FARMER: U you did not read "On Missco Farms", by County Agent Keith Bilbrcy on May 5th, we quote below what he had to say in regard to the storage of Soybeans in Arkansas: "As furfher proof that Arkansas farmers ore not storing much of their soybean crop I have this recent report from the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, Washington, D. C. 'Of the 44,000,000 bushels of soybeans in farm storage April 1, one third of that total, nearly 15,000,000 bushels, are stored in Illinois. 8,000,000 bushels are in Iowa, 6.3 million bushels in Indiana, and 1,000,000 bushels in North Carolina.' Arkansas' farm storage was not even mentioned." As you know, the Government will loan you 85ft of the purchase price of each storage bin that you erect on your farm, and will finance it over a period of 5 years at <!',,' interest. If more farmers of Mississippi County had purchased storage bins last Fall they could have sold their beans for 25 to 50% more money than they received on the open market, A few weeks ago the I'MA Office announced that the Government Program for financing farm storage, would end June 30, 1950. You know there is no support price on soybeans at the present lime.and, of course we hope as do you, that there will | )e Ollc in tnc f,, Ulre . However, we think it would pay any farmer to have storage for at least Half of his crop, whether or not there arc Government support prices. With the large acreage of soybeans (his year, plus the-delay you might encounter in getting them lo market, the market may be flooded and thus result in lower prices.
