Alfalfa processing plant gathers support at Taber Agriculture society formed at Raymond RAYMOND (HNS) - David Kinney, Bert Hall and Andrew Grbavac have been elected to form an executive for a Raymond and District agriculture ociety. The charter for the society has been applied for, and a TABER (HNS) - An alfalfa processing plant for the Taber district is seen as a distinct possibility, judging from the interest shown by producers at an exploratory meeting held recently. More than 40 farmers, including a sampling of feeders, turned out to the meeting to hear department of agriculture officials discuss the various facets of growing, processing, and marketing the alfalfa product. Plant industry forage supervisor, Larry Gareau of Edmonton, discussed the economics of producing alfalfa in comparison with other cash crops on irrigated land, and the seemingly unlimited market for alfalfa "cubes" and pellets. DETAILS Alex Chramka of Tilley, president of Tirol Dehydrators Ltd. when the new plant was established at Tilley last year, outlined in some detail the course of events which set up the lim-. ited company. Financed at $600,000 the plant now produces the cubes - miniature bales about one and a half inches square compressed from dried alfalfa under heat and added moisture, he said. Supported by facts given i>y plant superintendent Fred Vir-ostek, Mr. Chrumka told of the satisfaction of growers in the sale of alfalfa "on the stump" at $15 per ton. All harvesting operations are being done by the company which* employed up to 27 local people during peak operations. While the company had planned for an export market, it was noted local requirements of dairy farms and feed lots took up the entire production. Trial shipments were made to Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, and to the Fraser Valley in B.C. A ripe export market to the United States and Japan could not be accommodated, said Ma*. Chrumka. Following an enthusiastic question period, 14 farmers put their names on the line as being willing to produce 1,000 acres out of the minimum of 3,000 needed for an economical operation. The interest of farmers at the meeting indicated no difficulty in securing sufficient raw product for the operation. It is now expected that district agriculturist Murray F. Wilde will call a meeting of growers to further explore such' an industry.
