Chris Mills, secretary- manager of the association representing all sectors of cattle production from farm to slaughter, told The Herald in a telephone interview this can only be accomplished through an expanded beef cow herd in Canada But expansion of cattle numbers in Canada isn't the present trend, he said Ex- tremely high prices for grams, an unstable economic condition in the cattle in- dustry and intense political interference are the main fac- tors Mr Mills feels are hindering livestock expansion in Canada He said the introduction of the new federal feed grains policy has been only a minor factor in the rise of prices for animal feed He points rather at a bouyant world market for grains, especially feed grams The cattleman in Canada now faces a major decison, whether to sell his feed gram for cash at record prices reaching 40 per bushel, or keep my grain, buy feeder cat- tle and risk possible heavy financial losses Mr Mills said the decision to get out of cattle production is already being made, es- pecially in Saskatchewan where producers went heavily into cattle production to get rid of surplus of grain a few years ago when export gram sales were slow "We see in Western Canada a lot of farmers who are not feeding cattle any he said "They have decided to sell their grain instead This move will be reflected in fewer cattle numbers and fewer feeder cattle in a couple of years, he said Then the consumer will face the same problem of shortages of beef resulting in higher retail prices The unstable condition in the Canadian cattle industry has been caused by several factors mainly the dramatic rise in feed costs and the move by U S President Richard Nixon to freeze the price of rattle sold in the U S The price ceiling in the U S resulted in many cattle being held off the market waiting for higher prices When the ceiling was lifted, the tremen- dous numbers of slaughter cattle ready for market drove the prices down The Americans began shipp- ing their slaughter cattle to Canada where prices were higher, mainly to avert as much of the loss as possible Mr Mills said every animal being sold in the U S now for slaughter is losing money for the producer The US cattle held back because of the price freeze are now just hitting the market, he said "There are tremendous numbers of cattle coming into Canada when we don't need he said In an effort to protect the Canadian cattleman, the association has asked the BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Instillations Open Thurs and Fn Evenings 321-0372 2716 12th Ave. S.
