The farmer, Herb Dykstra, feeds 700 head a year on wilted, high-moisture alfalfa ensilage. If his figures are correct, Dykstra's cost is only one-third to one-half of the current cost of gain in the huge carte feedlots of Kansas and the High Plains, considered to be the most efficient beef factories In the world. "When I started this 13 years ago the cattle buyer (from Iowa Beef) looked into my feed bunks to see what I was an effort to stem production costs and consumer prices. The secret of Dyksfra's the animal in combination with minerals and vitamins is believed to help convert success is in the use of a preservative when stockpiling to prevent spoilage of the caflle feed. There are several currently being used, featuring either chemical or enzyme action. The connection between what is happening here in northwest Iowa and elsewhere and the family home anyplace In the nation may be tenuous and hard to trace. But it is therHnd real. If cattle, hogs, sheep and poultry can be raised suc- cessfully on a large scale without more costly forms of protein, as Dykstra's case history might Indicate, costs of production would be iowered enormously. The food-chain sequence being what It Is, some of those benefits ultimately will reach the consumer when he visits the supermarket. To be feeding," Dykstra chuckled. "When he saw the ration, he cellulose, such as in corn stalks, fo sugar and help the animal digest more efficiently. Ehlerf maintained that if U.S. stock producers used correct management they could produce more beef and other meat for less money by avoiding crop waste. A Missouri cattleman on the tour, Harry Hayes of Chiilicothe, agreed. He was on the tour fo learn if "We can finish cattle on roughage in our operation" Hayes and his father, Byron Hayes, run between 60,000 and 70,000 cattle, including a 700.head cow herd, on Missouri and Kansas pastures. They have mostly feeder steers on Bluestem pastures this sum- mer, but also have a small Missouri feedlof where they fatten steers for area packers. completely honest, however, now only Dyksfra is reaping the reward of his experiment, still considered far-out by most livestock producers. And If chemical and enzyme preservatives come into wide use, there will be tremendous savings In the use of natural and propane gas now being used during harvest every autumn to dry grain to a point tt can be stored without damage and spoilage caused by excessive moisture. The enzyme way of preserving grain and ensilage is widely used among the Dutch and German farmel's here because the process was discovered in this area by a biochemist near the end of World War II. The discovery, however, was accidental because the scientist really was trying to find a way to produce more grain alcohol from a bushel of corn. wouldn't even bid. I finally persuaded him to buy on a grade-and-yield basis, (the seller Is not paid until the animal is slaughtered and the carcass evaluated) so the company could not get hurt. "Now Iowa Beef buys 'em over the telephone sight un. seen." Every one of the group of Iowans unspecfing Dykstra's farm here in northwest Iowa was, like their host, a farmer- feeder, fattening for slaughter between 150 and 1,000 head of cattle a year. "l've seen it, but I don't believe it," one of the visitors commented. "And I ain't gonna --yet. Dykstra, who farms only 300 acres, also raises about 2,000 feeder pigs annually. He buys no feed at all for his cattle though he does purchase some feed and supplements for the feeder pigs and his sow herd. Basically, most of Dykstra's finishing ration comes from a 60-acre field of alfalfa cut three or four times a year. When his alfalfa is ready, he cuts it in the morning, permits it to wilt for several hours, picks it up and Hayes said costs always are Important to cattlemen. But the problem is critical now because Phase 3 holds the freeze line on the beef Industry, "The sloppy operator Is done for," Hayes said flatly. "This (Phase 4) is going to finish him." Iowa farmers like Dykstra and some of his neighbors remain convinced they have found the answer. Dykstra says he buys feeder cattle at about 400 pounds and finishes them toweights of 1,100 to 1,200 pounds without the use of a single pound of purchased protein, such as soybean and cottonseed meal. The only thing he Is ready to concede is that it takes him longer to bring cattle to the same weight and degree of finish. He may keep a steer on wilted alfalfa for as long as nine or 10 months, whereas the big Kansas feedlots will do the lob in five. But as a bonus Dykstra finds that his steers grade at least choice, with about one-third grading prime, the industry's highest degree of finish. Right now he has cut back a little because Iowa Beef at nearby Dakota City, Neb., is closed by a combination of labor troubles and the cost. price squeeze In which all packers currently find themselves.

"But that animal doesn't need all that corn," the young Iowan maintained. "What some of us are trying to do Is make a hog out of a steer."
