urn sun around cents above

One reason that it is not pos-j
sible to tell exactly what the par
ity price of wheat is every day
is that the index prices paid by
farmers keeps changing from
month to month. It went up 2.4
percent from mid-December to
mid-January. Consequently the
parity price and the support
price of wheat and other farm
commodities went up 2.4 percent
also. At that rate the support
price level might soon rise en
ough to place a floor under the
price of wheat.
How do they figure the parity
price of wheat? They start with
the 1910-14 average farm price
which was 88.4 cents a bushel
Then they multiply the 88.4 by
the latest available parity index
of prices paid by farmers. At Mid
January that index stood at 251
FARM TRAINING FOR
VETERANS UNDER GJ. BILL
Although farm management
training under the G.I. Bill or
dinarily is limited to one veteran
on a single farm, the Veterans
Administration has announced
three conditions under which two
veterans may take training on
the same farm.
To qualify for the farm man
agement instruction, a veteran
must own his own farm or have
economic control of a farm. Vet
erans who do not own their own
farm may take institutional on-
percent of 1910-14. The calcula
tion produces $2.22 as the parity
price then. A year before it was
only $1.90 because the Index of
prices paid was lower. The base
price of 88.4 cents was the same
it does not change. The index
of prices paid has been going up
for several months. It may go
higher. If it does, so will the

County Agent News . .
With the drop of wheat prices
during the past week, many far
mers are beginning to wonder a
lot about parity and support
How high is wheat In relation
to parity? This is one of the ques
tions that people ask. Well the
price bobs around too much to
tell exactly for very long, but at
mid-January, at $2.81, the U. S.
average farm price of wheat was
27 points above parity. It was
37 points above the support price
level of 90 percent of parity.
The parity price then was $2.22,
while the support price level was
$2.00 a bushel. Thus, at mid
January, wheat averaged 59 cents
above parity and 81 cents a bu
shel above the support price lev
el. Currently, as of February 9, the
parity price of wheat probably is
somewhat higher, rather than
lower, while the actual price is
down sharply compared to mid
January. At Portland, closing bids
on ordinary export classes of
wheat on February 9 were 55
cents lower than on January 15.
