Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, May 16, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Farmers are asked to Help in study All'Tla farmers are being asked Lo give their co-operation to tl'y livestock operations sur- vey which will be carried out earlv ibis summer by the pro- vincial departments of agricul- ture environment. Brian West, animal waslo maiwatncnt specialist with the department of agriculture and co-orc'i'-ator of the survey, ex- plains that it is designed to find cut f---i. tilings as the number, size, type and location of live- stock production units in the area being surveyed and to Invcr'i'tale the effects of pres- ent manure handling and dispo- sal on the environ- ment, particularly surface and grourd water. The survey information, said Mr. is intended lo help producers to solve animal waste dispcnl problems, and to avoid Bitualinns that could lead to the necc1- "ly for more restrictive regulations. A number of pro- posed regulations have been shelved, pending results of the survey. It is felt that much more know'cdce is required on the factors which affect the poten- tial hazards associated with livcsl ock production units be- fore a decision on more restric- tive measures can be made. If more regulations are need- ed, tl-oy will (.hen be based upon aclunl conditions under which Albert n livestock producers op- erate miner than upon regula- tions that are being used in places where conditions arc en- tirely different. The latter sit- uatio'i has occurred in somi provinces. The survey has bec-n organ- ized by the livestock opera- tions committee. It consists of the ('cpiHy minister of environ- ment, Dr. E. E. Ballantync, repre.'-'-.tatives from the de- paitnrrls of environ in e n t, health and labor; agricultural livestock specialists; and numbers of several live- producer organizations. TliL! survey will be conducted on a i :nulom sample basis in a prescribed area extending from Ednv-'on in the no1 In to Cal- gary, and possibly Lellibridge, in (ho ronth. The interviews will be car- ried (v.il by summer .students workii1'! under the livestock op- committee.

Considerably more informa- tion than is at present avail- able needed to find the most way of doii'U this. Some of the factors will I'iive to be studied and eval- uated include storage, trans- and application mcth- 1 Rabies report 258 capos of posi- tive rr.Mos diagnosed in .Janu- ary by Canada Apricul t u r e i of Animals Hranch sci- enlifTs.

They also include the pre- vention of odors to surrounding areas and surface and ground water contamination. It is hoped that the survey data will shed some light on research require- ments in these areas. The questions have been de- signed to show whether there is a need for the agricultural ex- tension service to provide in- formation and courses on things that should be considered when setting up livestock operations. The committee members are In favor of the educational ra- ther than the legal approach to pollution problems and think that legislation should be used only when the situation cannot be solved uy any other means.
