AT TEN CENTS
New England Milk Produc
ers' Ass'n Fix Prices
Farmers Lose Half Ct.
The August milk price will be 10
cents per juart delivered in Boston.
This is the regular seasonal advance
ot one-halt cent which the farmers
who supply the Boston market re
ceive and while it brings the Augsut
price higher than it was last year,
the advance is not in proportion to
the increased costs and the farmers
who sell in the Boston market will
not get back the co.-t of production
at the present abnormal prices of
grain and. labor.
The Boston price fixes the price
in many other rmaller cities in New
England as there is a rather general
practice that smaller cities shall fol
low the Boston pi. -co. This system
grew up ruling the war when the
prices to both farmers and to con
sumers were fixed b" the Federal
Regional Milk commission which held
its sessions in Boston. Other cities
simply followed the Boston price set
by the commission. The commission
docs not now exist but the system,
so far as the price to the farmers
is concerned is still general.
The 10 cent price to the farmers
was arrived at after lone and care
ful study of the situation by the New
England Milk Producers association,
the selling agent of the farmers.
Survcry have shofn that the cost ot
producing milk has advanced mater
ially and a full cent a quart advance
would no more than c-"al the increas
ed costs of roduction as compared
with last year. It was thought best,
however, to make an advance of only
one-half cent, the same as in the
three previous years.
The surveys ot costs showed tnat
the average for the vear, at the pre-
srnt prices of feeds, labor and ma
terials, .would be 9.82" cents per quart
at the farm. The actual cost in
August are !).2 per cent lower than
for the year as a whole, according to
averages of cost nroduction of sev
eral years. Deducting this from the
yearly average leaves the August
cost of milk nroduction 8.91 cents per
quart, at the farm.
Prices for the Boston market are
fixed on the delivered basis. The cost
of delivery to Boston varies with the
distance and with other factors, but
the average is 1.52 cents per ouart
for bringing milk to Boston. This
is the actual cost at 200 miles from
Boston. That is th( average dis
tance from-which the Boston supply
comes. Adding this cost to the fami
cost gives 10.4" cents per ouart which
the farmers should receive to come
out square in Au-ust.
The New England Milk Producers'
association was unwillin"- to make
the advance of the full cent a '-uart
in August although the figures seem
ed to justifv it. It was decided to
make only the customarv advance of
one-half cent. While this leaves the
farmer selling milk at a loss of nearlv
a half-cent a quart, there is some
hope that prices for feeds and la
bor will go down Somewhat and that
the reduced costs will enable the far
mers to come out nearly square. The
early summer prices are lower be
cause the costs of production arc
lower. The advance in August is a
swing back toward the normal -"ice
which must be paid to meet the aver
age costs for the year.
The New England Milk Producers'
association laid their figures of costs
and informed the State commission
on necessities of life fully of the sit
uation both inside and out be fort
taking any action. The association
has nothing to do with the price to
the consumer but voluntarily laid its
case before the commission so that it
could be informed fully of the situ
ation in case the price to the con
sumers was increased b- the dealers.
