Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Taber area farmers eligible for funds TABER (HNS) Much of the dry land crop yields in the Taber MD appear to be under the eight bushels per acre level which makes producers eligible for financial assistance under the Prairie Farm Assistance Act. Estimated crop yields provided by each municipal councillor were approved at a recent meeting of the MD council and applications for assistance have gone to the PFAA office of Canada's department of agriculture, Regina, for approval. The program involves an of- ficial inspection of the crop lands before benefits can be paid. The Taber MD is one of the few which has, to this year, opted out of the government's crop insurance hence was entitled to qualify for PFAA assistance. Commencing in 1974, the op- tion will not be continued, and all areas will fall under the crop insurance program which is designed to advan- tage farmers who suffer crop failures for a variety of causes including drought, as was the cause of poor yields this year.
