Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, February 4, 1972 Fa I'm and ranch nolcs beef (oCanada-U, price B By Ric Swiharf flog marketing board wants exclusion horn farm products legislation-C-176 'I'III-. continues. Tliii-ly live. finished beef carcassi's loft Cannila destined for n Japanese speciality market which could open up new avenues of trade lor Canadian beef preriiicls. The carcasses, ranging in weight from lint) to 850 pounds were selected from (JO cows and heifers that had been specially fed at the University of Al- berta's beef cattle research station at Kllerslic to produce Kobe-type beef. The idea behind this project is lo the proper feeding lechniques which will give the right carcass quality lo meet the demands of the market. The main characteristic of Kobe beef is a high degree of marbling (liberal amount of intramuscular The cows used in the project were selected be- cause of infertility mainly. If such a marketable ani- mal carcass can be gathered from an animal which is otherwise reduced in value, the livestock industry in Canada will prosper. A side light to this shipment is the fact that it. is the first lime a Canadian beef producers' organiza- tion has attempted to export beef. The Alberta Cuttle Commission was Ihe push behind the shipment. The commission apparently is interested in open- ing markets for other Canadian beef products in Japan, not just Ihe speciality product market, The new two-price system for Canadian wheat has been lauded by all quarters so far. The Palliser Wheat Growers Association speaks highly of the prin- ciples behind the move but are awaiting final ram- ifications of the plan before making a policy state- ment. Orville Reber, Alberta director on the Palliser board, said Ihc two-year-old organization is looking at the issue hut at this time wants recognition where recognition is the hands of Ihe Saskatchewan Federation of Agriculture and Unifarm He said these two groups were the main pushes for Hie system. An interesting note on the distribution of the money will the rich get richer or will Ihe total wheat growing population benefit. Since the higher price is only applicable lo mill- ing quality wheat, if the government subsidy applies only to farmers growing milling quality wheat, then these farmers who have been getting the best prices will get even better prices. If the government spreads the price benefits over the entire grains industry, all fanners will benefit. If this doc.sn't come about, ma> be the government, will be forced to have a two-price system for feed also and so on down the line. Warble inspection in all Alberta auction markets is now compulsory. Bob Dyck at Fort Macleod Auc- tion Market is of Ihe opinion that Ihe warbles won't be delected for about another month so the big yellow W won't be spread around for sonic lime. .VII aspects of the livestock trade seem to be in favor of the program. The regional agricultural ser- vices board lias even gone so far as to pass a resolu- tion asking the federal government to include the three Alberta terminal markets under the jurisdiction of the program. As it is, 40 per cent of the saleable animals pass through the terminal livestock yards and so escape (he veterinarian and (he rules as applied lo warble infested cattle. Dr. M. A.

I. Management if. depends on what you do. Cattle "rubs in horse J. Cattle grubs are usually con- sidered to be parasites only of cattle. In sprmg the large bee- like warble flies altacli their eggs to hairs on the legs nnd lower parts of cattle. The eggs hatch in four to seven days and the young larvae enter the host throuph the skin and begin lo migralo through the connective (issues. About seven months lalcr the larvae have reached the back o[ ihc animal. Here they cut a brc.-ilhing bole through I lie skin of Ihe host and remain in or unrbles for another three months. The grubs, r.ow mature, drop to the ground, pupate, and emerge as flies, which mate and lay eggs, thus compiling Ihe life cycle. On rare occasions humans, goats, dogs, and cats have been Infested by cattle giubs but Uic only ho.st that frcqucnlly harliors ealtlc grubs is the horse. Infcslalions in horses have been reported from most major horse-breed- ing areas of the Northern Hemisphere. Many of lluvsi; rc- poyLs are (a.-e hLslorics of grubs lhai have pnxluml MJ- vere paralvtic symptoms, which apparently result [rum migrating grubs invading the brain and spinal cord. General- ly, liowcver, they form warbles in the backs as they do in cat- lie, but only rarely do they de- vri'jp In maturity. Only in two have grubs IWTM reporf- rl lo cen-.plele their develop- ment in h'irM'.v In recent years Ihc Letji- bridge Research Station has re- eeived many complaints from cattle ranchers in southern Al- berta whose saddle slock have been infested with cattle During the busy calving season the presence of even one hlc in the saddle area viill pro- duce enough festering (o render a ranch horse unfit for work. In i a survey of ranch horses in j southern Albcrla we found ihal j about 20 per cent of the horses were infested, but on a few ranches as many as 30 [o K per cent of the horses were in- fesled. Host of Uie infested horses had one or two warhles in Ilicir backs but some had as many a.s nine. The infesUilious seem lo occur most frequently on range horses !hat associate with catlle during Ihe warble fly season, fn general, ranchers who effectively controlled Ihc grubs m their callle had few or no horses infested. Systemic insecticides, which are recommended to control the young migrating larvae in cattle, have not registered for use on horses. A few of Ihc sun-eyed ranchers have treat- ed their horses with Iho callle preparation, bul this practice cannot ho recommended bc- j cause the toxicily of these j chemicnls lo horses is inMifii- ciently known. Tho grubs may squeezed out but this is diffi- cult in horses and frequently causes severe festering. The grabs may he surgically removed by a veterinarian.
