Yes! I tho It is harmless.-Advertisement b'lank D. Tom so a. Kditc.r Shorthorn In America) The (inestlon of permanency in '.lite beef Industry is repeatedly discussed. The hope of the beef grower Is naturally that the demand beef will be sufficient, to bold llm prlco on a level that will ensure fairly l.aoral profits. The prospective Investor In lmef-maklng properties, surveys the, i field and studJnx the proipe.clH before I making his investment Will it on-tlnne to pay Is the question he aeks, i for existing values lure him. ' I'pon an analysis of the situation. , one reaches ileflnito conclusions. A p�ti.ull�r situation now uffects the beef industry. Thousands of engaged in beef production in this conn try are required to no lightly on tho 'beef diet in conformance vlth tho government edict. The. purpof-o of the federal restrictions Is ta provide and lnforn.aUoni::.;l!,efIm,,(l,an afrf!f HXl'W t0T �e i lighting forces of the Allies. The j evidence of a reduced :ivailabb) sup-� |ily at the source naturally inclines ! values upward. Hut recognizing thai the situation is abnormal, the more ' one analyzes it and the more infor-; niation that la obtained, the more evl-! dent. It becomes that this is not the ' result of war alone. Kor instance (.and how often the 1 story Iibh been repeated, but may I I briefly refer to it here?) there was ' the breaking irp of tho range herds and the shipping of a largo percentage of the ranch cattle to the market places. Tlila was not accomplished in a j day. It covered a period of years. I How well we remomber now, that the j market authorities and agricultural ad-' visers sent out warning after warning of the ultimate effect of this dl-mlnl.-ihing process. They said, In effect, that the time would soon come when there would not be cattle enough to go around. But lew believed them and fewer still heeded thei.* warnings. The years slipped quickly ! by. Thousands of truinloads of cattle, j very few of which were cither of I marketable age or condition, were I dumped on the markets. While this process was going on the tendency of i the prices waa inevitably downward. I a. : The warnings increased.-They came i from numerous sources. There was j a general note of alarm and a decc-I slve and concerted effort was made (to check the depleting practice and _ ho induce farmers of the cornbclt^col- I ton growers of the south, who had siif-an i-.dnionton ! rur,,(| 1rom ,ho rnvi,KCa 0f the boll weevil, and farmers in the Now Knfi land and Atlantic States, to engage In beef raising. This effort to an extent was effective. The fanners appealed to were I'tiinuiated not ro much by a patriotic j the motive as by the profits assured. The constructive movement was getting under way, but all of this time; the population of the United States was Increasing and the production of cattle made very slight gains, if any. Then came the war with It a foreign demand for our products of many classes, and our meats in larger quantities. Industry in tho United State' started to speed up. The. manufacturing industries called for workers. As the "all became, more, insistent, the i wages became more attractive. With I the Increased wagos tho purchasing power and Inclination' of the wage earner grew. And what was the re-! suli ? The consumption of moats here at homo increased and increased rapidly-to such an extent, in fact, that our oxports did not rWch tho volume that tho demand abroad required. This necessitated the warring countries to draw the more heavily upon their own meat-producing stocks, and we are officially informed that the numbers of mcut-produclng animals in these nations have been very greatly reduced. Then came our own declaration of war and the urgent requost that moat-less days be recognized. The response had beca.geiKiial. but tho ovidence of increases home consumption ia not lacking. Tho earning powers of tho Individuals has grown tu such an extent that many who before were obliged to rigidly limit their table expenditures are now able to gratify tholr appetites and fool Justified in so doing by the need of increased energy. This, In brief, sums up tho situation 10 date, and the most natural query i.-, whether the future is sufficiently inviting to encourage the farmers of the Cnited States to grow beef. There Is an interesting fact In connection with this war. Soldiers abroad by the thousands, yes, by tho millions, are being furnished 0 meat diet regularly for the first time in their lives. With this practice aro developed appetites that will have to bo satisfied in (lie years that follow (he war. Another thing: 1 have noted that ovary authority who has given expression to his views in connection with tho war and tho period thnt will follow, has stated with, varying emphasis that tho several yo*rs of reconstruction will be of a most active and prosperous character; that tiie call for workers of all classes will be so great as to ensure employment to all who are capable, with high wages j an inevitable incident. I Wo do not need to be told that beet j consumption here in our own land 1 would bo much greater were it not | for tho food conservation program. And who