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).

Coming up al
... another tg year
for the South!
RECENT YEARS have been big growth years for the South. In the past six years, businessmen have invested $21/2 billion in new and expanded industrial projects along Southern Railway's lines alone. These developments, totaling more than 2,000, have created thousands of new jobs. And expanding business has brought in its wake new f
opportunities for personal development aRaE tRViHDo usm ,,Aw4 4OWTI1
in education, the arts and other non- _Z
commercial pursuits.
Just as surely, another bright year
lies ahead. The South's economy will continue to expand and diversify for dependable, productive workers ... abundant natural resources ... booming G& AE& Oj U R1~ QViOWfl
markets ... low-cost rail transportation
..and many others.
Particularly in the agri-business field will there be exciting new opportunities for profit and growth, made possible by Southern's drastically reduced freight charges for hauling grain into the Southeast from the Midwest. Agricultural economists confidently predict that the great new livestock and related agri-business expansion stemming from Southern's low grain freight rates will annually put 2 billion new dollars into circulation in the South, ringing cash registers everywhere.
Working together, we can make 1966 the "best year yet" for the South!

Big Break in Beet
... for growers, shippers, feeders!
That's the futures contract in cattle that was safely herded through the Chicago Mercantile Exchange just about a year ago -the one that helps you protect your normal operating profits from year to year whether beef prices move up or down. This contract offers all the benefits of hedging to growers, shippers, and feeders alike-provides a very real measure of year-round protection against any drastic changes in prevailing prices for beef. just how should you go about taking advantage of this contract? Well, for one thing, we'll be happy to mail our folder that gives you all the working details.
But perhaps of more importance -particularly if you've never used the futures markets before-you should read our basic booklet "How to Hedge Commodities." This booklet is yours for the asking ... covers most of the important "do's" and "don'ts" in clear, easy-to-read fashion ... makes good sound sense for anybody who wants to know how he can use commodity futures markets for his own protection. If you have any real stake in beef though, our best advice is to come in and talk with one of our commodity men.
He can review your situation and get for you our specialists' views of how a step-by-step hedging program can be set up to your best advantage. There's no charge for that consultation
- or program.
At your convenience, simply come in and ask to speak with one of our commodity men at

FEDERAL Tax Futures Hit New Highs
THE YEAR has started out with cattle markets showing a firmer price trend. While marketing in December were still somewhat above a year earlier, receipts of O n E states late have dropped off indicating that many feedlot operators are withholding
portions of their cattle from market. Even with the higher December slaughter,,; beef production was only moderately above a year earlier because of lighter Is T h reat slaughter weights. For 1965 as a whole, beef output was only slightly above 1964.
However, the rise was not sufficient to offset the population increase. Consequently, beef consumption per person declined one pound from the record 100.4 1 Upward trend in pounds in 1964. Moreover, red meat consumption in 1965 averaged about six to

Pony Club Is Proposed
THE PONY of Americas has been steadily gaining interest in Florida and has now reached the point where a Florida organization is being formed to promote the
4 breed, according to a report from Mrs. Billie Montgomery of Lithia.
She points out that the Pony of the Americas are a medium to large-sized pony, from 46 to 54 inches in height. They have the Appaloosa color and characteristics, and ideal conformation is a happy medium of the Quarter Horse and the Arabian. She believes they make an ideal performance pony for the larger child that is not yet ready for a horse and says that, with their usually excellent dispositon, make wonderful mounts for the smaller child since they are not so easily outgrown.
Mrs, Montgomery says that there will be an exhibition of Pony of Americas, along with other ponies, at the Florida State Fair in Tampa. There will also U, be an information booth regarding the proposed club, or information can be obtained by writing her at Route 1, Box 23-A, Lithia.

Due to our large broodmare bond, Kid Five does not service outside mares. We breed our horses to be said at auction. None are sold privately.

Little Dick Priest is 20 years old now, so we are breeding only a few outside mares. He has the record to warrant breeding to the best racing blood anywhere: Four of the top five horses in the 1962 Florida Quarter Horse Futurity were of Haw Creek Breeding, and three of the top five were sired by Little Dick Priest.
Two of the top four in the 1961 Futurity were How Creek Breeding. Little Dick was also the sire of the 1962 Florida Champion Racing Quarter Horse at Gulfstream. He was also the sire of the unofficial winner of the 1963 Futurity. He has sired many AAA and AA Quarter running horses. He has proved without a doubt that if bred to the right mare, he is as good as the best, and
3 .4"better than most.

The $419,460 purse distributed at the 1964 All American Futurity at Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico is more than a conversation piece; it's something to reach for wherever the faithful gather.

FLORIDA CATTLEMEN'S ASSOCIATION A Report from the Executive Vice President SEE,,zAL FAC TORS currently affecting fed cattle prices indicate that 1966 should be a banner year for everyone involved in the cattle industry. Notable factors include 1) Slaughter weights are below average ; 2) There is a tight pork supply situation; 3) Rising consumer disposable incomes; 4) High employment rate; 5) Expanding population; 6) Solid consumer preference for beef ; 7) High prices for cattle by-products. FLORIDA BEEF COUNCIL income continues to set monthly records s.ee report on page 54). Income of $5300.58 during period of December 15 to January 15 was a new monthly record Beef Co-ncil members met on January 12 to discuss a greatly expanded program of promotion for 1966 and added a number of new item0 to the promotion plan. Details will be available in the near future. OUR CROSSBRED CATTLE exhibit has arrived in Verona, Italy, in good shape. The 10 head will be displayed there during their livestock show March 13-21. USDA is clearing the final paper work which will enable FCA First Vice President Charles Lykes of Tampa to be our official representative at the show. FLORIDA STATE FAIR booth will be sponsored by Florida Beef Council, according to Chairman Thomas L. Sloan. Staples and Stevens Company of Tampa has contributed a large walk-in cooler, with glass on three sides, for use at the fair and any other event where desired by Beef Council. The cooler will hold a rotating side of beef in full view of fairgoers. Cooler has remarkable eye appeal and is the same unit used effectively by the Highlands County Cattlemen's Association. Beef Council will use the unit to sell the quality of Florida beef. Interested persons can guess the weight of the side, which will be given to the one submitting the most correct answer. Literature urging greater usage of beef will also be available at the booth. IF YOUR COUNTY is involved in the consideration of an area Bang's problem in any way, please keep J. 0. Pearce, Jr., chairman of FCA's Brucellosis Committee, advised by writing him at FCA Headquarters, P. 0. Box 656, Kissimmee. FCA can help effectively only by keeping up to date on developments in this field. We'll continue to keep you advised on new Bang's developments in the state and nation. YOUR 1966 ASSESSMENT for the Florida Cattlemen's Association is now due. If your association hasn't paid as yet, we'd appreciate your early attention so that we can accomplish all of our objectives in 1966. YIELD GRADE demonstration was recently presented to Thriftway market managers at their Ocala store by Dr. R. L. Reddish of the U. of F. and USDA's Dave Hallett.

