Hcllofs, president of Park- lard Beet Industries Ltd. of La- combe. In Irs semi-annual report lo shareholders, Mr. Hcllofs says that a combination of higher slaughter cattle prices and ab- normally low grain prices nor- mally provides an unusually at- tractive profit margin for a (ecdlot operation. But 19G9 was an unusual year. "The effective absence ot any market whatever for grain sur- pluses resulted in foolhnrdy price competition for feeder cat- tle among grain Ihcir only market [or 1968-69 farm grain stocks." FEEDLOTS SUFFER Uneconomic feeder calUc prices considerably limited Parkland's unit volume and all commercial feedlots in Alberta were operaling below 50 per cent of capacity with most be- tween 10 and W per cent of their most efficient status. "To compound industry difficulties, Saskatch eivan's Premier Thatcher encouraged a mass esodus of Alberta cattle into his province by subsidizing intcresl rales on farmer borrowings lo facilitate their purchase of ant mal feeding and breeding units, all in the hope ot making a dent in liar unwieldy grain surplus. "This naturally had the ef- fect of increasing Alberla catUe prices to uneconomic levels." Mr. Ilellofs says there are nu- merous reports that grain farm- ers and co-operatives who tem- porarily fed caltle with their 1968-69 grain surplus have suf- crcd financial loss or netted ex- rcmeiy low prices [or their grain due lo excessively high Bices paid for feeder cattle. believe that this situa- tion can become more serious during (be firsl half of "The more drastic problems may be mitigated by strong in- dications that beef prices can increase substantially into the early summer. Feediot popula- tion is low and heifer and cow slaughter is down considerably, as breeding herds expand. h i 1 e expending cow herds augur well for future bod supplies, this will not increase marketing [or about two years The near-term prospects are for rising bcpf prices."
