THE NATION continues to oper
ate at close to top speed, with em ployment at a record level and in comes rising and running 12-15 per cent over the ÿear-ago level. Man ufacturers' new orders, including those for defense goods, continue larger than a year ago. Unfilled or ders are over 450.000.000,000, or more than twice those of a year ago. Hence, factories are likely to con tinue extremely busy. Consumer and military demand for foods remains strong, but mar kets for some goods are still in a letdown from the overbuying spree of last fall and early winter when fear of further price rises and short ages led to excessive stocking up by business firms and consumers. CATTLE —Price changes in the near future will depend important ly on what congress does in extend ' ing the defense production act. If the August and October rollbacks are outlawed, through amendments favored by congressional commit tees, receipts may continue light in July, but are likely to pick up Sub stantially in August when Kansas and Oklahoma grassers usually move freely. Numbers in that area are 8-9 percent larger than last year. If the further rollbacks are not eliminated, cattle are likely to be sold rather heavily in July to beat the price decline. Many cattle, espe cially in the intermediate and low er grades, still appear to be selling over the compliance level. If en forcement of the price and slaughter quota orders is improved, it will put downward pressure on prices. In any case, prices for the intermediate and lower grades probably will decline, due to increasing supplies over the next four or five months.

Even though prices are $2-3 lower than before the May rollback, most buyers are waiting to see if further rollbacks stand. If they do not, active contracting may start.

But, unless military or stock pile buying becomes much larger than is now indicated, prices are likely to remain below ceilings. Prices probably will reach the low point for the season somewhere from July to October, then rise gradually later in the year. WHEAT fall. Consumer demand is good for both fluid milk and manufactured products, and storage demand for butter and cheese is fairly good at current prices. Returns to dairymen, especially from fluid milk sales, over cost of concentrates and hay or pas ture probably will continue larger than a year ago. EGGS — Rising prices are prob able over the next three or four months. Production is gradually The new crop movement will put prices under pressure in the next 60 days. It may be neutralized by large export sales, crop damage and placements under loan. DAIRY PRODUCTS— A moderate price rise is probable over the next four or five months.
