Over Hit Backward Fence If llttt IftANOtN Ae,tflt Why does calf Hv*r cost more per pound than beef liver? Why does any meat cut cost more or less than another? The amount available for sale helps to determine the price tag. However, retailers arrive at a price according to the demand you and other consumers put on the various cuts. Merchants price the lesser known cuU or the cuts BeHer Cattle Year Is Seen Cattlemen will look back on 1983 as a poor year for feeding cattle, but this year may be better, indicates Dr. R. L. Coppersmith, Kansas State University Extension livestock market- Ing economist. Feeder cattle costs are down from last year, so even with fed cattle prices at about the same level as 1963, cattle feeding profits will be higher. The picture for lamb producers is also encouraging, Coppersmith says. Since the number of lambs on feed is down and a smaller spring lamb crop in 1964 is expected, there should be relatively high lamb prices during the coming year. The improved profit outlook for cattle is attributed to a decline in cost v/f feeder cattle. Prices for feeders have been running $3-$6 below a year ago. Replacement of feeder cattle during the last quarter of 19S3 was down; consequently, there shftild be some strength in fed cattle prices in late winter and early spring. Imports In 1963 amounted to about 10 percent of the total U. S. production. Imports probably will remain high during 1964 even though they may not increase in amount. Sheep .and lambs on feed Jan. 1 decreased 11 per cent from 1963 total in 28 states. The Western States were down 14 per cent, while the Cornbelt States showed a decrease of I per cent. Lamb prices should show some strength during the next few months. Spring lamb* will sell for a good price and will probably top out at around tht 123-J24 level in late spring. 4-H Club Notes EAOIR HAVERS The regular monthly meeting of the Eager Beavers was in the Finney County Courtroom on Feb. 4.

Flank steak usually sells for less than a rib steak. When you know all the' cuts of meat and how to make good use of them, you can have variety and make the most of your meat dollar. * * + If you it* grapefruit on the market labeled "tree ripened," it is. If this same fruit looks green it isn't. The fruit inside is sweet and juicy. Grapefruit tends to acquire the greenish look When it is left on the tree after it is mature and ripe. Russeting, the brownish spots on the fruit, doesn't affect the quality, to choose the best grapefruit, select the ones that feel heavy for the size, and have a smooth skin which is about to burst with the eight of the juice and meat in ide. This is the season for grape- ruit with top quality and low rices. * * * Count on fivt servings per jound from the canned hams'you ee on the market. The hams are recookcd, boneless, cured pork. Some of the smaller hams, under iree pounds, are sterilized and an usually be stored at room emperature. The large hams do eed to be refrigerated. Check the abel to determine if the one you re choosing needs space in the efrigcrator. it * * / Pan or iriddlo-broll any of the ender custs of meat you might roil. When the cuts are extrem- ly thin, panbroiling or using the griddle may even be preferred, anbroiling is also • convenient method to use in cooking a small teak or a few chops. Use this procedure when you do panbroiling or griddle-broil. 1. Place meat in heavy frying pan or on griddle. Cook the meat lowly. The pan or griddle need not be sizzling hot nor is it necessary to preheat it. The meat merely starts cooking more quickly f the metal is warm or hot at the wginning. 2. Do not add fat or water. Do not cover the meat. Most meat cuts have enough fat to prevent heir sticking. If you add fat, you are frying the meat. 3. Turn occasionally. Since the neat is in contact with the hot • hetal of the pan or griddle, turn- tor even cooking. 4. Pour off or remove fat as it accumulates. If you permit fat to accumulate, the meat will fry in stead of panbroil or griddle-broil. 5. Brown meat on both sides. Searing or browning quickly at .he beginning is better. 6. Do not overcook. Season and serve after removing from pan or griddle. 00 YOU WANT SOFT WATER? JOHN TATRO MARMADUKE "Who sold chivalry is dead?" Hal Boyle Sayi — People Prefer Different Times NEW YORK (AP)—Curbstone comments of a Pavement Plato: Every person has a time of day when he feels at his best. Some are "morning people." Some are "afternoon people." Some are "evening people." 'And some ' are "midnight people." Each type reaches an energy peak at that period of the 24- hour daily cycle to which he is mysteriously best adjusted. These orbits of human individuality should be taken more into account. Our typical work day, for example, is singularly ill-designed to fit the needs of human nature. It runs about 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Your morning p/r»on sprints through his task until noon, but after, lunch he sags listlessly and can't wait for quitting time. On the other hand, your afternoon person arrives late to work, still yawning, dawdles long over his coffee break, paws listlessly at the papers on his desk. But when be returns from lunch he becomes a living ball of fire. The ideal solution, of course, would be to run the office on two shifts, one that started earlier for the morning people and one that started later for the afternoon people. Wheat Taken From Storage During the past three months there have been approximately 9 million bushels of wheat removed from CCC bin sites throughout Kansas. Approximately 1V4 million bushels were sold to local elevators and the balance is being shipped to terminal positions for export purposes when needed and to fill other commitments for Commodity Credit Coropa- tion. Gilbert W. Egbert, chairman of the state ASC committee, said a major portion of this wheat hasbe en in continuous storage since 1953 and has been under the direct supervision of the local ASC county committees in 66 counties. In general, he added, the quality of this wheat during the period it wajn in storage improved. This was evidenced by the grade for which settlement was made with buyers and the grade of the grain when it was delivered to the warehouses for shipment to terminal space. The current cash price of wheat has brought about many repayments of iarm storage and warehouse storage-loans. If the repayment of loans continues, it appears the takeover of wheat by COC this spring will be one of the lowest in. the history at the price support program. Many producers realized a profit by repaying their loan and selling tbf wheat on the cash market.
