Gov't Wool Support Jumps Nearly 400%" Sheep growers will receive about $25 million in federal in- centive payments on their 1977 marketings of shorn wool, ac- cording to Ray Fitzgerald, administrator of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation ServiCe ASCS. .This compares with $7 million in payments made for 1976 marketings. Payments for 1977 marketings will be higher than 1976 because the support price for shorn wool was increased from 72 to 99 cents )er pound by the Food and Agriculture Act of 1977. The support level had been 72 cents a pound since 1970. The 1977 national average market price for shorn wool was 72.0 cents a pound, 27.0 cents under the support price. Therefore, the payment rate for 1977 marketings of shorn wool the amount required to bring the average price up to the incentive price -- will be 37.5 percent, compared to 9.6 percent in 1976. At the 72 cents a pound support price, there would have been no payments on 1977 marketings of shorn wool. The wool program is intended to encourage a grower to im- prove the quality of wool with a grower's incentive payment determined by multiplying the payment rate times the net dollar return received from sale of the wool. Mr. Fitzgerald also announced the payment rate will be $1.06 per hundredweight on unshorn lambs sold or slaughtered in 1977. This payment is to com- pensate growers for wool on live lambs they market. The payment is based on the shorn wool payment rate, the average weight of wool per hun- dredweight of lambs, and the price of lamb's wool per hun- dredweight of lambs, and the price of lamb's wool relative to the national average price for shorn wool. Deductions of 1!/2 cents a pound from 1977 shorn wool payments and 7% cents per hundred pounds of liveweight from 1977 lamb payments will be made to finance advertising, sales promotion' and related market development activities. These deductions, provided for in the National Wool Act of 1954, were approved by an 85.5 per- cent vote by sheepmen in a 1974 referendum. ASCS will soon begin making payments to growers through its county offices. -- _ _- - - HOSPITAL NOTES - _ - _-  _ ' _ _ Medical and Surgical patients a.m. on State Secondary 32 about 1.8 miles east of U.S, Route 340 and involved a 1969-model truck operated by Roy S.
