MIM Maysfl Berry, $752,000 Would Be Paid Farmer* Here If All Would Sign Estimate Made ef Pstsibf* Benefits from Corn- Hog Ptogt&tn A possible $752,000 Is offered Mills county farmers through the corn-hog program of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration, according to an estimate prepared by Bruce Kllpatrlck, county agent. Mills county grows an average ot 126,000 acres of corn and markets approximately 124.000 hogs per year. If all farmers sign the corn- hog contract, hog numbers would be reduced by 25 per cent. The county would then market 93,000 hogs. In return for decreasing production the federal government would pay Mills county farmers $5 a head on those produced or a total ot $465,000. Corn acreage, assuming that all farmers signed the contract, would be reduced by at least 20 per cent. This would leave 100,800 acres In the county, the other 26,200 acres being rented by the government. Rental on these acres would be at the rate of 30 cents a bushel on the average production of that land. The average corn production of this county is 38 bushels per acre. This would mean 30 cents multiplied by 38 bushels or $11,40 an acre, a total of $287,280 for the county. Thus the corn-hog program offers Milts county farmers a chance to secure a total of $762,000 In benefit payments in addition to which they will have 80 por cent of their corn and 75 per cent of their hogs to market In the usual manner, Mr. Kllpatrlck explained. Mills county has approximately 1600 farms. If this total amount were pro-rated equally among each farm It would amount to $470. The way the plan will actually work out of course, Mr. Kll- patrlck explained, Is that various farmers, depending upon the size of their operations, will receive from $100 up to $1,000 or more in benefit payments, , v The necessary 'expenses 'incurred locally by the county corn- hog production control association after it is formed will come out ot these benefit payments but that will be a relatively email item, Mr. Kilpatrick said, The total benefit payments which the corn-hog program may bring to Iowa is estimated at approximately 75 million dollars. Mills Farmers May Tliift Week For Loans on Corn Warehousing Board Mas Been Appointed to Cafe for Applications Farmers of Mills county may begin this week making applications for corn loans Bruce Kll- patrlck, county agent, has announced. The county warehousing board appointed by the state department of agriculture, cooperating with the state corn-hog committee, is composed of C. E. Wilson, Henderson; J. F. Wearln, Malvern; C. E. Hilton, Malvern; Rudy Hopp, Olenwood; R. K. Henderson. Malvern. Sealers have been appointed and met Tuesday in Des Moines to study the farm loan plan and receive Instructions. These sealers are available to seal cribs of marketable corn on farms so the farmer may secure his loan of 45 cents a bushel using the warehousing certificate as security. Application blanks were expected to be received from the United States Department of Agriculture this week at the county agent's office for distribution to the warehouse board, banks, and other agencies, Farmers wishing to secure such a loan should apply to a member of the county warehousing board who can be reached It desired through the county agent's office. The sealer will be sent to the farm to measure the corn, compute the number of bushels and seal the crib. The farmer will sign the loan blank furnished by the sealer and will receive a warehouse certificate. The farmer may then use this certificate as security to obtain the loan from local banks or otber agencies desiring to handle this type of collateral or from a government loan agency.

Meetings to Explain Corn - Hog Program * •>**'" * "* ii—^•^•L^Jl^ll •'' "* '^ Details and Purpose of Plan to lie Discussed by Townships With the holding of a district conference on the corn-hog program in Atlantic Wednesday, Nov. 22, attended by Bruce M. Kllpatrlck. county agent, the benefits of agricultural adjustment were brought one step nearer to Mills county farmers who desire to Join In the new program. According to Mr. Kilpatrick, considerable time was spent discussing the economic situation which makes the corn-hog program desirable. Plans for putting the program Into effect in Iowa counties were discussed under the leadership of Paul Taff, assistant director of the extension service from Iowa State college. Some time was spent in dla- cussing the contract, although definite details are not yet known. The contract Is expected to be completed soon, incorporating suggestions obtained In a series of regional conferences held recently in several corn-belt towns. Printed forms probably will not be received from Washington until Dec. 1 or later, In the meantime Mr, Kllpatrlck urges farmers planning to share in the program to reduce the number of sows bred for spring farrowing by 25 per cent. This will eliminate the necessity of marketing surplus sowa after the contracts are signed- Corn producers also may be deciding what i corn acreage they wish to take out ot production to effect a ?0 per cent reduction . Township and county - wide meetings will be held in Mills county this month at which the reasons for the program, its purposes and as many details of its actual application as are now available will be explained. This will lay the ground work so that as soon aa contracts are received they may be aigued rapidly and vent to Washington so that farm- era may secure the cash, benefits as early u» possible. As soon a» contracts are avail- able details of these will be explained and farmers given a chance to sign. Signers of contracts will then meet a»d form the permanent corn-hog production control association for the eemnty. This association through Its officers and directors will hav* charge of the corn-hog program In Mills county In cooperation with officials of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration In Washington. D. C. Mr. Kllpatrlck explained that the major reason for the corn- hog program 18 that the price of farm products has not been maintained on a level equal to that of the prices paid by farmers for the things they buy. Restoring purchasing power of the farmer Is the purpose of the program. During 1910-'14 prices received by farmers were equal to the prices paid by them, measured In purchasing power. Considering the purchasing power ot farm products during that period as 100 per cent or "normal" the margin between prices paid by the farmer and prices received by him tor his products has widened until his purchasing power In 1932 was little more than 50 per cent of normal. In other words, 100 pounds of pork, beef or other products now will buy little more than half of what it would during the prewar period. During the war and after It American farmers built up a large export market when they were supplying the Allied nations with food. As foreign nations have built up their own production of wheat, pork and other products since the war, they have bought less from the United States. This has helped to depress the price of farm products In this country because of the unmarketable surplus. During the years 1920-'24 farmers exported from 18 to 18 per cent of their total prBatretfoft tst an farm frfctftrets. In 192? ttts had dropped t6 0*- twee* 8 aid i per cent. iff l»io American fartte** et- ported 26 per cent ot the hogs slaughtered nnder federal in«pec- tlo-n. By 1938 this amount had dropped to 16 per cent. At compared with the pre-war period Europe including Russia has brought 52 minion additional acres into production ot staple crops thn* cutting down the amount It needs to buy from the United States. White the United States has been losing some of this export market It has Increased its cultivated land by SO million acres since pre-war. Since Industrial wages. International trade relationships, foreign hog production and similar factors are largely out ot the control ot farmers, agricultural leaders are urging that producers focus attention on regulating American hog production over which they do have control. By regulating supply to demand the price will he increased and the farmer will make more on what he does produce than on the surplus amount he has been producing in the past few years. By means of the benefit payment on corn and hogs the government will help the farmer bridge the gap between the adjustment and the time when higher market prices are secured by the adjustment. Farmers who sign the contract will be asked to reduce the number of pigs farrowed and marketed by 25 per cent and corn acreage by 20 per cent. The government will make a benefit payment ot $6 per head on the number of hogs produced and pay a rental on corn land taken out of production at the rate of 30 cents a bushel on the average production ot 1932 and 1933.
