Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IITMMIDOI HPAIB 17 THE GREAT PUMPKIN Although Morylou 2, of Taber, does not exactly portray the Linus.image, certainly does have a "great pumpkin." 40 pounder was grown by John Quopp of Coaldale, and will no doubt serve as a major attraction this halloween. Photo By Brian Wilson Poultry Will Be A Good Buy For Upcoming Thanksgiving By C. S. CLARK Regional Poultry Specialist With marketings of all class- es of poultry through register- ed plants continuing at.record levels, supplies of eviscerated turkeys and chickens, in par- ticular, are more than adequate for the immediate future. All classes of young turkeys available for marketing be- tween July 1 and December 31 are estimated at 150.2 million pounds compared to 139.2 mil- lion pounds last year indicating an increase of eight per cent over 1969. It also means that unless the poultry industry is prepared to carry a greater amount of turkeys over into the new year every man, woman and child in Canada will have to eat nearly seven pounds of turkey meat in the last six months of 1970. There are going to be plenti- ful supplies of all weights of young turkeys available in lo- cal retailers. These include: ju- nior turkeys 6 to 10 pounds, young hen turkeys 10 to 16 pounds, young torn turkeys over 16 pounds. Indications are that retail prices of most popular brands of Alberta grown and pack- ed young turkeys will average several cents a pound below Thanksgiving prices last year. This .fact will undoubtedly catch the eye of most shop- pers when looking for Hie fea- tare Item for their Thanks- giving dinner this year. B r o 11 e r chicken production for all of Canada will have sur- levels last year's by nearly 56 record million pounds at December 31. This represents an increase of 11 per cent over 1969 and is a con- tinuation of the established trend by Canadians to eat more poultry meat It also indicates aggressive- ness in all phases of poultry production that enables it to be one of the few industries ft market a product at lower av erage costs resulting in lower retail prices to consumers, con trary to the accepted trend o nearly all other industries to day. 4-H Club 'Bulletin Board' PARKLAKE The Parklake 4-H Beef Club held its reorganizational meet- ing recently and will start the year on Oct.' 7.

Marefe's Vaccine Found A provisional license to manufacture a Marek's disease vaccine will likely be issued to a Canadian company soon, and if so, a vaccine against this dreaded poultry disease could be available to Cana- dian poultrymen by the end of 1D70. This announcement was iKtide by J. E. Lancaster of the Canada department of agricul- ture s health of animals branch, speaking to members of the Canadian Hatchery Fed- eration recently in Vancouver, B.C. "A license will not be issued until necessary safety and po- tency tests are Dr. Lancaster said. "Provided all these test prove satisfactory and pr vided production procedure develop as expected, (lie poi try industry can look forwan to a Marek's disease vaccin being commercially ava: able in Canada by the end this he said. "Field trials and field usag carried out in other countrie have shown that the practic results are variable. Neverth less, the overall picture is of advantage to the vaccinate groups. Marek's disease attacks organs of a chickens body, Is the most serious poultry rli case occurring in North An erica at the present time, 11 era If I AGRO-OUTLOOK By STEVE BAREHAM BILL C197 on agricultural marketing may be a much need- ed piece of legislation, but it does need some adjust- ments to ensure it acts in the best interests of the agricultural community. After continual bickering between some commodity groups and the federal government, no real concessions have been made by either side and both may have valid arguments. There is no doubt Canada could benefit from a single centralized marketing agency, provided the people making up this agency have a genuine non-vested interest in the welfare of the country's farm people. Bud Olson, federal minister of agriculture has called for ttie speedy expedition of the bill through legislative channels, saying all of Canada's 10 provincial governments are in favor of C197. Not totally true. Dr. Ed Ballantyne, Alberta's deputy minister ot agricul- ture says the province agrees in principle with1 the bill, but would like the wording improved. The Canadian Federation of Agriculture supports the in- tent of the bill, calling it a necessity in providing practical and effective means of marketing agricultural products, but stresses the legislation must operate in the best interest of te producer. Then there is the cattle industry, which feels any sort of outside interference is dangerous. Officials of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association have been very definite with condem- nation for C197 since its first stirrings. The federal government has put the CCA off at least temporarily, by saying the cattle industry could maintain self control. The poultry and swine producers in Alberta on the other land feel .they stand to gain from the terms in the bill, jut they have called for clause revisions. I can understand a specific commodity group wishing to maintain control of its product, but Canadian agriculture is just becoming too complex to have a dozen and one orga- nizations in 10 vast provinces all fighting for the lion's share of the same product. n tETHBBICGE RESEAftCH STATION i u Malting Barley DR. S. A. WELLS Cerealist Most of our barley crop is used for livestock feed but a significant amount is used for malting. Canadian maltsters 'ise.20 to 25 million bushels annually, and recently, exports of Cana- dian barley for malting have varied from 8 to 22 million bushels. Barley must be malted be- fose it can be used in the brew- ing, distilling, or food-process- ing industries. In the malting process barley is germinated for about four days under care- fully controlled conditions and then kiln-dried. During ger- mination enzymes are pro- duced that break down .com- plex proteins to simpler forms, modify the starch in the endo- sperm, and convert some starch to sugar. These simpler products can be fermented by yeasts and are more palatable and digestible in food products. To be acceptable for malt- ing, barley must be of a suit- able variety, plump, high in starch content, and capable of high and uniform germination. Thin kernels are undesirab as they are usually high in pro tein and low in starch. Imm tare, broken, peeled, weather ed, or diseased kernels do n germinate well, are not moc fled during .malting, and thi impair the quality of the mal Barley of acceptable maltin quality commands a highe price than feed barley. Fur thermore, it can be deliverec without quota restrictions accepted by a domestic mal ster. For these reasons man farmers grow a malting v riety even though the en may yield less than a feed v riety and may also prove to b unacceptable for malting. In southern Alberta the row malting variety Betz predominates although it ually yields less than the fee variety Gait. Since Betzes w released in 1960 a small but i creasing export market has d veloped for 2-row malting ba ley. In the last crop year th amounted to over 8 miUii bushels. Because most of t Canadian acreage of Betzes grown in southern Alberta th export market is economical important to the area.
