WASHINGTON Ag riculture Department predicted Tuesday a continued substantial decline in the number of milk cows during the fall and winter months The largest percentage decline since June 1959 occurred during the first half of this year when milk cow numbers dropped from 171 million to 166 million This represented a dttclite of 28 per cent The department said slowly ris ing costs are primarily responsible while prices received by farmers remain about steady except for a decline in the northeast National supplies of roughage for the fall and winter feeding season are expected to be sub stantially lower than a year ago although supplies probably will be ample in the North Central states and above last years low levels in most Southern states The decline in milk cow herds Is being reflected in milk pro duction The forecast is for less than 1255 billion pounds in 1963 compared with 1259 in 1962 Milk production declined a little less than 1 per cent in June and July from a year earlier The monthly decline from the year earlier level since the start of 1962 averages 8 per cent Cow numbers declined in all the North Central states but the larg est decline 38000 occurred in Iowa The sharpest percentage de cline however was in Nebraska Wisconsin which has nusiitained cow numbers unchanged from 1960 to 1962 reported a decline of 11000 cows Similarly cow num bers fell in all the West North Central states by 138000 or 36 per cent This substantially ex ceeded the 21 per cent decline in the East North Central states Cow numbers were reduced by 30000 in both Missouri and Il
