studied the amend ments viewed the administrations milk proposals as making it possible for the government to prevent milk distributors from using a small group of farmers outside a normal milk area to break down price lev els for fanners within the normal milkshed Has Been Custom It has been the custom Murphy said in one debate on the bill in some of the eastern markets where there is heavy consumption to draw milk from nearby states and break down the price the local producer is paid The desire is to give some protec tion to the price fixed in the local marketing areas The protection given is in the requirement that the handler buying milk from the persons shipping it from outside the state shall pay the lowest classifi cationuse price for the milk for a period of 90 days in order

of Agricultural Economic Facts Iowa State College monthly eco nomics publication By LAUREN K SOTH AMES July 22 Iowa farmer can draw both encourage ment and discouragement from the current agricultural situation If he is inclined to be pessimistic the facts will bear him out and il he leans the other way he can also find justification for his beliefs On the bright side 1 Farm prices in general are high and the exchange value of the farmers products with the things he buys is the highest it has been in many years 2 Crop conditions are good this year except that corn was planted late in some sections and was washed out by floods in others Supplies Below Normal 3 Supplies of farm products will continue below normal for some months The return to average stocks of crops and average num bers of livestock is a slow process following a drought such as last years Thus farm prices may be expected to continue high as tar as svipplies are concerned 4 The work relief program promises to increase consumers in comes if it ever gets moving On the dark side 1 The immediate outlook for de maud for farm products is not en couraging 2 The possibility of an adverse decision by the supreme court on the AAA threatens agriculture Gains Since June The Iowa farm price index stood at 120 per cent of the prewar aver age in June Prices of things fann ers buy were 127 per cent in that month according to the United States Department of Agriculture From these two figures it is esti mated that the exchange value ot Iowa farm products is around 94 per cent of the prewar average That is Iowa farm products prices are S4 per cent of parity with their prewar purchasing power Considering supplies only the out look for farm prices is good for the next year But when demand is taken into consideration the outlook is less bright yields Much Higher The federal crop report for July 1 indicated that yields of most crops will be much higher this year than they were last year Acreages are also expanded Corn production is expected to be around two billion bushels this year compared with an average of around two and a half billion Iowas crop will probably be around 290 million compared with an average of 440 million Last year production was only one and onethird billion bush els for the country and 195 million for Iowa Oats barley and rye production this year will be larger than nor mal and far above last years small outturn The hay crop will also be larger than average according to present indications and pasture con dition is well above average Grain Supplies Low Supplies of feed grains on hand now are very low but the U S D A estimates that total feed grain supplies next winter will be about normal in relation to numbers of livestock on hand It is probable that corn prices next fall and winter will not be as low as had been ex pected earlier in the year before Turn In IVKc 2 Ciilimln 6 RECEIPTSOFAAA TOP SPENDING IN PAST 11 MONTHS Farm Payments Make Up 535 Million Out of 767 Used
