FOUR FINAL DRIVE ON CORN CONTRACTS IN CERRO GORDO McDonald at Ames Reports Half Eligible Farmers in Iowa Signed. With. 1,450 corn-hog contracts signed committee members in charge of the project In Cerro Gordo county started their cleanup canvass Monday. Each fanner who has not signed up will be given another opportunity to do so. If he does not. sign up he will be asked to -supply data as to the amount of corn and number of hogs he raises. It is estimated Cerro Gordo county has 1,700 farms coming within the scope of the born-hog program. More than 110,000 Iowa farmers, approximately 50 per cent of those considered eligible, have signed corn-hog production control contracts, Hurl McDonald of Iowa State college extension service announced Monday at Ames. Including Saturday. McDonald, assistant director of the extension service, made his estimate after an official check of contracts signed in the respective counties up to and including Saturday. Farmers are continuing to sign the contracts, agreeing to reduce production in return for cash benefit payments, at the rate of 5,000 daily, McDonald said. Benton and Kossuth counties, with. 2,000 signers each, are leaders in the signup campaign. Ten other counties, however reported 1,500 or more. 10 With 1,500. These counties are Dallas, 1,500; Crawford 1,780; Hancock 1,500; Linn 1,667; Monona 1,615; Pocahontas 1,550; Polk 1,600; Tama 1,500; Webster 1,538; Woodbury 1,800. McDonald said most of the counties now tire conducting "clean up" drives, with local corn-hog commlt- teemen visiting farmers who have not contracted for reductions. These committeemen are obtaining signatures to contracts or production information on the unsigned farms. A few counties now are beginning to organize permanent township committees, McDonald said, although some are still holding additional signup meetings for tardy signers. Explain New Rulings. Director R. H. Bliss of the extension service, also announced explanation :; of new administrative ruling's ^on. the: corn-hog 1 contracts, designed ,'to.admit more,farmers to the prb- ,--:' '~:Jibn control program benefits. ~~*Jhe 'live rulings pertain to the number of dairy cattle kept for milk, corn for silage, determination . of yield on contracted acres, cropping of abandoned winter wheat land, and transfer'of hog base to heirs of deceased producers. Bliss explained that the base for determining the estimated com yield on contracted acres has been changed from 5 to 10 years out of consideration for producers in states which have suffered in the !ast few seasons from drouth, floods, grasshoppers, chinch bugs and other conditions affecting corn yields. Will Inspect Acres. Under this ruling the township committee will Inspect the contracted acres and determine what, in. their beat judgment, would be the yield of com on such acres i n 1934 and other conditions affecting yield equal to the average of the past 10 years, Bliss explained. In making this estimate the township committee would consider fertility of land, abundance of insect pests and plant diseases, yield of crops grown on the field during the past 10 years, type of soil, drainage, erosion and other information bearing on the probable productivity of the field in 1934. . "In no event," Bliss said, "will the yield of any field be estimated at greater than 65 bushels an acre.' He added that the contracted acres must have been planted to corn at least once during the 1929-33 period. Con Keep Cows, The second ruling permits contract signers to keep as many cows for milk production or for sale of milk products as they kept in 1332 or 1932. A third ruling grants exemption to the former provision "that in all cases where corn used for silage is included in the producer's average corn acreage, the producer has to fill his silo In 1834 to the average level to which it was filled in the base period," In the following cases: If the producer, before signing the contract, has discontinued commercial production of dairy products, cattle or sheep, for which silage was used in 1932-33. Operated by Producer, · If the farm la operated in 1934 by a producer who did not operate it and use the silo in 1932-33. If the silo haa become unfit for use. If, for any reason accepted by the local corn-hog committee, the producer cannot reasonably be expected to comply with the silo filling porvisions. The ruling 1 which prohibited the contractor from Increasing In 1934 h!s total acreage of feed crops other than corn and hay has been modified to permit any increase necessary in order for the producer to plant his abandoned winter wheat land to feed crops other than corn.
