Martin Washington a a Mercian St re of Corn Oats and Barley major livestock grains on july i Are expected by the Bureau of agricultural economics to be the smallest for that Date since 1937, when the country had to import Large quantities of Grain to help meet shortages caused by the drought of 1936. In a report on the livestock feed situation the Bureau said july i supplies of these grains would total Only Between 18,-000,000 Anil 20.000,000 tons. Present Short Grain supplies reflect heavy use by a War expanded livestock Industry. Because reserves of feed have been virtually depleted Farmers Are reducing livestock numbers particularly hogs and poultry. Looking to the feeding season ahead the Bureau said indications Are that there would be considerably less Grain available for livestock supplies will be determined largely by this years production of Corn Oats Barley and wheat and by Grain imports. The Short iced Supply situation has been eased to some extent the Bureau said by favourable pasture conditions this Spring. It is too Early the Bureau said to make any estimate As to this years probable production of feed grains. Indications Are the Bureau said. That the acreage seeded to Oats will be less than Farmers had planned on March i due to unfavourable weather conditions. Any reduction in the Oats acreage is expected however to be offset by increases in acreage of Corn and soybeans. The present Low level of food Grain supplies is matched the Bureau said by a 23 per cent reduction in stocks of Hay under those of a year ago.
