Lethbridee. The local growers called for faster receiving facilities at the Taber factory through better maintenance to reduce down-time of the sis pliers here and through upgrading of the receiving equipment. Also found desirable is a filer for the Vauxhall Big Bend area, a repeated resolu- tion, to reduce the trucking haul to the factory receiving station. Growers also want the load- ing station at Cranford re- tair.ed. They want to be kept open during the same hours and period of harvest as the Taber receiving station. Maintaining there is a loss in tonnage by computer con- version of pounds to tons be- fore deducting tare, growers approved a resolution re- questing that tare be deduct- ed before conversion of weight. Growers called for better control of digging after frosts, rnanv of their number disre- garding the specified waiting period required for frost to leave the crowns oi the roots. -Miscellaneous resohi lions concerned a desire for night shopping a; Tabar on Satur- days, particularly during day- light saving time.

Because of the lower sugar content of the IS71 beet crop, to'-al receipts per ton are S2.31 lower than for the previous car. say; centra] board di- rector Burns Wood. Reports from last year's op- eraticn indicated a sugar pro- duction of 218 pour.ds per ton as compared with 2S5 for the .Manitoba factory where har- vest aid growing conditions vcre more conducive to high production of sugar.
