REALTY LTD. 328-2356 NATIONAL REAL ESTATE SERVICE Saskatchewan livestock may rival grain WINNIPEG (CP) Saskatchewan is attempting to develop a livestock industry that will rival its internationally recognized capability to produce grain. A. J. Webster said. Mr. Webster, Saskatchewan's assistant deputy agriculture minister, told the annual meeting of the Manitoba Institute of Agrologists "this thrust represents the greatest challenge ever faced by professional agrologists in Saskatchewan." He said the Saskatchewan government now recognizes the future of the province depends on agriculture and the "future of agriculture depends largely on the development of the livestock industry." New programs challenge the long-standing and commonly-held" ideas that farmers grow bigger by adding more acres, "by buying out their neighbors." "This thinking must be changed to an approach that says 'to increase income requires more output per acre, in other words, more livestock.' to s Recovering Great blue heron, held by conservation officer Dan Dwyer, is recovering from emergency surgery on its bill, badly torn in an accident. The bird, near death from starvation, was stitched up and force fed back to recovery. Mr. Webster said the key to long-term success in producing, processing and marketing increased numbers of livestock lies in the ability to guarantee continuity of supply and the key to such continuity is a stable cost- returns relationship. "Farmers must be encouraged to attain a level of livestock production that will guarantee continuity of supply based on stability of he said. "It we can attain this, we arc well on our way toward achieving our second objective which is to process more livestock products before they leave Saskatchewan." The challenge facing agrologists ranges from recruiting and training required numbers of people to meet the needs of farmers, to developing professionals capable of designing new production systems and marketing programs which will serve to achieve the objective of greater stability for the inaustry, he said. Farms can produce more food items By STEVE DUBETZ Soil Scientist The recent increase in prices for farm products is evidence of the current world shortage of food. Land that is suitable for agriculture is limited and very year some of it is taken up for urban development. The cost of producing food is increasing and farmers are laced with higher energy costs. In spite oi these events, the challenge to grow yet more food can be met by farmers if .they use all their resources as ctlcctivcly as possible. The production of most crops on irrigated land could be increased, by as much as 50 per cent in some cases, if farmers used the latest knowledge that is available. The average yield of potatoes, for example, is about 13 tons per acre, and that of sugar beets is about 16 tons per acre. Results from the Lethbridge Research Station, and the yields ol some of the better growers, have shown that for these two crops 22 tons per acre are possible. Similarly, barley yields can be increased from 80 bushels per acre to more .than 100. and alfalfa yields from three tons per acre to The two most important factors limiting crop production in Southern Alberta are soil fertility ;ind water. Under irrigation, soil moisture no longer is limiting, but irrigation water should be applied in adequate amounts at the proper times to meet the needs of the plants and to enable them to use soil nutrients properly.
