I'dlnnr-I Hoosevpll, after a Rood-na-liirerl rliafTing of tlie hoys' orchestra, sail! ; Sheep Commission Offers Some Very Useful Suggestions While the Bhcei) commission was in .session here yesteniay the VVool^iov-ers' .Yssocia! ion took ndvantit!;* of the (;pi"ortiinity aflorded by the presence of so many members, and' held a well attended meeting. .As t result Mr. Rich was asked many questions at the (general nioeting following and in answering he threw a groat deal of light on the wool situation in Western Canada. He brought out very forcibly the reasons why Canadian wool cannot compete with Australian and other foreign wooF on the Kuropean markets. It Is not so much tlml the Canadian product is interior in quality, although it could easily be raised to a higher standard by more careful breeding, but the carelessness with which the wool is packed for export causes it to lose out in competition. In order to catch the eye of the foreign buyer, the wool rrust he packed in as attractive a manner as possible. This has never been done in this locality. In the first place the fleeces are all packed If these two evils in our methods of handling wool here in the West are removed, .Mr Ricii slated that he was' positive that, with very little more cost in .-roduction, 111* value of the wool on Kuropeari nwrkets would be increased by fnim .?0 til fiO pur cent. What would this mean to the sheep ranchers of this disfict ' Tliern are about 50,000 sheep in the vicinity of J-ethbridgc. On an average year each sheep will yield abo'it eight pounds of wool. That ia, the v.o(]| product troin Lethbridge would he in the neighborhood of 400,000 pourjrti. The average price here fov the last five years has been approximately 13 cents per pound,"so that on an �rer-age year the sheep clip represents an output of $.'52,000 worth of raw material ; that is with our present grading and markets. But if the suggestions of Mr. Rich were followed out this a/nount would be increased by about '10 per cent. Then the wcjol pro duct from the Lethhrulgp rtlstvjict, would be worth $72,80(1 or an increase of $20,800 for a little carefulness in handling.
