12-Algona (la.) Upper Det MolnM Tuesday, Nov. 7, 1967 Price Support Reseal Extensions Announced Wheat, corn, sorghum, soybeans, oats, and barley from 1967 crops which are under price-support loans in on-farm storage or in commercial storage will be eligible for loan extensions (reseal) before the respective crop loans mature in the spring and summer of 19 68, it was announced Oct. 26 by Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman. Decisions on resealing of current crops are normally made near the end of the marketing year. This early announcement will permit better advance planning by farmers and should strengthen prices. All farmers who are eligible for price support on 1967 crops will be eligible for reseal either on the farm or in commercial storage. Storage costs accruing during the reseal period will be paid by CCC. These payments will be made to farmers who provide farm storage or who prepay warehouse storage charges for the extended period. If warehouse charges are not prepaid, CCC will make these payments for the extended period direct to the storing warehouseman. Pay- meny by CCC to the warehouseman will not relieve producers of their obligation for warehouse charges which accrued during the initial loan period. Secretary Freeman, in making the announcement, declared, "I think it's much better to establish conditions under which commodities can be carried over into the next marketing year with farmers owning the grain — on their farm, in their cooperative elevators, or in privately-owned facilities — than to have the commodities forced on the market or delivered to CCC. This action can materially strengthen prices in the year ahead. For the first time, it gives farmers in many areas a practical opportunity to use reseal. "For many years, USD A has offered reseal privileges for certain commodities stored on the farm. This program has been used as an aid to orderly marketing, especially when production exceeded expected utilization or when market prices were weak. Extension of the reseal program to commercial storage facilities will give more farmers a chance to plan long-range marketing and avoid lower prices during times when the markets are overloaded. "Tenant farmers who could not build their own storage can now place their commodities under loan in commercial warehouses and continue the loan under reseal there. "Because the overwhelming grain surpluses from prior years have been eliminated by our acreage diversion programs since 1961, many grain elevators now have adequate storage space available." The commercial reseal program will be available to eligible producers in all areas. Producers may redeem reseal commodities at any time and dispose of such commodities as desired. Under the 1967-crop reseal program, price-support loans on stored commodities will be extended beyond the 1968 maturity dates until called. CCC retains the option to call reseal loans at any time the stocks are needed. Storage rates on the 1967 crops now eligible for reseal loan extensions will be announced later and will be available at State and county ASCS offices. Farm storage charges paid by CCC will Algona Theatre ENDS TUESDAY - November 7th '"YOU ARE GOING TO ENJOY 'ALFIE' VERY MUCH." 1 PARAMOUNT PICTURES im'sonts LIFE Magazine ALFiE '(RECOMMENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES) Admission — Adults $1.25 TECHNICOLOR" CINEMA ARTS FILM FESTIVAL WEDNESDAY - 8 P.M.
