Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JUNE [The Farmers' Corner Servant of Agriculture Lethbridge Experimental Station Despite advances in the proouc- tion of artificial fibers isrool, con- tinues to be iu a class by itself as a textile fiber. However, eompeK- tion is getting keener all the lime and wool producers coufmually must be for improvement of their product. The Lethbridge Experimental Station has been working on wool improvement for many vears. special emphasis be- ing given, to improvement through, breeding. The co-operation of me Rational Research Council. Ottawa, has made it possible to obtain some detailed data on factors affecting fleece quality bus this work had to be expanded and fcrougfii closer to the producers. Consequently a Hesearch Laboratory has been established at the Lethbridge Sta- tion. Tne immediate purpose of this laboratory is to provide detailed analysis irom fleeces in the experi- mental breeding projects under way la Western Canada. The thus obtained will provide a sounder basis for selecting breeding animals fO" improvemens of various charac- teristics of fleeces. Other phases of improvement also -Kill be un- dertaken by the laboratory as the work develops. The task of directing the Woo Laboratorv has been given to S tSid) B. Slen. B.A..

City. 1871 FITTING LETHBRIDGE EXPERIMENTAL FARM WEEKLY LETTER Station in Wisconsin peavine hay was compared to peavine silage as a feed for fattening lambs when fed with barlev. Both groups of lambs made the saree average daily gain. They found that if the silage is PEAVTXE HAY IS A VALUABLE FEED Until recent years all the farm- ers in Southern Alberta who grow canning peas have made silage of the vines directly they come from the viners. This has produced a very satisfactory type of feed for feedlot finishing of caKle and sheep. However, there is considerable wast- age and spoi'age when the vines are cured as silage. In recent years, mainly because of this large waste, manv farmers have expressed keen interest in obtaining information, on the feeding value of the peavines when made into hay. These farm- ers realize that even though more labor is required in putting up the vines as hay than as silage there Is less spoilage, the hay Js easier to transport and handle, and it does not present the same problems of feeding that silage does, especially curing cold weather. During the past winter, feeding experiments were carried out at the Lethbridge Experimental Station to determine the feeding value of pea- vine hav as compared to altalfa hay whea fed to fattening lambs and yearling steers. One group of steers and one group of lambs were fed peavine hay and grain, and a similar group of steers and lambs were fed alfalfa hay and grain. The group of steers fed peavine hay Tnade an average daily gain of 1.89 pounds, and the group fed alfalfa Jiav made an average daily gain "of "1.85 pounds. It took slightly fmore feed to put a pound of gain the peavine hay-fed group than on the alfalfa hay-fed group. Both groups of lambs made the same average daily gain, namely 0.30 pounds.- Similar to the results ob- tained with the steers it took slight- ly more feed to put on a pound of [gain when oeavine hay was fed i than when alfalfa hay was fed. The 1 chemical composition of the pea- vine hay and alfalfa hay fed in these exoeriments was determined. It was found that the peavine hay was as nch in protein, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin A as the alfalfa hay. Peavine hay has also been com- pared to alfalfa hay as a feed for fattening steers at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Washington. In their first experiment the group fed peavine hay and a grain mix- ture made almost identical gains the group fed the alfalfa hay and the grain mixture. Both groups required about the same amount of feed to put on 'a pound of gain. During their second experiment the group fed peavine hay made high- er gains and required less feed per pound of gain than the group fed alfalfa hajr. At the Agricultural Experiment worth 3550 per ton the hay is worth per ton. The Agricultural Experiment Station in Washington made stu- dies of the cosss involved in put- ting ira the peavines in the form of hay- Using a spreader similar to a manure spreader for spreading iie vines, and a side delivery rake and hand labor for putting up the hav the total cost was per ton of cured hay. This cost in- cluded labor at 75 cents per hour, fuel, repairs, depreciation, and in- :erest on the machinery. It would thus .appear, providing labor is available and weather con- ditions are suitable for hay mak- ing, that making hay of the vines is a sound practice. Of particular value were class demonstrations and dis- i plays of pupil work as a. device for in-service training. The work on lestips the diTJSion was reviewed and ap- proved by the principals. It was felt that the system of zesting pre- sented more values for guidance use than were at present beisg made use of. In conjunction with the record card system the results of educational and achievement tests give a rather complete picture of eacn individual student. The" principals carried out a round table discussion ol the administra- tion of the school by the principal- Some of the geneial conclusions arrived at were that il) the prin- cipal is resnonsible for the guidance of the relatively inexperienced teachers on his staff hi order to nip q-ouble in the bad; (2) prin- cipal should see to is that disci- pline is efficient The principals suggested a re- allocation of free supplies as a guide to the division in planning the dis- tribution of these for the fall term.

VISIT MILK RIVER. 1HLK Mr. and L- B- Thomson, superinten- dent of Swift Current Experi- mental Farm dropped in the other day and told us he thor- oughly agrees with our recent; statement that the cause of a good deal of our soil drifting is too high sueed of cultivation. Three and one-half miles per hour is the top limit, he said. He is also dead set against the use of rototillers which are gaining popularity in the east where their problem is not one of soil crif Sing but of water ero- sion. "We have the machines and the method now to stop soil drifting, but vre can't do'it if we drive the machines at a speed which lums the earth in- to a trawdery said Mr. Thomson. The fact that most of the soil drifting now comes in the spring during and after seeding indicates that high speed in spring cultivation and seeding is ths cause of most of our trouble. We do a good job up to that time. A word to the wise! Mrs. C. B. Cobb of Kalispell and Mr. and Mrs. IPrank ?.IcMahan of Sunburst; spent a couple of days last week at the J. A. Jochsm home.

June The j Canadian Manufacturers' Associa- tion. winding up its 75th annual i general meeting, heard Dr. R. C. j Wallace, principal of Queen's Uni- versity. Kingston. Ont., urge ex- pansion of research activities to produce new nroducts and develop J techniques which would lower pro- duction costs. Canada's expendi- tures on research were only l-10tn. in proportion to national income. of that of Russia and one-fifth of j the United States. Labor costs were j 1 inevitably rising and unless other I costs could be reduced export trade would be endangered.
