Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDGE HERALD May 1874 Ric Swihart American tour reveals ranchers not hostile It's great to be back behind the farm desk after three weeks in South Dakota and Montana. It was interesting to see a moleboard plow working in some of the blackest soil around. The farmers were busy plowing down the huge corn which because of the bulky requires deep soil penetration. Corn planters were much in evidence also as agriculture was in full gear. I talked to a few cattlemen while down south. The big question was the diethylstilbestrol ban on cattle and sheep from the United States to Canada. None of the men seemed upset about the move and they were simply going about their business of trying to make a living off HAVE 30 YIARS OF EXPERIENCE Look into water storage and drainage problems. Dragline boom lengths up to 80 ft. for the long reach. Bucket yard to heavy duty back MALCHOW THE EXCAVATOR LTD. 329-0303 DIAMOND ALBERTA the land. This is one attribute that I admire about the Americans if they find some they also find a way to beat it. All the men I talked to had recently bought feeder cattle from the Alberta and Saskatchewan areas. It is quite likely the feeders from Montane actually originated in Alberta also. To me this threw a curve at the Canadian argument that the Americans would retaliate for the border closure. I think the Canadians might have made a mountain out of a molehill because of the sheer numbers of American cattle marketed each week. The to head stopped from entering Canada each week really wasn't a drop in the bucket on the American market which kills more than weekly.

Way around Although Federal Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan doesn't credit the DES ban with improved it has to have an affect. Local producers will argue with the minister and while prices for live cattle reached the break even point with production costs early last week with the three-cent-per-pound federal subsidy added the producers have a nagging fear that the Americans will find a way around the ban. It's the pulse of the land versus the minister and this time I agree with the pulse. On another line of it is interesting to note that tenders should be called some time soon for the construction of the new federal-provincial research station laboratory and information dispersal building for the Lethbridge Research Station grounds. The price tag estimated has now reached up from the original million. New structure The price really doesn't matter since the new structure has been overdue for about 20 years. But the federal minister of bless his little should be able to make some political hay by telling the public how much more the federal government is pouring into Southern Alberta. Sven Encksen should be happy also. Some news for the travellers in the south. Make room June 22 for the annual Southern' Alberta Hereford tour whicfi will visit several ranches in the Fort Macleod district. The tour will start at 8 a.m. at the Sam and Bob Zoeteman farm at Pearce and continue through the Lawrence Gerald Mark Nellie Prank Jack Jan Joe Lome and Marion Hoffman farms before winding up with a supper at the Hans Ulricb place. The Southern Alberta Hereford Belles will pick the Southern Alberta Hereford Princess at the supper and any girls 16 to 21 without wedding gold on their finger can enter the competition. Entries from breeder's commercial feeder's daughters and 4-H members should be in Joyce Templeton's hands by May 31. Family tour The tour is open to the public and people can pick up the autocade at any of the above mentioned farms. Joyce stresses for everybody to bring the family. MULCHING MOWERS to 4 h.p.
