Transcription"The cattle industry under conditions fixed by the grain combine and meat trust is continually menaced with ruin. Congressman Baer here pictures a situation that was acute during the war and which still menaces our meat and dairy production. Not enough feed on the farms to keep young cattle, bought feed too high to be profitable to the farmer, and the meat trust taking advantage of it by hustling the yearlings off to market." - Caption text with published image.
