One reason why Oregon stock
men are not feeding surplus wheat
held by Commodities Credit corpor
ation is that the price is 91 cents a
bushel, which is regarded as too
high. The price is 85 percent of the
parity of corn which is 71 cents. To
this the bureaucrats add 20, mak
ing the wheat surplus in the north
west 91 cents. The wheat is not in
competition with com as little corn
enters the northwest. There are 20,
000,000 bushels of surplus wheat in
Oregon, it is reported, but the Ore
gon feeder is penalized 20 cents a
bushel on Ms own wheat.
