The cpi^strnctiye;. movement was getting under way,"'^ut all ,o'f this time the pbpiaation Of the Hnited States was Iticrea^feg and the* production of cattle .made very slight gains, if any. Then came the war with it a foreign aeinapd-,ifor our products ^ of many CiasSes/i^id our meats In larger quan-Oties.;^-'Industry in the United States starteditOyjipeed up. The manufacturing: industries called for workers. As the call%ecame more insistent, the wat^s b.^^anib more attractive. With the - increa^eid -wages the purchasing power'andii^tocUnation of the wage eai?ier grewv' And what was the result? ;T3ie;(^nsnm^ of/meats here at'home-inci-eased and increased rap/ idly-to such an extent, in fact, that bur exports did not reach the volume Uiat the demand abroad required. This necessitated the warring countries to draw the .more heavily upon their own meat-prddUclnlf' stocks, and we are d'tfiojally/'lnformed that the num-bera of meiit-producihg animals in ttiese nations luive been very greatly reduced. /Then fame our own .declaration of l/war and the urgent request that meatless days i>e recognized. The response had been general, but the evidence of iricreaaed home cbnsunjption is not lacking. The earning powers of the indlvidualB. has grown to such an ex-|tent that many who before were obliged to rigidly limit their.table expend!^ tiires are now able to Ratify their a:ppetites and feel justified in so doing by the need of increased energy. '�This, in brief, sums up the situation to date, and the most natural' query is whether the future is sufficiently inviting to encourage the farmers oi the United States to gfow beef. There is an interesting fact in connection with this war; Soldiers abroad hy the thpnsandsfyes, by the millions, are being furnished a meat diet regularly for the first time in. their lives. With this,practice are developed ftp-' petites that will have to be satisfied in the years that follow the war. �  Another thing: I have notetT that every authority who has given pxPre^-�sion to his views in connection with .the war ajid the period, that will fol-I'low, has stated with vnrylng emphasis that th? several years of retbn-atrubtiSn will he olj^ most active and prpsperbus character; that the call for -wbrkers'of all classes will be so , p-eat as to ensure' employment to , all who are capable, with high wages j an inevitable incident. j We do not need,to be told that beet j consumption here In our own land' would be'much greater were it not for the food conservation program.' ______,____,__________And who is BO blind that he falls to ^Yt*/*hBWiwdli^and~you see that wf! respond to this program 'ofitt^ibesMhleach-^'th greater cheerfulness because the " Ii^tou,, and prevaljihJB prices are wfll-nigh/proht-i-foKy, very nltlVe.

But when the war is overj and meatless days are no more, when |-t|l.e:-togeft., sel.tlo just a Uttle, how eaj5eily|^^'e will anticipate those juicV lajL year, a surpa drought prevailed that siirpassed in its extent and losses any previous drought experienced .during the past decade or more. V-What! happened? Hundreds ot thousands N,of cattle were rnshe/to the m4rket In>a depleted condition and sold for only-;"a ..fraction of what they would h^ve copimanded HId "they hive'been grojvni.out, and fjnlshed. They have been largely wiped oft the face^' earth.' Ana:,so it is that tremendous^ niunhera.^Qf cattle -that would .have been available under ordinary, eondi-tlons for breeding purposes lisveione, to the slaughter. ;..,-_�,:.' ^ Here is still another angle; Information is current that in the British Isles the government decreed that approximately "3,000,00(y/acres of pasture ^nd -meadowy hlthetto; untouched by ,}Sie plow must be.brokcn, up^for, the growing of grains for human food. These^llllons ot acres Kave been util-ized.for generations tor the miUnten-. ance of live sto(;k, but >vith the coming of the plow vast numbers'of cattle, and .sheep must take_up tliein journey to the slaughter house. TJie authorities acknowledge th% necessity, of this radical action in order- to tide over 4 critical and unparalleled, situ-; ation. They recognize that beef and other dressed meatsNpan be imported,' under existing conditions, more ec�^ homically than grains. Eventually these pastures and meadows must be again put to grass in order to husband the productiveness of the soil. And these-pastures must tlien ha stocked,-that the grasses may Ibe consumed ana as an imperative aid to the maintenance of soil fertility, the restocking process wall niturally' be slow and will not he 'unc}ertaken until that period which will'^foirow the war. In the meantime,-."thii -cattle stock of Great Britain, of Fi-ance, of Oermany and ot the pt^er,countries will steadily decline in Jiuniliers' and condition. And it Is alreaidy asserted by those, who are Informed ,on live stock matters here and abroad that United States will he dra'wn, upon for breeding animals to replenish those depleted stocks. In fact, a start has already been made in t�%t direction. We have. In an initial -way, opened trade relations wltl� Argentina and have made several shipments of high class stock with gratifying results. The lack of shipping facilities -alone has prevented, this trade : taking on large proportions. .
