Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
Monday, April J, 1971 THI UIUBRIDGI HERAID 3 Marketing board chairman adniUs facing tough job PAUL DABEY KDMONTON (CP) Tmil B.'ibey crta. BuL Mr. Babey, wlip started arming al H when liis father died, does not intend to give up iLs operation. "I don't think I will ever com- pletely give up farming." Involved in farm organiza- ions since he started farming, Mr. Babey made it lo the board o! the Farmers Union of Alberta n 1958 and lo its presidency in 953. FORMED U7VIFAIIM He became the first president o( Uniform in March, 1971, and resigned last November take the conservation post. He led the move to create Unifarm by merger of the farmers' union with the Alberta Federation of and in doing so led the fight against merger of his union with the militant National Farmers' Union. Formatjon of Unifarm, now representing o[ Alberta's 50.090 farmers on a direct mem- bership basis, was an accom- plishment unprecedented in Ca- nadian agricullure, bringing to- gether individual farmers and special-interest groups. He is oplLnislic the new coun- cil will be supported by NFU President Hoy Atkinson and his organization. "Our doors will he open lo all tho organizations because we'll need a combined effort anc, ideas from all the groups In do Ihc best job for the industry." Mr. Babey said that for many years agriculture concentrated on production and "did a dam good job." "At the same time, we per- haps did not pul as much em- phasis on tho marketing side and over the years I've al ways tried to get producers in- volved in the marketing proc- ess." BIJiVEFITS EXPECTED While the new council is gouif to cost chairman's salary is estimated at about benefits lo Ihe pro- ducers involved would "far out weigh the costs." "When commodity agencies arc set up I think there will be a deduction on the product, hui it will depend on the kind ol plan and recommendation tha the producers themselves sub- mit." lie emphasized the councL has "no intention" of imposing marketing boards on any group of producers against their fear expressed vocif. eroiisly by livestock producers during Lhe 7.1 montlw; it look to ;el Iho marketing act through Parliament. Even if we Iricd, it wouldn't work because it has lo come 'rom the majority of producers aflcr they have considered all :heir problems. Then the council can move into its role of assisl- iig Ihem arid facilitating a mar- feeling board." Designed to end the so-called 'chicken-and-egg tho act provides for a system of na- tional marketing boards to facil- itate orderly marketing. Various provinces have formed their own marketing boards and have been accused o f restricting interprovincial trade, with Quebec insisting that all eggs marketed in its ju- risdiction be moved Ihrough a provincial board. Othc- inccs retaliated, Imposing Im- port resb-iclions on Quebec broiler chickens. Tho Quelxx action resulted after Manitoba egg priducers shipped Iheir surplus into the eastern province at prices lower than Quebec producers could match. "This Is one of the problems that the national council will be confronted Mr. Babey said when asked whether mar- ket sharing and the imposition of production quotas could hurt producers in any one area. "1 think you will have produc- ers looking a I their problem from tho different regions in terms of Ihe total national good. I've always liari a lot of faitii in producers being able to work out the particulars when the objective is an improvemen' for the industry in total." Stolen egg relumed EDMONTON (CP) Even the meanest of thieves can be soft hearted. In an apologetic note, lliieves have told police where to lo- cale a three foot long choco- late Easter egg stolen from a shopping centre last week. The ncte said that culprits realized they were "the mean- est Ihieves in town." The egg, weighing 60 pounds, has been returned- Ro-Neet: best for weed control in sugar beets 1 The best way to get sure control of most grass and broadleaf weeds is to mix Ro-Neet herbicide in the soil before planting.
