Algona (la.) Upper DM MolnM Tuwday, Sept. 21, 1965 Predict Higher Net In Farm Income For '65 Realized net farm Income in 1965 will likely total almost $13.5 ibillion, the highest level since 1953, Secretary of Agriculture Orvllle L. Freeman has told the Senate Agriculture Committee, R. I. Anderson, Chairman, Agricultural and Conservation County Committee, said today. The Secretary said the new level will be $1.8 billion more than in 1960 and is $900 million more than 1964. Prices of farm products averaged about 10 percenthigher In June than they did a year ago, especially for beef, pork, broilers, feed grains, tobacco, soybeans, -potatoes and vegetables. Cash receipts from the sale of farm products In the first half of this year were some $700 million more than In the same period In 1964, Secretary Freeman said. In his statement to the Senate Committee, the Secretary said realized net income per farm is estimated to be $4,000 as compared to $3,727 In 1964 and $2,956 in 1960. "Prospects for maintaining this Improved level of performance will depend on the continuing stability of the Nation's economy and on the actions taken by the Congress on the President's food and agriculture proposals now pending, which would extend and Improve the policies which have proven so successful during the first five years of this decade," Secretary Freeman said. He noted that although farm income has strengthened in the past five years, food is still a better bargain than ever before. "This year, food costs for the average consumer will take 18.3 percent of income after taxes. In 1960, food required 20 percent and the diet was much less abundant In beef. "If the same percentage of income was spent for food in 1965 as in 1960, consumers would have had $7 billion less to spend on other things, or about as much as is spent annually for physician care, or more than is spent for radio and tele vision sets, records and musical instruments," the Secretary said. 57 Vehicles Sold In County Past 2 Weeks Sales of new vehicles to Kossuth residents during the past two weeks totaled 57, according to registration records at the office of County Treasurer, Rosella Volgt.
