Cattle Committee Vetoes
AAA Plan for Feed Grain
Cattlemen of the United States
have apparently turned thumbs
down on a tentative proposal to lay
a genral livestock processing tax
to raise money for financing acre
age control of feed graina Word
received by the extension service at
Oregon State college indicates that
the national cattle committee of
25 voted 12 to 10 against adoption
of the proposal.
What the next step will be is not
known as details of the conference
in Washington D. C. have not been
received, but judging by past exper
ience, the AAA will not attempt to
put any program into effect until
the producers most vitally affected
are in substantial agreement
The theory on which the plan was
based is that by controlling feed
grains you automatically control
livestock production. Therefore if
all feed grains were lumped togeth
er under one acreage control pro
gram, financed by a processing tax
from all livestock, then both bran
ches of this vast enterprise would
be kept under control In such way
as to maintain reasonable market
Principal opposition to the plan
Is believed to have come from the
far western range livestock men
who felt that their industry would
be placed in the position of being
taxed for the benefit largely of the
corn belt grain producer. Those
favorable to the plan urged that
range livestock men would benefit
along with others through the na
tional effect on market pricea
The committee conference in
Washington, which Included Her
man Oliver of John Day, was called
specifically to pass upon proposed
amendments to the AAA which
would have authorized such a pro
gram. Under the present law a
processing tax cannot be laid on
any commodity unless benefit pay
ments are made on the same com
modity. Meanwhile the Washington offi
cials have announced emphatically
that, contrary to some statements
and rumors, the AAA has no inten
tion of abandoning any adjustment
program now in effect While some
prices have reached the pre-war
level, the average price of 14 basic
commodities is still substantially
below parity. That is, a given quan
tity will not yet sell for enough to
buy as much non-agricultural goods
as it would before the war.
