Lauohnn Auction Service A summary of weather con- ditions during the 1973 crop year reads like a rich man- poor man story the wet areas got wetter and the dry areas got dryer. Southern Alberta farmers reeled from drought con- ditions while their counter- parts in the northern part of the province were mired in mud from extremely high amounts of precipitation. Figures released by the Canada Department of Tran- sport for the crop season April 1 to the end of October show that practically all areas in the south received con- siderably less moisture during the crop season than normal. Cardston reported the greatest getting only about six inches com- pared to a normal amount of 14.6 inches. Fort Macleod reported the next highest drop of 5.73 down from the 13.15 inches. Pincher Creek registered only 9.65 down almost five inches from normal amounts. On the other end of the Peace River reported 18.72 inches of 9V4 inches above normal. Fort McMurray reported 21.69 nine inches above nor- mal. With the majority of the farming districts reporting either extremely dry or ex- tremely wet Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer has announced a million guaranteed loan program for farmers. The 'program allows for loans based on per acre up to a maximum of per farm. The provincial govern- ment will pay the interest on the loans for the first year.

For farmers In the dry areas of the a forage freight assistance program is being expanded. The govern- ment will pay six cents per ton per mile for forage crops haul- ed to areas of the province affected by weather. The maximum grant is per ton for hay that is hauled more than 25 miles. With many farmers ex- periencing poor crops or crops they couldn't harvest because of weather the labor assistance program for livestock facility development is also being expanded. Designed to also help alleviate farmers are eligible for a grant up to to help pay for labor to construct and im- prove livestock facilities.
