Page 20 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 30, 1988 Quality Of Grain Important FARM STORED GRAIN Just a reminder to producers with CCC Commodity Joans and grain reserve agreements that the quality and condition of your stored grain is your responsibility. Also, remember that no grain under loan with CCC can be moved or fed without prior authorization from the county office. Until the grain is sold or delivered, we urge producers with corn to check the corn at least twice a month. The surface of the grain should be stirred once a month to prevent crusting. Keeping grain in good condition is an important responsibility. NEW CORN AND SOYBEAN LOANS Producers may obtain corn and soybean loans thru May 31 for eligible 1987 crop grain. PIK and Roll is still an excellent option for those producers who are marketing grain that has not been under loan. ACR REQUIREMENT All land used as set-aside (ACR) must have been planted to a row crop, small grain, or used as set-aside in two of the previous three years. If it was set-aside last year, it will probably qualify for set-aside this year. APPOINTMENTS We are encouraging farmers to schedule appointments for obtaining farm worksheets and actual program signup. By scheduling an appointment, someone will be ready to explain the program provisions and answer your questions when you arrive. We hope this method will make it better for all concerned. You can call for an appointment at 753-4705. Signup for the feed grain and wheat programs is Feb. 16 through AprillS. MEASUREMENT SERVICE All farmers who participate in the farm programs are en- ASCS News By Dan Duttlinger couraged to use measurement service. This ASCS service provides acreage compliance to farmers and eliminates farmer measuring mistakes. Appointments for measurement service are being taken. Producers wanting measurement service can request an ASCS reporter to flag the ground or obtain the needed footage to stake the ground themselves. We are planning to have at least three people available for field measurements. This should ensure that the measurements are completed timely. FAILED ACREAGE Farmers who have planted wheat, or will plant a spring seeded crop may file for failed acreage if the crop dies out for reasons beyond the producer's control. Failed acreage credit allows the farmer to use that acreage as program crop acreage for deficiency purposes and history credit. Application must be made at the ASCS office prior to destroying the crop so that a field visit can be made. MOVER GRAIN — REINSTATED WAREHOUSE Moyer Grain Company, Inc., has been reinstated to the approved warehouse list for Commodity Credit Corpora- tion/ASCS loan grain. This means that grain stored at Moyer Grain in Star City is again eligible for CCC loans. Also, they are able to receive loan transfers (farm stored to warehouse stored) or matured loan deliveries. 1987 MID CORN PAYMENT The mid-1987 corn deficiency payment was mailed last week. The entire payment was made in Commodity (PIK) Certificates. This certificate is the balance of the 1987 deficiency subject to the payment limit. This payment plus advances paid last" spring should total $.75 per bushel for the acres of corn harvested for 1987. A final 1987 crop corn deficiency payment of up to $.46 per bushel is payable in October if the 12-month average market price is less than $2.28 per bushel. ALL SET-ASIDE SEEDED BY JUNE1 The Cass County ASC Committee has established June 1 as the final date to seed set-aside (ACR) ground for the 1988 feed grain and wheat programs. All program participants are encouraged to seed their set-aside ground early in hopes of getting a good cover established. Eligible set-aside covers are small grains and/or annual or biannual grasses or legumes, excluding grain sorghum and soybeans. SMALL GRAINS ON SET-ASIDE Small grains that are on set- aside acres must be clipped before the grain matures (hard dough stage) or you may choose to pay a $10 inspection fee to allow the small grain to mature and reseed. When using the re- seeding option, you must lightly disc the ground by Aug. 31. These provisions cover both fall and spring seeded small grains. White Co.

Setting Own Prices Tempting WASHINGTON (AP) - The idea of cooperatively setting their own prices has tantalized farmers for generations. Who needs government price supports when processors and consumers can be made to pay more? For the most part, it has been the stuff of dreams. But in some instances, cooperative action has been put into effect. There have been significant bargaining strides in fruit, vegetable and nut production, and dairy has had some success, says the Agriculture Department. The joining of producers in bargaining efforts is "a relatively low-cost form of collective action," says Randall E. Torgerson, administrator of the department's Agricultural Cooperative Service. "Current organizational activity is found in wine grapes and walnuts," he says. "It also has potential in the poultry and livestock industries where contracting is prevalent or increasing." So far, however, effective collective bargaining by farmers to set commodity prices has not blanketed the U.S. agricultural sector. It has not, for example, set hard-rock prices for each season's crop of wheat or corn, soybeans or cotton. The National Farmers Organization, NFO, historically advocated "holding actions" to get better prices. The American Agriculture Movement, AAM, in its early stage called for a "strike" by farmers. Other major farm organizations, such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Farmers Union and the National Grange, currently share more traditional views ranging from market-oriented production to some form of federal supply managment. Torgerson notes in the current issue of Farmer Cooperatives magazine that farmers "have invariably encountered resistance from processors when organizing for cooperative bargaining." That led to passage of the federal Agricultural Fair Practices Act in 1968 and to new state laws, U.S. farmers Where they live in percent* Northeast Midwest 44% West 15% South 36% *Does not add to 100% due to rounding '\O Chicago Tribune Graphic by Kevin Boyd Source: U.S. Census Bureau including recent legislation in California and Maine. But the key to success of collective bargaining associations "is a committed membership willing to hold the line during the difficult negotiation session, "he said. LOW WATER PRESSURE?
