Final farmer grain payment cheques in mail By VICTOR MACKIE OTTAWA An injection of million dollars into the western economy this fall will flow from the announcement made Tuesday in the Com- mons by Justice Minister Otto who reports to Parlia- ment for the Wheat Board. He announced the final pay- ments for oats and bar- ley for the 1972-73 producer deliveries. The board will start mailing over che- ques to praine farmers this week. The prairie boom will give another push to the expanding Canadian economy as the che- ques go out to the producers over the next three or four weeks. The 1972-73 average final payment on wheat will be 47 45 cents a bushel On barley it is 51.63 cents a bushel. On oats it will be 40.80 cents a bushel. The total payment each pro- ducer receives depends on the quantities and grades of grain delivered during the crop year. Final payment cheques are mailed separately for barley and oats. With the cheques the board will enclose a pamphlet giving producers a break down on the board's 1972-73 pool accounts. final payments coupled with the higher initial prices received at country result in the highest cash return to produc- ers on grain sales in over a quarter of a Mr. Lang said. of this is contributing to a dramatic overall im- provement in the income posi- tion of prairie farmers which I believe is justly deserving to the minister added. The total realized price on grain during 72-73 average a bushel for for barley and J1.10 a bushel for oats. Marketing charges covering carrying costs and the board's administrative costs are deducted from these totals to give producers their net return. prices are the best we've seen for some and the prospects for total grain sale returns in the calendar year 1974 are much better said Mr. Lang. The more than million to go out to the fanners is the net amount still owing to producers from the sale of their grain by the board in Canadian and overseas markets. The total figure for wheat also includes funds received from the federal government under the provisions of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act. Mr. Lang indicated that official figures now available revealed that the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act has ex- pired. Under the provisions of this act the expiration automatically would happen when wheat stocks in com- mercial storage at the ex- pense of the Wheat Board at the end of the crop year dropped below 178 million bushels. This has proven to be the situation this year. CAREER IF YOU CAN SELL WE WANT YOU Exceptional income opportunity.
