The over all objective of this research is to improve the efficiency of beef produc- tion and the quality of the key areas where the consumer has the most to gain. Production efficiency leads to lower "'production costs, which helps the tight budget situation. With a lower cost input at the beginning of the processing cycle, lower con- sumer costs are evident at the consumer's end of the cycle. The beef industry, from producer through processor, is one of the most responsible segments of business for seeking improvements. These improvements are aimed at increasing dollar gain from the operations of the busi- ness. Better methods of beef pro- duction dead to more best This fits in with the structure of the industry, wluch is based on supply and demand. Better methods re- sults in more beef and lower prices, while at the same time permitting increased profits. The quality aspects fit in almost secondarily, giving the consumer a belter pro- duct at a declining price, or a much better product at a small rate of rice increase. While all the research varies in importance with the problem In the industry at any given time, it >s aimed at the production efficiency fac- tor produce more product for less money. Work is being done in the area of grading standards. Tliis allows for a more posi- tive identification of carcass quality. When this is done, carcass- es will be put into categories which will provide payment to the producer in relation to the quality of meal he has produced. The consumer will also be able to purchase meat of dif- fering quality standards ac- cording to the price he is able lo pay. Research into v a r. i ous breeds of cattle is being und- ertaken. Crossbreeding pro- grams are evaluated with an Meat prices seem to havo been on the Increase at a far greater rate than olher food prices during the past few years. But when com- pared with other com- modities, have Ihey really? Canadians eat more meat than people almost any- where else in the world. eye lo performance trails, growth efficiency and repro- ductive capabilities. The idea is to produce a type of animal which is suit- ed to certain environments, to provide Ihe production ef- ficiency factor while main- taining quality. This work allows for im- provements to existing cattle populations and an evaluation of new breeds. Researchers will never find and recently Canadian ranchers have not been producing as much meat as Ihe country has been ealing. Herald reporler Ric Swi- hart examines the Can- adian meat situation in a series of arlides this week. an ideal animal because there are too many variances cultural eat- ing habits, consumer demand and costs. Specific feeding melhods are being tested for both eco- nomic and quality factors. Researchers try to relate the amount of meat produced, to Ihe aTnount of feed and care needed lo get an animal ready for slaughter. If the animal can be slaughtered with less feed costs and less labor costs, the meat shuold cost less in Iho stores. Another research project which could cut meat costs to the consumer because of the lower input cost relationship with lower end product costs is the intensive growth rate studies. This is an extension of the feed lot concept ol confining a large number oi animals in a small space, providing a "beef factory." This cuts down on animal losses due to environmental problems and disease, giving a lower cost to the consumer. Research into disease con- trol, body disorders and in- sect infestation is continuing. Government legislation is aim- ed at enforcement of research recommendations tor the pro- tection and economic well- being of the producer and consumer. Canadian producer losses for bloat, a feed based prob- lem which can cause death to the animal, was estimated at million in Canada last year. This type of loss is paid for in part by the con- sumer. Warble fly control is im- portant because the packing house operator has to cut large parts of meat out as waste, adding to the cost of the meat. Also, the hide is lost to production and lakes away another profit factor for the packer. Feed materials constitute a substantial part of the pro- duction costs. A least cost ration study has shown that feed need not be made up of. set ingredients. At times, certain feed in- gredients sell for less. Re- searchers are trying to find out how they can substitute cheaper materials in Ihe ra- tion while still maintaining comparable growth results. This would lower the cost of Ihe animal. The announcement of tho new distillery for Lelhbridge has spurred a new research project the use of distillery by products for feeding cat- tle. It has been found that by products, used in lha right proportion, can be ficial to htc beef industry. The low cost of the cattle food can be passed on to the consumer. WheUier the results of these projects and many more like them can be passed on to the consumer will likely remain a matter of merchandising techniques. The whole retail system, tempered by public demand, could bring the price of beef down for the consumer. Jr. Achievement grows in 1972 The number of Junior i Achievement companies will increase to seven from five in the 1972-73 lerm, it was an- nounced at the annual general meeting of JA board members Wednesday. The two new sponsoring com- panies are The Herald and Im- perial Oil Ltd. Herb Brennan, Calgary pri1- gram coordinator, said that with the increases planned for other centres, there would be 58 companies in the south Alberta division next year. South Alberta centres are Lcthbridge, Calgary and Tabcr, with Camrose beginning next year. Junior Achievement will be- gin its fall term Ocl. 3 and con- tinue to April 18. Dates for sev- eral conferences and training sessions have been set. Something new scheduled for the 1972-73 session is a charter- ed flight to England for about 40 Achievers. The flight would leave April 23, and the group would spend 12 days billeted with members of Junior Achievement in London. The board has yet to decide ,o what use a grant from -he department of culture, youth and recreation will bo >u'.. The grant was awarded with the purpose of financing a summer employment program 'or the Achievers, but Leth- bridge has no such program. Elected officers for the rt'w session are John Tildes, pres- ident; Jim Dunstan, vice-pres- ident; Wilf Bowns, secretary; and Neil Ward, treasurer. Dennis Pommen will continue as program director.

