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).

A NEGUVON application goes to work
almost immediately to kill GRUBS before
they cause damage
Neguvon is a systemic insecticide. It is absorbed into the animal's system. Grubs die as they come in contact with the chemical, thus preventing them from damaging meat and hides. Neguvon is recommended for use in pressure spray equipment in order that the solution will penetrate through the hair and onto the skin. An application of Neguvon for grub control also effectively controls lice and flies for extended periods. Your dealer stocks Neguvon.
See him soon for a supply.
Note: Neguvon is also available as a ready-to-use pour-on formulation for control of grubs. The prescribed amount is simply dipped from the container and poured along the animal's back. 2232

While USSC's HIGH-PROTEIN HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES produces good results when fed as a supplement to pasture grasses having a high level of 12 to 16% protein on a dry basis, it is our experience that USSC's PHENOTHIAZINE-IN-UREA-MINERAL-VITAMIN A-BLACKSTRAP MIX NO. 2-A, or USSC's UREA-MINERAL-VITAMIN A-BLACKSTRAP MIX NO. 5-A will produce superior results, particularly when the protein content of pasture grasses is lower. Note that Mix No. 5-A is the same as Mix No. 2-A with the exception that it does not contain phenothiazine.

Florida's Beef Futures See Price Drop
THE WEAKNESS in live cattle and dressed beef prices that began in early March persists mirroring the continued high rate of cattle marketings. Thus far this P rem ier year, cattle slaughter has been averaging about four percent above the year ago
period. Both cow and heifer slaughter have been up sharply, with the former up about 16 percent and the latter 20 percent, while steer slaughter on the other A ngus hand has been off seven percent.
Meanwhile, fed cattle prices are likely to decline further before the end of the current quarter. Choice steers at Chicago averaged around $28 in the JanF em a le uary/March period, and the average for the current quarter is expected to be
$1.50 or more lower, according to USDA.

fences in crude protein percentages that could be realized using the four different pasture programs described for growth rates are presented in the graph at left, page 26.
White clover addition to a Pangola grass pasture has a large effect on increasing protein contents in the spring. Increasing nitrogen fertilization results in large protein increases during the spring and fall compared to lightly fertilized Pangola grass. These, however, result in relatively low protein levels in the summer. Contrariwise, when S. humilis is growing vigorously in Pangola grass, protein contents normally are above 10 percent. This occurs during periods of low protein contents under normal pasture conditions.

Land Values Up FS
FLORIDA'S LAND, and the improvements in it, are now valued at nearly
$30 billion, according to Fred 0. X
Dickinson, Jr., state comptroller, in
a recently published report. VI
The 35 million acres known as Florida have increased in value nearly 1000 percent since 1916. This
figure was arrived at through research conducted by the Florida As- 40 1
sociation of Realtors, and the total
represents an all-time high in the
accumulation of public and private
wealth in the state.
According to official records, Flor- ,,, E
ida's total value in Woodrow Wilson's time was $305 million, or about
$8.75 an acre. Currently, the comparable valuation is almost $30 billion, or nearly $850 an acre, it was

or more of these.
Persian clover was grown in mixture with White clover early in the Florida pasture development program but never became of any importance acreage-wise. A variety named Abon, selected at Beaumont, Texas, makes more early growth and is leafier than the old Persian clover. This variety made a good seed crop at the Range .....
Cattle Experiment Station in the spring of 1964, but only a slow and scattered stand came in the second year. Abon may be useful as a mixture with White clover.
Alfalfa makes rapid late winter and spring growth when all conditions are favorable. It requires near-perfect water control and is subject to severe leaf disease damage. Production on flatwoods soils is extremely unpredictable. Hairy Peruvian and African are the best varieties available.

ANY PHASE of livestock production must be properly managed if one expects to obtain the desired results, both in quality of the product produced and profits received from the sale of that product.
Dr. Dixon D. Hubbard, one of the speakers at the University of Flor. ida's recent 15th Annual Beef Cattle Short Course, estimates that cattle. men are operating today at no more than 65 percent of potential efficiency. He says relatively simple and basic cost accounting procedures, coupled with present technology, could easily enable cattlemen to operate at 80

FLORIDA CATTLEMEN'S ASSOCIATION A Report from the Executive Vice President IT'S TIME TO MAKE RESERVATIONS for FCA's 1966 Mid-Year Conference at Cocoa Beach June 15-17! Available rooms in the headquarters Ramada Inn are being filled rapidly. If you haven't made your reservations, do it today. Write Jim Oxford, 1125 W. King Street, Cocoa, describing the type of accommodations that you desire. COMPLETE CONFERENCE PROGRAM can be found on page 31 of this issue. The panel discussion of current and projected research into every area of livestock industry production will be of specific interest to every producer. An outstanding feature will be R. J. Crawford, president of the Kansas City Board of Trade, who will discuss a new futures market in live beef feeder cattle. He has agreed to answer questions for 30 minutes. FCA has invited livestock industry leaders from Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi, Florida bankers, and representatives of brokerage firms in the state to attend the Cocoa Beach meeting. FCA EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE will meet at 1:00 p.m. on June 2 at the Robert Meyer Motor Inn in Orlando to hold hearings relating to the financial responsibility, practices and problems in the buying, handling and selling of cattle in Florida. Representatives of the meat packing industry, livestock auction markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, University of Florida, and USDA will all attend to discuss the subject in detail. FLORIDA BEEF COUNCIL Chairman Tommy Sloan wants you to remember that Beef Council now has 600 steak knives available for use at any special events where needed. Please let us have your request far in advance to allow proper scheduling. You'll not be held responsible if you lose a few knives, but we must have them promptly returned to Beef Council headquarters by Greyhound bus. Simply drop a card to Florida B-eef Council, P. 0. Box 656, Kissimmee, advising the number of knives needed and when you need them. Chairman Sloan also expresses his sincere thanks to the livestock markets, packers and individual cattlemen who have made it possible for Beef Council to have another month of record income. A special note of thanks to the Florida Angus Association, who sent in $52.00 as a result of deducting $1 per head at their Gasparilla Sale in Tampa. FCA HONORARY DIRECTOR NOMINEES should be sent in to FCA headquarters immediately! Nominees must be voted on at the Cocoa Beach meeting in June. WE ARE AWAITING specific confirmation from Octavio Ochoa Ochoa, president of the Mexican Cattlemen's Association, but we are hopeful that he and several Mexican cattlemen will find it possible to be in Florida June 10-17.

COMPLETE HARVESTING SERVICE McPherson Reports Grain Rates Should See Reduction Gainesville You may be interested to know that the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy RR has announced a 101%2 cent/cwt. rate on grain from Burlington, Iowa, and points intermediate, to E. St. Louis, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri. We are not yet sure of the precise date this rate will become effective. The rate applies to shipments of 90 tons per car, aggregate minimum weight of 450 tons, shipped at one time, on one bill of lading, (in five-car lots) to one consignee at one destination and the rate applies only on traffic destined beyond -domestic or export. This means that the rate will not apply to shipments unloaded at either St. Louis or East St. Louis. This rate should reduce the margin between the price of feed grains in the midwest and southeast still further than the reduction Southern announced in May, 1963. W. K.

A NEGUVON application goes to work almost immediately to kill GRUBS before they cause damage Neguvon is a systemic insecticide. It is absorbed into the animal's system. Grubs die as they come in contact with the chemical, thus preventing them from damaging meat and hides. Neguvon is recommended for use in pressure spray equipment in order that the solution will penetrate through the hair and onto the skin. An application of Neguvon for grub control also effectively controls lice and flies for extended periods. Your dealer stocks Neguvon. See him soon for a supply. Note: Neguvon is also available as a ready-to-use pour-on formulation for control of grubs. The prescribed amount is simply dipped from the container and poured along the animal's back. 2232 CHEMAGRO CORPORATION KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI 64120

Entitled "Charolais ...for Progress in Beef Production," the booklet is heavily illustrated in both color and black and white photographs. The history of the cattle in France where they originated over 200 years ago, as well as their growth in this country are cited in the booklet. Spokesmen for the breed group said there are now an estimated 35,000 purebred Charolais and another 200,000 recorded crossbreds being used in up-grading programs. During the past year, registrations and recordations increased 31 percent making the breed the fastest growing in the country and the world, it was pointed out. J.

PROFIT-MAKING VALUES I NON-ACID FORMING It-s a completely neutral product contains Calcium It a half Nitrate and halt Ammoniacal I COMPLETELY USABLE Every pound is plant food .3 A F lorida pastures show a tremendous yield-producing response to Nitrogen if Nitrogen needs can adequately be satisfied during critical growth periods. This "balanced" form of pasture Nitrogen feeding is the key to fast, economical gains and better quality beef. And GATOR C.A.N. is the most effective and economical way to provide your pastures with the Nitrogen "balance" needed to get this high quality beef production. Half of the Nitrogen in GATOR C.A.N. is Nitrate for instant use, and the other half is Ammoniacal for a slower release of Nitrogen during the rest of the pasture season. This is not all GATOR C.A.N. does for your pasture crops to help you make more yield-profit out of your fertilizer investments. GATOR C.A.N. is Calcium Ammonium Nitrate, a completely neutral plant food that will not build up yield-destroying soil acidity. GATOR C.A.N. offers an abundant supply of Calcium, one of the essential elements needed for the production of all forage crops. Finally, GATOR C.A.N. is completely usable. There's no waste. The pounds or tons of GATOR C.A.N. you buy, are the pounds or tons your pasture crops use in pure profit-producing yields. So, specify GATOR C.A.N. or use GATOR C.A.N. as your favorite top dresser. Either way, GATOR C.A.N. is the most economical, efficient and safest plant food you can buy.

How Auction Markets Saved Cattlemen $75,000! Florida auction markets must be financially responsible; it is required by the Packers & Stockyards Administration that each market post a bond or provide security of equal value (such as cash) to guarantee that it can pay the livestock man for the cattle sold through his market each week. Last December, a Florida meat packer went broke, and has since gone through bankruptcy. At the time of failure, this business owed a total of over $105,000 for livestock purchased during a single week. Some of this money was owed to individual cattlemen, but the bulk was owed to auction markets. This packer maintained a $10,000 bond, the minimum required by the Florida Department of Agriculture, and from this the creditors received some 9% of the amount due them. (The federal government requires no bond for packers.) In addition, in bankruptcy proceedings, the creditors received an additional 20%. The total loss: in excess of $70,000-largely borne by auction markets. Naturally, the livestock markets don't enjoy standing this kind of loss either. But we do want the cattlemen of Florida to know that they are protected best when they sell through sales organizations of proven financial responsibility-and that all auction markets have to prove their responsibility under federal regulation.

