Notes

Dates or Sequential Designation:
Began with vol. 8, no. 7 (Apr. 1944).
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 8, nos. 7-11 (Apr.-Aug. 1944) are misprinted v. 7, nos. 7 -11. Vol. 9, no. 2 (Nov. 1944) misprinted as v. 8, no. 2.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 11, no. 5 (Feb. 1947) misprinted as v. 11, no. 4, but then from v. 11, no. 6 through v. 12, no. 1 the misprint is 2 issues off until it was corrected with v. 12, no. 3 (Dec. 1947), for instance, v. 12, no. 2 is misprinted as v. 11, no. 12.
Numbering Peculiarities:
In January 1974, two issues were published: v. 38, no. 4, and a "progress edition" numbered v. 38, no. 5. That issue throws off the numbering of the issues for the rest of the volume, so v. 38, no. 12 is August instead of September. They fix it by having both the September and October 1974 issues called v. 39, no. 1.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 52, no. 10 (July 1988) was misprinted as v. 52, no. 11.
Numbering Peculiarities:
Vol. 53, no. 12 to v. 54 no. 8 were misprinted one issue off as v. 53, no. 11 to v. 54, no. 7. This was corrected with v. 54, no. 9 (June 1990).

The FCA Reports...
THERE'S ONLY one problem in the cattle industry today-low prices. Maybe that's the reason why some cattlemen's associations are reporting difficulty in selling memberships this year and one association-Evergladeshas dropped from the roster of FCA.
FCA thrived when the cattle fever tick was a menace to the cattle industry. Interest was at a peak when Anthrax threatened whole herds with destruction. Cattlemen realized, during those emergencies, that in union there is strength-that FCA could get action which individuals couldn't.
PRICES, of course, do constitute a real and present emergency. FCA activities in the 1954 Eat More Beef campaign were highly effective in keeping beef prices from going any lower. The goal of the Eat More Beef efforts is to reduce the number of breeding cows by eating them up. Florida's population of breeding cows was reduced substantially during the past year, according to USDA statistics reported briefly on page 30 of this issue. Less breeding cows mean fewer calves. Fewer calves mean higher prices. It's as simple as that.
UNFORTUNATELY it takes time to see the results of this type of a program. Florida cattlemen-accustomed to quick action and quick results in things like the fever tick and Anthrax emergencies-apparently are hard to sell on programs which take a little longer to "pay off."
INCREASED EFFORT by local cattlemen's associations is the answer to the problem. And FCA directors will be asked by the recently-appointed Membership Committee to employ an executive secretary to help the local associations generate this effort.
THERE'S STILL STRENGTH in union. Association membership is cheap, even for the smallest cattlemen. Join your local association NOW, if you haven't already. Let's maintain a strong FCA, not only to help with today's problem of prices, but with tomorrow's unknown problems.
NATIONALLY, beef slaughter is remaining about at 1954 levels, according to USDA figures. But in Florida, state-inspected beef slaughter is still running higher than 12 months ago. 20,468 cattle were slaughtered during February, compared with 18,856 during February 1953. Calf slaughter was off, however-down from 2702 to 2026. Swine slaughter is still running much higher than a year ago-44,396 compared to 34,749. State figures come from Dr. R. V. Rafnel of the Florida Livestock Board.
A NATIONAL BEEF COUNCIL is being formed by nearly 40 organizations including the American National Cattlemen's Association, to which FCA contributes some $3000 each year. Jay Taylor, American National's president, has taken the lead in the project, which will be designed to promote beef sales on a long-term basis.
FCA DIRECTORS WILL MEET in mid-April after the legislature goes in session, according to Jay B. Starkey, FCA president. No legislative problems of great importance are yet in sight, he said, but when the bills are put in the "hopper" early in the session there will probably be some. The board meeting is scheduled at Gainesville on April 13 before the Breeders' and Herdsmen's Short Course at the University of Florida. Group will meet at the Livestock Pavilion at 10:00 a. m. Junior FCA also Plans a meeting during the Short Course. (See details on page 18)

CATTLEMEN... DAIRYMEN!
LOOK
TO
YOUR
PASTURES
(the cheapest source of feed)
EVEN though your pastures may be of the most improved type, and your grasses are
the most nutritious, they, nevertheless, do not contain all the essential minerals and
proteins in the right balance to maintain your cattle in the best condition.
ADEQUATE BALANCE
THROUGH extensive research, it has been found that ADEQUATE BALANCE can be secured by the use of P.D.Q. Mineral-Vitamin-Protein Supplements-scientifically proportioned and blended to assure the best use of the natural source of feeds such as the
grasses and roughages.
SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENTS
Q offers a SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENT for every condition of Florida weather, pasP. D. ture and season and provides added palatability, along with increased rumen
stimulation. In addition P.D.Q. protects againt vitamin-mineral deficiencies and imbalances,
which so often accompany low calf production.
Records of Florida cattlemen show an increase in calf crop from 6o% the first year to
9go% the second year after feeding P.D.Q. Consumption of P.D.Q. decreased as the cattle became better conditioned-in fact the cost of feeding P.D.Q. Supplements averaged only a
few pennies a day.
P. D. Q. CONTAINS THE RECOMMENDED LEVELS OF VIT-A-WAY'S PATENTED SPECIALLY PROCESSED MINERAL-VITAMIN BASE-AND HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE DEPT. OF RESEARCH AND CONTROL OF VIT-A-WAY, Inc.
P.D.Q. is PROVEN, DEPENDABLE and QUICK-See your local dealer and let him tell you how to use P.D.Q. to obtain the best results.

