Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, May 10, 1972 THE IETHBHIDGE HERAtO 39 Markeling-sliarinp quota system Prairie milk producers to receive more revenue this year By JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (CP) Prai- rie milk producers arc ex- pected to receive about million more revenue this year as stability comes to the industry in the form of a mar- ket-sharing quota system. The plan, devised by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, has been in effect for more than a year in Ontario and produce about 80 per cent of the country's Prince Edward Island joined late last year. But Hie Prairie provinces rejected the original plan be- cause it would have placed their producers at a disadvan- tage in the market. Now, changes which will prove ben- eficial to both eastern and prairie producers have been made clearing (he way for Western participation. In a plebiscite March 27, Al- berta producers voted over- whelmingly to enter the pro- gram which, Agriculture Min- ister Hugh Horner predicted, will mean an additional million in revenue this year. Saskatchewan, which has approved legislation, is ex- pected to enter the plan July but without holding a refer- endum among producers. ISN'T CONTROVERSIAL An agriculture department spokesman said the changes "made it almost impossible for us not to join" and that there had been general agree- ment among producers at ex- planatory meetings held by the department throughout the province. "We're confident the matter is not controversial." the spokesman said when asked why the move would be imple- mented without a producer vote. He said when the original plan by the Canadian dairy commission was proposed four years ago there were about milk producers in Saskatchewan compared with about now. In Alberta, there now are an estimated producers and 76 per cent of the who cast ballots approved en- tering the program. In Manitoba, entry into the plan is expected about the same lime as Saskatchewan, The existing Manitoba milk control board has been given the status of a commission to administer the plan when final regulations are com- pleted with the federal com- mission. QUOTAS SET Under the program, each producer is given a share or quota of the Canadian market for industrial that not used for fluid on his production during the dairy year April 1970, to 1371. That producer is guaranteed a subsidized price for his quota production. However, if he over-produces, his surplus is sold on the world market at going prices and the producer must absorb any loss. Pre- viously, the loss was spread over the entire country's pro- ducers. The Canadian dairy com- mission handles the federal government subsidy of million a year. Previous to the market- sharing plan, if the commis- sion bought skim milk powder at 20 cents a pound and then had to sell it on the world market at 10 cents, the differ- ence would be deducted from the subsidy. UP TO PROVINCES In 1S570, the commission spent million on export subsidies leaving only SflO mil- lion to be returned to the pro- ducers. Under the new program, the full amount of the subsidy will be paid up to the total quota and any surplus will be sold on behalf of the producer at tiie going world rate at the time. "So now if one province has a big surplus over its quota, that is its said S. H. Thomas, chairman of the Alberta milk control board which will administer the market-sharing plan in the province.
