ZENDER'S Quality Clothing For Men And Boys I^ V "IS EDITH AND TORSTEN LAGERSTROM Pioneer Hi-Bred Corn Company last week added anew dimension to Its long-time work in agricultural research. Pioneer has purchased one of the nation's top Angus herds, which will become the nucleus of an intensive beef-breeding research project. The herd, owned by Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Lagerstrom of Burt, Iowa, has been under complete production testing for 10 years. Included in the purchase were 200 head of cattle, plus detailed data on performance, progeny and carcass grading compiled by the Lagerstroms. Pioneer leased the Lagerstrom farm, Toreby Farms, and will initiate its research studies there. John Airy, Pioneer's treasurer and director of corporate planning, calls the step "a natural for us." We have an exceptional staff of plant breeding and poultry breeding specialists, whose know-how in genetics can help in the beef project. "We at Pioneer believe our company can contribute to the beef industry of the future. We'll be breeding for animals which best combine maximum growth with top carcass quality. In marketing, we hope to be able to provide a dependable source of superior cattle, backed up with scientific production information." Mr. Lagerstrom explained: "We felt that more extensive and intensive research on herd genetics was needed. Pioneer is steeped in genetics skills. With its resources applied to improving beef animals, a new page in beef breeding can be written." The Lagerstroms have produced two of only 50 bulls in America designated as "Golden Certified Meat Sire" by Performance Registry International. Their Black Tor was the first Iowa bull of any breed so certified, and their Torbey Marshall was the second Iowa Angus so named. Both bulls are now held jointly by Pioneer and by Curtiss Breeding Service, Inc., Carey, Illinois. The Lagerstroms have reached one of their initial goals with the herd: That of producing 1,000 pound calves in 12 months under "ranch conditions." The calves are not creep-fed. The cow is expected to "get the calf going" toward its weight goal. Under the performance testing program, normal weaning weight of calves in the herd has been increased by 17 per cent in the past 10 years - from 435 to 510 pounds. Weaning weight, yearling weight and extensive carcass testing have provided the basis for herd improvement. Selectivity has been so careful that only about 10 per cent of the calves were considered for breeding stock and herd replacements. Pioneer officials indicate that "the development work already done with tills herd - makes it one of the best herds of Angus cattle In the country. This base will enhance our opportunities to exercise leadership and contribute to the industry."
