Tuesday, March 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD f i Meat price to keep on climbing MONTREAL (CP) Meat prices may be high but they will rise even further before they reach levels that make the livestock business profitable for the farmer, the executive secre- tary of the Canadian Feed Manufacturers Association said this week. "You have to give the producers a sufficient return to convince them to produce meat, milk and C. L Friend said in an interview during the annual conference of the associ- ation's Quebec division. He said association members see the farmer's inadequate return as a major problem because of the importance of livestock producers to feed manufacturers' sales. "The hog producer is losing money now and so are some he said. "I just got back from a trip to the west and the feedlots out there are virtually empty. Cattle producers are losing up to a head." Farmers wait Instead of leaving beef cattle on feedlots where they would be ready for market by June or July, farmers are putting them out on grass where it will take them until August or September to be ready for market, said Mr. Friend. Mr Friend offered only two alternatives to meet this problem. "The consumer either cuts out meat or pays more for it." In another speech to the conference, W. E. Jams, federal assistant deputy minister of ag- riculture, said the federal government wants to end differences in grain prices across the country. He said under the new policy, "restrictions on western grain moving in the domestic market would be relaxed to permit freer movement of feed grains across Canada. Allowing for transportation, storage and other marketing costs from region to region, all feed grains buyers in Canada would be on an equal price said Mr. Jarvis.