Read how this totally new, safer wormer is making new profits for Southern cattlemen THIBENZOLE now in three forms: IB pellets, new boluses and drench. All three come in large, Sp 1LETs economy size. Look for the blue packages with the Merck seal. w A New cattle profits are coming directly from the remarkably effective and lasting roundworm control delivered by new Thibenzole. In toe-totoe comparisons with the wormer you're probably using now-on over a thousand pasture cattle -Thibenzole returned an average of $2.72 per head in extra gains! And, that's just half the story. F ACT: In tests on more than 1400 pasture cattle in states all across the South, cattlemen worming with new THIBENZOLE realized-on the average-$2.72 more per head in added weight gains compared to oldfashioned wormers. (13.6 lb. extra, 200 selling price.) Completely new effectiveness, safety THIBENZOLE can deliver this startling extra performance because it's a completely different worming drug, unlike any other wormer ever on the market. For example, it not only controls economically important adult roundworms, but gets many immature worms, too. Result: worms' life cycle is cut, reinfection reduced. So, worm control usually lasts much longer. And, THIBENZOLE has a previously unheard-of safety margin. No toxic side effects were seen in any of the trials. THIBENZOLE can be given even to heavily parasitized cattle, to young animals, and to pregnant animals. It won't cause "drug stress." THIBENZOLE won't set cattle back, won't slow growth or weight gains. Most economical by far For what it does, THIBENZOLE is the South's most economical wormer by far. Once you use it, you'll agree you can't afford a "cheaper" wormer. Free, full-color 8-page brochure gives full details. Write Animal Health Products, Merck Chemical Division, Rahway, New Jersey.

QIJINCY Is Site of Field Day Cattlemen, bankers tour feedlots CLOSE TO 150 bank representatives and cattlemen attended a joint meeting held at the American Legion Home in Quincy January 20. The meeting, an all day affair, was sponsored by the Florida Bankers Association in cooperation with the Federal Reserve Bank Branch, Jacksonville, and the Florida Cattlemen's Association. It was hosted by the Citizens Bank & Trust Company of Quincy. Presiding over the day's program was John Henry Logan, chairman, FBA Livestock Committee and vice president of the Exchange National Bank in Tampa. According to Logan all topics and individual speakers of the day were chosen to help communicate the needs and problems of the beef cattle industry to the bankers and to provide guidelines for both producers and bankers in the year to come. He also indicated that this annual meeting, the third of its kind, does a great deal in establishing a stronger bond between individual stockmen and their respective bankers. Following the 9:30 registration and "get acquainted" coffee period the meeting was opened by Logan who introduced P. C. Davis, president of the host bank. Extending a welcome in behalf of his firm, Davis said he was pleased that Quincy was chosen as the location for this year's meeting and he hoped the industry members present would find the day both informative and valuable. In a brief review of the 1965 program Louis Gilbreath, chairman of the FBA Agricultural Division and vice president of the Exchange Bank of St. Augustine, addressed his opening remarks to the cattlemen. "When agriculture is prosperous," Gilbreath said, "you see allied industries doing well, also. For this reason bankers are more concerned about the agricultural economy than you might think." Gilbreath also indicated that his committee was pleased at the response and cooperation they had received from the cattlemen throughout the year. He concluded by saying that because the 22 SPEAKERS PARTICIPATING on the FBA-FCA program were, left to right: Ralph Cellon, Jr.; F. S. Baker; T. J. Cunha; Art Higbie (seated); Louis Gilbreath; R. D. Bennett; P. C. Davis; J. H. Logan; W. D. Roberts (standing). groups had been able to work so well together the program had been, in the opinion of the committee, one that was progressive, sound and valuable. The next speaker on the program was Dr. T. J. Cunha, head of the animal science department at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and special consultant to the banker's committee. He discussed the problems and potential of the cow-calf operation and the feedlot industry in this state. Touching first on the cow-calf aspect of his presentation, Cunha said that the future here looks Very bright but many problems still plague the producer. "One of the big obstacles," he said, "are the mounting land values. Cattlemen are going to have to work closely with tax assessors in the future-they want to pay their fair share of taxes, but they cannot afford to pay on the basis of speculative value. Cattlemen, in order to make a fair profit, must pay on the basis of realistic land values, and this is why it will be necessary to work with the tax people." Mentioning several other indicators which point to a profitable cow-calf future, Cunha went next to the feedlot segment of his topic. "The future here looks extremely bright for Florida producers." he said. "We are a beef deficit state and this is definitely to our advantage. In 1953 we were producing 1.1 percent of the annual beef consumption and even with our present fast rate of growth in beef production we will only be producing 1.4 percent by 1975. This means we can double and redouble our production many times before we are supplying even as much as five percent." Cunha continued by saying that producers in Florida will realize a further advantage from being in a beef deficit state. "As the consumer education program now underway progresses," he said, "producers will find their market within the state expanding. Chain stores, our biggest single outlet. are now paying the national price for beef plus the freight rate to have it shipped in. This will eventually change though when they are made to realize they can buy the same high quality beef here at home at a lesser price." Among the other points Cunha mentioried was the need for more economical practices in fattening steers. He said that work is now being clone in this field and cited linear progranmming i computerized programming) as an example. "With the assistance of computers in our research," Cunha commented, "we are finding that some of the rations we have been using are not necessarily the most economic rations we have thought them to be. This indicates to us that we are going to have to heed the computer's results because it can be a big advantage to us in the future as far as curbing costs of our operations is concerned." Cunha also discussed briefly the cow-calf and feedlot picture in the southeast and predicted that this is the area in the United States that will enjoy the greatest future growth in both phases of the industry. Art Higbie of Kissimmee, FCA executive vice president, spoke next on The Florida Cattleman

