Combining of Events
Hurts Dairy Markets
The present disastrous slump in
dairy products markets has result
ed from a combination of overpro
duction and reduced consumption
of butter coupled with increased
production of butter substitutes, ac
cording to the current dairy situa
tion report issued by the Oregon
Production of creamery butter
for the first 11 months of 1929 ex
ceeded that of the same period in
1928 by some 25 million pounds.
Consumption decreased by 29 mil
lion pounds, while consumption of
butter substitutes mounted by a
similar amount. The federal out
look report a year ago said that a
national increase of one per cent
in dairy production would reach the
limit of present domestic consump
tion. Consumers can help the situation
by taking advantage of the abnor
mally low prices to increase their
use of wholesome dairy products,
says P. M. Brandt, head of the dairy
department at Oregon State college.