BULLETIN! Research reports greater returns of $27.59 gross and $19.35 net per steer when $8.24 worth of "Blackstrap Molasses" was fed as supplement to pasture for 206 days. Mr. Cattleman -You, too, can increase your steer grass fattening potential with Everglades Experiment Station mimeo report EES65-16 of February 1965, reporting on the above research project, indicates the following results when 12 steers were fed four pounds per day of USSC's HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES for 206 days, as supplement to St. Augustine grass with high protein content, when compared with 12 comparable steers on similar pasture conditions without supplement: 1) Increased average daily gain of 0.35 lbs. 2) Higher dressing percentage of 56.55% versus 52.68%. 3) Significantly higher grades, with one U.S. Good, nine U.S. Standard, and two U.S. Utility compared with eight U.S. Standard and four U.S. Utility for the control group. 4) When sold on a grade and yield basis the average carcass selling price was $163.06 compared to $135.47 for the control group, a difference of $27.59 or $19.35 greater net return per steer after deducting $8.24 as the actual delivered cost of the molasses. Starting value per head was $115.26, compared to $115.94 for control group. 5) The average calculated equivalent net liveweight selling price of the steers was $18.41 for the group receiving molasses compared with $16.53 for the control group, a difference of $1.88 cwt. While USSC's HIGH-PROTEIN HEAVY BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES produces good results when fed as a Supplement to pasture grasses having a high level of 12 to 16% protein on a dry basis, it is our experience that USSC's PHENOTHIAZINE-IN-UREA-MINERAL-VITAMIN A-BLACKSTRAP MIX NO. 2-A, or USSC's UREA-MINERAL-VITAMIN A-BLACKSTRAP MIX NO. 5-A will produce superior results, particularly when the protein content of pasture grasses is lower. Note that Mix No. 5-A is the same as Mix No. 2-A with the exception that it does not contain phenothiazine. If you are interested in more detailed particulars on the above research, or regarding molasses feeding on pasture, please write us or otherwise contact members of our sales department.

J. H. McInarnay, Baker County, Florida, has fed MoorMan's since 1959. In addition to Premix-trate, he uses MoorMan's A-D3 vitamin supplement and MoorMaBoost" to supply antibiotic. "I feel these are aids to economical milk production," he says. Production consistently up, feed cost low, in 7 years on MoorMan's J. H. McInarnay has found MoorMan's to be a profitable investment. His total feed costs are lower than before feeding MoorMan's. And, for 7 years, production has consistently gone up. "I attribute my increased production to various things, including better management," he says. "But I feel that MoorMan's Premixtrate" for Dairy Cows has been a great asset. "Cows produce more milk because of better nutrition, which they get from a ration built around Premix-trate. Another factor in my increased production is better herd health." Mr. McInarnay also likes the flexibility and economy of Premixtrate rations. "I buy the grains and roughages that are most readily available and formulate them around Premix-trate, which saves me money." Mr. Mclnarnay's report of good results with MoorMan's matches the experience of dairymen in many states. And that's because in MoorMan's Premix-trate or Mintrate' for Dairy Cows, you buy only working ingredients. It takes a small amount to provide highquality, carefully balanced proteins, urea, minerals, vitamins A and D to help cows utilize grain and roughage. There are no fillers in MoorMan's -no grain, no roughage, no grain or citrus by-products. Fillers like these can reduce the price per ton of feed you buy-but they can't help you increase your profits. Why not see how MoorMan's can help you get low-cost results?

MARKETING Highlighted At Beef Cattle Short Course Feeding methods for marketing cattle explained; Ranch analyses importance told at annual event UNDER THE leadership of Dr. T. J. Cunha, chairman, animal science department, University of Florida, the fifteenth annual Beef Cattle Short Course got underway on May 5 at the University's livestock pavilion in Gainesville before an audience numbering over 600 including visitors from Latin America, South Africa, Australia and several of the 50 states. The three day event featured problems in marketing cattle and calves, feeding steers versus heifers or bulls, and analyzing ranching operations to determine the aspect of profit or loss. Additionally, a session on foreign markets and programs was featured. Over 50 program participants addressed the gathering including University staff members, industry and government personnel, and cattlemen. Initial speaker to kick off the program following opening comments by Cunha was Doyle Conner, Florida's Commissioner of Agriculture. He prefaced his talk with complimentary remarks directed to the University staff and spoke highly of the South American visitors and the progress they are making in agriculture as witnessed on his recent trip to several of the countries represented. Conner said that his topic, "Value of a Sound Beef Cattle Marketing Program in Florida" might well be entitled "the Life-or-Death Demand for a Sound Beef Cattle Marketing Program in Florida." He traced the growth of the beef industry in Florida from the days of the Spanish settlers in 1565 to its present position as "one of the fastest growing cattle states in the nation." Conner admitted that it appears at times that the odds might weigh too heavily against advancement, but said, "I am reassured by the doggedness and ingenuity of Florida cattlemen who whipped the odds many times over a 400-year history to arrive at the production peak they are experiencing today." Conner stressed that no new marketing wrinkle should be discounted without careful evaluation of its merit, and that new markets should not be overlooked or old markets taken for granted. He closed by saying the Short Course was designed to assist in establishing a blueprint for the continuation of "your economic growth" and pledged that the State Department of Agriculture "will do all it can to help you meet your goals." The next speaker was Roy R. Green, agricultural research division, Swift & Company, Chicago, Illinois, who spoke of new developments in the meat packing industry and chain stores which will affect the beef cattle producer in the future. Green said a major change in the packing area is the decentralization program established through the construction of new plants. These plants are one-story type, compact in layout, and strategically placed throughout the producing areas to quickly and effectively get the product to the consumer-buyer. In referring to the increase in chain JOHN HENRY LOGAN, on right, pre. sented the Florida Bankers' Associatior award for the best production testing program in Florida to L. R. Becker ol Stuart during the Beef Cattle Shori Course at the University of Florida. store outlets, Green said that this ha, had a marked effect on beef consumption increases, due to improved meth. ods of packaging, discounts offered and other factors. He pointed to the need for stability of the pricing structure and stability of quality of production, He warned that in the application ol science and new methods of breeding the demands of the consumer must be watched, also. Beef "futures" was the topic presented by Carl F. Heimke of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He reviewed the futures trading in live cattle since the program was inaugurated over a year ago. Heimke said "futures" trading as such on certain commodities has been in existence for many years, but beef trading is the newest. The acceptance has exceeded expectations, he said, and of the 500 members signed with the Exchange, 200 are connected with the beef industry. There is a lot of opportunity in "futures" trading, Heimke pointed out, and with a little study, an individual can price today for marketing in the future. He said it would be helpful to keep an open mind, study "futures" and select a broker to deal with. David K.

He pointed out these were the first major changes since 1927 and stress was placed on two primary factors, palatability and cutability (amount). Hallett said that on the yield grading system, an awareness of the importance of cutability has been created and this should be continued to be done from the producer's standpoint. USDA can aid the producers, he said, with information on the best type of cattle needed and feedlot operators should also use this information to the best advantage. Last year's winner of the Florida Bankers' Association award for the best production testing program, Orie Lee of St. Cloud, then gave an insight on the methods and tools used in his program. He pointed out that production testing is the best management tool he has found to increase production and quality. Since starting the program in 1963, Lee said the goal is for 500 pound calves at 205 days, and although this figure hasn't been reached as yet uniformly, he figures it will eventually come as a result of the production testing work. Highlighting the opening afternoon session on Thursday was the dedication of the University of Florida's Cecil M. Webb Livestock Pavilion in honor of the late founder and president of Dixie Lily Milling Company. Special guests at the dedication included Mrs. Webb, sons Charles and William Webb and their families, A. D. Davis of Jacksonville and former State Senator W. A. Shands of Gainesville. The regular Short Course program resumed with a talk by W. Earl Faircloth, Attorney General for Florida, who explained the guarantee of protection given owners on land and property in the state. He also gave a comprehensive insight on trespassing violations and reviewed the criminal part of Florida law regarding entering posted land and properties. In covering legal fences and livestock at large as set forth in the statutes, Faircloth said his office will help in every possible way to safeguard the properties of the rightful owners. R. N. Norris, vice president and agricultural representative, The First National Bank, Tampa, then referred to the port facilities developed by Tampa for exporting beef to foreign countries in his address to the group. Much work has been done at the docking area, he said, but also of prime importance was the study made to eventually utilize Tampa International Airport for air shipment of livestock. for June, 1966 FLORIDA'S PREMIER Award recipients at this year's Short Course in Gainesville were from left: Donald Sutton, Sugarland. Ranch; K. D. Eatmon, Pompano Beach; DeLouie Wells, Wells & Skinner Angus Ranch; Bill Miller, AHA representative receiving awards for Double T Ranch; Clarence Cross, Jo-Su-Li Farms; Eddie Brainmer and Dennis Cantrill, Rural Venture Farms; Raleigh Pickels, Stuart Ranch, and Andy Duda of A. Duda & Sons. He said the facility would be controlled by the Tampa Port Authority and the official in charge would be qualified to handle cattle along with being well-versed in the shipping phase of marketing. It is expected to be the most modern livestock facility in the country, Norris said, and closed by saying, "Our goal is to have it ready by the end of this summer." Dr. J. W. Carpenter, associate meats scientist at the University, was the next speaker, and he covered the subject of feedlot performance and gradeability of Florida cattle finished in the midwest area. Specifically, he referred to two groups of steers purchased at a feeder sale sponsored by the Polk County Cattlemen's Association and placed in feedlots in Indiana and Ohio. He said most graded out well in Good, Choice and Prime categories and all in all were "pretty good type of cattle." Carpenter said that more uniformity was needed, according to the buyers, but they can use more of Florida's feeders, which points to a definite market for producers in the state. Following Carpenter's resume, Dr. R. W. Pifer, research department, Central Soya, McMillen Feed Division, Decatur, Indiana, spoke on the group of Angus and Brangus calves from Florida in his company's feedlots. He explained the test pens with 225 head on feed at the same time using rations as fed in the area of production. Pointing out the objectives of the feeding trials, Pifer said they try to get a 2.25 pound gain per day. He said the results were highly satisfactory on the Florida cattle. No problems were encountered in shipment and they eventually made a profit. Florida has the calves, Pifer concluded, and more are needed. Noting the tenth year, the annual presentation of THE FLORIDA CATTLEMAN'S premier awards were made by Bob Cody, publisher. Accepting this year's awards were: Donald Sutton, Clewiston; K. D. Eatmon, Pompano Beach; DeLouie Wells, Bushnell; Bill Miller (southeastern representative for the American Hereford. Association), West Palm Beach; Clarence Cross, Colquitt, Georgia; Eddie Brammer and Dennis Cantrill, Lexington, Kentucky; Raleigh Pickels, Bartow; and Andy Duda, Cocoa. A complete review of winners by breed category can be found in the April issue of THE CATTLEMAN. Also featured on the afternoon program was the annual presentation of the Florida Bankers' Association award for the best production testing program in Florida. This year's winner was veteran rancher L. R. Becker of Stuart, who accepted the award from John Henry Logan, chairman, Florida Bankers' Livestock Committee and vice president and agricultural consultant, The Exchange National Bank of Tampa. Pace explained Becker's program and pointed out that recent shipments of his calves to the midwest resulted in several groups bringing top market prices in the nation for the Florida bred animals. At the evening session on Thursday, J. K. Hartman of the FAS, USDA, Washington, D.C., spoke on the marketing services available from the department. He said their field is international trade and their job is to expand export. With 58 posts over the world, a continual job of up-dating the livestock picture in the various coun23

