FARMERS AND SLAUGHTER- I HOUSES. BRECON F. U. DISCUSSION. I "TENDENCY TO 'KICK OYER THE TRACES" I Brecon branch of the Brecon and Radnor Farmers' Union, met at the Wellington Hotel, Brecon, on Tuesday. In the absence of the chairman (Mr Jenkins, Cefnparc), Mr J. E. Morris, the vice-chair- man, presided. Before proceeding with the business, the chairman said they were very sotry that Mr Jenkins, their chairman, was unable to he present owing to a serious illness. Mr Jenkins had had great misfoitune re- cently in the loss of his wife and in his illness. He was sure they all deeply sympathised with him. He proposed they send a vote of sympathy to him in his breavement and illness. Mr W. D. Smith seconded, and it was agreed to. Butter Prices. I Arising out-of the minutes, Mr W. D. Smith re- ported that the deputation had seen the Food Com- mittee as instructed. They were given a very patient hearing, but it was quite evident at the outset that it was intended to make no concession. As they were aware, the Committees had now agreed to a uniform price. Agricultural Wages. I A communication was read from the Agricultural Wages Board, stating that they were now engaged in establishing local Wages Committees all over the district. In some districts employers had threatened their men with dismissal for acting on this committee. The Secretary said the Wages Board only wanted to know whether farmers in this district would interfere with their employees being a member of the Wages Committee. Mr W. D. Smith said he thought every farmer in this district would know better than to challenge the right of his man to discuss the question of wages. As far as the farmers of Breeonshire were concered he was sure no objection would be made. Other members spoke supporting this view, and it was decided that no obstacii should be placed in the j employees way. I Suggested Farmers' Slaughter Houses. I A letter was read from the Agricultural Organisation Society with reference to the proposed scheme for farmers' slaughter-houses. Mr W. D. Smith said the dead weight system of selling animals was the only fair way of dealing with the situation. Mr Rees Williams thought the present scheme was rotten," and the only thing to alleviate the difficulty was to have a farmers slaughter-house. It was high time something was done. Mr W. J. Price (a grading auctioneer) avid it would not be Jpracticable to run such a slaugh f-h.,i?,, as Government officials would be appointed fto deal with the matter. They were up against a lot of difficulties. Mr W. D. Smith saw no reason why the scheme of a farmers' slaughter-house should not remain in opera- tion after the war. Mr W. J. Price said there was a tendency among the farmers to kick over the traces when the Government began to control anything of theirs. 'Vhy should the farmers expect to be free when every other industry was controlled The Chairman We are uuder a great disadvantage as farmers. Mr Rees Williams said all they wanted was fair play. No one, he asserted, could guess the weight of a breeding ram. Mr W. D. Smith said if an article were handled un- fairly it tended to hamper its production. Mr David Williams remarked that the Town Council should erect a machine in the Market to weigh about 20 lambs at once. Then they could be graded and sold by the live weight. Several propositions were made, but no action was taken.
