We continue to fight this proposal by USDA to lower the loan rate differential for runner type peanuts. We have been working to energize farmers to make contacts through the use of our American Peanuts web site. We have also been in contact with the Georgia Congressional Delegation on this issue. Because contracts are tied to loan rate this could really hurt every one of our growers.
Screen on the Green
We are running a commercial and have other activities tied to Screen on the Green. The next movie we are sponsoring is ET on June 19. The folks with Hershey's have agreed to supply us with Reese's Pieces for the audience. Reese's Pieces are made with our runner peanuts.
Also, Peachtree TV will be running this promo spot the week before ET.
