4-C—LUBROGK:iXVALANCHE.JOURNAL-~ Saturday Morning, April 5, 1975 P®rk Production Emphasized B.y KETII HENLEY A-J Farm Writer 'LAMESA (Special) — producers must increase Pork their emphasis on more efficient production as feed c>sts increase, a. South Plains Development swine production meeting was told here Uvs week. Dr. Gilbert Hollis, nren swine specialist with the Texas Agri- cultural Extension Service at Lubbock, said the importance or production costs has overtaken that of maximizing gains. "Since 1973, pork producers have faced the highest, most erratic feed prices in history," he said. "The recent softening of the grain market has everyone in animal agriculture encouraged and all are anxiously hoping to see further reductions during the 1975 harvest. "Undoubtedly, with a good crop this year, feed prices will be reduced, at least temporarily!" the specialist said. "However, the increasing world demand fo- both grain and high protein meals for hu man food and the pressure to export agricultural products to gain on our balance of payments strongly suggest that the relative price of fecdstuffs in the future will be higher than n the past." Hoilis said there are several alternatives that can aid in im>roving production efficiency, 'hey include culling the lowest >roducing sows and increasing lie number of pigs per sow an- ually. . • "These are not new but they lave new importance because f the cost-price squeeze," Hol,s noted. Removing the lowest produc- ng sows automatically increas- s production efficiency, he aid. However, the economic dvantage of this practice is ffset partially by the increased ixcd costs each pig must ab- orb because of not using facili- cs to full capacity.

(Staff Photo by Terry Davis) Firm Plans New Texas Pipeline HOUSTON (UPI) — Texas Eastern's board of directors las announced plans to construct a 300 mile, 14-inch pipeline from the company's ;erminal at Beaumont to its terminal hear El Dorado, Ark. George E. Kirby, Texas lastern president, says the new pipeline will parallel the company's heavily Used 20-inch pipeline and immediately ' in crease the terminal capacity between the two points from 225,000 barrels a day to 285,000 barrels. It ultimately wil increase capacity to 350.0C bar.rcls a day, he-said. Texas Eastern plans to begin construction immediately wit c o m p 1 e t i o n scheduled in December. The cost win be $4: eld more pigs annually per ow, the swine expert pointed ut. "Increase the ratio of sows to Its as much as possible," Hols advised. "Select and keep ie high producing females." He said decreasing the far- owing interval and improving reeding efficiency also will in- rcase pig numbers. Discussing the use oC swine nanure as a fertilizer, Dr. John weeten of College Station, ex ension agricultural engineer, aid attitudes have shitted drastically" in the past year r two. Economic studies of a dec de ago convincingly showed value of manure to be less lan hauling costs," he said. However, the picture has hanged. Supplies of inorganic ertilizer have been limited and ic cost has multiplied, the engi- cer pointed out. "Thus we need to reevaluate ie relative importance of ani nal manure as an economic puree of plant nutrients," he aid. Sweeten said the value ol manure can be determined on ie basis of production or fertil ty. The production basis indicates low much forage or grain can je produced using , manure, compared with no fertilizer or :ommercial fertilizer alone. The fertility basis concerns he apparent fertilizer value of manure based on its nutrient Live Cattle Futures Finish Mixed 'CHICAGO (CNS) — In a session, filled with technical j»yra-' ttons, live cattle futures closed mixed Friday on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Prices closed mostly higher after a late rally pushed the market to highs of the day. Rapid filling of stop-loss orders placed above the $41.10 per hundredweight mark in June sparked advances. A steady to lower opening led to easier levels through most of Uie day. Futures became more volatile late in the session when daily lows were penetrated. This stimulated technical buy- Ing and drove prices sharply above earlier highs. The late rally knocked many local positions out of the market. Late soiling forced June down from 541.60 to $41.10, closing at up two cents from Thursday. Spot April slipped two cents, the only contract to lose ground. Volume was moderate with RBOO trades. • Total meat production under federal inspection for the week was estimated pounds by the at 619 million Department of Agriculture. The figure is one per cent above a week ago and seven per cent below a ear ago. Pre-weekend short-covering stimulated a late advance in ,ive hog futures. Trading in a narrow range, the most active June contract posted a 100-point a in. Distant December gained only 20 points. Some observers noted Jhe weakness in the December contract apparently \vas caused by spreading against the nearby s. Other months ranged from 32 points higher in April t 0 90 in July. Steady cash markets did not support the nearby April, how- vcr. Opening quotes were mixed and subsequent trading was only in a narrow range.. Local activity was lighter than in recent days, but outside interest increased. New short position holders according to some observers spurred the late surge. Fina volume was estimated at 4.222 vening up. The market ticked' owcr on the opening as a re- ult of carryover selling after 'hursday's limit losses. However, fresh buying adv- nccd the market over the pre- ious resting level. Locals oined various commission and virehouses to give the market modest support.

Soil characteristics slso should be considered when determining the amount of waste to be applied, Sweeten said. "Fine textured soils have slow water infiltration rates, so the amount of liquid waste applied should -be reduced to avoid runoff," he explained. "On the other hand, coarse textured soils, because of their high permeability, can accept higher application rates of liquid waste without suffering runoff." Twenty-eight pork producers and allied industry representatives attended the mcetin; sponsored by extension agents in seven South Plains counties. RECORDS A full lint of Single! and SUfeo IP Aibuim.

Farm Bureau. . Carrol Chaloupka of Dalhart. TFB president, says Wie fcdcra estate tax has become an "unreasonable burden" on thos° farmers and ranchers who wish to keep the family farm o ranch in the family. The TFB. he said, has urged members of the Texas congrcs sional delegation to support bills identical to H.R. 179:;, intro duced by Rep. Omar Burlcson of Anson. Chaloupka said additional sponsors now have introduced similar bills. .THE BURLESON BILL JUKES THE EXEMPTION to 5200,00 a'nd also raises the marital deduction from 50 por cent of Uie adjusted gross estate to 5100,000 plus 50 per cent of the adjusted tbtal value. These provisions apply to all estates. '•. In addition, the bill establishes a procedure that permits farm and ranch estates to be assessed at their value for agricultural purposes, rather than at values for higher uses, where the land lias been devoted to farming or ranching for at least five years. • Chaloupka said Uie bill takes into consideration the inflation tffat has taken place since 1942 when the $60,000 exemption was adopted. WHEN THK PRESENT EXEMPTION was established, he pointed out, land values were low and not many people had to worry about estate taxes. "Today, because of inflation and assessments based on subdivision or other development potential, even an averagc-si/e farm or ranch may have an assessed value ot several hundred thousand dollars," he said. In view of congressional moves to plug what some lawmakers sec'! as "tax loopholes" already in existence, the future docs not Icfok promising for the estate bills, even though the measures hay* merit.
