16-Algono, (la.) Upper Des Moine$ Tuesday, July 25, 1967 $3,151,300 Feed Grain Payment For Kossuth "We will begin making final payments to farmers participating in the 1967 Feed Grain Program Monday, Aug. 14," announced R. I. Anderson, chairman of the Kossuth ASC county committee. Late planting and replanting due to floods and storm damage in parts of the state has caused payments to be a little later than past years. The Iowa ASC State Committee, in the interest of treating all participating farmers the same, has selected August 14 to give those who were hurt by adverse weather enough time to complete compliance certification. Payments will arrive in time for current expenses; cost of replanting in some cases; and well ahead of the September due date for the second installment on property taxes. The payments will cover both diversion and price-support payments. The diversion payments were available only for small farms (farms with feed grain bases of 25 acres or less) and farms with larger bases if the operator chose at time of signup to plant no feed grain. Growers had the opportunity at signup time in the spring - to request an advance payment of one-half the estimated total payment to be earned under the program. Where this was done, the payment now available represents the balance of the payment due for participation in the 1967 feed grain program. In total, these payments are estimated at about $3,151,300for the expected 4300 county participants in the 1967 feed grain program. The payments will raise returns from the 1967 corn and grain sorghum crops substantially. Farmers participating in the program are also eligible for loans on their entire 1967 crops of the two grains; national average loan rates are $1.05 per bushel for corn and $1.61 her hundredweight for grain sorghum.
