I. Anderson, Chairman, Kossuth County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee, reminds interested farmers to make arrangements for extending the loans (reseal) before the original loans mature on July 31. The reseal program offers soybean producers an opportunity to hold their crop for a longer period to stabilize market prices and take advantage of any increase in demand. The last reseal program was for the 1963 crop. Practically all soybeans placed under loan in previous years were redeemed by producers. With the re seal program available, farmers have three choices in handling their 1966-crop soybeans which are under farm- stored loans. They may (1) redeem their loans, (2) deliver the soybeans to the Commodity Credit Corporation in satisfaction of their loans, or (3) reseal the soybeans and earn storage payments. Loans on resealed soybeans may be called by CCC at any time but not later than August 1, 1968. The producer's storage payment rate for resealed soybeans will be announced later.
