Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta X PAGE EIGHT THE LKTHBRin'OR HKfttLU 1920 OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER 0- Seven or Eight Per Cent. Cattle Lost in Losses Heavier. Tho winter just pa.n has been one: of the most trying on live slock in the history of the province. The prai- rie area in genfral went into the winter very short of Iced. The- balance of the province, including Central and Northern Alberta had sufficient feed for an ordinary winter. High urices offered for hay and sheaves induced some of the farmers to sell some of their feed early In the winter to tho faraen In tho prairie country. Had the winter and spring proved to he an ordinary one, then? would still have 'been, enough feed to carry the stock ;iu Northern and Central Aberta. Duly In March it became evident that a cood many farmers in this territory experience a feed shortage due to quite untwual conditions and they .Buttered considerable losses. Some dif- ficulty was experienced in securing .-rapid movemeent of hay fruni Eastern to the central and northern parts of the province during the early I stage of this emergency. A little lat- er, however, free movement was se- cured and the situation was material- ly relieved. In the southern and eastern portions of the province conditions were some- what different. H was evident in tho early fall to the prairie farmer thai he must provide feed for the winter or reduce his livestock. shipment of lira stock were sent to market from this area during the late summer and months. Feed for the balance o" the slock was arranged for In Northern Alberta, and Eastern Canada. As early as October bay began moving to Southern Alberta and a steady supply -.was kept up any furious fhorugi except In a few small dislrfots. The result In South- ern and Extern, Alberta hafi been that the in cattle by reason of the reduction of stocks aud. foresight in tha purchase of feed is not particular' ly heavy. Enquiries respecting losses have beeu ?eui to a large number of farm- ers and crop reporters Uiroughout the province.
