BE TESTED NATIONWIDE a pilot study to beef carcass In- to producers was by the U. S. of Agriculture. collection of the carcass will be carried out by the Division of USDA's Service to the requests of rous livestock the Schedules Beef Improvement Federation (BIF). The service is to be made available on a self- supporting basis to producers nationwide through livestock and trade organizations and State departments of agriculture. It has been operated on a 4-H State mid- west area as a pilot study under the working title of the "Beef Carcass Data Service." It will necessarily be somewhat limited during the test period, while the procedures for collecting and returning data to producers are being fully evaluated. The service will work like this: The local association cooperating with the USDA on the program makes official Beef Carcass Data eartags available to producers for 50 cents each. When the tagged animal is slaughtered in plants serviced by USDA graders, the grader evaluates the quality and yield grade factors from these carcasses on an official Beef Carcass Data form. The form is forwarded to the issuing association, which, in turn, gets it back to the tag purchaser. A fee of $1.50 is charged for the completed form. Eartags sometimes get lost, so that a carcass data form is not necessarily returned for every eartag issued. BIF and USDA officials point out that the service will provide Thursday a unique Richland County NFO meet Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. at  Sidney National Bank ospitality Room.

They stress that the program has great potential for assisting purebred breeders and commercial cattlemen alike in (1) establishing the genetic potential of their cattle, (2) selecting superior breeding stock and (3) planning their cattle merchandising and sales programs through a sound performance reputation. Since eartags will be available only through cooperating organizations, both BIF and USDA are en- couraging industry organizations and associations to participate so that producers across the nation will have access to the program. The success of this beef im- provement tool will depend upon the cooperation of various involved segments of the beef industry, including producers, feeders and packers, to assure that the tags remain wire the carcasses until data can be collected. Industry organizations, associations, or State depart- ments of agriculture interested in cooperating in this program should contact the Beef Im- provement Federation, College of Agriculture, University of Nebraska, Marvel Baker Hall, I,incoln, Neb., 68503, or the I, ivestock Division, Agricultural Marketing Ser- vice, U.

Hay truckers have scattered it along the roads and highways from cheat grass infested areas. Custom combining, swathing and custom baling have brought it in and are spreading it from one farm to another. Unless every effort is put forth by the farmers and ranchers, and even those owning a city lot, to rid this area of cheat grass, then in a few more years it will have choked out the native grass on our farms and ranches, which will mean a loss to everyone. Most weeds, as well as cheat grass, can he destroyed in some Bieber Rites Held Funeral services for Byron Bieber, 15, of Sidney were held at 2 p.m. Aug. 18, 1972, at the Church of the Nazarene in Sidney.

Fulkerson Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. way if enough effort is put forth to do so by good farming practices and by the use of chemicals, but when cheat grass once takes over our dryland grazing area, which cannot be farmed, in one way it will then be a question of can it be controlled in any way. If one would try to spray the cheat grass here he would destroy the native grass as well leaving the area bare without any grass. We must do something about it. Cheat grass greens up early in the spring and for a short length of time is relished by livestock, but it heads out early and by June it is ripe and then worthless for grazing. Cattle, sheep and horses will avoid eating it unless forced to do so. B- Save! Ask about UBC "Budget-saver" garages.

The adjustable wagon drawbar is attached directly behind the tongue so that pull is direct from the tractor. This prevents strain on the frame members. The entire blower housing is mounted on a heavy post hinge. By loosening one wing bolt, the housing can be swung 90 for easy access to the interior of the blower cutter cylinder and recutter screens. ] iiiii ii i ii ii i iiiiiiiiiiii Incredible? Yes! A pull-type forage harvester efficient enough to put out 80 tons (timed run) of properly cut forage per hour with a 150 hp tractor up front! There's a good reason. The 2000 - I50 has the same feed rolls, cylinder, blower and uses the same headers (except for direct - cut and grain) as the self-propelled, 100 ton per hour Model 4000. These components give the same teamwork and efficiency in the 2000 - 150 as they do in the 4000. They are all carried and supported by a heavy box beam frame that has the brawn to bold them in perfect alignment even under the severe strain of high horsepower and tough crops.
