Bull semen export depends on sheep By RIC SW1HART Herald Staff Writer CALGARY Sheep, the biggest agricultural industry in Australia, hold the key to a cattle semen export business from Canada that netted about million in 1973. Although the Australians want semen from Canadian cattle bulls for artificial insemination programs, health officials in that country demand that Canadian authorities test all cattle for blue tongue. Blue tongue is a disease that could wipe out the sheep industry if it ever got a foothold in Australia, officials say. For this reason, sheep in Canada hold a key to the health test of bulls eligible to provide semen for the Australian export market. Ivan Reed, of Jalgary, veterinarian in charge of Northern Alberta for the health of animals branch of the Canada department of agriculture, says there are eight artificial insemination stud units in Canada which process semen for export to Australia. In all units, health of animals officials perform tests for 10 possible diseases, tests which are done every time semen is taken university advises prospective summer students to apply early for the courses offered on campus from May through August. The summer session is offered in three parts. The first begins May 6, the second July 2 and the third July 25. Course enrolments in the summer sessions will be limited.

The police commission members refused to say whether they would meet with Mr. Drade'r until after a meeting Thursday afternoon with city officials. The commission announced Mr. Drader's dismissal at a news conference. Members said they had "lost confidence" in Mr. Drader's leadership. The commission offered Mr. Drader one-year's salary, in consideration of his dismissal. Chris Evans, lawyer for Mr. Drader, said in a telephone interview from Calgary that "some action may be taken" Bad chocolates off shelves in city stores All products of Regent Chocolate Ltd. of St. Hyacinthe. Que., have been taken off the shelves of Lethbridge stores and no cases of food poisoning from the chocolate products have been reported, says the city's health officer. "There is none on the shelves of Lethbridge stores as far as we can tell." says A. A. Bryne. All major distributors have received letters and sent the products back. The chocolate products have been recalled by the federal health and protection branch because three chocolate rabbits made by the company contained salmonella eastbourne, a microorganism which causes food poisoning.

He would not say what action is being considered. If the lawyer decides to appeal the dismissal to the provincial police appeal board, it be a precedent-setting case, said a spokesman for the board. The spokesman said if the appeal is made, the police act of 1970 will be used as law. The spokesman said it is not known if the commission would have the jurisdiction to overturn a local commission's decision. Mr. Evans said Mr. Drader has not seen a confidential police commission report on the former chief. He said he hopes the report is made public soon. Only commission members have seen the document. Mr. Drader was dismissed after an aborted two-day commission hearing into Mr. Drader's department was halted by an interim court order issued in Calgary. Police Inspector John Judge was named acting chief pending a permanent appointment.

