Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, April 30, 1974 Ric Swihart A bridge for sugar beets and the rising milk cost Farmers at the Iron Springs local of Unifarm this month were trying to bridge some problems and although everybody admitted the problems had to be bridged, the major discussion was where to locate the bridge. The bridge is of course one proposed for the Oldman River connecting Picture Butte with Lethbridge on a north- south line. The consensus is that Picture Butte will benefit from such a bridge in expanded population and better access to better facilities. Farmers feel the bridge is vital to the sugar beet industry in the Picture Butte factory area, a facility needed to ensure adequate supplies of beets for the factory. They claim the rail company isn't going to give the type of service needed to keep the factory operating. Without the factory, much of the sugar beet land will be lost. Now the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission is sticking a block in the path of the bridge until all their precious little planning is done. The commission wants to make sure the location of the bridge won't interfere with anything. And this is sound thinking. But if a few feet are being dragged in. completing that planning, to the extent that the bridge is delayed unduly, agriculture will suffer. And it is far more important to expedite events that will benefit agriculture than to wait to satisfy the whims of a planning commission that has some power and just has to use it. If the planning commission wants some input to- the location of the bridge, it should get busy and make the plans so work can get underway. There was considerable uproar early this month about the streaking price of fluid milk. Consumers had to shell out four cents more for each quart of milk, consumed. But money is relevent to what it is spent on. And true to human nature, in most cases, the human cry went up when a very basic food item increased in price. The new price for a quart of homogenized milk, increased to 39 cents from 35, brought the price of one ounce of milk to 1.22 cents. I wonder how mnay children will- be cut off milk. Ro-Neet controls weeds _ _ _ for better sugar beet yields There's no better way to control weeds in sugar beets than to use Ro-Neet herbicide before planting. Mix Ro-Neet in the soil field-wide and control weeds in the rows and in the middles as well. Ro-Neet works on weeds rain or shine. It's mixed right in the soil in the weed germination zone where it destroys weeds as they sprout. You don't have to wait for rain or irrigate to make it work. With clean fields from the start, thinning and blocking are easier. And less expensive. Liquid Ro-Neet 7.2E is easy to use. Ro-Neet controls nightshade, barnyard- grass, wild oats, pigweed, foxtails and many other troublesome weeds. For bigger beet yields and easier harvest, get Ro-Neet now. Always follow label directions carefully. Stauffer Chemica! Company of Canada, Ltd., Montreal and Vancouver. Distributed in Ca'nada by; Chlpman Limited Beloeil, P.O., Hamilton, Winnipeg SuiutTer At the same time, beer sells fOk for a case of 12 bottles. This computes down to a price of 2.08 cents per ounce. It is even worse if drinking draft beer in a bar. In this case, a 7Vz ounce glass costs 20 cents, a price of 2.66 cents per ounce. But how many people will quit drinking beer, even if it goes up? The 4th annual Western Canada New Breeds Sale was set to go at Perlich Bros. Auction Market April 22 and it promised to be one of the best. Featured at the sale were 30 purebred Brown Swiss animals from Burstall, Sask. out of a herd which uses semen from the giant bull Golden Nugget. Limousin, Gelbvieh and Simmenlal animals, both bulls and females, were offered. And while on the topic of sales, congratulations should be welcomed for a job well done by the Southern Alberta Cattle Breeders Association in the 1974 Lethbridge Spring Bull Show and Sale. The two-day epic was run off in as neat a fashion as one would want to see. The fact that Aberdeen Angus bulls brought an average of and Herefords didn't hurt their image either. A tip of the Chinook hat to Edna Pozzi, one of the hardest working, most knowledgeable and friendly people working around the spacious Exhibition Pavilion and Whoop-Up Pavilion. When any agricultural activity is brewing at the pavilions, Edna can be found hard at work in the inner sanctums of the office. And no problem is too great or impossible to solve. The Chinook welcomes the opportunity to work many more years with her. Some more names in agricultural news Jack Hutchinson of Warner remains the Southern Alberta director for the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board. Dick Page, director for the Didsbury region, was named chairman of the board for 1974 after spending some years as vice chairman. United Farmers of Alberta elected Howard Haney of Picture Butte first vice president, a step up from the second vice president's position he had held the year previous. Peter Voroney, well-known farmer in the Tilley, Brooks, Vauxhall region, is the other Southern Albertan on the board of directors of UFA. District agriculturists throughout Southern Alberta are armed with information about the worms and how to help control them. I hope not too many farmers are like this reporter who knew he should take precautions to order lots of a special type of syrup to make caramel candy but didn't. Now the factory has stopped making the syrup and its going to be a hot, dry summer without something to munch on.
