Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, January 8, 1975 10-cow pasture can feed 30 through better management Alberta cattlemen can increase range grass supplies by three times through better pasture' management techni- ques, says Doug Minion, range management specialist with the Alberta department of agriculture in Lethbridge. Dr. Minion says since 1966 Alberta's beef cow numbers have increased 43 per cent without a similar increase in range and pasture acreage or carrying capacity. And with one of the driest' periods ,111 Southern Alberta history .evident during the past four years, cattle numbers have continued to increase at the rate of 26 per cent while grass supplies have dwindled. Adding to the grass woes in Southern Alberta has been the dramatic shift from pasture to mixed and dryland farming SUPER SPECIAL! 5-YEAR LIGHT BULBS Popular Sizes V2 Mfg. Sugg. Retail PRICE! Call Hardware 327-576? DOWNTOWN practices to take advantage of record-high grain prices. Dr. Minion says ranchers have been able to increase grass yields by three times by replacing native grasses with new varieties. Where it took three acres per cow per month to keep a cow, with new grasses, it only takes one acre per cow per month. But these results won't happen without proper plan- ning, he said. The two main sources of land to seed with tame grass varieties are stubble fields, summerfallow and existing prairie. ff using stubble land, land which grew a cereal crop the previous year or summer- fallow, grass should be seeded after Oct. 15. The seed lies dormant until early the following year and usually germinates before the land could normally be work- ed with implements. If prairie land is to be used, the land should be broken and summerfallowed in June after using the land as grazing dur- ing the spring. If the area is in the brown soil zone east and southeast of Lethbridge, crested wheat grass or Russian wild rye and alfalfa should be used. If the area is in dark brown soil zone west of Lethbridge to FOX DENTURE CLINIC ESI. 1922 PHONE 327-6565 E. S. P. FOX, C.D.M. FOX LETHBRIDGE DENTAL LAB 204 MEDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

Regardless of the soil, should weeds be a problem a companion crop such as fall rye should be seeded with the grass mixture. The companion crop serves three purposes: it competes with weeds to allow the grass to become established, it helps the grass flow through the drill for better seed dis- tribution and it provides spr- ing grazing while the grass crop 'is getting established. Seeding the companion crop should be set at 15 to 20 pounds per acre for dry areas and not more than 30 pounds per acre for moist areas. Once the livestock have eaten the companion crop they will start to eat the new grass. When the animals begin to graze the tips of the brome grass, orchard grass or crested wheat grass or the top leaves of the alfalfa, they should be removed to other pasture. Under normal conditions, the new grass 'crop will be ready to graze on a regular basis in the spring of the year following seeding. If the grass crop is to be seeded on summerfallow in the spring rather than after Oct. 15 in the previous fall, it is best to kill at least one crop of weeds first, said Dr. Minion. This can be done by seeding the companion crop first at half or less the normal seeding rate. This will reduce the competition of the crop and weeds. The mixed tame grasses and alfalfa should then be seeded at right angles to the companion crop. This will get most of the forage seeds out of the companion crop row and reduce in-row competition from the vigorous grain seedling. Planting the companion crop first also helps to com- pact the soil :and make a firmer seedbed for the grass and alfalfa seeds. More phones Workmen from Boychuk Construction Ltd. of Saskatoon are on schedule as they add two floors to the Alberta Government Telephones building.

Hi-Liters' auditions continue Auditions are still being taken for 20 female singers for the Hi-Liters 21, a semi professional troupe scheduled to tour Canada this summer. A spokesman for the Lethbridge based group said nine girls have been chosen to sing for the Hi-Liters, but there stili could be changes made. "VVe advertised for 20 female singers so we would get about the spokesman said. The troupe, which will include 11 voices accompanied by a 10-picce band, is scheduled to begin its Canadian tour sometime in June. The tour will begin in Eastern Canada, performing at major centres through to the West Coast and then "secondary cities" travelling east again. The music will include Basie, Bacharach and Bach. Art show, concert set Saturday Music and art will be combined at the Lethbridge Public Library Saturday with an exhibition of Lethbridge water color works and a recorder performance. The water color exhibit, is under the direction of University of Lethbridge art department staff member Pauline McGeorge.

Council considers homes, signs FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Town council considered construction and stop signs' during a meeting Monday night. Council granted a six- months extension to Al Mo's Construction (Kiffiak brothers) to allow later construction of houses on lots three, four and 'five on the south side of 15th St. The secretary noted an agreement of sale document from the town is not sufficient proof of land sales that mortgage com- panies will lend mortgage money to property-buyers. Mortgage firms now want to see the title, he said. Coun. Moses will discuss "no parking" signs further with the RCMP detachment here. Council delayed erection of more signs at present because of the expense involv- ed and the fact that the RCMP probably won't be policing parking violators here after July, 1976, when the present' contract expires. Then, said Mayor Edgar, the town will possibly hire its own constable to police parking infractions. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC SclwirtzBlli2225ljiSt.S.
