Consumer Meat Costs Same
Farmers know that
production costa are up on all
products such as beef and
pork. Consumers are certain
that meat takes a bigger bite
out of the income.
County Agent Glenn
Ellenberger, however,
quotes figures released by
Louis Moore, Penn State
University Livestock
Marketing Specialist, that
show the consumer bite was
greater 20 years ago than
today. In 1955,4.57 percent of
the disposable income went
for meat. In 1974-75 that
percentage has dropped to
152 00

4.03 percent. In addition to
this reversal, quality has
improved for meat sold.
Better cuts, less waste and
more tenderness is present
in the steak or chop of today.
Strawberry Rot Present
Growers of strawberries
must keep after the Botrylls
Fruit Rot during periods of
damp weather. Ripening
berries become a fungus
infected moss, notes Glenn
EUenberger, County Agent.
Fungicide sprays to prevent
the rot should have started
during the blossom period.
Continued coverage is
necessary during ripening
period. Benomyl (Benlate)
or Captan are the recom
mended materials. Direc
tions should be followed on
the container.

Hamilton Orchard, south of
Limeport where growing of

Ritter, Penn State
University Penologist will
