These millions of American farm and ranch peo- ple are advancing along the road to final victory, shoulder to shoulder with the men and women in the armed services. No "E" flags fly from the ridge-poles of their barns . . . no medals are pinned on their shirt fronts. Their reward is the inner satisfaction of a job well done. Look at their record of victories! In 1944, food production again reached an all-time high--158,- 950,000 meat animals were slaughtered; 3,101,- 000,000 bushels of corn, 1,115,000,000 bushels of wheat; dairy products, poultry, eggs, etc., in rec- ord or near-record quantities! And because they produced all this food, the meat packing industry was also able to process and distribute a record volume of meats--25 billion pounds. Each year since the war started, what seemed to be "impossible" goals' were set for food pro- duction. Each year these objectives have been reached and surpassed in spite of shortages of help and machinery. Farmers and ranchers have produced the staggering tonnages of foods re- quired to feed millions in the armed services and the rest of the nation at home. America Is proud of the victories won by this "Army That's Never Been Beaten." $5.00 FOR YOUR GOOD IDEAS! Practical ideas which you have found helpful around your farm or ranch are worth money.

They also expect an increase in the number of cattle fed for slaughter. From 1946 to 1949, they expect a gradual decline in slaughtering, with yearly slaughter around 28 to 29 million head. HOGS: Their estimate of total 1945 hog slaughter is about 79 million, against approximately 100 million in '44. They expect hog production in 1946 to be close to 1945 levels, depending on the feed situation. -A mn is ~c.s,~ ~ his r 1 SHEEP, LAMBS: Slaughter in '45 will ]ike]y be the earn/ngs catch up w/th h/e yearn- [ "What [ smallest since 1929, due to recent selling of breeding ingL | do you [ stock.
