State Representative Scheetz’
(Lancaster) proposal to create a
mandatory .5 percent Hog
Checkoff with .3 percent going to
National Pork Producers Council
is an excellent means to insure the
future of the pork industry! But the
.2 percent to establish a Super
Fund to help pork producers
devestated by disease is not
First, it’s a cop-out by govern
ment to dump the economic burden
of any cataclysm (i.e. PRV, TB,
African Swine Fever, Packer
bankruptcy or Canadian hogs) on
pork producers and expect us to
solve these problems without help!
Government (Good Govern
ment) should accept some
responsibility to preserve the pork
industry and ante-up. Because the
.2 percent check-off for such a fund
would net approximately $150,000
to $200,000 depending on the price,
weight and number of head
This would never be enough to
cover the losses of 50 PRV cases
($4400.00 per case) - let alone
something as catastrophic as ASF.
Secondly, I am totally opposed to
a Board of Directors which would
administer the fund that includes
the Secretary of Agriculture,
Veterinarian from the Bureau of
Animal Industry and Packer. It
should be ALL pork producers if
we must solely pay the bill. Pork
producers are capable of ad
ministering such a fund especially
smce it’s their money.
I think the .2 percent Rep.
Scheetz has earmarked for the
disease Super Fund would be
better utilized entirely for ad
vertising because this would have
a positive effect on the entire Pa.
Pork Industry. Suppose the
$220,000 spent for advertising
would raise the live hog prices by
one cent per pound; this would net
Pa. pork producers $2,200,000, or a

10-fold rate of return. And be more
realistic and economically helpful
for the Pa. pork industry.

I’ve heard enough about the
farmers being blamed for a dead
Chesapeake Bay. There was more
farming here a hundred years ago
than there is now. And there were
factories dumping into the
streams, people used out houses,
streams had dams in them with
millers and saw mills and all the
Fish were very abundant in spite
of all that.
In Baltimore, canneries were on
the Bay dumping their effluent
right in the water and big schools
of fish (of very big fish) were very
It’s only in the last 40 years that
the Bay died. We farmers who
can’t fight back are the fall guys
and culprits being forced to take
the blame.
That’s all a big lie. The truth is
that the excrement of the nuclear
plants into the flowing rivers is and
has killed everything in the Bay.
Muddy waters and phosphates,
nitrates, etc. by the farmers did
not. Muddy waters and washoff
has occurred since Adam and Eve.
If one nuclear plant is
somewhere along a river it will kill
the whole ocean. The radioactive
excrement of a nuclear plant kills
and gives cancer to all water life
and impedes reproduction etc.
There is the real answer to a dead
The nukes must go. That in
cludes submarines, nuke ships and
all. The excrement from a nuclear
plant will kill for the next 10,000
years. That’s why we must clean

703 dairy commercials
National Dairy Promotion and
Research Board’s nationwide ad
campaign to increase consumption
of dairy products kicked off of
ficially on the evening of Sunday,
Sept. 9, when the first two national
network dairy commercials aired
during ABC’s ’’Hardcastle and
McCormick” and its “Sunday
Night Movie.”
These were the first of 703
National Dairy Board-sponsored
milk and cheese commercials due
to appear on the three networks
between September 9 and April 30,
the close of the campaign.
“Hardcastle and McCormick”
reached an estimated 13,500,000
homes; “Sunday Night Movie” ran
in 14,920,000 households.
An average of 26.5 National
Dairy Board commercials will
appear each week. Of the total
viewing audience, fluid milk ads
will reach 85 percent an average of
3.8 times; cheese promotion
commercials will reach 88 percent
up and clean out and get rid of all
nuclear plants. Not the farmers.
The nuclear industry, NKC, TMI
officials and all pro-nukers have
lied to us all with “bull feces” that
nuclear plants and power is so
They are, in fact, guilty before
truth and Almighty God of cruel
chronic murder. They have never
admitted to high radiation of just
the past few days which was 1.5
roetgens per hour. That was a
year’s dose in one and a half days.
Fifty roetgens is a maximum
year’s dose.
You can’t get a radiation
detector to see for yourself
because they have been cleverly
and crookedly banned by the White
House and the crooked cohorts.
I figured this would enlighten
you as to what the truth really is
and what kind of monkey show
they are putting on.

cheeses continuity ads will reach
90 percent an average of 6.7 times.
Of the 703 national network
commercials, at least 261 will
appear during prime-time hours
(8-11 p.m.). Three hundred forty
six will appear on daytime TV.
Ninety-six commercials will be
aired during children’s shows,
including a number of prime-time
For the sporting audience, fluid
milk commercials will run during
Games One and Three of the World
Series, and cheese ads during
Games Two and Four. Ads will
also air during next year’s
Superbowl XIX.
Not included in the network
schedule are butter ads, for which
time is still being bought. Butter
ads, in addition, will be dropped
into selected regional markets
rather than appear nationwide.
The Board’s calcium-related ads
will be carried in the print media,
not on television.
The National Dairy Board
commercials are supplemented
and complemented by ads spon
sored by the state and regional
promotional bodies, whose ads
appear in their own markets only.
The national advertising cam
paign was designed by the Dairy
Promotion Federation
Association, which won a $50.6
million contract from the National
New Holland, PA
Dairy Board to carry out the
promotion work. The Federation is
composed of the United Dairy
Industry Association and the
promotional bodies of California,
Oregon, Washington and Neveda
(known as COW).

suggested to have a separate room
or building for pesticide storage.
Wettable powders are easy to
store; however, emulsions and
liquids may be harmed by freezing
weather. Producers are urged to
follow the label and instructions in
this respect. It may be necessary
to keep some of them in a heated
building. Be sure they are not near
feed supplies because accidents
can happen. Pesticides kept in a
room or building under a lock is a
good way to prevent costly
mistakes and tragedies.
Fan louvers on poultry and swine
operations should close tightly
when a fan is not operating. If they
don’t air will enter through the
open louver and be discharged by
the nearest running fan, giving you
no ventilation value.
When the fan is on, louvers must
be fully open; otherwise, they will
restrict the flow of air from the
building. Tests have shown that a
little dust on fan louvers can
restrict air flow by more than 1,000
c.f.m. per fan. A restricted fan
operates longer and bears a
heavier load using more elec
tricity, which costs money.
In many cases, you can repair
louvers that are sticking open or
shut just by cleaning them and
applying oil or rust solvent to the