Pow-wow singers from Brocket and Standoff will perform and an Indian princess will be chosen from three candidates. The program is open to the public. An announcement will be made soon on either construction of a new federal building in Lethbridge, or major renovation to the present building, a senior public works official said today. A. D. Cook, senior project manager with the federal public works department in Edmonton, said he hopes the minister will make an announcement on plans for federal government office space in the city "in a-couple of months." Spending estimates tabled in the House of Commons Thursday show for a public building in Lethbridge. Estimates last year indicated would be spent on renovations and additions to the present building on 4th Ave. and 7th St. S. Mr. Cook was quoted by The Herald last February as saying space requirements were being studied with a possible start on construction by the end of 1973. However, he said today representations made by city council and others in favor of retaining the old post office, built in 1912, caused U fund plan benefit seen The University of Lethbridge may benefit .substantially from the provincial government's extension of the Three Alberta Universities Fund until 1976, the university president said Thursday. Bill Beckel said the d' ;ree of benefit would depend on whether the university could continue to convince people to contribute to the fund. "If they do, they get a real benefit in having their dollars matched by the government and the university gets a real benefit because it needs the said Dr. Beckel. The plan was introduced in 1969 and the government pledged to match up to 925 million over a five year period. The provincial government said in a press release it has extended the program to March 31. 1976. The money is to be used for capital development, and most has been spent on the building programs. Dr. Beckel said U of L now knows any money given to it through the 3AU Fund will be matched. There bad been uncertainty as to whether money donated after October would be matched. department to "take another look at the situation." The mentioned in the spending estimates is not necessarily all the money that would be spent on a building. Mr. Cook said. Money spent in the 1975-76 fiscal year would not appear in the estimates for the coming fiscal year. TRAIN TO MOVE WHEAT TO COAST More than bushels of .wheat in 82 rail hopper cars will leave Lethbridge Tuesday in the first of an expected series of unit grain trains. The federal government announced a special grain trucking program last month which was aimed at moving about bushels of grain from country elevators to the main Canadian Government Elevator in Lethbridge. With the grain cleaned at the government terminal, it can be loaded in the hopper cars ready for export. Earl Olson, spokesman for CP Rail in Calgary, told The Herald this morning five diesel units will pull the 82 cars to Calgary Tuesday. Wednesday the train will be arranged with four diesel units at the head and two diesel units in the middle, making a robot train similar to those used to haul coal from the Crowsnest Pass to Roberts Bank in British Columbia. Mr. Olson said the robot train should arrive in Vancouver Thursday. Enroute, two or three diesel units will be used to help push the robot train up four main long distance grades. Mr. Olson said the unit trains should help to alleviate some of the congestion problems at the export terminals in Vancouver. Reports Thursday indicated there could be up to 19 grain ships waiting in Vancouver for cargo by Saturday. The waiting period for a grain loading berth at the port is eight to 10 days at a cost of to per day. Reasons for the delay are bad weather, a shortage of box cars and not enough locomotive power to move the grain from the Prairies to the port. Mr. Olson said since the grain leaving Lethbridge on the unit train will be clean, it should be able to be processed at Vancouver and be ready for loading on ships in a shorter period of time. The snowfall problems, especially in Eastern Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, have caused a problem for farmers wanting to deliver grain. The snow has also meant CP Rail has had to use more diesel units to clear tracks than normal, taking locomotive power away from hauling freight and grain. Mr. Olson said in the first two months of 1973, there were no snowplow miles handled by CP Rail crews in the Alberta South division. For the first two months of 1974. crews have plowed miles of track, mostly in the Brooks region. Jack Waterhouse. superintendent of the government terminal elevator in Lethbridge, said he didn't know when the next unit train would be assembled in Lethbridge. Don Figurski, assistant general manager of the Canadian Grain Commission in Winnipeg, will supervise the first unit train operation in Lethbridge. from a bull. There are three bull stations in Calgary, one in British Columbia, three in Eastern Canada and one in Saskatchewan which prepare semen for export to Australia. Veterinarian Ernest Haworth works at two of the bull stations in Calgary to test for disease. He says although all tests for the 10 diseases are of equal importance, the test for blue tongue is the most elaborate. This test requires 63 sheep per bull for every 30-day semen collection period. In the test for blue tongue, blood must be collected from each bull every five days. Since semen is collected for processing twice each week, small amounts are kept for the test. A technician draws blood from the under side of the bull's tail with a syringe. Twenty cubic centimeters of blood are needed. The under side of the tail is used because this causes the least stress to the animal. When collected, the semen and blood are taken to a farm where the sheep are located. The first series of tests for blue tongue involves three sheep. Into two sheep Dr. Haworth injects 10 cubic centimeters of blood each. The other sheep is injected with one cubic centimeter of semen from the same bull the blood was taken from. Nine days following the first test, blood is drawn from all three sheep and it is then injected into three different sheep. This same procedure is repeated with another three sheep nine days after the second treatment. The temperatures of all the sheep are recorded every morning and night during the 23-day period. If blue tongue is evident, the temperature of the sheep infected would be the first indicator. If all the sheep tested for the semen collected from the bull 23 days previous are certified healthy, the semen processed from the bull is put in a special freezer storage tank, marked and dated. If there is no incidence of blue tongue found in Canada during a one year period following the test, that particular tank of semen becomes eligible for export to Australia. The semen for export is collected only from Nov. 1 to March 31. This is the period when blood sucking flies are dormant and there is less possibility of the disease being passed. In addition, when a bull station is collecting semen for export to Australia, no bull from the United States can be on the premises. Dr. Haworth said this precaution is taken because blue tongue has been found in the U.S. No incidence of the disease has been found in Canada. Because of the high rate of trade in cattle between Canada and the U.S., no bull providing semen for export can be in contact with a U.S. animal for six months prior to collection. CUFF HACK.
