Abstract:  This newsletter is a report of a seminar dealing with the crises created in the livestock industry in Canada and their relation to marketing, nutrition and the world food situation. Don Mitchell, one of the resource people on the seminar, sums up the situation by observing that the processing and distribution sectors of the food industry are shaped largely by the desire to earn profits from their activity. He points out that in Canada we have the capacity to become self-sufficient in beef production instead of being dependent on beef imports from Australia. Other resource persons at the said seminar note that the centralization and monopolization process under way on the Canadian prairies is destroying the social and economic structure of our rural areas. They suggest the nationalization of land and the promotion of a policy of self-reliance in food production.
