Wool Growers Deadline For Filing Jon. 31 Growers were urged today to file their applications for 1965 marketing year payments under the National Wool Act at the earliest possible date but at least by the end of January. The applications cover marketings of wool, lambs, during the calendar year 1965 for which all sales details were completed not later than Dec, 31. Richard L Anderson, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization ( and Conservation County Com- 'mittee, points out the payments represent the amount necessary to bring the national average prices received by growers up to the previously anjjgijnced incentive levels under the National Wool Act, The levels for 1965 are 62 cents a pound for shorn wool and the incentive price for pulled wool will be at a level comparable to that for shorn wool. Since payments under the program are based on the national average prices for marketings during the entire year, it is important that sales reports be as complete as possible before the average price determinations are made. That is why ASCS is stressing application filings before Jan. 31. Payments for the 1965 marketing year are scheduled to begin in April of 1966. Marketings completed after Dec. 31, 1965 are considered as 1966 market- ings and therefore will not be eligible for payments until early 1967.
