This Newspaper Plans to Carry Brief, Condensed, Authentic
Report Each Week for Benefit of Agricultural
Readers and Interests.
A ARM readers will be interested to know that the Hcppner Gazcttte
Times has arranged to publish each week a farm market review, one
of which is in this issue.
Weekly farm market reviews are intended to throw light on the
general trend of the markets for various agricultural commodities. The
infomation is assembled from widely scattered sources by the bureau
of agricultural economics of the U. S. department of agriculture and
other agencies. It is rushed by wire, cable, airmail and otherwise to
government specialists who compile it ready for release. Then it Is
rushed to cooperating specialists who adapt it to the needs of the
farmers of the respective districts.
Farmers must constantly make decisions about what crops and
livestock to produce and how much of each kind and quality how,
when and where to market their products. If wise decisions are made
individual farmers are more prosperous and the agricultural industry
of the state forges ahead faster than when mistakes are made.
To assist in this field the division of agicultural economics of the
0. A. C. extension service has for many months been developing a
system to collect and disseminate current agricultural economic in
formation for Oregon farmers.
This is a comparatively new development. Heretofore most author
itative agricultural information has been concerned with improved
methods of production. Farm leaders however have insisted for years
that the business side of farming is equally important.
It is in no small measure due to the influence of farm organizations
that the bureau of agricultural economics of the United States de
partment of agriculture has been greatly strengthened and an exten
sive system of gathering economic, statistical and marketnig informa
tion established under its leadership. Various agricultural colleges
and other agencies are fast falling into line to supplement the work.
Together these agencies are in constant contact with agricultural
affairs in nearly every county of the United States and in most for
eign countries. It is thus possible to bring together, compile and re
lease information on the trends of production and marketings that
will throw much light in hitherto dark places. With suitable methods
developed for getting this information to the actual farmers in time
to assist them in making better decisions, it will be possible to base
farm production and marketing programs on something better than
merely a "best guess."
Four rather distinct but related methods of dissemination of cur
rent information are being developed: 1, annual agricultural outlook
reports; 2, monthly agricultural situation reports; 3, weekly farm mar
ket reviews; 4, daily market reports. Each of these has its particular
purpose and must be handled accordingly. The weekly market reviews
are especially well adapted to the use of rural weekly papers, although
they are also released by radio and to county agricultural agents in
Oregon. The Gazette Times is to cooperate in this work in the interest
of the agricultural industry.
Farm Market Rewiew
Brief Report of Agricultural Com
modity Trends April II. v
(Prepared by L. R. Breithaupt of
the 0. A. C. Extension Service Divis
ion of Agricultural Economics on in
formation from U. S. D. A. and other
Poultry. Military conditions in
China have caused egg freezing plants
at Hankow and Nanking and the ma
jority of egg drying plants in the in
terior to close down. The outlook is
-'or BO per cent of last year's produc
tion or less.
Livestock. Receipts of lambs and
rl.eep at leading markets were slight
ly higher last week but prices were
well sustained. Hop receipts fell off
a a result of lower prices the week
before but supplies were still above
those of the corresponding period a
year before. Demand for heavy, fed
cattle continued strong, with other
classes reflecting the improved situa
lion. Expansion of the supply of
heavy cattle is not expected in the
near future. The trade believes that
increased runs when they come will
comprise mostly light steers. Con
ditions in most early lamb regions
were more favorable this year than
last and on April 1 the early lambs
on the whole were better developed
than a year ago. Marketing in volume
ill be earlier than last year and
iambs wlil be heavier and of better
quality. The supply before July 1
will be considerably larger.
Wool. Sales of foreign wool stored
in bond for re-export still feature
Boston wool trade reports. Moderate
trading in domestic wool continues.
Some South African mohair stored in
the United States in bond has been
exported to England. All offers at
the recent sealed bid mohair sale in
Texas are reported to have been re
jected. Wheat. World wheat markets were
practically unchanged during the
week ending April 9. A fair domestic
demand and export inquiry offset lib
eral market arrivals and good new
crop conditions reports. Private
trade reports indicate a smaller total
yield of winter wheat in the United
States this year than last by 45 to 60
million bushels. The Indian wheat
crop is now being harvested and is
reported only slightly to exceed dom
estic requirements.
Rye. Export demand has given
strength to the rye market.
Feed Graing. Corn prices advanced
in leading markets last week and
barley markets were firm and higher.
Hay. Slightly less hay remains to
be marketed than a year ago, but tak
ing the country over dealers expect
r quiet spring market. Extreme
shortage of clover hay has helped
the market for alfalfa in Illinois and
states to the eastward.
Applea. Competition for American
ipples is beginning in European mar
kets with New Zealand and Austral
ian apples. Prices about April 1 were
showing a decline on most varieties,
but there was a fairly active demand
in Copenhagen for Oregon Yellow
Newtowns at $3.28 to $3.53 a box at
auction, these prices being a little
higher than for the previous week.
Butter. Markets were very sensi
tive and erratic during last week, but
htocks continue light and the statis
tical position is strong. Production
is increasing slightly but with little
prospect of any sharp increase for
several weeks at least.. Some foreign
butter continues to arrive but not
much interest is being shown by
dealers in the foreign offerings.
