Start truck program to move grain WINNIPEG (CP) At least nine million bushels of wheat will be trucked from country elevators to interior terminals in Saskatchewan and Alberta this winter as part of the largest trucking program yet undertaken by the Canadian Wheat Board. Commercial trucks Monday began hauling durum and red spring wheat from country elevators in Saskatchewan to government terminals at Saskatoon and Moose Jaw the Wheat Board said in a news release. The special trucking program, the largest since trucks were first used to move grain to interior terminals two years ago, will continue until July 31 The trucking agreements are the longest negotiated to date by the board. The size of the 1974 program will enable the wheat board to build up supplies to take advantage of additional export opportunities.

Heifers sold steady Chicago markato CHICAGO (AP) Silver futures touched lirrits for one session on the major United States exchanges- Wednesday for the fifth consecutive day The demand for silver futures continued strong, but sellers were scarce Limit moves for one session were increased in New York and Chicago to 15 cents an ounce from 10. The expiring February options have no trading limits. Copper futures fell to limits, and heavy declines were posted in coffee, rnciia. and wool futures. Cotton and orange juice were mixed. All commodities on the Chicago Board of Trade fell under liquidation that, in part, consisted of profit-taking on recent long positions Wheat, corn. soybeans, soy oil and meal eased. On the Chicago Mercantile Kxchange. pork bellies, shell eggs, live cattle and hog futures all declined for a variety of reasons. Cattle and hog futures declined despite light marKetings. The overriding concern appeared to'be a truckers' strike of some duration. Pork bellv futures were sold on increased .storage reports, while shell eggs eased on reports of higher inventories Weakness in gram futures was attributed to a lack of incentive for any sustained price move in either direction Karly selling was attributed to reports the I'.S government will buy_ wheat from Russia or Canada. tiie corn and oats welling was associated with liquidation in wheat. Soybeans, oil and meal weakness was largely profit-taking and concern that Russia's sunflower seed oil production might cut into U.S. soybean oil and soybean sales.
