1967 Feed Groin sign up underway "Sign-tip for (ho 1067 Food Grain program hns begun and vlll encl March 3, meaning that farmers will need to decide early whether they will participate In the 1967 feed grain program or not," says Hiimboldt County Extension Director Norman Mokln- stad. Ho noted, "Farmers should study and compare potential returns under participation and non-partlclpatlon, as the program Is voluntary and each farmer much make his own decision. "If farmers own a large farm, they can divert only 20 |>ercent of their land, as there Is no provision for diversion above the 20 percent level of payment. The support price has been raised five cents over the 1966 level, and yield levels have been raised slightly In Iowa. "Because of the lack of adequate subsoil moisture In many areas in Iowa, farmers In the state may face more weather risk in 1967 than they have In the past several growing seasons. "A budget sheet, to be used in comparing the cost and returns from participation and nonparticipation Is available at the county extension office. County ASCS offices have distributed information on yield, base acreage and other Information that will be needed for studying the potential returns from participating In the program.
