High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 20, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Ii High Point Enterprise sunday october i it changing diet of cattle May reduce shortage by Don Kendall a form writer Washington api record High Grain prices the past year have caused such economic disturbances in the livestock Industry that agriculture i department of finals frequently talk the Otto future production of beet and milk from forage instead of Corn a few years ago. It was almost heresy for i Quot sea to speak of anything except the importance of feeding Corn based rations to brei and Dairy cattle rut that was when u s feed Grain production a climbing much faster than requirements now with iou pounds of live steer Worth Only enough to buy about to bushels of Corn instead of the 20 or 30 bushels in the recent past. To sea experts Art speaking out frequently on substituting grass Hay and other forage for Grain in cattle feed although sales of Grain led cattle base dropped Sharp this year a meaning Choice and prime beet in retail stores a Slaughter pm Quot Grasst attuned a cattle has More than Otlet those declines. The term grass fattened is lot precise since it refers also to cattle Torii have had some Grain but not the Lull feeding normally associated with production re finished Choice and prime beet this Dorsi t mean that the Day of feedlots and Knish de cattle is Over. It in t. Assistant Secretary of agriculture Richard l Fenner told the american meat Institute in Chicago last week Quot bul we May see cattle carried longer on grass or roughage before they hit the feedlot or with lev Grain being used to put on the finishing layer of marbling and Quality that adds the flavor and texture that americans have come to he said Feltner cited statistics to illustrate what has happened n the cattle business As nigh teed costs have forced cutbacks in fattening pens. Ranchers have boosted cow herds tremendously in recent years last Jan i. Fenner noted the u s beet cow inventory was 42 9 million Bead representing a jul per cent increase in five years the build up. Be said. Resulted in older cows making up Only i per cent of total beet Slaughter in 1972 and 19 per cent in 1973. Cows comprised 21 per cent of beet output in 1965 to. Now. He said.

Week nights 7.30 p m department s cooperative state research service Hodgson has held his Basic views tor Many years but the recent Grain crunch and decline in feedlot production has Given him new impetus. His main thesis is this a the ruminant livestock Industry meaning primarily beet and Dairy cattle but not Swine and poultry a is the Backbone of the Rural Economy and is at the heart of economic development in the Countryside today s beet Supply could be produced with Only one halt the amount of Grain now ted cattle and thus a huge tonnages of Grain could be diverted to other uses such As Export or human food a moreover Hodgson says if a stepped up program to enhance Lorage As a cattle feed is carried out. Total beet output could be increased to meet increased demands by 1985 a a beet producers would be insulated i rom the whiplash effects of fluctuating Grain Hodgson told a livestock feeders clinic at Fargo. N.d., last week. A forages have demand Only As livestock feed and prices would be Little affected by outside he said a a beet Industry geared mostly to forages would have built in product Ion Cost Hodgson said a greater Reliance on forages also would promote Wiser land use and minimize what he called a agricultural insults to the environment a we would be using the ruminant animal to its greatest potential a converting Plant materials Man cannot utilize into food products that Are both highly valuable and highly prize a he said. Hodgson said the task of switching to a greater Reliance on forages tor meat production will not be easy. He said recent statements by other us a officials that More cattle Are remaining on grass longer Are True a but there is a dangerous implication Hodgson said a that is that there is an unlimited Supply of Lorage just waiting to be fed to he said such is not the Case Hodgson said Federal cutbacks on forage research have been substantial in recent years another complication involves a tendency among Farmers to shift forage drop land into Corn soybean and wheat production when prices tor those crops Are High this tendency could be thwarted if we develop and use the technology to make economic returns from forages As great As those from grains a Hodgson said.
