Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta O THE LETHBRIDGE HESALD TuMcfay, July It, 1972 y, July 11, 1977 THE LETV3RIDGE HERALD 9 PENS OF FIVE WINNERS The Barons 4-H Beef Club swept Ihe top honors at the an- ual pens of five show ol the Lethbridge public stockyards recenlly. Held prior to the an- nual 4-H show and sale loday and Wednesday in conjunction with Whoop-Up Days cele- bralions, ihe lop award went lo Ross Charles-vorlh, lop. Club mate Hal Crow won Ihe re- tcrve grand, champion award. There were 13 enlries from f've clubs in southern Alberta, -Ed Finlay Photo Five appointed to CWB committee Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the Canadian wheat board, has made five appoint- ments to the advisory commit- tee lo Ihe wheat board, bring- ing commitlee strength up to the maximum of eleven as al- lowed by the Canadian Wlieat Board Act. The new appoinlees arc: Dob- son Lea, of Unifarm in Alber- ta; Sam 'G. Mitchell of Daw- son Creek, B.C.; Ivan Mac- Millan of Craik, Saskatchewan, (Mr. MacMiUan is a director of the Palliscr Wheat Growers' Mrs. E. C. Hartl of Lcroy, Sask.; nnd Lome Parker, who is associaled with the Manitoba Faim Bureau, Ihe Canadian Federation of Agri- culture and the Canada Grains Council. Continuing members of the committee are its chairman, Gordon Harrold, president of Alberta Wheat Pool; Ted Turn- er and Harold Sneatli, presi- dents of the Saskatchewan and Manitoba Wheat Pools, respec- tively; Mac Runciman, presi- dent of United Grain Growers, Roy Atkinson, president of the Notional Farmers Union and John Stevens, of U.G.G. in Al- bcrla. The Canadian Wheal Board Act stales lhal advisory coin- millce members may be ap- pointed by the Governor in Council during pleasure, and that at least six members of the Committee shall represent grain producers. No criteria or qualifications for appointment arc listed in the Act. However, farmers will be concerned lhat all appoin- tees are knowledgeable and sympathetic to the wheat board system of orderly marketing. The Canadian wheat board has, at limes, come under se- vere criticism from a number of producer and outside organi- zations, not all of which criti- cism would appear to have been justified. It is to be sin- cerely hoped that new appoin- lees of the advisory committee to Ihe Canadian whcnl board will provide added contribu- tions to the undcrsUriuing and support for the beard by grain producers and their urban neighbors in Western Canada, and will add to the effective- ness of the Canadian wheat board as an organization dedi- cated to the sale of maximum volumes of prairie grain at op- timum prices. Book for mosquito control A Guide for the Control of Mosquitoes in Alberta Munici- palities, Parks, Camps and He- sorts is designed to help organ- izations plan Iheir mosquilo conlrol campaigns in accord- dance with prescribed princi- ples. It discusses Ihe main slops in a successful campaign, conlrol of mosquilo larvae, control ot adult mosquilos, personal pro- tection, and hazards. It also contains two tables outlining equipment, Insecticides and formulations recommended for controlling mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes. It can be obtained from the publications office of the Alber- ta department of agriculture, Edmonton. Hay drying tower boon to farm and ranch Western Canada's first h'ay drying tower lias been develop- ed and pei-fected at the Mel- lort, Saskatchewan Research Station and is being hailed as a boon to the farm and ranch community. The tower is an experimen- tal model, but it lias proven it- self so well that it's ready Tor an-farm service less than three years aflcr the idea first reach- ed the Mclfort station. "We picked up the idea from a European agricultural maga- said Dr. Stan Beacom, station director. "Engineering Research Ser- vices in Ottawa took up our suggestion and by July of last year they had a tower con- structed at the tlalion, ready for testing." The tower has a 25-foot dia- meter circular roof, cone- shaped similar to the roof of a metal granary. The roof is sus- pended between three upright metal beams bolted to concrete footings. It can be raised or lowered along the 45 foot high beams by three winches. Normal chopped forage Is blown into the tower through the peak of the roof and spread to the outside of the tower hy a revolving double auger sup- ported just beneath the roof. A 4.5-foot diameter plug or "bung" hangs from the roof down the centre 01 the slack. As tire hay is blown in and spread, the bung prevents it from stacking in the centre. When the roof is raised, a cen- tral vertical duct is left in the stack as the bung lifts with the roof. A six-foot metal and woven wire "s k i r t" attached lo the roof gives an initial outer wall to the tower lo hold in the hay. However, as the hay builds up and the roof is raised, the skirt lifts with it, leaving the outer edges of the hay exposed. The wall of the stack remains verti- cal. At ground level, a plywood duct leads from the outside of the stack to the central duct. An oil-fired dryer is attached to the plywood duct and the warm air is forced into the centre of the stack, up the duct left by the bung until it hits the bung itself, and then is forced outward through the hay carrying the moisture with it. "There's nothing unique about the parts; they're simply put together in a unique com- said Dr. Beacom. "As the hay dries, you can actually see the moisture drip- ping from the outside of the tower. When the dripping stops, you know the hay is Dr. Beacom said. To remove the hay from the tower, the bung is taken from the top of the central duct, the double auger under the root re- versed, and the hay moves into the centre of Ihe tower to drop down the duct. A conveyer through the bottom plywood duct catches the hay and moves it out. "A second conveyer can lift the hay into wagons or portable feeders, but we think Hie best arrangement is to take it di- rectly into a grinder-mixer a feeding bunk right at the tow- said Dr. Beacom. "Anything that avoids labor and handling makes for a more economical operation. "We've estimated a cost of about not including the cost of the dryer but including a reasonable labor charge which the farmer would save by building it himself. "Costs could be cut some- what, but we're not counting on that until the engineers take a careful look at some minor details." During the past summer, crested whcatgrass, brome- alfalfa and sweetclovcr were dried in layers in the tower. Moisture into the tow- er ranged from very low up lo 50 per cent. Abcut 00 tons "wet" forage dried. "You'd expect difficulty in obtaining uniform drying with that kind of a Dr. Beacom said. "But the results were excel- lent." Another t e s t is planned for this summer and there are a number of farmers who expect to return to follow up their in- terest in the new tower. Al- though the scientists plan a lit- tle more research on things like the suspended auger system and the feed value of the dried hay, the tower is virtually 'reEdy to go.' The dried hay from the tow- er was fed to young slccrs and sheep in the winler of 1971-72 and was highly palatable. "This was undoubtedly due lo Ihe re- lenlion of most of the leaf ma- terial during harvesting and the lack cf "weathering" dur- ing the curing Dr. Beacom said. "We'll have lo show farmers this will pay in terms of their When In Lethbridge DINE AT TOM'S HOUSE OF PIZZA TWO LOCATIONS TO SERVE YOU 1217 3rd Ave. S.
