Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - TH1 lETHMIDOf HIRAID - Friday, February 76, 1971 Wheat board delivery quota policy modified WINNIPEG (CP) - The Canadian Wheat Board has modified its delivery quota policy and Assistant Chief Commissioner G. N. Vogel says it will have the effect of making the farmer "more of a free agent." A pamphlet outlining q uo t a policies for the 1971-72 crop year, which begins Aug. 1, will be mailed to wheat board's more than 200,000 permit book holders. The modifications in the quota policies won't greatly alter the general framework of the quota system. The board will continue to authorize quotas for specific grains and if necessary, grades of grain. The board will implement a system of non - cumula t i v e quotas for wheat, barley and oats. This non - cumulative system is designed to encourage producers to make their deliveries of grain on a regular basis. At a press conference today, Mr. Vogel explained that the non - cumulative system would be authorized for specific periods of time and that producers wishing to fill their quota would have to do so in the period that the quota is in effect. The wheat board is also revamping the assignable acreage system. As at the present, general delivery quotas in the next crop year will be based on a producer's acreage assignment but a new formula will be used to determine the assignable acreage base. The new formula is being used because the federal government is not continuing its LIFT program this year. A producer's assignable acres now will be determined by totalling all land seeded to the six quota grains in 1971, all land that is summerfallowed in a producer's 1971 crop program, all land seeded or planted to miscellaneous crops, and land actually seeded to perennial forage up to a maximum of one-third of the total land in summer-fallow. Mr. Vogel explained that the new quota policies will give grain producers complete freedom in the distribution of their assignable acres among the va-riocs grains. A producer will be able, if he wishes, to assign all his assignable acres to one kind of grain. Under the present policy the producer's acreage assignment to barley, oats, rye, soft white spring wheat, rapeseed and flax had to include the land he had actually seeded to these crops. The new system will allow the grain farmer to assign any number of his assignable acres to the delivery of a particular grain. Mr. Vogel said the policy modifications were aimed at making the quota system more market - orientated. The board also announced new delivery provisions for grains to specialty markets. These provisions, covering the delivery of selected barley and oats, delivery of rye to distilleries and flax and rape-seed to crushing plants, are designed to eliminate inequities in the present distribution system. In the past, producers were provided with extra delivery privileges for selected oats and barley to ensure that the special requirements of the market for these grains could be met. At the same time, supplementary and advance quotas were used to provide local distilleries and oilseed crushers with adequate supplies of rye, rapeseed and flaxseed. The new provisions wilP require the producer wishing to take advantage of specialty markets to make separate acreage assignments' to the delivery of these grains. The number of bushels that can be delivered for each acre that has been assigned to the grain is SO bushels per assigned acre for selected oats, 25 bushels per assigned acre for rye to distilleries, SO bushels per assigned acre of rapeseed for crushing plants and 15 bushels per assigned acre for flaxseed for crushing plants. Producers who have assigned acreage to the delivery of grain to a specialty market will not lose the quota base if they are unable to take advantage of this delivery opportunity. The producer would then be able to use this acreage for delivery of grains to country ele-I vators under the regular quota. Oddities in the News CARDIFF, Wales (AP) -Stewart Prosser jumped from his truck when he saw a bank being robbed, grabbed a shotgun from one robber and tripped up the other, and came back to find a parking ticket on his truck. A judge awarded the 61-year-old truck driver �50 ($125) Tuesday for his act of "conspicuous courage." The police tore up the parking ticket with apologies. The bank robbers got 14 years STAFFORD, England (Reu-ter) - Two men carrying suitcases full of stolen property had a sinking feeling as they raced across a snow-covered lawn.