the future of the Florida cattle industry and dealt primarily with consumption and consumer outlets. After breaking down the many categories of beef consumption and quoting projected figures which will be in effect over the next 10 years, Higbie concluded by saying that the industry in our state today is confronted with a challenge which is vast in its scope. "It is," he said, "up to the producers to meet this challenge of increased demand in beef consumption, and with the obstacles that are bound to arise it will be a difficult task-but it will not be an impossible one." Following Higbie on the program was W. K. McPherson, professor in the department of agricultural economics at the University of Florida. In discussing the impact of changing freight rates on Florida's feedlot industry, he cited a specific study which his department carried out. The purpose of the study was to determine which would be more costlyshipping by rail 100 pounds of livestock products or shipping the feedstuffs required to produce 100 pounds of livestock products. McPherson said his study proved that shipping the livestock product itself is less expensive than shipping the feedstuffs required to produce the product. He also touched upon freight rate reductions and said that a one cent per hundred pounds in shipment of livestock would offset a four cent cut per hundred pounds in shipment of feedstuffs. Results of the study, according to McPherson, will be published soon and will be available to interested parties. Sloan Baker, associate animal husbandman at the North Florida Agricultural Experiment Station spoke next on programs for developing 400-500 pound calves on small grain for the feedlot. Following Baker was R. D. Bennett of Greenwood, owner of Bennett's Angus Ranch, who explained the program he has for developing lightweight cattle on small grain pastures. Bennett said that during the normal cropping season he grows watermelons, soy beans, corn and peanuts on the same land that he uses for pasture after harvest. When harvest is over the ground is worked down and fertilizer is broadcast, and in October a combination of oats and rye intermixed is sown. The reason for the combined grains is that grazing through the winter months on up into the spring is assured. When the calves are brought in they are kept in a group for a day or so, then they are moved into initial pasFEEDLOTI VISITORS on tour during the annual cattlemen and bankers meeting view a part of the operation owned by W. M. Inman near Quiney. ture and permitted to settle down for five days. After they are calmed, Bennett said, they are then transferred into permanent pasture where troughs are set up, and this is where they learn to eat from troughs. Also, during the transfer process they are innoculated twice. "The advantage in lightweights," Bennett explained, "is that we have on option on how to market them. We can move them through auction, markets or packers. Or, if the price isn't right for us, we can hold them over and feed them out ourselves."

PAGE 25

Bennett also commented that the onl% factor governing whether he feeds steers or heifers is the price. "We would just is soon feed one as the other," he siid 'It doesn't make any difference to uts. He concluded his portion of the program with a brief slide presentation featuring sample groups of calves grown in his operation. One thing Bennett emphasized with the slides was thit the calves brought in from south Floridi seem to do a better job of gettint underwiv than those he brings in from out of st te.

"Of these five categories," Cellon said, "in my opinion two will definitely expand-the packer-feeder group and those whose interests are diversified. Especially the packers-feeders since they can use their own cattle as a "buffer" against prices, and this will have a very real effect on the other types of producers." Cellon concluded by speaking very highly of the Florida feedlot industry's potential and future. "We have," he said, "all the ingredients for developing a truly fine cattle industry in this state.'' Following a noon lunch furnished by the host bank the attendees were conducted on a tour of some of the Gadsden County feedlots. Concluding speaker of the day was Robert Sweeney, agricultural economist from the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta. In his summary Sweeney praised the future potential of the feedlot industry in the state of Florida, indicating that at no time has it ever looked brighter. USDA Agency Is feorganized AN ADMINISTRATIVE reorganization of the meat inspection service, a part of the Consumer and Marketing Service Agency of USDA was made recently, according to Assistant Secretary of Agriculture George L. Mehren. He said the action was taken to better coordinate various meat inspection functions and to align meat inspection practices to reflect more closely the conditions in livestock marketing and meat processing. In the reorganization, responsibility for investigating violations of the meat and poultry inspection laws will be removed from meat and poultry inspection services and assigned to the Office of the Inspector General. Responsibility for approval of labels of food products containing meat and poultry, for testing meat samples and maintaining testing services, and for establishing standards for meat products, slaughtering plants, and foreign inspection systems will be placed in the new Technical Services division. A Livestock Slaughter Inspection division has been established to supervise procedures governing the inspection of animals before and after slaughter. Another segment is the establishment of a Processed Meat Inspection division to supervise procedures governing the continuous inspection of meat processing operations.

