By itic swimuT Staff Writer A S2V-: miliiun grain corn market in British Columbia can be wrested from the U.S. by in- creasing production in southern Alberta. This is the feeling of two offi- cials of the provincial and fed- eral departments of agriculture in Lethbridge following the suc- cessful completion of southern Alberta's acre grain corn harvest. Alberta can dLsplp.cc the two- million bushel U.S. corn mar- ket in Western Canada by in- creasing com acreages to 000, said Dr. Stan Freyman, fin agronomist specializing in corn culture at the Lolh.br id go He- search Station and secretary of the Alberta Corn Committee. "All we need is more grow- ers and higher ho said. "We don't have to worry about a corn glut in Western Canada until the acreages reach the 30.000 mark in southern Alberta." Grain corn, a cash crop, is corn that has been grown and allowed to mature on the cob while stiil in (he field and then is harvested as gram. Silage corn, the other agri- cultural variety, is grown as forage material to be used as high energy roughage for cat- tle. It is harvested the middle of September. Ralph Trimmer, regional su- pervisor for the plant industry division of the Aiberta depart ment of agriculture and chair- man of the Alberta Corn Com- mittee, said southern Alberta corn production this year will amount to about 120.000 bush- els. "The yields this year aver- aged 65 lo 70 bushels, but some growers like Joe Kacer at Cran- Jord and Joe Kusalik at Grassy Lake had some fields run at JOO plus bushels per he said. Mr. Trimmer, who coordin- ates activities between the two government bodies, said Lhero are about 20 growers in south- ern Alberta in the irrigation belt from Coaldale to Medicine Hat. The market for southern Al- berta grain corn is primarily B.C., where it is used mainh by feed mills in the production of mixed poultry rations. This industry uses about one mil- lion bushels each year. The distilling industry in Westminster. EC. uses another bushels of grain corn during a full year of produc- tion. At present the majority ol corn supplies for this marke: are imported from Minnesota and only one sixteenth of the market is supplied from south- em Alberta.

"There aren't any customs problems with southern Alber- ta corn, either." said Dr. Frev- inan. He said there is a revival in the grain corn industry in southern Alhcrta with 1B7! nnlv the second year grain corn has been grown al commerc i a 1 recruit Twenty SLN Univcrsiiy of Lethbridge students IKIVC fin- ished a student recruitment program at nine Western Ca- nadian universities. Ail idea initiated by the stu- dent council and financed by the U of L board of gover- nors, the program was offi- cially termed "information dissemination." Alter gaining acceptance, the council was allocated 000. Students made one-week visits to universities in Win- nipeg, Brardon, Regina. Sas- katoon Edmonton. Calgary, Burnaby, Vancouver and Vic- toria. Students participating in the program are expected to re- port to the board of gover- nors at its next regular meet- ing. Dec. 21. Jack Oviatt. registrar, said he was aware the students were doing it but said lie didn't think it was official. He said he could seo noth- ing wrong if the students chose to do it themselves. Another official who appar- ently condoned the action was quoted as saying "I know we'd be mad as hell if other universities were doing that amounts since the move toward the crop. He said the peak for grain corn in sou'hern Alhcrta was 1921) v.hcn there were acres grown, This dropped to 2.000 acres in 1940 due mainly to the impact of small grain machinery, winch the j'gricultiiral industry out- side corn production. He .said the acceptance of cus- tom combine units and custom corn drying units has helped keep ihc cost fac- tor for the crop down. "Preferably, the grain corn is taken right from the com- bine to the grain dryer, which uses hot air fired by propane to dry thi- grain kernel to 14.5 per cent said Dr. Freyman. The grain eniors the dryer, is circulated until the desired moisture level is reached and then angered back to the truck. Once dry, it is ready for the market. Eventually, most of it ends up in British Columbia for the feed milling industry. Corn prices hit 3971 lov.-s in Ontario summer, and hava stayed a! about bush- el. One southern Alberta grow- er, however, sold his entire corn crop for SI.-10 per bushel. Since the cost of production of an acre of grain corn in southern Alberta is about this farmer realized per acre clear profit with a 100- bushel-por-acre yield. BEAT DRY WiNTER HEAT!
