Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March 13, 1974 LETHBRIOOE HERALD Cattlemen reject call for increased production OTTAWA (CP) Cattlemen have rejected a government call for increased production, arguing that the country's beef herd has to be cut down if their industry is to survive. Spokesmen for the Canadian Cattlemen's Association said during the group's annual meeting Tuesday that consumers can expect restricted supplies an higher prices for beef this year. "If they're going to eat, they're going to have to pay for said association representative Chris Mills. "The problem right now is too much production, not too Mr. Mills said. Cattlemen were selling animals for less than it cost to raise them. The association, which calls itself "the spokesman for over 12 million head of agreed that the country' herd had expanded more rapidly than it should have because of government incentive programs between 1968-72. During that period, grain prices were depressed by sur- pluses and the government paid farmers to divert wheatland into summerfallow and forage crops. Farmers found it more profitable'to feed grain to cattle and sell beef rather than to sell grain. In the last two years, however, world demand and prices for grain has soared following international crop failures. Domestic feed grain prices have risen to the point where farmers can make more money by selling grain than by feeding it to livestock and selling meat. The association says cattlemen now must sell beef for 50 cents a pound merely to break even. But beef prices to farm- ers have dropped from more than 60 cents a pound last sum- mer to less than 50 cents a pound now. Syd Williams, deputy minister of agriculture, told the cattlemen that cheap feed grain in the past has contributed to the rise in the beef population. The current market indicated that the "buildup has been too rapid." The cattlemen also agreed that steps should be taken to block a current flood of imported American cattle that is currently undercutting domestic prices. While the association supports the concept of free North American trade in beef and cattle, new tariffs and import quotas are needed to offset current lower prices, Mr. Mills said. The association says an American beef price freeze last summer disrupted domestic beef prices. U.S. cattlemen held their animals off the market during the freeze, then sold heavily when it was lifted. The overflow spilled into Canada, lorcing domestic prices down. The government moved to counter the effect of the im- ports last fall by doubling a 1.5-cent-a-pound tariff on imported cattle and a three-cent tariff on imported beef. That surcharge now has been lifted, but the cattlemen say it must be reimposed. As well they say they want the government to institute a quota system based on the U.S.-Canada cattle ratios. Imports would be restricted to head, or about a tenth of domestic exports to the U.S. M. Williams said the call for a surcharge was under "extremely active consideration" and that the government was considering a number of options aimed at protecting the domestic cattle market. Operation Handshake features exchange of Alberta students EDMONTON (CP) Operation Handshake, an urban rural exchange program sponsored by the department of culture, youth and recreation, will give jun- ior high school students in Alberta a chance to see a different way of life this summer.

Rural high school students from a farm, or a community or less than people will stay with city students for one then entertain city students for one week in the country.

Turner is accused of reversing stand OTTAWA Revenue from the federal export tax on crude oil will not be taken into account in calculating federal equalization payments to poorer provinces, Finance Minister John Turner told the Commons Tuesday. He was immediately accused by Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield of reversing a position announced in January. Mr. Stanfield said the minis- ter told MPs then that oil-tax revenue would be subject to equalization. He had even esti- mated the Oct. 1 to Jan. 31 cost at million. He said Mr. Turner also ad- vised him of this in private. "The minister disappoints me. Mr. Turner said his earlier remarks were conditional, and that he had not made a definite statement. Under the equalization pro- gram. Ottawa makes lump- sum payments to the seven poorer provinces. Only Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia do not qualify. Half the revenue from the export tax. in effect since Oct. 1. is returned to the oil- producing provinces, most going to Alberta and Saskatchewan. If it were taken into account in calculating equalization payments, there would be a general increase in the amount Ottawa would be obligated to pay. Outside the House. Mr. Stanfield rejected Mr. Turner's claim that his earlier remarks had been conditional and that subsequent advice from officials had changed his mind. 'His remarks to the House were not conditional. His re- marks to me were not condi- tional." He said Mr Turner should have admitted thai he made an error in his original his statement now that statement. "I'd accept that." what he told the House was "What I will not accept is conditional."
