New classes, prize cash at seed fair Three new classes and more prize money have been added to the Ag .Expo 75 seed fair scheduled for the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion March 5 to 8. George Luco, seed fair chairman, said utility wheat and commercial sweet corn on the cob have been added to the open seed class and spring wheat has been added to the protein and quality class for 1975. He said the protein judging, introduced to the annual seed fair in 1974, proved interesting to exhibitors so it was expand- ed to bring more attention to the importance of protein in cereals. Utility wheat may be used as feed grains. The commercial sweet corn was picked during harvest in the fall of 1974, frozen and kept for display at this show as close to the conditions dur- ing harvest as possible. Cereal judges Jack Anderson of Medicine Hat, Mark Grant of the Lethbridge Research Station and Mike Cepin of Edmonton will judge both the pedigreed and open classes 4.

There are six classes of pedigreed seed with the overall winner taking home the Kizema Memorial Trophy, presented by Helen Kizeffla. A grand champion will be named from among the winners in 27 open seed classes. Judges for forage seed and hay entries are Mike Hanna and Don Wilson of the research station and Larry Gareau of Edmonton. In the potato section, the new challenge trophy will be presented to the best sample from four classes. Judges are W. E. Torfason of the research station and Jim Archibald of Lethbridge. Corn entries will be judged by Doug Minion of the Alberta department of agriculture in Lethbridge and beans by Gavin Kemp of the research station. In junior seed classes, a challenge trophy will be presented to the overall winner. All first place winners in all classes will be presented with special prizes.
