Two Lethbridge Hr-ndicrafts Incorporated and the Home Maintenance Pro- gram for Pensioners and Sen- ior have had to ap- poal for work during the sum- mer. The problem is not the willingness of the students to but the practicality of the project ideas in the first place.

These two factors seemed to have worked against it.

Reflections ________ The tranquility of a Lethbridge summer's eve is mirrored by the still waters of Henderson Lake in this photo by Herald photographer Harry Sheep sale Record protein prices push up feeding costs scheduled By RIC SW1HART Herald Staff Writer a major compon- ent cf livestock and poultry feeds in North is in ample supply in Canada but record high prices are causing skyrocketing produc- tion costs in the feeding in- dustry. An embargo on protein-de- rivative crops and products to keep supplies in the United States and the establishment of an export licencing system by Canada for the same pur- pose has tightened the move- ment of protein in both coun- according to Harold an official of Burns Foods Ltd. in Calgary. Mr. Hanna said the present rail strike situation is also making it difficult to move the extra supplies of protein in Eastern Canada to the west where the majority of the livestock is produced. He said the location of the protein is now causing a major problem for the indus- try. Fish oil and soybeans are in a good supply in On- tario and they can't be moved to Alberta under the present situation. And now the price of pro- tein in the form of fish oil and soybeans is so high in West- ern Canada that feed manu- facturers have to defer pur- chases for other sources of protein. Mr. Banna said the present protein situation has been caused by a poor fish meal harvest in Peru. This ran the U.S. short of supplies and re- sulted in the embargo. was caught in the he said. If the export insti- tuted to stop shipments of protein from Canada unless there was at least a three- month supply in this and the embargo in the U.S. were nobody w u 1 d know where the said Mr. Hanna.

Tom general manager of the Idaho Cattle Feeders Association will be a featured speaker during the meeting. Without the present restric- he predicted that protein prices would be even higher than at present. Also adding to the costs of the feedeis is the recently announced higher prices for initial payments for all grains. Jtir. Hanna said even with the present high feed livestock and hog feeders are able to make more money than ever before while poul- try producers are suffering. The prices for tur- key and eggs have but they will have to advance more just to cover the in- creased costs of the grain components in the feed mix- he said. He said the higher produc- tion costs for livestock and hogs has been reflected in the marketplace. Producers are now getting record prices for both cattle and hogs. Mr. Hanna said the consum- public has shown it is will- ing to pay more for beef and pork and he feels the public will pay more for poultry products also. He pointed to the higher input costs of farmers as a possible problem area. the farmers become con- cerned with the higher input costs of their they might cut back on produc- said Mr. Hanna. If this the supply will become less and then the cost could go even higher.