Hartman said the department is always looking for new techniques to aid the export market and develop international trade. Further speaking on foreign markets, Laurence L. Benson, administrative assistant, Secretary of State, Tallahassee, told of the Florida-Colombia Allance program and plans for the future. Benson said it represents a unique step in relations based on in dividual and personal contact. He said the program has been going on for some three years and he feels that Latin America has a great potential. Although Colombia is the beginning, it was felt that a start had to be made somewhere, but that it is hoped that such programs can be looked for in the other countries to further cement friendship and goodwill in our trade and cultural relations. Dr. Roberto Parajon, marketing specialist, division of marketing, Department of Agriculture, Tallahassee, then addressed the group and covered the work to date of the Florida International Agricultural Trade Council. He said there has been a lack of knowhow in foreign commerce on the part of some Floridians and with the state now in an international position, assistance must be given to livestock producers in the various areas of export. He feels this can be done through an exchange of ideas and work towards a program for the future. B. Edmund David of Winter Haven, president of the Florida International Trade Council, Inc., traced the brief history of the organization. Its purpose, he pointed out, was to promote Florida agriculture and agricultural products in foreign lands, especially those where Florida has the advantage of proximity and similar climatic conditions, and to assure the customer of fair and ethical treatment. He read the Code of Ethics adopted by the Council and subscribed to by its members. David said that FIATC works closely with the state's Department of Agriculture and it really got underway when Conner engaged Parajon as export specialist and offered his services to FIATC as secretary. The organization is non-profit, and is a promotional organization, not a sales agency, and needs a large membership to support its aims, David added. Dr. A. Z. Palmer, meats scientist at the University, reviewed the practices in moving beef from ranch to consumer in Latin America. Based on a recent 24 MANY YEARS of service in grading cattle for the annual Ocala Bull Sale were recognized when D. H. Oswald, at right, presented Jim Pace with a gift on behalf of the Marion County Cattlemen's Association. The ceremony took place during the Beef Cattle Short Course in Gainesville. visit to several of the countries, Palmer told of the methods of feeding for finish along with the type of cattle seen which included Brahman and Santa Gertrudis along with the British breeds. Most of the cattle are slaughtered in the packing plants at night and are in the hands of the consumers the following morning. The trend is to lean beef in the South American countries, Palmer said. Most producers are working to improve their production through improved pastures and other modern innovations. He closed by saying that the assistance offered by this country is appreciated. Green returned to the rostrum to tell of the experiences of Swift & Company in exporting beef to foreign countries. He said the U.S. has not been a factor in world beef export for a good many years, and pointed out that the years just preceding 1900 represent the first prior period when the U.S. was not only a factor but a major exporter of beef. From 1900 through 1963 (excepting the two war periods) U.S. beef was an almost unknown product in world commerce. He said the picture has changed in the past several years and the demand for beef in the United Kingdom and Western Europe is growing and imports will be used to supplement increasing domestic output. The only question is which countries will have the qualities and price levels to export beef to these deficit markets. Green said our beef still has the image of being too fat for most Europeans, and government policies and regulations in several European nations do not encourage U.S. meat iWports. The U.S. is either at a quality, cost or price disadvantage, or all three, in current and prospective European (Continued on page 54) The Florida Cattlema"

Australian Legume Aids Pangola by ALBERT E. KRETSCHMER, JR. Fla. Agric. Experiment Stations ONE PHASE of the agronomic research at the Indian River Field Laboratory has been to find summer-growing legumes that can be maintained in Pangola grass pastures during the summer. Such a legume must be competitive, persist under moderate to heavy grazing, add materially to the quality of the pasture and be acceptable to cattle. Desirable characteristics should permit the use of White clover in the normal way, allow deferred grazing in the fall, cause no unusual management problems, and permit haymaking without adversely affecting normal haying operations. During the past six years more than 40 species of summer-growing legumes have been or are being tested for their adaptability to Florida conditions. Several of the more promising legumes have been tested in replicated experiments growing with Pangola grass, with yields and crude protein contents determined for evaluation purposes. Although there are differences among the promising species with respect to growth habit, seed production and winter survival, the general sumCRUDE PROTEJN% POUNDS DRY MATTER/WEEK 500F 400 300 200 100 ANGOLA--HIGH N S.

The following discussion is limited to one of the more promising legumes, Stylosanthes humilis. It has been used in Australia for many years and appears to be adaptable to flatwoods as well as better drained soils in south Florida. Stylosanthes humilis is a summergrowing, self-regenerating annual legume that "fixes" nitrogen from the air when properly inoculated with "cowpea type" inoculant. It begins growth in the spring when seeds proHITE CLOVER + PANGOLA S. HUMILIS N+ PANGOLA HIGH N -000 duced the previous fall germinate (new seedings should be made in the spring or early summer). Rapid growth begins about the same time that rapid Pangola grass begins. This growth rate continues until sometime in September when flowering begins. Maximum flowering occurs in October and normally an abundance of hard seeds are produced in November. It is acceptable to cattle and persists under grazing. In the above graph are compared the growth rates of Pangola grass under low and high nitrogen fertilization, White clover plus Pangola grass mixtures and S. humilis plus Pangola grass mixtures. It can be seen that all curves have in common the maximum growth rate occurring in the summer. With the exception of the S. humilis curve, the summer growth rates are a result of the Pangola grass growth. White clover and increased fertilization of Pangola grass adds to total production in the spring. Stylosanthes humilis growth, however, in the summer adds considerable dry matter (compare low fertilized Pangola grass and S. humilis plus Pangola grass). Even so, the dry matter production of this mixture is not as great as that for heavily fertilized Pangola grass. The main advantage of using S. humilis is not its drY matter production. The main contribution from S. humilis is in the added quality factor. there are considerable protein PANGOLA--LOW N creases resulting from the inclusion of S. humilis into Pangola grass Pastures plus possibly other quality asSa a a a a pects of the legume itself.

P2ut oumPe e PTE the PROFIT PICTURE WITH HERD KING *. 0 JOIN THE GROWING crowd of Florida beef and dairy cattlemen who are finding the Herd King way to increasing per/acre production while actually cutting labor and feed costs. Sealed storage isn't a new idea, but now Herd King has proved it will work in Florida, handling all types of forage faster, easier, and cheaper. Herd King lets the Florida climate work for you, not against you during the rainy season. You store forage during the fast growing period, and feed it when you need it. When your forage goes through the ensiling process, it gains in nutritive value and in palatability-your cattle will eat it better than hay, and it'll do them more good! NOW is the time to install your Herd King! Ask us for details at the Florida Cattlemen's Association's MidSummer Conference at Cocoa Beach. Clayton & Lambert Mfg. Co. W. W. McGEE P. 0.

Brevard Association Stays Active THE BREVARD County Cattlemen's Association is recognized as being one of the oldest groups in the state having been initially formed on July 26, 1941. At the first meeting to form the organization, W. H. Kempfer was elected temporary chairman, and at the second meeting on August 2, 1941, he was elected permanent chairman of the group for its first year. He was the father of the late George Kempfer of Deer Park, past president of the Florida Cattlemen's Association, whose widow is a current member. The present organization consists of 70 members including 25 cattlemen and members of allied industries. Through the years the association has remained active and regular meetings have been held in the interests of the county's cattle industry. Secretary Jimmy Oxford says it is a close-knit organization working harmoniously together on many activities. An aggressive spirit has always keynoted the endeavors of the association in its work in the county. Some of the original members are still active and one of the features which points up the unity maintained over the years is the annual barbecue event programmed for the members and their families. Current officers are George Francis, president, Cocoa; Frank L. Platt, vice president, Melbourne; Oxford, secretary, Cocoa; Horace J. Fulford, treasurer, Cocoa, and Carlyle Platt, state director, Melbourne. The record of the Brevard association through the years since organizing is clearly indicative of a dedicated group working together to help the overall agricultural picture in Brevard County. ACCORDING TO Florida's Crop ReportIng Service, Alabama, Georgia and Florida had 188,000 cattle on feed on January 1, up 71 percent from October 1, but 10 percent less than a year earlier. ACCORDING TO USDA, commercial cattle slaughter (48 states) totaled a record 32.3 million head during 1965, which is five percent up from the previOus record high of 30.8 million slaughtered in 1964. for June, 1966 29 WELCOME Florida Cattle-men's Association from the Sheraton Cape Colony \CV cordIia lly inv ite -)ou to v isit outr IDiniiig Room aiid Lounige Entertainment Nightly 1275 No. Atlantic Avenue COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA AKS-614 Hybrid _GD Grain Sorghum 5000# Grain/Acre Open Headed Bird Resistant AKS-614 GRAIN equal to CORN IN FEED VALUE Use in feed ration in place of corn, for finishing top cattle.

