Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IEIHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, July 31, 1770 Enjoy summer's finest.. AMONG THE FIRST To harvest winter wheat this season, is Frank Malek, north of Lethbridge. In this part- icular case, the vdriety is Yogi. Mr. Malek says yields are down drastically this year, (30 bushels per acre ibis year. compared to 60 bushels per acre last year.) due to poor germination and lack of moisture. The scene will be typical before (oo much longer. look By Steve Bareham JT LOOKS like livestock shows at summer fairs are on the way out at Letkbridge and other western centres. Discussions with government livestock officials in Ottawa, Edmonton and Lethbridge, have hinted at me possibility of a move away from the class competition shows, and into what many feel would be a more effective type of exhibit such as offered by the Southern Alberta Swine Council at Whoop-Up Days this year. Reasons for the syitch are sketchy, but it is felt by some in the livestock field, the show type of display is becsming too costly and in some cases is being abused as in a case where a class has only one entrant who of course takes all of the prizes because of lacking competition. It is also felt summer fair livestock shows no longer serve the purpose they were designed for, namely to improve the breed. Not many people go to livestock shows anymore with the Intent of buying the grand champion bull and female so they can start their own quality hybrid stock. Complicated progeny tests, and artificial insemination has made this unncessary and uneconomical. Emphasis now should be placed on product promotion, not specialized breed promotion, as new grading systems bear testimony to the need of good meat not good looks. After several recent news conversations with government and organization officials, I found an extra measure of humor in an article on the jargon of officialdom, which contained the following definitions.

Oil Products May Be Fed Volatile fatty acids, whic] are by-products of Alberta' growing petrochemical indus try, are being examined as pos sible sources of feed supple- ments for livestock, according to University of Alberta anima: researchers. Dr. B. A. Young, animal sci- ence department pointed oul that in the normal process oi digestion, ruminant animals convert feed into acetic, pro- piom'c and butyric acid in the approximate proportion of 40, 40 and 20 per cent respectively. Since animals derive 60 to 80 p.er cent of their energy from these acids, and since these acids are produced hi large quantities by the province's chemical industry, he and his fellow researchers are attempt- ing to learn if these acids can be used under practical feeding conditions: In other words, could industry-produced vola- tile fatty acids be utilized in swine rations or could they be substituted or used to supple- ment those acids which are produced in the rumen of sheep or cattle during the course of digestion. calves of all types will be feed- lot tested, and the culled ani- mals will be marketed as bulls. Cattlemen have been reluc- tant to retain calves as bulk because carcasses that show evidence of male characteris- tics have been downgraded, the dark-colored meat is discrim- inated against, and the fighting and riding habits of bulls fre- q u e n 11 y cause injury and weight loss. The key to a successful op- eration is to use cattle with a rapid growth rate. Rapid gams allow the animals to attain higher weights at an early stage of maturity without pro- ducing excessive fat. Carcasses with dark color can be eliminated by reducing pre-slaughter stress. The ob- jective should be to move the cattle from the feedlot to the slaughter floor quickly and with as little excitement as pos- sible. Riding and fighting can be educed by sorting cattle into groups according to size and by nitting the molested bulls in a ten by themselves. A demonstration of what can e achieved by feeding out ulls was indicated in a group f bulls fed at the Lethbridge lesearch Station. The 60 ani- lals, representing ten breeds, ncluded 39 two-breed and 19 hree-breed cross bulls. The ulls were 13 to 15 months of ge when slaughtered and their reights ranged from to 428 pounds. The animals raded as follows: Choice, 31; jood, 11; Standard, 13; Com- ercial 1, 3; and Utility 1, 2. one graded Bull. The bulls, d over a 224-day period, gain- d an average of 3 pounds per ay. They consumed an aver- ge of 5.7 pounds of feed per iund of gain (on a pelleted tion) and averaged over 13 uare inches of rib-eye area, ifty-two carcasses exhibited right color and eight medium lor. None of the meat was assified dark. Luscious fresh fruits. They help make the good ol' summertime so good. We bring them to you in great variety. All from select crops... at peak of flavor-goodness.
