He told the annual electors' meeting here, "We have been relying on the use of local people with hounds and the results have been reasonably good" But one of the 30 ratepayers in attendance asked: "Why don't you use 1080 for coyotes and Mr. Reid said: "You can't kill a fox with 1080 because he won't eat it. He has got to get his own. There is no way." The ratepayer said he is sick and tired of having to repair fences broken by snow vehicle riders chasing coyotes. Coun. Ron Johnson of Barnwell said "hounds are more considerate than the fellows using snow rigs." The meeting was told predator specialists are available One is stationed in Brooks and another at Cardston. "They will get the coyote that is causing the trouble and leave all the rest alone."

Expenditures of the agricultural service board were itemized as follows: Fieldman's salary and agricultural service board, agricultural service board labor mileage, chemical purchases, machinery repairs, fuel purchases, board meetings, equipment hire, purchase of forage seed, warble control program, coyote and pest control, unemployment insurance, and miscellaneous, for a total expenditure of Revenue included: government grants and special agreements, government grants, warble control, custom work, chemical sales, scale rental, and from municipal funds, for total revenue of In answer to a question about spraying roadsides for grasshoppers, Mr. Reid said the MD has to mix up enough for 18 miles but "you only find the hoppers in spotty areas of up to two miles." He said it could be done if you could pinpoint the hopper areas. "But you have got to have the wind working for you or you are in trouble." "What's the outlook for grasshopper asked a ratepayer. He was told there are gallons of Dimethoate at Brooks now and a like amount at Lethbridge. ENFORCEMENT Another ratepayer asked about enforcement of the warble control program.

In this period the service board used 10 gallons of Tordon 22K along with 2-4-D Amine 96 on 14 miles of roadside spraying as a demonstration to see if it could get better control of Canada Thistle. The MD also used 200 pounds of Tordon Beads in various areas of the MD for the control of Toad Plax and Russian Knapweed.
