S. LtTKBRIBGE, ALBIRTA SEE US FOR ALL YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Canada will have record grain year By HIC SWfflART Stiff Writer REGINA With grain ex- 65 million bushels ahead of the saint period last year, Canada is virtually assured ol surpassing the 706 million bu- shel export record established in the 1970-71 crop year. The grain sale- lo China an- nounced last month helped in the record movement of grain said Otto Lang, minister re- sponsible for the Canadian Wheat Board. Addressing the second an- nual convention of the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association, Mr. Lang said Canada could start to go after feed grain markets DOW. He said Canada can enter the feed grain market but will have to do so at competitive prices. There is no alternative to tbo existing pricing situation. Mr. Lang implied that Can eda should start to develop and hold cusomters in the feed grain market, but warned the 650 members and guests that Canada will need greater quan- tities of feed grain. "We are looking in the near future to a one billion bushel grain export he said. In an ensuing question pe- riod, Mr. Lang said it was the feeling of the CWB that long- term contracts would be bene- ficial to the Canadian situation because it would assure mar- kets for longer periods.

SONY LLOYDS DUAL NORESCO He said nil the contracts ligned with the Chinese gov- ernment have been for one year terms. Recognition of Chi. na many yeais ago by the CWB and more recently by the Canadian government was sited as having had "a lot to do with trade developments." On the question of the na- tional farm products marketing bill C-176 Mr. Lang said the only products definitely not in- cluded in the legislation are the grains under the jurisdic- tion of the CWB and those un- der the JursidieHon of the dairy commission. He said if other commodities wish to form marketing agen- cies It will be a clear choice of the producers of each com- modity. He told a Saskatchewan farmer that the reason cash crops are charged four times more for freight is that they are not included in the Crews- nest rates structure establishet in the 1950s. He said the CWB borrows large amounts of money to buy grain, and stores it until it can be sold in tin export market. Mr. Lang could not tell the convention why the price for rapeseed has increased while the price to producers has de- creased. He said there have been three million bushels more rapes moved this crop year than last year, but the price differential between rapeseed and soybeans remains unsually high. He suggested (bat importers have to be convinced to switch to rapeseed when the price fac- tor is advantageous. Mr. Lang told Alberta's direc- tor tD the convention, Orville Heber of Burdett, that the use of grain alcohol in automobile fuel had been discussed and studied but at present was not feasible. Mr. Lang told the convention that the Palliser Wheat Grow- ers' Association was doing a commendable job for UK wheat producers.

Senator Buckwold said it was his opinion that livestock should have been omitted from the legislation from the begin- ning. He was referring to opposition by cattlemen, calling for the omission of cattle, calves, beef and veal from the legislation. "I am satisfied that Hie in- terest of the livestock pro- ducers are well looked he said in an interview. "Under a late amendment, no marketing boards for any commodity groups can be set up without a plebiscite among those involved. Senator Buckwold, who was named to the upper house in November 1971, said Mr. Olson was the power behind the bill. He had the endorsement of most of the responsible farm organizations, said Senator Buckwold. REGINA (Staff) A grat Ifying year for grain pro- ducers, with many ups an< some downs, pretty well de- scribes 1971, said Walter Nel son, president of the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association. Addressing the second i nual association convention Friday, Mr. Nelson said the organization was born out of producers' discon tentment with the market sit uation for grain, particularly wheat. He pointed to several occur ances in 1971, some of which helped the industry, including quota system that calls for the kind and grade of grain the buyer wants in order to til a sale rather than an annei: implementation of protein grading system; reduction of 120 million bushels of wheat In the ban dung system which represent ed a saving of per day in storage and interest charges for the farmer; release of the Menzles grain marketing review com mittee report, which showed inadequacies in Canada's grain marketing performance.
