Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Tuesday, July 10, 197J- Ric SWIHART Grains council aim off The Canada Grains Council has begun telling fair goers in Western Canada how prairie grain moves from the farm to the market place. Alberta fairs in Vermilion and Vegreville only will be graced with the van which bouses an audio visual show telling of the movement of a billion bushels of grain through the handling system. Producers will also see a map of the grain transporta- tion system in their area. Growers will have the chance to discuss transportation ques- tions with the grains council staff. Great grain growing cen- tres like Estevan, Yorkton, M e 1 f o r t, Lloydminster and North Battleford in Saskatche- wan and Brandon, Carmen and Portage La Prairie in Manitoba will be visited. With the pending shift of em- phasis in the grain handling system in 1975 with the aband- onment of thousands of mites of rail road track and hundreds of country elevators, the Ma- grath district has been the only real voice in the wilderness questioning the move. It really is too bad some gov- ernment agency couldn't sit down with such a van and ten the good people of Magrath and district that they really don't have to worry afaou the rami- fications of grain handling cen- tralization. Maybe if government told the worried people of Magrath and district all the facts about the grain handling system, in- cluding the map of the system throughout the Magrath dis- trict, more understanding of the Save Plenty Toyota Travel is Having a THESE ARE ALL EXECUTIVE DRIVEN DEMONSTRATORS AND ARE IN BRAND NEW CONDITION BOB BARBER 1973 TOYOTA MARK I! 2-OOOR HARDTOP, 6 cylinder engine, power front disc brakes, power steering, radio, reclining front bucket teats, electric rear win- dow defogger, plus many more standard Toyota features.

Hie new protection takes the form of a neck collar made of leather and covered with sheep skin. When the coyote attacks, always in the neck-re- gion, a bite would release the repellant inside the neck collar. The neck collar would be a hazard to only the killer coy- otes and the chemical in the collar would become exposed to the environment only when the sheep are attacked. It would, however, not pre- vent dogs from hindering flocks since they mainly attack the hindquarters of the sheep. The collars is being tested in the Cardston district, the largest sheep production area in Western Canada. The collar will not be distri- buted to farmers until all tests have been completed and it has been proved effective....... And speaking of sheep, hav- ing just returned from a trip to Ireland, the woolies were really out in full force. And most of them were running around on the road. They 'use the free range system in Ireland and sheep are bog to bog in most places. Little wonder they use sheep dogs all the time. This little fellow is a truly incredible animal. At a signal, the dog will roam through- out the bog pasture and return every sheep owned by the her- der. If a stray happens to wan- der into the flock, the dog can tell and in a matter of minutes cut the stranger out leaving only "his" animals. Another aspect of agriculture in Ireland was the abundance of dairy type cattle. Very few beef cattle were which could account foe the higher price of beef. But the dairy industry was flourishing in most bigger places. The deliveries were made in electric trucks or flat- deck trucks. In rural Ireland, the old timers rode a two- wheeled trailer pulled by horse or donkey. On the cart were two or three milk cans and a lad- die. Whenever a person wanted milk, he could wait at the road- side with a pitcher and have the fresh daily milk poured from the cans. Jock, that canine companion of this reporter for 16 years this month, had only one run-in with sheep. He was chasing sheep in a pack near Fort Macleod and as close as we can ascer- tain, the sbeepberder took a pot shot at Jock, grazing one ear. The scar of the battle stin is in evidence but the threat of death didn't stop the old pup from accepting life-giving lamb meat from Miss Jeanette OgO- ve-Wills last year when he was lost in a swamp for more than a day. Now his teeth are in such poor condition that unless -we can a set of fasties in, he wffl ;