FEDIERALra IsT 1reat Upicar(I treted( in vafluat ion noted Editor's Note This article is presenlted by tax committee of the Florida Cattiemen's As.ocliQtion. as compiled by the National Livestock Tax ComDUINt 'lEl past few ye"lTS there has been An alarnling Upward trend in the valuation of farm and ranch properties for federal estate tax purposes. The re'sUlt has been higher and higher estate taxes at death. This in turn, has forced the sale or liquidation of many substnt ial livestock operations, and threatens to force the liquidation of most ranches and farms whose owners may die in the future without sufficient outside assets. The effect of this trend is to threaten the continua tion of the traditional family ranch or farm which is passed onF from oil( gen eration to the next. The following article is designed to poilt out some of the steps that can often be tAken by lln estate after death in defense when an lirbitrarY or illreasoNably high Vxaluat ion is proposed by a revenue agent. This article is very general and is not intended to apply to anv particular situation. In atnv event, no two cases are exactIX alike ald l i'v rancher or farmer who hasl aln estate tax valuation problem should seek professional advice with respect to hisI; own particular sitliatiOn. The prime reaisoni for the upward trend il valuation is the requirement in the federal! estate tax regulations that the stAte tax ie imposed oi1 till' "fair market value" of' the assets owned 1) v a decedent At the( time of Iis; death, Il) the cse of rell estate, revenue LI'n 1 lts lI a "f r et c (I VaILu" byV 'I COrnparisOnl Of thO kimd to bO VALuNd With 11h0 pri(Vs for whiCh other land inl till maril h~s sold within i few years before or after the( pirticular' VALltionl (LOO.

result in a satisfactory settlement, the estate's representatives are entitled to a further hearing at a higher level. Both steps are real opportunities for negotiation and settlement. In fact, most cases are so settled and at lower values than first proposed by the revenue agent. But if a satisfactory settlement is not reached at these levels relief may be sought in court. There are two courts generally available: the Tax Court of the United States, which holds hearings in all the principal cities, and the United States District Court for the taxpayer's district The United States Court of Claims is also available for a refund suit. From these courts an appeal may be taken to the appropriate United States Court of Appeals and from there, in rare cases, to the United States Supreme Court. There are advantages and disadvantages to both routes. In any event, it is often better to settle the case at the administrative level, without going to court, or before an actual trial, although in some cases litigation is necessary to protect the estate's rights. From a practical point of view, the importance of the right to appeal to the courts is not necessarily the actual appeal, but the threat of an appeal. Very few estate tax cases are taken to court, but often they only can be settled at fair values when the revenue agent or, after a protest, the adminisistrative officer, is convinced that the estate's representatives will go to court if necessary to avoid an unfair valuation. There are many ways under the existing estate tax law whereby a taxpayer can properly resist an unreasonable or arbitrary claim of a revenue agent. If people fight for their own rights they can often cut the valuation substantially, even if they still end up with an estate tax on a ranch or farm which is out of line with estate taxes on other types of property. In order to achieve this result, however, the representatives of an estate must be aggressive. The preparation of an adequate defense should begin well before th'e estate tax return is filed, and the earlier, the better. This can be done by obtaining competent and experienced advice from attorneys, accountants, and appraisers familiar with the problems involved in, valuation determinations of this kind. They can develop fully and present forcefully sound arguments against the often arbitrary and unreasonably high valuations asserted by revenue agents.

WING, Manager Ph: SHadyside 8-5461 WILDWOOD, FLORIDA Jock Moom, He CH4 case from the "comparable sales" relied on by the revenue agent. For example, the "comparable sale" may have involved a better consolidated spread, better water rights, more hay land, and so forth. There are many other features which can be a basis of distinguishing the estate's case from the "comparable sales", such as soil conditions, mechanization, location, accessibility, and size. Among other things, a large spread will not sell for the price per acre that small, selective tracts may have sold for in the particular area because of some special advantage or location. By way of further example, suburban sales of real estate are not applicable to wide-open-space farms and ranches, and farm land should not be compared with grazing land. Since the earning power of other assets is generally considered the most important factor in determining value, it is proper to argue that it should at least be considered in the valuation of a farm or ranch. Even though the government's current regulations contain no provisions devoted specifically to the valuation of real estate, they do provide that "all relevant facts and elements of value ...shall be considered in every case. It is a fact that ranches and farms. are low income producers and the failure to recognize this in the valuation of farm or ranch land can result in a valuation without economic reality. Making this argument against a revenue agent can be an uphill battle, but it should be made. It can be supported by other factors. For example, the economic outlook of the industry is relevant. In addition, the effect on management of the loss of the decedent is relevant to the immediate future of the ranch or farm in question. In the traditional family operation, the assets owned by the decedent often constitute a minority interest in a farm or ranch partnership or corporation, or a minority undivided interest in the operating assets themselves. It is elementary that a minority interest is usually worth less than its proportionate share of the value of the entire operation. Even in the case of a majority interest in a family enterprise, there are proper arguments which can be made to the same effect. It can thus be successfully maintained that shares of stock in a ranch corporation are worth substantially less than their pro rata share of the underlying assets because of the interposition of the corporation between the shareholder and the actual ownershiP of the assets.

Chaiin Link Has Modern Facilities ( i1AtN LINK RANCH, owned by Oscar Babcock, located at Sarasota, specializes in the breeding, boarding and training of Quarter Horses. Started in April 1964, the horse ranch now boasts of the latest equipment and facilities for doing a top notch job with horses. Babcock, a former Air Force and commercial airline pilot, has been associated with horses a good portion of his lifetime. He had definite ideas as to the establishment and construction of the proper training facilities and in the almost two years since the acquisition of the property, the complex of buildings and training areas clearly shows the results of sound planning. Stable areas consists of two barns, the latest of which was completed last September. This building is of modern design and is 200 x 75 feet containing 24 box stalls along with an upper storage area tor hay and feed. The feature of the new barn is the indoor arena which is 125 x 75 feet. It is lighted and horses can be trained whenever weather prevents working outdoors, either during the day or at night. A safety measure is the construction of the walls which slope at the bottom several feet above the base. Another well designed building is the storage place for the rolling stock at the ranch, giving protection from the weather to the farm equipment, vehicles and horse trailers. Outdoor training facilities were constructed with a view of having sufficient space to handle a number of animals allowing them plenty of room. The outdoor arena is lighted for night training or events and is 75 by 300 feet. Containing breaking pens, roping box, and calf chutes, along with three different size pens, the outdoor facility is representative of one of the better horse training complexes. Babcock has always been convinced of the need for good working Quarter Horses by Florida's commercial cattlemen and has kept this idea in mind in establishing his program of training. He has a wealth of experience working for him in the persons of Walter Mann, his head trainer, and William (Buddy) Johnson, assistant trainer, and they are all working towards the goal of training horses to perform at peak efficiency on any job. for February, 1966 35 Florida's 1965 Champion SURFSIDE 32,9063 Cardinal's Boy P.50,429 Albert's Queen P-127.073 His Pedigree Hired Hand's Cardinal P-38,194 Cuzrva De Alejes P32 King Albert P-13,369 L, H.

