"^ybean meal prices will bt a niajor influence on prices foi other high protein feeds, Righi now soybean meal prices appeal likely to remain steady to slight ly lower for the first half of 19^0. We may, however, get i , . , , . . small seasonal increase ir Ifc explained that three mam prices next summer, partly as £ factors aparent^ acct^ted result of a modest increase ii for the sharply mcreased de- soybean nrines " «,a mand: Livestock and poultiy gjj^ numbers increased tnoderately; feeding margins were generally quite favorajole. and prices foi high feeds averaged a little lower than a year earlier. Wisner pointed out that wholesale prices of most high protein feed ingredients have showii a moderate decline dining the past four or five months. Soybean meal—the most in^portant high protein feed—reached a seasonal high in June and July. Prices for 44 percent soybean meal have worked down about *6 a ton since that time. Wholesale soybean meal priccs at Decatur in early De^ -îember were around $Î3 a ton. 'Altl»iu^ it may seem a little surprising in view of . lower soybean prices, this was actually $1.50 higher than a year ago." ecotjomlsv commented. Pocahontas County Bond Sales Reported Louis J.
