A. Olson said today. Or. Olson speaking at to opening of the agriculture Congress said the emerging aggressive approach by govern Merit aided by All segments o the Industry indicates a Gen nine need to tailor production to Market there must be careful plan Ning and forecasting to enable the Farmer to decide on an appropriate level of he said. Or. Olson also said a Legisla Tive framework is necessary to provide the Means to Markel products in an orderly fashion. Legislation can also been acted to effect production control by telling Farmers How much they can produce and sell. I am convinced that we must keep Bur prices and products if prices Are not competitive Canada will not be Able to Export and if we cannot Export we cannot he said. The agriculture minister said there has been a tendency in Canada to downgrade Agri culture s importance to the National Economy. Fewer people live on farms and in Rural areas and in a sense because they Are out of sight our Farmers Are out of also few canadians have experienced real hunger and this abundance has fostered complacency. But while the Industry is taken for granted rough every third Canadian House Hok is supported by Money earnet either directly or indirectly from our food Industry. In add Tion the output of each farm worker now needs 40 people compared with 11 prior to the second world War. Agriculture is of such importance to Canada and its people to justify major government involvement or. Olson said ask ing that from the govern men viewpoint the Industry could have a three fold role. The first is to feed the popu la Tion the second As an important Money earner for Canada and third to provide food Aid to the less fortunate in our own society and the world. But if governments and charitable organizations use our agricultural resources to help the less fortunate in the world there is an obligation to spread the costs across our in ire society. We cannot expect the Agri cultural Industry or Farmers to ear a disproportionate share of he or. Olson said the Farmer s returns for his labor capital and management invested is not comparable to that enjoyed y those in Many other sectors if the Economy. They should be and mechanisms must be found to allow armers to share the benefits heir increased efficiency has Rought to other or. Olson told the Congress lat Market research and Dev in pent is High on the govern ment s list of priorities because everything possible must be one to promote capture hold and expand new markets for agricultural products. Cattlemen leery by Johnrika Ottawa staff forecast ers told the Canadian agricultural Outlook conference Here that prospects look pretty Rosy for the beef cattle Industry but cattlemen did t seem Over Joyed tuesday. A conference p a p e r summarizing the beef situation in formed delegates that total beef production on this Conti nent will have to increase by an estimated 37 per cent by 1980 to keep up with predicted growth in beef demand to rising population and growing consumer preference for Steak. Looking at the Short term it said " an average Price of close to for Choice steers at Omaha is expected for the first half of 1971, with summer prices up to fed cattle prices in Canada Are hot expected to vary much from 1970 Levels. But cattleman George Ross of Manyberries Alta., who writes a column for the free press weekly expressed co Sid Erable scepticism about fore ass during his address to the conference on the implications of the beef Outlook. It is helpful to know things Ike the cattle population and he number of cattle on feed but unless lbs can come up Vith More accurate figures we Are probably better off without he said. He said Ottawa should Stop interfering so much in the forecasting business and let armers increase herds As the Narket presents itself. One minute we Are told to grow wheat the next we Are old to grow cattle and a few Hort months later we re told of to grow wheat. A lot of Western banners Are of too Happy right now sitting it there on their summer allowed Fields. The trouble i think is tha More cowboys in Ottawa and More Ottawa representatives in the West although give minister by Olson full credit for doing e Grything he can for Wester or. Ross said the situation would be greatly improved free movement of Grain be tween provinces was Allowe and the beef grading was adjusted to changing conditions. We Are docked about Hundred on heifers and i hav yet to see Heifer beef on any meat he said guess their sex changes in rout front Alberta to he said packers Are netting As Little As two per cent profi so it must be some other Factor that denies producers a fair share of the consumer Dollar. Something i s drastically wrong when producers of a commodity like beef can Only truck robbed Miami up men robbed a Wells Fargo truck of Cash at Miami International Airport tuesday the Dade county sheriff s office reported. The Money was being taken from first National Bank of Miami to a Bank in Freeport grand Bahama Island.

Net Back at the most four per cent on their invested capita when you can turn around and double your Money in Bonds or triple it in other guaranteed c. A. Gracey who also delivered a beef Outlook paper was just As sceptical of present forecasting methods. Much of the source data is not highly reliable and certain critical types of information such As expected marketing is hardly available at he said improving data Gath ering and analysis is More important than Outlook conferences because the beef in Dusley if allowed to respond unhindered to economic signals will adjust to maintain a Nice balance Between Supply and he said projecting beef de Mand to 1980 is simply a sterile academic exercise because beef production will adjust to demand of its own Accord year 0 year. A it should be Clear to every one that our ability to produce beef is much greater than Pur ability to consume or. Racey said. O expansion in beef production should never been courage other than As a result 1 economic signals Market place. Still another source of flexibility lies in the fact the a ional Supply can surge ahead r fall Back As a result of fluctuations in Market weights i effective use of this Dynah c Means that Supply can be Al ered either Way by one or cent in the very Short period of a week to 10 he added that the trend to Ards higher percentage of feedlot finishing of cattle can t o much further because Al Ady 85 per cent of All eligible cattle ire graded Choice or Good and half of the rest of the Young beef fall into that thoroughly respectable Grade known As Canada he said it appears that both the growing National beef Herd and declining National Dairy Herd Are approaching stable condition.
