Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta EIGHT THE - LETIIRRTDGE DAlcY HERALD OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (ppnjd-Nute to Crack by the U. F. A., by S. S. Dunb,asn, Ex Vice-Pros.) CREDIT AND SEED GRAIN : Ijast evening we attended a large meeting of farmers at the East Leth-bridge "Local. The question under consideration was "Irrigation Problems." The guest of honor at the meeting -was P. H. Fetors the Commissioner of Irrigation. After his careful presentation of the general sit- uation and after his having answered rdany questions; and after the writer, as the Solicitor of the Water Users Association, had been put upon the stand and pumped dry as to the legal phases of the situation, one rather studious old farmer friend casually passed the remark, "It seems to me that it's up to the farmers." Notwithstanding all of the .patience and explanation of Mr. Peters; notwithstanding his desire as a representative of the Government to give all assistance that is possible, and notwithstanding our own very learned (?) diagnosis of the case, we left the meeting with that expression ringing in our ears, "it's up to the farmers." And when we got home, late at night and sought the welcome rest of our pillow; still this 'rather nnpoetlc expression continued to linger in our mind "It's up to the farmers." �. 1); fed on barley and 'feed flour gained 1,4 lbs. per day at a cost ot $10.40 per hundred pounds of gain. The Jot fed on barley and pigweed (No. 2) gained .85 lbs per day at a cost of ?14.02 per hundred pounds of gain. The lot fed barley, feed flour and "pigweed (No. 3) gained IS lbs. per day at a cost of, $12.50 per hundred pounds ot gain. The lot fed pure pigweed did not gain at all and had to be put on to a different feed after about ton days or they would soon have died. Now, a casual observer seeing Lots 2 and 3 without comparing them with Lot 1, would say that they were eating the pigweed and in healthy condition and apparently doing fairly well, and would perhaps jump to the conclusion ! that the pigweed was proving a sat-jisfactory food. But when these lots I are compared with the first lot, we find that the pigweed reduced greatly SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1918 feeding to j>lgs. Where apparently satisfactory results are obtained the pigs must be making thoir gains entirely on other feeds, 8Uchvas graine of whont, in tho pigweed, or other feeds which are; giyen m -addition to the^l weed seeds: � ,. , , , ,. - - , 1 the- dally gain as compared to that th,r in thP cire-wlied farmer. we 1 T of tho Executive �t ^ on a goo(1 raUtm nnd that ,t in. that in tne organized, farmers we "^. palls and 10(Wb. fiaisT^ I Trie Guaranteed B WTnT? f Canada, LlmltM,,-' 3S0b , Deposit the extra you have on hand now-you can open in account vita any sum, down to one dollar-and drav tntaraatqalt.

There is considerable difference of opininn among, farmers in. regard to whether pigweed seeds i.e. the seeds of .the common, weed, known as pigweed or lambsqiiarters, have any appreciable value for feeding live stock. On many farms these seeds were used for feed last year -and good returns claimed. Elevator companies bought these seeds at from $10.00 per ton up, and exported them, presumably for feeding purposes. To get some accurate data on the subject, an experiment was.undertaken At: Brandon Ex~ perimcntal Farm during the winter of 191S. Three Iol>- of pigs weighing about. 150 to 175 pounds earh wore fed, 1st", on barley and feed flour !i to 2nd, (jartoy ami boiled pigweed need, 3 to 1, and .'Ini, barley.' boiled pin weed 5-i;fUK unr\ 'fpV.'iI flour 1 1-2 to .1 1-2 to 1.
