Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Ric Swihart Anti-freeze shortage may trouble farmers What may yet become known as the anti CLIMAX freeze era is again on in sunny Southern Alberta. The threatened shortages of this wonder agent which prevents rust, stops frost and affords cooling like a super hero is on us for the second year. And. of course, so are the ever present price rises that accompany these threatened shortages. One of the major oil companies came through with some important information for users of antifreeze. Since that includes almost every motorist, it is valuable to know The company claims a world wide shortage of industrial chemicals has resulted in a tight supply situation for ethylene glycol antifreeze and prices will be higher this winter Don't yawn just yet. There is more. This company has put itself out on a limb by stating it is recommending a selling price of per gallon cash and carry and installed. Of course there is a catch of sorts. The company also reports service station dealers are free to set their own price. Now the company also said it expects to be able to buy only 75 per cent of the antifreeze it obtained from suppliers last year. Dow Chemical of Canada Limited, one of two major suppliers of ethylene glycol. claims price increases for antifreeze can be attributed to the increased price of crude oil or petroleum gas, the material it is derived from. It is ethylene glycol which is the culprit. Dow claims this substance is in critical short supply throughout the world. By increasing the production of antifreeze, three other derivatives made from ethylene glycol would be in even shorter supply. Dow is going to try to buy up to 10 per cent of its requirements from foreign markets. By doing this the giant company feels the supply of antifreeze won't be as bad as some sectors indicate. But the oil companies do not plan to let their regular customers sit in a snow bank and freeze. One firm has come up with an antifreeze extender for for a 15-ounce can. This product will allow motorists to extend the life of their antifreeze to three years from the normal two years On the local scene, a ol several garages indicated nobody knows for sure what they are going to charge for antifreeze this winter Sound familiar? One service station did say it would serve its customers first with what stocks of antifreeze it could get This was of particular interest to me because this station deals mainly with rural customers and it sounds like a lot of farmers are going to have their stocks of antifreeze. It was nice to get a note from Kent Olinger, executive secretary with the Canadian Maine Anjou Association the other day. It seems that Sunshine Farms and Ranching Limited of Cranford has made Anjou history, becoming the member of the national organization. Sunshine Farms consists of five ranchers: Bill Tverkutes of Taber, Taz, Tom and Hink Urano of Barnwell and Bill Allen of Cranford. Lalavee Jensen of Magrath has been re elected president of Canadian Co operative Wool Growers Limited at the group's 56th annual meeting held in Edmonton recently. Mr. Jensen says wool prices have fallen sharply in recent weeks but remain much above the depressed levels from 1967 to 1972. The announced increase in dairy prices for farmers is greeted with enthusiasm in this corner. The Canadian dairy policy has agreed to give producers 91 cents per hundred pounds of industrial milk produced more than they now get. Industrial milk is differentiated from fluid milk for drinking purposes. The extra cost will be shared by government and the milk product consumer 30 per cent government and 70 per cent consumer. One thing I can see now is a public outcry at higher milk prices. And it will likely be widespread since almost everybody uses industrial milk in one form or another. Remember cheese and ice cream are industrial milk products which will feel the price hike. Farmfair 74, Edmonton's answer to Lethbridge's Rocky Mountain Livestock Show and Sale, is scheduled for Oct. 31 to Nov. 9 at the For All Your HYDRAULIC NEEDS Contact AVAILABLE NOW AT... OLIVER Industrial Supply Ltd. 236 36 St. North Edmonton Exhibition Grounds. Entry deadline for the Edmonton show is Sept. 3.
