THE NFO HAS STARTED ITS ALL-COMMODITY HOLDING ACTION The NFO is leading off with grain because it takes a longer time to have an effect than other commodities. Meat will be added at a later date and the opportune time. And milk will be added at another time SO THAT THE STRENGTH OF ALL COMMODITIES OF THE ALL- COMMODITY HOLDING ACTION WILL REACH A CLIMAX OF STRENGTH AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME. The only way farmers can stop present low farm prices is to stop selling their production, Therefore, NFO is advising its members to put a price tag on their products and hold for those prices. Be like other business people. NFO is asking all non-members to join the NFO immediately and support the efforts. NFP can not legally advise non-members or solicit the support of non-members. The NFO is not asking non-members to desert their present organization but to join NFO for the purpose of collective bargaining. Farmers .... Now you have the chance. You are either going to join the NFO and support the effort and stop those low farm prices - or continue to receive those low farm prices. The NFO realizes that fair farm prices will help all bankers as well as all local merchants, but the only way farmers can do it is to refuse to sell their products at the present low prices and then they will get their price. NFO is asking non-members to join the NFO now-because WE NEED YOU, YOUR LEADERSHIP AND YOUR PRODUCTION - so we can ALL PRICE OUR PRODUCTION TOGETHER. Contact Vic Youngwirth, President of Kossuth County NFO or any NFO member ADV.
