Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta it THI HOMO Farm products exports climb WASHINGTON (CP) Ex- ports of United States farm products jumped to a record million last year, includ- ing a modest increase in farm- product sales to Canada, the ag- riculture department reported today. But Canada's sales to this country also increased, and the chronic Canadian deficit on such sales was lower than in 1969. Agriculture Secretary Clifford Hardin described the S.S. export total as "most heartening." Total agricultural export sales increased about 20 per cent in 1970 from the million of 1969. Hardin said the trend has con- tinued upward in the first weeks of 1971 and predicted the total for the fiscal ends June 30 for the U.S. government be substantially higher.

Soy- >eans, wheat, cotton and oner eld crops led the surge. Although Hardin did not spe- ifically deal with Canadian jade, a department official said J.S. exports to Canada totalled bout million in 1970, up ome three per cent from million in 1969. However, imports from Can- ada increased to million rom million in 1969, reduc- ing Canada's deficit in agricul- ural trade to million from 266 million the previous year. In addition '.o direct exports o Canada, the U.S. sent 5284 million worth of agricultural soybeans and eed Canada for rans-shipment to Europe. The 'irgure was up substantiall rom the million in trans- shipments in 1969. The department official said the increase in Canadian agri- cultural exports to the U.S. ap- peared to have been made up of slightly greater amounts in a wide range of products, rather than a substantial increase in any single category. More than 40 per cent of Can- ada's imports of U.S. agricul- tural products are accounted for by fresh fruit, vegetables and million in 1970 com- pared with million in 1969. Soybeans, corn, fresh pork and animal feed are other signifi- cant categories. lave cattle and processed meat were among the major items of Canadian agricultural exports to the U.S. Canada is the third-largest foreign customer for U.S. farm products, after Japan and West Germany. She ranks fifth in value of farm exports to the Brazil, Mexico, Aus- tralia and the Philippines. OTTAWA
