I ho parl of the house wife can be blam- ed for the in- creased meat jj budget for to- _ _ day's food consumer. The key to balan- cing a growing meat budget is the use of less tender and cheaper cuts of meat, such as chuck roasts and steaks. But. tlte housewife is not able to take advantage ot this por- tion of the beef carcass be- cause she doesn't know how to handle it. For this reason, the cook refuses to buy tiie cheaper meat, buying instead the more expensive cuts because they are easier to cook, budget receives is the pur- chase ot hamburger and slewing meat. A beef carcass dressed out returns about 59 per cent of the live animal weight. For a live, pound steer, 'the carcass would weigh about 590 pounds and in the meat cutting process, about 25 per cent is lost to fat, bones and shrinkage. Tins leaves 440 pounds of meat which can he packaged for sale. The less tender cuts make up about 20 per cent of the saleable meat, with ham- burger accounting for anoth- er 20 per cent. 1 This leaves only 35 per cent of the saleable meat in the category of tender, ex- pensive cuts. A survey conducted by The Herald late last month show- ed the counter price of the cuts catorized as tender or choice averaged about per pound. The less tender The only compensation the cuts averaged about 95 cents per pound. With more housewives buy- ing cuts from a small per- centage of the carcass, the price per pound is increased. The law of supply and de- mand prevails, with an in- creased price as the supply of the choice cuts diminishes. Experts in meat merchan- dizing feel that many con- sumers also have a feeling that the less tender cuts of meat are something less than desirable. Tiiis is a fallacy, since meat from a given car- cass tends to hold the same nutritional value regardless of where it comes from. Home economists contend that ii housewives understood how to use proper cooking methods, they wouldn't bo afraid of less tender meat cuts. The very fact that many housewives have tried poorer quality cuts and had poor results a few times due to the improper coo king methods is responsible for the preference for more expen- sive meats. The actual "art" of buying beef is also lost on today's consumer. For the most part, buying beef is a complex pro- cess that can't be solved by a dash in dash out ap- proach it must be studied. Most women don't have an interest in meat purchase, and the many men who buy the groceries don't have the time to go into the intraca- cies of pricing it out. Beef is graded on the basis of conformation, the factors of which don't have much significance toward the fla- vor and lenderness so impor- tant to the consumer. Statistics show that more than 50 per cent of Canada's beef requirements are suppli- ed by choice (red brand) and good (blue brand) graded carcasses. AH supermarkets in Lethbridge apparently sell only these grades. The carcasses graded stan- dard (brown) and commer- cial (black) may be avail- able to the consumer who is economy minded. This buyer can shop around making his own judgement of tender- ness. The consumer can detect good quality meat by more than just the price tag. Tests have shown lhat the darker- colored beef is tenderer than lighter colored cuts. Cuts of meat with bones which are red at the cut end and have fat which is white to cream in color indicates a youthful animal. This Mill lend to be tenderer. Yellow fat in beef usually indicates a lower quality. A knowledge of which part of the carcass certain cuts are derived from will assist the homemaker in her plan- ning. The cuts from the car- cass which are less tender must be cooked in ora of many ways suitable for them. These cuts can also be iden- tified by carcass bone slruc- turc. The tender cuts will have a T-bone, rib bone or the wedge bone within the meat, while the less tender cuts will have a round bone or blade bone. Charts and bulletins are available from the district home economists. Several factors which can help to cut costs include: available cooking time determines the consumer's choice of cuts. If there is more than an hour, house wives should' plan on roasts. If less than an hour, sleaks, chops, hamburger and fully- cooked (morj expensive) culs are needed. grinding of chuck steak and roasts for ham- burger or culling up for slew meat can save money. making use of all por- tions of the purchase is nec- essary. Bones make soup. The greatest saving for the consumer can likely te found in bulk buying. This means the added expense of a home freezer and Ihe outlay of a large amount of money for the purchase of a portion of a carcass. Given a pound sleer, with 440 pounds or saleable meat on the carcass, the con- sumer would have to pay 75 cents per pound for it cut, wrapped and frozen for his home freezer. The initial outlay of for the carcass is not possible for many buyers, and this keeps them tied to the regu- lar purchases at stores. Using the present prices for variaus cuts, the cost to the consumer would be much higher if an identical amount of meat were purchased over the counfcr in stores. A breakdown of percentage of culs from the carcass ap- plied to prices found during the survey would bring Ihe store price for Ihe 440 pounds of meat lo compared with for bulk purchase. Bulk buying also includes soup bones and minced meat, which adds to the price dif- ference. Whether Ihe meat can be purchased in bulk depends on whether the consumer can afford it as well as whether the family likes all (lie cuts in a carcass.

Separate schools stay in Another atlempl to persuade' .he Lethbridge separate school >oard lo bargain locally in eacher contract talks went by Ihe boards Thursday. Trustee Steve Vaselenak has repeatedly tried to talk the loard into withdrawing from -he Lethbridge Medicine Hat school Authorities Association .n favor of a return to local bargaining. The Lethbridge public board's decision to bolt the as- sociation has added ammuni- tion to Mr. Vaselenak's argu- ments. The lalest resolution, that the separate board withdraw from !he association and determine whether the public board is in- terested in joining forces, was (lefealed by a 3-2 margin. Trustee Ron Fabbi joined Mr. Vaselenak in supporting tho motion while John Boras, board chairman, Paul Matisz and Frank Peta were opposed. "There is no good purpose in staying in the association now that the public board in this city has said Mr. Vaselenak. "We should deal with our own teachers and let Medicine Hat deal with its own." Mr. Fabbi, who has opposed the move in the past, said now may be Ihe lime to take a closer look at the situation. "1 feel very strongly that we should approach the public school he said. Mr. Boras, who was chair- man of the bargaining commil- lee representing the truslees in the two cities in the last con- tract talks, said he feels the fi- nal decision on the matter should wait. "I don't think this is the time when we should be making this he said. The Lethbridge public board opted out of the association THIS SUNDAY IS FATHER'S DAY! What A Great Guy To Honor By...
