Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, November 29, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Business taxes may change PINCHER CREEK (Special) Town council is giving strong consideration to changing from the present business tax policy to one of selling business licences. Secretary treasurer Terry Lyon said under a business licence policy the town would receive the revenue earlier as the due date would be Jan. 1.

An opinion will be sought from the Pincher Creek and District Chamber of Commerce. Council is considering a 50 cent per month increase in water rates. This would amount to an increase of per billing. Coun. Bob Neish suggested that labor costs in the water department should be studied further, along with the entire rate question, so that an ad- ditional increase won't be re- quired soon. Coun.

Cattle sent back at border town By RICK SWIHART Herald Staff Reporter The first shipment of breeding cattle was turned back at the International border at Coutts Sweetgrass Wednesday as the United States import quotas started to take effect on purebred animals. Ross Brewster, federal veterinary inspector at the border, said the U.S. has stopped all imports of purebred and crossbred cattle except those of the domestic cattle breeds such as Hereford, Aberdeen Angus and Shorthorn. All exotic cattle such as Charolais, Simmental, Chianina, Maine Anjou, Blonde D'Aquitaine won't be permitted through the border until Dec. 17 and then it won't be definite, said Dr. Brewster. The first shipment turned back to Canada were crossbred Simmental cattle. James Betts, U.S. govern- ment port director in Sweetgrass, Mont, said this morning a temporary working quota on live cattle establish- ed Nov. 16 to allow U.S. of- ficials to determine exactly the number of animals brought into the U.S. was fill- ed Wednesday. Because the working quota was filled, all movement of animals south to the U.S. was stopped to allow for final calculations to be fitted into the actual quota instituted by the U.S. retroactive to Aug. 12. The working quota was designed to end Dec. 16. Mr. Betts said there is no problem with any cattle recognized as purebred animals by both the Canadian and U.S. governments as long as all the paperwork meets re- quirements. Adding to the problems of cattle movement is the government working week in Washington. D.C. Because of- ficials in the quota section of the U.S. government do not work weekends, movement is stopped Saturdays and Sun- days since port directors can't check on the progress of shipments. Mr. Betts said he tries to ad- vise all cattlemen to call about the status of the quota to save confusion when they arrive at the border. But several shipments have had to be turned back because the cattlemen arrived at a time when the quota was filled. Bob Balog. auctioneer for Perlich Bros. Auction Market in Lethbridge, said this morn- ing natural price advantages in Canada will help to limit the effect of this temporary working quota. He said few Americans have bought breeding stock which aren't purebred because the price for those animals is lower in the U.S. "Out Canadian market has said Mr. Balog. "But it is still stronger than the U.S. market in a lot of areas." Land use, rustling are topics Land use, animal diseases and cattle rustling will be dis- cussed at the annual meeting of the Southern Alberta Graz- ing Association at the Eagles' Club in Medicine Hat Dec. 10 at 1 p.m. V.