The 4-H horse program in Florida should soon begin to skyrocket. The last legislature, according to W. W.

We're sure that we'll have a strong :tid livel 4-H light horse program in Florida within aiother year," he says. The light horse industry in Florida was given its first big boost with publica tion in 1962 by the State Department of Agriculture of a 212 page book titled, "Light Horse Production in Florida." I ailed in newspaper and magazine reviews as the foremost compilation of its kind in the nation, the book has the following foreword hv Doyle Conner, Commis ioner of Agriculture: "Horses have now been added to Floridi's agricultural picture as an industry of economic importance. Our State has become 'home' for a large segment of America's Thoroughbred breeders: Quarter Horse breeding has grown and expanded at an unprecedented rate, more and more Standardbreds are moving to Florida, and the revived interest in pleasure and working horses and ponies has been tremendous in the past few years. "Horse racing has been a popular sport in Florida since the early 1800's' -and possibly as far back as 1539, when Hernando de Soto brought 225 head of the Royal Spanish stock to this state. In 1932 the Florida legislature lev;lized parimutual wagering on Thoroughbred races. The 1961 Legislitare approved parirnutual wagering for Quarter Horses and harness racing tracks. Standardbreds have long been trained in Florida for harness or sulky racing. Almost every horse breed now has an association in Flo:-ida and riding clubs are active in all parts of the State. "This book, therefore, is dedicated to, and published for, the Florida horseman large and small breeders, cattlemen who use horses for work and play, and young people who raise horses as club projects or just keep one for riding." Contents include information on selecting and judging light horses, blemishes and unsoundnesses, nutritional reEuirements of a horse, pastures, care of stallions and broodmares, care of foals and weanlings, training horses, diseases of horses, internal and external parasites, (are, management and shoeing of horses. The American Quarter Horse Association, with headquarters at Amarillo, Texas, also distributes beautifully illustrated free booklets to all who write for them. Titles of the booklets are "Training Riding Horses," "Judging Quarter Horses," and "Ride A Quarter Horse." Among the association's latest innovations to serve horselovers was the placing in State Universities prints of 16 mm sound-color motion picture films. Floridians may obtain information about the free Quarter Horse films by writing to Motion Picture Service, Florida Agricultural Service, 217 Rolfs Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville, or the American Quarter Horse Association, P.O. Box 200, Amarillo, Texas 79105. Horse owners everywhere are expected to receive many benefits from research now in progress at several state universities and the Morris Research Laboratories in Topeka, Kansas, with funds contributed by the American Quarter Horse Association. An expanded budget of aipproximately $100,000 was approved by association officials early last year to further finance additional studies designed to imrlprove equine health. Important findings in the fields of The Florida Cattleman Pony Club Is Proposed TuE PONY of Americas has been steadily gaining interest in Florida and has now reached the point where a Florida organization is being formed to promote the breed, according to a report from Mrs. Billie Montgomery of Lithia. She points out that the Pony of the Americas are a medium to large-sized pony, from -6 to 54 inches in height. They have the Appaloosa color and characteristics, and ideal conformation is a happy medium of the Quarter Horse and the Arabian. She believes they make an ideal performance pony for the larger child that is not yet ready for a horse and says that, with their usually excellent dispositon, make wonderful mounts for thn smaller child since they are not so easily outgrown. Mrs. Nlontgornery says that there will be an exhibition of Pony of Americas, along with other ponies, at the Florida State Fair in Tampa. There will also be an information booth regarding the proposed club, or information can be obtained by writing her at Route 1, Box 23-A. Lithia. 50

nutrition, parasite control, fluid therapv, and swamp fever already have evolved from work launched with AQHA funds five years ago at several research centers. Studies financed wholly or in part with AQHA funds are in progress at Rutgers University, Texas A & M Universit v, Colorado State University, Morris Research Laboratories, and the Morris Animal Foundation of Denver, Colorado. Indicative of the lasting influence of the studies is the cataloging at the Morris Animal Foundation in Denver of all accumulated knowledge of equine health and the means to attain and maintain it. The information will be accessible to research scientists, veterinarians and horsemen. The extensive equine research work is goind forward under the general direction of a committee of AQHA officials comprised of Ed Honnen, Denver, Colorado, Chairman; Albert K. MitchelI, Albert, New Mexico; Rex C. Caubt, Crockett, Texas; Richard Kleberg, Jr., Kingsville, Texas; B. F. Phillips, ,Jr., Dallas, Texas; Spencer Childers, Fresno, California; Dr. M. W. Ickes, Nampa, Idaho. Though a complete report on the Quarter Horse industry's growth and expansion in 1965 will not be available to the public until the association holds its annual convention March 13-16 in Cincinnati. Ohio. it is known that of the 1163 AQHA approved shows held last year in the U.S. and Canada, approximately two dozen were staged in Florida. In keeping with the national trend it is likely a greater number will be held here this year. There were 24 AQHA approved shows here in 1964. Long recognized as the world's largest western horse breed registry, it has also been for many years the fastest growing of all horse breed registries. There were 52.512 Quarter Horses added to the rolls in 1964 for owners in this and other countries, with assurance that at least as many or more would be added in 1965. The association enrolled its first horse in 1941 and by mid-1965 had registered considerably more than 400,000 individuals. At the end of 1964 there were 4389 in Florida, a gain of 181 percent in four years. Quarter Horses are owned by persons in this and 31 foreign countries. As the sport of Quarter racing continues to win additional adherents, more of the speed merchants annually go to the wire in more races, at more places, before more people, for more money. When the countdown on the industry's affairs for 1965 is completed another new mark is certain to be chalked Unretouched photo of Bots attached to Horse Stomach Perforations to Stomach Wall of Horse Strongyles, both large and small are picked up from water or preen forage by horses. Larvae grow into adult parasites migrate to various organs of horse s body for period then re turn to digestive tract. Here they lay eggs which pass from the horse in waste and hatch in the soil. From this point they develop to infective stape arid tire cycle repeats. In research as tny as 56,600 strongyles were recovered from one horse.

