Manager GARYJENSEN in milk prices at the consumer level is bound to increase sales "The thing that concerns many of us is the fact that this increase in sales is coming at a time of reported sharp drops Cattle dumping opposed WEYBURN. Sask. (CP) Livestock producers favor free trade but are opposed to the dumping of U S cattle on the Canadian market, the an- nual meeting of the local branch of the Saskatchewan Stockgrowers Association was told Thursday night. Chuck Davis, manager of the Prairie Feeders lot at Pilot Butte, said 86 per cent of the cattle slaughtered last week in Eastern Canada were from the United States. He charged that governments have been mess- ing around in the cattle business and using it as a political football Now livestock producers don't know where they are at and it is almost impossible to buy feed grains, he said. Boyd Anderson of Fir Moun- tain, a director of the Cana- dian Cattlemen's Association, said US. cattle were slaughtered in Eastern Panada last week and another 15.000 will probably be slaughtered this week.

Livestock to market HELENA, Mont. (AP) By all indications, many of Montana's cattle will not be home on the range much longer. The state livestock department estimates one million will be en route to feed lots in the waning days of 1973 The heavy movement of beef is attributed to marketing uncertainty earlier this year and severe con- ditions in the western part of the state. in milk production, particular- ly in the Fraser Mr. Aylard said "A lot of dairy farmers are out. or getting out of the business because they are los- ing money Grain and hay costs have shot up dramatical- ly during the past said Mr Aylard, who operates a herd of 50 milk cows He said the interim answer to the dairy industry's cost problems is payment of a sub- sidy by the provincial govern- ment at the producer level. "My own feed costs have gone up a month since a year ago What is needed to see us over this critical period is a subsidy at the producer level. ENCOURAGEMENT "A subsidy of to a hundredweight wbuld, I believe, see us over the fix we're in at the present time He said a subsidy would en- courage frustrated dairy farmers to keep operating un- til feed prices have stabilized and maintain production. "Otherwise, I'm afraid lowering the price to con- sumers will see a real shor- tage of milk supplies." said Mr Aylard He admitted such a producer subsidy would pose a problem in relation to the con- sumer subsidy, which is being paid by the federal government Unless the proposed producer subsidy is borne completely by the provincial government it could wipe out the four-cent a quart drop to the consumer, Mr. Aylard said Dividends Dividends are quarterly un- less otherwise noted Dale Ross Holdings Co.

The barley, aboard the Rus- sian ship Kalpifjk, will leave grain exports from the port this season at about 19 million bushels, down 6.1 million from last year's level. The record shipment out of Churchill is 25.4 million bushels in 1971. The 1.500-ton U.S. bank rates dip NEW YORK (AP) The second and fifth largest banks in the United States announc- ed today that they were lower- ing their prime lending rate to per cent from the present record high 10 per cent The decrease in the prime, the rate banks charge their most credit worthy corporate customers, is the first by ma- jor U S banks in nearly two years. First National City Bank and Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., both of New York, said .they were taking the action in line with recent drops in rates for short term loans, on which they rely for income. Russian vessel will be the 33rd out of port this season. Of those. 24 carried grain for the U.S.S.R. F T. Rowan, special sales representative for the Cana- dian Wheat Board, said, "our Churchill clearances this season are not as high as we had hoped "But considering the late opening and the extensive delays resulting from rail stoppages this summer, the actual quantities of grain moved through Churchill this year is still very impressive." Mr. Rowan, in a statement issued in Winnipeg, noted the first vessel did not arrive until Aug. 5. the latest opening of the Hudson Bay port since 1949, and the rail work stop- pages meant loss of 10 work- ing days. SHORT SEASON "This meant that the actual working season as much shorter than normal. The men working the grain in Churchill deserve a lot of credit for getting as much grain through the port as they did They worked long hours, irregular shifts and weekends to get the job done This was the third season that barley was shifted through Churchill. Barley ac- counted for 8 5 million bushels of the total grain clearances in 1973.
