Bruises, crippling and death losses cost American stockmen 12 million dollars each year—equivalent to the value of a single file of market hogs stretching all the way from St. Louis to Chicago. And the producers do pay those losses; directly through deaths and excessive shrink caused by bad loading and shipping practices . . . indirectly through bruises (we find them in over 20% of all livestock slaughtered!) which reduce the value of otherwise good carcasses.

March, 1946 USD A Looks To The Future In Agricultural Research Agricultural research "geared to the needs of the present" but projected to provide the answers that are certain to be needed by American farmers in the future is what the U.

Department of Agriculture, admits he's no "crystal gazer" but thinks that high tobacco prices will prevail for some time even though production is increased. At the largest of the regional' Farm Bureau meetings, in Farmville, Mr. Gage told approximately 100 farm leaders, most of them tobacco growers, that "with a moderate increase in production, farmers still will get a remunerative price for their tobacco." Big Demand There is a great demand for firecured tobacco at present, he said, FEED SHORTAGE CRITICAL! LaST AUGUST Southern States Cooperative advised patrons in respect to the outlook on feed supplies as follows: "In the light of the overall supply and demand situation, we should squarely face the fact that during the next fifteen months, we shall be confronted with recurring—perhaps almost continuou...