Top Award
WITH AN impressive farm safety record to its credit, the Fort Pierce FFA Chapter had the honor of receiving the national farm safety award and a cash prize of $250 from the National Future Farmer Foundation during the recent National FFA Convention held in Kansas City. The Fort Pierce chapter advisors point out that farm safety was presented to the members as having several meanings which was based on the fact that each of the 6o members had a broad understanding of the term "farm."
They explained that a Future Farmer might, in the future, operate a large wheat farm in Kansas, with all its power equipment, a large cattle ranch in Texas, a general farm in Alabama, or an intensified vegetable farm in the Florida Everglades; but, most likely, from the Fort Pierce chapter, it would mean to 'Both

Consistency in registered cattle herds is the goal of every sound breeding program. We feel that the consistently high placing of-our show cattle may indicate significant progress toward that goal.
Our showing in five major fall and winter shows in Florida this season has resulted in 33 first, second and third place ribbons. We are especially proud of King Van D. Imperator 23d, who was reserve grand champion at the Florida State Fair in Tampa during February.
We invite you to visit our ranch. Please contact Max Hammond, Manager.

Practical Profit...
in this Grand Champion Carlot of Steers
at the Southeastern Fat Stock Show
THERE'S NO BETTER AWARD TO WIN ...
As Hereford breeders, we know of no award at the recent Southeastern Fat Stock Show more important from the standpoint of the breed than the showing of the grand champiionship carlot. These are PRACTICAL beef animals-the kind more and more Floridians are making a living from. The finish on these steers is plainly shown in the picture at right.
OUR CONGRATULATIONS TO G. W. BAKER...
To Mr. G. W. Baker of Williston-our congratulations for winning this award with Herefords he's fed in his commercial feed lots. These steers were fed a standard Florida feeding ration-corn, citrus pulp, molasses and cottonseed meal.
We're very proud that Herefords once again have proven their ability to produce the very best in beef-producing a profit in a practical operation. We invite you to "check up" on Herefords through Mr. Baker or other feeders in the state.

The FCA Reports .. THERE'S ONLY one problem in the cattle industry today-low prices. Maybe that's the reason why some cattlemen's associations are reporting difficulty in selling memberships this year and one association-Evergladeshas dropped from the roster of FCA. FCA thrived when the cattle fever tick was a menace to the cattle industry. Interest was at a peak when Anthrax threatened whole herds with destruction. Cattlemen realized, during those emergencies, that in union there is strength-that FCA could get action which individuals couldn't. PRICES, of course, do constitute a real and present emergency. FCA activities in the 1954 Eat More Beef campaign were highly effective in keeping beef prices from going any lower. The goal of the Eat More Beef efforts is to reduce the number of breeding cows by eating them up. Florida's population of breeding cows was reduced substantially during the past year, according to USDA statistics reported briefly on page 30 of this issue. Less breeding cows mean fewer calves. Fewer calves mean higher prices. It's as simple as that. UNFORTUNATELY it takes time to see the results of this type of a program. Florida cattlemen-accustomed to quick action and quick results in things like the fever tick and Anthrax emergencies-apparently are hard to sell on programs which take a little longer to "pay off." INCREASED EFFORT by local cattlemen's associations is the answer to the problem. And FCA directors will be asked by the recently-appointed Membership Committee to employ an executive secretary to help the local associations generate this effort. THERE'S STILL STRENGTH in union. Association membership is cheap, even for the smallest cattlemen. Join your local association NOW, if you haven't already. Let's maintain a strong FCA, not only to help with today's problem of prices, but with tomorrow's unknown problems. NATIONALLY, beef slaughter is remaining about at 1954 levels, according to USDA figures. But in Florida, state-inspected beef slaughter is still running higher than 12 months ago. 20,468 cattle were slaughtered during February, compared with 18,856 during February 1953. Calf slaughter was off, however-down from 2702 to 2026. Swine slaughter is still running much higher than a year ago-44,396 compared to 34,749. State figures come from Dr. R. V. Rafnel of the Florida Livestock Board. A NATIONAL BEEF COUNCIL is being formed by nearly 40 organizations including the American National Cattlemen's Association, to which FCA contributes some $3000 each year. Jay Taylor, American National's president, has taken the lead in the project, which will be designed to promote beef sales on a long-term basis. FCA DIRECTORS WILL MEET in mid-April after the legislature goes in session, according to Jay B. Starkey, FCA president. No legislative problems of great importance are yet in sight, he said, but when the bills are put in the "hopper" early in the session there will probably be some. The board meeting is scheduled at Gainesville on April 13 before the Breeders' and Herdsmen's Short Course at the University of Florida. Group will meet at the Livestock Pavilion at 10:00 a. m. Junior FCA also Plans a meeting during the Short Course. (See details on page 18) /or April, 1955 3

