Page 16 Cheney Free Press Thursday, December 9, 1982 Farm News Conservation districts worry about funding State Legislative funding (the lack thereof) of the state's 51 conservation districts was the focus of the 41st annual meeting of the Washington Association of Conservation Districts (WACD), which met for three days in early December in Spokane. According to WACD President Jerry Digerness of Bellingham, the state's 255 conservation district supervisors back a resolution "that the WACD support state legislative efforts to finance local conservation districts and protect management staff and voluntary conservation program projects at the conservation district level, within current budget considerations and con- straints". Digerness said a-legislative proposal for $600,000 would be submitted in the upcoming legislative session in Olym- pia. Other resoluations passed by the conservation district supervisors per- tain to stream corridor management, forestry management and funding appropriations for the Grants to States section of the Conservation Title in the 1984 federal budget. One resolution of significance that did not pass the supervisors was to place conservation district supervisors on the General Election Ballot. At present, each of the state's five-member con- servation district board of supervisors are elected by landowners and through appointments by the Washington State Conservation Commission. This resolu- tion would have cost some counties a considerable amount of money in order to place supervisors on the General Election Ballot. Bernice Graves, chairperson of the WACD Education Committee, discus- sed conservation district education activities. She said that districts were working state-wide with schools and implementing Project L.I.F.E., a con- servation education program for stu- dents in grades one though five. "We will stat this winter to work with school teachers in grades six through nine," she said, "to help implement Conserving Soil, a new USDA-SCS conservation education program that focuses on soil." Norm McClure, chairman of the WACD Rangelands Committee, report- ed to the group that noxious weeds are a serious threat to the productivity of Washington State's rangeland. Roche said the group of plants known as "knapweeds", introduced into our country from the Mediterranean area of Europe, are so well adapted and vigorous as to be able to compete with our best forage plants on good condition range land. McClure called for vigorous action by individual cattlemen, con- servation districts and Noxious Weed Control Boards to contain the serious threat of noxious weeds. Dr. Jim Ozbun, the new Washington State University dean of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics, told the supervisors he believes the key to agriculture is the family farm. Dr. Ozbun said specialized agricultural programs at WSU need to be de- emphasized; WSU needs to put an emphasis on their soil conservation courses as well as research on conser- vation tillage. Lynn Browh, SCS St-e c0nserTvati0h - ist, Spokane, explained to supervisors that SCS's highest priorty is reducing soil erosion. "We will continue targeting our financial and personnel resources into the area of Southeast Washington known as the Palouse." Brown reported that, during fiscal year 1981, direct efforts of conservation practices applied through the targeted program benefited 365,159 acres and protected another 186,262 acres from deteriora- tion. This saved 1,904,842 tons of soil from eroding into streams, ditches, highways and other areas. Numerous conservation district supervisors were awarded District Service Pins for 20, 25, and 30 year pins. J.W. "Wes" Cornwall of the Spokane County Conservation District received a 40-year pin. He is the first conserva- tion district supervisor in Washington State to receive a 40-year pin. Food donated U.S.D.A. implements new milk marketing order here expressed in the Omnibus Budget Re- conciliation Act of 1982, this money will go to the Commodity Credit Corpora- tion (CCC) to offset part of the cost of dairy product purchases CCC makes under the dairy support program. Block said the procedures, which will be administered by USDA's Agricui- tural Marketing Service, are: --Those who pay the dairy farmers for their milk - in most cases milk handlers and dairy cooperative associ- ations -- will make the deductions and pay the CCC. Dairy farmers who sell their milk directly to consumers will be responsible for making their own Secretary of Agriculture John R. Block has announced the procedures the U.S. Department of Agriculture is now using to collect the 50 cents per hundredweight from the proceeds of milk marketed by the nation's dairy farmers, as of Dec. 1. In fulfilling the intent of Congress Alfalfa Trade Fair planned for Deer Park: "Everything you need to know to be up to date", is the theme of the upcoming Alfalfa Vendor Trade Fair. Products and equipment will be on display 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 9 at the Cinders Restaurant in Deer Park. cluded in the topics will be the latest developments in hay production and equipment, research and development of alfalfa varieties, products available to feeders and growers, and services available to the hay industry. The Northeast Washington Forage Association (NEWFA) is sponsoring this educational event for the second year. NEWFA is a relatively new commodity organization, dedicated to improving quality and marketing of hay and silage in the Spokane area, said Paterson. This organization has made significant progress toward its goal in tile past three years, he noted, ttow- ever, it needs broader grower and feeder support to remain viable. Further information is available from NEWFA at 276-6548 or 326-9230 or from the Extension office at 456-3651. payments to the CCC. --Payments are due on the date final payment is made to the dairy farmer. The first deductions will apply to milk marketed in December and payments will be due during January 1983. --Those responsible for making pay- ments will be required to file a brier report to USDA on the milk volumes for which they have made deductions. The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1982 is designed to reduce the cost of the dairy program, which has exceeded $2 billion each year for the last two years. Under the act, the secretary of agriculture is authorized to collect 50 cents per hundredweight of milk marketed if CCC dairy surplus purchases are expected to be above five billion pounds milk equivalent for the marketing year. Since purchases are expected to be well above this level, the secretary implemented the first phase of this program Dec. I. The law also provides for a second phase of this program, Block said, which could go into effect April 1, 1983 -- the earliest date authorized by Con- gress -- if estimated CCC purchases are at least 7.5 billion pounds milk equivalent during the marketing year. This phase provides for deducting an additional 50 cents per hundredweight from dairy farmers' proceeds, but calls for a refund to dairy farmers who have reduced their milk marketings by a specified amount, Block said. No decision has been made concern- ing the second phase of the plan, but USDA currently anticipates CCC purchases will exceed 7.5 billion pounds. Payment procedure regulations for the first phase are available from: Dairy Division, AMS, USDA, Washing- Ion, D.C. 20250.
