PHONE 328-7121 "Do you have a sparft pair of glaties for holiday No immediate solution to short beef to rise By RIG SWIIIAHT Herald Staff Writer Canada's pro- duetion of beef m a y incresac sigmf ica n 11 y through 1975 but demand is expected to ex- ceed otput, ac- cording to the ted -States department o t agriculture. Put in a nutshell, Canada's beef producers will continue to produce cattle in an effi- cient manner for their oivn benefit but the growing de- mand for tile production could mean increased prices for the consumer. Prompted by close ties be- tween the and Canadian beef industry, tlw report sug- gested that a rapid expansion of the beef production will be hampered by a shortage of forage and pasture. The de- pletion of beef and dairy herds during the late 1960s will not have caught up with consumption by 1975 either. U.S. economists predict that while land, mostly in the west ,is available for expand- ing both grain and livestock production, short run pros- pects favor grain increases. For this reason, efforts to rebuild the depleted breed- ing herds will be a drain on resources in the near future. The reduction in the dairy herd means fewer cull cows (used for beef production than milk production) and fewer dairy breed steers for beef feeding programs. Looking with wide eycf, the U.S. foresees Increased ex- ports into Canada because of the lack of domestic produc- tion here. There will be no immediate solution to the short supply of beef animals which would be necessary in order to cut the price of meat. The domestic solution nec- essary is to increase the Ca- nadian cow population. This would mean an increased catt population that would be en- tering the feeding programs and then on to the slaughter houses. It takes 280 days from con- ception to calving lime. The rajncher usually keeps the animals from the spring to fall and then sells them to a feeder who keeps them until they weigh about pounds. This means almost two years have elapsed from conception to consumer. The only way to build up the cow population is to slaughter only the steers, leaving the heifers (or breed- ing purposes. Part of the reason for the lack of domestic cattle is the inefficient use of the avail- able pasture and rangeland. Canada is a one calf crop per year country which means the number of cattlo entering the slaughtering pro- cess is limited by the cow population. This problem is being tackled by research in range- land use and grains produc- tion. Improvements in animal science are being undertaken to produce more meat on each animal, a practice equivalent to producing more animals. In order for the industry to keep an order in the pricing structure, both for the pro- ducer and the consumer, it has to do the most efficient job raising calves, fatten- ing the steers and moving them into the slaughter posi- tion. With this process will come an orderly movement and a steadying influence on the market. This would tend to cut down on the short supply situations which cause the sudden in- creases in the consumer price. What actually happens is "dry spots" occur within the packing house industry due to the lack of cattle in Canada. An import situation develops in order to keep the packing houses running efficiently and this udds to the cost of the live animal. The producers may hold part of the key to the in- creased cattle population also. They tend to have a morbid fear of overproduc- tion, which in other industries causes an oversupply situa- tion. They feel this will help to stabilize meat prices at a healthy position. But in so do- ing, beef production will not be increased, prices will not be decreased and Canadians won't be able to eat more beef. The saving factor for the beef industry is the ready market for the product. Grain can be produced in abun- dance but the market Is set tliroughout the world and fanners can't always be as- sured of sales. For this reason, fanners tend to go to cattle feeding programs to use up the grain production. This will allow the total industry to gear up for the sbglit increase in beef, production to attempt to look after the growing consump- tion rates. For the good of the indus- try, from ranchers and farm- ers through to the consumer, production must be increased and processing styles mod- ernized to gain top efficiency. This is where the prices sav- ings will occur. Holiday Inn opens its doors The major problems sur- rounding the Holiday Inn de- velopment have been resolved and the hotel management will begin renting rooms and serv- ing food today. The develop ment went through numerous changes, de- lays and public hearings. A de- lay in the opening was avoid- ed as city council met in a special closed session Friday and opened the meeting long enough to grant Holiday Inn an occupancy permit. City and hotel officials were reluctant to discuss the reasons for council to call a special meeting confusion seemed to justify the hesitation. The occupancy permit was Joins ORRPC The Village of Coutts has be- come the 30th member of the Oldman River Regional Plan- ning Commission.

Mayor Andy Ander- Fon said alter the meeting Lhere is sufficient parking for Ihe hotel, but not enough to. ac- commodate patrons of all tho services provided in the Holi- day Village. Parking requirements were a major reason for the hotel to be cut from the original 12 storeys to the present nine. There is provision, however, for con- struction of additional storeys. Parking requirements were also the main reason for a pub- lic lane north ol the hotel to be closed, for houses on the adjoining residential street to be bought and removed and for the city to refuse a develop- ment permit to Glendale Rec- reations Ltd. to re establish a bowling alley in the complex. Some of the parking questions have yet to be resolved. How- ever, the hotel opens today and the first meal will be served in the dining room and coffee shop at p.m. Monday, the licensed dining and cocktail lounges open at 11 a.m. An official ribbon cutting ceremony has been scheduled for June 29 with provincial minister of Industry and com' merce, Fred Peacock, Agricul- ture Minister Hugh Homer and Mayor Anderson doing the honors.
