.60 for silage, $26.19 for protein siipple- ment, $9.35 for hay, $10.80 for labor, and $10.78 for interest over six months. Veterinary medicine, fuel, depreciation, death losses, transportation, marketing expenses, management and other items make up the remainder of the $457.20 expense total in producing the finished steer. Thus, the report said, the producer will have to get $43.54 Per 100 pounds to break even on the 1,050-pound steer sold next May. Lorry Flynt quits smut magazine COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Larry Flynt, who says he has undergone a religious conversion, has resigned as publisher of the sex-oriented Hustler magazine. Cynthia Johnson, a spokesman for Husiler, said Monday that Flynt announced his resignation at the staff Christmas party Friday, but withheld public announcement of the decision. Flynt recently promised to change the format of the magazine to advocate healthy attitudes toward sex and discontinue features that display women as "pieces of meat." Flynt says his conversion came about with the help of evangelist Ruth Carter Stapleton, sister of President Carter.

In Washington, United Mine Workers negotiators scheduled more meetings today with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association in hopes of ending the strike by 160,000 miners, entering its third week. Permanent injunctions against violence related to the nationwide strike were granted Monday by Fayctte County, Pa., Judge Roy House to C&K Coal, Glascial Minerals and Chemicky Coal Co. C&K was shut down four days last week, Glascial was closed all last week and Cher- nlcky was closed last week and yestertay, their lawyers said, because of threats and violent acts by hundreds of UMW pickets. The companies charged that the miners roamed the county destroying about $60,000 worth 400 on strike at Crossetl CROSSETT, Ark. (AP) More than 400 employees of the Bemis, Co. here are on strike because of a contract dispute. Employees who are members of the United Papcrworkera International Union are asking for higher wages and Improved pension and hospitallzation plans. Union spokesman Randall Wilson says workers won't accept less than the last two-year contract, which provided for a 10 percent general wage increase. Wilson says the company has offered a 9V4 percent increase for the next two years. Bemis officials say they don't expect an early settlement. The company makes paper bags. "A 'no' averts seventy troubles." Indian Proverb »nd threatening nonunion miners. In Illinois, Alexander County Orruit Judge Robert I^ndsden HiheM a temporary Injunction that limits the number of pickets allowed at the entrance of a coal-loading facility In Metropolis, 111., that allegedly was menaced by some 300 UMW pickets last week. The Injunction restrains the UMW from mass picketing, violence and threats of violence and obstruction of travel to and from the Cook Coal Terminal. Th« damage done by the pickets kept the terminal closed Monday, and officials were unsure when It would reopen. In Hwrlsonvtlle, Ohio, the 170 pupils of an elementary school •voided a second forced vacation Monday when striking min- era agreed to allow a truckload of coal through to the school.
