Beef And Veal More Plentiful
In County Pork, Lamb Short Washington, Dec. 4 The Agri culture Department said today the average American probably will aat more beef and veal in 1947 than during any year in the last 37. It said, however, that pork pro duction likely will be somewhat smaller than this year because of last spring’s small pig crop. This will mean less bacon and ham next spring and summer. Lamb and mutton also will be scarcer. The 1946 lamb crop was seven percent smaller than in 1945 and fewer lambs will be grain -fattened this winter for market next spring. The department said near-record cattle numbers will permit beef and veal production next year close to the all-time record high of 84 pounds per person set in 1945. In 1945, however, large quanti ties of meat were being sent over seas to the armed forces and U. S. civilians ate an average of about 70 pounds per person. New year, with exports cut to a mere trickle and the Army and Navy talcing relatively small amounts of meat, per capita civil ian supplies probably will top 70 pounds. The last time Americans could average that much beef and veal was in 1909. The department said both pork and beef prices should decline “moderately” from present high levels when meat production reaches its seasonal peak early this winter. Pork prices may rise again in the spring as slaughter slumps season aUy. Prices probably will continue relatively high until the spring and summer of 1948 when next spring’s pig crop reaches the market. Once beef prices break, they are expected to remain down because of heavy marketings on grain-fed animals. Range cattle have been moving into corn belt feed lots in record numbers since June. Cattle num bers now are large enough to per mit a near-record cattle and calf slaughter without reducing the na tion’s livestock population. Because of a record corn crop and favorable pork prices, the 1947 spring pig crop is expected to be the largest since the record crop of 1943. But this will not mean larger pork supplies until the spring and summer of 1948. Shorts and Middlings Liberal amounts of good legume hay will reduce costs of producing 100 pounds of milk. The recent rise of six cents a pound in butter prices did not con vince all market observers that a higher level for dairy products is to be expected. Some think peak prices are reached. Ohio farmers who employ more than three persons at any time during this year should obtain ex tension bulletin No. 215 from their county agricultural agent. The bulletin cites costs of accidents to farm employees. Farmers who bought Iowa land in the period of high prices in 1925 -27 found themselves going further in debt at the rate of $905 a year until 1941 and were delinquent in interest payments in 62 per cent of the intervening years. Land pur chases in Illinois at the same high level brought even greater annual debt increases. Some Ohio maple trees have four times more sugar in a gallon of sap than other trees which appear similar. Of 349 trees tested in Geagua county, the highest sugar content found in sap was 4.4 per cent and the lowest was 1 per cent. The study is being continued to learn the reason for the variations in the sugar content of the sap from different trees. Rural economists believe there is some level below the sky where consumer resistance to high prices will lessen demand for farm pro ducts. They predict livestock feed ing will be a more profitable farm enterprise in 1947 than crop pro duction, and they expect consum er resistance to high prices to be come progressively stronger as next year advances. Elimination of price controls put marketing back on a supply and demand basis.

One instance mentioned was in raising calves, especially those barn in late fall or early win ter. Young calves get vitamin A from milk, but, when the amount of whole milk fed to calves is lim ited, extra amounts of vitamin A provided by feeding oils may re duce the number of cases of scours or pneumonia. Winter calves and pigs may need more Vitmain than is supplied wmau'.'g." I.-..!! j.1."...!". _j__ a GENERAL nrini? X. JR JR JRe»JCr -Xj by their feed. Feeding oils will furnish vitamin for calves, and the vitmain usually can be sup plied to growing pigs by including 4 or 5 per cent of sun cured alfalfa meal in their total ration. Since the vitamin content of alfalfa meal varies considerably, use of special vitamin supplements sometimes may be advisable in Ohio winter swine feeding. Experimental work in livestock feeding indicates there is some re lationship between niacin deficien cy and swine enteritis but Ohio tests of using niacin as a treatment for swine enteritis indicated it is no cure for the disease. Doctor Burroughs thinks the niacin re quirement of swine may be high est when their ration is low in pro tein. Ohio livestock rations usually contain most minerals required ex cept salt.
