00 NOT BUY VEAL
00 NOT BUY VEAL SWANSEA BUTCHER'S WARNING TO THE PUBLIC. ACTION IN COWEI According to authorities with whom a representative has discussed the question to-day, a very serious situation in regard to the national meat supply will soon be evident unless the Board of Agriculture —or the public-takes steps to prevent the abnormal slaughter of calves now proceeding. There is reason to believe that the Board is making thorough in- vestigation on the subject. The first view being that farmers are getting rid of young stock in conse- quence, to no small extent, of a fear that that prices of feeding stuffs will go still higher. A Swansea miller was asked whether there was ground for this idea. He could find no justification for it, lie said, adding that in his opinion the outlook for food- stuffs was such. and the price of beef so high, that it would pay even the farmer to rear his young stock instead of gelling. Why Farmers are Selling, Xo. it is not because farmers think foodstuffs will go higher that' they are eelling calves for slaughter," said a veil- known Swansea butcher. They are sell- ing because they can get big prices for them. And you can take it from me they are getting huge prices—as much as they would usually get for animals six month" older—because calves have risen in eym- pathy with every thing else. But we are killing stuff that ought not to be sold. It is a sin to kill theee calves, because they will he a lot better later. Besides, there will be a worsa shortage than ever later on unless some- thing is done; it is not felt at first, but in a couple of years1 time the lots of calves iit this rate will mean a serious shortage. Swansea butchers have realised tiiig. and at a meeting this week decided to ask the Board of Agriculture to prevent the killing of calves except during the veal season. If the Board, or the Government, will not take steps it rests with the pub- lie; they ought not to buy veal. The irony of it is that, of course, the calves that make the best veal now would, if kept, make the best beef later; yet, in the western agricultural counties, hun- dreds of calves are being sold, and I don't suppose a tenth of them are being used for stock. The Right Thing in Gower. In Gower the majority of the farmera are doing the right thing; young stock has been sold,, but the majority are now doing their best to make up for this by keeping what they have and rearing them. Gower, however, comes under a different category; it is not a dairy, but more of a feeding country. That is where it differs from the western coun- tries in which hundreds of calves are being sold." A gentleman who knows Gower agri- culture well agi-e,-(t ihat while in some parts of Wales calves were being killed in abnormal numbers, this was not true of Gower. Influence had been exercised in the riglit direction, and they were not now killing calves to any extent. As a matter of fact, they were buying as many as they could to rear. The beef Season in Gower was practically finished, and future sales would be of sheep. There was no alteration in the method of farm- ing.
