Adams Sun !NCRZAg,::NG CATTLE MAY CAUSE IdARKET TO SAG The present cattle situation calls for prompt marketing of all finished cattle as soon as they are ready, says Alden g. Orr, as- sistant professor of farm manage- ment at \\;\aslaington State Col- lege, in a news letter to The Snn. Cattle numlwrs in \\;Vashington have been increasing since 1937 and on January 1, 1939 were estimated to he 794,000 head. Cattle in the United States have again increased after a four-year decline which started with a major reduction in the drouth year, 1934. Cattle prices during rtcent months have been snpt)orte:l by short sui)l)lies and by a strong hog market, both of which may change materially in the next two months. So far, market- in/ of finished cattle in 1939 have been light in comparison with heavy marketings of finish- ed cattle during the correspon:l- ing period a year ago. This sit- uation indicates a possilfility of a less favorable cattle market during the late spring and early sUUalller inonttas. Marketin/s of Canadian cattle are expected to be heavy during April and May, and with an in- crease in hog slaughter during I the next two months, prices for i finished cattle can be expected to decline from thoir 'present favorable level. The present t strong demand for feeder and stocker cattle, however, can be expected to lend Some support to the finished cattle market. The price outlook for cattle as well as hogs during the next "feTx,, years is for a downward trend (':od wFth feed prl"ces if nor- mal crop production prevails. Livestock prices can he expected to decrease when total meat sup,lies approach a pre-depres- stun level. Farmers who are vflannin, to expand their herds , by purchasing feeder stock should avoid doing so at too high prices because of the present, zeneral livestock situation, says Mr. Orr [ who. presumably, has ample t i records from which to draw his] i conclusions. The Sun. however, ' does not pretend to be informs 11 on the subject ma'tters quoted. ! H*,,e ;' done TODAY " ' FLOOR SANDER 1 Exper Wo,'k F;ne Paintine C. F.

F. Drum- meir, agricultural economist at the State College of \\;Vashington. The latest available activity index of Business Week, show- inff conditions in early Marcia, was 99 compared with 80 a year earlier. The latest index of the New York Times was 90, com- Tmred with 80 for the same week last year. Both indexes had de- clined several points since Dec- ember 1938, which represented the culmination of about six months of rapid improvement. following a preceding period of rapid decline which began in the mid-summer of 1937. Early rep- resented the greatest business activity which has prevailed since the Big Depression began. Con- i ditions in early March this year represented a degree of activity about midway between early 1937, and the low point of June 1938 in the late recession. The prices of farm products in relation to commodities bougllt by farmers, as an average, in early 1939 were about the same as the average of the year 1938. Prices of both commddities bought and commodities sold by. farmers declined slightly during 193g. Automobile production is still 50 per cent Treater than it was a year ago. Residential con- struction is double and steel pro- duction nearly douMe the rate at that time. Ce, al and electric ower outlmt, railroad carload- iw-q.
