Eichhorst Corn May Be The Cheapest Feed This Year Attorney The farmer who pastures his cattle during spring and summerqlth offices in to cut the cost of grain should take another look at his feeding plan B E L F ! E L D this year. In 1960, it may pay to really push corn, mile or other SATURDAYS grains to cattle. With a gradual decline in prices likely during the MONDAYS - WEDNESDAYS year, it will pay to rush feeders for the early market, The savings -- and -- from cheap grains on roughage or pasture could be wiped out by lower markets next fall, according to a Massey-Ferguson research re][~ort on the cattle situation. Bill Zmolek, Iowa State animal husbandryman observes, "Cheap- ening the ration with roughage is less important with corn around $1 per bushel. Considering the rate of gain, the finish and the savings ~ time, corn probably is one of the lowest cost feeds you can use. we certainly are discouraging, long-range programs that involve a heavy roughage use. ."F,t~d'ts relatively cheap while cattle price~ stir m'e quit~~ high,' says Lot Taylor, Kansas animal husbandryman. He advises, "'A farmer whose normal program is to get cheap winter gains on roughage, then go to grass for a full season, should consider push- ing cattle. He could winter on a higher level and put them direct- ly into the feed lot at the end of winter." G. R Carlisle, Illinois animal husbandryman says, :'Low grade roughage such as corn cobs may have a place during times of high corn prices or during a shortage of other rations But with ~m abundance of grain, such as we have now, Carlisle believes, "Cheap roughages better be used as bedding. Best way to fatten cattle on cobs is to let them sleep on them." Looking at USDA predictions, it seems probable that 1960 will see a big inerease in marketings of both fed cattle and non-fed cattle. These increased marketings will put pressure on the markets. Livestock forecasters are predicting some strength in fat cattle markets this spring. Prices should hold up during most of the sum- mer, but by fall they are expected to drop 10% to 15% below the epring high. Summing it UP---this looks like the year to put your sights on earl~markets, the report concludes. TUESDAYS .

MARKET ORIENTED One method of orientating busi- nesses is through markets. These businesses or industries usually es- tablish their plants in the immediate vicinity of the markets fl ,ey serve, thereby reducing the cost of trans- porting the finished products. Among these are the consumer industries (dairy products, meat, bakery), the farm input industries (fertilizer, insec- ticides, agricultural machinery) and those serving a highly specialized in. dustry (oil, tro chemical). There are three ways in which development can occur. 1. Establish plant with local talents and capital. 2. IndUce plant (or branch plant) to move to your area. 3. Pr0, ide local capital and import management-know how, IMPORTANT GUY in your town is your local newspaper editor--either weekly or daily. Through his careful stewardship of a free press, he protects all of t he other freedoms you enjoy. When he takes a couple of days off this month to go to the State Press Convention, help him get his paper out early by getting in your news and ads early. CUSTER RIDES AGAIN: In North Dakota a non-profit corporation has been formed, called the Custer-Fort Lincoln Foundation. Goal: To raise -- eventually -- 1 million dollars to restore old Fort Lincoln on thebanks of the Missouri, make it a prime tourist attraction. I r~edi- ate desire is to restore ,the Custer home from which~the General took off for' the Battle of the Little Big Horn. HARD AND COLD FA4~T Since 1940 South Dakota has usually ranked among the top three states in the Union in the production of granite! But gold and silver are still top producers, money-wise, and contributed about 50% of South Dakota's total $40 million mineral pro- duction in 1958. TIRED OF TV? If you are, perhaps it's be- cause North and South Dakota have more television stations, per capita, than any other states in the union-- excepting Alaska and Hawaii.
