Advice With warmer weather ahead, t is advisable for farmers to do ome careful checking of .farm- stored grain which they have under price support loans, it was stated this week by Virgil L. lohlf, manager of the Kossuth :ounty ASC. He said that a little effort now o examine stored grain for possible damage and contamina- ion from rodents, birds, insects, icating and exjcess moisture may revent losses from lowered uality. As a general thing, here is little loss during cold weather, he pointed out, but when the temperature climbs onditions became more favor- ble for damage. The producer who has a loan n farm-stored commodities has ull responsibility for their uantity and quality. "A price-support loan is made n a specified amount and grade f corn, oats, soybeans or what- ver commodity is involved," he eclared. "It is a non-recourse oan only while the quantity and uality of the commodity are qual to or better than when the >an was made." If the farmer pays off his loan nd sells tho grain he will get ess for it if the grain ia damaged r below loan quality. If the armer delivers the grain to the overnment in satisfaction of the oan. the settlement will be based trictly on the quantity and quality at the time of delivery nd any deficiency must be paid iy the farmer. Any farmer who discovers rouble in his stored grain and loes not know what to do to orrect it should notify the ounty ASC office immediately nd also ask advice either from he ASC office or the county Ex- ension Service office. Prompt ction is of greatest importance. Mayor Court Fines Six fines were levied in Mayor U. C. Shierk's court during the •"•"''.Leo H. Tofteberg, Bode, Clyde M.
