Prices for the 1962 crops of feed grains, according to Ellis W. Thompson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee, will be supported at the following national average support levels: Corn, $1.20 per bushel average for all grades; barley, 93 cents per bushel for grade No. 2 or better; grain sorghum, $1.93 per hundredweight for grade No. 2 or better; oats, 62 cents per bushel for grade No. 3; and rye, $1.02 per bushel for grade No. 2 or better, or grading No. 3 on test weight only. The chairman pointed out that these supports are the same as the 1961 crop supports. The 1962 support prices reflect approximately 74 per cent of the January parity for corn, barley, and oats; 69 per cent for rye; and about 78 per cent for grain sorghum. Feed grain legislation provides that the Secretary of Agriculture may set the support level for corn at not less than 65 per cent of parity for the 1962 crop. The $1.20 per-bushel support price, Mr. Thompson said, was determined as the price that would effectively meet the objectives of the feed grain program. Support for the other feed grains requires consideration of several factors, including supply in relation to demand, the ability of the Commodity Credit Corporation to dispose of stocks acquired under price support, the ability and willingness of producers to keep supplies in line with demand, feed value of grains in relation to corn, and support levels for other commodities. After considering these factors, the support prices for barley, oats, and rye were set directly at their feeding value relationship to corn, and the support price for grain sorghum was set at 90 per cent of the feed value of corn - the same as for 1961. In his announcement of tlie 1962- crop feed grain .support levels. Secretary of Agriculture Freeman said that as a result of the extension of the feed grain program to 1962 crops, farmers "have the op- IMrtimity not only to hold the ground they gained in 19G1 but to make further advances toward the goal of higher farm income and lower Federal expenses, Participation in the 1901 feed grain program was great enough to bring about a reversal in the build up of feed grain stocks in Government hands for the first time in nine years despite record yield. "The 1982 prict> support levels should make it possible for us to maintain and increase the farm income gain of 1961, while we move forward with long range revisions of our farm laws which will permit further progress toward our goal of parity in income for farm people." The 1962 price support on soybeans is $2.25 per bushel, national average. This is five cents lower, per bushel, than in 1961 which was $2.30. 4-H baby beef project* One hundred fifty-two Baby Beef projects are enrolled in 4-H club work for 1962.

"The organization is now exerting all the effort and energy of the organization in a final drive toward the bargaining table." Stanley said the N. F. O. strategy is very clear. "We will prepare for an all-out holding action at the earliest possible date. In the meantime we will be offering the processors an opportunity to bargain in good faith through the master contract." He said if they do not choose to bargain in good faith then they will have to accept the responsibility and consequences of an all-out holding action and a battle to the finish. "The N. F. 0., made up of farmers and run by farmers, Is determined to get farmers in a position to price their products at the market place," Staley concluded. "This new drive is another stepping stone to that ultimate goal." Mrs. Harold L. Boulton.
