Mr Gracey said the cattle numbers throughout the world are now in a surplus situation onlj when considering the countries which can afford to eat meat Mr Gracey said free trade of livestock isn't an issue for Canada but fair trade is He said Canada is the only countrv with an open door policv on livestock trade if it meets import standards But reciprocal tariffs, long a standing demand of the cattlemen's association is needed to protect Canadian cattlemen For too long now Canada has had lower import tariffs on cattle than other countries putting an unfair economic pressure on local producers Mdr Gracey called for better communications between government and producers to better determine when to spur production This will do away with problems of shortages and surpluses Rack benchers form policy, says senator CALGARY Obtaining change in governmental policy always doesn't mean take me to your leader" if pressure can be exerted on the right parliamentary back benchers says a Saskatchewan senator.

OLIVER INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY LTD. 236 36 St. North Phone 327-1571 'Farming industry must help politicians set policy' By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer CALGARY Politicians set agricultural policy but it is the responsibility of farmers and farm leaders in each sector to help mold that policy, say three industry experts Addressing about 110 profession agrologists at the annual meeting of the Alberta Institute of Agrologists here Friday, the agricultural experts agreed lobbying and providing advice were the tools needed to help establish effective agricultural policy Charles Gracey of Toronto, manager of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association said lobbying by one agricultural sector to get a policv which will benefit that sector is an honest and honorable activity But to have an effective lobbv an agricultural group must know more about the subject than government, must be armed with facts and be respectfull of government and the civil service Mr Gracey said it also helps to have an ally in government or senior civil servant circles He said lobbyists must learn to remember to listen to government because it just might have a better idea Compromise is also a big part of a successful lobby Mr Gracey pointed to the new Canadian livestock grading standards announced a few years ago "This was a real case of give and take." He said the new grading standards have helped but had the cattlemen s association refused to budge in its fight w ith government, We d still be standing there Mr Gracey stressed that any sector planning a lobby- must be sure to have the full support of the group the lobby is designed for "Politicians and civil servants have their own contacts in the industrv to check he said In the fight to influence that policy, it is important for provincial and national groups to keep their ideas together. If not. government can say it will decide the issues, he said R E McAllister, president of McAllister Environmental Services Ltd cautioned that it is easy to lose things by default Mr McAllister said people interested in changing government policy must understand business. He pointed to an example which showed it cost S5 64 million to develop a new pesticide chemical Any affecting that pesticide must be understood everyone from the industrv through to the consumer Glen Purnell, Alberta deputy minister of agriculture said the people most affected by proposed agricultural policy should be the ones to set the direction of thai policy Dr. Purnell said one of the key problems facing the agricultural sector in policy format.on is the large sector outside agriculture which affects the industry He said three-quarters of the decisions affecting farmers are made outside his control Any sector wanting to influence government policy must continue to make their views known, he said The sieve between the person suggesting change and the pei son making change is olten too tine said Dr Purnell Good ideas are too olten sifted out and don't get to the right person Overall land use policy 'would treat all equal' CALGARY Breaking up productive farmland for uses other than food production is wasteful, says Alberta s agrologist representative to the Agricultural Institute of Canada The institute a national bod v with representation from agrologists from all provinces ieeic subdivision of land for buildings and small holdings should be limited to land classed as non- productive said Jim Lore of Carstairs Mr Lore past president of the Calgary branch of the Institute of Agrologists. told The Herald in an interview at the provincial group's annual meeting here Friday this would raise a host of other problems but may become necessary as prime farmland becomes threatened by urban encroachment A key problem for the landowners would result, said Mr Lore If all the prime farmland was taken away from speculators, the value would have to be established by its agricultural productivity rate Since agriculture use provides a lower profit per acre compared to land which is to be subdivided for commercial uses, farmers owning poor land would make more money when they sold out This would penalize farmers with the best land Mr Lore said a large overall land use plan is needed to give everybody equal treatment Such a plan could embody a clause which would allow only a certain percentage of land to be subdivided The increased Former city scientist forming Yukon policy agricultur- al policy to determine the direction of the industry in the Yukon will be completed this year by a former re- search scientist from Leth- bridge Ron Peake president of a new consulting firm R W Peake and Associates Ltd of Lethbridge has been hired by the Yukon Territorial Government to design an agricultural policy for Canada s far north Mr Peake who recently- retired from the Lethbridge Research Station, told The Herald here Friday his work involves identifying the phvsical areas of the Yukon where agriculture can be an economically feasible He will also determine what Upe of agriculture should be undertaken in the various areas He said livestock feed grains forage and market gardening are the general auncultural guidelines he has to work with Tne feed grams aspect is utal because the Yukon depends on hundreds of horses for its tourist industry The gram is needed to feed the horses The same tourist industry also makes range management important, he said Without mangement. it is esy to over graze pastureland and this would afect the game animals which in turn helps attract people to the north The job entails extensive travel, he said profits realized from the sale of the nonproductive land for subdivision could then be divided among the remaining land owners Is land a commodity or a natural resource'' said Mr Lore And there is growing pressure that land should be considered a natural resource with nobody reallv owning anv That wav, the land could be used according to the needs of the public and monev wouldn't enter the picture He pointed to the legislation in British Columbia which makes it impossible to sell certain parcels of land unless that land is to continue in agricultural use Mr Lore said the legislation resulted in a storm of protest against the government because farmers overnight lost tremendous amounts of monev Instead of being able to sell the land to commercial interests at a high rate, they had to sell it for farm use at a lower rate MOVING?
