One of the main stated objectives of the Quebec Farmers Union is to make agriculture pay and thus largely eliminate the problem of persuading succeeding generations to take over farms.

CALL 642-3845 ANDERSON SUPPLIES LTD. one for hog whose incomes fluctuate from year to One member of the Quebec Farmers Union in Joliette says it is the small hog farmers who oppose establishment of a marketing board for fear of being driven out of busi- ness by larger producers. But officials of the fanners' union say a pork producers' organization must come one even if it has to be imposed on the majority. The poultry producers' federation has an administrative council of 11 an executive council of five and a consultative committee as well as five production committees. Seeks pact Affiliated with the farmers' union and founded in the federation groups 11 regional producer associations. From 1972 to the gross revenues from poultry sales rose to million from million. For the last three the federation has administered a joint provincial plan and has worked to promote a national agreement to establish an equitable sharing of eventually set up national offices and marketing agencies. The same advantages exist for milk producers thanks to the work of their federation which was formed in 1970 in Que Considered a last hope by many milk the federation stopped over- production that was killing the market. The grouping the approximately fluid milk producers in the prov- established regulations and production quotas much as the poultry federation had done. It would have liked the federal government to increase the support price of industrial milk a hundredweight at the end of last March but Ag- riculture Minister Whelan announced an increase of only Milk producers generally credit the federation with stable marketing and price security. Hog remain exposed to market fluctuations and variations in feed grain prices. Studies indicate national hog production should not exceed animals a week. Yet are being marketed compared with an average of in 1973. After several good Quebec producers are encountering difficulties and asking for increased assistance from the provincial government. The province gives 34 cents a hundredweight in subsidies for purchase of feed grains. Producers want the amount increased to offset an expected rise in the price of corn from the United States this summer. Quebec producers also want the province to match subsidies of up to an animal provided by the governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan to help their hog producers make up their deficits. They see the direct subsidies by the two western governments as an attempt to break the equilibrium of the national hog market. Over and above the provincial marketing board which the majority of hog producers have some of them would like to see a national marketing office to ensure uniform prices and an equi- table marketing system. A senior official of the Quebec agriculture department would go a step setting up national marketing boards in all sectors of agri- cultural production. All of these steps are predicated on the ability of individualistic Quebec farmers to unite to achieve their common aims.

So say the Plant Quarantine Import Regulations of Canada. The regulations protect Canada from accumulating unwanted pests and plant diseases.
