It was brought to our by Fritz Rehbein of Publisher Billings, Mont. -- Everyone the United States un- a profit or a loss. business people and .rehers understand return on but the livestock the rancher, and the the packer and the must look at their in- on a per day basis. each and every The dec)slang you make day surely can affect you but you make that and that decision in given day. Decision time is here for the the doubt, for four days of ownership, his gross return per day is $35.62. Now, if you want to put a calculator or a pencil to the return on investment per day, can you please notice the situation that the rancher is in, and yes, the feeder too. This retailer is making 604.7 per cent more gross return per head per day of ownership than the packer. He's making 5,162.3 per cent more gross return per head per day of ownership than the feeder and this retailer is making 7420.8 per cent more gross return per head per day of ownership than the rancher. Profits are made by the amount of time it takes to turn your money over. You in the ranching business are owning this 700 pound steer for an average of 18 months compared to this chain store retailer who but all of these people turn their product over so much more quickly than the rancher. The rancher with 540 days or 18 months, tied up in this steer on a return of 48 cent gross return per head per day of ownership has expenses too. A pickup that used to cost $2,800 now costs $4,800. A good hired man that used to cost $250 now costs $450 or $500 per month. Land that used to cost $8.00 an acre now costs $40.00 an acre. Taxes that used to cost $300 a year now are $3,000 a year. Cows that used to cost $25 a year to run now are $110 per head per year to run. It's time that the livestock industry compared their gross return per head per day of ownership with their friendly enemies who receive and use their stock to and through the consumer.

Mitich, weed specialist for the NDJ Cooperative Exten- sion Service. "Weed science is a crucial part c our production capa- city for food and fiber," notes Dr. Klingman, "but it is also a major contributor to the ad- vanced social and cultural structures o( the 20th cen- tury. Our environment has been dramatically improved when crop protection corn- been correctly used." If our improved agricultur- al technology developed in the past 25 years were deliberate- ly destrvored, we would need 300 million acres (ff new crop land -- equal to the area (ff eight mid-Western states -- simply to feed our present population, reports Dr. Kling- man. "Today there is a trend to discuss developments such as herbicides in terms ot ex- tremes, with much emphasis on potential hazards. The sci- entist, however, must push ahead to evaluate new find- ings on a sound basis; he must work to get this knowledge to the public so that judgements can be made on an enlighten- ed basis. Fears and super- stitions and strident publicity fits and risks related to weed science," Dr. KHngman notes. Your World Is As Big As You Make It. Today's Army wants to join you. SSG Edwd P.
