Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, October 3, 1972- POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD Manure pollution problem reality for major feedlots Cassidy is dead. No, I shouldn't say that. William Boyd is dead but Ilopalong will hop along Hie silver screen as long as movie film is permanent. William Boyd died recently in a South Lacuna Beach, Calif., hospital. He was 77. I'll never forget those great old westerns I re- member one show I saw at Magrath, The Lonsesome Cowboy From Cardston, starring William Boyd as Ilopalong Cassidy. It was all about a fellow who took a load of wheat into Lethbridge and tried to trade it for two bags of Hour and a humidifier. No one would take him up on it. Another great show was about the signing of Treaty No. 7. Hopalong persuaded the Bloods to sijm and then they all drank 7-Up. Then they all sang "It's the real and "All you need is a gat gun." Hopalong was the purest cowboy in the movies. He was as pure as his horse, Snow. Pure as the driven Snow. He used lo dazzle audiences to death Remember that little steer's head he wore to keep his neckerchief together? That little thing was worth 5100. I'll swear to it. We used to get into raging arguments about how much that thing was worth. Hopalong was the greatest. Not exactly the great- est. Tom Mix was the greatest. Buck Jones was sec- ond greatest. The Lone Stranger was third greatest and Hopalong was about fifth greatest. It was more fun to sneak into the Magrath show house. We did this by sliding down the coal chute. Then you crept up some stairs and found yourself behind the screen. Then you had to creep around in front of the stage and up the aisle. _ One night we were jast about half way up the aisle when I noticed the town policeman. He was carefully assessing Hopalong's progress. Ilopalong rode into the sunlit street and the thea- tre lighted up. We were caught, or almost caught. A voice boomed out "They went that-a-way" just as the policeman lunged at us. It's easier to slide down a coal chute than to slide up one. I got nabbed and spent most of the night sweeping up Duane's show house. But the thing I admired most about Hopalong was his six-shooter. He could get 10 or 12 or maybe 16 shots out of that six-shooter without reloading. One night we counted 21 shots, kind of a 21-gun salute to the Garden City, out of that six-shooter. And a special goodnight to the big city minister visiting Foremost who was asked to pray for rain. It came in floods, destroying some of the crops. This is what happens when you ask a man to pray for rain when he doesn't know anything about agriculture. By DR. T. G. SOMMEKFELDT Soil Scientist Lcthbridgc Research Station Manure management without contributing to soil and water pollution is a major problem of the modern feedlot operator. It has been reported that cattle in a feedlot produce about .10 tons of manure daily. In Alberta there arc about 1.5 million cattle in feedlots. Information on the extent lo which the vast amounts of manure thus produced pollute soil and water is lacking. For this reason the Lethbridge He- search Station is conducting studies at six representative feedlots to determine their con- tribution to soil and water pol- lution and to determine the ef- fects of long-time annual ap- plications of manure on the ni- trogen, phosphorus, and solu- ble-salt content of irrigated soil. In southern Alberta the cli- mate is semi-arid. At Leth- bridge, evaporation from a water surface exceeds precipi- tation by about eight inches an- nually. The surfaco soil is fro- zen for about four months of the year, and most of the pre- cipitation falls during the grow- ing season. At the feedlots there are ac- cumulations of nitrates and phosphorus in the surface soil, but the soil at depths exceeding four feet contained no more ni- b-ales and phosphorus than the soil some distance away. The nitrate content of the ground water varied with the feedlot. Generally, there was an accu- mulation of nitrate in the ground water at the feedlot, but this became dissipated within a few hundred feet. Researchers elsewhere have found that nitrates in the sat- urated subsoil at feedlots break dlwn through the. process of de- nil rificati on into harmless ni- trogen gas and oxygen. The four feedlots located near bod- ies of surface water added no measurable nitrate to the wat- er either through runoff or from lateral movement through the soil water system. In other tests conducted at the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion, it has been found that re- peated annual applications of 30 to 35 tons of barnyard man- ure per acre to one irrigated Farm TV shows to watch CBC Television will continue lo show programs of interest lo farm audiences.

Accumulations of nitrogen and phosphorus were found in the surface soil, but at the depth of one loot the phosphor- us content of the manured soil was similar to that of the near- by unmanured soil. Although nitrates move readily in tlie soil, they had been retained primarily in the surface foot of one field and in the surface four feet of the other field. These results Indicate that th9 soil is an excellent medium for the disposal of manure. Furth- er investigation should deter- mine the maximum amount of manure that can be safely ap- plied to agricultural land each year. At The Puzzled With Your Wedding Plans?
