The snowfall which started about 2:30 this morning was expected to continue throughout the day and intermittently Saturday. Up to 5 a.m. Lethbridge received eight-tenths of an inch of snow. Then it started com- ing down more heavily. Temperature Thursday hit a high of 23 degrees above with an overnight low of 18 above. This compares with a high of 45 above and an overnight low of 20 above with a trace of snow for the comparable period last year. Waterton Park's temperatures were about the same as Lethbridge with a high of 24 and a low of 16 but the town-site received three inches of snow overnight with light snow continuing this morning. CargilVs official speaks at Agtoramu Communication key to grain sales By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer A highly efficient and expensive communications system is the key to successful grain sales for all countries in the market, said R. L. M. Dawson, vice-president of Cargill Grain Manitoba Ltd. Addressing about 100 people at a grain marketing short course in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Thursday, Mr. Dawson said multi-national corporations and international grain handling com*, ponies spend millions of dollars each year to staff offices in many countries to keep the market information up-to-date AGRORAMA 71 - More than 2,000 people visited and viewed displays of Agrorama 71 being held this week in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion.

He said his company (Cargill is one of the largest grain warehouse and grain handling companies in the world) has offices directly related by instant communications in more than 50 countries representing Canadian grain growers. "The company must be ready now to either say sold to a buyer, or be able to make a counter offer," he said. He said one of the major drawbacks for Canada in the area of salesmanship is the policy of getting the approval for a sale from the Canadian wheat board. "Many buyers will not take the risk of missing a good deal with some other country by having to wait for the approval of the Canadian Wheat Board. "This drawback has been reduced somewhat by s o m e international companies who have bought grain outright from the Canadian wheat board. The company then has grain on hand and can make an instant decision whether to sell or not." Mr. Dawson, who is manager of the Vancouver office for Cargill, said Canadian wheat no longer has a specialized place on the world market because of the traditional high protein content. "Milling technology has increased now to the stage where the grain can be broken down so the flour making endosperm in the kernel can be divided into millions of parts, allowing protein to be extracted," he said. "This now enables mills to obtain high protein flour from any wheat. "Although the quality of protein is just as important as the quantity, the higher price of Canadian strong, wheats makes some buyers seek grain from other countries."

Some have criticized the Canadian Wheat Board for selling barley at such a low price the last few years, but the decision was made to compete aggressively on the world market in feed grain. He said he agreed with the idea but felt the method of selling the barley was wrong. "There was no effective communication in the barley market at the time," he said. "This is where the importance of the Winnipeg Futures Market will play an increasingly important role in feed grain marketing." The Winnipeg Futures Market is basically an insurance against price fluctuations, a way for producers or processors to predict future markets. important ing in grain industry The milling industry in Canada is an important cog in grain handling and utilization of agriculture products, R. C. Ellison, president of Ellison Milling and Elevator Co. Ltd., said Thursday. He told about 100 people attending the grain marketing short course in the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion the export of flour has helped in the sale of Canadian wheat on the international market. "The quality of Canadian flour is very high and many countries come here to get wheat for millong purposes," he said. He said the Canadian milling industry has suffered in the last few years because all countries have started milling for themselves. "In 1907, there were 454 mills in Canada and this was increased to a high of 801 in 1922," he said. "Today there are only 50 mills operating." He said the total capacity of the 50 mills is 174,000 hundred weight in 24 hours of production. "This utilizes 400,000 bushels of wheat. "The total production for the last four years is 39 million hundred weight, using 19 million bushels," he said. Mr. Ellison said poor salesmanship is responisble for the lack of import markets. "In 1954, Canada sold 24 million hundred weight using the free-trade commercial basis but this declined to 3Ms million in 1969. "In 1953, the federal government didn't buy very much gift flour. It amounted to less than one day's run. "In 1969, government bought 1,700,000 hundred weight. This was an increase but it is not sufficient." Mr. Ellison said wheat has been under priced in the last few years. "At 60 cents per bushel, with the high production rates, the price received is about the same as the price of wheat in 1900 when it sold for 33 cents per bushel." He said another aspect of wheat utilization is the decline in the consumption of wheat flour products in both tbe United States and Canada. "In the 1920s, Canadians consumed 188.4 pounds per person of flour products while Americans consumed about 200 pounds," he said. "This declined drastically in the years since and in 1970, Canadians consumed only 131.6 pounds each whUe Americans consumed only ill pounds." DR. Do R. BROWN M.D. C.R.C.S.
