609 tobacco companies are saying: get your crop on
auction in December. They say they need PA 609
tobacco to blend with buriey tobacco. This is good news
for PA 609 as it is becoming known worldwide.
Tennessee and Kentucky auctions open at Thanksgiving.
Local tobacco farmers should bring some of thei: best
tobacco to first sale, December sth, with a full warehouse
to attract buyers. There are reports tobacco buyers are
telling tobacco companies in the south that they can buy
cheaper on the farm. If this is true -- think twice!
We at tobacco warehouse wanMo help market your
tobacco at an all-time high price. We are not in the
tobacco processing business, we are in the business of
selling your tobacco.
Please don’t misrepresent your tobacco inside the bale
with nesting. Try your best with neat bales - it’s worth
your time. You have worked hard to grow a good crop,
don't go wrong in stripping your crop. Watch your
moisture and keep green out. THIS MIGHT BE THE

L tobacco on contract for $1.20/lb. and that will be the price
V for the season!

No Fee Increase
ITHACA, N.Y. Members ot
the Northeast DHIA Board of
Directors met recently to review
the audited financial statements for
fiscal year 1994 which ended
August 31, 1994. It is the third
straight year the cooperative has
held the line on fees. The fiscal
1994 year exceeded budget expec
tations of a deficit and ended with a
modest positive margin, allowing
the cooperative to begin a new fis
cal year without any threat of DHI
fee increases to the Cooperative’s
members. Board members cited
the strong financial position of the
cooperative and the current milk
prices as primary reasons for pass
ing a deficit budget rather than bal
ancing the budget by increasing
DHI fees.
