Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 18, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta MARCH I 192t THE LETHBRIDGE DAHjY HERALB PAGE ELEVEN Board of Trade Hears G. H. Button On Future of the Livestock Industry In Alberta; Resolution On Irrigation Spirit of Optimism Pervaded Weekly Luncheon as Irri-Satioh and Livestock Av^ Discussed At tlio noon lunchoon ol the. Board t Trado Thursday, G. H. Hutloh of Calgrary, auporintendent of the agricultural and animal husbandry branch of the 0. P. R. department of natural roBOurc&s, iu an address on the livestock situation, cxpreased unbounded faith in this country from the llve-� stock point of view. Prof. Hutton laid down the principles underlying the industry in placing it on a firm, permanent basis: first, the selection of pure bred sires and good grado fe-male Stuff; second, the adoption of the silo Idea with sunflower ensilage guaranteeing cheap and palatable fodder; and third, co-operative marketing. Resolution on Irrigation The luncheon was largely attended and the spirit of renewed confidence in the country and of the %ood times ahead which the news from Edmonton concerning the government irrigation policy brought, was reflected in the high spirits of all present. Truly, it ASPIRIN Only "Bayer" is Genuine Warning! Unless you see the name "Bayer" on package or on tablets you are not getting Aspirin at all. Take Aspirin only as told in the Bayer pack-ago for Colds, Headache, Neuralgia, Kheumatism, Earache, Toothache, Lumbago and for Pain. Then you will be following the directions and dosage worked out by physicians during twenty-one years and proved safe by millions. Handy tin boxes of twelve Bayer Tablets of Aspirin cost few cents. Druggists also sell larger packages. Madfi in Canada. Aspirin Is the trade mark (registered in Canada), of Bayer Manufacture of Mono-acetlcacidester of Salicylicacid.-Advertisement. was a feast of fat things in every sense of the term, and when 0. F. .Tamieson moved a resolution of thanks to President Marnoch for the pionooring efforts he has put forth in bringing tlie auostlon of irrigation to an issue, and to the provincial government on its progressive, businesslike policy of a full bond guarantee, the answer came with vociferous applause. The voice oC Pres. Marnoch was drowned in tho happy din that followed Mr. Jamieson's address. Pres. Marnoch referred to several matters of business that would be held over until the ngxt luncheon. Ho said they had some more "dope" on Hatfield that would appear in Saturday's issue of tho Lothbridgo Herald. Referring to the irrigation policy of the government as announced this morning, Mr. Marnoch said that it marked tho beginning of great developments for the city and district. He was pleased to see tho gentlemen prdsent from Raymond, Coaldale and other outlying points, also the. large number of livestock men present. In introducing Prof. Hutton, Mr Mar-nOch stated that he knew of no other man who had made a more investigational study of livestock and feeding problems with . the view of their commercial poBslTjilities than had Prof. Hutton. Prof. Hutton Prof. Hutton said that he was not afraid of hard times. DilTlculties develop resource and initiative. The problems of the present were great but a way out would be found. He was not one of those who thought all was spoiled inside the country. Canada was facing a period of prosperity and expansion, he said. But in Western Canada our system of agriculture must be changed to fit into changing world conditions. What is needed? The speaker held that more livestock production was the key to success on tho farm today. The question naturally arises in face of this, can the Western Canada farmer produce- livestock to compete with outside competition on the world's markets? They can, in the opinion of the speaker. The land in Alberta, to come nearer home, was lo.w in price and equally as productive, if not more so than the high valued land of Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa and other mixed farming states, and of Ontario. But in order to establish the livestock industry in this country certain basic stops must'^Irst be taken. First, in tho opinion of Prof. Hutton, good sires were fundamentally needed. Pure bred sires were of prime importance. The large number of grade bulls at large on the range are responsible for the scrub beef going on tho markets from this country. Good females were also a contributing Mistress: "Whatever is the matter with your nose, .lane?" Jane: "Burned it someflng awful, mum."

Even it the females are grade stuff there are good and bad grade cattle. A community effort could bo made to bring in first class cows. Look Out For T, B. A note of warning against tuberculosis was sounded. It was a live issue In Western. Canada. Prof. Hutton said. Some of the largo cities have launched disease-free milk campaigns. Cows. supplying milk for the city trade must be subjected to the T. B. test. In the spring, sales at Regina, Calgary and other western cities all the animals will be tested for tuberculosis. As to securing pure bred males, Prof. Hutton suggested that the policy of the government to supply pure bred bulls should be followed up by the farmers. This would materially reduce the expense ol getting into tho business. Advocates Sunflowers Another important fact to be considered was cheap, bulky fodder. Tho solution of this problem, said Prof. Hutton was the sunflower and coupled with it, the silo. Compared with corn and other silage crops, sunflowers gave an exceptionally good a count of themselves. They produced a better grade of silago, it was more palatable, and yielded HO per cout heavier. At the C. P� R. Strathmoro farm they raised 33 tons to the aero. On dry land in the Medicine Mat di.s-trict a dairy farmer raised 11 tons to the acre. The pit" silo was a way to meet tho argument of cost. Silage kept in perfect condition in a pit. The community slfccr and blower was another suggestion of economy thrown out by the speaker. As for marketing, another important factor. Prof. Hutton recommended community effort.
