DEFICIENCY PAYMENTS FOR HOGS
The announcement by the Minister of Agriculture on October 21st that a deficiency payments program for hogs will commence on January 11th next, indicated that the basis of operation will be as follows:
1. Deficiency payments to any one producer during a 12-month period will bo limited to total marketing of 100 grade A and grade B hogs.
2. To be eligible for the payments. producers must market their hogs through federally inspected or approved grading establishments.
3. The Board will establish a national average market price which is calculated to be equivalent to the support price of $23.65 per 100 lb. for Grade A hogs at Toronto. This will be used to determine the amount of deficiency payment.
4. There will a uniform rate of payment to producers in all parts of the'couii-i try, regardless of !he acUtSPiiiav--received- by individual J producers.
i, 5. Payments will be calculated j on an -annual basis, but eonsid* : eration will be given to making ! an interim paymenPif tlfc avef-j'age market price falls substan-j tially below the support price [ during the period.
6. Payments.will be made only ! to registered hog producers, and | registration will be limited to bona fide, farmers, exclusive of commercial organizations.. j Registration ot producers," pf(f-â- paratory to the commencement of the program, .lias been underway for some time. Registration cards completed by producers will be forwarded to a data-pro-
cessing unit set up by the Department of Agriculture in Ottawa. Only one registration is permissible for each hod-producing enterprise. As hogs are marketed, a copy of each settlement form will be forwarded to the data-processing unit, and an. accumulative total maintained of the number of hogs eligible for payments which are marketed by all eligible producers, each of whom will be alloted a registration number.
LOTS OF WARM WATER FOR COWS IN WINTER
Make sure water is readily available and about 35 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter, say livestock experts with the Ontario Department of Agriculture. A
cow will take an average of 10 drinks a day if she has free access to water.
The average dairy cow drinks about 12 gallons of water a day and a heavy milker might need as much as 30 gallons â€" proof enough that to get top milk production (milk contains 87 percent water) your cows need plenty of water.
Small Accidents Are Expensive-
Each year, "little" accidents which seldom make the headlines cost Canadians more than $3,000,000 according to the All Canada Insurance Federation.
Many of these accidents occur during the winter and most could be avoided through care and attention. The Federation, which represents more than 250 Canadian fire, casualty and automobile insurance companies, makes these recommendations for winter safety around the home:
1. Keep sidewalks shovelled pnd clear of ice and snow at all times.
2.-Check exterior stairways and entrances for loose boards,
-naiis-and o'. her-d is-repairâ€"which, might cause injury.
3. Clear large icicles froni the eaves fbey can c?use serious injury when they fall.
4. Make sure that snow shovels, gaiden rakes, children's toys and similar items are kept clear of walks and not hidden .UXid.ecS^deeeptixc. layeX-Of snow.-
5. Cover accessible steam and hot water pipes which might cause burns- to the unwary.
6. Keep children away from -portable-heatei's.-stoves-and-fireplaces. i
7. Keep, hot ashes, in a metaL containerâ€"never in cardboard or wooden boxes. , â-
8. Don't ict children play hockey or other, winter games-on or near the street.

There were many indications in 1959 that Canadians were, becoming more conservation conscious.
On the local scene for instance town council gave assent to having the Upper Holland Valley Authority proceed with the proposed Fairy Lake development. This work is expected to get underway in 1960.
Figures announced this week by Lands and Forest Minister Spooner indicate an impressive increase of 59 per cent in Hise of provincial parks this year.
Figures, available show 5,128,-000 visits to parks in 1959 compared wfth 3,232,000 in 1958.
Newmarket council â€¢ forwarded a request to York County Council to approach provincial authorities, requesting consideration of Gle'nville district for a provincial park. County authorities are reported to have acted on the suggestion and it is to bo hoped the province will endorse the idea.
There-would be fnany advantages lo having a provincial park in this particular- region! First, it would be close to thd metro area and fast growing areas such as Newmarket, Aurora and
Richmond Hill. At least three major roads pass close to the proposed
site, namely Highway 11, 27, and 401. It would also be close to the proposed east-west highway to cross between Schomberg and Peterboro.
The proposed park would , benefit 'ocal- businessmen in many ways The Glenville area 1 with its rolling hills, ski trails and bushl'.nd would make an ideal park location.
The Upper Holland Valley Authority reported many im- ' provements at Anchor Park, Holland Landings as well as the Whitchurch Township Park at-Vandorf. The improved provincial park at Sibbald's Point. Lake Simcoc, drew more visitors than evef"'before".
Tremendous growth in the ' number of provincial parks has been reported over the last ; three years. Less than five i years ago Ontario bad only six ' widely separated parks. The : two main ones were Algonquin and yQuc-tic . in Northwestern Ontario." " .
The province now has-73 parks ' as well as nbout a score of other 1 areas set aside, to provide for ; future needs. It is to be hoped the Lands-Forests Department will take a good look at the Glenville area and"will consider it a most suitable location for a parr Jr. â€¢ .
