By 1970, the total is expected to reach 11.7 million, according t(O Dr. R. L. Skrabanek, department of Agricultural Economics and Sociology, Texas A&M University. Dr. Skrabanek has recently made available an analysis of significant changes in Texas' population during the past decade, and he points out that in one way or another, these changes are important to every Texan. A rapidly growing popula- tion—tjhe Texas increase was 24% from 1950-60, compared with 18% for the nation — means more customers for al types of goods and service Also increased needs for edu cation, health and recreationa facilities, religious and welfar services and highway and com munications facilities. All sections of Texas from 1950-60 did not experience th .gain in population. The ana'ly sis shows that 143 counties los population, while 111 accounte for the increase. In genera urban areas grew rapidly while most rural areas showed population declines. Areas with the declining populations are faced with adjustments just as those registering increases, Dr. Skra- banek found. His study points out that for the first time in history, females outnumbered males; that the percentage of people in the under 15 and over 65 years of age groups are increasing faster than those in the more productive ages of life; that whites were inci*easing faster than non-whites and that_ the educational and income levels rose substantially between 1950 and 1960. Organizations, agencies, individuals and groups whose Work involves popiilation adjustment slhould 1 find Dr. Skra- banek's analysis very valuable. Single copies of B-1000, "A Decade of Population Change in Texas" are available from the Department of Agricultura Information, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas New Rex Cotton Seed Due for 1965 Season Seed of a new cotton vari&ty adapted to harvesting by machine, should be available commercially by the 1965 growing season, says USDA. Rex Smoothleaf was slightly more productive than 'the Rex variety and the mechanical harvester picked wp less, trash with it. Though the fibers of the .two are of about the same length, the new variety had a stronger fiber. 11.7 Million by 1970 PAST DECADE OF TEXAS POPULATION CHANGE STUDIED COLLEGE STATION.— How nany hours do you spend an- mally caring for your beef ows? This information should )e helpful in determining how to better use your labor next year, says Tom Prater, farm management specialist with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. Operators who have other en- ;erprises competing with tJheir oeef program for labor, and those that work off the farm or ranch will be especially interested in knowing how much time they spend with their cows, Mr. Trater says. A recent USDA report indicates that about 12 ihours of labor were required annually per cow on beef operations in Texas, says Prate:-. This a- moomts to about 3.6 hours per 100 pounds of beef produced, he adds. The hours required per cow will vary on each operation depending on management, and other factors of production. Texas studies indicate that 18 hours per cow annually are needed in the Blackland area of lihe state; 14 hours on the •Grand Prairie farms, just over 18 hours on the Northeast Tex- as farms, and some West Texas ranches indicate labor requirements of about 10 hours, according to the specialist. In comparison, in the Mountain States such as Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Nevada, about 10 hours are required per beef animal, with 2.4 hours needed per 100 libs. of beef produced. The Delta states of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana require 15 hours per cow anc in the Southeast states of South Carolina, Georgia, Flor ida and Alabama, 14 hours are needed. This shows that Texas' compares favorably with other ibee: producing states In the amoun of labor required per cow fo: beef operations, Prater says.
