Plnehtr Crttk 'Your Pioneer Alberta Livestock Auction Market' Offlct 627-3466 Yard 627-3660 the relationships between the prices of grains such as barley and corn and how they affect the industry. The Alberta Cattle Feeders Association has complained that even with an import duty of per hundredweight, handling charges and freight, cattle are being brought from the northwestern US to the Lethbridge area cheaper than area ranchers can sell them. Mr. Lang, in the city to ex- plain the new federal feed grain policy to provincial government officials and farm organizations, said there is no indication of a drop in meat prices Prices levelled off recently following con- sumer resistance, "but I don't think Canadians want to eat less meat Mr. Lang said the feed grains policy is not intended to create cheap or expensive grain, but to bring about an "equitable price across the country High prices faced by Canadian cattle and hog producers reflected the world market. Mr Lang said cattlemen should not abandon their busi- ness because of high feed prices. Many cattlemen had told him they are willing to take a chance with high feed costs because the price of beef will eventually reflect feed prices. One of the major reasons for Mr. Lang's visit, his se- cond swing through the Prairies in the last 10 days, is to clear up misconceptions about feed grains policies.
