Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta Feed grains policy may lose sales WINNIPEG (CP) - The bead of the Canadian Grain Commission predicted Tuesday the Canadian Wheat Board will lose most of its market in feed grains as a result of the federal government’s new feed grains policy. Chief commissioner H. D. Pound said the new policy won’t likely mean as big a loss of power for the wheat board as some people claim but there is no questitxi the board could lose most of its 100 million bushel market. “This will be replaced by private trades,” Mr. Pound said. “While the government is not introducing the policy for this to occur, it has its priority to treat all farmers in Canada equally.” Mr. Pound said the policy will give prairie farmers a much stronger off-board market due to competition, while still ensuring them the right to deliver all their grain to the wheat board if they so desire. Contracts for natural gas offered VANCOUVER (CP) - The British Columbia Petroleum Corp. is offering new contracts to B.C.’s 70 natural gas producers that will add an estimated $41 million to their revenues this year and give them an average price Increase of 82 per cent. The price schedule was mailed to the producers Tuesday night. Most of the mail was addressed to Calgary, where oil companies maintam their Canadian exploration offices. "We have accepted the premise of the industry that a good wellhead price would attract exploration and result in iievelopment of our reserves,” corporation chairman James Rhodes said Tuesday in an interview. He said :.the. new wholesale prices — 6i cents a thousand cubic feet at the U.S. border, 58 cents to B.C. Hydro and somewhat less to Inland Natural Gas and Pacific Northern Gas — would yield increased gross revenue in 1974 of about $100 million. Of this, about $41 million would go to producers, he said.

CHICAGO lAp) — The strong demand for commodity futures tapered off Tuesday on major United States exchanges and prices generally trended lower. Profit-taking was a rnajor factor In most sales although some selling appeared to have been linked lo concern about petroleum shortages and weakness of the British pound. World sugar futures again pushed to limits for one session, the ihird day in succession, but silver, copper, cocoa, wool and coffee futures were sharply lower. On the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, pork bellies chalked up impressive gams. Live cattle and hogs were mixed. Board of trade commodities were generally weak. Soybeans and wheat closed sharply lower, while corn and oats were mixed. Soybean meal and oil also were lower. Higlier cash prices figured in buying of pork-tielly futures along with a lack of hedging pressure. Live callle and hog futures reacted to marketings, the wealher and some -second thoughts about an anticipated United Stales callle-on-feed report.