CATTLEMEN .DAIRYMEN! LOOK TO YOUR PASTURES (the cheapest source of feed) E VEN though your pastures may be of the most improved type, and your grasses are the most nutritious, they, nevertheless, do not contain all the essential minerals and proteins in the right balance to maintain your cattle in the best condition. ADEQUATE BALANCE T HROUGH extensive research, it has been found that ADEQUATE BALANCE can be secured by the use of P.D.Q. Mineral-Vitamin-Protein Supplements-scientifically proportioned and blended to assure the best use of the natural source of feeds such as the grasses and roughages. SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENTS Q offers a SPECIFIC SUPPLEMENT for every condition of Florida weather, pasP. D. .ture and season and provides added palatability, along with increased rumen stimulation. In addition P.D.Q. protects againt vitamin-mineral deficiencies and imbalances, which so often accompany low calf production. Records of Florida cattlemen show an increase in calf crop from 60% the first year to go% the second year after feeding P.D.Q. Consumption of P.D.Q. decreased as the cattle became better conditioned-in fact the cost of feeding P.D.Q. Supplements averaged only a few pennies a day. P. D. Q. CONTAINS THE RECOMMENDED LEVELS OF VIT-A-WAY'S PATENTED SPECIALLY PROCESSED MINERAL-VITAMIN BASE-AND HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE DEPT. OF RESEARCH AND CONTROL OF VIT-A-WAY, Inc. P.D.Q. is PROVEN, DEPENDABLE and QUICK-See your local dealer and let him tell you how to use P.D.Q. to obtain the best results. P.D.Q. Supplements Do Not Cost-They Pay Write-Wire-Phone P. D. Q.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Now's the time to make your decisions and formulate your plans for PROFITABLY PRODUCING FEEDS to grow better cattle during the coming year. We feel that we've played an important-if small -part in encouraging production of home-grown feeds during the past few years. We want to play a bigger part in aiding YOU, Mr. Cattleman, to economically and profitably produce fresh grass, silage or high-quality hay for feeding. You can get the production you want by utilizing the lines of machinery we handle: The LUNDELL ECONOMY CHOPPER, for example (we've been tempted to rename it the Lundell Hay Conditioner) ; Western Land Roller Company (BEARCAT) builds the famous Heavy-Duty Forage Harvester and seven sizes of feed and roughage grinders; The PIECK VACUUM BLOWER is the 100 percent vacuumatic blower for filling upright silosand can also be used effectively in hay-drying operations. The equipment listed above has, and is, outperforming all other comparable makes. Why not let this equipment achieve the same satisfactory results for you? May I repeat: HELP YOURSELF by letting us help you. Our specialties: machinery of the highest quality for profitable production of fresh grass for feeding, silage, and high-quality hay. Sincerely yours, R. LEE GRAVES, JR. Peninsular Sales & Service Kissimmee, Fla., Phone 6731 P.

It is owned by Greenwood Products, of which G. W. Morrow is executive vice president and Jules E. Gerding (in photo) is vice president and director of the farm's operations. The farm has a broiler capacity of 100,000 and markets a quarter million broilers a year. Ten thousand caged hens produce 200,000 dozen eggs a year, sold in neighboring cities. A 20,000 pullet farm caps the poultry end. In addition, Cloverdale Farms market 2,000 hogs and 500 steers a year and maintain a herd of 100 dairy cows. Seven tons of organic fertilizer is produced a day, and is being put back on the farm at present. Permanent pastures are being built rapidly on the 830-acre farm. Pensacola and Argentina Bahia, coastal Bermuda, Ladino and reseeding clover are used. Last year 110 head of beef steers were grazed on 23 acres of Pensacola Bahia for 6 months and averaged a weight gain of 1.89 pounds per day. A supplement of 2 pounds of Range Checkers was used per animal. The farm also produces peanuts, cotton, soy beans, corn, oats and milo. All of the land is cleared and most of it is fenced with woven-wire fence. As the new pastures are built 39inch fence with a strand of barbed wire at the top will be used. Hogs, cattle, chickens, all need the protection and control of good fencing. And when your choice is DIXISTEEL, as it is on more and more Dixie farms and ranches, then you can be sure of a fence that will go up right, look good, and last for years and years.

Next to pasture, silage is the least costly source of feed nutrients available to us. Essentially it is preserved pasture and the quality of the silage is simply the quality of the pasture at the time of cutting.

If you sold your own meat. Where would you sell beef from heavy steers? Who eats the most lamb, the most veal? What about fresh pork and smoked meats? If you had the time, you could sell some of your meat locally, but you would have to take most of it to distant cities. The chart below suggests a few things to keep in mind if you were to sell the meat from your livestock. As you look at the chart, remember that the supply of meat and livestock in various parts of the country may change every day. At the same time consumers aren't as willing to buy on some days as on others. These quick changes of How meat is sold Distributing meat and meat products means doing business with about 300,000 meat retailers and 375,000 hotels and restaurants. Swift has more than 1500 plant route salesmen who sell meat and other products to various outlets in the smaller cities and towns. Retail meat dealers and other outlets in the larger cities are served by wholesale selling units-Swift has 290. By these two methods of distribution, meat is moved to the areas where it will sell the best. These methods used by Swift to distribute your products help to assure you greater returns. 1855 1955 Just 100 years ago G. F. Swift bought a heifer, dressed it and sold the meat-starting the business that is now Swift & Company. 1955, our Centennial year, reflects the progress and experience of a century of operation. More important, it emphasizes how Swift is looking ahead, to serve farmer and ranchers even bettor during the second hundred years. for April, 1955 supply and demand create many selling problems because meat is highly perishable. With the many problems there are in selling meat, we believe you will agree that there is a real need for a nationwide meat distribution system such as Swift operates. The services that Swift provides, including processing and distribution, are done on a narrow margin of profit-averaging less than 4 cent per pound for all products handled. MEAT SELLING FACTS. Is most meat eaten close to No. Meat on the average must be moved where livestock is raised? about 1000 miles from producer to consumer. Practically all meats, both fresh and procHow quickly is meat sold? essed (except canned) are sold by the meat packer within 14 days.

