Redeption of certificates in grain is expected to be heavier this payment than was the case in the first payment. In some areas farmers or* dinarlly feed as much grain as they produce. The market price of corn at the time of payment, however, will be a determining factor as to whether farmers take cash or paymeni-in- kind. Checking of farms for compliance has been com* pleted in the past week or so. Average net farm income for Iowa in 1961 is expected to be about 10 percent high* er than in 1960, and most of it can be attributed to the new feed-grain program.

He asked Mr. Loss if he would like to ride along while he. conducted' a search of the fields. Being agreeable, Mr. Loss okayed the idea and climbed alongside Mr. Bickert, who was driving a highboy sprayer which had a seat quite a few feet above ground.
