Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wheat board target is 28 M. crop acres By VICTOR MACKIE OTTAWA A wheat acreage of 28 million, or an increase of six million acres over last year, appears to "be the maximum re- quired this year, according to the prairie grains policy an- nounced Thursday by Otto Lang, minister responsible lor the Wheat Board. Out of this acreage it is esti- mated that about three million acres should be in durum wheat and about 25 million acres in all other wheat. Assessing the world wheat picture for the 1973774 crop year a larger than normal world pro- duction in grains and oilseeds is expected, barriDg bad weather, bringing some price reductions, said the prairie grains policy paper. Wheat stocks remaining in Canada in commercial positions at the end o! nrop year will Iw approximately 200 million bushels. This means a reduction in stocks of some 70 million bushels from the year before making it necessary to build up the stocks. For the 1973-74 crop year the government has approved an initial payment for No. 1 Can- da Western Red Spring of per bushel, basis in store Thunder Bay or Van- couver. This is the same as the current level. A minimum of 500 million bushels of all wheat (except du- vum) will be accepted under Wheat Board quotas. Assuming favourable weather conditions western grain farm- ers can look forward to a good year in 1973, Mr. Lang said. A year ago it was not ex- pected that prices for grains and oilseeds would reach the current levels. This shift under- lines how quickly and dramati- cally the world supply and de- mand situation can change in less than a year, said the policy paper. It is expected that in 1973 pro- ducing countries, will be all making major efforts to in- crease their production in all grains and oilseeds. World grain crops will probably be in greater supply in 1973-74, it sug- gested.

Saturday, March 10, 1971 THE LETriBRIDGE HERALD _ 23 EDMONTON (CP) _ rovincial government is The con- cerned about a proposed new to for a controversial live- stock marketing centre in Cal- ary, Municipal Affairs Minis- er Dave Russell said in the egislature Thursday. Mr. Russell told George Ho Lc-m (SC Calgary hat the federal ministry of ransport might object to the >ew site because of its pronm- ty to the Calgary International Airport. "If this is true, it is disturb- ng because the province has >een working diligently in try ng to prepare planning Icgis- ation that would give every irotection to the new intern a- ional airport proposed lor Cal- gary." Mr. Russell said Fred Pea- cock, Alberta's minister of In- dustry and commerce. Is an- xious to have the planning leg- islation introduced during the current session of the legisla- ture. The proposed new site, at the intersection of the Barlow and Blaekfoot Trail, is about one mile away from the original lo- cation in northeast Calgary. Residents of the area, known as Vista Heights, have been attempting to block construc- tion of the million cen- tre, claiming it will lower real estate values and result in of- fensive odors. The project, known as an agri market centre, is being proposed by the Alberta live- stock Co-op Ltd., which was forced to put up a bond to guarantee that the buildings would be constructed in such a way that birds would not be attracted to the vicinity of airport. Tha bond was requested alter a study by the ministry transport's committee on bird hazards indicated a potential hazard to aircraft from birds being attracted lo the stock- yard.