PETERSBURG 216 Madison Street-229-8301-TAMPA 305 First Street-833-5731-WEST PALM BEACH Agriculture Important to Brevard EVEN WITH the space-age industrial expansion in Brevard County over the past several years, agriculture still plays an important part in the overall economy, according to County Acent James T. "Jimmy" Oxford. T 'here are 722 farms of varying sizes with land areas of the farms amounting to 264,457 acres of the 660,480 acres in the county. The average size of the farms comes to 342 acres. The principal income from agricultural products is in citrus groves which cover a total of 32,000 acres. Ranchers in the county have over 40,000 cattle, both purebred and commercial. Gross sales from citrus annually amounts to $18 million with the cattle industry bringing an annual input of $3 million. Oxford said other agricultural enterprises adding to the county's economy are beekeeping, poultry, dairy products, timber and egg production. These, along with ornamentals and growing of tropical fruit in the Merritt Island area, bring the gross agricultural income to $25 million on an annual basis. Looking to the future, Oxford said that it is expected that citrus acreage will be increased to 40,000 acres by 1975. The beef cattle industry appears to be at a standstill currently because of land values and taxes, but with flood control plans set for the near future affecting the St. Johns River Valley, the possibility of raising cattle in that area of the county on an expanding scale seems probable. He said the area involved in the flood control work is strictly agricultural land, and will be best suited for vegetable raising in addition to the cattle potential. At any rate, Oxford believes the cattle industry will change with the land becoming more concentrated, the utilization of more improved pastures and better management. Improved pasture methods are not new in Brevard County, according to Oxford, as original experiments with Pangola grass were started in the late '40's. Plots were placed in various areas and the grass was passed out to a number of the ranchers interested in development of their areas. A detailed soil study is presently underway in the county, slated to last 36 months. Oxford said it is the first of its kind whereby Experiment Sta36 BREVARD COUNTY'S cattle industry still accounts for a large portion of income on the overall economy. Shown here are some crossbred cows and calves with a Brahman bull in pasture at the ranch of A. Duda & Sons, Cocoa, one of the largest purebred and commercial cattle operations in the area. CITRUS PRODUCTION in Brevard County accounts for the largest portion of agricultural income. This scene is typical of the well-cared for groves existing throughout the area. tion staff members and the Soil Conservation Service are joining forces to arrive at complete and factual information on the soils. This information will be available for use in any kind of endeavor, whether it be agriculture or industrial. In meeting with the modern trends, the East Central Regional Planning Council has been formed consisting of seven counties. The various county agents have been meeting for over a year and a half. In Brevard County, coordination is effected internally with the county planning department, extension service, SCS and the regional planning group in furtherance of the consideration of the county's place in agriculture. Close coordination is maintained with industry in planning and zoning to put agriculture in its right perspective. The prime motive in these groups working together is to reach a planned method of moving ahead in agriculture, Oxford pointed out. And although a transition period is currently being experienced, he said there will always be a place for agriculture in Brevard County. The Florida Cattleman

Box 986 Jim Dugger, Manager Ph: Versailles 606/873-5639 Beef Futures See Price Drop THE WEAKNESS in live cattle and dressed beef prices that began in early March persists mirroring the continued high rate of cattle marketings. Thus far this year, cattle slaughter has been averaging about four percent above the year ago period. Both cow and heifer slaughter have been up sharply, with the former up about 16 percent and the latter 20 percent, while steer slaughter on the other hand has been off seven percent. Meanwhile, fed cattle prices are likely to decline further before the end of the current quarter. Choice steers at Chicago averaged around $28 in the January/March period, and the average for the current quarter is expected to be $1.50 or more lower, according to USDA. Cattle on feed for the five major feeding states placed the number of cattle and calves as of May 1 at 3,397,000 head, slightly less than a month ago but up 19 percent from a year earlier. During the past month, cattle futures have lost 125 points in response to the declines in live cattle markets. As of this writing, most contracts are hovering around their seasonal lows. The futures market has been under pressure from steady speculative long liquidation. In this connection, the total open position has been gradually shrinking while trading volume of late has also slowed. Although it is premature to conclude that the price drop is over, we may be nearing a bottom.

Summer Legumes (Continued from page 26) ences in crude protein percentages that could be realized using the four different pasture programs described for growth rates are presented in the graph at left, page 26. White clover addition to a Pangola grass pasture has a large effect on increasing protein contents in the spring. Increasing nitrogen fertilization results in large protein increases during the spring and fall compared to lightly fertilized Pangola grass. These, however, result in relatively low protein levels in the summer. Contrariwise, when S. humilis is growing vigorously in Pangola grass, protein contents normally are above 10 percent. This occurs during periods of low protein contents under normal pasture conditions. Although no specific experiments have been conducted to determine the compatibility of S. humilis in a White clover pasture it appears safe to say that there shouldn't be any undue competition. One should complement the other. Also, S. humilis appears to be well adapted for reserve fall pasture for grazing or haying. This technique may be of particular good use during the first year of establishment when permitting maximum seed production would enhance the following year's stand. The reserve pasture could be grazed or hayed about the middle of November after maximum seed production has occurred. Florida's Judging Team Scores Well HIGH HONORS were won by the University of Florida Livestock Judging Team in the beef cattle division of the Southeastern Intercollegiate Livestock Judging Contest at Auburn, Alabama, on April 22-23.

Native Bluesteon Grass Put to Good Use At Alico Ran ch In Pasture Program NATIVE RANGE pasture has been put to good use in the cattle operation of the Alico Land Development Company in southwest Florida through effective mechanical control of saw palmetto and the practice of sound followup management. E. R. "Gene" Felton, manager, said that lands owned by the company were first classified for primary use and the master plan is to utilize every acre for what it is best suited, whether it be cattle, citrus or timber. The cattle program is a cow and calf operation using both native and improved pastures in rotation. The concern runs about 12,000 head of cattle on the 118,000 acres located at Devil's Garden. The cows spend about five months on native pasture (when they are dry), and approximately seven months on improved pasture (when nursing a calf). Felton says this system provides for increasing roughage requirements of the cow and growing calf so that maximum weight is obtained on the calf, thus producing higher income from the sale of the calves, most of which are sold as stockers at weaning to midwest feedlots. Another important factor is that dry cows whose requirements are considerably less, can be maintained on native range at very low cost. In 1950 when the operation started, much of the acreage was dominated by saw palmetto (Serenoa repens), a shrubby plant of low forage value which is a perennial, evergreen memALICO Ranch Manager E. R. "Gene" Felton is shown looking over native bluestem grass coming in on area where saw palmetto growth has been controlled. 44 ber of the palm family. The stems are frequently branched and often extend along the soil surface for distances up to 30 feet. Due to the thickness of growth, native grasses are subject to severe competition for light moisture and nutrients, and accordingly are extremely low in vigor. Creeping bluestem (Andropogon stolonifer) is the most important of native grasses, but on poor condition ranges and suppressed by palmetto, it produces as little as 150-200 plus pounds per acre. The situation at Alico was similar, Felton said, and plans were made to chop the palmetto areas to put the native bluestem grasses to good use as forage for the cow herd on a rotating pasture basis. Range improvement has resulted from chopping with a heavy Marden chopper to eliminate the palmetto and other undesirable species, and under the management practices, deferring grazing during the summer growing season to allow for establishment and growth of desirable grasses. Felton said this program has resulted in increasing grass production, principally the native bluestem, from about 270 pounds per acre on the unchopped range to 6750 pounds per acre on the chopped and rested range. The chopping is done from December through March and one time over effectively cuts the horizontal stem and the terminal bud of the saw palmetto. Fringe areas adjacent to marshes, sand ponds and areas along major drainageways are left undisturbed to provide cover for wildlife and shelter for stock. In the followup management practices for deferred grazing during the growing season, successive deferments are applied when cows and calves are carried on improved pastures during the summer months. In addition to the use of the native pastures, improved pastures have been developed over the years at the ranch. Presently, there are about 700 acres of S-1 clover available used mostly to grow out the steer calves. Grasses used in the improved areas are mainly Pangola and Bermuda. Fertilization is normally done initially with an apPROPERLY grazed native bluestem grass is shown at left with plenty of roots to draw more moisture and nutrients from the soil than the system on the right where 80 percent or more of the leaves were kept grazed off through one full growing season, resulting in the short leaves being unable to produce enough plant food for healthy roots.

The cow herd consists primarily of bred up native stock and the bulls used are Angus, Hereford and Brahman. The criss-cross system is observed under the breeding program. Brangus bulls are also being used. The bulls go with the cows the first of February and go out in June. Felton says he hopes in time to shorten the breeding season by one month and take the bulls out in May. He feels that the forage produced by creeping bluestem as a result of a planned system of brush control and deferred grazing is invaluable to a ranching operation. It provides the needed cheap roughage for brood cows when supplemented with protein during the in-between period of fall weaning and first grazing of improved pastures in the early spring. Summing it up, Felton said his program of native-improved pasture rotation has resulted in a better than 75 percent calf crop, and an average of 396 pounds of beef produced per cow per year, and significantly, with a labor efficiency that required one i1511 per 1158 cattle.

HODGES Ona Range Cattle Station COOL SEASON clovers tend to grow as winter annuals when planted in Central Florida, germinating in the September-December period and dying with the coming of warm weather and extremes of wet and dry. White clover often survives the summer period and acts as an unpredictable perennial. A wide variety of these legumes will grow when planted under ideal conditions but only a few have been used in a continuing forage program. White clover occupies most of the Florida acreage planted to clover and the acreage continues to increase. The seedings made in the early 1940's proved Louisiana-grown seed to be superior for Florida conditions. This clover made vigorous growth and a plentiful seed crop when left ungrazed during April or May. Two commercial varieties, Louisiana S-1 and Nolins, are of this type and may live through the summer when there is good drainage and adequate fertilization. Ladino, a White clover which grows at least as vigorously as the Louisiana types, may be blended with them on a 1-1 basis when lower seed cost justifies its use. First-year production of Ladino is excellent but it produces no seed as far south as Ona. Sweet clovers, both white and yellow annual types, are found wild on slag and lime-treated sites in central and northern Florida. This clover grows at somewhat lower temperature range than White clover and normally has a shorter grazing season. The two varieties available are Floranna and Hubam, the latter being selected in Gainesville. These are white-flowered and produce seed in profusion. Annual reseeding of Sweet clover is unnecessary because seeds which fall to the ground may live in the soil for years but cannot be counted on to germinate. Red clover is more erect in growth than White clover and may find some usefulness as a hay crop. Small acreages of this clover have been planted in Florida, mostly to the Kenland variety. Other varieties have outyielded it in plot trials and any increase in Red clover planting may employ one (Continued on page 69) The Florida Cattleman S1 -L V E R I 46

He concluded by saying the outlook over the next three to five years is for little, if any, change in this prospect for U.S. beef moving to Europe. To help Florida use its capabilities in the developemnt of agriculture in tropical countries, a Center for Tropi. cal Agriculture was established at the University in 1965. Dr. H. L. Popenoe, director, told the audience of the role of the University in tropical agriculture and in planning an active role in international efforts. The creation of a Center was necessary to provide coordination of these efforts and to develop a base for expansion, he said. Several courses have been added to the curriculum at the University, including tropical pastures and forages and animal production in the tropics. With the resources on hand, Popenoe said it is hoped they can be used to promote a firm alliance between Florida and many of her tropical neighbors. The second day's session of the Short Course opened on Friday with K. R. Tefertiller of the University's staff presiding. Cunha gave a brief outline of the program at the Short Course and how it tied in with the growth and development of the beef cattle industry in the southeast. He stressed the importance of marketing Florida's calf crop and the feeding practices needed to be followed. W. K. McPherson, professor of agricultural economics at the University covered the development of 400 to 450 pound calves to feedlot size and its importance to Florida. This importance was emphasized when he pointed out that Florida's beef cattle production was exceeded in 1964 by the liveweight of beef consumed in the state by 409 million pounds. McPherson said the potential is here if the capital is invested in the land to produce feed. He pointed out that Florida's beef production could easily be doubled if "we improve our pastures just a little bit." Ralph Cellon, Sr., of Alachua, past president of the Florida Cattlemen's Association, said that if the American farmer does not begin to realize a reasonable return on his investment, the country is going to have to depend on some other nation for future meals. Also improvement is needed in many areas, he pointed out, and more stress must be placed on quality. He said that to meet the future increases Il beef consumption more pounds of quaity beef per acre is a must. 54 The Florida Cattlemn Improving Better ANGUS Modena Plantation Savannah, Georgia Robert C.