PASTURE GRASS SEED When you want QUALITY PRICE SERVICE on domestic and imported grass seed for southern pastures .I i QVERV1 Advised to Push Research by Committee Diagnostic Laboratory at Orlando endorsed by special group headed by Lamar Haney; Urge state to purchase Florida beef NEED FOR more research received the most stress in the report made by Governor LeRoy Collins' special Livestock Committee--bnt the committee also made recommendations endorsing the proposed Diagni istic Laboratory, urging more Ise of Florida meat in state institutions, and sIggestingo other iectliods by which the state can aid the cattle industry. Lamar Raney of Silver Springs. clairman of the committee, reported that the text of the committee's report has been sent to the Governor, but would not be released until the Governor has had a chance to study it in detail. "'Te Governor has authcirized me to give a synopsis of our recomiendatiois, however," Raney reported, "but I want to ntake clear that our stiggestions haven't been approved as yet by Governor Collins as part of his program." It addition to the recommendations noted above, the committee also urged: (i) that legislation be pishied witich would give the Florida Livestock Board iltore control oer auction markets to protect against tite spread of disease; (2) that the Governor appoint a conii ttee to aid in sale of purebred and comitercial cattle it Latin America: ('3) that no legislation requiring calfitood vaccinatioti of cattle for Bang's control be passed durii'ung the legislature; (4) Tlint tite Governor st-tigly back Screw Worm control research, w-lien necessary to get state appropriations for continuation of federal work; (5) tlat cottincUed study be devoted toward flood control in Central Florida: (6) that retuirements for admitting feeder cattle into Florida be eased wItere consistent with saititary requirenieits. Dianistic Laboratory recommendations were simitilar to those imade by the Florida Agricultural Council, off which the Florida Cattlemen 's Association is a partcallig for the lab to be built as soon as possible in tite vicinity of Orlando, and to be under jurisdiction of the Florida Livestock Board. Th'lie recommendations on incat purciases included a stggestion thlat bivers for state institutions take note of seasonal surpluses-for example, it ii tfall there is ofter] a surplus o fat cows. as coimpared to fat steers. Iirciase of the cows would result iii more consumption of Floridia beeI, witht a comparable grade of ineat being purchased at a lower price. "Ocir committee thinks tiat expanded researcl is one of the Iost important needs of the cattle industry," Rate dc ared. "Tle state go-vernment can tieli to a large extent ill helpiig tie cxpailsioti of the cattle industry." For example, one ntee-c of tiie indistr is for etitonmi ital feed in stiffic icntqantities.

"One of these days" will become "None of these days if you don't start saving now-. and here's how United States Savings Bonds do the saving, for you systematically Suppose one of your "dreams" is a vacation-or maybe it's a replacement for your old tractor. The best way of making that dream come true is to save for it-systemiatically. And U.S. Series "E" Savings Bonds are one of the best ways of doing it. Here's why: A steady, big return By putting part of each year's savings into Bonds you will build yourself a nest egg that yields a steady, big return. Every $300 you invest now means you'll have $400 in less than ten years from now. $538.72 in less than twenty years. Safer than Cash Unlike cash, which can get lost, stolen or burned, Savings Bonds are always safe-because they are registered in your name. So you can always be reimbursed. The U. S. Government does not pay for this advertsing.

F ENTON' EEDER (REG. Box 124, Rt. I, Phone 412 Arcadia, Florida $34.00 + Tax Why pay more for mineral protection? Fenton's feeders are built of heavy galvanized metal. The entire canopy is rubberized, inside and outside, to protect metals from minerals. Stilhestrol Looks Good At Wadaca STLBESTIROL-FED CattlC gained aVerIage Of 2.0 pottnds pet dy during the first. 5 day s of feeding at Wa Da Plantation Ilear Cottondale. That's the preliminary report front Ed Watkins, WaDaCa manager, who cautions that no definite conclusions :.s to what Stilbestrol can to should be drawn front this preli min aryt information, whih is all that is available at the present time. "It'll take another fir days to finish these cattle to high Good and Choice,' Watkins pointed out. "We always get faster gains in the early stages of our feeding period than we do later oin, so we certainly don't expect to go through the entire feeding period making gaints as hiigl as 2.9 pOuisIS per day." Watkins added, however, that use of Stilbestrol sees to be retciting the cost of adding a pound Of gain abOltt 20 percent. 'If we can trill) it cent a pound off the cost of putting oit a pound of gaitl, we Il be more than satisfied," he said. WaDaCa's Stilbestrol is bein fed in two pOluttds per day of 32 percent protein conunitercial supplement, with which he has replaced the .o percent cottonseed meal protein generally tsed in Florida feed-lots. The remaining daily ration for the steers is to pounds of corn, to pounds of citrus tltolasses and two andit a half, pounds of ground hay. WaDaCa's work with Stilbestrol is the first reported to THE CA-rLEIAN ill which the half and half citrus molasses and corn ration comtion in Florida has been used. FUrther results will le reported in subsequent issues. WaDaCa uses grade steers of British breeds in its feedlots, bringing about 65, percent of thett to U. S. Choice grade in the 120-day average feeding period. The remainder generally grade high Good, according to Watkins.

"As a veterinarian I realize the importance of calcium and magnesium as a plant and animal requirement as well as a source of material to regulate pH which, in turn, is a major factor in making other plant foods available to the grass and thus to the animal.

