All but forgotten This decaying farmhouse on Highway 24 near Mossleigh is mute evidence of the decline of the family farm in recent decades. A few more years and possibly only the hardy willow tree will remain to mark the farmstead. New judging method used on Brown Swiss Cec Isaman of Stettler, president of the beef section for the Canadian Brown Swiss Association, said he was pleased with the quality of the animals at the Lethbridge livestock show held this week at the Exhibition Grounds. He was also interested in the new judging method employed by the Brown Swiss association this year. He said for only the second time Brown Swiss cattle were judged 30 per cent on visual examination and 70 per cent on performance. The new system, developed by John Lawson of the Lethbridge Research Station, is designed to recognize cattle which are going to produce more beef. Mr. Isaman said factors taken into consideration by the judge in the performance section include the growth rate of the cattle in yearling and cow classes, the age when a cow had her first calf and the interval between calves. Brown Swiss show judge Ed Noad of High River said the quality of cattle was good but he questioned the use of the new judging system on some of the animals.

A dog barked and whined and drew atten- tion to little Ken's plight. Neighbors dug with shovels until mechaniz- ed equipment arrived to strip the earth away from the shaft. There was no casing to worry about. Oxygen was pumped down the hole and a household vacuum cleaner was used to keep earth from cnverine Ken's head. The boy was not injured. He suffered from exposure and was tired by his underground experience. Rancher predicts beef price going up OTTAWA (CP) Chairman Beryl Plumptre of the food prices review board has dis- missed as "nonsense" com- plaints that retail beef prices are too high at a time when farmers are selling cattle for less than it costs to raise them. Current retail prices merely reflect the increased cost of feeding cattle, she said in one of two reports released at a news conference Friday Although retail prices are higher now than a year ago. there is no evidence to in- dicate that consumers are paying too much. In fact, Mrs. Plumptre said, beef is a bargain at current prices. Farmers are selling top- grade beef cattle for 53 cents a pound when it is costing them 57 cents a pound to raise them. But board economist Gordon Burton, a Claresholm rancher, suggested consumers may be paying considerably higher prices in the future. Mr. Burton said he expects a lot of ranchers to sell off cows during the next month in an effort to reduce the size of the country's cattle herd. The board was concerned what effect a reduction in the breeding herd would have on future beef supplies. At the news conference, Mr. Burton said the recent slaughter of calves in the Lac St. Jean region of Quebec about 600 were killed and dumped into a pit to protest low veal prices "had no economic significance." MANY THROWN AWAY Many dairy calves are killed and thrown away each year anyway. Farmers have no use for them in their herd, par- ticularly if they are bulls, and they do not grade as top quali- ty veal. It is a common practice to dispose of a number of such calves. Nevertheless, board consul- tant Dean Her said it made even less economic sense than usual to keep calves this year. Increased supplies, par- ticularly in Europe, have squeezed out a market for Canadian exports. Mr. Burton said there is no glut of top-grade finished beef sold by supermarkets. In fact, there was a slight shortage and Canada was allowing im- ports in from the United States. But there was a surplus of cattle not vet fat enough to be sold. Feedlot owners, who bought such cattle from ranchers for prices of between 60 and 70 cents a pound, now were being forced to sell them for half as much. Still. Mr. Burton, like many cattlemen, said he is opposed to the establishment of marketing boards to help smooth out economic wrinkles in beef marketing. DID NOT UNDERSTAND He blamed the current problem on farmers and politicians who did not unders- tand what was happening in the beef market during the last two or three years. A year ago, he said, political leaders, economists and others were saying there "is no chance of over-producing for the beef market." "As a result, any female bovine that could walk was bred." And now, the world was flooded with beef, export markets had dried up and only well-established ranchers would be able to survive the two-year period generally considered necessary to bring the beef herd down. Young ranchers, especially, will be hurt by the current period. Mr. Burton said. To set up operations, they paid and apiece for cattle which now are worth only And they are paying interest rates as high as 12 per cent on bank loans for land purchased recently. Mr. Burton said one effect of the expected increase in the number of cows slaughtered might be an increase in the quantity of canned beef available for world aid programs. He said he is unaware how much canned meat might be processed in the country, but that the thought of using such products for aid "might well be worth considering."