The demand for calves for the feedlot was presented by Darrel McAteer of Lykes Feedlot, Brooksville, who pointed out that 30,000 went through the lot last year. McAteer emphasized the importance of taking care of cAlves prior to shipment so that they adjust more readily upon arrival. F. S. Baker, Jr., of the North Florida Experiment Station, Quincy, told of the station's program for developing calves to feedlot size in north Florida. A large economical gain is needed for a successful conditioning program, he said. Cost per 100 pounds of stocker calves going into the program is generally higher than sale price per 100 pounds of feeder cattle at the end of the conditioning period, which makes a large, low cost gain essential. Baker said that management is perhaps the most important factor in a successful conditioning program. This includes availability of high quality forage or silage and supplements, and careful attention to health problems. Pasture development of 400 to 450 pound calves was described by 0. T. Edwards of Quincy who said that conditioning of cattle was a prime requisite. They need plenty of rest, and water when first obtained, and close observation for diseases for from 10 days to two weeks. A forage is provided in the pasture of oats, rye and millet and gains of close to two pounds per day usually result. Edwards said that careful management and close observation pays off, and he cautioned that conditioning them right makes for a sound investment at a nominal cost. The head of the Ona Range Cattle Station, Dr. H. L. Chapman, Jr., said that with an increase in improved pastures, there is no reason why calves could not be kept in Florida. They could be successfully developed out and sold off of pasture or out of the feedlot. Although the quality of cattle is increasing rapidly, many calves produced in Florida are medium quality feeders or less, Chapman noted. This necessitates proper planning in order to profitably utilize both low and high quality calves in beef production programs. Chapman emphasized that regardless of the production program, there is no substitute for good management. The ability to intelligently buy and sell; the experience of properly evaluating cattle and pasture quality; the knowledge to properly feed; constant attention to small details are all vital to a successful enterprise. He warned that to ensure a successful program, (Continued on page 82) A New, Highly Effective Insecticide l 4 MAL-PHENE Recommended Where Insect Resistance Has Become a Problem Stop insect pests and external parasites that steal profits from your livestock by spraying with Dr. Rogers' MAL-PHENE.

S., following the AICA directors meeting in Miami. AICA Holds Miami Meeting CHAROLAlS BREEDERS from throughout the United States gathered at Miami's Deauville Hotel on May 15-16 for the board of directors meeting of the American International Charolais Association. The meeting was held in Florida in deference to the association's president, S. L. Crochet, of the U.S. Sugar Corporation, Clewiston. Many breeders toured Sugarland Ranch the day following the meeting. Committee meetings were held Sunday afternoon, May 15, and the full board met in a marathon session Monday morning to act on committee recommendations. The session started at 9 a.m. and lasted until after 2 p.m. in the afternoon. Most controversial matter was the question of whether to allow 10 percent of a breeder's cattle to be artificially inseminated with imported semen, as is presently allowed, or to raise the percentage to 25. The decision was to table the motion to increase the percentage, and was adopted by an 8-7 vote. H. C. Douglas of K Bar Ranch, Zephyrhills, who is a member of the board, spoke against the increase. Small breeders are not affected, inasmuch as the association already allows small breeders to use imported semen on up to five cows. Executive Secretary Scott Henderson emphasized the continued rapid growth of the breed in both registrations and transfers. The promotion committee reported higher sales in the midwest, traditionally the stronghold of small cattle operations and collectively the home of more cattle than any other section of the country.

Land Values Up FLORIDA'S LAND, and the improvements in it, are now valued at nearly $30 billion, according to Fred 0. Dickinson, Jr., state comptroller, in a recently published report. The 35 million acres known as Florida have increased in value nearly 1000 percent since 1916. This figure was arrived at through research conducted by the Florida Association of Realtors, and the total represents an all-time high in the accumulation of public and private wealth in the state. According to official records, Florida's total value in Woodrow Wilson's time was $305 million, or about $8.75 an acre. Currently, the comparable valuation is almost $30 billion, or nearly $850 an acre, it was pointed out. Meat Prograni Set In State COMMISSIONER OF Agriculture Doyle Conner has announced that final approval hIas been given to the department's meat certification program for state institutionns. Conner said the SDA program should provide considerable savings to the taxpayer. Prior to the change, federal inspectors graded all processed and manufactured meat products purchased by state institutions. The grading service cost the meat packers $7.80 per manhour from the time the inspector left his home station until he returned. This cost was passed on the state in the bid price. Conner pointed out the extra cost will be eliminated by the USDA certification program because state meat inspectors are already on the premises of most meat packing plants in connection with other duties, and no inspection fee will be assessed. He explained that only a few areas that have a heavy workload will require extra manpower. The program is expected to get underway shortly, Conner said. It will be the state inspector's job to certify the quality of the processed and manufactured meat products going to state institutions. USDA inspectors will continue to provide grading service on meat carcasses in federal-inspected slaughter houses. Conner said the certification program already has had an impact on the state's meat packing industry for bidding on state contracts. for June, 1966 59 DARI-BEEF Gain extra pounds of milk or beef from your herd by combating harmful, annoying horn flies, stable flies and lice.

Eatmon Farms manager Charles Wolf, is shown in foreground. Eatmon Hosts Latin Americans K. D. EATMON of Pompano Beach hosted a group of over 50 Latin American cattlemen and their families on May 12. The group visiting in Florida were sponsored by the Florida Department of Agriculture and were accompanied by Dr. Roberto Parajon, of the department. The visitors represented the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Guatemala and Mexico. A pasture tour was arranged to start off the day's activities at the ranch near Loxahatchee where the group saw the Santa Gertrudis cattle and the pasture areas, along with viewing the Quarter Horse bands raised at the ranch. A calf roping demonstration was given by Harold McLeod, ranch manager; Charles Harman, Lakeport; and Buddy Smith, offical classifier for SGBI, Kingsville, Texas. The visitors were then escorted to Eatmon Farms at Delray Beach where they were shown the ranch facilities, including the show barn and Santa Gertrudis cattle. Following a lunch featuring charcoal broiled steak prepared and served by members of the Palm Beach County Cattlemen's Association and their wives, Smith performed a classification demonstration. Eatmon, current president of the Florida Santa Gertrudis Association, has been active in exporting Santa Gertrudis cattle to Latin American countries and recently completed his latest shipment prior to hosting the visiting cattlemen. In additional herd build-up, he acquired the final group of Santa Gertrudis cattle from the Palmer Ranch in Sarasota in early May, which comprised the top bloodlines from that herd. 62 The Florida Cattleman For SANTA GERTRUDIS With The Mark Of Quality Breeding PICNIC GROVES & RANCH, INC.

"Mann" Bailey, was recently named one of America's four outstanding young farmers for 1965-66 in a ceremony at Birmingham, Alabama. The other outstanding farmers named in competition co-sponsored by the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce and the National LP. Gas Association were David A. Blalock, Jr., Linden, North Carolina; J. C. Holland, Plantersville, Mississip. pi; and John Kautz, Lodi, California. The four outstanding young farmers of the nation were selected from among 42 state winners who attended the awards Congress. There were more than 12,000 original nominees in the annual competition. Bailey began building his farming interest as a grade school youngster by raising motherless calves and pigs on the family farm. Before completing high school he was able to purchase 215 acres of land with profits from his cattle business. His operation continued to grow while he was in college, then in 1952, when the livestock market reached a peak, he liquidated his cattle operations and invested in land. With an early start in farming, and armed with valuable advice from his father and a degree in agriculture, in 10 years Bailey built a cattle operation that covers 104,295 acres. He experimented successfully with the improvement of permanent pasture through renovation and legumes, then developed a short breeding season on cattle, starting at 12-15 months of age. Strict selection based on production and breeding ability has helped his herd grow to 6000 head today. A firm believer in running a farm like a business, Bailey maintains complete records of each operation and employs a full-time bookkeeper and secretary. In addition to stock for working cattIe, he owns a stable of 45 Quarter Horses. He is currently serving as president of the Florida Cutting Horse Association and is a director in the Florida Quarter Horse Association. A member of the Florida Cattlemen's Association, Bailey has been elected to nearly every post in his county Cattlemen's Association. He is also active in 4-H Club and FFA work 64

The four day event was held in conjunction with the Florida Industries Exposition, and was climaxed by the gift of two quarters of prime Florida beef to Mrs. Ivy English, a Leesburg housewife. The beef was prominently displayed in a portable cold storage unit throughout the event. Many thousands of visitors submitted entry blanks for the drawing. A great variety of fresh and processed produce, red meats, dairy products and seafood were on display with virtually every major agricultural commodity group lending strong support. Among them were the Florida Beef Council, Florida Meat Packers Association, American Dairy Association of Florida and the Florida Dairy Products Association. An entire wall of the Food Festival, arranged along the order of a modern supermarket, was occupied by dairy and red meat displays. Retail, wholesale and institutional buyers, representing organizations from all over the eastern seaboard, inspected the products and tried samples specially prepared in a "Taste and Test" kitchen staffed by a crew of 10 professional home economists. Florida's Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Conner said that many business contacts were encouraged through buyer-exhibitor contacts made during the period of the Festival.