USDA Figures Show Decline in Beef Cattle Inventory for Florida, But State Retains Its National Ranking THE IlEEF Cattle inVcntorV didn't decrease nationally d11ti9rig g5*1-nut it d ecrceasel in Florida, perhaps as a result of the strenuous "Eat More Beef" program conduCted here-and the national increase was only a slight one. Since experts have said that higher cattle prices coUld onlV result from decreased cattle ii inmbeic rs or in crCascd Ill]man population, the USDA figures on livestock on farms as of January 1, 1955, provided groLInIds for optimiisimi as to aiyi imniediate rise in cattle prices. The South generally and Florida in particular were harder hit than the rest of the country insofar as further declines in cattle values were concerned. Florida's average cow decreased in valuic fro S62 to 54-13 percent-and the Sotlih's average dropped from 374.1 to $66.i-abOti I percent. Nationally the decline in cattle prices was only four percent. The average Cow" figures include all cattle, whether dairy or beef. Florida retained its number i4 ranking in the nation ill number of beef animals, although the beef cattle population decli ned sliglhtly froi 1,38( .-0))o to 1,37(iOOo. ITotal value of Florida's cattle as of Jainua-V I was S00.666.ooo, with beef cattle worth S71,634,)00. Ihis is approx. imatel y the valtie Floritda's beef cattle were worth on January I 1949. There was a significant decline in cows two years old and older during 1954 in Florida--fiom 818,ooo to 777,ooo-aiid yearling heifer ntmmibers also decreased, as calf IIIiiibers and steer numbers inlcreased. These are ctilsidered good signs for the future since fewer cows imieani lower production. The state jimnped fhm1 its tinumber 35 ranking it held in 1954 to the numIiber 33 sPOIt for the 1955 ranking of states in dairy cattle numbers. State 1955 Ranh T exas.

As Hereford breeders, we know of no award at the recent Southeastern Fat Stock Show more important from the standpoint of the breed than the showing of the grand champiionship carlot. These are PRACTICAL beef animals-the kind more and more Floridians are making a living from. The finish on these steers is plainly shown in the picture at right. OUR CONGRATULATIONS TO G. W. BAKER .. To Mr. G. W. Baker of Williston-our congratulations for winning this award with Herefords he's fed in his commercial feed lots. These steers were fed a standard Florida feeding ration-corn, citrus pulp, molasses and cottonseed meal. We're very proud that Herefords once again have proven their ability to produce the very best in beef-producing a profit in a practical operation.

Brown Enterprises To Establish Showplace For Cattle at Delray JAMEs A. KING, general manager of the W. L. Lyons Brown Enterprises, recently disclosed plans for the establishment of a showplace for Shorthorn Cattle on the Rangeline near Delray Beach. According to King, the Lyons Brown showplace will be known as Ashbourne Ranch and will be a division of Ashbourne Farms, Louisville, Kentucky. The progeny of Ashbourne Farms' championship herd sires will form the basis for the Florida Ashbourne herd. It is Brown's intention, King stated, not only to establish a herd of beef improving stock at the Ashbourne Ranch, but the cattle wvill be fitted and shown at the major fairs and livestock expositions of the South as far west as Texas. Explaining Brown's selection of Florida for the site of the Shorthorn showplace, King said, "Brown feels that the grasses of Florida are ideal and, undet proper management, these battlee will Icome a dominant influence in improving the level of cattle raising in the state." Dobry Buys Lanier Herd NfEREDITi E. DOBRY of Little Moon Ranch, New Port Richey, has purchased the registered white Shorthorn herd formerly owned by Cuyler L. Lanier of Bar L Ranch near Tavares.

