Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ____________ Thursday, Moy K, WJ WE lETHRRIDGE HERAtO Revolution helped Cuban farm boy By BUD JOKGENSEN SANTA CLARA, Cuba (CP) Uvaldo Lazo says he is con- vinced he would never be where he now is if it weren't for the revolution. Lazo, 40, is doing a job he enjoys and the job is one that carries considerable prestige in Cuba. He is director of an artificial insemination station in this provincial capital in the interior of Cuba, His father was a campesino, a poor farmer, who managed to save enough to send Lazo to veterinary school. But after Lazo graduated he could not find steady work. Before Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, Lazo said, vet- erinarians depended on politi- cal influence to get jobs and most of the hiring was done by large landowners. Lazo, a six-footer with a ruddy tan from years of work- ing outdoors, said he managed to support himself by doing small jobs "for family farms. The privately owned estates have been replaced by state- owned farms since 1959. Lazo said there are still family farms and they can get veteri- nary assistance from state clinics. CASTRO AN EXPERT Development of a cattle herd in Cuba is one of Cas- tro's pet projects. Lazo said Castro lias become an expert in Cuban prime minister obtained a law degree in reg- ularly visits farm installations such as the artificial insemi- nation station. "He asks a thousand ques- tions and he always remem- bers." Canadian farms are major sources of breeding stock for the Cuban cattle program. In 1967, the Cuban government paid for a grand champion Hostein bull, Inter- national B ack Velvet from tiie R. J. Stewart farm at Bol- ton, Ont. Foreign observers of Cuban trade say the Castro govern- ment now is more economy conscious and trade figures support this view. During 1970 and 1971, Cuba bought about head of cattle in Canada for about million or about ?S15 a head. They are crossing the Hoi- steins with the Indian Zebus in Canada as the Brahman. Lazo said the cross combines the high mik-pro- ducing capacity of the Hol- sleln and the ability of the Zebu to survive in a hot, humid climate. The cross produces a bit less tban half the amount ut milk given by a Holstein. Latest available figures on the Cuban cattle herd give its size as 7.1 million in 1968 and the Cuban report said this tolal is up from about five million in 1958 "with an ex- traordinary increase in qual- ity, thanks to artificial insemi- nation." QUALITY IMPROVES Projects in which Castro has taken a personal interest usually have t o p -q u a 1 i t y equipment and Lazo's labora- tory is no exception. The equipment includes capsules of liquid nitrogen to freeze semen for storage and trans- port it to small farms in re- mote areas. Bui the cattle program has a shortage of veterinarians, Lazo said. Many professionals left Cuba alter Castro took over and the Cuban education system now is graduating a high proportion of agriculture specialists. Lazo said his station oper- ates an on-the-job training program for laboratory tech- nicians in conjunction with the university at Santa Clara, one of three in Cuba. Lazo said ability and not po- litical influence now is the way to promotion in He said he was not a mem- ber of the Cuban Communist party and he was asked if sci- entific technicians were iyn- political and not interested in party membership. "Oh no, that is my aspira- tion." programs cul Tuberculosis threat drops By 7.II..M on (lie program there.