CowBelle Activities Described ACTfl TIES OF the Florida CowBelles have been many and varied over the past several months, according to Mrs. Cedrick Smith, Jr., of Micanopy, president. Mrs. Smith, as head of the statewide organization, personally participated in a number of the events. A Beef Round-Up was held in the WinnDixie Store at the Cedar Hills shopping center, Jacksonville, last November. She said that project was accomplished by the Marion County CowBelles working with the Florida Beef Council in a county where there is no cattlemen's association. In connection with the Jacksonville event. Mrs. Smith said that WinnDixie's president, B. L. Thomas, highlv commended the Florida CowBelles and the Beef Council for their joint efforts throughout the state in the promotion of beef and indicated his company would always be happy to cooperate in such ventures. Several other in-store beef promomotions were also conducted over the state for the Thriftway Stores, Mrs. Smith added. Some other winter activities participated in by the group's president included a Christmas luncheon for the Hillsborough County CowBelles held at Leandimere, the Polled Hereford ranch of Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Everett of Dade City. Mrs. Everett is the first vice preident of the Florida CowBelles. The Florida president also attended the Georgia Livestock Convention at Jekyll Island, Georgia, recently, and addressed the Georgia CowBelles at their annual convention held in conjunction with the stockmen's event. Other meetings attended by Mrs. Smith where she appeared as guest speaker were the Columbia County cattlemen's annual meeting, and an organizational meeting of ladies from Levy County held for the purpose of organizing a local CowBelle group. At that meeting, Mrs. Elliott Whitehurst of Williston, was elected president of the new unit. More recently, Mrs. Smith appeared on WFTV-Channel 9 in Orlando with Bill Lavinghousez, Orlando, and gave an insight on the Florida CowBelles organizational structure and described the activities of the group.

She also has the distinction of being one of the 320 women veterinarians in the world. Federal meat inspection is an interesting and essential field of work. Every animal must be inspected before it is killed and the carcass again to make sure that the meat conforms to government standards. When something is found wrong with an animal or carcass Dr. Hinson herself must personally inspect it, although laymen examiners assist her. Live animals may have diseases which are communicable to man, and some germs are not killed by cooking. Condemned animals are made into tankage and fertilizer. The liver of animals may have parasites and the rest of the animals be all right. Likewise an animal may have a broken leg and that portion alone of his body be condemned. Dr. Hinson planned to be a veterinarian at the ripe age of five. She used to bring home every available sick or injured dog and cat and practice on it. She set her first dog's leg when eight. Work in Wright's Dog and Cat Hospital in Atlanta, and later a practice of her own at Alma, Georgia, kept Dr. Hinson busy for a few years. She prefers working with large animals, cows, horses, mules, hogs, and would probably still be delivering calves except for health reasons. Her work as an inspector is not so strenuous, yet is reFor the Cowfelles WE HAVE placed a bulletin board over the telephone, Thumb tacks hold a small 1966 calendar and important data which demands early attention. There's the notice of an ASCS meeting for Ralph-a form from the County Tax Assessor which must be filed before April 1. A large appointment calendar on the desk by the telephone should help to keep the family at meetings and engagements on time. RENN, HOME from college for the holidays, has been sewing almost fulltime ..three granny dresses, slacks, blouses, skirts. For Christmas she made several black velvet snakes which were well-received. A yard or so long, they had pointed noses, button eves, red tongues. Main body was stuffed with old nylon hose, with joints being formed from toilet tissue tubes cut in short lengths. These were filled with paper and separated with bright gold trim. Ideal to rest on a teenager's bed' RALPH AND HALE are vacationing in North Carolina with relatives. Harold is enjoying his "vacation" at home, hunting and fishing with friends, without any real work to do other than to milk the cow and keep wood for the fireplace. I believe he has suffered from a moment or two of boredom-is learning the real virtue of work. WE HAVE new fluorescent daylight lighting in the living room. It makes eyework at any time of day or night easy. Each fixture is equipped with two 40-watt bulbs which use less electricity than the old bulbs and give considerably more light. The electrician who supervised the job said that more wear and tear is caused by turning the lights off and on than by leaving them on-if they are to be left off for less than an hour and a half. The children enjoy not being told to "Turn off the lights" when leaving the room. MASKING TAPE is handy in the kitchen to close opened packages of grits, meat, etc. The Florida Cattleman 88

JONES, JR., Polled Hereford breeder of Leslie, Georgia, recently reported that one of his cows, soon to reach 18 years of age, weaned her sixteenth calf last July. The heifer calf had an actual weight of 600 pounds at 217 days of age. Jones noted that the dam of the high producing brood cow stayed in the herd until she was 18 years of age, and had also produced 16 calves. Putting the ages of the mother-daughter combination together to figue out at 351% years, the pair produced a total of 32 calves for the Georgia breeder's operation over the years. Significantly, the elder cow, when sold out of the herd, still brought a sale price of $171, the Georgia Polled Hereford breeder said.

