-SaiufJoy, June 6, 1970 THE IEIHDRIDCE HCRAI.D 3 Nears Completion MAGKATIf (HNS) Grain seeding in the Magralh district is 85 per cent completed. Ccol weather in May delayed farm- ing as wild oats grows belter ;it that particular time. One inch of rain in Ihe final week in May assisted the seed bed but record temperatures in the Sill's have depleted much of the top rroislure. Generally there lias been lit- tle reduction in grain acreage. Fall wheat had already been sown when the wheat reduction plan was announced in Ottawa. Farmers who felt it tea dry to plant last fall were auto- matically in planted spring hut most have wheat. T h e y don't feel there is enough of a wheat surplus and don't like the idea of empty bins in case of natural catastrophes. B i g acreage farmers will benefit most from the govern- ment plan. Some had already reduced wheat acreage in favor cf barley and other crops the past two years so there is Ml a great change in seeding this year. Seed cleaning plants have had as busy or busier trade this season. Farmers do not favor the idea cf little production when they recall dry years with low yields. Many feel just one drought would be enough to reduce any surplus. h-s. Strang Of Magrath MAGRATH (HNS) Mrs. Irene Strang is proof activity keeps one young and healthy.
