Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ------Jhundoy, Apiil 27, 1972 THE IETHDRIDGE HERALD 15 carloads daily needed for export grain (ncpriiilctl from The Western Producer) Canada's grain export com- mitments will require the rail- ways to average carloads of grain daily to export position, says E. K. Turner, president of Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Speaking at a public meeting, Mr. Turner said the West Coast needs 800 cars daily now and movement to Thunder Bay will require daily after May 1. "Tins level will need to be sus- tained right through Lo the end of November. At present, move- ment is far below what's re- he said. "It Is essential that the maxi- mum amount of rail equipment he organized right away if we are to reach the export goal of (100 million bushels in this crop year. The federal government has the responsibility to see that Canada has the kind of trans- portation system to mee.l the needs of the enlJrc country. "The next few weeks are cru- cial." He noted that the severest winter on record had hampered westward grain movement, and (be transportation system had to be properly geared up to take advantage of the situation when the weather is right. In fact, he added, all seg- ments of the grain handling in- dustry have to gear up if ex- port targets of one billion bush- els in a yenr are Lo be reached. "To help in grain movement, better equipment is needed, and we're suggesting that Hie gov- ernment provide nn extra hopper cars strictly for grain movement. Those would have a rapacity of roughly bush- els each and the total cost would he million. It is rea- sonable for the government to iibsisL the grain industry this way because grain is n dollar earner for the whole Canadian economy." Mr. Turner also outlined ac- tion being taken In bolster Ihe world price oC wheat. He reviewed the problems at Geneva a year ago during un- Agrecment w it harcsanblo successful negotiations to estab- lish an International Wheat Agreement with reasonable price ranges. The stumbling block, he pointed out, was the United Slates which "was not prepared to press for a price that, from the producers' point of view, ad equate." Vnit.ce vet services director Dr. Cr. R. Purncll, deputy minister, Alberta department of agriculture, announced tho appointment of Dr. II, N. Vanco as director of the department's veterinary services division. Dr. Vance was head of tho laboratory services branch, lie replaces Dr. .1. (1. O'Dononhuc recently appointed assistant de- puty minister in chnrpc of the plant industry, animal indus- try, veterinary services and ir. rigation divisions. Dr. Vance joined llic depart- ment of agriculture in IBS 3. In he was appointed director nnd hcntl of the laboratory ser- vices branch nnd was respon- sible for much of the planning and developm c n t resulting in Ihe opening of regional veteri- nary diagnostic laboratories in I.cthbriclge in and Fair- view in JD70. Mr. Turner said the price re- ceived for wheat in internation- al markets is the lowest in the last 20 years. This did not make any sense. He emphasized that efforts are going on to try to persuade the U.S. and other countries that an Increased price Ls rea- sonable and to urge the calling of an international conference where a satisfactory agreement can be worked out. It might not be possible to have such an agreement for a year or so but "it is important la extend an effort now to cre- ate the kind of environment that will lead to a satisfactory agreement when the exporlinfl and importing conn tries do meet again." Mr. Turner said farmers must take advantage of all opportu- nities to keep their costs down and one of the ways o[ doing this is to make full use of the organisations they own, such us the Wheat Pools." "It is important for farmers to work to consolidate their strength; it is important for them to build and maintain their own organizations so that they can exert influence beyond ihcir numbers."
