Cattle die from too much urea Sloppy management and failure by producers to read directions has resulted in the death of several cattle in the Vulcan district, an area veterinarian said Tuesday. The veterinarian told The Herald that in some isolated cases cattle had died after be- ing given a free choice at a urea supplement. Urea is a form of protein supplement that is added to Lion's club to present ,100 Local researchers study blackfly with fatal bite WE CUT KEYS WHILE YOU WAIT AND WATCH DOWNTOWN Three scientists from the Lethbridge Research Station are studying an insect pest with a bite so severe that cat- tle can die from it M.

The locale the Athabasca River, in the Athabasca Coun- ty of Northern Alberta, an area where in 1972, 14 cattle died because of blackfly bites. Dr. Depner has worked from a boat on the Athabasca River, apparently the only breeding grounds of the major pest species of blackfly in the county. "Livestock production in the county could double were it not for says Dr. Khan. Purpose of Dr. Depner's work is to identify the exact breeding places of the blackfly Adult flies are SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENTBATHROOMS REMODELLING 321-21 caught about two inches above the surface of the water dur- ing high speed sweeps of the river, with larvae collected on plastic cones anchored to the river bottom. If the breeding places can be located, pesticides could be restricted to areas that need them. Mr. Shemanchuk's part of the project is surveying the ground blackfly populations which will give a base against which to compare the effec- tiveness of control measures and pinpoint problem areas. Problem areas where out- breaks will occur would be predicted by these ground sur- veys through measuring the distance from the river to areas where the cattle are bitten. By studying the habits of blackflies and their victims, control methods would be developed. Dr. Khan is running an ex- periment with Charolais, Angus and Hereford breeds of cattle to see if there is a basis for breeding programs to develop more tolerant cattle.

The veterinarian said in all cases he diagnosed the cattle had been allowed to eat all the urea they wanted. "They (producers) didn't read the he said. "And right on the label is a warning 'Do not feed free choice'." The urea supplement used in the cases where cattle died was designed for feedlot situations where the amount can be controlled accurately. It isn't the type that can be used for free-ranging animals. The veterinarian advises all cattlemen to have their feeds, especially feed grains, tested for protein levels before buy- ing expensive protein supplements. He said tests on several feed grains this year showed ade- quate amounts of protein already in the grain. Terry Bracken, manager of National Feed and Livestock in Lethbridge, said reading instructions is the big thing in any livestock feeds. His firm, which is one of the largest users of urea in Alberta, has several livestock rations which incorporate different forms of urea. "Urea is dangerous if it isn't used he said. "But it is the most economic form of protein." Crash victim's service today A memorial service was to be held today for a former Lethbridge man killed in a plane crash in northeastern Saskatchewan Dec. 12.

Ski area road work set PINCHER CREEK (HNS) Department of highways representatives told a meeting of the Municipal District of Pincher Creek Tuesday the West Castle Road is to be oiled and gravelled from the Beaver Mines junc- tion to the West Castle ski slopes. The road will also be relocated two miles around a hill known as the ranger sta- tion hill which has been the scene of some bad winter driv- ing bottlenecks. Other sections of the road will be straightened and raised. Since the work is being done for the 1975 Winter Games, the meeting was told, the department of highways will pay for the oil and gravel work on the portion of the road in the municipal district. It will also maintain the road until after the Winter Games when responsibility for its maintenance will revert to the municipal dis- trict. The municipal district coun- cil was also told the highways department will build two miles of secondary road from Burmis south of Highway 3 to Lee Lake at no cost to the municipal district. Since the rest of this road which leads to Beaver Mines is up to standard, this will be another route to West Castle A contract for the road from Pincher Creek to the Beaver Mines was let last fall to the Peter Kewette Co. and will be paved this year. Work on about 15 miles of the road from the junction to West Castle will be done this summer starting as early as March if possible, the highways department representatives said. In other business at its meeting Tuesday, the council gave consideration to enlarg- ing the landing strip at Pincher Creek in time for the winter Games.
