Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta April 5, 1971 LfTHBRIDGS HERA1D 11 Study based on terminnl_ inland grain elevators not shipping answer CALGARY (CP) Use of in- land grain terminals does not appear to be a practical solu- tion to shipping problems fac- ing Western Canadian farmers, says the Alberta Wheat Pool. The pool's conclusion is based on a study of the Lethbridge terminal but "it is assumed findings would apply to those at Edmonton and Calgary as well." Such terminals would clean grain and prepare it for direct loading onto ships rather than putting it through coastal ter- minals. EXTRA COST The study calculated that on a volume of 200 cars of 1 c. w. a week out of Ixjlhlirldgo the additional cost per bushel would be between 14.5 and 13.8 cents. Tlie pool said the extra cost can "be justified financially from the producers standpoint only if it avoids heavy ship de- murrage penalty." Grain could be shipped di- rectly to inland terminals from farms, the report said, but "it is not practical to depend on such a system during the Urns of spring road bans or during tlie seeding season." To ensure delivery under such a system, a fleet of char- tered or purchased trucks would be needed at a cost of ahout a week. Grain could also be brough from country elevators by rai hut a stop-over charge of PROCLAMATION WHEREAS, Cancer can strike anyone a> any age It can affecr children as well as adulis, but it strikes with increasing frequency with advancing age.

The railway is currently tak- ng 15G cars of 1 c. w. wheat a week from the area a Leth- >ridge terminal would serve and if Ihis was maintained along with Ihe terminal system 'arm stocks would be sufiiclenl to last 10 to 11 weeks. CUT SEKVICE But it was possible railway! would cut service to country elevators if the terminal system was employed because there would he insufficient rolling stock lo handle botii. Farmers would also have to pay additional elevation charges because ot the extra terminal, the report said, and they would lose money on screening from cleaned grain because ot difference in value between the prairies and the west coast.