All-Florida Championship RODEO Arcadia, Florida Manatee Gets Bang's Certificate SOUTH FLORIDA'S first association to attain brucellosis free herd ratings is Manatee County's, and the achievement was officially recognized at a meeting held in Palmetto April 21. Manatee County Cattlemen's Association president T. J. Carter presided over the well attended function which got underway following an evening barbecue. Carter introduced various individuals who were instrumental in pushing the eradication program to a finish and praised the work being done by each of them. Among those singled out by Carter was Earl Kelly, associate county agent, who has been close to the program from the beginning. Kelly gave a resume of activities over the 15 month period and said, "When our cattlemen decided it was time to settle down to business on this project things seemed to start moving for us. This has been a definite marketing achievement, but more important it shows what groups can accomplish by working together." The highlight of the evening's program was Carter's acceptance in behalf of the county asociation of the Modified Certified Area Certificate. The certificate was presented by Dr. C. L. Campbell, state veterinarian from Tallahassee, who also addressed the members in attendance. He commented that over the 15 months, 498 herds were tested by team members. "This has been done primarily in a 'down the road' type testing," he said, "and this is the first step toward attaining modification. It is a strong achievement, and it seems that Manatee County has taken up where other cattlemen tended to drop off in 1959. The county has proven itself a leader." Other speakers of the evening were: DR. C. L. CAMPBELL, right, state veterinarian from Tallahassee presents the Modified Certified Area Certificate awarded to Manatee County recently for their brucellosis eradication program. Accepting is T. J. Carter, Manatee County cattleman and president of FBCIA. Mrs. Murray Harrison of the Manatee CowBelles; Vick Blackstone, past president and director; Dr. Charles Field, chief of brucellosis testing; Dr. Carey Thornton, USDA veterinarian.

Legnme Varieties (Continued from page 46) or more of these. Persian clover was grown in mixture with White clover early in the Florida pasture development program but never became of any importance acreage-wise. A variety named Abon, selected at Beaumont, Texas, makes more early growth and is leafier than the old Persian clover. This variety made a good seed crop at the Range Cattle Experiment Station in the spring of 1964, but only a slow and scattered stand came in the second year. Abon may be useful as a mixture with White clover, Alfalfa makes rapid late winter and spring growth when all conditions are favorable. It requires near-perfect water control and is subject to severe leaf disease damage. Production on flatwoods soils is extremely unpredictable. Hairy Peruvian and African are the best varieties available. Berseem makes rapid growth on well-prepared land of above average fertility. It has a potential for use as a green-chop but much remains to be learned concerning this clover on flatwoods soils. Crimson clover will grow to maturity on well-drained soils with adequate moisture but has no value in central Florida. Hop clover is a low-growing variety which is highly susceptible to downy mildew attack. Black medic is a close relative of alfalfa which produces seed in small coal-black pods and may be seen volunteering on highway shoulders. Ball and Mike clovers make some growth but are not persistent and in no way equal to White clover in this area. Sub clover makes substantial forage growth and some seed is produced but there is no liveover of plants or germination of the seed crop. Osceola Elects AT THE annual meeting of the Osceola County Cattlemen's Association held in Kissimmee recently, Jennings Overstreet, Kissimmee, was elected president for the ensuing year. Other officers named to posts for the period were: Ham Brown, Kissimmee, vice president; Jim Smith, Kissimmee, secretary, and Clifford Chapman, Kissimmee, treasurer.

Good in conformation and balance, we feel a strong future is in store for her. THE PROOF OF A STALLION IS IN HIS GET! Both the above horses are by our AQHA Champion, Bando's Pete. We have several of his colts for sale at the ranch right now as well as a good selection of Quarter Horses of all ages. Book is closed on "Pete" this season, but we're already working on next year so it's not too early to plan to breed your good mares to him. We have a few bookings open for Twenty Gold P-3243, a half brother to the immortal Hollywood Gold. He breeds well and his colts are good. If you're looking for a colt that's a good prospect, if you want a Quarter Horse for any purpose, or if you want the service of a good sire, stop by to see us. Jim Glenn, our new trainer who joined us in March, is on hand at all times and we'd like you to meet him. In addition to working with our operation he is also taking a limited number of outside horses for training.

Circuses Bring Income to Florida's Agriculture Press Agent Saws by ETHEL HALES STANCIL MRS. WILLIAM "Jackie" Wilcox is Press Agent for Sells & Gray Circus. When I had lunch with her recently and asked her if she was familiar with THE FLORIDA CATTLEMAN she replied, "Oh, yes. I've seen it in my hometown of Waterloo, Iowa-the home of the National Dairy Cattle Congress." My son, Hale, went there as a representative of his FFA chapter. Mrs. Wilcox is such a fascinating person that immediately I wanted to tell you about her and the circus. How does she fit into Florida agriculture? Like all circuses, Sells & Gray winters in Florida. This year, at Circus City, Sarasota. Circuses are made up of people and animals who certainly must eat! At Sarasota-hay, grain, fresh meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products. On the road local businesses are always patronized for these products besides fuels for the engines, etc. Mrs. Wilcox and her husband have worked for circuses for 37 years. He retired two years ago. She graduated from the University at Ann Arbor, Michigan with a journalism and liberal arts degree. Then she met her husband-to-be. "I was sorta denounced by my family for a couple of years, for marrying into the circus," she says, "but then they became circus fans too!" Publicity for the circus is of course Mrs. Wilcox's "line." She pens the writeups for the newspapers and contracts the advertising space. Four men who have been with her over a period of years help to let the communities know when the circus is coming to town. Billboards, posters shout the story. "Circus people used to be noted for their rowdiness. This description certainly does not fit them today. My sister, Mrs. Ralph Hunt says, 'Show people are even human beings!' It For The CowBelles RENN UNDERWENT surgery on the eye in which she lost sight in the accident which crippled me in 1951. Drs. Tierney and Copenhaver at the J. Hillis Miller Medical Clinic at the University of Florida performed the operation, which could not result in her seeing but which it is hoped will improve the eye's appearance. The clinic is a wonderful place for those in need of its facilities. If ever feeling despondent, sorry for yourself, visit there. You'll come away counting your blessings and being grateful for such a wonderful hospital. SIXTEEN MONTHS old grandson Alex has advanced (?) to the point where he plays cowboys with his four year old brother, Teddy. He'll hold a toy pistol on him and say, "Bang, bang," delighting when Teddy "rolls over dead." Do most modern youngsters play this way? I taught my children to "play shoot" birds, rabbits, bears, etc., not people. IF You burn your own trash at home do be careful. A trash burner should hold it and it should not be burned unless the wind is very low and the ground dampprobably in early morning or after a shower. Stand by with a bucket of water, also, and douse the coals' when the fire has burned low, until all live spots are dead. A neighbor set a trash fire and left it unattended on a windy dry day. It did considerable damage to her neighbors' fences and pasture lands and threatened our homemakers' club house. MY COUSINS, twins Marolyn and Carolyn, nearly three are identical. They have learned to play tricks on their elders who ask, "What's your name?" Carolyn will say she's Marolyn and Marolyn will say she's Carolyn. Initialed pins help to keep others straight! 76 The Florida Cattleman

FLORIDA COWBELLES ASSOCATION Route 1, Micanopy. Florida President Mrs. Cedrick Smith, Micanopy First Vice President Mrs. L. E. Everett. Dade City Second Vice President Mrs. James Stephens, Sun City Third Vice President Mrs. Thomas L. Sloan, Fort Pierce Secretary-Treasurer Mrs. Alan Becker. Reddicc was we who got her and her husband interested in show-business. They own the Golden Empire Show (carnival) which plays at Southern fairs. They wintered last in the fair grounds at Inverness. "Show people are hardworking and positively clean. Can you imagine a tipsy man tying to walk a rope? They are also very religious. The Rawls family of performers with us is typical. They have a trampoline act in which all seven children from the three year old to the 12 year old perform. On Sundays wherever they are they attend church. What a pretty sight to see all nine of them dressed in Sunday best coming single-file out of their mobile home en route to church. "Most performers own their homes and are real solid citizens off-season, which is from November to April. Home to Mrs. Wilcox is Hot Springs, Arkansas, where she and her husband own their home. Since her husband's retirement he of course is there. He has his flowers and enjoys puttering around the yard. Numerous good neighbors send "poor Mr. Bill" something to eat because his wife's gone-in Mrs. Wilcox's words. Every Sunday morning at 10 o'clock Mrs. Wilcox calls him. "We hibernate in winter," Mrs. Wilcox says. "Then during season out ahead of the circus blazing the way." It may look like the circus "just comes to town" but considerable planning is necessary to assure its success. The general agent must find the grounds for the circus and get contracts signed, after the schedule is tentatively mapped out. The press agent and her advertising department must tell the people that the circus is coming-when and where. The next time you see signs telling of the coming of Sells & Gray Circus to your town, think of Mrs. Jackie Wilcox and the fascinating roles of all those connected with the circus. ,& I I Never teed RANCH PANTS PERMANENT KORATROM PRESS Sqw AV,n jr-" WRTFRN WUIMT I Guaranteed 12months Pants and shirts in choice of polyester/cotton an te AnH n EA fabrics and colors. and other WASH 'n WEAR HALPERN & CHRISTENFELD, I NC 101 WEST 21ST STREET, NEW YORK 10011 -LOS ANGELES DENVER See these H-Bar-C Dealers: McLelland Shoe & Saddle Shop, Lake Worth Ranchland, Fort Pierce Persons, Inc., Kissimmee The Quality Shop, St. Petersburg Gainesville Stockman Supply, Gainesville B.

