The 1971 Alberta Flying Farmers' Convention will be held in Edmonton. South Flying Farmers Put Olson On Griddle H. A, (Bud) Olson, federal minister of agriculture, was on the griddle Saturday as a paael of agricultural specialists at- tending the 16th annual Flying Fanners convention in Leth- bridge, showered the Ottawa's agricultural with sharp criticisms. Varno Westersund, of Blactie, one of the four panelists call- ed the federal wheat acreage reduction plan, "operation lift, the biggest joke in the west "Toe farmers will never see more than 10 per cent of the promised be said "The Canadian wheat board stood by as sales dropped to half 'of what they were pre- viously, but the government didn't whip the wheat board, hot they are hitting the farm- er. The whole scheme was de- signed just to take the beat off the government" Mr. Westersund are farms said there in western Canada tanning some 130 mil- Boa.acres, but of these farms produce per cent of the fatal western Canadian ex- ports. "How can the other 000 farmers hope to make sub- stantial progress on the remain- ng SO yet cent." Mr. Olson disregarded ac- cusations made by two mem- bers a! the audience that the government two year's ago urged to grow all the wheat could: He said, "People involved in agrkuUure muse realize that this country is changing from a balanced economy of supply and demand to one of gross over production and with ever' in- creasing technology, it may get worse. I agree that changes are necessary in order to stabuue Canada's price the first lesson is to agree to agree." Mr. Dion added federal leg- islation on marketing t intro- duced to the House of Com- mons last week was not intend- ed to be a cure-all formula, but rather at a ground structure for later improvements.

"The secret to success, Mr Ross said, "is to be taxed productivity alone." He added that with curren surpluses of grain nt western Canada, a false assumption that cattle can be 'fuasbed cheaply has evolved. Actually such cir- cumstances work against each other, he said, when the' cheap grain prices are offset by in- creased feeder cattle prices. Government subsidies on production are structure but the first lesson ne must learn MARCH WEATHER beef in- creases whkh are certainly not needed.' "Supply and- demand regu- lates the pikes oa every com- modity we have and as far as I am concerned now, cattle feeding is abort as risky as betting n the bones at the aces."
