IETHBKIDGI, AlUKTA SEE US FOR ALL YOUR OPTICAL NEEDS Further interest expressed in hog slaughtering plant By RIC SWIHART Staff Wr'ter TABER About 150 hog feed grain producers signifiei interest in negotiating forwarc contracts to supply raw maler ials for the proposed million hog slaughtering and processing plant for southern Alberta. Fernando E. Ricafort, direc- tor and technical manager foi North American Integrate Food Processing Co. Ltd., met with 250 interested people here to determine the possibility of entering long term contracts in order to get the capacity plant in operat i o n soon. In what seemed a watered down meeting compared with the session in Burdett the pre- vious .day, Mr. Hicafort said be has asked John Calpas, re- giona] district agriculturist, Gordon Ross, regional livestock supervisor, Dr. Syd Slen, head of the animal science section of the Letbbridge Research Sta- (ion and Federal Agriculture Minister Bud Olson's office for guidance for the pricing sched- ule for the hogs. He said he asked for gui- dance for a price which will be acceptable to hog producers and the company. One farmer asked Mr. Rica- fort what 75-cent per bushel barley and 25-cent per pound live weight pork would do with- in the proposed plant. He said the company would make money at those figures. Ken Schultz of Cardston ask- ed for more contract informa- tion and some hint of the price which could be expected. Officials of the company have stated outside the public meet- ing that with an invest- ment in equipment and stock, a farmer with a 100-sow oper- ation selling the hogs for a hundredweight would realize per month net profit with per month extra to pay hired help. ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwartz Bldg. 222 5lh St. S. Phone 321.4095 Mr. Ricafort told another questioner that Sie uiarkci for the exported processed pork would be southeast Asia. He said fresh, frozen anc canned pork would be process ed for the market. There wl be a top kill of hogs per year. The company, which was or iginated in Saskatoon but was moved to southern Alberta by economic factors, will have t use the contract method o! supply in order to assure ade- quate stocks for processing. Mr. Ricafort said the feed grain question was one of the major reasons for the com pany requiring contracts. He said the proper feed must be given the nogs to get the proper type of bog demanded by the export market. He told another farmer tha any producer with a feed mil in his present hog operation would be given the right ma teiials and formulas to mix his own feed using his own grain 'ng supervision from the company. He said supervision will be offered at all stages of the growth cf the animal. Premium prices will be paid for all bogs which reach the minimum Stan dard. All others will be bought by the company, but not premium prices. Nicht Burns sold out wi9 'A Nicbt wl' Burns" wfl! be celebrated tonight beginning a< 7 p.m. in the Legion Memorial pall.

Corney Freisen of Vauxh a 1 suggested a longer contrac than five years, as suggestcc by the company, at a set price would be better. Mr. Ricafort said it would to his advantage if the contracts were longer. He said the contracts would likely be renewed about two years before the expiry date. In response to a question by Arnold Odland of Taber, Mr Ricafort said the company was 100 per cent Canadian owned used 100 per cent Canadian raw materials and was 100 per een Canadian export. He told another farmer tha during the last two months o the feeding program, speda flavor inducing additives wil be added. Apparently (no other packing plant will accept the hogs with this additive. The ad ditive will not increase me cos of the feed. He told another farmer tha the most money be could ge from the federal governmen incentive program for jobs cre- ated was each. Mr. Ricafort said it would not be likely "that the full incen live would be paid for the jobs He could not determine how much incentive money he could expect from the government.