Annual Dairy Conference Held at U. of Florida THE THIRD Annual Florida Dairy Production Conference, which was held in McCarty Hall auditorium on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville May 11 and 12, saw more than 200 persons affiliated with the Florida dairy industry attending. This "registered attendance" figure was comparable with last year's, and was considerably higher than that at any of the old dairy field days which the conference now replaces. C. W. Reaves, the extension dairyman for the university's Dairy Science Department, acted as chairman of the two day conference. Following an official welcome by head of the department Dr. E. L. Fouts, in which were outlined the various topics to be presented and discussed by the speakers,. Reaves led the program directly into its theme: "Pathways to Efficient, Economical and Effective Dairy Production." The theme itself varied from last year's and was generally approached from the standpoint of solutions and aids made available for the dairyman in Florida through the extensive research being conducted both at the university and on a national level. Coupled with this was a second concurring treatment of the theme-that of practical application of dairy science production and procedures. The first speaker of the day was Dr. Ralph Eastwood, extension economist, whose topic dealt with the outlook for the coming 12 months for milk and feed supples and prices. Stating that the general business outlook for the period in point could conceivably be a record, he went ahead to back this up by citing a number of examples of proof. According to Eastwood, dairy cattle numbers have declined noticeably on a national scale because the cattle cycle peaked recently. Although the cow population seems to be down everywhere else, Florida's is up, as is the total production per cow figure. While costs of inputs (operational costs) show a tendency to increase, this will be offset in a large part by the rise in milk prices. Dr. E. L. Corley, who directs USDA's dairy cattle research branch in Beltsville, Maryland, spoke next on tomorrow's dairy cattle as influenced by the USDA cow and sire evaluation program. Corley began by commenting that the key to optimum genetic improvement in dairy cattle is the effective use of genetically superior sires, and for this reason his organization's research and evaluation program is performing a valuable service in the national dairy production picture. Following Corley on the program was Dr. Bobby Duck, assistant agronomist with the university's experiment stations, who discussed yields of summer annual forage crop varieties. Duck OTHER AWARD RECIPIENTS at the Dairy Production Conference included, left to right (front row): Jake Collins, Bradenton, small herd division winner; Glenn Carlton, Jay, large herd division winner; Bruce Christmas (representing W. W. Bradley, Orange County DHIA supervisor); Albert Webster, Marianna, Jackson County DHIA supervisor. Left to right (back row): H. B. Gassaway, Sealtest Corporation, Efficient Dairy Production award sponsor; C. W. Reaves, University of Florida extension dairyman and conference chairman; Venton Heitfield, Elfers, second place winner in large herd division competition; Dr. E. L. Corley, USDA, Beltsville, Maryland. 80 LOUIS GILBREATH, left, representing the Florida Bankers' Association, presents the association's award trophy to Russell Reagan of Palmetto during the Dairy Production Conference banquet. Reagan was named state winner in the Dairy Herd Management program stated that forages are becoming increasingly more important to dairymen as they shift to a more intensive and efficient system of production, and this has prompted the breeding and release of many new forage varieties. The next speaker was Dr. Barney Harris, Jr., assistant extension dairyman at the university, who spoke on heavy concentrate feeding in the form of a balanced "complete feed." He discussed the advantages of stepping up content of the ration and, at the same the total digestible nutrient (TDN) time, maintaining a healthful balance of the diet. Harris suggestetd that anyone wanting to explore a concentrated feeding program contact him at the Dairy Science Department. Dr. S. P. Marshall, dairy husbandman, presented the subject, "Calcium and Phosphorus Nutrition in Relation to Milk Fever." He said that milk fever is caused by a low blood calcium condition, and the most effective common treatment is the intravenous infusion of calcium gluconate. Marshall also outlined the requirements per body weight pounds of calcium and phosphorus for maintenance and lactation. Some views on calf raising were presented by Dr. J. M. Wing, an associate professor in the Dairy Science Department. It was his premise that a breeding program in which offspring are at least equal to their dams is the only practical means of maintaining high quality in good herds and improving average herds. In dealing with his subject, Wing made a general exploration of methods of care and treatment used in handling the calf raising phase of the dairy industry. He also dealt with the management aspect of such an operation. The Florida Cattleman AOW%

A presentation on personnel management and labor by Dr. J. H. James of the university staff followed. His brief comments preceded a panel discussion on labor problems facing the milk producers. Panel members were Florida dairymen L. E. Geiger, Louis Larson and Darrow Robinson. C. J. Wilcox of the Dairy Science Department spoke on the effect of crossbreeding on productive life spans and the life span of Al sires. Significant among research findings Wilcox mentioned was that productive life spans tended to decrease over the time period studied and crossbreeding could be disappointing. Wing returned to discuss cane molasses in high concentrate rations, and Marshall closed out the first day's program by speaking on grain sorghum as opposed to corn silage for milk production. The following day's session opened with a subject presented by Dr. C. B. Plummer, extension veterinarian, in which he dealt with vibriosis and anaplasmosis vaccines. Covering a number of phases ranging from cause to prevention of both diseases, he stated the recommended prevention against vibriosis is a bacterin caller vibrin. It should be administered in a two c.c. dosage 30-60 days before the breeding season begins, and all females of breeding age should be vaccinated. In preventing anaplasmosis daily doses of aureomycin have proven effective in some areas. Also, a vaccine called Anaplaz is now available which gives protection against chronic infections. After Corley returned to give a resume on his subject of crossbreeding of dairy cattle which was presented the first day, there was a general discussion on the brucellosis program. This was conducted by Dr. J. B. Healey, veterinarian in charge of USDA's animal health division in Jacksonville and Dr. C. L. Campbell, state veterinarian from Tallahassee. In handling their subject they dwelt with the status of the program, primarily in Florida, but nationwide as well. John Nord, market administrator for the southeastern Florida and Tampa Bay milk marketing areas, concluded the speaker segment of this year's conference by discussing the Class One Base Plan and its possible use under federal milk orders. Other speakers appearing on the program over the two day period were Dr. H. H. Head of the Dairy Science Department who covered diet effects on calf metabolism and Doyle Golden, chief of the pesticide residue section from Tallahassee, who spoke on pesticide residues in milk and feeds.

Haverhill Rd. West Palm Beach, Fla. 33406 Phone 683-1701 Short Course (Continued from page 55) none can be left out. George Terry of Orlando described his program for developing good and low quality calves in the Everglades area on land acquired in 1954. A shortage of steers caused the firm to start to buy the 400-500 pound calves, and through a sound management program, have found that low grade calves can still bring a profit. Most of the calves are purchased through auction, with some at the ranches and other through commission agents. Terry said that it is most important to have a good health program and feeding within the bounds of sensible economics. J. 0. Pearce, Jr., of Okeechobee, explained his program of developing calves on pasture. Varieties of grasses are utilized under the program and supplemental feed is furnished, which Pearce said more than pays off. The animals are fed out to between 950 and 1050 pounds and can go on to a feedlot for further finishing or to the packer for slaughter. Pearce said the market must he watched and all trends must be considered. He added that this knowledge plus a sound program, will bring the desired profits. Another rancher, Herbert E. Brown of Trenton, gave his views on developing lower grade calves. Brown said to him, a health program was a must in setting up the animals when first acquired. As he gets calves, they are immediately injected with penicillin and Vitamin A and they are kept under close observation in a confined area for approximately two weeks. After being placed on pasture, supplemental feeding is done when needed, and worming and spraying is done as often as necessary to keep healthy animals that will make economical gains. Baker returned to give a review of fattening heavy calves weighing 500 to 600 pounds in the feedlot. He said that despite rather efficient calf gains, a margin of about $3 per 100 pounds between cost of feeder calves and sale price of finished cattle would have been needed for a modest profit. The longer feeding period required for calves offset to some extent their greater feed efficiency as compared to yearlings, Baker pointed out in conclusion. McPherson then posed the question upon his return, "Who will buy Florida's feeder calves in the future?" In answer he said it depends largely on what the ranchers themselves do with respect to quality, quantities, and the 82 time and weights calves are offered for sale. Generally, all conditions have been improving, McPherson said, and with some more effort changes can be made in the marketing system that will enable Florida farmers to produce a larger portion of the state's beef supply and do it profitably. Through cooperation with markets and feedlot operators producers can help improve the marketing system, and attract more buyers and get better prices through uniformity and year around supply. Ralph Cellon, Jr., of Alachua spoke on the subject of cooperative feedlots and pointed out that the packer must have a product constantly. He must get cattle regularly with the desired carcass, and if he doesn't, will feed them out himself. Cellon said through the use of technological advances, computers and other devices, the cooperative feedlot will be in a position to carry out the desired results and aid in supplying the desired animals. He closed by saying, "I believe in the future of the feedlot business in Florida." Fred Goedert, Jr., of Jacksonville, packer and feeder, said the biggest problem is getting feeders when they are needed which are in the 650-680 pound range. They must have them going in 52 weeks and coming out fed in the same number to keep up with the market demand. He said he would rather get Florida feeders than out-ofstate due to less stress involved in shipping. McAteer returned to give his views on what kind of feeders are needed and when they are needed. He stated that there is a shortage in the spring of the year and mentioned that cattle placed on feed in the second and third quarter brought the packer and producer the highest prices. They need the Florida bred kind, he said, that know how to eat and go right to the trough. McAteer laid emphasis on the many advantages in providing animals in the spring of the year for the feedlot. At the Friday evening session, Pifer was heard again as he described the procedures for developing good quality feeder calves on corn silage in midwest feedlots. Following a comprehensive description of the feeding method followed including slide presentations, Pifer said that corn silage produces more T.D.N. thus more beef and more income per acre than either ear corn or shelled corn for the cattleman who feeds his corn crop as silage. Summing it up, he said corn silage is the best bet for feeders who produce all or most of the corn they feed to cattle. The Florida Cattlenman

Dairy Cover DAIRY PRODUCTS were featured in this gigantic display at the Festival of Florida Foods held in Orlando April 19-22. Most of the dairy products lined the wall (right background), and these along with the other food displays attracted the attention of over 75,000 visitors which included scores of major buyers for retail, wholesale and institutional organizations. Developing good low quality calves in Texas was the topic covered by Dr. Dixon D. Hubbard of Texas A&M University. He told of the large feedlots in Texas which presently number approximately 250 with most in the Panhandle area of the state. The reason for this is that 80 percent of the milo grown in Texas is produced in this area. He said this abundant feed supply plus a dry mild climate for feeding has been the major reason that Texas has increased cattle-on-feed from 250,000 in 1960 to 525,000 currently. Many calves are obtained from the southeast and Florida, Hubbard said, but he felt that better growing out procedures should be observed by Florida producers and more stress placed on the use of quality breeding bulls and high producing cows which will go a long way in eliminating the inefficiency in the beef cattle industry in the present time. R. D. Bennett of Greenwood described his program for developing lightweight calves on oats and rye pastures from the point of arrival at the ranch. In referring to some of the south Florida cattle obtained, Bennett said they do well on initial hay and grain and then on pasture. He looks for close to two pounds gain per day and usually gets it and likes cattle that grade Choice. Bennett showed colored slides of some of the representative cattle as developed under his program. To determine the efficiency of the livestock marketing in Florida, "we should take a look at our marketing system and opportunities in the future." This is what John D. Stiles, director, division of marketing, Florida Department of Agriculture, told the audience. He spoke of the changes over the past 20 years in production and marketing of Florida cattle with the cattlemen's market outlets before World War H confined largely to local butchers, shippers, dealers and other farmers. Now there are a number of auction markets which has increased buyer competition and aided RAH CATTLE CO.

