Demand for Beef Is Increasing WASHINGTON (AP)—The Agriculture Department said today the nation's farmers will have to convert a lot more crop land to pasturage in order to meet the growing demand for beef in the next seven years. The department said the number of beef cattle must be increased at an annual rate of 5 per cent for the nejrt seven years, The number has been increasing n little over 4 per, cent during the past three years. By 1970, the department said, the nation will need 9D.5 million head of beef cat tie compared with 74.9 million now. But to produce this-number of cattle, there will have to be an annual increase of 14 million acres of grazing land, the department said. It takes 5.4. acres of pasture or grazing land to produce the equivalent of a year's supply of feed for one animal. The government is now operating a cropland conversion program which is expected to move 10 million acres of land from crops to grazing next year- and around 40 million by 1970. But this 10 million acres would provide only about 70 per cent of the increased feed needed for expanding beef production. next year FRIDAY Sat. & Sun.
