The chairman of the feed grain committees for both the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association and the Canadian Cattlemen's Association says the federal government's new feed grain policy proposes an equitable marketing system. Boyd Anderson said in an in- terview Tuesday the policy creates a production incentive by eliminating provincial boundaries in the movement of grain and guaranteeing an ini- tial price. He also said that by placing the grain under the jurisdiction of the agricultural products feed grain prices will never be higher than export prices. Mr. Anderson added that the policy takes into account the regional advantage of raising both grain livestock in the West.

Trust company stocks may become depressed TORONTO With short-term interest rates on tfae trust companies are unlikely this year to match the strong growth of 1972 and shares should not be Canadian Business Sea-vice says. Trust company stocks ap- pear to be in an attractive buying range but they may be not because of a general market but because they have already discounted a lower rate of growth for the in- vestment firm says. Another factor in the near- term uncertainty is that legis- lation affecting the industry is to be reviewed this year and while amendments are ex- pected to be might not be quite so favor- view of this mixed out- look we cannot recommend tbat trust company shares be even though they may be nor can we rec- ommend that they be least until after we have ex- the likely outcome of new government Trust companies borrow from the public In the form of deposit demand and term deposits and rein- vest mainly in mortgages but also in treasury bills and short-term deposits. For that interest rates are important. The ob- jective is to obtain a return which exceeds the payout on borrowed funds by 2 to per cent. This margin comes under pressure when the spread narrows between short and long-term as it now is j doing. j the spread as it did in 1971 and profits are appreciably fat- tened and there is great temptation to Tjorrow short and lend long.' the consequences of yielding to such temptation can be very costly when the trend rever- ses In recent years the trust companies have emphasized term rather 'than demand de- posits and favored five-year mortgage investments which match well with term depos- Canadian Business Serv- ice says. Although trust companies are like banks in that they of- fer variety of savings serv- ices and are supervised by the there are enough differences that the two do not directly compete. LIMITED IN LOANS Trust companies may not make commercial and banks may not provide trust services. The personal loan business of trust companies may not exceed about seven per cent of total assets. While trust companies are limited in their credit-creat- ing chartered banks can turn to the Bank of Can- ada. Canadian Business Service says revisions to the Bank Act in 1967 put banks in a more favorable position at a time when inter- est rates were rising. Trust companies' profits were squeezed in the following two years. With the amendments to the Trust and Loan Act in the competitive balance was largely restored and new op- portunities in housing and consumer lending were pro- vided. In times of restrictive eco- nomic policies such as in 1969- 1970 when short-term rales tend to rise faster than do long-term trust com- panies are forced to raise their payout on deposits and short-term investment certifi- cates to remain competitive. rising trend in interest rates and the less ex- pansionary policies in effect in 1973 will moderate the trust companies' growth this Canadian Business Service says.
