WASHINGTON, March 31--Minimum prices at which Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC)
commodity holdings will be available for sale during April were announced today by
Ray Fitzgerald, CCC executive vice-president. These prices, subject to amendment,
become effective at 2:30 p.m. (EST) today and will continue until superseded by the
May monthly sales list. The April list of commodities is unchanged from the
March list. Dairy products, which were removed from the list on March 8, are again
listed (at higher prices) for April.
In this sales list: "Unrestricted use" applies to sales which permit either
domestic or export use and "export" applies to sales, which require export. "Market
price" means prices as determined by CCC.
Nonfat dry milk, butter, cheese and rice are listed for unrestricted use sale.
Crude peanut oil and farmers stock peanuts are listed for restricted use sale.
Peanut oil stocks have been sold except for small reserves and is listed for
occasional sales that may be necessary as deliveries are being completed.
Odd lots and off-quality lots are sold promptly and may not appear in the
Monthly Sales List. CCC may limit sales quantities. Nonstorable commodities will
be sold at not less than the market price. Sales are not confined to delivery
positions that may be cited in commodity offerings. Minimum prices for other
positions are derived by applying adjustments for handling charges, etc.
CCC reserves the right to refuse to consider an offer if it does not have
adequate information of financial responsibility of the offerer to meet contract
obligations of the type contemplated in this announcement. Interest at 10 percent
will be charged for delinquent payments on all sales.
On sales for which the buyer is required to submit to CCC proof of exportation,
the buyer shall be regularly engaged in the business of buying or selling commodities
and for this purpose shall maintain a bona fide business office in the United States,
its territories or possessions and have a person, principal, or resident agent upon
whom service or judicial process may be had.
Buyers are responsible for obtaining any required U.S. Government export permit
or license. Purchase from CCC shall not constitute any assurance that any permit or
license will be granted by the issuing authority.
Exports to certain countries are regulated by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
These restrictions also apply to any commodities purchased from the Commodity Credit
Corporation whether sold for restricted or unrestricted use. Countries and
commodities are specifically listed in the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Control
Regulations. Additional information is available from the Bureau of Internal
Commerce or from the field offices of the Department of Commerce.
