6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Maine* Tuesday, Oct. 3, 1967 FARM PAGE mvjBBig«mwji»ft^^ New Premium, Discount Slate For Corn Support The loan rate basis, as well as the schedule of premiums and discounts used In the corn price-support program, has been revised for the 1967 crop, according to Richard I. Anderson, chairman of the county ASCS committee. The new premium and discount schedule is patterned after that used in market trading. Under the new county loan rate schedule, loans and settlement will now be based on No. 2 grade corn instead of the modified No. 3 grade used in the past. As a result of the change to the higher grade basis, county loan rates for 1967-crop corn will be increased by 2 cents a bushel in relation to the national average loan rate. This means that, with the 5- cent increase in the national average loan rate to $1.05 a bushel, all basic 1967 county loan rates will be higher than in 1966 by 7 cents a bushel. In the case of farm-stored corn, the new loan rate will apply in full when the loan is made. As in the past, the loan coverage for ear corn will still apply to not more than 85percent (90per- cent on shelled corn) of the total eligible volume. However, if delivery is eventually made to settle the loan, all of the eligible volume will be accepted, and the premium and discount schedule will be used to determine the final settlement value of the corn. In the case of warehouse- stored corn, loans will be made on the total quantity and actual grade and quality of eligible corn. Premiums and discounts for grade factors will be applied at the time the loan is made, and the resulting value will serve as the settlement basis in case the farmer decides to deliver the corn to the Commodity Credit Corp. Corn growers who took part in the 1967 feed grain program, and who are interested in further de~ tails concerning the new loan schedule should contact their local ASCS county office. Wheat Variety Will Determine Price Support Thirteen varieties of wheat have been designated by the U. S. Department of Agriculture as undesirable for price support purposes under the 1968-crop wheat price support program. All are listed as "undesirable" because of inferior milling or baking qualities, either in general or because some may be grown in areas where a variety is not compatible with other predominant varieties. Announcement of undesirable varieities is being made now so that farmers can plan their 1968- crop year operations. Such varieties will not be eligible for premiums and will be discounted 20 cents per bushel in the price support loan and purchase rate for 1968-crop wheat. Varieties named undesirable for the 1968 wheat price support program are: Blue Jacket, Cache (except in Utah and Idaho), Pur- kof, Red Chief (including White Seeded Red Chief), Stafford, Yogo, Henry, Kinney, Spinkcota, Gaines (when grown east of the Continental Divide), Florence, Rex, and Nured. The USDA, says Chairman Richard L Anderson, urges farmers to seed only those varieties recommended by State Extension services on the basis of experiment station results and practical experience. Program regulations for 1968, as in the past, will continue to require the producer to certify production of undesirable varieties based on his .knowledge of the varieties seeded and harvested. Because wheat varieties are difficult to determine from threshed samples, USDA in certain instances may require additional information in support of the certification. DEVELOPMENTS FROM DEVALOIS Question — In previous years I have had some problems with insect damage when storing and holding my shelled corn. What can I do to protect the corn against insects? Answer - The best way is to apply malathion or methoxychlor on walls, floors, and ceilings of clean bins, and to apply grain protectants on shelled corn as it goes into the bin. Two protectants you might use are premium grade malathion or a mixture of pyrethrins with pipperonyl butoxide. The latter does not give control of cabinet beetles, which seem to be increasing in importance. Mala- thion does control these insects, as well as other stored grain pests. Both protectants can be used safely on cereal grains to be used as food or feed. Either protectant should be mixed with water and sprayed into elevator or auger hoppers, or applied on grain as it drops into the bin. Apply one pint of 57 percent premium grade malathion diluted with three to five gallons of water per 1,000 bushels of corn. Pyre- thrins are to be applied according to the manufacturer's directions. At the same time, steps should be taken to protect your harvest from rats and mice. Cut down weeds and tall grass and eliminate piles of wood, bricks and junk that rats can use as shelter. Repair rat holes in floors. Apply a strip of 1/4 inch mesh hardware cloth two feet wide on the outside of the crib, and six inches of smooth metal above the cloth. The rat can climb up the cloth, but when he reaches the metal he drops off. This will also exclude birds. Finally, place fresh, clean anti-coagulant baits next to walls where rats run. There is little point in storing grain, unless it comes out as clean as when you put it in the bins. MEMOS FROM MARGARET Oct. S.S. Dates Social Security visitation hours in Algona for October have been announced, and a representative of the district office will be in the Kossuth Court House Oct. 12 and Oct. 26, both Thursdays, from 9:30 a. m. to 12:30 p. m. for consultation. Enrolls At LaCrosse An area student who has enrolled as a freshman at LaCrosse State is Hollee E. Krause, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert H. Krause, Route 1, Fenton. "Life is but a brief lesson and school's out before we know it" walk on LEFT FACE traffic Most of us here in Kossuth County know 4-H. We are especially proud of our 4-H'ers during National 4-H Week, September 30 to October 2. Our 4-H'ers, eight hundred of them in the county, are a part of a membership of two and three- fourths million boys and girls, and we salute the work they are doing to make a better America. But our praise does not end here. We'd like to make sure the adult 4-H'ers, the volunteer leaders, get a well deserved "pat on the back." Do you know that 134 men and women in Kossuth County give their time to 4-H club work? There are 372,000 leaders in the U. S. These dedicated Americans give their time and skills not only for 4-H club meetings, but also for project study, for teaching and educational help for members, for demonstration teams, for county fair and leader training meetings. These are just some of the activities of volunteer leaders, but we know many could recite a much longer list. We do appreciate your help and say a great big THANK YOU to you. It is because of you that 4-H can continue to mold the lives of young people. THIS ONE GOBBLES HAY AND EAR CORN Just as Fast as You Can Feed it.

Brady built it—Built it like the custom feed rigs to take the toughest abuse, day-in, day-out. That's why the switch has been to Brady.
