The family tradition is it pointing towards consortiums and co-operatives in the near future. Speaking with farmers and representatives of agricultural organizations leaves an impression of insecurity and pessimism about the fu- ture of traditional Quebec agriculture. Auctions up Up to March 52 auctions had been announced in Quebec newspapers with milk cows offered for sale. In the whole of last there were only 29 auctions of animals. There were 10 auctions with 480 animals sold in 1972. The auctions appear symptomatic of a growing malaise. Last Quebec farmers received only 9.2 per cent of total Canadian farm compared with 15.4 per cent in 1969. In the same Prairie farmers saw their revenues climb to 62 per cent from 41 per cent of national farm profits.

Feed takes up more and more of the budget as farmers must pay the high price of transporting grain from the West. One milk producer in the Eastern Townships Quebec government seems much more interested in giving millions and millions of dollars to to large and medium because that helps create jobs. on the farm we often have to be content with what we can earn to facing similar losses also want.
