Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTHMIBCE HERALD TKutuioy, Ftbraary 4, American economics professor predicts steady beef growth By STEVE BAREHAM Herald Farm Writtr BANFF "The beef indus- try in North America is going to grow rapidly and steadily during the Dr. Thomas Stout, professor of agricultural economics at Ohio State Uni- versity, told 330 delegates at- tending the 7th annual con- vention of the Western Stock Growers' Association. He said conservative esti- mates made recently by the United States department of agriculture indicate per capita consumption will increase to 130 pounds by 1980. "In the U.S. alone, this will mean a 35 per cent increase over 1968 or about seven bil- lion he said. The Canadian increase is ex- pected to be about three bil- lion pounds. Dr. Stout said it took 14 years, from 19M to 1968, to ob- tain the last seven billion ton increase. He warned that even if ev- eryone in the industry is aware of the needed increase, gen- erating it may not be easy. "Last year 90 per cent of all steers and heifer slaughter in the U.S. was fed beef, so a higher rate of beef production cannot be obtained if all the cattle in the country are being fed he said. One cattle voice sought at Banff meeting Gilchrist new president BANFF Tom Gilchrist of Milk River, Wednesday was elected president of the West- ern Stock Growers' Association at the annual convention held here. Mr. Gilchrist replaced Dr. Gordon Burton of Claresholm. Other officers elected were Eion Chisholm, Okotoks, first vice president, and Neil Har- vey, Calgary, second vice- president. The association resolved to study the possibility of forming one organization that would represent all cattlemen in Al- berta. The move was taken follow- ing the approval of a resolution which said there is "increasing duplication and problems caus- ed by a number of organiza- tions representing cattlemen in the province." It was also pointed out in the resolution that individual cat- tlemen have little direct voice in spending by the Alberta Cattle Commission. Another resolution dealt with the implementation of a com- pulsory warble fly control pro- gram. Past president Burton said the only way to succeed in eliminating the pest complete- ly is with province wide pro- grams to ensure uniformity of treatment. Another resolution dealt with problems encountered by cat- tlemen when receiving com- mercially frozen semen. A motion was passed where- by the Semen Producers Asso- ciation will ask government to establish semen test facilities to ensure the quality of the pro- duct. The Western Stock Grow- ers' moved to support the as- sociation in its endeavors. Considerable debate arose from a resolution which would request the government to re- vert back to a flat assignment e for each parcel of crown land. A delegation of stockmen aid present regulations affect- ig assignment of crown leases one party to another al- government to collect one alf the price paid for the crown lease. The delegation said thai crown lease rights are old together with deeded land he assignee does not know ow much the government wil ollect until after the contrad f sale has been signed. A final resolution gained wide acceptance from the dele- ates, when it was resolvet lat the association encourage overnment to provide strong r deterrents against damages inflicted by picnickers, sports ten, hikers and skidooers. It was proposed this be done y imposing larger trespassing fines and by stricter enforce- ment of existing laws. Don't drop guard cattlemen warned BANFF The Canadian meat market may be taken over by synthetic materials, according to Frank Payne, head livestock division, Can- ada department of agriculture, Ottawa. Mr. Payne speaMng at the annual convention of the West- ern Stock Growers' Associa- tion, said the future of the cat- tle industry in Canada is bright, but pointed out some areas where cattlemen should be careful. "From 1955 to 1969, beef pro- duction in Canada increased by over 70 per cent due largely to changing managerial and pro- duction techniques, he said. "In the last decade, the num- ber of fed cattle has doubled.'" Mr. Payne said strong con- sumer demand is likely to con- tinue, but warns cattlemen not to drop their guard. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Denial Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 He said the possibilities con- tamed in the meat industry are very attractive and many peo- ple will be "scrambling to ge in on the action." "The fight in the marke place has just begun, and all meat producers have a com mon enemy in synthetics. "If the meat industry lets up their vigilance, these substi tutes will take he added U of L enrolment is University of Lethbridg spring semester enrolment this year is full-time students "including two late, late, lat according to of L registrar Jack Oviatt.

He added that the beel in- dustry will have to undergo some drastic changes in the 1970's, and that these changes will emerge from the stress of an industry too lucrative to be left to beef alone. Others will rush to assist and compete including other meats, other agricultural com- modities and other markets." He cited the broiler industry of 20 years ago as an example of what could happen to the modem beef industry. "Twenty years ago, everyone thought the broiler industry was uniquely different from the rest of animal he said. "Today, less than 50 firms control two thirds of the na- tion's production of broilers while uncontracted, indepen- dent producers account for only about 10 per cent." He said that 10 years ago no- body thought commercial cat tie feedlots would ever be a se- rious threat, but today than one per cent of U.S. feed lots produce over one half the fed beef, and less than three dozen lots produce near- ly 10 per cent. Dr. Stout said this was ac complished by people who un- derstood leverage as well a livestock, financing as well as feeding, people who found cas flow more interesting than cash payment and integration more rewarding than indepen- dence.