MCPHERSON, agricultural economist with the agricultural experiment stations, University of Florida, Gainesville, says that in the future, tattlemen will use computers to decide when to buy and sell cattle, the composition of the rations they feed and the kind of crops they grow. However, few if any, will actually operate computers or write computer programs, he said. Instead, specialized organizations will provide computer services These might be owned and operated by the farmer himsef, private Corporations or public agencies. McPherson said, "This in itself is a new agricultural industry and may well he a very important one.He pointed out that high schools and colleges have responded to the use of mechanized farm equipment and replaced some of their "applied courses" with ones enabling students to understand why machines perform as they do. These courses include chemistry, physics and mathematics. Vocational agricultural students are now learning how to operate and maintain trucks, tractors and all kinds of machinery rather than how to acquire and use work animals, two-row cultivators and gang plows, McPherson said. In the universities, students majoring in agricultural engineering are taking the same 'basic courses as those majoring in any other type of engineering. He pointed out that calculus it ripidlv becoming as important to the operators of a mechanized farm as arithmetic was to the "traditional tamiily farmer." Summarizing, McPherson said that cattlemen are no longer handling cattle the way their fathers did, or for that matter. the way they did a year or so ago. DURING THE first 48 weeks of 1965, the the nation's farm work force averaged 5,737,000 persons, down nine percent from a year earlier, and 19 percent below the 1959-63 average for the period, according to USDA. ACCORDING TO USDA total meat production under federal inspection for the week ended December 11, 1965 was estimated at 527 million pounds, which was two percent below the previous week and 10 percent below a year ago.

MCDANIEL, owner of Mirasol Ranch, Uvalde, Texas, recently announced ,the sale of a one-fourth interest is his Santa Gertrudis herd sire, Masterpiece 511, for a record-high price of $62,500. The buyer was A. 0. Phillips of Plano and Dallas, Texas, noted in Quarter Horse breeding circles, who acquired his first Santa Gertrudis cattle three years ago. The transaction represents a new record, according to McDaniel, with the bull's total evaluation being $250,000. The animal will be six years old in March and has several grand championships to his credit in past years when he was a member of the McDaniel show string. Phillips described the bull as being "to Santa Gertrudis what Three Bars is to the running Quarter Horse." McDaniel, who raised the bull on his ranch, said he was delighted to have Phillips as a partner in the herd sire. MASTERPIECE 511 stands at loose halter while A. 0. Phillips, left, and C. A.

Conner Sees Big Year In 66 WITH ONE good year under their belts already, Florida farmers can look forward to an even better year for their crops in 1966, was the recent prediction of Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Conner. The state official issued his annual outlook statement for Florida crops and marketing, pointing to vigorous growth in employment and consumer income as the key to a continued strong domestic demand for farm products. He said, "Florida has shared in the recent economic growth, and 1966 promises further expansion. Food consumption within the state will increase with the rise in population and consumer income." Farm exports will continue to rise, he said, pointing out that the Florida Department of Agriculture now has on its staff an official who is promoting Florida's commodities for exporting overseas. Labor and taxes will continue to add to the farm production expense burden, but Conner said increased efficiency in production will absorb some of the load, The upturn in cattle prices in 1965 mnv be exceeded this Near, but ('onner cautioned that "rising prices are attracting foreign beef.'' Small hog crops in 19635 have sent prices for hogs and pork up more than 50 percent by year's end. Conner predicted the continuation of high prices well into 1966, "but an increase in pigs raised during the year could cut prices by late 1966 or early 1967." Sonie Florida dairymen were hampered b' unstable marketing conditions in 1965, with producers prices dropping for the second year, averaging about five percent less than in 1964. Conner said he believed some of the problems may be solved with the establishment of marketing orders this year. TOTAL MEAT production in the U.S. for 1966 is estimated at 31.5 billion pounds, according to the American Meat Institute. THE NUMBER of hogs and pigs on farms in the U.S. on December 1, 1965 totaled 54.3 million head, according to USDA. 100 The Florida Cattleman mA FLORIDA BEEF C ATTLE IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION For more information on this program please write J.

R\XEAVES, extension dairyman, University of Florida, Gainesville, recently announced that two cows belonging to a former 4-H member and one belonging to a present 4-H member have exceeded the previous alltime all-breed records in Florida. He pointed out that this accomplishment of 4-H cows surpassing all records offers encouragement in a state with relatively few club members on dairy farms where their 4-H project heifers can be retained after freshening and be placed on DHIA test. The former 4-H member is Johnny Wilson of DeLand, a club member in Volusia County for many years. In 1959 he had a registered Holstein heifer as his 4-H dairy project. He had the highest overall project score in the county's Sears 4-H Dairy Competition (which scored the animal, member's 4-H record book, fitting and showing). For this he was awarded a registered Holstein heifer from the A. J. Rusterholz herd, AJR La Master H Beth 4832831, sired by the ABS sire, Burke La Master Mark 1162188. Reaves said that Wilson continued with his enlarged 4-H dairy project and in 1962, Duchess, his first registered Holstein, was second in milk anf fourth in butterfat in the 4-H production contest, while Beth was first in milk and third in butterfat. In 1963, Duchess, with her Afton Acres Rag Apple breeding background, was first in milk and third in butterfat in the 4-H. Wilson continued in dairying following his graduation from high school in the dairy business his father had started. In August 1964, Beth calved at five years and seven months, and in the following 365 days, she produced 26,690 pounds of milk, 3.3 percent test and 885 pounds of butterfat, which is the highest milk record reported in a year for any age, any breed, Reaves said. The older cow, Duchess, finished a record last November, Reaves pointed out, with 26,130 pounds of milk, 3.2 percent test and 824 pounds of butterfat in 360 days, making her second to her stablemate in the highest Florida milk record classification. She was sired by the ABS sire, Fobes Rag Apple Cyrus 1151863. Reaves added that these cows set new 365 day milk records, but the 305 day milk record made by Cy Bispham, Bayside Dairy, Sarasota, still stands. The present 4-H member setting production and show ring records with a Guernsey cow is Clara Ward, Orange County 4-H'er. Her record-maker is Lay Laine Dorian's Lois 1991035. a daughter of C. L. Ward's proven sire, Mulhocaway Butterfat Dorian .542759. According to Reaves, after completing two state Guernsey class leading records, this cow calved as a senior four year old and has surpassed the previous all-breed-all-time high Florida butterfat record for 305 days, and in her first 330 days, her record shows 1010 pounds of butterfat in 17,570 pounds of milk. This is one pound above the 1009 pounds record made in 365 days by a grade Jersey belonging to T. G. Lee, Orlando. Lois is still milking and should make a 365 day record well above 1050 pounds butterfat, Reaves feels, and should be a national class leader for the breed. Her 305 day record which set a new high for butterfat production in Florida is 16,780 pounds of milk, 5.7 percent test, 959 pounds of butterfat, and 636 pounds protein. She replaced the previous top 305 day record of 914 pounds butterfat in 21,010 pounds of milk made by a grade Holstein owned by M. A. Schack of Greenwood, Reaves added. He said these are a few examples of 4-H members who have gone into the dairy business or developed cows that made production records excelling any in the state and serves as an inspiration and gives encouragement to all who The Florida Cattleman 102

