Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE LETHBRIDGE, January Suffield denial fleeces sheepmen An arrangement to allow Suffield area ranchers use of acres of range pasture on the Defence, Research Establishment this year still has Alberta sheepmen out in the cold. Tom Simpson of Tilley, chairman of the Brooks Sheepmen's Co-operative Ltd., told The Herald in a telephone interview last week a second brief from the co operative was sent Skid-steer Loader That "Puts It All Together" When ihe fytelroe Bobcat was matched In performance tests against thirteen other skid-steer loader makes, here's what happened: Bobcat led Ihe field, wilh clear superiorly i'rt rim pull, cycle time, practical load capacity, safely and mobility under full load.

RENTALS 1410-2ndAve. South Phone 327-2822 to the federal defence minister in December but nothing official has been received. The eo operative wants to obtain grazing rights on the military range to supplement home pastures. The only com- munity type pasture available to sheepmen from Southern Alberta now is near Rimby, north of Red Deer but high trucking costs make use unfeasible. Mr. Simpson said plans for the operation of a farmer owned sheep slaughtering plant at In- nisfail has generated added interest in sheep produc- tion in Southern Alberta, adding to the importance of obtaining local grazing rights. Defence Minister James Richardson announced Jan. 15 that ranchers in the Suffield area could use acres of the military range. About cattle will be involved. Mr. Richardson has not acknowledged the pleas from the sheepmen, said 'Mr: Simpson. Both Progressive Conservative MPs from the area, Jack Horner and Bert Hargrave, have given their okay to the sheepmen's proposal. Mr. Simpson said the sheepmen are not interested in the portion of the military range to be used by cattlemen although the Canadian Cattlemen's Association has indicated it feels sheep and cattle can be grazed together. Mr. Simpson said the eastern block of the range allocated to cattlemen is too isolated to sheep. The range must be easily watched to protect the sheep from predators. The land in the military range is part of the Palliser Triangle. The grazing land in this region, because of a low amount of moisture, supplies little grass. It takes about 50 acres of land to graze one cow. Seven sheep can be graz- ed on the land used by one cow, said Mr. Simpson. Under this condition, the co operative would re- quire acres to graze the sheep one herdsman could handle. "this would be a good start this said Mr. Simpson. "There would be no problem getting that many sheep just from the Brooks area."

Box 1103, Lethbridge, Alberta, T1J 4A2 Phone (402) 329-3212 Association, which backed the first brief submitted to government from the Brooks co. operative, is supporting the co operative again in its attempt to secure grazing rights. Betty Cyr of Pincher Creek, chairman of the sheepmen's group, said this morning all the sheepmen in the Pincher Creek area run their animals on private grazing land which is in short supply. She said six producers she knows of would double their flocks as soon as possible if they could ob- tain a community pasture in the area. As a member of the board of directors for the Alberta Sheep Processors plant in Innisfail also, Mrs. Cyr said the prospective excellent market oppor- tunities provided by the slaughter plant has spurred interest in the production of sheep but lack of suitable grazing property is hindering expansion in Southern Alberta.
