SOUTH, LETHBRIDGE Branches of BARONS BOW ISLAND CARDSTON COALDAIE PICTURE BUTTE TABER with good soil and weather conditions should be better off in the long run. It is with this thought in mind that Agri-Analysis Ltd. built Canada's most modern and comprehensive oil and feed test- ing laboratory in Lethbridge. First time "Now is the first tune the technology of testing feed and soil samples has been offered to farmers on a competitive basis with government agen- cies." says T. Lynn Edge, gen- eral manager for the labora- tory. "The technology is the same as the government service but the recommendations can be different because Agri-Analy- sis works closely in consulta- tion with individual farmers." Farmers can be assured that in most cases, sample results can be determined within 24 hours of entry in the labora- tory, under the direction of lab manager Philip Sandberg. Catalogue For both the feed and soil samples, careful cataloguing techniques are followed, with all samples logged with an in- dividual number. The report number follows the sample throughout the testing proced- ure. After being logged with a special number, all samples re- ceived are put into a sterile stainless steel oven to dry. Soils are heated to 120 degrees and feeds to 212 degrees Fahren- heit. Mr. Sandberg said the heat- ing process is important since much of the testing is done by weight. Any moisture in a sam- ple could detract from an ac- curate reading. From the dryer, the sam- ples are put into a special stain- less steel grinder to produce a fine base material. This not only allows the test on all par- ticles in the sample but helps to ensure accurate measure- ment of sample weights. Once through the grinder, soils and feeds take different testing paths. The day The Herald visit- ed the lab Ron Bertrand was readying samples of soil using a scale to get exact amounts for the ensuing test tube work. Twenty samples were put in test tubes in a special rack. At the same time, 11 test sam- ples were run in conjunction with the racks to make sure Continued on Page 17 I NOW SEE IT LIVE SATURDAY JUNE 16, 8 P.M. 5 MEN 5 WOMEN On Each Team INT'L ROLLER DERBY LEAGUE ACTION CANADIAN ALL STARS starring iPaul "The Bear" Rupert, Oianne Syvsrson and others vs THE BOSTON BUCKS See Roller Derby every Saturday at p.m. on Channel -13 and Channel 4 Calgary LETHBRIOGE EXHIBITION PAVILION T-cketi: Children (14 and under) at DOUG'S AND MUSICLAND.
