Research Day BOXING TOURNEY MARCH 12 - 13 Wheat & Barley Program AG RESEARCH DAY Agricultural producers in northeast Montana will have an opportunity to take part in a one-day program focussing on agricultural reseaich being conducted in this area. The Agricultural Research Service and MSU Eastern Ag Research Center will highlight the day with individual topics on research programs. The program is called an "Ag Research Day," and will be held at the Sherman Motor Inn, Wolf Point, on Wednesday, March 9. It will begin at 9:30 a.m. with Coffee and Registration, with the first presentation beginning at 10:00 a.m. The Roosevelt and Sheridan County Conservation Districts, MSU Extension Service in Roosevelt and Sheridan Counties, MSU Agricultural Experiment Station, and the Agricultural Research Service, are co-sponsoring this Ag Research Day. A number of topics will be covered in this program, including research programs on tillage, spring grain productions, diseases and insects, soil erosion, grasshopper, small grain varieties and safflower. Area agricultural producers are welcome to attend. There will be a one dollar ($1.00) registration fee to help cover coffee and breaks. Lunch will be provided by the two Conservation Districts in Roosevelt and Sheridan Counties. 1988 Wheat and Feed Grain Program Muriel Park, County Executive Director of the Roosevelt County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) says sign up started February 16 and will run through April 15, 1988. As the form required for signature to participate is generated through the computer Park is asking producers to try to complete sign up during hours from 9:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m. Produces are unable to sign to participate in the program until participation form is available and normally the computer is not ready for use until 9:00 a.m. Park says the program provisions for 1988 are similar to the 1987 program except for the 0/92 provision. Applications to participate in the 0/92 is in addition to the optional paid land diversion offered for barley. Producers may choose to plant less acreage than the full permitted and devote the reduced acreage to approved conserving acreage uses. The intended planting of any 0/92 crop (wheat, barley and oats) may be any amount between zero and the full permitted acreage. The intended conserving use acres for payment may be any amount between the intended planting and 92% of the permitted acreage for the crop. For 0/92 crops, the deficiency payment for CU for payment acres is guaranteed to be not less than the estimated 1988 deficiency rate $1.53 for wheat, $.76 for barley and $.30 for oats. In order to minimize any adverse effect on agri-business within a county, the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to limit the continued on page A. National ABF Indian Boxing Tournament will be held next week March 12-13, Sat. and Sun., at the Poplar High school Gym.

Hunting & Fishing License Expire LICENSE YEAR CHANGES MARCH 1 The DFWP reminds sportsmen that all current hunting and fishing licenses expire February 29. After that date, sportsmen must have new 1988-89 licenses in their possession to legally hunt and fish in Montana. New licenses will be available at all DFWP offices and license dealers by February 29. New Fitness Machine Installed A new addition to the YMCA Fitness Center was installed this past week at the YMCA Home on the Blvd. 11 Station universal weight machines from IHS in exchange for free membership for all IHS employees. THE 1988 WHEAT AND BARLEY PROGRAMS Signup for the wheat and barley programs began Feb 16 and will continue through April 15. In 1988, farm managers who fully participate in the wheat program will place in acreage conservation reserve (often called set-aside) 27.5 percent of their wheat bases. On the 72.5 percent of the base planted, they will be provided price and income protection. The USDA anticipates a total wheat deficiency payment of $1.53 per ASCS bushel lor the 1988 wheat crop. This suggests that the USDA expects the 12-month marketing year natnnal average wheat price to be $2.70 per bushel, well above the loan rate of $2.21 per ASCS bushel. Farm managers will have to price their wheat in the marketplace. Those who successfully market wheat at $2.70 or more per bushel are expected to realize the 1988 target price of $4.23 per ASCS bushel when the $1.53 deficiency payment is considered. Farm managers who fully participate in the 1988 barley program will place in acreage conservation reserve 20 percent of their barley bases. On the 80 percent of each base planted, the farm managers will be provided price and income protection. Additionally, Farm managers may elect an additional 10 percent paid diversion for barley. The USDA expects a total barley deficiency payment of $0.76 per ASCS bushel, implying a 12-month marketing year national average price of $1.75 per bushel. This expected average price of $1.75 per bushel exceeds the $1.44 per bushel ASCS loan rate. Again, barley producers will have to price their barley in the market place. Those who successfully market wheat at $1.75 per bushel or more are expected to realize the 1988 target price of $2.51 per ASCS bushel when the $0.76 deficiency payment is considered. Farm managers desiring advance deficiency payments must request these at signup. A special provision will allow wheat producers to receive 75 percent of the "Findley payment" for wheat prior to the end of 1988. Again, this must be requested at signup. Signup and compliance concerns will be addresses at local ASCS offices. All Montana State University county Extension offices have worksheets and/or computer spreadsheets to assist farm managers. These worksheets allow farm managers to assess the net returns above operating costs for the regular wheat and barley program options and the optional paid diversion for barley. Farm managers who wish assistance at the county offices of the Extension Service should bring information on wheat and barley crop acreage bases and ASCS yields. Additionally, their estimates of the operating costs for the production, management, and harvest of wheat and barley will be useful. Farm managers concerned about the 0/92 program should confer directly with their respective ASCS offices. The signup period for 0/92 began Feb. 16 and continues through March 11.
