Stock cows - Only fair quality selling $250.00 to 280.00 per Poultry sales spur U.S. note WINNIPEG (CP) - The Manitoba Co-operator says the United States government has sent a strong note to Ottawa charging Canada with using subsidized poultry meat products to take away "traditional U.S. export markets." The weekly newspaper, published by Manitoba Pool Elevators, says the U.S. is pursuing the matter through bilateral discussions and through the general agreement on tariffs and trade. The Co-operator says the case goes back to February when the Canadian agricultural products hoard invited poultry firms to tender for three million pounds of broilers or chicken parts in 300,000 - pound lots, for export to Japan and Hong Kong. The newspaper adds: Grain handlers accept new wage contract THUNDER BAY (CP) -Grain handlers employed in 24 elevators have voted to accept a new two-year contract providing for a 10-per-cent wage increase. The union said the vote by about 1,200 grain handlers was 60 per cent in favor of terms negotiated with Lakehead Terminal Elevators Association. The new agreement raises basic wages to $4.05 ah hour from $3.35. The Grain Handlers' Union had asked for a rise of $1.25 and the association first offered 25 cents. The first 35-cent increase is retroactive to Jan. 1 and the second takes effect at the start of 1972. The new agreement also says employees may be asked to work on Sunday, but at twice the regular salary. Committee to study Metis' land needs urged in brief EDMONTON (CP) - The Metis Association of Alberta today asked the provincial government to form a three-man committee to study the question of land for Metis people. The association said in a brief that the committee should have representatives of the provincial and federal governments and the association. It would hold bearings and collect information on the land needs of Metis who don't own land and those who require additional property. Recommendations would be made directly to the provincial cabinet "so that our people will be assured of firm and powerful action to settle their claims." The brief also asked that while the committee was doing its work, the government put a freeze on all property situations affecting Metis. "We h a v e a number of instances . . . where people are being, or appear, threatened with being evicted from lands they have occupied for a generation or more," said the brief. "There is a widespread feeling of apprehension on the part of our people about the whole matter. We wish to allay this feeling and establish an atmosphere in which the issue can be approached calmly and carefully." The association said the federal government should be represented on the committee because many federal - provincial development and assistance programs are bound up directly in the land question.

There now are about 2,800 persons living on eight government - established Metis colonies in the province.

Total sows 20, average 14.10. "United States officials now claim that the tender provided for the Canadian government to pay the successful bidder an export subsidy amounting to the difference between the purchase price on the Canadian market and the price received from Far East purchasers. "American consternation began when these broilers- principally from Quebec-Avere offered in the Hong Kong and Japanese markets at 24 cents a pound for Grade A as compared to an American price for U.S. Grade A of about 35 cents a pound. Washington says this is lowest uttsubsidized offer that the American exporters can make." The newspaper quotes an official of the U.S. foreign agriculture service as saying the Canadian government took the action to relieve surplus poultry stocks, adding: "The bulk of these stocks apparently were located in the province of Quebec and were accumulated as a direct result of a series of provincial marketing orders created in 1S70 which hindered the free movement of poultry products in inter-provincial trade." Killing plant location set TABER (HNS) - Joe Kle-men's killing plant to be located in the industrial park immediately east of Prairie Livestock's auction market was given the green light by the Taber town council.
