Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 11, H74-THE LETHMIDQE HIRALO-17 IKE WIPF JR. CUDDLES AN HOUR-OLD LAMB (LEFT) AS JACOB WIPF HERDS THE FLOCK TOWARD THE PHOTOGRAPHER. THE LAMBS ARE-THE FIRST FRUITS OF AN EXPERIMENTAL BREEDING PRO- GRAM NOW PRODUCING FALL LAMBS. Fall lambing accomplished at Hutterville By RIC SWfflART Herald Staff Writer The first crop of fall lambs in 27 years of sheep business on the Hutterville Colony 27 miles south of Lethbridge has been credited to new feed, minerals which aid breeding and five years of experimen- tation. Ike Wipf, sheepman for the Hutterite colony, says the new lambs are the second crop for about 100 ewes on the farm to be born in 1974. And he feels he can continue to increase production of lambs annually through his breeding regime. The first set of lambs was born in January.-With the use of a new creep feed that was made available only to the lambs, the young animals were weaned from their mothers in about tw6 months. The normal weaning time is three to four months. Once weaned, the ewes could be bred again. The ewes were fed Bell's breeding mineral after the birth of the lambs. They were also fed lots of green food to flush out their systems to im- prove the conception rate. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH MvtciH Building PHONE 328-76S4 The ewes were bred from April 15 to May 17 and all of them became pregnant for the second set of lambs of 1974 which started to be born the last week of September. With a gestation period of five months, the ewes will be bred again starting about Nov. 20 to start lambing again next April Ike said there were about 50 sets of twins in the January crop but only 12 sets this time. But over the year, the colony averaged more than three lambs per ewe. Ike Wipf Sr., who turned the reins of the sheep operation to Dee Jr. after 27 years in the business, said part of the secret to producing more than one set of lambs in a year is to keep the ewes in good shape. He feeds the ewes good quality hay and when they are lambing, they are given lots of oats and barley to eat. Other than seeking increas- ed production, Ike wants to capitalize on higher lamb prices through early and late lambing. On the lambs sold from the rest of the flock which were bred in traditional time periods, the lambs born in April averaged only 40 cents per pound. But the January lambs brought 52.5 cents per pound and they have been told to ex- pect nearly 60 cents per pound for the October lambs.

Rancher9 district nearly agree i on county roadway routing By D'ARCY RICKARD Herald District Editor CLARESHOLM Fort Macleod rancher Jane Whip- pie told the Willow Creek Municipal District council Wednesday she likes "to keep an ace in the hole." The skirmish was over roads. The MD council's ace in the hole is a registered road allowance that runs through Mrs. Whipple's cow pasture. The Whipple well on which she once tacked a no tresspassing sign, is reached by an oiled road. But once you cross the texas gate on that road, you're on her ranch. Then you proceed along a road that was surveyed years ago "but was never paid for. It "dead ends" farther west at a farm. Today several families north of Che Willow Creek use that section of road to get to Fort Macleod.' An MD councillor said after Wednesday's meeting that Mrs. Whipple wants the MD to build a new road about three miles from her land to serve these families. But the MD won't go three miles away. The MD council Wednesday told Mrs. Whipple it will lengthen its oiled road by constructing a new section through her cow pasture. Wednesday's episode was hard to follow. Mrs. Whipple, waving a copy of Weekend Magazine, in which she was the subject of a story, and circling the council table, gave a good performance. One moment she said she had been defamed by the Weekend story. The next moment she said her neighbors were trying to put her off her farm. "If they think they are going to put me off the farm they Warner County population gets 'unfair grant9 WARNER (Staff) Coiin. Elda Mueller Tuesday, com- plained that the provincial government's recreation grant structure is unfair. She repeated her earlier stand that towns in the county get the lion's share of project co operation and special recreation grants. Both incorporated towns and incorporated counties get a minimum of for recrea- tion under the programs. That leaves the north region of the county sharing only county funds some although the population there is more than Sugar plant is open PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) Sugar beet processing is now under way at the Cana- dian Sugar Factories plant here. There have been some fac- tory changes. Sugar spinners are now automatic. The last of the manual brown spinners has been replaced with an automatic machine. Dust collecting at the sugar end has been improved. The dry pulp section of the mill has been upgraded. A new dust collecting system has been installed. Another pelleting machine has been added. Conveyors transfer pulp to the pellet mill instead 'of the pneumatic method used before. Waste materials from the lime kiln will be handled by a conveyor belt instead of being disposed manually. The changes improve work- ing conditions and reduce the fire hazard. Each town in the southern portion gets plus its J250 share of the county funds, she said. "I mentioned Stirling before when I got upset about said Coun. Mueller. "I shouldn't have mentioned any particular town because the reporter picked it up and peo- ple got the wrong idea. It's the setup that's wrong." She says the bigger-centres always seem to win out with recreation grant programs. However, a government of- ficial at Edmonton said' Wednesday that residents of outlying areas should enter town recreation programs. "This recreation program of grants and so on isn't just money, it's also based on shar- ing he said "Yon have to share human resources. Each incorporated area can apply for the basic capital grant, but villages and outlying areas should pool their resources." This year the provincial government will" separate its cheques, one for the basic pro- ject co operation capital grant, and the other for the per capita funds available. are just barking up the wrong she said. Her opening shot was vague "the road that led to the old well, the first well." Reeve George Whitehead got into the act. "Do you have anything in he asked. "When I came up the last time about the well, you said the road belonged to me. I could do anything I like with the road. That is on the she said. Waving Weekend, Mrs. Whipple exhibited the illustration, "Does it look like me? I would say it's a v caricature." Asked Coun. Wallace Daley of Granum: "Were you inter- viewed by that "It's the child of someone's fertile said Mrs. Whipple, adding that someone sent someone to the ranch in the guise of a friend and got the information by devious means. Said Reeve Whitehead: "When I read it I wondered where they got it from." "It's positively dis- said Mrs. Whipple "I am ashamed of it. Even my fingernails are dirty in the magazine illustration. What have I done to warrant Asked Reeve Whitehead: "Are you blaming us? We thought maybe it came from your lawyer or someone. I don't know where came from." "I don't said Mrs. Whipple. "Is it just this part of the asked Reeve Whitehead. "I am just about at the end of my replied Mrs. Whipple, circling the table and scanning a map someone has hastily taped on the wall. The reeve tapped the pointer along the registered road allowance through her cow pasture. Said Coun. Harvey Cherniak of Stavely: "You want us to tear up more land if we go the other Mrs. Whipple switched to a request for a road grader.

"I want a feasible, halfway decent she said, ap- parently back on the road. Then back on Weekend "It's defamation of character. I am not pleased." But Reeve Whitehead wanted a decision. "What is the solution there? Do you want us to go around this way or do you want to sell this. The thing is, do you want this torn up through your hay said Mrs. Whipple. "Can we buy this off indicating beyond the teias gate. "I have got to have ah ace in the said Mrs. Whipple. "You can use it, yes, but I am not going to sell it to "Will you give us that in said the reeve. "Yes, but it can't be said Mrs. Whip- pie She may save the cow pasture by trading her road for the road the MD threatens to build. "Could we get this one and turn the road allowance over to the reeve. Said Mrs. Whipple: "It seems like a good solution but my brain is in a whirl. I have had too "You think that over so that you will have your title and we will have our said Reeve Whitehead. "All I want is to be left the rancher said. EVER-LITE Of CTIttC LTD.
