Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Friday, Auguil 6, 197] THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 AgN BllSilieSS NeWS Alberta farming, ranching, dairy, poultry 4-H winners are declared A total of 152 selected 4-H club members from throughout the province gathered at the Olds Agricultural and Voca- tional College recently for Ihe 1971 Provincial 4-H selections. The attending members took jjarl in a two day testing pro- am whereby 46 members were selected to represent the Alberta 4-H movement in a variety ol out-of-province tra- vel programs. Tlie selected members are chosen to be representatives of the 4 H movement and am- bassadors of the province at different 4-H conferences and exchange trips in Canada and the United Slates. At the conference programs the members are involved in an educational experience that is inlended to enhance leader- Government loan backs A government guaranteed loan of up to will be made available immediately to the Egg and Fowl Marketing Board to help re- lieve the egg marketing prob- lems that are plaguing farmers who produce small quantities of eggs. Agriculture Minister H. A. RustP says the loan, available through a bank of the Board's choice, is to be used as neces- and market Ihe ship skills and abilities through such means as speakers, group discussion, visiting with nation- al1 political figures, touring in- dustrial areas, and olher acti- vities that hopefully increases Ihe members awareness of his country and his world. In the exchange programs the members are hosted by an- other family in one of the other provinces of Canada for a 10- day living experience in an- other part of Canada. The southern Alberta mem- bers selected to attend the var- ious award trins follow: National 4-H Club confer- ence, Toronlo and Ottawa, Dale Jorgensen of Del Bonila; Inter-provincial 4-H Exchange, Wendy Miller of Lethbridge to New Brunswick, Diann Eolduc of St-nvely to Ontario and David Heli of Taber to British Columbia: U.S. National 4-H Club Conference in Washing- Ion to Randy Mclntosli of Nob- leford; Conservation crrnp in Montana to Narda Hinman of Cardston; alternates, Debbie Thiessen of Courts. Jerry Lunde of Kipp and Patli Seku- ra of Taber. Charlie Milles of Calgary was named the outstanding 4-H member in the province and received the Premier's Award from Hon Robert Clark, minis- ter of education. OFF TO CAMP County 40-Mile 4-H members board Ihe bus for a 1rip to the J. O. Guesl Ranch al Pincher Creek. They are bound for a five-day camp. Members aged 12 lo 15 were eligible Ihis year.

The Egg and Fowl Marketing Board will invite Jake Super-stein, a pioneer Alberta egg and poultry with con' 'i in Canada and the U.S., to act as an agenl to assist in marketing this product. Statistics released by the Egg and Fowl Marketing Board indicate that about 17 per cent of the registered egg producers market 90 per cent of Alberta's egg requirements at a realistic price for their product. Mr. Kuste notes that the loan to the Board is to assist smaller producers who for a variety of reasons have difficulty marketing their eggs at any price One of the key problems is that it lias not been economical for grading stations to grade their small lots of eggs. This caused severe economic hardship on many sn.aller producers, particularity in northeastern Alberta, and has forced several egg grading stations out of busines the last ser The AIljerLa Fresh Vegc able Commission has announced details of its PTinual vegetable production tour. The IOIT is a two-day event August 1C and 17. and participants will visit production units in the Taber. Coaldate. Picture Butte, and Eastern Irrigation District areas. One of the highlights of this lour will be the first Alberta demonstration of a new mechanical fresh market sweet com harvester. In addition a close look will be taken at production methods of cabbage, car rots, cucumbers, onions, turnips and various other crops. The lour will start at Taber on Monday the 16 al a.m. from the parking area immediately, in front of the new recreation complex, and wind ;ip thai evening with a barbeque and corn-feed al the Alberta Horticultural Research Centre in Brooks. Tuesday will be spent in Ihe Eastern Irrigation District, the tour leaving at a.m. from AHHC, and will wind up (hat afternoon in the Rolling Hills area. If you plan to participate and require accommodation in Brooks for Monday evening, August IG, reserve the space Club grounds. High point youth of the show award was taken by Sam Lumley of Coalliurst. Eagles First Call, ridden by Debbie Stronski of Turin, was the champion performance horse in the judged events. Black Clouds Lark, ridden by Sam Lumley took champion performance horse honors in the timed events. There were 78 horses entered in the one-day event, most of them from southern Alberta and British Columbia.

MILNE high in phosphorus nitrogen, Soil Scientist l and organic matter. However, The quality of the environ- lalera1 of Ihe nulri- menl is of concern to all Cana- 1 dians. During the past 40 years I chemical fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorus have been used in increasing amounts in Western Canada replace the nutrients removed cnk 'T "T-t fefL tlus lo lhc, absorption of he phosphorus by the sod and he '-formation of he n.trates ng to to olher forms from the crops and soil by successive to maintain or in- crease the level of production. These same nuLrients, nitrogen and phosphorus, have been ac- cused of being pollutants, of Liquids that run off feedlots into streams may temporarily increase their nutrient content. The operators should therefore ensure that the runoff does not drain into streams. Such runoff should be diverted so that it akes and streams! To what'ex-1 penetrates the soil and thus re- lent is this accusation true? duces the pollution potential. At the Lethbridge Research Station we have been conduct- ing investigations to find out more about the movement of chemical plant nutrients in the soil and the extent to which nitrogen and phosphorus find their way to surface water and to groundwater. Our results show that the movement of these nutrients has not contri- buted to pollution. Phosphorus in excess of the needs of plants is held firmly by the soil and the soluble nitrates are quickly taken up by the plants or con- verted to other forms that do not cause pollution. Soil erosion by wind and water can contribute nutrients to surface waters. The accum- ulating sediments release nutri- ents into the water that stim- ulate the growth of aquatic plants. This is particularly troublesome in irrigation can- als. Soil erosion also lowers the fertility of the land. However, it can be prevented by proper management practices. Effluent from feedlots also is regarded as a potential pollu- tant. Our studies show that the soil and the groundwater under and near fecdlols are often When Uie ground is frozen, the runoff should be diverted into a storage basin for later appli- cation to the soil. We have found that in heavi- ly manured fields the accumu- lation of nutrients in the soil and the groundwater has been negligible. This suggests that fcedlot manure can be spread safely on the land both for dis- posal and for its fertilizer value. The soil, because of its chemical nature and the acti- vity of micro-organisms it con- tains, acts as a medium for absorption and for converling nutrients to forms that do not readily move. FIGHT MOSQUITOES California scientists have found a way to cut the mosquito population in its rice fields with- out causing pollution. The an- swer is Minnows. Entomologists have found that slocking the paddies with 200 mature Gam- busia aflinis female minnows per acre reduces mosquito pro- duction by 95 per cent.
