2—Algona (la.) Upper D*» Moinei Tuesday, August 1, 1967 Elect ASCS Committee Members In September 7 Hurt In Rash Of Area Accidents ASC community committees should always be the "best people available," according to R.L Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee. Slates of nominees for membership on ASC community committees soon will be established at the ASCS county office. The community committee elections will be held the third week in September. "The committee system is the backbone of the farm programs," the Chairman declared, "Its responsibilities include the conservation of natural resources, the stabilization of agricultural commodities, and price-support activities which protect and improve farm income. We need the best possible cross-section of farmers to insure effective administration of the various measures," m Kossuth county, Mr. Anderson explained, 4200 farmers took part last year in one or more programs administered by ASC committees. Funds disbursed under the Committee's super- Tision amounted to $14,302,400. Of this amount, $9,755,395 was for price-support loans aimed at increasing market returns above what farmers would receive oa an unsupported market Included in the price-support program in this county are such major commodity programs as corn, beans and oats. Last year, 30,034 acres of farmland were improved under the Agricultural Conservation Program cost-sharing arrangement. The total investment in conservation was about $122,517. with about half coming from the participating farmer and the balance from AC P. 2208 farmers in Kossuth county participated in the voluntary 1967 Feed Grain Program. They diverted 45,846 acres from corn and grain sorghum production to soil, water and wildlife conserving grass cover. Price support and diversion payments will amount to a total of about $3,151,300 in 1967. Diversion payments were made only to small farms.
