Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Tuttdty, January Ric Swihart Farm web tightens Bright lights, respect from urban and foreign people, pride in increased production and higher returns from that produc- tion boost have been forecast for 1975 by the Canada department of agriculture. "Canada's agriculture industry is in a pretty healthy state says the department, in an obvious attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of millions of Canadian consumers who have just begun to realize that maybe farmers and ranchers don't have a gold mine in the back 40. This talk will also help to appease the scores of nations throughout the world which depend on Canadian farmers and ranchers to supply the bulk of their food. But there is one negative aspect to the outlook for Canadian agriculture in 1975. Farmers and ranchers simply will not make as much real income as in 1974, even though their cash flow through increased gross income is expected to increase sub- stantially in 1975. Most non farm residents will likely skim over this minute statistic prepared by the Canada department of agriculture, pouring over instead the glowing reports of increas- ed production and expand- ed trade prospects before forming their opinions of the farm situation. But you can believe all farmers who have been through years of non farm types trying to tell them how to run their business SMITH'S COLOR TV APPLIANCES LTD.

AUCTIONEERS: FRED BUR10N Lie No 00361 3 LES HANDLEY R Lie. No. 010120 OGER HANDLEY Lie. No. 010121 will recognize this dire prediction in both the printed form now and when accounts are settled at the end of the year. How many other sectors of this fine land face the prospects of working for a year knowing all the "ex- perts" are predicting lower incomes for it? You can bet your bottom dollar there isn't one. The trouble facing farmers is they are basically like Missouri Mules. They believe in free enterprise from the word go and they don't want Straw rations can kill EDMONTON (ACN) Alberta agriculture has received a number of reports of cows on high straw rations dying from impaction. The reason for the im- paction is that the straw, being very low in digestible protein, stays in the animal's system too long, according to Jerome Mar- tin, the department's animal nutritionist. During cold weather t cows eat more straw usual to keep warm, the result that the amount of straw in the system can build up until it causes severe impaction. At this point there is lit- tle that can be done to save the cow. The key to the problem, Mr. Martin says, is to pre- vent its occurrence by feeding a balanced ration to make up the protein deficiency. There are two alternatives to feed grain or grain plus a pro- tein supplement with the straw or to feed a high pro- tein legume hay. When straw is being fed free choice, rations might be eight pounds of grain or five pounds of grain plus one pound of a 32 per cent protein supplement per head per day. If farmers do not want to feed grain, an alternative would be feeding 50 per cent straw and 50 per cent of a high protein legume hay. Mr. Martin stresses that regardless of feed grain or hay with the straw, farmers should always supplement the ration with a vitamin A and minerals and also make sure the cat- tle have plenty of water. help, believing they can make a go of life from the land on their own. Well this was true when the majority of the rest of society basically followed the same pattern. But the rest of society seems to have turned into a gimme gimme tirade of back stabbing organized baboons who want the rest of the world to provide a living for them'. Farmers are simply caught in the tight web. And the web is going to get tighter as more and more people find ways to make more and more money for doing less and less work. But the farmer will be excluded because he can't demand more money for his product on the supply demand scheme this international industry works on in the lace of political interven- tion around the world. The day of reckoning is nearing. The oil producing powers and the manufac- turing export nations had better make hay while the sun shines because that sun is going to dim soon unless the food production in- dustry throughout the world receives some long overdue attention. One can get warm with oil, can get places fast with cars, can enjoy leisure time with labor saving devices and the list goes on but these all become secon- dary without food. I believe the farmers will have the last laugh when the starving masses are pounding at their doors for food. It is just too "bad farmers' opinions of the rest of society couldn't be tempered with some fair play before the day of reckoning. It just might make that farmer down the road loosen up a bit with the food strings. The Alberta Land Use Forum will hold a public hearing in Lethbridge Ex- hibition Pavilion Jan. 30 starting at 10 a.m. This all day experience of people from the area ex- pressing their views on how this great land should be used will provide a chance to see some true colors. People who talk up a good humanistic approach to life will be in there slugging to make sure that their little corner of the world isn't changed. Regardless of what peo- ple feel, the public hearing should be on everyone's list to attend. You don't have to participate if you don't want. But you will be listened to and your questions will be answered if possible. It is perhaps the best form of democratic par- ticipation Canadians have going for them a chance to have a direct input to government policy and legislation to mold that legislation to the needs of the people.
