Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, May 16, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Farmers are asked to help in study AlliTta farmers are being asked to give their co-operation to tl-e livestock operations sur- vey which will be carried out earlv this summer by the pro- vincial departments of agricul- ture pud environment. Brian West, animal waste specialist with the department of agriculture and of the survey, ex- plains that it is designed to find out tilings as the number, Bize, type and location of live- stock production units in the area being surveyed and to Inver'i'jale the effects of ent nvinure handling and dispo- sal on the environ- ment., particularly surface and grourd water. The survey information, said Mr. is intended to help producers to solve animal waste disposal problems, and to avoid situations that could lead to the "ty 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'edge is required on the factors which affect the poten- tial hazards associated with livesl ock production units be- fore n decision on more restric- tive measures can be made. If more regulations are need- ed, tl-oy will then be based upon actual conditions under which Alberta livestock producers op- crate rather than upon regula- tions that are being used in places where conditions are en- tirely different. The latter sit- uatio'i has occurred in some provinces. The survey has boon organ- ized by the livestock opera- tions committee. It consists of the deputy minister of environ- ment. Dr. E. E. Ballantyne, reprercr.tatives from the de- pal tnrr.ls of environ in e n t, healf'i and labor; agricultural livestock specialists; and numbers of several live- stock producer organizations. The survey will be conducted on a random sample basis in a prescribed area extending from Ednr-'ton in the north to Cal- gary, and possibly Lelhbridgc, In thy Toiith. The interviews will be car- ried o'.ii. by summer students work in.'I under the livestock op- committee. All have a good knowledge of livestock op- s, and the many vari- ables (hat affect a livestock prodi" Uon unit's relations h i p with its surroundings. M a n y of today's livestock waste disposal specialists be- lieve Inat animal manure should be regarded as a resource, ra- ther Lh.'m as a waste, and that It should be recycled back to the In'-d. Considerably more informa- tion than is at present avail- able is needed to find the most way of doing this. Some of the factors which will have to be studied and eval- uated include storage, trans- portation and application moth- i Rabies report Tbcvf were 258 cases of posi- tive rnbics diagnosed in Janu- ary by Canada Apricul t u r e of Animals Branch sci- entists. The largest mimltor of casrs- in Ontario, with attributed to foxos, to 30 to catlle and 19 to do Ts. Quebec had 14 cases, followed by N e w Brunswick with six; Manitoba, five; Sas- katchewan, two and Alberta, ods and ways to prevent the loss of plant nutrients in man- ure. 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 by any other means.
