Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _____________________________________________Thunday- April 27, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD L3 and according to producers., here are some of the reasons why lly HIC SWI11A11T lie" raid Staff Writer With consumers faced wllli llic I ugliest meat pricus in the history of Toronto mar k c I and mcTcnsing prices on the local scene, coupled with threatened pricing legislation in the United States, Tlic IJcr- aUI soiiglil (lie reasons from southern Albcrtn farmers anil ranchers. Prices quoted on the Toron- to market placed roast cuts at per pound, with ruiudta- priced hfinitnirfier 75 to 00 cents per pound. AcLunl prices in Lcthbridge were unavailable except from a few independent grocers, and comparisons from prcv i o u s years couldn't be traced. The United Slates meat mar- ket lias apparently peaked for bnth beef and pork products, with prices expected to drop in tbo coming weeks. With no drop in the beef eon sumption south of the border amid roars of high prices, the U.S. National Cattleman's As- sociation that a con- sumer boycott against beef pro- ducts would only load to higher prices in other meals. U.S. g o v c r nment officials have blamed the large increase In prices on the middlemen Ihe processors, handlers and retailers. Officials report thai the mid- dleman is an clement which will remain on the meat picture because of Die modern de- mands of the consumer for attractive packaging added to (he increased costs of labor and materials in Llie industry. Thc buyer for a major chain store in Albert a suggested the supply demand cycle was cunsing some real problems with a shortage o( cattle adding to it. He said the gross profit of the chain has decreased due to an increased cost of getting the meat to trie consumer. Another source said the choice red brand carcasses were selling for SCO a hundred- weight, in Montreal, under pres- sure to go higher. With n market pi-ice for steers nt a hundredweight, Ilic packer in southern Alberta pays an average of a hundredweight dressed. By sell- ing all the byproducts of the packing industry, the packer is able to come out about even after the transportation costs are figured. The question posed lo the dis- trict, farmers and ranchers What is ivuising the high price of neot in the stores? James Reynolds of Ponokn (cols there should lie a ceiUnfi price on beef and likely more important, on wages for labor. Improved quality of and inflation in the wage scale is luud considers the middleman part of the reason for allowing people to buy better hiiih prices for Over-fat beef. With a demand greater than Ihe supply, the price for beef just goc.s up. Gcraltl Miller of Fort Mac- rattle also contribute, lie said, which means there is a good deal of the carcass which has to be cut off as waste. MR. FARMER! iMe Hoyt's your ONE STOP for SUPPLIES!
