Beryl Plumptre told a news conference that a floor price would help producers know what they will get for cattle sent to market. in would let consumers know what they will be paying for beef over a reasonable length of time. Mrs. Plumptre she released a board study that shows in- creases in beef prices during the last year were caused by higher prices at the farm level and not by increases in the price margins of wholesalers and retailers. Price increases charged by producers were the result of increased grain costs and government actions that the here and in the United Mrs. Plumptre said.

U.S. cattle have been banned until they can be cer- tified free of the growth hor- mone diethylstilbestrol a growth agent linked with cancer. The 1973 price freeze in the U S. also drove up prices. Farmers held cattle off the market until the freeze was lifted. That action affected Canada since really a North American for beef. Mrs. Plumptre ssid the sup- ply of cattle will increase this and result in softening of retail This will be caused by farmers fattening cattle over a longer period us- ing hay instead of high-priced grain.

Such action would lead to lower prices this but higher prices in three years when the reduction in herds might result in demand ex- ceeding Mrs. Plumptre said. Analysis of prices in the To- ronto region show that price .margins implemented by wholesalers and retailers had not contributed to the sharp rise in prices in recent years.
