V fla.) Upptr PM Motnai Thiifiday, Match 28, Oats Loan Rate For '57 Set At 58c Per Bushel The price support or loan rate for oats produced in Kossuth county in 1957 will be 58c per bushel, it was announced tni«| week by Virgil L. Kohlf, manager of the county ASC. The 195? rate is 5 cents lower than the 1956 crop, as a result of this year's oat being supported at 70 percent of parity instead of 76 percent as in 1956. As in past years, price support on new oats will be available through loans and purchase agreements from harvest time to next January 31. The county rate of .58 cents per bushel will apply to oats grading No. 3. A premiun of one cent per bushel will be allowed to those grading No. 2 or better ahd those testing heavy. A two-cent premium will be allowed for "extre heavy" oats, and a three-cent discount will be made for any found "garlicky". Oats is the only grain for which 1957 county loan rates have been announced. However, the national average rates for othei commodities in .1957 have been fixed at 94 cents per bushel fen barley, $1.36 per bushel for corn raised in compliance with allot* merits, $2.92 per bushel for flax. $1.83 per hundredweight for grain sorghum, $2.09 per bushel for soybeans, and $2 per bushel for wheat: Alt are a few cent? lower than for 1956 except wheat, which is the same.
