Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, Auouit 8, 1972 THE IETH8RIDGE HERALD 7 Japanese happy with Ca nadian ''Kobe-type'' beef "Canada's .shipment of beef ever received in Japan." This WOH the reaction of Japanese buyers Lo the "Kobe- type" sent to thai country by Itic Alberta Call EC Commis- sion. Paul Htxlgman, secretary- 4-H news IlEADYMADE The regular meeting of the Keadymade 4-H Beef Club was called to order by Vice- Prcsidcnt Hank Kortliius. John the pledge. Roll call was answered with slall dec- oration suggestions. The minutes of the previous meeting were read. The treas- urer and junior leaders gave reports. It was decided to enter n float in the Ivethbridgc parade. June 30 was set as the dale for calf trimming and prepar- ation of Ibe float at Mr. Tern- plelon's. June 2fi and 27 were set as the dates to go to Walerton, The next meeting is on July 5. CLUB TIEPOKTER Sherry llruska manager of Die commission, slated "the Japanese have a different .standard for quality than we do; they prefer ex- tremely high marbling and a deep red color in the meat. The youiiy cows fed at the Uni- versity of Alberta for tiie com- mission were able to meet these criterion." However, the Canadian cat- tle industry is going to have to face tlw facts that large quant- ities of beef exports may not forthcoming for several rea- sons. Hodgmon continued, "The Japanese importing system and quota allocations are extremely complicated and involved. In a for nutshell, importers and whole- salers arc allocated less quota than there is demar.G for They will then try to make the lu'gbest return possible on what quota they have available to thorn." Japanese buyers are able to import beef from trailia and New Zealand at new tomato Within a few years, all Americans wilt be eating rec- langular tomatoes. The fruit will be firm, more fleshy limn juicy, flattened at the sides and of such identical propor- tions lhat they will look as if they have come off assembly linos. Koon they will replace the roundish, squishy, succu- lent tomatoes with all their eccentric seems and bulges forever, Many American are already eating oblong tomatoes without knowing it, because some are being grown in California for t ho ca n n i i ndusl ry. Tli cy were developed in conjunction with a new kind of mechanical harvester, each made to ac- commodate the other, by agri- cultural researchers of the Uni- versity of California. The har- vester moves up and down among the vines, and the ob- long tomatoes obligingly plunk right into it, sliding down a square pipe that was made to their measure. The trouble with tbc tomato that God invented, the Cali- fornia researchers determined, was il.s uncertain shape, its Kquashiness, Its inability to rip- rn on the snme day as every other tomato on the same vine, and the fact that it was so firmly anchored to UK stalk that it had to be picked by human hands. It was also too thin skinned to be handled by machinery. Even when It could be tugged from its stern by a mechanical harvester, it would roll around Inside Lite machine like a ping- pong ball, bursting nnd then decomposing Uie works. So nn oblong, easy to pick, firm, thick skinned, mass-ripened tomato has been achieved by man. "It looks like a flattened sau- said a University of California spokesman.

"Price will be the determining factor and Oceania beef will IK; our main competitor for large volume shipments. There will likely be a mar- ket for a speciality product similar to our "Kobe-type" beef and, now that the Japan- ese have seen that we are cap- able of producing this product, it should be easier for us to ob- tain a premium price for this high quality.
