Withholding Of Livestock Underway By The Associated Press The meat industry, described as demoralized by sales losses, showed some signs at the start of the week that livestock were being held back in selectee market areas. Spokesmen for some Midwestern markets said Monday that cattle and hog supplies were down. However, the Agriculture .Department said total slaughter figures indicated no significant holdback by farmers. Many industry officials said it would tafte several more days to determine whether a withholding action, called in hopes of driving up depressed prices, was really being applied. The action is seen as a temporary tactic as the livestock industry presses the government for loan guarantees and reimposition of import quotas to ease an economic situation escribed by one feedlot operator as "a bloodbath." John McGregor, owner of one d of Washington's largest feed- e lots, said he will not withhold r cattle, calling the withholding d effort a move "by men without r much more to lose. Our goal is to be one of the survivors." *· Bill Marshall, supervisor of ' the Kansas City livestock mar- 1 ket, said a check of 11 Midwest '- operations indicated t h e . n u m s her of cattle Monday was a most 50 per cent below the total '. of last week. ° OFFERINGS DOWN ,, A U.S. Agriculture Department spokesman in Omaha, a Neb., said only 3,000 cattle j were offered at the market on n Monday, compared with 6,500 r or 7,000 on a normal Monday. . Elsewhere, receipts were . lighter than normal at several , stockyards. Jj The call to withhold the meat from market came out of a meeting in Nebraska over the , weekend in which cattle feeders '· agreed not to sell steers of 1,200 e pounds or l e s s for under 40 0 cents a pound. Many cattlemen refused to '. T . support the plan, and reports '^ out of Kansas, Montana. Wash- n ington, Utah and other states said no such action was being ' r contemplated. Wholesale prices have been n ~ declining for months and caltle- men, particularly the feedlol " operators who fatten the cattle s - their animals for less than they w paid for them. a The House Agriculture Com le mittee has scheduled for today hearings on the depressed live n- stock prices. Four measures le that would aid meat producers by offering government guaran ^d tees of loans are before the r- Senate subcommittee on agri It culture credits. lit · Springdale Woman Injured In Wreck te Orbie Marie Kcttncr, 45, o Id Route 2, Springdale, was treat ay ed and released at Washingtor n- Regional Medical Center thi er morning for injuries receive* in a two vehicle accident a id the intersection of Hwy. 68 am ng Parson's Road in Springdale. nd Trooper Charles Brooks sai g- the accident occurred when Mrs of Kettner, who was traveling is- west on Parson's Road, ar, to parently pulled into the pat en of a car driven by Buran Harp on 67. of Route 2.
