V.V3M Fiashfotos by Don Smith) the six Republican members of the House Agriculture Committee's Sub-committee on Livestock and Grains who urged Secretary of Agriculture Freeman to- raise the CCC resale price on feed grains and soybeans to 100 percent of parity. "Freeman should act immediately rather than sit on his authority and do nothing while corn and soybean prices continue to drop," Mayne said. The GOP group pointed out that the present policy of CCC is to sell its stocks of wheat and feed grains back into the market at only 115 percent of the loan level plus carrying charges. This is $1.21 per bushel for corn and $1.85 per cwt for grain sorghum. Soybeans are released at 105 per cent of the loan level, or $2.62 per bushel. Under the GOP proposal, government-owned corn would not be sold for less than $1.63 per bushel, soybeans for less than $3.31 per bushel, and grain sorghum for less than $2.58 per cwt. Mayne concluded, "Grain farmers have really been hurt by Secretary Freeman's unwillingness to take action to bolster sagging prices. He should raise these resale levels promptly to help improve the present grain price situation which is already critical and getting worse."
