FARlvl MARKET TREND
Oregon Agricultural College, Cor
vallis, October 17. GRAIN: Good
milling demand and advancing prices
at Winnepeg and Liverpool caused a
firm market for wheat and rye last
week. The quality of wheat offered
is an important factor in the market
owing to damage in Canada and in
Europe and the strong domestic de
mand for high protein spring wheat,
hard winter and soft winter grades.
Premiums for hard, high protein
wheat continued to increase but larg
er receipts at St. Loius caused re
ductions for soft winter. Corn went
lower on increased crop estimates
and oats followed, but barley was in
dependently firm especially malting
grades. Flax weakened on heavy re
ceipts of indifferent quality.
WOOL. The wool market contin
ued to strengthen gradually.
BUTTER. Steady prices on high
grades but weakening on the poorer
kinds were noted last week in the
San Francisco butter market. East
ern markets were down a cent then
back again. On October 1 the Btorage
holdings for the whole United States
were 147,412,000 pounds or 22,070,000
more than a year earlier. Withdraw
als from storage are heavier than last
year at present. The outlook for pro
duction is considered favorable.
LIVESTOCK. In between grades
of fed steers moved up at Chicago
in sympathy with earlier advances of
highly finished kinds which placed
Ut week's fat cattle market at that
point in line with the season's high
est which is the highest since war
days. Rather liberal offerings of
unfinished cattle appeared in western
markets. Hogs were arriving in less
volume with stocks cleared in better
shape than at any time during the
season causing a firm situation and
some price advance. Both fat and
feed lambs advanced in principal
FEEDS. Heavy production of wheat
feeds, good pasturage conditions and
lower prices for corn and oats were
weakening factors in the feed mar
ket but hnseed meal, cottonseed meal,
gluten and hominy feed and alfalfa
meal were little changed in most of