P R -Jr 4") .J1 (ATHE ATTORNEY GENERAL of the State of Florida has ruled that it is within the jurisdiction of the Milk Commission to fix ceiling and floor prices at retail under the Florida Milk Commission law only after public hearings have been held. According to newspaper reports the Attorney General's ruling was to have been presented to the Milk Commission for their action at a meeting on March 14. It is assuming that subsequent to that meeting there was announced a public hearing conducted by the Milk Commission to determine what the retail floor and ceiling prices should be. Your FMPA representatives were at that meeting and represented your Association. THIS ACTION of the Milk Commission in indicating 15 percent differential between the floor and ceiling prices has caused some considerable confusion in the industry. The TAMPA DAILY TIMES reported on the ruling as follows: "Dairymen Here Hit Ruling-News that the state attorney general upheld the Florida Milk Commission's right to permit lower milk prices yesterday dismayed local dairymen. "Informed by The Times of the ruling, C. W. Ankerberg, manager of Foremost Dairies, Inc., largest company serving the area, declared: 'It's a step in the wrong direction.' "He said the price spread between producer and retailer is probably lower in Pinellas County than anywhere else in the state and considerably below the national average. "'If we have to cut prices, and I don't have any intention of being the first to do so, it will result in lower quality milk and probably force some of the little fellows out of business," he said. "Other local dairymen declined to make direct statements but privately agreed with Ankerberg. Distributors here have not received notification of the commission's action." ATTORNEY GENERAL IRVIN made it clear that, under the law, prices -both at retail and at the producers level-can be changed only after public hearings have been held. We wish to call this point particularly to the attention of our members because we have had several instances brought to our attention where distributors have approached producers and requested them to sign an agreement or a petition whereby the producers would agree to take 10 percent or more in some instances of their total production in Class 2 milk on a year-round basis irrespective of the distributors sales. This is another instance of the type of Class 1-A milk that we reported some time ago in Pinellas county. It is illegal under the law and will result only in a complete breakdown of the producers' price throughout the State. A producer who agrees to any such program is just as guilty of violating the law as a distributor who offers to buy milk on that basis without a public hearing by the Milk Commission. As we have said before, in these newsletters, we do not know what the retail price of milk should be. The dairy farmers of Florida have enough production problems without taking on the distributors' problems as well. We are afraid that there is going to be considerable pressure put on the producers in an attempt to reduce the producers' price. As producers we should be interested in producing the greatest possible volume at the lowest possible cost, and we feel that all producers will, at all times, be glad and willing to furnish complete and accurate costs of production so that their milk can be sold at the lowest possible price consistent with sound business practices. By the same token, producers should resist actively any attempt that might be made to pass on to them the 15 percent that has been authorized by the Milk Commission in retail prices. This, your association will attempt to do at all times. If any of our producer members are approached with a proposition of this sort, we would appreciate hearing from them about it, WE MUST REMEMBER at all times that conditions change from year to year. This is particularly true in Florida, which is a rapidly growing state. Our Milk Commission law is going to be under pressure for changes from time to time-and a good many of them are apt to be justified. However, those changes, when they are made, should come about only in the manner provided by the law, based upon facts and not by evasive action, subterfuge and by actions intended to circumvent the law. The law as written provides ways and means for price changes, and we were glad to see that the Attorney General's ruling conforms to the provisions and requirements originally established for making price changes. WE ARE CONTINUALLY amazed at the rumors, "reports" and propa. ganda that is turned loose on the dairy farmers of Florida in an attempt to discredit your association, your program and your officers. Remember that your Florida Milk Producers Association is for PRODUCERS ONLY; its directors are elected by YOU at your local meetings, to represent YOU, and your officers are elected from the directors that YOU have elected. The association is YOURS, concerned primarly with YOUR problems. If the dairy farmers of Florida did not NEED and WANT an association like FMPA, there would be no FMPA. Those with selfish or ulterior motives, will always try to distort the facts, spread rumors, and use "smear" campaign tactics in an attempt to create unrest, doubts, and divert attention away from the TRUTHS and FACTS. It is unfortunate, but human nature being what it is, we will always have some who will resort to almost any tactics to achieve their ends. Whoever first said that, "The price of liberty is eternal vigilance," knew what they were talking about. Your FMPA directors intend to remain vigilant. Fortunately, the FACTS cannot be hidden indefinitely, and those who use "smear campaign" tacts invariably have them "boomerang". SHORTLY AFTER this issue of the NEWSLETTER reaches you the Legislature will convene. In view.of recent developments, it should be a very important session as far as the producers are concerned. Your directors are being asked: "What is the stand FMPA will take?" -We are asked what FMPA's attitude will be on this or that question, and in spite of the fact that all of the experts in the United States Department of Agriculture, including Mr. Benson, have so far developed no workable solution to the dairy industry problem, we directors of FMPA are accused of having "no program", because we have not all the answers for all of the industry in the State of Florida. One thing that you all-as members-can be sure of is that we will not resort to a "smear" campaign in any part of our program. The dairy industry nationally has not done a good job of public relations. This is also true in Florida. The producers have had little that they could do about public relations and sales. It was not part of our job. However, we would like to suggest a starting point, or a basis for ALL future actions of the milk industry in Florida. There are a great many members of ROTARY in the dairy business in Florida, but for those not acquainted with THE 4-WAY TEST of ROTARY, here it is: (1) Is it the truth? (2) Is it fair to all concerned? (3) Will it build goodwill and better friendships? (4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned? THESE FOUR simple questions should be the basis of determining future actions of the milk industry in Florida. If policies and actions meet all of the above questions with a, "Yes," then you have a sound program. There will be a few self-styled "hard-headed-business-men" who will ridicule the four-way test as "childish" or "Pollyanna stuff". Rotary members are all business men, and this four-way test is endorsed by all clubs all over the world. In the absence of any more concrete starting point in attempting to solve some of the problems of the dairy farmer and the distributor, we would like to suggest that the four-way test be used as a "yardstick" in deciding future policy, actions, trade practices, and legislation, with the hope that the dairy industry will as a result so conduct itself that it will ultimately deserve the support of the public instead of its antagonism. Your director will be meeting prior to and after the public hearing that will be held on the 15 percent spread in retail prices as onnounced by the Milk Commission. We will also have representatives at Tallahassee for the legislative session. If you have not already done so send in your dues NOW.

This time it's STA-FRESHthe handy, low-cost sodium bisulfite powder that keeps silage fresh, green and sweet-smelling. STA-FRESH insures a superior feed with less work at lower cost. It is already highly recommended by many county agents and agricultural leaders. STA-FRESH has been used with success on alfalfa, orchard grass, brome grass, ladino, sweet clover, timothy, vetch, oats, and other forage crops. Cows prefer STA-FRESHtreated silage. In a typical freechoice test, cattle ate an average of 63 pounds of bisulfite-treated silage to 18 pounds of untreated silage. STA-FRESH keeps silage sweetsmelling, too; rids it of that "silage stink" that fouls your clothes, smells up the barn, and may taint milk. Get the facts on STA-FRESH right away with complete details on how to use it. We have STA-FRESH in stock now in 100-lb. bags. See us today.

