I Egyptian President Sadat has Labeling, Cuts, Trimming Shopping for Meat Made Difficult By Al Kwegle Here's a tip for you homemakers the next time your husband with a smug look on his face — complains to you about how much you're spending on meat. U*t him go shopping and try to do better. This reporter tried it. with the benefit of all the advertised price quotations of six stores carried in The Gazette since January, 1973. It was quite an education. At first the assignment looked easy, because meat prices do vary with the season. The status symbol meat, the T-bone steak, for example. Is popular iii (he summer, and demand pushes up the price. Roasts are winter favorites. so the best roast buys should be in the summer. Hams are holiday favorites, and prices move upward then. But there is more to meat pricing than that. Occasionally you can save yourself some money by doing your own trimming You can save, tor example. 4() cents a pound by boning your own loin roast Then, too, labeling is a problem. For example, I had a problem figuring out what a chuck roast was, but then I had the same trouble with ham, ham burger and loins, for that matter. Chuck roasts illustrate the point The hard part is comparing the price of chuck roast in one advertisement with a blade or arm cut chuck roast featured in another advertisement. Then there’s a seven-bone chuck roast and a boneless chuck roast to further confuse matters. The same can be said about the difference between ground b eof, ground chuck and ground round, technically all hamburger. They’ve got to come up with uniform labeling before we First of u Series men do the shopping for meat. Well, we overcame that problem, and we established the cheapest price quotations tor chuck roast at each of the six stores. The lowest priced meat must he the best buy, right? Wrung. Retail meat can be cut up in different ways, so that at times the consumer can be paying for more bone and fat than at other times. The difference in the amount of fat or bone on a cut of meat can mean whether one cut is a better buy over another. “Specials can be misleading,” Eldon Hans, Cedar Rapids area extension livestock specialist, said. “Meat managers leave more trim on their cuts when their margin is tight, and remove more when the price moves higher. “This is one ol the ways meat departments are able to show a profit.” This indicates that some standard government or voluntary system needs to be de veloped to market meat similar to the grade mid yield marketing system used at the livestock market level. The grade and yield system pays farmers for the actual amount of salable carcass meat each animal produces. An animal with a meaty carcass receives a higher price than one carrying a great deal of waste, fat and bone. A similar voluntary system could be devised at the retail level with consumers paying premiums for retail cuts with less bone and fat. One thing that a farm editor of an agriculturally oriented daily newspaper finds is that the price of livestock goes up and down. And there were some sharp (Continued on Page 21A, Col. I). Simon said lifting the embargo would brine a greater percentage of higher-priec foreign oil into the nation, tending to push up prices of refined products such as gasoline. But he declined to say how much the energy office, which controls gasoline prices, would allow the price to rise. The price of gasoline would be higher in areas depending more heavily on imported oil. such as New England, if the embargo is lifted, he noted. No Idea Simon said he had no idea if the embargo would bt1 lifted when Arab oil ministers meet in Cairo Sunday to discuss the question. Asked if he would take the ; post of treasury secretary if it were offered to him. Simon said, “As far as any job in this (government is concerned, I would do whatever the Fret-ident asked me to do.” He said he would do so out of “service to my country.” Assails “Experts” But Simon answered, “I have I no idea" when asked if he j thought his key job us energy i 'chief in effect disqualified him as a candidate for treasury sec-! rotary since it would mean a (Continued: Page 3, Col. 5.)
