4 p.m.
Pennsylvania Agriculture
goes on exhibit with vast
machinery and equipment
displays, farm products, just
about any type of livestock
you can think of.
If you’ve never been there,
it’s an experience you won’t
easily forget. For anyone
with a feeling for
agriculture, the land, and
farmers, it’s impressive.
If there’s a problem
associated with Farm Show,
it’s weather. It always
seems to snow sometime
during Farm Show week.
But, the roads to Harrisburg
are good, and except for an
ice storm or heavy blizzard,
it’s good going.
The buildings are vast.
The mam exhibit area, the
large and small arenas all
well heated. The livestock
barns may be chilly to some,
but not really un
comfortable.
The latest farm equip
ment, mammoth tractors,
Be an early bird!
Come in and see us now
while we still have a good selection.

Dairy, Inc. (one of the G.S.F.
associated corporations)
during the month of Sep
tember 1977 has been
delayed by a court order,
according to Market Ad
ministrator Thomas A.
Wilson.
Wilson stated that com
putations had been made of
the pro rata amount of the
Producer Settlement Fund
credit due each of the
delivering producers and it
was intended that these
checks be prepared and
mailed out this month.
On December 15,1977, the
Market Administrator was
served with a summons,
complaint and temporary
restraining order by David
P. Michaels, receiver for the
G.S.F. Corporation and its
associated corporations.
These corporations have
filed a petition seeking the
protection of Chapter XI of
the bankruptcy act. The
receiver has taken the
position that these monies
belong to the estate of the
bankrupt, and accordingly,
the temporary restraining
order prohibited the market
administrator from paying
over this money to the
producers.
Wilson explained that
normally this money would
be sent to handlers for
distribution to producers;
however, the handler had
failed to pay its producers
and had sought the
protection of the bankruptcy
act. Therefore, the market
administrator was required
to distribute these monies to
the individual producers
involved.
This matter is presently
scheduled for hearing before
the Bankruptcy Court on
January 10, 1978. Wilson
added that although the total
amount of the credit was
relatively small when
compared with the total
unpaid balances due
producers from this handler,
he will do everything in his
power to protect the rights of
the affected producers and
to expedite the resolution of
this issue.