Culter, conStlling engineer of Miami. In in article on "Sale Electric Fenc( in," Culter reports: "Some two years ago I was commissioned by a stotkmian, whose stotk oceintiration runs to lo head per acre, to mnake a thoroui ig study of electric fencing as a More eIfhicient alnd possibly cheaper mneas of restraining his stock. "'He hat s >ent lully' 10 times as muth for conventional fencing as any other st)cknan in Florida-yet a herd of soil 25 you]g bulls (lnon e of them icotis) proved so powerful as to push over utility. poles and to 'rip thls)tgh a lcavy mesh and barbed wire fence as easily as you open an envelope. "He was a likely-if unwilling-prospect for electric fencinll." This stockman's system, as Culter finally set it up, now restrains the most powerful bIuls. and will handle 10 miles of singlestrand or seven miles of double-strand electric fence. "The layout is extensive," he writes. "Yet I find it no more dangerous than a strand of rusty barbed wire, which can slash a nasty gash, resulting in possible tetanus. "You can get a real 'jolt' by touching the charged wire-but I have experienced as hard a jolt when, in driving at good speed on a highway, I have hit an unseen hole il the pavement. It is no more dangerous." Engineering an electric fence, according to Cutter, shouldn't be considered a job for an electrician. Six cardinal points must be observed: (i) The system must not be charged continuously, at any voltage (even 25 volts can be dangerous); (2) the charge must be intermittent, with relatively long periods when the wire is "dead" or uncharged; (3) these cycles (total of "on" and "off" time) must be not longer than one second -and the "on" (or charged) period not longer than one-tenth of a second, preferably only a fraction of that; (4) The controller must be factory sealed by a reliable manufacturer, thus precluding field repairs by incompetent repairmen, (5) the system must be adequately grounded; and (6) for a system attached to a standard 115 volt service, the main fuse must be not larger than one ampre, and adequately insured against over-fusing.

The crucifixion of Christ is portrayed in this way in the Black Hills Passion Play being performed at the Lake Wales Amphitheater. Last Pr'iforniance will be Easter Sunday. HolyWeekTheme Of Passion Play CHRIsT DED to atone or out sins, the" rose from the dead on fastr Iornig. Tie story of the evcects leading up to Christ's crucifixion and resurrection is the theme of the Passion Ilav which is presented at the Lake Vales Amphitheater every winter. Since the Christian world is now approaching the great Easter season, TiE CATTLEMAN wishes to commend the Passion Play as something every Christian should see before Easter if possible. The production at Lake Wales includes a cast over snore than too. It starts with Jesus' triumphal citry into Jerusalem on Paltn Sunday, featured the plotting of the Priests as to how to remove hiim front the scene-and their success in encouraging Judas to betray hitm. The trial before the Jewish Sanhedrin (tise chttrchs court) and the subsequent review of its deat sentence by Pilate (the Romatt Governor) are covered fully-as is Pilate's reluctance to put all in Inocent Mail to death, and the refusal of Herod (KilIg of Galilee) to accept jurisdiction in the case. .Tere are live camels, sheep, and horses in tile play, making it interesting even to stall Children. The play will be performed every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursclay at 8:00 p. s. until Easter Sunday Ihetl t le concluding performance is scheduled. Saturday night performances still be held on March 26 and April 9. JiM StHARP was recently elected Lto succeed Dr. R. j. Elliott as president of the Hotssestead Rodeo Association.

The Youngs and the Haskins have been friends for vears, and for over 25, years have beets sharing ciaipitig trips on the Withlacooeliee River and the Gulf, at a site near Yankeetown. During the early years Of their caiping experiences, tsey pitched a tent, and Moved its, sleeping oi the ground. They baked in a I)cstChl oveNs-fatCy dishes, too, even biscuits and cakes! Even the woiei-folks are g-od hunters and fishermen. Sometimes big gaie hias been bagged; at other times only small; but in cartp there has almost habitually been meuat to cat. Ihe river provides freshi water fishing; the Gulf salt water fishing *. There are usually at least two camping trips a year-two weeks at the beginning of hunting season in November, antI anotlser trip after Cliristmias. Weekends are sandwiched in at other periods.

Mrs. Haskins says, with a nostalgic grin, "We loved samping in the tett t11og. We hissg a light-a gasoline lantern-ill a tree outside By i1t ever leaving a light inside the tent we weren't bothered with mosquitoes and black gnats." Love caisp life, away from the comtforts of lsoie? Mrs. Haskins went ol, "You know it's funny-at lome I have a iaid to help sse with my work. In cainp I work like a slave-alxays have-and love it!" Tie Haskins own citrus groves and cattle. One of Kowbelle Carrie's hobbies is cooking. She delights in preparing mieals for company. "Fin not a fancy cook," she says. "I'to a plain cook." Favorite recipes The mnan of the house loves her cliicken and noodles, chicken and dumplings and real Boston baked beans. Mrs. Haskins makes her own noodles. ie beats up an egg, adds a dash of salt, anid flour, as imuch as the egg will take tip. This dough is rolled thin, cut into small strips, and allowed to dry for about two hours, after which it is cooked in For the Kowbelles A CLIPPiNG from an old magazine tells of a rtew fad-womnen wearing silk stockings (some of their embroidered or painted) colored to match their dresses. Old styles are coming-or have cone!-back. I haven't seen any red or purple nylons yet though-Ihave you? 13U1tIING A hotise Be sure to protect the ventilators so that sick or itijared animals may not crawl into them to perish. We didn't take this precaution aId old princess osur aged cat who you may remember lost the tips of her toes o1 ler hind feet by being run over with the imowing machine, crawled under our house by means of a ventilator and died. Uh-the stench was terrible and there selemed actually no way to remove her. (Our house is cement blocks) I AxI glad the days are lengthening. I amn enjoying the extra hours of sunlight, but in addition whets it is warms and nearly daylight I don't mind getting tsp so badly, conie tle ring Of the alarni. Do you? I think two of tile most unpleasant chores of wintertiic are getting tip and going to bed. Which is worse? I do not knows: MANY INGENuoUs Kowbelles are making their own earrings. One woian clients buttons like those oi her dresses onto earring bases-for charming results. Miniature toys, sets of breast pins-subjects for earrings are endless. One pair I noticed is fashioned frons fish hooks. On the spur of each hook is a pearlrl. IN CAiiORNsA we used to preserve surplus eggs in spring and stisisiser ill a liquid caled "Water glass". I have preserved some eggs in my freezer but believe I prefer tle "water glass" method for eggs to be used in baking. Where to get "water glass" is i5y 5 et probles-it isn't listed in our mail order catalog these days-and also to find onut frols iy home demonstration agent if this method is now acceptable. Perhaps I have the cart ahead of Buckskin. Maybe I need to find out whether the method is acceptable before I find out if and where I can find it. One homemaker I know freezes eggs in her ice trays, allowing an egg for eac cube space. These "egg" cubes are later stored in plastic bags and are easily Imeasured for cakes, etc. when needed.

