Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 18, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 1917 ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER THE GRAIN BOARD'S DECISION (Farm and Ranch Review 1. Recently we stated oilltorlally that the Grain Commission Hoard had lieon given the blKKest job yet delegated to nnv grain of. men in '.'annda. namely, "the safeguarding of the Interests of both producer and consumer nnd at the same time overseeing that the carrying charges from one to the other a'ro fair, and also wisely protecting; tlio disposal of our surplus grain." The Board has made its tlrst move by fixing the maximum wheat price Fort William basis for balance of the present crop at ?2.4f� per bushel to take effect August 1st. When this news was flashed over the wires of Western Canada it created quite a furore among farmers largely because of what we are now informed was n wrong interpretation of its meaning. The general impression was that "present crop" naturally meant the 1!H. minimum price or i lmjiltl) of animals branch, department some other agreement made that ] 0i hours. If desired, the whole of the chicken may be prepared the same as the last part. In all cases take care not to expose the gem jars to a sudden change of temperature. Also, after the jars have cooled off, examine the tops to see that the covers are air-tight. During the cooking of the product, place the glass tops on the sealers but | do not fasten them. Any steam or gas which may be generated will escape. As soon, however, as the process is finished, fasten the tops securely. While describing the method of canning, something should be said about the poultry to be canned. What is preferred are good, plump fowls, with a fair, proportion of chickens, the bones of the latter giving a firmer jelly and lessening the danger of a soupy or slushy product. As a precaution against this condition, where the pack is straight fowl, gelatine may be. and often is used. So much has been said and written about the proper methods of starving, bleeding and plucking poultry for market that it is useless to go over them again. One can only emphasize tho necessity of exactness in carrying out the accepted principles in connection with these points, which are just as applicable to poultry to be canned as they are to those intended for tho market. There is another point which is important, although possibly its carrying out may detract from the appearance and affect the sale to an inexperienced buyer, namely, that all poultry intended for food, canned or otherwise, after being properly starved, bled and plucked, should be left undrawn and kept in a suitable temperature for a day or two in order that the chemical changes which follow the killing of the bird may have an opportunity to take place. decrease of $94,700.