Third Dairy Conferenice Set TF DATES Of May 11-12 have beer selected for the Third Annual Dairy Production Conference at the Universitv of Florida, Gainesville, according to C. W. Reaves, extension dairyman and coordinator of the conference. The annual statewide educational dairv meetings endeavors to bring information on subjects of major current interest in dairy production and marketing, and Reaves said a preliminary meeting of members of the University's dairy staff and representatives of the various dairy organizations rmet durin,, Januirv and made plans for the two d1iy (ent igge stions from individual dairymen, orgaoizations or those in related d&irv work are welcomed, Reaves said, an these suggest ions for topics and or speakers should be sent to him at the University. Ward Guernsey Cow Sets Milking Production Record By PLACING eighth in milk production anong the 10 highest of the Guernsey breed in her class, Lay Laine Superb's Mab. owned by Carroll L. Ward, Jr., Astatui, set a new record, according to the American Guernsey Cattle Club, Peterborough, New Hampshire. Ward's animal produced 16,310 pounds of milk and 743 pounds of fat in the 305 days on two times daily mnilkinc. it w\as pointed out. She was sired by La* Laine Virginion's .upcrb out of liardhauen Hazel Liza -.Inc, and was bred for production, officials said.

In order to nike a good estimate as to whether these diseases are involved or not, two bk)d samples should be obtiin(ed, one taken at the time the initmll was sick and the second two w weeks later. A rise in titer of the secnd siumple is gooI evidiuce of the presence of the disease.

Other conditions encountered included calf Interitis, salmonella infection, uterine necrosis, and toxic hepa titis. Most of our work with horse samples has consisted of blood tests for infectious ane mia and culture of mares for uterine infection. Three additional c(-ses of piroplasniosis have been found in horses on the lower east coast area. Tests for leptospirosis have also been numerous. Ringworm infection, liver inflammation, dehydration, and various intestinal ailments have also been encountered. Another ronth has passed without a case (of hog cholera.

Church St. ORLANDO FLORIDA Phones GA 5-3427 GA 5-3428 Beef Industry Future Is Bright! SEVERAL PERTINENT factors currently affecting fed cattle prices indicate that 1966 should be a banner year for everyone involved in the cattle industry, according to a report from Executive Vice President Art Higbie of the Florida Cattlemen's Association. As a foundation for this comment, he cites: 1) The present pork supply situation; 2) The fact that cattle slaughter weights are below average; 3) Continuation of rising consumer disposable income; 4) High employment rate in the U. S.; 5) Our rapidly expanding population; 6) A definite consumer preference for beef; 7) High prices for cattle by-products. In speaking of national beef demand, he says that the experts predict that national demand will require 35 percent more beef by 1975. Projections indicate that this will call for an additional 11 million cattle and calves to be slaughtered annually and will most certainly require the development of new major feeding areas and development of more modern feeding methods. Naturally, all of the demand for beef isn't encompassed in the circle of the so-called "better cuts." Higbie points out that the White Castle hamburger chain sold 74 million hamburgers in 1950, 107 million in 1960, and 145 million in 1964! Americans spent $413 million for hamburgers in 1964. He says that our industry is confronted by a challenge that is tremendous in scope. Keeping abreast of up-to-date technological information will be more important than ever in the future. The job will require alertness and hard work, but we agree with Higbie's prediction that the cattle industry will meet the challenge and benefit from the dividends that are in the offing. Those Dimes Make Dollars! THE DONATION you make to Florida Beef Council, be it 50 cents or $10, is a very important source of income to help finance the Council's valuable beef promotion program. Your contribution is mighty important, even if you own only a small number of cattle and market but a few head yearly. During the past year, for example, donations of 10 or less accounted for about 60 percent of the Council's income. It is possible that many small cattle owners may not be sending in their 10 cents per head donation because they feel that the small amount would not help the statewide beef promotion program sufficiently. "Every (lime has an impact and is important to our overall program," Tommy Sloan, Beef Council chairman, emphasizes. "A large number of small contributors counts up rapidly in income to the Council and your contribution is highly welcome, whether it be large or small." The Council is experiencing a record income, which will make it possible to have bigger and better promotional activities in 1966. Let's all do our part to keep it that way! Mark Vour Calendar Not! TAKE A LOOK at that new 1966 calendar you've got hanging on the wall and put a check mark on the months of June and October. Why? That's because you should remember to attend the FCA MidYear Conference at Cocoa June 16-17 and the FCA Annual Convention at Panama City October 13-14. Your attendance at these two meetings is important to both you and your industry! 110 The Florida Cattleman
