10-Algeria, (la.) Upper DM Molnei Thursday, De«. 15, 1966 Outline Feed Grain og "The details of the 1967 Feed *" Grain Program were announced Oct. 17, the earliest date ever, and In plenty of time for farmers to plan for fall plowing and 1967 crop rotations," R. I. Anderson, chairman of the Kossuth Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation (ASC) County Committee said today. TWENTY PERCENT DIVERSION - Diversion on farms will be twenty percent of the feed grain base and program payments will be based on the formula used In 1966: Thirty cents a bushel price support payment times the farm's projected yield times one- half the feed grain base. As in 1965 there will be no payment for twenty percent diversion except on small farms. PAYMENT INCREASE FOR SMALL FARMS-Diversionpay- ments will be made on farms with bases of twenty-five acres or less or on farms diverting twenty-five acres and growing no feed grains. Payments on these farms will be higher than they were in 1966. Diversion payments will be calculated at twenty percent of the support rate (CCC loan rale plus thirty cents price support payment) times the projected yield for the first twenty percent of the diverted acres and fifty percent of the support rate times the projected yield for the remaining diverted acres. SOYBEAN SUBSTITUTION CONTINUES - The provision allowing substitution of soybeans for corn or sorghum permitted acres is retained and price support payment will be made regardless of which crop is planted. COUNTY PROJECTED YIELD announcement expected soon Projected yields for the 1967 program will be calculated on the basis of the preceding years, 1961 through 1965. In the 1966 program yields were calculated on the years 1960 through 1964. "The only change expected may be a few minor yield Increases In some counties and an increase in the 1967 corn loan rate for participating farms based on a five cent increase in the national average," Mr. Anderson said. PREMEASUREMENT UNDER WAY NOW - Township com- inltteemen now are measuring acreage on farms for the 1967 program. All program acreage; corn, grain sorghum, conserving use acreage (either diverted or hay bases) and acreage on nonparticipating farms can be measured this fall. Farmers pay the cost of this service. Last spring before planting, township com- mJtteemen measured and staked program acreage on 1,795 Kossuth farms. Farmers desiring this service now should contact their ASC township committeemen or the ASCS county office. PARTICIPATION - In 1966, 112,922 Iowa farmers or 62% of all the farmers, participated in the Feed Grain Program and idled 3.4 million acres for diversion and price support payments totaling 194 million dollars. Here in Kossuth county 2,180 farmers or 68 percent of all farmers diverted 18,429 acres and earned price support and diversion payments totaling $3,922,700. "We expect more farmers to participate in 1967," Chairman Anderson said. "However, because of smaller diversion, government payments will be less and a larger portion of the farmer's income will be coming from the crops he grows. We can also expect the reduced diversion to reflect itself in larger sales of seed, fuel, fertilizer, machinery and other production items the farmer uses," Mr, Anderson concluded. National average price-support loan levels for 1967 crops will be 90 cents per bushel for barley, 63 cents per bushel for oats and $1.02 per bushel for rye- Compared with national average loan levels for 1966, barley is Increased 10 cents per bushel and oats 3 cents. Rye support is unchanged. The support levels are based on grade No. 2 or better for barley, No. 3 for oats, and No. 2 or better or No. 3 on test weight only for rye. All production of the three grains will be eligible for price-support loans. - o REHEARSAL DINNER Mrs. Laura Hough is ente.r- taining at a rehearsal dinner Dec. 17, honoring Joyce Anderson and Bob Holcomb, daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. W, M.
