On-farm cattle testing Offers opportunity On-farm beef cattle testing is open to all cattlemen in Fayetto county this fall, County Extension Director M. C. Wangsness reports. The Iowa Beef Improvement association directors designated qualified weigher-graders in all parts of Iowa. This makes it possible to extend the program to move cattle herds. Ninety-four herds are signed up for on-farm testing in Iowa now, according to Extension Animal Husbandman Robert C. de- Baca of Iowa State univertsity. Fifty herds have been on the program for the past two years. However, the number could not be expanded until this fall, when the state-wide roster of qualified weigher-graders was developed. DeBaca says the program is to enable Iowa producers to increase the profitability of their purebred herds, to produce quality meat and make quality meat available on a basis that is profitable to all segments of the beef industry. All weigher-graders arc experienced with livestock, are available when called by breeders and will be available to start work immediately. AH records W'll be computed on Iowa State university electronic machines. The association directors are preparing a imigram enabling testing pvodvuvis to obtain progeny carcass nvoids in addition to tiio records already provided in Uie ou-faim testing program. Each producer will select the weigher-grader In 1 prefers. Producers will pay the weiRher- grader's mileage to their farms and will pay for the testing on a sliding scale ranging from $10 for one to five calves tested to JfiO 75 for 100 calves or yearlings tested. Weigher-graders within reasonable driving distance of Fayette conn•>• are E:nl Gibson of Fayette, I.,. C. Klink of Littleport and Clifford Iversnn of Waterloo. On-farm beef cattle testing has been under wav at the Stock Brothers farm at Oelwein, and Olis Rothlisberger farm at Elgin since spring of 1!)(!0, Mr. Wangsness stated. Any Fayette county purebred beef producers interested in the. on farm testing opportunity can obtain detailed information at the extension office in Fayette.
