In view of the fact that grade A Hereford steers sold on Friday for as low as 38 cents a pound, and that there are many signs of discrepancies which indicate that the beef subsidy is not getting back to the producers, would the minister withdraw this program and let cattle trade in a free, open market until he comes up with a better system?
