Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta prices OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian dairy commission price supports and subsidies will remain unchanged in the year beginning April 1, Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson told the Commons Tuesday. Mr. Olson said the subsidy on manufacturing milk and cream will remain at $1.25 for 100 pounds of milk testing 3.5-percent butterfat, or 35.71 cento a pound of butterfat. Prices at which the commission offers to purchase major dairy products would "for the present'' remain at existing levels. The butter support price would continue at 65 cents a pound. That for skim milk powder would be 24 cents a pound and for cheddar cheese 51 cents. "These changes will mean that in the forthcoming dairy year there will be a significant increase in market prices to producers for industrial milk compared with those in effect at tbo start of this (1970-71) dairy year," Mr. Olson said in a statement on dairy policy in the Commons. A holdback on subsidy payments would continue in provinces not under market-sharing quotas. In Ontario and Quebec, where quotas had been adopted in the last year, producers would continue to be paid the full subsidy, with a levy on the market payment being remitted to the commission. Mr.Olson said the major surplus dairy product is skim milk powder. Prices had improved markedly in the last year. But it was difficult for the commission at the moment to estimate the price that would prevail for exports of skim milk powder during the coming year. As a result it might be another -month, "and probably more," before the levy rate could:be clarified.. Meanwhile, the levy on payments would continue at present levels with one exception. The change would be discontinuation of the levy of one cent a pound of butterfat on cream deliveries by a producer up to his quota. The commission might adjust rates when it is better able to estimate costs of surplus disposal. Harry Moore (PC - WetasW-wjn), a dairy farmer, said the government program will not meet increased costs for the farmers. Never had there been as much dissatisfaction among dairy farmers as there was now. The government's object was to get out of paying subsidies. Mr. Moore said the dairy industry is the only Canadian industry under complete state control and that since 1967 half the number of producers have been forced out of business. Alf Gleave, NDP farm spokesman, said the government's dairy policy is to reduce sup-part to the minimum. Adrten Lambert (Creditiste -Bellechasse) said he had hoped for improvements in the policy that would help meet rising costs. .Wednesday, March 31,1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - IS Robichaud successor to be chosen FREDERICTON (CP) - New Brunswick Liberals will hold a leadership convention here Oct. 15-16 to choose a successor to former premier Louis J.