For the future, Stiles said there is a two to five cents per pound increase awaiting all Florida producers or groups of producers who will put in action an orderly marketing program for our calves now being shipped outof-state. An improved marketing handling system for calves must be developed if we are to reap profits from the great cow-and-calf industry of our state, Stiles said, and the decision rests with the cattlemen of Florida. The State Department of Agriculture is ready to be of service, he added. An interesting portion of the Fridday evening session was a pauiel of Florida ranchers giving their experiences with marketing their calves and suggestions for improving marketing in Florida. The panel, moderated by Pace, consisted of Henry Chitty. Micanopy; Gilbert Tucker, Cocoa; Ralph Sexton, Vero Beach; Dick Kelley, Stuart; and Alto Adams, Jr., Fort Pierce. The program for the evening was concluded with a summary of the day's discussions and topics given by McPherson. At the Saturday morning and final session of the 1966 Short Course presided over by Dr. A. C. Warnick of the University, Chapman returned to give a review of procedures for fattening cattle for slaughter on pasture. He emphasized that good quality pasture is an essential ingredient for a successful steer-fattening program on pasture and that you should "balance quality cattle with quality pastures." Chapman warned that anyone in the steer feeding business must know marketing along with a sound knowledge of good feeding practices. Dr. J. F. Hentges, Jr., associate animal nutritionist at the University, gave his version of when is it more profitable to feed heifers than steers. The answer, he said "is when the spread in price between stocker steers and heifers is wide and the spread in price between slaughter steers and heifers will be narrow." In covering how long should heifers be fed, Hentges said it is difficult to say because of the difference among states in markets for slaughter heifers. He said heifer calves and short yearlings fatten in a shorter period of time than steers, and then explained several of the points encountered in numerous experiments conducted at the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station with fattening heifers of different breeds. He closed by saying it can be done and appears profitable. Dr. D. W. Beardsley of the Everglades Experiment Station, Belle 84 Glade. and W. C. Burns of the Brooksville Beef Cattle Research Station, Brooksville, gave separate presentations of feeding trials conducted. Beardsley told of feeding bull, steer and heifer calves for carcass beef and explained the feeding periods and ingredients, while Burns gave the feedlot performance of Santa Gertrudis bulls, steers and heifers at the Brooksville trials. Carpenter returned to the rostrum and gave information on carcass data of the Belle Glade animals. He said in mixing the wholesale cuts up the federal graders encountered some difficulty in determining bull and steer cuts in some cases. In getting the reaction of a well-qualified taste panel group, broiled steaks were sampled and no difference in tenderness was noted between the bull, steer or heifer cuts. Carpenter said in the next few years, more information should be available to aid federal graders and others. Gifford Rhodes, livestock specialist with the State Department of Agriculture gave some answers on what can the cattleman do to determine what he should get on the market for his cattle. He laid importance on getting the latest market information, keeping better records and becoming more proficient in evaluating grades of cattle, along with establishing a reputation for careful handling of livestock. Rhodes said the livestock auction markets with their qualified personnel can greatly aid the producer in getting the profits desired. The closing speaker for the Short Course program was Clifford Alston, economist with the Extension Service, who said that ranchers can do two things to analyze the profitableness of their business. That is, improve records and learn how to analyze records. In emphasizing certain points, Alston said the most important record a rancher can keep is an inventory of animals. Also, to keep records of cattle transactions. By keeping proper records, plus income tax records, an analysis can be prepared, he pointed out. A rancher must know more about his operation now in terms of pounds produced and purchased, Alston said, and know more about land usage in terms of harvested forage crops, improved pasture, unimproved pasture, and other land. This knowledge can come from properly established records. He terminated his remarks by warning that the day is going when land, now valued high, is used as range land. And those with just 50 or 60 percent improved pasture now are making the profits. The Florida Cattleman

Coordinated Joint Promotions Help Boost A good example of these joint efforts was the recent Florida West Coast Food & Equipment Show held at the St. Petersburg Bayfront Center. The show, designed for hotel, motel, restaurant and food service industry personnel received added help with the host Pinellas County Chapter 8 of the Florida Restaurant Association joining with the Florida Beef Council and the Florida Cattlemen's Association in boosting beef. During the event, held over a two day period, over 35,000 persons attended. One of the highlights was a retail and wholesale meat cutting demonstration using a rib furnished by the Beef Council. The beef was later awarded to the holder of the lucky number in a drawing. Our thanks to all who helped including Howard Johnson Restaurants; Frank Boore, show chairman; E. T. Hoyt and T. V.

SIPPEL, V.M.D. Florida Dept. of Agriculture JUNE AND the succeeding two months are the time when treatment for cattle grubs should be administered if you have observed grubs in the backs of your cattle this winter and spring. One of the systemic insecticides can be applied as a dip, spray, or pour-on (CoRal), as a spray or pour-on (Ruelene), or as a 40 percent bolus or mixed in the feed (Ronnel or Trolene). These products, as with all other insecticides, should be administered strictly in accordance with the manufacturer's directions coming with the product. Poisonous plants to be expected during June include nightshade and lantana, as Well as bracken fern. Nitrate poisoning appears in cattle on heavily fertilized small grain pastures, Sudan hybrids, or ensilage. Our toxicology department can check for nitrate in these forages. By quantitating the amount present in silage, the amount of dilution with other feed can be calculated and safe use made of the ensilage. May has seen the advent of deerflies and cases of anaplasmosis can be expected to begin appearing in June and pick up in numbers into the fall. A new vaccine is available to protect against anaplasmosis. Two conditions produced by good pastures include white muscle disease and enterotoxemia. White muscle disease has been seen in April and May and will possibly continue into June in calves nursing cows on good clover pasture. Enterotoxemia (over-eating disease) is also seen in calves nursing cows on good pasture. This probably results from consumption of more milk, and possibly pasture, than the calf can handle. This allows toxin production by certain germs in the intestinal tract that causes the rapid death of the calves. Cattle with a mineral imbalance or deficiency of copper have been detected frequently in June in years gone by. Attention should be paid to the mineral supplement provided to grazing cattle to ensure that it is adequate in composition and amount. Consult your veterinarian or county agent on this matter. Cases of encephalitis (staggers) USually appear in June in horses that 88

The tropical horse tick, that is a transmitter of piroplasmosis of horses, also becomes numerous in June. Horses can be protectetd against these ticks by spraying with 0.5 percent toxaphene and treating the ears with one percent lindane in cottonseed oil. Special attention should be given to the ears, mane, tail, and nasal cleft. Sores on the legs of horses called "leeches" begin to appear in June and should receive very prompt veterinary attention if the horse owner desires to have this very stubborn growth arrested. During May, we have found more cases of fluke infestation than any other problem. Stomach and intestinal parasites have also been numerous. Our new rapid diagnostic techniques for blackleg, malignant edema, and redwater disease have enabled us to make a prompt diagnosis in several cases caused by these germs. White muscle disease, pneumonia, and scours have been noted in calves that have been brought to the laboratory. There has been a decline in the number of cattle found with vibrio infection. Among our unusual autopsies have been an animal that died from intestinal strangulation and another that died from being trampled in a truck. Other conditions noted have been enterotoxemia, bloat, Johne's disease, and parainfluenza. The large liver fluke, which ordinarily infests deer, was found in one cow brought in for examination. Horse diseases seen during May included infectious anemia and parasitic infestation with strongyles (bloodworms) as our most frequent diagnoses. A very unusual case of actinomycosis of the liver of a horse was found. A foal that appeared to be a dummy was found to be suffering from a central nervous system infection. Navel infection was found in two foals. Rhinopneumonitis (viral abortion) was detected in some foals presented for autopsy. A skin disease proved to be caused by ringworm. Other conditions noted have been a severely contracted foal, Klebsiella infection in the urinary bladder, cancer in the lungs and elsewhere in different horses, pneumonia in a foal, several semen samples from stallions have been taken for examination and many blood counts examined, etc., that were more or less normal. Again, no cases of hog cholera have been detected during the period of this report. Eperythrozoonosis (anaplasmosis-like disease of swine), leptospirosis and some hogs that had been shot were brought in by the Sheriff's Department for examination. for June, 1966 89 Your Southwest Florida Headquarters For 707 Horse Conditioners Borden's Mirra Coat for Horses Veterinary Supplies Jim Dandy Feeds PDQ Mineral Supplements Hector's Cattle Minerals Kopper's pressure-creosoted Posts Continental Chain Link Gates Farm Fencing & Barbed Wire Wilson & Toomer Fertilizers Producers Fertilizers Insecticides & Pesticides Dr. Roger's Sprays & Drenches Cooper's Sprays & Drenches Morton's Stock Salt & Water Softener Salt Fiber Glass Mineral Feeders Hudson Livestock Water Tanks Hold 'Em Cattle Back Rubbers Our 21st Year 3371 Palm Beach Blvd. -ED 4-3431 FORT MYERS, FLORIDA CATTLE HEAD CATCHER Large enough for the biggest animal.

Church St. ORLANDO FLORIDA Phones GA 5-3427 ., GA 5-3428 Proper Management Really Counts! ANY PHASE of livestock production must be properly managed if one expects to obtain the desired results, both in quality of the product produced and profits received from the sale of that product. Dr. Dixon D. Hubbard, one of the speakers at the University of Florida's recent 15th Annual Beef Cattle Short Course, estimates that cattle. men are operating today at no more than 65 percent of potential efficiency. He says relatively simple and basic cost accounting procedures, coupled with present technology, could easily enable cattlemen to operate at 80 percent of potential efficiency. He stresses that the entire beef cattle producing industry should strive for a higher quality product that can be sold at a lower price, and advises that: 1) You should use good bulls and high producing cows. 2) Eliminate inefficient breeding animals. 3) Control internal and external parasites to the best of your ability. 4) Feed your cattle to the best of your ability. 5) Do your share to help eliminate as much as possible the inefficiency in the beef cattle industry at the present time. This may strike a chord of familiarity in your mind, but we think that it is mighty sound advice! What's the Score on Potitions? WE REPORTED in last month's issue that Lee, Citrus, Duval, Hendry, Palm Beach, Sumter, Collier, Pasco, and Clay counties had submitted petitions to the Animal Industry Technical Committee requesting an area test and slaughter program to attain modified certified free brucellosis status. State Veterinarian C. L. Campbell reported to FCA President W. D. Roberts at presstime that no additional petitions have been received by AITC. However, area testing work was slated to begin in Lee, Citrus and Duval counties the week of May 23. He also said that the work in Sarasota County is over one-third completed and reported that USDA has assigned four more veterinarians to Florida, with three more to be sent here in mid-June, and five more to be assigned to the state after June to help with brucellosis work. Reported activity in several counties will no doubt result in additional petitions being submitted in the near future. Let's All Go to Cocoa Beach!

Harden Farm has a good pasture program, so Mr. Harden says his cattle need very little mineral suppleI Harden Farm, Sanford ment during the "good grass" months; "When they need it, they eat it, but if they don't need it, they don't eat it." He continues, "P.D.Q. is made for Florida-it's a good mineral, and we get good service at a good price."
