Offer 50% Diversion In Feed Grain Acres, 1968 Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman recently announced that farmers may divert up to half of their feed grain (corn and grain sorghum) base acres to conserving uses under the 1968 Feed Grain Program. "By providing the most attractive program we ever had in feed grains, one that alms at diverting at least 30 million acres - 10 million more than were actually diverted in 1967 - ", Freeman said. "We are doing what the New Era farm programs enacted in 1965 were designed to do tailor supply to demand in order to increase farm prices and prevent costly surpluses." Information received by the Iowa Agricultural Stabilization 'and Conservation (ASC) State Committee indicates that the program is similar to the 1966 program except that small increases in the corn loan rate and projected vields should provide . higher payments for most farms. Following are pertinent details: (1) Farmers may elect to divert up to fifty percent of their base acres. (2) The first twenty percent will be without payment. (This is no change from previous years). (3) Diversion payments will be made on diversion between twenty and fifty percent of the diverted base acres. (4) Small farm provisions are unchanged. Farmers with feed grain bases of twenty-five acres or less may divert their entire base for diversion payments. Price support payments, the direct payment made to participating farmers, will be calculated by multiplying 30 cents per bushel times the projected yield times the planted acreage up to half of the farm's base acres.