is so blind that ho fails fo see that wo respond to this program with greater cheerfulness because Ibo prevailing prices aro well-nigh prohibitive. It seems quite apparent that if the piioos wo pay over tho counter for beef and other meats were reduced twenty per cent., or thereabouts, the consumption of meat normally would Increase something like fifty per cent. If this war continues we may look for meatless days, to become more frequent. Hut when the war Is over, and moatless days are no more, when prices settle Just a little; how steaks and roasts which we now forego. Home consumption will certainly expand, for we will feel Justified In satisfying our appeliles There is one. phase of Hie matter that Is :vot generally referred In. but, in my Judgment, is one that vitally concerns the. future trade possibilities. Il is this: The fanner lias the opportunity to sell his cattle today at prices thai he lias never been able to obtain before. He, reads the quotations and-meditates. The cattle buyer calls to him from the road and lie --listens. It sounds Mice prosperity! He counsels with his wife and she | ! urges him to dispose of as tnany of 1 i the herd as ho can spare, and not work | j so hard during the winter. She re-j j minds him 'that, he can sell his corn j for more money llian he ever obtained for ft before that .-imilh's folks sold their hay for $27.oo per ton. And her husband admits that he 1ms I thought, of that. If they have 11 niort-Igage, the wife suggests that it would! j be a good time to sell the, stock and 1 I the feed and get out of debt. If they I have no mortgage the husband intimates thnt. it. wouldn't lie a bad deal to rcduco the stock, considering what ; he could for the corn and hay. and i try and buy the. eighty that joins them, i for he reasons that laud that doesn't i seem to have advanced much as yet Is certain to go higher. In other words Hie inducement.' to sell were never so great, and II requires .some courage and a great deal of optimism to refrain from cashing In under the present attractive market conditions. Many are yielding to the alluring temptation and'are converting their live stock and their farm crops into cash. Can you blame them? It is the great opportunity that they have hoped for during the years they have toiled. The winter los^c of lPlil and 17 and 'IS in the mountain and grazing country were exceedingly heavy. The one consolation was that the hides on the cattle lost yielded a cash return, in many cases, equal to the prevailing prices of a few years before for the entire animal. Out in the plains country, this past summer and last year, a drought prevailed i list surpassed in its extent and losses any previous drought experienced during the past decade or more. What happened? Hundreds of thousand-* of cattle were rushed to the market in a depleted condithm and sold for only fraction of What they would have commanded could they have been grown out and finished. They have been largely wiped off tin; face of the earth. And so il is that tremendous ! numbers of cattle that would have been available under ordinary conditions for breeding purposes have gone to the slaughter. Hero is still another angle. Information Is current that in the Hritish Isles the government decreed that approximately :l,eno,oe.(i acres of pasture and meadows hitherto untouched by plow mil hi be broken up for the growing of grains for human food. These millions of acres have been utilized for generations for the maintenance of live stock, hut with the coming of the plow vast numbers of cattle and sheep must takeup their jouinoy to the slaughter house. The authorities acknowledge the necessity of this radical action in order to tide over a critical and unparalleled situation. They recognize that beef and other dressed meats can be Imported, under existing conditions, more (economically than grains. Kventulilly these pastures and meadows must bo again put to grass in order to husband the productiveness of the soil. And these pastures must, then bo stockod\ that the grasses may be con-1 sumed and as an Imperative aid to the maintenance of soil fertility, the re-slocking process will naturally be slow and will not be undertaken until that period which will follow tho war.- In the meantime, the cattle stock of (ireat Britain, of France, of Germany and of the other countries will steadily decline In numbers and condition. And It is already asserted by those who We informed on live stock matters here and abroad that United States will be drawn upon for breeding animals to replenish those depleted stocks. In fact, a start has already been made in that direction. We have, in an initial way. opened trade relations with 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. Brazil offers an inviting field for the sale of purebred cattle of the beef breeds. The prospects are when the present chaotic condition in .Mexico passes .and it must pass, there will conio out of that country a call for breeding stock of beef breeds thai will absorb untold numbers. Western Canada is requiring from year to year greater nuin-bers of breeding cattle-a trade that bids fair to remain permanent.