Students and faculty should have course say By RUDY HAUGENEDER Herald Staff Writer Tile traditional method of de- 'eloping post-secondary institu- ion. curricula should be scrap- ped, Dr. Bruce Bray of the Un- versity of Idaho said Wednes- day. Curricula should be the co-op- erative effort of people repre- senting the entire cross-section of the post secondary popula- lon. "They have every right to mow what's going on." A panelist during the first day of the Pacific North West Conference on Higher Educa- tion, Dr. Bray said many ad- ministrators are "unable to in- He also supported a recom- mendation by Dr. Harold L. Hodgkinson of the University of California, Berkeley that the existing grading system be scrapped. He said many post-secondary j-oblems could be eliminated ;hrough a co-operative effort. Dr. Nels Hanson, president of Centralia Community College and a staunch advocate of the exisiting post-secondary admin- stralive method, explained his unyielding stance. An institution depends on leg- slators for support and they in turn are conscious of demands of the public, he said. Separate schools name superintendent The appointment of a new superintendent for the Leth- bridge separate school system was announced today during a noon-hour meeting of the school board. Ralph Ilimsl. a former sep- arate school superintendent in Prince Albert and Moose Jaw, Sask., has been employed the Saskatchewan Newstart project for the past 4% years. Mr. Himsl will assume the new post Jari! 1, 1973 from Bob Kimmitt, who is retiring at the end of this year. The new superintendent holds degrees from the University of British Columbia and the Uni- versity of Saskatchewan, and has started his doctoral work at the University of Toledo. Mr. Himsl has 23 years expe- rience in education, 10 as a classroom leaeher in elemen- tary and high schools. Through the current struc- ture, which is headed by administrative presidents, the tools are there to carry out the public's wishes, Dr. Hanson claimed. Campuses also have powerful soards comprised of elements of the public to watch over pub- lic interests. Any massive disruption of this design could lead to added public resentment and fewer funds. "Responsive Institutions, need structures which are capable of making he said. The panel, formed to discuss Dr. Hodgkinson's concepts, saw Dr. Robert D. Peck, assistant director of Oregon State Edu- cational Co-ordination Council, steadily dismember the radical ideas. He also rebuffed Dr. Hodgkin- son's claim that non-govern- ment supported private and in- dustrial schools do not receive assistance. They are either directly or indirectly funded through a variety of American programs, such as G.I. assistance. The government provides funds for armed service personnel to at- tend schools. Accreditation of these institu- tions would do nothing to alien- ate the problems brought on by technological changes, he add ed. The only Canadian on the panel, Randy Thiessen, a Uni- versity of Alberta student, said less money should be channel- led towards the construction of costly buildings, "especially in view of the student enrolment drops." He lashed out at what he call- ecd unequal distribution ol funds, where some classes find 500 students befcg laught by one professor while others are on a one to one ratio. "Less architecture and more professors" was the Iheme of his panel contribution which brought on a visible positive re- GIFTS FIT FOR A KING!

Panel Chairman Dr. Richard 5. Landini, academic vice-pres- dent of the University of Mon- tana, shot down the co-opera- .ive curriculum idea. He agreed, however, that the university's image has been arnished and suggested that perhaps it occurred because :hey allowed their "virtues to Decome defects." In further discussion which criss-crossed the philosophical paths of education, he said the need is "to train people to do, think and reason" and so on. Dr. Hodgkinson reiterated that post-secondary schools are "to large." From the conference floor Dr. Jchn P. Schaefer, president of the University of Arizona, of- fered: 'Univeristies are considered the dumping ground of sooietie's problems, when they are not university problems." They are to provide an calional and intellectual func- tion for post-university prob- lem solving, he said. Dr. Peek said "universities ought to be in society so don't get trapped outside. DELUXE.