Genuine buckwheat cakes are ano1er specialty of Mrs. Haskins. She buys buckwheat flour from W\est Virginia. Bnckwheat cakes for breakfast take a bit of )reparation the night before. In the evening she dissolves a package of yeast in a quart of warns water. To this she adds a dash of salt and flour to make a stiff batter, which is covered and allowed to rise until the following morning, when the desired portion is taken out. To this she adds about a teaspoon of soda dissolved in a Cup of hot water, and a little syrUp which makes for a nice brown! Tiese are baked on a hot griddle. Have the butter soft and the syrup warmied. Yum! Often site leaves a cup of starter batter for the next morning's batch Of hot cakes. Like Mrs. Hiaskins. 'Mrs. Young also likes the out-of-doors-gardeuill g, hunting. fishing-but unlike her she does not like cooking. She ( cooks becausee I have to."

He had reason for being disSaltiSfied, too, for most of his two-year-olds were little bigger than year. lings. They lOOked bad, for they were rougi coated and sunken eyed. Although being well fed, they often refused feed and ate dirt or chewed On bedding from the manure pile. Two animals had died, and several -were so weak they were barely able to walk. Trouble wasn't confined to the young stock, either, for the cows weren't milking as well as they should, and they were evidencing various breeding troubles, including irregular heat periods and abortions. Herd scale symptoms like these are usually an indication of infestation with internal parasites like coccidia or stomach worms. However, in this case trouble was shown as due to a deficiency of trace elements like iron, iodine, copper and cobalt. This type of deficiency is primarily due to feeding on plants and grains from soils that lack the involved minerals. Symptoms are most often seen during the winter, with improvement often following turning to pasture. Cattle of all ages may be affected but trouble seems commonest in heifers shortly after the birth of their first calves. Trouble is seldom so bad as in the case mentioned, and symptoms are often limited to such things as mild unthriftiness, slow gains, and below normal milk production. Faced by the possibility of such a deficiency, owners often wonder if they should add trace minerals to their cattle rations. Some reCet work at tile Ohio and Kansas agricultural experiment StatiOns may help them to decide what they should do. At Ohio it was found that a trace mineral supplement increased the weight gains of steers fed late-cut timothy hay that had been exposed to the weather. At Kansas it was found that prairie hay exposed to considerable rain after cutting was lowered in quality so that trace mineral supplements improved tile general appearance of cattle. Regardless of where you live, fhe'l, these investigations would indicate that trace minerals might be helpful when your roughages have been lowered in quality by weather conditions. 76

Hawkins Elected New President Of Markets Ass'n BILL HAWKINs of the Monticello Livestock Market was elected president of the Florida Association of Livestock Markets at its annual session held in Tampa during the Florida State Fair. Members voted to take whatever action possible to secure action changing the hog cholera vaccine experiment from Suwannee to some other county, since the experiment will make it impossible to bring swine to J. D. Odom's Livestock Palace from nearby counties. The action will not only hurt the market, but interfere with normal marketing channels, the association was told. Odom was elected vice president of the group, with Doyle Conner of Starke reelected secretary, and no Cody of TiE CATFTLEMEAN reelected treasurer. The board of directors was eliminated and a three-man executive committee elected, composed of Claud Tindel of the Tindel-Williams Livestock Market, Graceville, Ton Kirby of the Okeechobee Livestock Market, and Harry McCollum of the Cattlemen's Livestock Market, Lakeland, to function between membership meetings. Promotion of the auction method of selling livestock was discussed, and plans made to step up distribution of the Association's folder which tells the advantages of selling at auction. Group will meet again at Tallahassee during April, members decided. Plans are Underway For Live Oak Hog Show, PLANs ARE well underway for the 1955 Suwannee Valley Swine Show, which is held in Live Oak the fall of each year, according to Pattl Crews, Suwannee Coutnty Agent, who reports that this year's event is shaping tsp to be the largest on record for Florida's swine raisers. Crews feels that this year's early planning will do much to increase the size of the show and points out that the committee has already secured a judge who is a national figure in judging livestock and have added a new show class for a lot of eight barrows. Newly-elected officiers for the Live Oak show, all of Live Oak. include: Vincent Jones, local FFA advisor, president: E. K.
