LAND BANK LOANS (South of Penneys in Algona) — preferably Mondays and Wednesdays — Eugene H. Hutchins, Manager Helen Haas, Keith R. Hopp Soybeans Set At 8.46 Bu. Support Price Prices for 1966 crop-soybeans in Kossuth county will be supported at an average of $2.46 per bushel, Richard I. Anderson, chairman, Agricultural and Stabilization and Conservation Committee, has announced. The county rate reflects the increase announced earlier this year in the national average support rate - from $2.25 to $2.50 as well as changing competitive market price relationships throughout the soybean producing areas. An increase in export demand has brought about changes in market price relationships. For instance, the increased movement of soybeans for export from Duluth-Superior and from Toledo have tended to increase the relative market prices in Minnesota and Ohio. Changes in milling capacity also have changed the competitive market price relationships in the same areas. Premiums* and discounts are the same as for the 1965 crop. Price-support on 1966-crop soybeans will be available to producers through loans on warehouse-and farm-stored soybeans and through purchases. Loans will be available through June 30, 1967. They will mature on demand but not later than July 31, 1967. Mrs. Henricksen Rites, Ringsted Services were held at 2 p. m.
