DeVon Woodland, president of the National Farmers Or- ganization, announced today that NFO negotiators will in- stitute a $72 a hundred floor price nationwide on dressed ket. "We are urging all cow beef producers to market their cows through NFO and help put a stop to this unjustified price drop," be said. "Further attempts by beef retailers and the fast food industry to drive prices down would result in our recommending a total shutoff of slaughter cows moving through the dressed beef system." THE NFO president blamed the sudden price drop primar- ily on pressure applied to meat packers by the fast food industry. At least one national chain, he said, is now paying less than 25 cents for the beef in its hamburgers. He said a large volume of imported beef also is being used to cheapen dressed beef prices. "We've got a hamburger price war going on between the big fast food chains," he said, "and cow beef producers across the country are ending up paying for it." Woodland said it's time for dairymen, ranchers, and other cow beef producers to join Memberships Available on a Yearly, 6-Month, Monthly, and Daily Basis Look, Feel, and Be Healthier!

This sudden drop, he said, is cos- ting cow beef producers near- ly $900,000 each day for the slaughter cows going to mar- together and resist continuing attempts to drive cow beef prices down at their expense. "We recognize $72 is too low for cow beef, expecially in view of the huge profits beef retailers and fast food chains America.

"By flooring the market at that price Monday, and controlling the inventory from the live cattle end from then on, we can move the price of cow beef up a step at a time to a level that returns a profit."
