Dr. John Alman, president Nupork Livestock Ltd. of Cal- gary, a hog management con- suiting firm, met livestock pro- ducers, prospective investors and industry officials to discuss a proposed 10-year project which would involve a initial capital investment in- creasing to almost million by the I0th year. Dr. Alman has developed an animal which he claims will provide producers with a 20 per cent increase in investment. His hogs average 10 pounds more meat per animal, provide bigger pork chops and bacon which is leaner than any now available. He is seeking an Alberta site for his pilot marketing project and the Lethbridge area is be- ing considered. Through nutrition, sanitation and environmental controls, his hogs are free of the common pig diseases. A local packing plant manager told The Herald: "The bacon is so lean it's almost un- believable comparing it with the general run of hogs." Other industry officials said there is great promise for the lean hog and a Calgary packing house official said "Ihe indus- try as a whole should be striv- ing for leaner hogs." The initial development would involve a 113-sow operation, producing pigs a year for market. It would increase over 10 years to a opera- tion producing market pigs a year.

Pork chops will have up to twice as much meat. How will this be possible? By continued development of lean- er hogs. There are such hogs now that have tliese desirable character- istics.

Nupork is at the stage now where it wants to cull the best gilts from the for breed- ing purposes and establish a stabilized lean market hog which will consistently provide more desirable qualities. Hogs now have been develop- ed to the stage where they pro- vide 50 to BO per cent meat in bacon compared with the aver- age carcass which produces five to 30 per cent lean bacon. Nupork animals have 11 to 15 pounds of loin compared with the average carcass of eight to 1] pounds and pork chops are square inches com- pared with the average of four square inches. Pork consumers, producers, processors and scientists are in general agreement the trend to the leaner hog is fast approach- ing- There are several problems which have to be overcome if the lean hog is going to get to the consumer. Nupork has some of [he an- sivers and is working on the others. How long will it take before there arc sufficient lean ani- mals to satisfy the market? It has taken Dr. John Alman, president of Nupork, 20 years to get to this stage. He has a project in mind which could satisfy the Letlibridge market in about 10 years. If sufficient financing were available (and this could result from consumer demand and pressures) produc- tion could be accelerated. Dr. Alman is ready to go on a pilot project. Funds are need- ed.

The board or governors has authorized ils finance direclor to ask Hie colleges commission (a include the mon- ey in the next over-all capital budget lor the college. A commission member and LCC officials met earlier this year, with the City of Leth- bridgc to discuss the possibil- ity of constructing a joint city- college arena to replace an arena destroyed by fire last year. Tlie college feels that a joint venture would insure the maxi- mum use of a new arena's fa- cilities. City Alderman Vauglian Hembroff, chairman of the city's arena review and devel- opment committee, says notn- ing concrete lias been decided. He said tlie conunittee is re- viewing nil proposals put forth. It hopes to arrive at a deci- sion, in principle, of where and how to proceed with arena planning. Gordon Colledge, LCC infor- mation officer, feels any city decision will rest upon whether the new Progressive Conserva- tive government, to be instal- led Sept. 10, will follow up a Social Credit election promise to provide a per capita grant for the construction of recreational facilities. The per capita grant, if ap- proved, will mean an addi- tional in the city's rec- reation coffers. Aid. Hembroff said any arena proposal decided upon would probably cost between iHKl and He added the committee Is in no huny to bring a hasty pro- posal before city council be- cause the Henderson Park communily ice centre will provide residents with an al- ternative facility until a new arena is constructed. The community ice centre, now under construction, is slat- ed for completion in late Octo- ber in time for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings to start their sea- I son. Information trailer open Incentives still apply here In English it's DREE; in French it becomes MEER. DREE is the department of regional economic expansion, or le ministere de 1'expansion cconomique regionale. An information trailer com- plete with a slide presentation and pamphlets outlining the department's programs is cur- rently in Lefhbridge. Included under the depart- ment are the Fund for Rural Economic Development Act the Agricultural and Rural Development Act the Prairie Farn: Rehabilitation Act the Canada Land Act the Canada N e w s t a r t Program and Special Area Programs. The department is also re- sponsible for incentives to in- dustry in designated regions and special areas across Can- ada. This is the second year for the information trailer's tour of Canada. The slide program this year has been modified from last year's general approach to include a portion relating to the particular area in wluch the trailer is appearing. In Lethbridge, the show has a section showing several local developments (including Kai- nai Industries Ltd. and the Swift meat processing plant) that have received federal in- centive grants. Don Kirk, head of the re- search and evaluation unit of the public information division of the department of regional economic expansion, said pulj- lic response on the tour has been good. The department felt cruite strongly that development does take place in isolation from community at large and that to be effective it has to as possible within the coiranun- be part of a total community effort, he said. For this reason it was neces- sary to make as many people million pilot project The lean hog production pilot claims that by the 9th year of City seeks engineering director Applications are being taken by the City of Lethbridge for the position of engineering di- rector.
