MEMOS FROM MARGARET BY MARGARET PRATT Kossuth Extension Home Economist Happy holidays are insightand you'll be wise to keep this list of plentiful foods in sight to help save on that food bill. Turkeys continue to take the feature spot as marketings are 4% above a year ago and storage stocks are higher. Tom turkeys are often sold up to ten cents a pound cheaper than the hens, so it is possible to get more turkey for your money by buying the large bird. Oranges and grapefruit offer plenty of Vitamin C at reasonable prices. By the way, when you want whole grapefruit sections do this. Place the grapefruit in hot water for about ten minutes before peeling and the membrane can be removed easily to leave whole segments. December marketings of broiler-fryers are expected to be extremely high. There are countless ways to use chicken so use it often. Toast the holidays with a glass of grape juice or make some fresh grape jelly, using a commercial powdered pectin. The recipe is in every box of pectin. Have you ever made German Christmas cookies using baking ammonium? More about these next week. 6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, Dec. 5 1967 DEVELOPMENTS • FROMDEVALOIS Even though domestic use of soybean meal is expected to increase three to five percent in the next year, soybean prices are likely to remain near the support loan rate plus average storage costs, according to an Iowa State University economist.- Large supplies of soybeans, lower soybean meal and oil prices and reduced stocks of cottonseed and linseed meal will figure in the increased use of soybean products, Bob Wisner; extension economist said. However, he added, urea will probably continue to pose strong competition for soybean meal. Wisner noted that the Nov. 1 estimate for the U. S. soybean crop was 985 million bushels, six percent larger than last year's record production. The Iowa estimate was at 147 million bushels, down two percent from 1966 output. Mid- November prices for No. 1 soybeans in Central Iowa were around $2.47 a bushel, 35 cents lower than a year ago, Wisner said. At the same time, soybean meal prices at Decatur were near $72 a ton, $7.50 lower than a year earlier. These lower prices, along with increased livestock numbers in Western Europe, are factors in an expected moderate increase in exports of soybeans and meal during the current marketing year. Exports are expected to increase in spite of strong competition from fishmeal and large foreign supplies of other fats and oils. Expectations of a large carryover of soybeans and a substantial increase in the 1968 cotton crop are seen as influences on future soybean prices. The 1967 carryover of soybeans was near 91 million bushels, and the 1968 carryover could be as high as 156 million bushels, Wisner said. If intentions of the 1968 cotton program are achieved, the cotton crop will show a considerable in- crease, which in turn will result in an increase in the supply of cottonseed oil and meal, Wisner observed. "Unless demand increasesun- expectedly, prices through early summer appear likely to remain near the loan rate plus average storage costs," Wisner added. The loan rate in Kossuth county is $2.46 a bushel. EXTENSION CALENDAR DEC. 5-8 p.m. - County 4-H meeting at Extension office.
