» under expanding new crop supplies,
wnile oats and barley will be about
steady. After a few weeks, prices for
all feed grains probably will turn
stronger but gains are likely to be
slow.
FLAXSEED—The crop estimate has
been raised to 30 million bushels, up
7.2 million from last year, but because
of the light carryover, total supplies
remain small compared with require
ments. Prices probably will show a
little seasonal strength in the next two
or three months.
DAIRY PRODUCTS—Seasonal price
strength will continue through the next
six to eight weeks. Under new legisla
tion price supports were raised 3 cents
a pound for butterfat and 16 cents a
cwt. for manufacturing milk until
March 31, 1961. CCC's buying prices
were upped 2Vz cents a pound for but
ter, 1 Vz cents for cheese and
for nonfat dry milk. Prices have been
above supports recently. The change
in support level will reduce -the sea
sonal price drop from early winter to
late spring.
EGGS—Prices for fine large eggs
are rounding the peak for the year
and will start a seasonal decline in
two to four weeks, but are likely to
average substantially higher during
most of the next six months than a
year earlier. The number of potential
layers on Sept. 1 was 7 per cent less
than a year previous and smallest for
that date in the 24-year record. How
ever, production per layer is 2-3 per
cent over a year ago.
POTATOES—Prices in the next few
u
cent
weeks will be under pressure from
heavy harvest-time marketing. Fore
casts of late summer and fall crops
total 203.4 million cwt., up 5.1 million
from last year. However, table use
is holding nearly steady and use by
processors for products other than
starch and flour has been increasing
5 or 6 million cwt. a year,
BEANS—Adjustment of prices to a
new crop basis is about completed.
They probaWy will hold fairly steady
through early fall. Any rise is likely
to be moderate and may not be much
more than the cost of storing. The crop
forecast was increased to 17.7 million
cwt. against 18.2 mdlion last year.
Light-Weight Wheat
Eligible for Support
PRICE-SUPPORT REGULATIONS on
1960-crop wheat have been relaxed to
include light-weight wheat that pre
viously was ineligible for support, Gas
pard W. Deschamps, Missoula, chair
man of the State Agricultural Stabiliza
tion and Conservation committee, an
nounces. The change has been made
because prolonged drought in some
areas is resulting in a higher percent
age of light-weight wheat than usual.
Under the relaxed regulation, wheat
grading "Sample" on test weight only
will now be eligible for support, but
no wheat testing less than 40 pounds
per bushel will be eligible. Before the
provisions were relaxed, price support
was limited to wheat grading No. 3 or
better, or No. 4 or No. 5 on test weight
only.
The light-weight wheat will be dis
counted below the minimum test weight
(50 or 51 pounds a bushel, depending
on class) for Grade No. 5 wheat at the
rate of 4 cents for each pound through
45 pounds per bushel and 6 cents for
each pound thereafter for wheat having
a test weight of 40 through 44 pounds
per bushel
addition to other required discounts
and will be added to the discount of 9
cents per bushel for wheat grading No.
5 on test weight.
This discount will be in
